Young Front Activist Siarhiei Murashka Is Remanded from Technical College in Zhodzina
17-year Siarhiei Murashka was the second-year student of Zhodzina Technical College. On 12 May he came to the classes. He was invited by the deputy director on education, who informed him about the order to remand him for participation in the action of 26 April, at which he was detained.
Murashka’s friends from the local Young Front branch held a picket of protest against his remand near Zhodzina City Executive Committee (CEC):
-- We held a picket of support to Siarhiei Murashka who was remanded from the college. He studies well, but the system decided to remand him. About 15 persons took part in the picket. We stood near Zhodzina CEC with posters “Smolski, Murashka, Chartkou, Krasouski, Savich: who is the next?”. It is the fifth case in Zhodzina when the authorities remand activists of our organization. We passed our petition and appeal to Zhodzina City Executive Committee. In our appeal we demanded to rehabilitate Siarhiei Murashka and stop the persecution of active youth in Zhodzina. The action ended without detention, but the police put down the names of its participants. I believe the authorities can continue the persecution campaign, -- said Paviel Krasouski, chair of local Young Front branch.
