"2007 — it was a year of economic stagnation. Indeed Belarusian magic that called the Belarusian economy clearly began to show itself as the price of energoelementy started walking in the direction of real prices. It immediately took away people guarantees to which they are accustomed. But people have not accustomed to the fact that so their rights defend, you need to learn to protest.
Need to remember these forgotten for their concepts as trade unions, demonstrations, pickets, demonstrations. After this case people, and the opposition parties, organizations can only logistical support to assist this. Now, when people understand it, then we will quicken civilian society and can be wait eakanamichnyh social configurations. Year, of course, was a year of stagnation in all areas. "

This case Fedoruk and Korban, five case, the tribunal in Minsk case soligortsev, Ivan Shyla, Anastasia Azarko Jaroslav Hryshchenya from Baranovichi. Gomel Then the Young case, Catherine Solovevoj Polotsk and of course, the courts against Dmitry Dashkevich and Artur Finkevich last cuprats.
All year regime tried to stop the Young suspend Belarusian youth movement Belarusian deprive future. But in spite of this repression of the Young substantiated that the new generation reveals new properties of the Belarusian movement — faith, strength, nyazlomnasts. It makes no compromises on any transaction, it is not kuplyaetststsa, it does not break. And in this I see a great prospect for the democratic opposition to the public movement in Belarus. "
