Officially illegal to clap your hands in Belarus

As of yesterday, 5 October, it became officially against the law to clap in public in Belarus or to congregate in groups anywhere in public.

In parliament one representative went so far as to suggest that protestors be responsible for erecting fences around themselves, thereby assuring that no innocent bystanders be mistakenly arrested; and to make it easier for police and KGB to round up those “law breaking” clappers.
