In the surreal world of Belarus, standing in line outside a shop could be considered subversive.
The New York Times reported the proposed law thus: In Belarus, Just Being Can Prompt an Arrest. The paper explained:
[The draft law] prohibits the "joint mass presence of citizens in a public place that has been chosen beforehand, including an outdoor space, and at a scheduled time for the purpose of a form of action or inaction that has been planned beforehand and is a form of public expression of the public or political sentiments or protest."
Anyone proven to be taking part in such a gathering would be subject to up to 15 days of administrative arrest, the draft says.
