At 6 p.m. on 2 May about 40 activists of Young Front, Young Belarus, European Belarus and BPF Youth lined up in Kastrychnitskaya Square in Minsk with portraits of Mikalai Autukhovich in their hands and demanded that Autukhovich and other political prisoners were released from prison.  

The riot police immediately pressed the youngsters out of Kastrychitskaya Square to Bahdanovich Street. There the latter ones were encircled and guarded to Arlouskaya Street along the river Svislach. On the way several people were severely beaten.

The action was videoed by cameramen of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and security services. Actions of solidarity with political prisoners will be held during eight days in succession.
