An hour or so before the demonstration the BSU rector Siarhei Ablameika canceled the planned meeting with the students.
On December 2, a student event called "March of love and solidarity" was held in the center of Minsk. It had been announced in the social networks, but was not permitted by the local authorities. Students opposed the introduction of payment for exam retakes.
They first came to BSU building near the train station, stood at the entrance to the building, but were not allowed inside. Then the young people went to the main building on Independence Square, where the doors were also closed. For a while, students chanted "Rector, come out!", Euroradio informs.
Today was supposed to be a meeting of the BSU rector Siarhei Ablameika with students of the institution, but the University website had an announcement about postponement of the event, allegedly in connection with possible provocations.
Law enforcers copied the personal data of some of the participants of the street rally.
