(en) Russia, avtonom: Anarchoblock at the rally "Let go" [machine translation]

Date Fri, 4 Oct 2019 09:17:41 +0300

On September 29, in Moscow on Academician Sakharov Avenue, a general opposition rally for the freedom of political prisoners was held, which was attended by more than 20 thousand people. The participants and participants in the rally demanded that criminal cases be stopped both against the remaining defendants in the "Moscow case" and against all people persecuted in Russia for political reasons. ---- Moscow anarchists and anarchists joined the event with the banner "Freedom for Political Prisoners-Anarchists", on which were written the names of the detainees in the Seti's torture case, Ilya Romanov, Kirill Kuzminkin, Azat Miftakhov, as well as under Ekaterina Muranova's recognizance not to leave. ---- During the rally, the last, 38th issue of Avtonom magazine was sold .

Among the speakers at the rally were former defendants in the "Moscow affair" released from public pressure, including libertarian socialist Vladislav Barabanov.

The text of the leaflet handed out by the participants and participants of the anarchoblock:

We, anarchists and libertarian socialists, join the demand to stop criminal and administrative cases against protesters and release political prisoners!

We believe that the very existence of such a concept as a "political prisoner" most clearly reflects the imperfection and injustice of the system in which our society is now wrapped: in it even the most progressive authorities strive to maintain their position, eventually coming to conservatism and repression. Being supporters of not representative, but direct democracy, we believe that important decisions regarding social organization should be made directly by citizens at the grassroots level (at general off-line or online meetings), where everyone has an equal right to vote. To solve more global issues, historical practice has developed a form of advice in which representatives of grassroots collectives participate, limited by an imperative mandate,

Already, there are many grassroots initiatives and protest movements (not necessarily declaring anarchism) that make important decisions at general meetings. With enough effort, this principle can be extended to all spheres of public life, making centralized authoritarian structures unnecessary, including the state, which outrages us with police and power arbitrariness towards participants in mass protests.
