(en) THE MINIMUM PROGRAMME OF BIELORUS ANARCHICS [machine translation]
Mon, 26 Oct 2020 08:47:19 +0200
Minimum program proposal during the lifting period in Belarus. ---- Soviet and Lukashenko propaganda could make many people think that
anarchists in Belarus are just barricades and clashes with OMON. But anarchism is more than that. Somewhere behind the scenes lives the idea
that the people can live with dignity and without dictators or Bolsheviks. ---- Anachians in Belarus pointed out well before protests began
that getting rid of Lukashenko was just the first step in the fight for freedom of the people. The regime was not built in a day and its
destruction requires the will of people. All bureaucrats and officials who supported the regime should disappear. And their positions and
assignments should be demolished in order to make it impossible to recreate the dictatorship.
We are aware that today's revolution, despite its strong collective energy and self-organization, is still not anti-authoritarian. We don't
consider it, moreover, an appropriate and relevant solution to declare an anarchist program. However, even in this situation, we consider it
necessary to expose a minimum programme, necessary to avoid the formation of another authoritarian regime. We have been dominated by
ruthless rulers for over 100 years. It's time to show that the people can do good for themselves.
We repeat it again. The anarchist program is far more radical than the one presented below, but we tried to make realistic proposals,
considering the context of revolt and shift the vector of self-organization and popular self-government towards political and social
