        Lithuania signals artistic support and solidarity with the democracy movement in neighboring Belarus.  In a new exhibition, it presents the photographs of five Belarusian photojournalists who documented the mass protests against the ruler Alexander Lukashenko.  <a href=""><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="" alt="©" width="400" height="20" /></a>&nbsp;The&nbsp; pictures show the brutal repression by the security forces as well as the solidarity chains of women holding flowers in their hands.        </p><div>
        <p>In the dark, the recordings are projected onto the outer facade of the art gallery in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius designed by star architect Daniel Libeskind.  "We invite you to look at the photos where the protests take place and revolutions are born - outdoors," said museum director Milda Ivanauskiene.  <a href=""><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="" alt="©" width="400" height="20" /></a>&nbsp;The&nbsp; idea behind the exhibition "<a href=""><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="" alt="©" width="400" height="20" /></a>&nbsp;The&nbsp; Future of Belarus, Fueled by Women", which runs until March 4, is: Women lead the protests in Belarus, which is why the protests should also be represented by the works of women photographers.  "We want to support their struggle for freedom."</p>            

 The re was one common cause for all of us – the restoration of freedom and justice in Belarus, and women were at the forefront of this struggle. For many women this struggle became a personal struggle,” said Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tichanovskaya in a greeting at the opening of the exhibition .
