Police check hunger strikers in Mozyr

Vasily Alkhouski and Yury Shvets, who went on hunger strike, spent the last night in a car near the Mozyr oil refinery headquarters.

They were not allowed to stay in their office on the second floor, because they can remain in the building from 8:00 till 18:00, Radio Svaboda reports.

The police checked their IDs at night.

Alkhouski and Shvets say they won't end the hunger strike unless the plant management begins a dialogue.

Yury Shvets, the chairman of the primary organisation of the Belarusian independent trade union at the Mozyr refinery, declared a hunger strike on October 14 protesting against pressure on members of the independent trade union.

Deputy chairman Vasily Alkhouski, who is on a sick leave due to a broken leg, joined the trade union leader. They are going to spend the night in a car in front of the refinery headquarters.

The primary organisation of the Belarusian independent trade union at the Mozyr refinery has over 700 members.
