Hunger Striker From Brest Fainted Several Times
Owners and drivers of taxi-shuttles in Brest continue hunger strike for 14th day. One of the protesters, an entrepreneur Lubou Razanovich, has fallen unconscious several times. My legs went numb, and I was unable to speak, the entrepreneur told to the Radio Svaboda.
It can repeat any moment, as I feel bad now, however I am not going to call in ambulance, as I believe that we do not owe anything to the state. Mrs. Razanovich is a disabled person of second category. She says that even if she would be taken to hospital forcibly, she would all deny medical help.
13 persons are taking part in the hunger strike that started on July 5. They protest against the fee for using means of transportation in business activities paid by owners of cars imported to Belarus before 2004.
