Interviewed by Louis James, Editor, International Speculator
L: Tatich, I’m in Minsk, where I just recorded/participated in an illegal march through the city. Opposition supporters rallied… there has been some violence… I hear they’ve broken into a government building, but I have not been able to confirm that yet.

L: I should have stayed longer. The crowd seemed to be breaking up, so I came back to my flat, and now I’m seeing reports that the “special police” have turned violent. I left friends there…
