(en) Russia, avtonom: Against torture and repression: anarchists at the rally on June 10 [machine translation]

Date Thu, 14 Jun 2018 09:22:18 +0300


June 10 in Moscow on Sakharov Avenue was a rally "For a free Russia without repression and arbitrariness", in which, according to organizers, about 3 thousand people took part. Moscow anarchists went to the action with portraits of the figurants of the "Seti" case , as well as the Crimean anarchists Alexander Kolchenko and Yevgeny Karkashev and the Nizhny Novgorod anarchist Ilya Romanov . Guests from Belarus brought a banner in support of the Belarusian political prisoner Dmitry Polienko. ---- When not far from the entrance to the event, the members of the anarchist bloc were arrayed to go to the meeting place, a group of activists of the Left Bloc and the Russian Socialist Movement stood side by side. Chanting the slogans for the freedom of political prisoners, they all reached the rally, where for a while they stood as a common "box".

Among the speakers at the rally was an anarchist and former political prisoner Alexei Sutuga , as well as Svetlana Pchelintseva, the mother of one of the figurants of the Seti case.

Speech Alexei Sutugi: "I was asked to talk about the" Penza case. " Eight people from St. Petersburg and Penza read Kropotkin and played airsoft. They are in jail, they were tortured and accused of terrorism.

Why does the FSB act this way? In all epochs, the ability to own weapons distinguished free men. And now there are times like this, that even in plastic models the FSB sees a danger. The FSB is afraid that free people will be able to defend themselves.

Nobody forbade anarchism in Russia. Kropotkin's books are sold in stores. In honor of Kropotkin not far from here is called the metro station. In Russia there are anarchist sites, publications, cooperatives. Anarchists publish books, participate in social protests. They have many projects.

In Russia you can play airsoft. There are hundreds of airsoft clubs, patriotic or apolitical. But together, unsecured anarchism and legal airsoft, as it turned out, lead to prison.

People of different views came to this meeting. For example, nationalists and Stalinists, who are extremely unpleasant to us. But political struggle in Russia can not be done by the hands of cops. If they can fabricate a case against the Nazis, they can also be an anarchist. If an anarchist can be imprisoned, the liberal is under threat.

Breaking the horns of a police state is a common goal for all. Without this, no development of Russia is possible. "They do not give rights, they are taken!" Said Kropotkin. "
