A march to protest against the high prices of goods was held in Kaunas on Saturday as a follow up to the three-day boycott of supermarkets organised earlier in the week.

One of the march’s organisers, Rolandas, said that it is also the first step to protest culture development in Lithuania.

“We do not have any protest culture in Lithuania and it is the biggest problem,” said Rolandas to portal Kas vyksta Kaune.

The march, which was attended by more than 100 people – a follow-up to the three-day boycott of supermarkets, was directed not only at business but also at political parties.

“Our march is not only against businesses, but also against the state itself, policies towards students, working people,” said Rolandas.

“We do not want that this march, this event to become a vehicle for one party or another,” said the organizer of the march.

Rolandas said that the public expressing its opinion was no longer an acceptable phenomenon in Lithuania.

“Public opinion is getting more and more into some kind of search for enemies, witch hunting… it is absurd,” said Rolandas.
