(en) Russia, Court against anti-fascists of St. Petersburg

Date Sat, 22 Dec 2007 13:18:40 +0200

18th of September 2007 court proceedings started against six anti-fascists,
accused of dispersing picket of fascist front-group "Movement Against Illegal
Migration" (DPNI) 17th of September 2006 in St. Petersburg. Court has proceeded
slowly during the autumn, and up till now prosecutor has not even announced what
sentence he is demanding. ---- Following anti-Caucasian pogroms in small
Karelian city of Kondopoga, which began when Caucasian mafia murdered local
youth, nationalist organisations tried to flare hatred all around the country.
In St. Petersburg, local anti-fascists found this unacceptable and promptly
attacked and outran small picket of DPNI 17th of September 2006. Number of
picketers were hospitalized, one of them accidentally wounded by knife of
another picketer.

The same day, police arrested a number of people, six of whom are currently
facing charges of "hooliganism conducted with a group of people" (statue 213
part 2 of Russian criminal codex, sentence from 100 hours of public service
to 5 years of prison), one of them is facing an additional charge of
"drawing juveniles in to anti-social activity" (statue 151 of Russian
criminal codex, sentence from 1 year of public works to 4 years in prison).

Unfortunately, one of the arrested is giving testimony against the rest, who
are denying any participation to action.

Currently defendants do not need any financial support. However any acts of
solidarity, for example against your local Nazis, would be very welcome of
course! You may contact defendats through St. Petersburg RASH paper "Liniya
Fronta" (frontline), their contact address is frontline AT riseup DOT net.
