The court prohibit the left movements to hold meetings


According to the materials published in Lugansk newspapers, the Leninskiy district court of Lugansk prohibited two protest actions planned by left political organizations.

On 29 December 2000 on the initiative of the first Komsomol secretary of Lugansk it was planned to burn a stuffed doll symbolizing the world capitalism in front of the former building of the oblast communist party committee. The court prohibited this action.

On the same day grown-up communists wanted to hold a protest meeting on the central square of Lugansk. That was also prohibited.

It looks like Lugansk courts imitate their colleagues from Severodonetsk in prohibiting political actions before and during the holidays.
