The women wanted to protest against the actions of the lawyer Natallia Zakharchanka and the verdict of Judge of the Leninski District Court of Minsk Halina Tarasava about their eviction from the dormitory of "Building Trust No. 12" without providing alternative accommodation to stay.

The picket was
to have taken place on 2 October 100 meters away from the prosecutor's office and the court buildings, located on Dobrolyubov Street, along the course of pedestrian traffic in the direction of these buildings from the stop of the public transport “Polytechnicum”.

The reason for the picket ban was that the organizers intended to hold their event in a place that hadn't been determined as suitable for mass events by the authorities. According to the received answer, mass events without participation of the authorities can be held only in one place, at the ground near the stadium “Khimik”, on the address Chelyuskintsev Street, 64c.

The lawyer of the independent trade union of Radio Electronic Industry Aliaksei Yauhenau says that the women had no other go, because they had lost their homes.

The administration of the hostel of the building trust No. 12, located near the house in Zaslonau Street, 29, threw Sviatlana Ivaniushava and Ina Tsiarelia out, together with 4-year and 16-year-old children. Earlier, during the consideration of the case in court in connection with new circumstances, the women signed a settlement agreement with the building of the trust No. 12. Judge Tarasava and lawyer Zakharchanka said that it wouldn't have any negative consequences for them, but as a result the women were evicted from the hostel,” says Aliaksei Yauhenau.

It should be noted that the picket was to take place on the International Day of Non-Violent Action, 2 October.
