Protesters in Poland and Lithuania set up tent cities on border with Belarus demanding change
Belarusians from Lithuania have joined the action of the National Anti-Crisis Administration and set up a tent city near the Lithuanian-Belarusian border. The main purpose of the action is to call upon the international community to pay more attention to the situation in Belarus, as well as to immediately impose sanctions against Lukashenka’s regime.
The Belarusians, who now live in Lithuania, have set up a tent camp near the border crossing point Medininkai-Kamenny Loh. Concerned Lithuanians also joined the action.
“We demand, we ask, that we are helped to return home,” said one of the protesters.
Passing cars honked, with drivers expressing their support.
The main purpose of the action of the National Crisis Management is an appeal to the European Union to introduce the 4th package of sanctions as soon as possible and to accelerate the development of the 5th package against Lukashenka’s regime.
The demand to the Lukashenka’s regime: to immediately open the land borders on the part of Belarus for free movement of citizens.
The actions are legal and coordinated with the local authorities.
