This is a developing story, check back for updates. Last updated July 17 at 2:30 pm PST

For the past few weeks, Belarusians of over 70 cities on five continents worldwide came out to peaceful protests against the repressions ahead of the upcoming presidential elections in Belarus. Amnesty International described the government’s brutal crackdowns and violations of human rights as a “full-scale purge.”

For the second time within the past few weeks, Belarusians of Northern California have joined dozens of rallies held worldwide to stand in the Solidarity Line at Marina Green in San Francisco. 

Belarus is ruled by “the last dictator of Europe” since 1994. The 2020 presidential campaign started just two months ago but already proved to be the most violent: key alternative candidates and Belarusian democratic leaders were thrown in jail just weeks after the campaign started. Several hundred people (including journalists covering the events) were detained and arrested for taking part in peaceful protests against the government violating human and voter rights. 

For the past few weeks, peaceful protests in support of Belarus were held all over the world, which set up an unprecedented record. Some of the places where rallies and Solidarity Lines took place are listed below:
