Abstract

The paper looks into a particular case of grassroot protest in post-Soviet Belarus triggered by the construction of a large scale ‘Chinese industrial park’ near the capital—Minsk. It examines the dynamic of its framing (2012-2017) within the hybrid media ecologies, highlighting the tensions between the key voices and the appropriation and subversion of activists’ frames by the mainstream media. The paper argues for a more inclusive media ecology and the need to account for the role of both state and alternative, traditional and new media in semi-authoritarian settings.
