Vleugelslag

Lied voor Belarus

In 1999 en 2000 werden in Wit-Rusland vier mannen opgepakt. Sindsdien is niets meer over hen vernomen.
Alle vier hadden zij kritiek op de regering van dictator Alexander Lukashenko.
Het lied “Vleugelslag” vertelt het verhaal van een dochter. (Met dank aan Valeriya Krasovskaya)

Vleugelslag

Song for Belarus

In 1999/2000 four men were arrested in Belarus. Nothing has been heard of them ever since.
What all four men shared were their critics on the government of dictator Alexander Lukashenko
On a square in Eindhoven (Holland) four trees were planted to honour them.
There and at many more places they are commemorated every year on September 16th.
The song “Vleugelslag” (Wing-beat) tells the story of a daughter. (much gratitude to Valeriya Krasovskaya)
