An application for holding the Independence March was filed to the Minsk city executive committee on April 25.
Organisers plan to have the march on May 14.
They ask permission for holding a march from the National Library to Independence Square on the carriageway of Independence Avenue and have a meeting on Independence Square.
The Independence March was initiated by the movement For Freedom. Yury Hubarevich, Ales Lahvinets, Siarhei Vazniak, Ihar Lalkou and Dzianis Sadouski are the applicants.
As BelaPAN learnt from Yury Hubarevich, a deputy head of the movement For Freedom, the idea to organise the Independence March appeared after the address of the head of state to the nation on April 22.
“We think we see the situation when the authorities and opposition say the same words about independence. Aliaksandr Lukashenka said in his address independence was a value,” Hubarevich notes.
He says that after these words “we would like to see the authorities' deeds confirming their readiness to have a dialogue with society, because the split society cannot effectively resist external threats”.
Hubarevich thinks the authorities should prove “their readiness to defend independence and contribute to the society consolidation not in words, but in deeds”.
“The authorities should not only permit the march, but also join it. The referendum to change the state symbols that split society was held on May 14, 1995,” the deputy head of the For Freedom movement said.
