Турэмныя універсітэты беларускіх анархістаў

Belarus, 03.12.2011 02:27

Адвакат Ігара Аліневіча падаў скаргу ў прэзыдыюм менскага гарадзкога суду на прысуд, паводле якога актывіст анархісцкага руху адбывае 8-гадовае турэмнае пакараньне. Працягваюць абскарджваць прысуды і іншыя фігуранты справы аб падпале расейскай амбасады, ізалятара на Акрэсьціна ды іншых будынкаў.

Мянчук Ігар Аліневіч атрымаў найбольшы тэрмін за ўдзел у нападзе на расейскую амбасаду — 8 гадоў калёніі прысудзіла яму судзьдзя Жана Хвайніцкая з Заводзкага суду Менску. Гэта было ў канцы траўня. У чэрвені ў Менгарсудзе разгледзелі скаргу на прысуд і пакінулі яго бязь зьмены. Нядаўна адвакат падаў скаргу ў прэзыдыюм Менгарсуду. Бацька асуджанага анархіста Ўладзімер Аліневіч кажа, што калі і гэтым разам ім адмовяць, яны ўсё роўна ня спыняць спробаў дамагчыся апраўданьня, бо віну сына лічаць недаказанай:

«У канцы месяца будзе разглядаць прэзыдыюм, як я ведаю. Калі адмовяць, то зьвернемся ў Вярхоўны суд і потым да старшыні».

Ігар Аліневіч быў накіраваны для адбыцьця пакараньня ў…

Петиция в защиту белорусских анархистов (обновляется)

Belarus, 03.12.2011 02:27

Начался сбор подписей под петицией в защиту белорусских анархистов.

Одним их первых петицию подписал журналист, кандидат филологических наук Александр Федута, бывший сокамерник анархиста Игоря Олиневича по СИЗО КГБ.

“Принцип “За вашу и нашу свободу!” в белорусской политической жизни никто не отменял. Я сидел месяц в одной камере с Игорем Олиневичем и поставил свою подпись с чистой совестью, потому что знаю: восемь лет парень получил на пустом месте. Просто потому что не сдался и не стал признавать свою вину", – написал Александр Федута в своем блоге.

_"Что касается Игоря и его коллег, то это дело с политической подоплекой. Власти нужно было показать успешную борьбу с “местным терроризмом”. В условиях отсутствия независимой судебной системы это сделать несложно. К тому же я больше месяца провел с Игорем в одной камере, и составил собственное представление о нем, как о человеке и гражданине. Объединенная гражданская партия считает,…

Belarus, 03.12.2011 02:27

Ігар Аліневіч ніводнага разу не званіў дамоў з Наваполацкай калёніі. Мікалая Дзядка пакаралі за парушэньне дысцыпліны пасьля адмовы падпісаць прашэньне аб памілаваньні. Аляксандар Францкевіч так і не атрымаў працы ў Івацэвіцкай калёніі “Ваўчыныя норы”. Яўген Васьковіч больш як 5 разоў сядзеў у карцэры.

У беларускіх турмах утрымліваюць 6 актывістаў анархісцкага руху, асуджаных за напады на афіцыйныя будынкі з палітычных матываў. Ігар Аліневіч, Аляксандар Францкевіч і Мікалай Дзядок сядзяць у турмах паводле прысуду, вынесенага Заводзкім судом Менску. У гэтым судзе разглядалася справа аб нападзе на амбасаду Расеі, акцыі пратэсту каля Міністэрства абароны і нападзе на ізалятар на Акрэсьціна.

Правозащитники признали Олиневича, Дедка и Францкевича политическими заключенными

Belarus, 03.12.2011 02:27

Правозащитный центр «Вясна» и Белорусский Хельсинкский Комитет признали Игоря Олиневича, Николая Дедка, Александра Францкевича политическими заключенными действующего в Беларуси режима. К такому выводу правозащитники пришли на основании специально проведенного анализа так называемого “Дела анархистов”.

Согласно заключению БХК, данное решение базируется на основании следующих выводов:

1. Предварительное следствие по уголовному делу сопровождалось серьезными процессуальными нарушениями, в том числе прав осужденных. Среди них: произвольные задержания, нарушение сроков и процедур задержания, которые установлены Уголовно-процессуальным кодексом Беларуси, нарушение права на защиту, нарушение принципа презумпции невиновности и др. Задержание И.Олиневича в г. Москве и его доставление в СИЗО КГБ в г.Минск осуществлялись с грубыми нарушениями установленных процедур, в том числе процедуры экстрадиции граждан с территории Российской Федерации в Беларусь.

