The protests began when he declared election victory last week with 80% of the vote over opposition leader, Sviatiana Tshikhanouskaya.

Opponents say the election was rigged to disguise the fact that President Lukashenko had lost support.

Video evidence of the president’s security forces brutalizing protestors has started to circulate, provoking further backlash inside the country.

Thousands of workers are refusing to return to their jobs … police officers and news media officials are resigning … and even paramilitary personnel within the Interior Ministry have left.

All of this is posing an unprecedented threat to Lukashenko’s rule.

In true dictator form, Lukashenko called the protestors “rats” and “trash” and has even been quoted as saying, “We held elections already. Until you kill me, there will be no other elections.”

The human rights group, Amnesty International, has condemned the widespread torture of the thousands of arrested protestors.

These protestors have been released from prison with bruises all over their bodies, saying they were forced to lie in the dirt as police kicked and beat them … some were stripped and forced to listen to the screams of other victims.

Lukashenko may be able to turn off the Internet in Belarus but he can’t stop the world from exposing his tyranny.
