an action in the regional parliament of the Perm region, protesting
against the poisoning of local residents by exhaust fumes from the illegal
incineration of solid-propellant rockets (or missiles) within city limits
with full knowledge of the local authorities.
At 10am 6 AER militants wearing gas masks entered the meeting hall of
the Legislative Assembly of the Perm province (local parliament), blasting

anarchists' cheif grievance, prompting them towards direct action, was the
Legislative Assembly's sixth rescheduling and delay of hearings on the
problem of solid-propellant rocket (or missile) disposal in Perm. This time
the meeting was pushed back till June, as the rockets in the city of Perm

the air.

After the distribution of the anti-missile pamphlets that called on
representatives to cease postponing the meeting on this socially relevant
subject, the anarchists shouted into the megaphone 3 times: "Burn the
missiles in your own offices!" and left the Legislative Assembly's meeting
hall. None of the participants were detained.

The action was filmed by reporters from several local television channels.
The participants gave an interview to a national radio station "Radio

No passaran! Resist, or perish! No to missiles!
