Thousands of students marked the first day of term on Tuesday by going on strike and taking to the streets in support of the protests, many carrying the historic Belarusian white-red-white flag used by the opposition.
“We came to support the people, to show our political stance and demonstrate that there is no need to stay at home, to be afraid,” said one student.
