|Protesters in Minsk|
Read this Times article about how protesters in Russia and Belarus are gathering and then showing their disdain for their government by clapping. The police are aware of the tactic and are arresting people for even these ludicrous reasons, causing the protesters to resort to protesting by having their phones ring simultaneously.
What does this leave us with? Repressive governments arresting people for having their phones go off! It is an interesting form of free speech and non-violent protest that results in people being charged with...what exactly? I like the trend. Keep it up people!
