European Belarus Hangs 100 Flags

Charter ’97 reports that “European Belarus” performed a campaign promoting the oppositional red-and-white flag on October 29.

One hundred flags where hung along central streets in Minsk and created a lot of attention for the hour that they where allowed to hang there.

The activists was arrested and sentenced to heavy fines, however not for actually hanging the flags themselves (since it is not against any Belarusian law) but for “petty hooliganism”.
