According to, the people who were detained during the silent protests in Hrodna and are kept in prison, are keeping a hunger-strike of protest against the unlawful imprisonment. Civil activists from Hrodna learned about it when they started insisting on passing food parcels to the prisoners, whereas the guards refused to take them. Soon the guards had to admit that the arrested refused from food.

Among the arrested there are a poet and publicist Yury Humianiuk (sentenced to 12 days of arrest), Ales Dzianisau (10 days of arrest), several journalists and a civil and political activist Zmitser Bandarchuk.
