Minsk. We again go to the stele, as well as to the surrounding areas. Get lost in small groups and only move together. Regions. We go out to the centers of our cities and disperse. You know better than we do the most difficult places for security officials on your streets. Motorists, block the roads! Yesterday, on some streets of Minsk, it was ordinary drivers who actually blocked the movement of special equipment!
- call on the authors of the Belarusian Telegram channel NEXTA.
At the same time, the following advice sounds: it is premature not to go out to the central streets, where "they can take into a trap," get up "in the couplings", sing songs to raise morale, "retreat and regroup." Separately, there is a call "to disable special equipment and transport vehicles as much as possible," but not to use violence against the security officials themselves.
A general strike is planned for Tuesday, August 11, with the declared goal of "free elections and the release of political prisoners."
