Minsk: Plainclothes riot police abduct protesters from bus stop (video)

Here is another video that shows plainclothes riot policemen brutally detaining people who were about to take part in Wednesday’s March of non-parasites in Minsk.

“Four persons were abducted from the bus stop, allegedly by riot policemen (OMON). There were two unmarked minibuses, they were full of people,” a witness told Belsat.eu

On March 15, Constitution Day, marches of non-parasites have been held in Minsk, Mahiliou and Hrodna. According to people who protesting the so-called ‘parasite’ law, Lukashenka’s Decree Nr 3 is unconstitutional. Many protesters were grabbed by riot policemen in civvies who failed to introduce themselves and show their IDs.

Decree Nr 3 signed by Alyaksandr Lukashenka in April, 2015 established the obligation of the citizens of Belarus, foreign citizens permanently residing in Belarus, stateless persons, who did not participate in the financing of public spending or participated in such financing less than 183 days (six months – ed.) in the past year, to pay a fee of 20 basic units (appr. $230).
