Vlad Lenko is an anti-fascist from Ivatsevichy. On December 27, 2014 he was arrested for a fight with neo-nazis, which occurred on the 23rd of December of the same year. He is charged under Art. 339.2 (hooliganism of the group of people) and 147.2 (causing grievous bodily harm). The court sentenced Vlad to a six-year period of imprisonment in a maximum security colony. It is necessary to collect a large sum to appeal the verdict, as well as to pay the victim a compensation ordered by a court in the amount of 1000 euro. There is the hope to reduce the period by half. Please, everyone, do not stay on the sidelines, help our mate in a difficult moment, only together we can help him. Also Vlad needs moral support, and later we’ll publish a postal address of the correctional institution.
On 23 August Mikalai Dziadok will become 27. Once again he will have to celebrate his birthday in prison. Relatives and friends of the anarchist were hoping to have him outside of the prison that day, because he was supposed to be released march this year. However out of fear for political protests and loosing power state have decided to keep Dziadok one more year in Prison.

We call everyone to congratulate our friend on that day with actions of solidarity and letters.
In summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners. Given there are already established dates for Political Prisoners Rights Day or Prison Justice Day, we found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades as well. Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ‘political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change. At the same time, even within our individual communities, we know so little about the repression that exists in other countries, to say nothing of the names and cases involving many of our incarcerated comrades.

Antifascists fight against those who—in the government or in the streets—dream of imposing their fascist and other Far Right nationalist nightmares on the rest of us. Throughout the world, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, and racist bigotries are on the rise. Antifas are on the frontline in confronting these reactionary politics, and we will not forget our comrades imprisoned in the course of this struggle.
