During the March of Neighbors that took place in Belarus on Sunday, law enforcers apprehended 416 people. Vesna human rights protection centre reported that.

Most of the detained were taken in Minsk, but some of them were taken in other cities like Vitebsk, Brest, Grodno, Zhodino, Lyakhovichi and Borovlyany.

According to DW, rally members switched tactics, giving the police harder time when chasing them. Instead of having a big rally in certain district of Minsk or a massive march on central streets, they gathered in smaller groups in various districts of Minsk and other cities. When militants tried to disperse them, people spread out and shaped the column somewhere else.

Law enforcers used tear gas against the rally members; some of the detainees were beaten up with police batons.

Protest actions in Minsk and other cities in Belarus have been running for almost four months. People stand against the resuls of the presidential election that took place in August. Back then, the Central Election Committee announced that Alexander Lukashenko won the race. The Belarusian opposition did not recognize these results; neither do the EU and the U.S.
