At 12 a.m. activists of the civil initiative “Our Alternative” held an action within the framework of the campaign “Stop Drinking – Start Living!”. Zmitser Karashkou, Vasil Takarenka, Andrei Tsianiuta and Kastus Zhukouski handed out anti-alcoholic postcards near the central supermarket of Homel, congratulating passers-by on the International Women’s Day.

However, soon the activists were approached by policemen in civvies, who started interfering with the action. They pushed Kanstantsin Zhukouski’s minor daughter and detained Vasil Takarenka.
