Workers hold a banner reading “we are not cattle, we are not sheep, we are workers of MTZ, we are not 20 people, we are 16,000” as they march during a rally near the Minsk Tractor Works Plant in Minsk, Belarus, Friday, Aug. 14, 2020. Workers at the plant demanded a new election and called for the release of all those who were detained in a brutal police crackdown on demonstrators challenging the official results of Sunday’s presidential vote.
