Thousands in Belarus protest against the tax on parasitism
Thousands, Belarus,  Protest, Against, Parasitism

More than a thousand of people protesting against the “tax on parasitism” walked along the central streets of Belarusian city of Brest and blocked traffic flow on the city’s main motorway.

The protesters chanted “Enough!”, “Lukashenko, go away!”, “We don’t want to pay thieves, parasites and cops”. “No salary – there’s a tax, the deputy’s purse. The real sponger is the person who invented the decree.”

A number of the participants in the unsanctioned action – about 150 people – agreed to go into the local administrative building to meet with the city mayor Aleksandr Rogachuk.
