“Protesters clash with police in Belarus, 150 people arrested,” Kyodo News, 25 March 2005, http://www.japantoday.com/e/?content=news&cat=8&id=332026 (from Coming Anarchy).
Pro-democracy protesters clashed with police in Minsk near the palace of Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko on Friday and 150 protesters were arrested, Russia’s Interfax news agency reported.
The police made the arrests after some 1,000 pro-democracy protesters reportedly tried to gather near the presidential palace, demanding democratic reform.
As you can tell by the national shield, the Belarussian government never got over its Soviet fix
Interesting, not only are Belarussia’s historical symbols much more “European”
They still have a government-in-exile from the post-World-War-I days. Nifty!
