Some 60 people attended a pro-independence rally in Liberty Square in downtown Minsk on October 6.

The gathering formally took place as part of efforts by activists of the Narodnaja Hramada Belarusian Social Democratic Party and an opposition group called European Belarus to collect ballot-access signatures for parliamentary contenders.

It drew prominent politicians and activists such as Mikalaj Statkievič, Paval Sieviaryniec, Viacaslaŭ Siŭčyk, Maksim Viniarski, Nina Bahinskaja, Alies Maračkin and Dzianis Urbanovič.

The rally lasted for about an hour. A large number of police officers in plain clothes observed the gathering but did not intervene.
