Art Syadziba closed for third time

The opening of Art Syadziba project scheduled for December 6 in Minsk was not held.

Organisers received a document an hour before the opening saying the agreement to lease premises on 4 Maskvina Street would be terminated on December 10. The organisers decided the opening ceremony was senseless in those conditions, Radio Svaboda reports.

The premises belong to Sukno company. It told the lessee, RefOilProduct company, that Sukno needed the subleased premises for own use. The lessee had to terminate the agreement which was signed on November 20, 2012.

The lessee was summoned to the Minsk city executive committee and ordered not to sign the agreement with Art Syadziba project. The lessee said the agreement had been already signed. After that representatives of the hygiene service and firemen came to inspect the building and imposed huge fines.

It is the third time when the agreement with us has been terminated for no reasons. I wrote a letter to Lukashenka's administration yesterday asking to explain to us why they persecute us. We are not a religious or political organisation. We are a cultural institution that holds literature, musical, poetic and artistic events. Maybe I will get an answer. We decided that we will go to the ideology department of the Minsk city executive committee to learn why we are being harassed. It's an outrage. They suppress the Belarusian culture and art and don't allow any creative initiatives. We haven't done anything to be harassed, Art Syadziba director Pavel Belavus says.
