2 Reporters Are Sentenced to Jail for Filming Protests

Two journalists have been sentenced to serve two years in a Belarussian jail. Darya Chultsova, 23, and Katsiaryna Andreyeva, 27, were arrested in November 2020 for filming and live-streaming protests for their employer, Belsat TV. They were found guilty of “organizing a demonstration that grossly violates public order” by streaming the protests. The American Embassy in Belarus calls their conviction “an attempt to silence the media.”

    All they did was film live video of a protest they had no part of other than reporting on it like their job would why would they target the two women given the report to do this and not Target on focusing on suing the Polish Network for letting them film this if it was such a big deal cuz normally you would sue the company and not put someone in prison and just get a bunch of money from the company

      It is easier to target individuals than it is to target corporations. The Belarusians know it is a bogus charge, they would be laughed out of court during an international lawsuit. As the govt already had the women in custody, it is easier to make an example of them.

    This is happening in India right now. A woman was arrested last week for "inciting violence" when the only thing she did was share a protest tool kit used by greta thunberg......... This is not uncommon. Few months ago a 14 year old was doxxed for sharing a carrd on Twitter regarding the farmers protests going on in India. If you've clicked on this video, please hear our voices as well. They've silenced the farmers long enough, now they're silencing whoever is talking about it.
