Prepare...Time For Action

Well after an incredibly slow start things seem to be picking up pace in Minsk tonight. I have to express disappointment that the BBC haven't mentioned this once. Reports claim the Denim Revolution now has a stage in October square, and bands are playing live. Echoes of Ukraine anyone? In addition Alyaksandr Milinkevich has called on those gathered (around 15,000 and down from last night) to call their friends and families and to prepare to stay the night.

Will the people follow Milinkevich? It remains to be seen.

Will the authorities disperse the protest? Riot police are on stand by.

Long Live Democracy, Long Live Belarus!

Stand by for further updates...
