Minsk authorities ban LGBT picket
On 6 April it became known that Minsk City Executive
Committee rejected the application of Aliaksei Kulik, activist of the human
rights project "GayBelarus" Aliaksei Kulik for holding a picket
"Day of Silence: We keep silent to be heard". LGBT activists intended
to hold a picket near houses #8-10
The official reason for the ban is that the picket would create obstacles to the movement of pedestrians and traffic in Mayakouski Street and to the functioning of the organizations located nearby.
