On May 3, 1982, an artistic little masonry shrine not far from Šateikiai was demolished.

Kapčiamiestis (Rayon of Lazdijai)

On June 24, 1982, the faithful of Kapčiamiestis erected a wooden cross on the Kapčiamiestis - Kauknorės Road. The following day, Vice Chairman Vanagas of the Lazdijai Rayon Executive Com­mittee came to Kapčiamiestis and ordered Forest Ranger A. Igna­tavičius to demolish it, since the cross stood in his sector.

This was done July 2, between 1:00 and 3:00 PM. People say that the cross was cut down by Ignatavičius, his son Romas, and a son-in-law.

A couple of days later, two crosses sprang up on the spot.

On June 30, an artistic little shrine to Saint Anthony dedicated to those who had given their life for the nation's freedom, was erected at the edge of the forest along the Kapčiamiestis-Gardinas High­way.

In a couple of hours, the little shrine was vandalized.

On July 14, in Kapčiamiestis, an Executive Party meeting took place with a representative of the rayon Party participating. During the meeting, activists and auxiliaries were urged to be on guard against any crosses being erected in the district.

Nevertheless, the faithful of Kapčiamiestis, especially the youth and children resolved to protect every cross and to restore im­mediately those which are demolished.
