‘Perspective’ Activists Ask Permit for 19 November Meeting
According to the chair of the republican NGO Perspective Anatol Shumchanka, at present the main problems of entrepreneurs are connected with the enforcement of presidential decree #760 on 1 January 2008. Since that time individual entrepreneurs will not be able to employ workers except for close relatives. Even then the maximal number of employees is three.
According to Shumchanka, it was decided to hold a meeting because the state does not let the entrepreneurs to express their opinion about small business to the wide public circles and the country’s authorities.
Last time the Perspective held a meeting in Banhalor Square in Minsk on 10 September. The action gathered about 1 000 people.