Народный сход без народа

Неделю назад прошел первый, “установочный” Народный сход. Мы внимательно следили за подготовкой, проведением и последствиями данной акции. Ниже вы увидите наши размышления о том, почему Сход не удался, а также наше мнение о его потенциале в будущем.

Народный сход должен был стать первой ключевой акцией, организованной оппозиционными деятелями с декабря прошлого года. Действительно, весь прошлый год половина “лидеров оппозиции” сидела в тюрьме, а другая половина активно пыталась их оттуда достать, либо занималась переездом на ПМЖ за границу. Стихийные акции Революции через социальные сети были организованы не партийными функционерами, а виртуальными импровизаторами, и они как раз-таки были более народными, чем оппозиционными, по крайней мере, поначалу.

Идея проведения Народного схода возникла из-за невозможности проводить привычные митинги оппозиции в связи с обострением политической ситуации в стране. Была найдена лазейка в законе, которая позволяла не спрашивать…



И опять ЕВБ Восток, и опять милиция...

Belarus, 03.12.2011 02:27

Сегодня, 23.10.2011., ЕВБ Восток уже который раз навестила милиция. В этот раз сорвать раздачу бесплатной веганской пищи решили трое сотрудников ППС, один из них очень гордился, что он Сысой Денис Викторович. Действовали по уже привычной схеме: разгоняли кормящихся.В связи с этим, очередной раз было решено, дабы накормить людей, раздать пищу в сквере неподалёку. Но в этот раз сотрудников милиции это не устроило. Они решили прогнать людей и оттуда. Главным аргументам, было то, что это проспект, и мало ли будет ехать какой-нибудь очень важный чиновник и ему не понравиться, что он увидит. Затем, после звонка начальства одному из патрульных, он сказал, что нужно пройти в опорный пункт то ли для беседы, то ли для установления личности, сотрудники ППС на тот момент ещё не придумали. В опорном пункте с тремя участниками инициативы была проведена беседа и составлен протокол опроса. После чего все были отпущены.

Египтяне снова восстали, чтобы завершить революцию! - информация от анархиста из Египта

Сотни тысяч египтян борются против репрессивного аппарата военной хунты. Это восстание массы угнетенных, а не столкновения между исламистами и армией, как это показывают некоторые СМИ.
Anarkismo.net удалось поговорить с анархо-коммунистом из Египта, Ясиром Абдуллой, членом Египетского либертарно-социалистического движения, который попытался объяснить нам сложность борьбы и потенциал для завершения народной революции.
С тех пор, как режим Мубарака пал в феврале, Египтом управляет военная хунта, Верховный Совет военных сил, который оставил без изменений базовые структуры диктатуры. Протесты и забастовки были встречены исключительным насилием, общественные объединения столкнулись с драконовскими законами, которые фактически сделали любую борьбу невозможной; широко распространены пытки и избирательные репрессии против революционно настроенных активистов социальных движений.

Год назад спецслужбами в Москве был похищен Игорь Олиневич

Belarus, 03.12.2011 02:27

В редакцию сайта Объединенной гражданской партии пришло письмо от мамы политзаключенного Игоря Олиневича, с рассказом о том, как это было. «28 ноября – ровно год, как его похитили, – пишет Валентина Олиневич, – Годовщина совсем не радостная, но хотелось бы дать хоть какую-нибудь информацию о нем».

Жила-была одна семья. Она счастливая была…, но не знала об этом. Беда пришла вместе с очередными выборами. Когда случилось так называемое нападение на российское посольство в Минске, я сказала сыну: «Игорь, каждому понятно, что это – начало предвыборной гонки. Россия будет разбираться с Беларусью, силовые структуры друг с другом, все вместе – с оппозицией. А виновными назначат самую незащищенную часть населения – молодежь». На что он мне ответил, чтобы я не беспокоилась, потому что ни в каких преступлениях он не замешан. Но не тут-то было. В начале сентября начались аресты социально активной молодежи. Многие его друзья были арестованы по подозрению в нападении на российское…

The Occupocalypse at Occupy Oakland

Portland, 02.12.2011 15:25

A first person account of the Nov 14th raid on Occupy Oakland on November 14...

We expected a raid that night, most likely just before dawn. So after concluding our General Assembly of the evening, the Events Committee announced an emergency dance party, calling it "The Occupocalypse."

