Belarus School Protests Ban On Polish Teachers

September 25, 2006 -- The students and staff of a Belarusian middle
school walked out of classes today to protest a government ban on the
use of exchange teachers from Poland.

Reports say police are monitoring the peaceful demonstration in
Volokovysk, in the western province of Hrodna, but not interfering.

The protest comes after local officials enforced a ban against Polish
teachers. Minsk says Warsaw is seeking to undermine its rule through
contacts with Belarus' large Polish minority.
