This is about 66 days of civil resistance in Belarus happening right this moment. These are stories told by three women from Belarus, by three citizens with a different experience of life, love, quest for free- dom, activism, and participation in the protests.
Expect little analysis or academic research from us – although some of us are from academia we’re still in amidst of everything to even want to distance ourselves from the events that are driving through our very bodies.
Expect her story in the making that you can witness through our eyes.
Expect stories of hope, struggle, solidarity, and sisterhood, as well as pain, homophobia, and violence against women. But above all – stories of enormous creativity and lust for freedom.
