The 2020 Belarusian protests, nicknamed the Slipper Revolution,[1][2] and the Anti-Cockroach Revolution[3] are a series of street protests against Belarus's president Alexander Lukashenko.[4] They began on 24 March 2020.

The protests are part of the Belarusian democracy movement. They are upset over the 2020 Belarusian presidential election, in which Lukashenko was controversially re-elected.[4] Many believed the election was rigged and unfair.
