BELARUSIAN OPPOSITION PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE HOLDS UNSANCTIONED RALLY...



Some 3,000 people came to an unauthorized rally in downtown Minsk on March 2, following an appeal by united opposition presidential candidate Alyaksandr Milinkevich, RFE/RL's Belarus Service reported. "Dear friends, I congratulate you -- freedom, justice, and the truth are coming to Belarus. And we will win the right to live as humans, to live in Europe and to be a free country. Long live Belarus!" Milinkevich told his supporters at the rally, which was the largest antigovernment demonstration in Belarus in the past several years. Some 1,000 police were deployed around the site of the planned rally but the demonstration, which took place nearby, went without any incidents.
