Slonim: “Farby Voseni” against pickets
officials of the Slonim District
been trying to interfere with the holding
of events held by the Slonim association of democratic forces. They
always plan public events at the time when opposition's pickets and
rallies are held.
Thus, in the beginning of August the members of the Slonim branch of the Belarusian Popular Party Ivan Sheha and Viktar Marchyk filed two applications to the Slonim District Executive Committee for holding two meetings in Slonim on 8 September. They intended to hold one of the pickets in the first half of the day, and the next – in the second half of the day. According to Ivan Sheha, he intended to hold these pickets against the placement of foreign military bases on the territory of Belarus.
These days the Slonim District Executive Committee received another answer, signed by the head of the Slonim District Executive Committee Iosif Pauliukevich. Mr. Pauliukevich writes: “The Slonim District Executive Committee informs you that you are denied in holding a picket in the city part in Opernaya Street on 8 September 2013 as far as the holiday “Autumn Colours” will take place on the indicated day.
