Power of the people

I´m sure some of you, or many of you, have already seen pictures of this protest from a week ago in Belarus https://yle.fi/uutiset/3-11497365 . If this doesn´t show the power of an angry group of people then I don´t know what does. They are protesting against their president, who has been in power for 26 years and who rigged their latest election.

 

They are very brave and I hope that their or russias army will not take action against them.

Hey Red-

Maybe I am getting cynical, but it doesn't seem like people's effort to contest the election or to out Lukashenko really worked.

I read today the UK and maybe others will impose sanctions.

But I don't know if international sanctions really hurt anybody but the poor in the county.

(And as a matter of fact, it didn't seem like the protests against Putin installing himself for life, or the protests again the Chinese takeover of Hong Kong really worked either.)

Am I way off base with my understanding?

(And if anybody thinks this something better to discuss at the other site, that is fine, just let me know. Thanks)
