Rally in Minsk 08.12.2014

At least 4 people were arrested from 3 to 15 days in Minsk after anarchist rally that was held this Monday. There were no police during the Rally that lasted for 5 minutes. However later on people were detained by police from their working places. They were prosecuted next day for disobedience and violation of rules of public gatherings.

Some activists started gathering solidarity money for working comrades as they won’t get at least half of their salary after 15 days in Prison. If you wanna donate to those people you can use our paypal account belarus_abc@riseup.net, but please state the cause of transaction.

Arrests, detentions and interrogations – World Hockey Championship 2014 in Minsk


Logo_en

Several hours left before the official start of the World Hockey Championship 2014 in Belarus. Event that was planned in 2009 during another political thaw between the West and Lukashenko was constantly criticized by human rights and political organizations for support of Lukashenko’s political regime. Many groups called national hockey teams to boycott the championship, however International Federation of Ice Hockey decided once again that sport is standing apart from politics and retained the right for hosting championship in Minsk. But it is impossible to keep sport business away from politics. For Lukashenko this championship is a unique way to legitimize Belarusian political system on behalf of tournament participants. On the one hand, we see harsh critics of the regime from the West, on the other hand, Minsk today is full of national flags of teams participating in the show. In this atmosphere the political tensions seem to be gone and everyone is going to enjoy the truce.

At the time when players of national teams will be ice skating and monkeying around in ice palaces build for this one-time event, and tourists, the ones that will dare to come to Belarus, will be spending their money to recover Belarusian economy, Belarusian police and KGB will increase repressions of any Lukashenko’s political opponents. Nowadays dozens of activists ended up in jail based on false minor cases.

Belarusian anarchist from Gomel Dzmitry Rezanovich is waiting for deportation from Russia


gosudarstvennaya-granitsa-rossii-i-ukrainy-mestnyi-0000566028-previewAnarchist from Gomel - Dzmitry Rezanovich – was detained on March 13-14 by Russian security forces when he tried to cross Russian-Ukrainian border. He is now at one of the Kursk pre-trial facilities, relatives are not allowed to visit him. It’s not yet clear what was the reason for detention. He had the passport of his brother, but it looks like the special services were not interested in this misdemeanor, they allegedly suspect him of a conspiracy to launch an attack on Kursk nuclear power plant as well as participation in Maidan protests.

We think this story is connected with the Russian hysteria about possible war with the Ukraine and expected diversive acts from Ukrainian side.

Russia: Antifascist Alen Volikov detained in Moscow in a probe into a 2011 brawl


At about 10.30 p.m. on November 6, antifascist Alen Volikov, 23, and his girlfriend were walking out of a shop in Moscow when police operatives, who drove up in three cars, ran over to them. According to the woman, they presented criminal police IDs and explained the detention by the fact that Volikov is on a federal wanted list.

Most likely this explanation is not true, as the lawyers for the other antifascists detained as part of the same criminal probe, Alexei Olesinov and Alexei Sutuga, did not find any information about people who are on wanted lists. It is likely that the federal wanted notice may be backdated, which was the case with Olesinov’s detention in February.

It seems likely that Alen Volikov may become the third suspect in the probe into a brawl at Moscow’s Vozdukh Club. To recap, during a punk gig in mid-December 2011 some of the gig-goers had a quarrel but they quickly made up. However, the venue’s security guards, armed with non-lethal weapons, became involved, the gig was stopped, and the club was emptied. At the door, a brawl, which involved shooting from non-lethal weapons, started between gig-goers and security guards who said they were nationalists. Two people were injured.  (more…)

Russian writer and antifascist Pjotr Silajev is still arrested in Madrid


Silajev had been granted a political asylum in Finland early this year. The Finnish embassy in Madrid has said that Silajev can be kept arrested for 40 days! The Spanish police arrested Silajev in Granada because of request from Interpol on the 21st of august. Contrary to the expectations, he was not released in a trial in Madrid on the 22nd of august, even though the Finnish embassy had provided all the papers concerning his asylum and right to stay in the country. The court wouldnt comment the case. The Spanish police said that he only had a Russian passport when he was arrested. It is not clear how the Finnish state will react to the arrest.

The Moscow Times interviewed Tanya Lokshina from The Human Rights Watch, who said that the Spanish state does not have to take into concideration the asylum from Finland and are free to send him back to Russia. This does not seem possible. The Finnish YLE news has interviewed the head of the immigration office Esko Repo who said that all the European Union countries are committed to not sending people to countries where they might face prosecution.

The lawyer of Silajev said the situation looks bad.
