Vasil Paliakou, a member of the organizing committee of the People's Assembly in Homel, was detained after 4 p.m. on 8 November. At first he was taken to the Savetski District Police Department, and then – to a pre-trial detention center. He managed to inform his friends that he was charged under Article 23.34 of the Cofe of Administrative Offenses, “violation of the order of holding mass events”.

The Homel authorities react to the preparation of the second People's Assembly with preventive arrests. In particular, civil activist Illia Mironau was punished with 10 days of arrest for handing out invitations to the action. Uladzimir Katsora, a member of the organizing committee, was issued with an official warning about the inadmissibility of violating the Law “On Mass Events”, though assemblies are regulated by the Law “On National and Local Assemblies”.
