(en) Czech, afed: Anarchists June 12 in Russia [machine translation]

Date 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.
