Minsk: authorities ban pickets of solidarity with political prisoner Kazulin
The Minsk local authorities forbade holding of pickets of solidarity with political prisoner Alexander Kazulin, former presidential candidate.
As BelaPAN learnt from Siarhei Martseliau, an applicant for picket, member of the Belarusian Social Democratic Party (Hramada), the official letter of the Minsk city executive committee doesn’t explain the reasons for a ban. ‘The answer just says a picket is not permitted. It’s not said there why it is forbidden, said Martseliau.
The party activists planned to hold pickets of solidarity with political prisoner Alexander Kazulin opposite a travelling tent show on Arlouskaya Street on 6-7 July. The pickets were to be dedicated to the second anniversary of the law proceeding over the politician.
Bear in mind that the site opposite the tent show on Arlouskaya Street is on the list of sites, where mass actions are permitted.
