From Belarus to the USA: fighting state repression

The 1st to the 9th of April was the week in solidarity with those facing state repression in the USA. At the same time, we have just seen mass arrests in Belarus, after the biggest protests since 2010. What do we mean by state repression? How can these two governments, one “democratic” and one “dictatorial”, have such similar responses to citizen discontent? And what parallels can we draw with our own island? Ask these questions and more at Cafe Kino next week!
