A ‘hunger strike of solidarity’ with the former candidate for presidency Aliaksandr Kazulin goes on in Brest for the 5th day. Members of the Belarusian Social-Democratic Party (Hramada) and activists of other political parties and public organizations are taking part in the protest.

Since today a schedule according to which new members would join the protest is placed in the office of Brest regional branch of the Belarusian Social-Democratic Party (Hramada). As said by the head of the organization Ihar Maslouski, almost 30 names of the party members had been written down there.

’We saw the results of research by Professor Manaeu that only about 45% of population of Belarus know that Kazulin is behind bars now. That is why this hunger strike is carried out in a succession to attract more attention. We have an intention to continue the protest until Mr. Kazulin is on hunger strike in prison,’ Maslouski said to Radio Svaboda.

As we have informed, each person who wants to join the hunger strike is proposed to abstain from food from 1 to 5 days.

The former candidate for presidency Aliaksandr Kazulin and a former deputy Siarhei Skrabets have announced an indefinite hunger strike protesting against ‘total lawlessness in Belarus’ with the aim to draw attention of the UN Security Council to the situation in Belarus.
