(en) Czech, afed: Anarchists June 12 in Russia [machine translation]
Mon, 19 Jun 2017 16:47:28 +0300
Throughout Russia took place on Monday, June 12 protest against corruption, organized by
supporters of opposition leader Alexei Navalného. Also participated in them anarchists.
---- Petersburg ---- On Monday, June 12, the opposition once again tried to organize a
mass protest. In St. Petersburg, people should meet at Campus Martius in downtown, but at
this point the demonstration was not allowed. According to various estimates, I came here
several thousand people waited on by thousands of policemen. "The revolution is not like,"
said St. Petersburg anarchist T. "Above the square flying big yellow inflatable duck
(which symbolizes a protest against house for ducks in the summer residence of Prime
Minister Dmitry Medvedev), the cops threw themselves at any moment between people and
someone pulled out from the crowd, people and they ran again gathered. They shouted "Putin
is a thief," Viktor Tsoi sang songs. One man climbed a lamp and talked about gay rights in
Russia ... There were rightists and leftists, nacbolové, anarchists, liberals and all
people of all ages. "
Man with LGBT flag became the hero of the day. He talked about the fact that homophobia is
also a way of dividing people talked about the persecution of gays in Chechnya. The people
supported his speech, and when the Nazis took the rainbow flag, he tried to return it
back. But it was not - the Nazis along with the cops surrounded the activist.
They were arrested over six hundred people.
In comparison with the March protests were perhaps those unexpected for the government
less and less meat. One of the anarchists is evaluated as follows: "The government should
lead the opposition missed the hype. Now on the youtube collect multimillion audience, but
the effect is short-term media ... Navalnyj et al. simply they emerged as the only ones in
this genre try to succeed, but what they will do next, how they will raise the stakes?
"From this point of view can be evaluated protests June 12, 2017 as a defeat, and whether
it was tactical or strategic, we will see in the near future .
Text of the leaflet, which handed out at the demonstration Petrograd anarchists:
For real change!
We did not come out into the streets because we have become pawns in someone else's game
or small coins in the machinations of politicians. We are trying to impose our fate
powerless and dependent masses and the democratic game and ice in the sandbox.
Change the system, not the person on the throne. Instead of the president, MPs and
officials need direct participation of everyone to social management. Instead, oligarchs
and capitalists need cooperation and social control.
We must and we can find life forms, where bureaucracy and corruption will not be possible.
To do this, you need to change the economic and political system.
We do not live in the illusion of immediate uprooting existing order. But we also do not
believe in half measures, which offer a political organization. Change the situation today
means finding like-minded people, to organize with neighbors, colleagues at work, go
straight to the government.
We do not need the President, Members and officials who fail to meet our direct tasks that
can not be withdrawn at any time. Our solution is autonomy. Your candidate in the
elections is you!
Work on the square in Irkutsk on June 12 were about one and a half thousand people. In
thirty above zero, so the majority of people did not stand in the bleachers, but hid in
the shade. Although these protests often called meetings Navalného followers, most of the
speakers talked about Navalny, and even the detection of corruption, but the social
problems - low wages, housing problems, barbarous deforestation etc.
Anarchists did not come to the meeting to support the central adept to the Russian throne,
but to call on the people to fight for their own interests and not waiting for "better
Tsar". Anarchists poster proclaimed: "I give birth to corruption. Fight for freedom, not
the masters! "
Among the speakers was a member of the Movement irkutských anarchists Dmitrij Litvin, who
is being prosecuted for insulting feelings of believers. He warned those present to not
open the door early in the morning, when the question of who is there, heard that they
were neighbors from the bottom, you have turned on the heater. He is in such a situation
and opened up his flat raided by the police.
