Lukashenka cartoon site online at mirror

Radio Free Europe reports that the anti-Lukashenka cartoons whose creators' flats were raided Tuesday can now be found at http://mult.batke.net/. Pay a visit and show your support!

Reporters Without Borders adds a bit about the project's history:

Created a year ago, the website published two-minute-long animated cartoons satirizing Belarusian politicians, opposition leaders and ordinary people. Some of the cartoons were about Lukashenko and electoral fraud, Belarus' isolation and Lukashenko's well-known fondness for sports. The Third Way members drew the cartoons at home and circulated them among themselves by e-mail.

Meanwhile, Belarusian prosecutors have opened a criminal case against the cartoonists.
