10th anniversary of journalists’ striped clothing march


Today is the 10th anniversary of the independent journalists’ striped clothing march in Minsk. They expressed their solidarity with an ORT reporter Pavel Sharamet who was being kept in prison in Belarus at that time. Journalists put on striped clothing and came to Bangalor Square where a meeting in defense of the freedom of the press took place. The poet Slavamir Adamovich sewed up his mouth in protest of the violation of the freedom of speech in our country.

About 5 thousand people participated in the meeting.
