Princeton students in dialogue with Belarussian students in exile at European Humanities University, Vilnius, Lithuania
Is the current U.S. uprising focused, for now, on equality, justice, and civil rights - initiated largely by Black Lives Matter - related to the ongoing revolution in Belarus? Other recent protests suggest connections between worldwide movements, such as in Greece against austerity policies, France for economic justice, Great Britain for Brexit against membership in Europe, Ukraine against corruption, the Middle East and Asia against authoritarian regimes, and everywhere for addressing global warming. What are student goals in these protests? How do you propose communicating with people who hold opposing views on politics or assumptions about change?
