(en) Russia, Anti-fascist actions in Petrozhavodsk in response to Kondologa pogroms

Date Tue, 19 Sep 2006 16:29:25 +0300

On the wake of racist pogroms in Kondologa of Karelia, Russia, fascists
attempted to raise same kind of movement in Karelian capital, Petrozhavodsk.
Fascist front organisation DPNI (Movement Against Illegal Migration) with
Zhirinovsky's pro-Kremlin puppet party LDPR called a meeting for 5th of
September with little success - number of active anti-fascists surpassed
number of fascists. Of up to 300 people at mayor's office in Petrozhavodsk,
only 30 were active nazis, up to 50 were active anti-fascists*, 30 were
journalists and 50 were cops. Nazis claim that 100 people signed their
resolution, which demanded expulsion of all immigrants from the city.

Weak shouts "Long live Russia" were answered with loud "Death to fascism of
all flavors, from bottom to the powers!" and other anti-fascist shouts.
Anti-fascist Initiative of Petrozhavodsk had also a black flag and banners
"Power gives birth to parasites" and "Oligarchy = new fascism".
Anti-fascists gave interviews, pointing out that main enemy of a common
human being is alliance of power, bourgeoisie and criminals. Whereas elites
are internationalists, accounts in same banks and villas in same islands, we
are being put up against each other. So we need an international as well -
peace between races, war between classes!

9th of September DPNI and LDPR attempted to have another, even less
succesful demonstration in Petrozhavodsk. It is obvious, that authorities
are attempting to use LDPR to provoke events similar to Kondologa but more
under their control around Russia. 5-10 nazis were escorted by 40 cops and
15 journalists. 4 anti-fascists came and unrolled banner "Death to fascism"
and a black flag. Soon nazis sent cops against anti-fascists who got
arrested, two were given a fine of 500 rubles (15 euros) in a court for "not
fulfilling police orders".
