On 7 March members of the democratic society of Slonim applied to the Slonim District Executive Committee with the application for authorization of a rally dedicated to the Freedom Day, 25 March (the date of the proclamation of the Belarusian People's Republic in 1918), in the city park.

The Slonim DEC gave a formal refusal: though the application had been filed on 7 March, it had been registered on 11 March, whereas an application is to be filed 15 days before the action. However, the democratic activists intend to hold their action anyway.
