Belarus Election and Repression Footage

In light of Bob’s earlier post on Belarus-Russia energy relations, I came across this protest video made by the guys at Razam and www.bialorus.tk around the time of Lukashenko’s re-election. The production is professional, if not overdone (with heavy metal music), but the raw footage from Belarus is valuable regardless of your viewpoint. The video highlights the media crackdown and the disappearances of numerous opposition leaders. I am consistently impressed by how dissidents have successfully been using sites like YouTube and Google Video to spread their messages.
