(en) [Belarus] Russian anarchist Piotr Riabov arrested goes on hunger strike By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 16 Oct 2017 06:57:46 +0300

Piotr Riabov, one of the most notorious historians of anarchism in Russia, a professor in the Department of Philosophy at Moscow University of Pedagogy, was arrested today because of a lecture on the history of the anarchist movement . He was sentenced to six days in prison and went on hunger strike. ---- The arrest took place last October 9 in the town of Baranovichi, Belarus, where Riabov traveled to lecture. Police invaded the lecture and arrested the historian and more than twenty people who came to the event. All were taken to the police station and questioned. Police seized the books and other printed material that Riabov would use during the lecture. On that day, all were released after the interrogations. ---- However, on October 10, Riabov was detained again on the city's railway when he was returning to Moscow. He was tried on October 11 and sentenced to six days in prison. The comrade was accused of vandalism and the dissemination of extremist materials. The magazine "Freedom or Death" No. 6 of 2007 was considered extremist. In protest, he entered today, October 11, on a hunger strike.

Piotr Riabov, along with Vadim Damier, is the leading contemporary historian of anarchism in Russia.

He needs international solidarity and urgent support.
