20 year old anarchist from Rostov-na-Donu, Aleksander Tomenko has been in
remand prison 61\1 GUIN of Rostov region since late March, sued by a nazi
who claims that Aleksander assaulted him. Miller is from a poor family, and
funds must be raised both for costs of lawyer (500 $) and to provide him food and
cigarettes in prison (at least 20$ monthly), since Russian authorities do not provide
food for prisoners. Unfortunately, there is no way to write to Miller in remand prison,
but we hope to get him out to wait trial by legal means. Also, currently relatives of
Miller who are bearing main burden of the defence, are not convinced about benefits of
a public, political defence campaign - we hope that they reconsider this position, but
until then we will mostly work with raising funds for Miller.

Who is Miller?

Born to a poor family, Miller had to feed himself after 9th grade. He has
worked in countless unskilled works since then - as a warehouseman, welder,
construction hand, paver and many others.
In anarchist movement since 2002, he first came to contact with anarchists
in a pit town of Shahty, where he was also arrested after an anarchist
action. Miller has been involved in Rostov in groups
such as Autonomous Action, Rainbow Keepers, Federation of Anarcho-Communists
and Federation of Revolutionary Anarchists. Many remember him from 2003 Azov
ecological protest camp against methanol export terminal, constructed with
involvement of an Italian
multinational Triboldi. Up to 9000 people joined to protest actions in this
city of 90 000, 45 kilometers south from Rostov, and last two years
construction has been halted although final victory is anything but sure.
Miller lived in the protest camp for a month, and actually it was him who
originally found the site where camp was to be located.

This is not the first quarrel of Miller with the far-right - in the past, he
has had his leg and nose broken and ear ragged during different encounters
with fascists.
