Today at 12:00 noon "Silent Watch" started in Brest. It's an action of solidarity with the Young Front members prosecuted by the regime and with political prisoners. Its participants stay in Lenin Square in the center of the city, near the "Zero Kilometre" monument. Sitting on the ground, they silently read the Bible. After a certain period of time the participants of the protest are to change.

Three protesters are in the square now. It is planned that at 8 p.m. new people will come. Policemen have not arrived yet, possibly because of a heavy rain in Brest.

The protest "Silent Watch" is to last for a day and to end tomorrow at 12 p.m.
