Anti-border camp in Kundicze cancelled!!!
Anti border camp planed for mid of July had been cancelled. Reason for
this was lack of time for proper preparation, no money resources and
lack of help from other groups, that promised support before. Therefore
crew organizing camp decided that its better to cancel it, inctead of
putting all effort in organizing non-effective event.
ANTIFA 5 trial continues
Trial of 5 anti-fascists from Bialystok framed into assault on nazi
activist continues. 5th hearing in court didnt bring much changes,
except from fact that statements by this nazi idiot are becoming more
and more like from Monthy Python movies. Next hearing is on 14ht of
July, but obviously trial will not end yet.

Trial of Lapa- part two

Lapa, anti-fascist skinhead from Bialystok, sentenced to 1 year of
prison for GBH charges after participating in fight with nazis, made an
appeal. Finally judge decided to return his trial to the beginning. On
first hearing of new trial there were few nazis from blood&honour and
other group but Antifa was also present and finally nazis withdrew
before end of trial. Next hearing will be at the end of August, becasue
not all witnesses were present.

There were two serious skirmishes with nazis in last month. On the
beginning of June about 15 nazis attacked open air breakdance show in
centre of the city. After punching few people they were succesfully
repelled by combined effort of few antifa memebrs and hip hop fans. At
least 3 nazis were seriously injured, including their boss. 2 of them
got caputred and photographed, but then cops came and rescued them from
angry crowd. In first days of July few anarchists and anti-fascists
fell in trap made by 12-15 strong group of Mlodziez Wszechpolska
members (youth group of fascist/populist LPR party). After short but
intense fight where bricks, pepper sprays and chains were used, bot
groups run to separate directions. 3 antifas and unknown number of
fascists (at least 2) were injured. No people got arrested although
cops initially wanted to detain one of antifascists.

Against EU elections

Over 15 anarchist groups and initiatives from all over Poland released
officla call for boycott of EU elections, that was then sent to every
possible media, trade union etc. In many cities there were posters being
put on the streets, grafitti. Election billboards often got destroyed or
damaged by slogans or paintbombs.

Call for help!!!

Bialystok's ANTIFA is in contant need of support to cover our activity
costs (main costs are propaganda materials). If you can donate
anything they would be more than happy. Contact WARHEAD for details.
