Belarus: From Venezuela with Love
In Belarus people have been taking the streets for weeks against a dictator who is trying to suppress the protests with all the harshness of the state apparatus. Despite all the reprisals against the own population, they behave peacefully during all protests.
The picture linked in the tweet was taken last weekend. This photo was taken by Nadia Buzhan in Minsk and has been shared thousands of times on social media.
Inspired by the photo and the peaceful protests in Belarus, Rodrigo Figueredo, a well-known artist & human rights activist from Venezuela, painted a picture in solidarity with the people of Belarus.

This picture is for all free people in Belarus”
