(en) Belaruss, And without presidential POORLY?

Date Wed, 22 Dec 2010 10:38:26 +0200

This is one of the slogans under which the anarchists were made on Dec. 19, 2010 during the rally on October Square in Minsk. Their presence was accompanied by a game of drummers from Samba band and distributing leaflets with the sarcastic headline "Election Program anarchists", which explains in detail the position of anarchists about the elections, the authorities in general and of society. The text of the leaflets can be seen here. The activists held banners "The alternative is" and "Freedom for political prisoners Nicholas Dedkov, Igor Olinevichu, Alexander Frantskevich, as well as posters" Nashto us new pans? "," Worker remember: do not Stribro bureaucrat spionerit Democrat, "" Why should we president? We can ourselves! " plowa_-16.jpg When the main part came to the area moved towards Government House, a column of anarchists walked with them along Independence Avenue, charging various slogans, and upon arrival at the place sold out.

After all, the main goal to bring the message of its position around was successfully achieved. Slogan, which served as the headline for this article was originally meant to be a universal statement, implying a negative answer, at the end of the evening turned tragic in a rhetorical question.And the answer is, as you know, weak. Everything seems to be developing their usual pattern, gathering at the square, groups of people pressing on the approaches, and then allowed to even walk down the avenue. Yes, it is allowed. When it began, "grinder" who want to assert their rights was not so much. Let's try to clarify why this happened? Perhaps a few of the participants in yesterday's The Square could clearly answer why they had come.

The most common answer would be "Because I'm tired of that country ruled by one man" or the like. But you will agree, this is only reason, but certainly not the purpose of the parish. Some, mostly newcomers in opposition circles, come to speak for their candidate, and who is the candidate, what program it is often irrelevant because the choice of determines the range of communication: if you're in an environment "EÑrapeyskay The Youth," then you for Sannikov, if the UCP, then for Romanchuk (though voted for him already bitterly regretted it in the light of recent events).There are exceptions, but they are few. Those who are older and experienced, come to The Square (as well as other opposition rallies such as Freedom Day or sh) because they can not go for them this kind of tradition, they are no longer as active as before, but still lost the little hope that a sudden, but will change something, and suddenly, and come to The Square is not 5-10, but hundreds of thousands of people here then ...

Some go entirely without hope, just walking around, because conscience is not can not come.They may only and is free, only if and happy, in these few hours of The Square. 0034wd6h.jpeg Here are just a just cause, but no goal came. Most, sadly, come to no purpose, just to stand and listen (if you are among the ten) candidates, and possibly to participate in something more interesting and effective than voting for different Pastanovy about freedom or the release of political prisoners; or an invitation Paznyak and Survily in "parallel government".Yes, we do not mind, yes, raising his hand in assent, well, come tomorrow. You know why? Because without the presidents are weak. People may have some of the most active people in this country, can not live without the president, or candidate, or any other leader (coordinator of the group, etc.).

How is this possible? How is it possible for people to leave comments on the Internet: "And what good is to come today, all candidates are in fact detained"? This is possible only when people have no clear purpose. We must finally understand: Rights do not give, they are taken. Bothered by the current government? So be ready to take action to achieve this goal.If a person goes to The Square and thinks that only one state and inspirational speeches regime will fall, then he gets his due. You must be able not only to demand rights, but to be able to protect them, defend their dignity and to protect the people who stand to you, shoulder to shoulder. Agree, if a crowd of 5,000 put her horn and would not run in opposite directions from one column of riot police, then the protest would not necessarily result. The problem is that people who come to The Square, do not feel even in each other comrades.

Yes, there are still those who are willing to stand under the blows of clubs and protect his own body, but most are inclined to run away without looking back. Do not you know that can attack the police? Knew. Then what is it? Can not you tell the difference between when the doors break provocateurs in civilian clothes, and when the protesters? Can. Why nobody stopped them, if you were tuned to a peaceful demonstration? Because everybody thought that it should do the candidates can do is their plan. And because all subconsciously were still set to radical actions.Maybe it's time to finally bring his subconscious to the conscious level of action to achieve the goal? Time to understand that while we will not have goals, while we feel uncomfortable among a growing number of GBshnikov in stocks, while people will not be configured to decisive action to protect their interests, while we will adjust to the revolution "after work" (come at 18.00 tomorrow, and indefinitely) as long as people calling to defend their freedom and decentoinstvo will take up the phrase "and for what? why waste human life ... ..

Finally, while we will believe what they say, presidents and candidates, and wait for instructions from them, until we walk in handcuffs and with a gag in the mouth. "Woe is me ... if my beliefs will vary depending on the beats of my pulse." Schiller
