According to the "Zubr" press service , on March 14 the inscriptions "Free Political Prisoners!" appeared near the detention center where the "Zubr" activists Andrey Chyzh and Mikita Sasim are spending their prison terms. We should remind that M. Sasim and A. Chyzh were detained last Tuesday and on Wednesday sentenced to 7 and 10 days of jail respectively. Dozens of graffiti with "Zubr" logo were made in the center of Baranavichy. Citizens could see them in Savetskaya, Lenin and Telman streets and near the railway station.

In the town of Slonim (Hrdona region) "Zubr" members stuck posters with the organization logo and the slogan "Long Live Belarus!". The posters appeared near the railway station, in Lenin, Chyrvonaarmeyskaya, Savetskaya and other streets. They also made graffiti in a number of places.

Last week-end "Zubr" members also hanged white-red-white flags on the high-voltage wires at the entrance of the town of Malaryta (Brest region). They also stuck fly-sheets with the slogan "He Must Retire!". All these actions were a part of the celebration of the Constitution Day.
