Blogger Andrei Voynich: You Should Start With Simple Words "I'm Free"
ANDREI VOYNICH

There are hundreds of thousands of us, free people.

Only a free man is responsible for his actions.

Video blogger Andrey Voynich invites to the Meeting of Free People in his video.

- For two months we have been talking about problems together, - the blogger said in his address. - Every day at our pickets we have the same topics: no money, no job, no prospects. Some people do not have enough money for basic necessities, others do not have enough money for medicines.

What am I talking about? Not just to some people, but to almost everyone. And then there are stupid decrees, officials are stupid... You know all this yourself.

The same "carousel". Yes, this is our life. But can we only talk about problems?

What's next? This question was voiced on Freedom Square in Minsk on November 8 and echoed in social networks and kitchens.

The answer is generally clear. We need to do something. One should take responsibility for one's future on oneself. But what is behind these highfalutin words?

Only a free man is responsible for his actions. A slave is not responsible for anything. He only whines and complains about his heavy burden, rejoices at his master's crumbs and says that nothing depends on him.

Probably, that's where we should start, with the simple words "I'm free". With the understanding of what follows from this, with the awareness that you need to decide for yourself what will be your next step. And the next one. And the next step which follows.

The first steps are the most difficult. It's like with a child: sometimes he stumbles, sometimes he falls. Then the steps become more confident. And at some point you look around and see: wow, you are not alone! There are hundreds of thousands of us, free people. We know what to do, we know where to go, we know how to make our lives and our country decent.

Come to the Meeting of Free People on November 15th at 18.00 at Kastrychnitskaya Square in Minsk. Together we can do a lot. Together we will decide, #what's next (#чтодальше).
