what is going on there?

The European Parliament today took a strong stance against Belarus' treatment of its Polish minority. MEPs today condemned recent police action and legal measures against Belarus' Union of Poles and urged Minsk to release political activists.

So you start a discussion on a topic you are not willing to even read a few articles on? Read the article and form a statement or a question then, if you're interested.

Excuuuuuse me! I was wondering if there are any people in Bielarus on this forum, and their opinion.

You'd like them to end up in prison or something? ;):

That's another subject. On one hand, I do think people should be responsible for what they're putting out there on the internet, on the other hand, who would I want to be the guardian of that gate?

On related note, FCC is working on a plan:

I'm not sure if you realise what this means in Belarusian reality? ;): "President Lukashenko said identification and registration of all web users and publications would now be mandatory in an effort to curtail online dissidence and opposition."

"He told journalists that a new Internet bill, proposed Tuesday, would require the registration and identification of all online publications and of each Web user, including visitors to Internet cafes. Web service providers would have to report this information to police, courts and special services.

Lukashenko has ruled Belarus with an iron fist since 1994, weeding out opposition and dissidents. All television channels and most print media have become state-controlled, and many of the independent newspapers ordered closed have taken refuge in cyberspace.

Last June, Belarus adopted a media bill that allowed the government to close Web sites without warning and imprison journalists for reproducing foreign media reports."
