(en) FA Lyon March 18 - act in solidarity with Russian anarchists! (fr) [machine translation]
Sat, 10 Mar 2018 10:24:07 +0200
During the last months, Russian secret services have arrested several anarchists and
antifascists in Penza and Saint-Petersburg cities. They were accused of conspiring to
organize a "terrorist organization". The arrested were tortured with electric cables and
shockers for many hours, brutally beaten without care whether hard damage is made and
whether visible traces of beating are left. The officers humiliated our arrested comrades.
They tried to force them to testify against themselves and against each other. These true
Gestapo actions of Russian FSB secret service can evoke only vigorous protest from every
honest person. ---- The international solidarity action week on February 7-12 exposed wide
reaction of the anarchist movement worldwide to these repressions and made considerable
media effect in Russia. But it seems to be not enough to overcome the situation. Very
soon, it became known that some of arrested anarchists were tortured and intimidated
again. The FSB officers demanded that they stop participating in the campaign of
resistance against tortures and repressions. Moreover, after solidarity actions took place
in Russia, the police launched repressions against those who took these actions. Our
comrades were prosecuted in Moscow and Chelyabinsk. Anarchists in Chelyabinsk were again
tortured with electricity by the police, while being accused of "hooliganism" (!).
Simultaneously with the arrests in Saint-Petersburg, FSB raids and arrests against
anarchists were made in the Crimea.
It is necessary to continue and strengthen the campaign of solidarity to force Russian
authorities to end tortures and political repressions. The best day for new actions is
March 18: the day of presidential elections in Russia. In this day, the ruling regime is
the most vulnerable and the eyes of the world will be turned to the situation in our country.
We urgently and desperately call to all anarchist, leftist, antifascist and democratic
groups and communities all over the world to organize actions of protest and resistance of
any kind against tortures and repressions in Russia: by the embassies, consulates and
other official offices of Russian Federation in your countries.
Our slogans are
FSB is the main terrorist!
Your electricity won't kill our ideas!
Freedom for Russian anarchists and antifascists!
