Barysau Opposition Activists Demand to Stop Harassment of Non-state Newspapers
According to RFE/RL
At 5.30 p.m. on 12 August the action of support to the newspapers Barysauskia Naviny and Kurier iz Borisova started in Barysau. These editions were first deprived of distribution through the state distribution net. Then it was prohibited to street vendors to send these newspapers outdoors. The editorial boards go to court almost every day to attend consideration of suits against their newspapers. Workers of Barysauskia Naviny and Kurier iz Borisova, representatives of Zubr, Young Front and Volat movements came to the central square of Barysau, opposite the executive committee, with newspapers in their hands. Despite the cold weather several dozens of citizens came to the square to support the editorial board of the independent editions.
