Baranavichy-based civil activist Ryhor Hryk intended to hold a picket on 12 November in order to inform the population about the failure of the police and the local authorities to abide by requirements of the Law “On National and Local Assemblies” (the matter is that civil activists Siarhei Auchynnikau, Anzhela Kambalava, Viktar Meziak and Viktar Tsiapin had been fined for holding an assembly, which was considered as a “mass event”).

In answer #01-15/418/8 of the Baranavichy City Executive Committee, signed by its Deputy Chairman Dz. Kastsiukevich, states that the executive committee didn't authorize the action as its aim didn't meet the reality.
