Radio Liberty reported (BEL) less than two hours ago that the police are beating the protesters who go down into the subway to go home and then return to the square.
There's a picture of one of the boys with an impressive scratch on his body; the boy, Mikhail Avdeev, says the cop who attacked him introduced himself as Vladimir Naumov, interior minister of Belarus, and that he wanted to tear apart the white-red-white flag but failed to and ended up just tying it into knots.
Sounds like a deranged cop to me - but it's not funny at all.
It's also sad to realize how tiny the crowd there is. Pictures at this site - http://news.lyakh.org/ - are shocking...

In my dream tonight, Kozulin died and that sort of explained the rumor of his breakup with Milinkevich: they didn't want to reveal his death, didn't want to demoralize the crowd, but people felt something was wrong and kept inventing all sorts of explanations. I'll keep you updated on what's going on in the parallel Belarus...:)
