Epicenter Infoshop - working as a distro (including mailorder) in last
couple of years, the infoshop is almost sure to get a new location in a
club in the center of the city. At least our library (anarchist / punk /
environmental etc. stuff in different languages) should be situated there,
and maybe some point of free public access to the internet. contact:
epicenter-infoshop@nm.ru / http://www.infoshop.spb.ru (not updated for
some time)

Food Not Bombs - people (mostly) from diy-punk-hardcore community
serving free veg(etari)an food to the homeless and poor people. The
distribution of food has been taking place weekly since January 2005.
Recently a new FNB group appeared, serving food in a new location.

Free Voice radio - a local radio station where one anarchist is working.
At the moment the radio is broadcasting recorded programs only (2 hours a
day on medium waves (AM)) and some money is needed to have an
opportunity for live broadcasting (donations are welcome)
contact: http://www.freevoice.ru (not sure if they'll answer quickly, try
contacting through PLA as well).

Front Aids - local branch of national network fighting for the rights of
HIV-positive people. Really committed to struggle against neoliberal
policies, drug patents etc.
contact: riotmasha@yadex.ru, frontaids@mail.ru / http://www.frontaids.ru
(seems to be down at the moment)

Petersburg League Of Anarchists (PLA) - local anarchists active on
different issues for many years. Active in local coalitions of different
political forces such as Antiwar Committee (weekly pickets against the war
in Chechnya / North Caucasus) and Antifascist Association (trying to
combat fascism and racism). They publish their own newspaper once in 2-4
months (which is quite often for Rusian @-movement).
contact: newworld@mail.admiral.ru / http://novsvet.narod.ru

Punk-Revival - local antifascist and anarchist punks and skinheads. Active
in combatting neonazis who are realy dangerous in Russia. Also connected
to the Antiwar Committee (see above) and squatter scene - 4 anarcho-punk
squats existed in Petersburg in last 3 years (Klizma being the most famous
of them).
contact: gkazus@mail.ru / http://www.pv.mahost.org

Rainbow Keepers - radical environmental network, organising yearly protest
camps in different parts of Russia (and sometimes in ex-USSR). Not active
locally (in Petersburg) but some people will surely
partcipate in the summit protests.

is based in Petersburg.