What Michele Bachmann could learn in a Fishbone moshpit

Portland, 02.12.2011 15:25

When Questlove of The Roots chose to introduce Michele Bachmann's appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with a few chords from punk band Fishbone's "Lyin' Ass Bitch," he was going for an easy joke. But true Fishbone fans, while elated that the fading, three-decade-old band was experiencing a pop cultural revival (and new dowloads) were also aware that "Lyin' Ass Bitch" was one of the less political songs of an extremely political band.

Born in the late seventies when its members were still in high school in the San Fernando Valley, Fishbone always crossed boundaries. They were a black punk band that incorporated rock, funk, reggae, and ska. Many have noted the irony that an African American band that influenced white musicians like Gwen Stefani, Flea, and even Kurt Cobain is now virtually unknown, while its proteges have surpassed it. (This is the topic of a new documentary on the band called Everyday Sunshine that I plan on seeing.) Fishbone was alt rock before the term existed. Questlove and his bandmates would be among the first to acknowledge the debt they owe to Fishbone, with whom they have toured.

Videos from the 1999 N30 Battle in Seattle

Portland, 02.12.2011 15:25

November 30th is the 12th anniversary of the week long World Trade Organization (WTO) protests in Seattle. Attended by tens of thousands of people from all over the world, this event began the process of putting a face on the 1% seeking to control the trade, the economies, the food, the energy sources of the planet. Not from the streets of Seattle, but a similar protest here in Portland.

Here's a couple videos I edited of my experiences in the streets of Seattle, taken from a six part series produced through Portland Public Access stations soon after the event. Watching the videos now, I could easily mistake the action for current nationwide Occupation events. Though perhaps some of the names have changed, it is the same resistance, with the same desire for a true Democracy, being met with the same brutal response by corporate power, law enforcement and governments.

And nothing has changed in the demands of the people of this planet: PEOPLE BEFORE PROFITS.

Each is about 7 minutes in length......

Paxton Gate PDX VANDALIZED

Portland, 02.12.2011 15:25

stop animal cruelty, fight speciesism, and combat gentrification On the night of Wednesday November 30.2011 anarchists vandalized Paxton Gate Portland, a wealthy boutique inhumanely supplying non-human animals and their parts. Windows were splashed with buckets of paint and on the side walk in front of the store was written "Fuck Paxton Gate". This was in solidarity with non-human struggles everywhere, and against the fight of inherent racism--gentrification.

We're not free until we all [including non-humans] are free.

American activist that received asylum in Sweden shares vital truths

Portland, 02.12.2011 15:25

We've all seen the recent images of the police brutality against Occupy, but this conduct hasn't occurred overnight. For years, US police abuse has been spiralling upwards, this article sharing a uniquely insightful vision of what that's meant, how it's occurred, and an amazing effort to awake America.

Excerpt: When we see these brutally nightmarish visions of police violence against innocent protesters, we're shocked because we haven't been aware that our police have behaved this way for many years now. Of course, that's also why we see -- despite the video evidence -- some people blaming the Occupy supporters for their own brutalization, refusing to believe that our police could do such harm without good reason. Even worse though, our 'authorities' are well aware of this tendency, and play upon it, i.e., the claims that the UC Davis police felt 'threatened' in an attempt to legitimize the brutal pepper spraying videotaped there.

Attempts to somehow 'demonize the victim' are an old story, and it's far easier to blame most victims than face the far harsher reality of what our society has become, how empty some of the assumptions about our police, about our own safety, are.

Oregon - Anarchists sabotage rail line

Portland, 02.12.2011 15:25

On the night of November 28th, 2011, we sabotaged a rail line in Southern Oregon as part of a coordinated effort to disrupt the flow of commerce on the West Coast. We got tired of watching trains pass through our towns loaded with lumber, ore, cheap commodities, and other resources pillaged from the earth without consequence. We didn't do this out of a desire to create a more green, sustainable or humane civilization--we want nothing less than to see the total failure of this sick and rotten society. This action was not only easy to carry out, but positively satisfying. We used 4AWG copper wire with the ends stripped of insulation and wrapped around the two sides of the track with the rest of it buried in the middle, which falsely indicated to a sensor that there was a train stopped on the railway.

We did this in solidarity with currently imprisoned members of the Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell/Indonesian FAI, to whom we send our most passionate revolutionary greetings. We would also like to send our love to ALF prisoner of war, Walter Bond.

Towards an end to this nightmare world.

&quot;A New Aggressive Movement&quot;: The Founding and Defense of the Santa Cruz Social Center

Portland, 02.12.2011 15:25

There were no broken windows. So that particular liberal defense is off the table. Those who have decided to side with the state instead of this new and radical social movement will find that it is now their illusions that have been shattered. The conditions of social life in Santa Cruz involve a visible homeless population, and they have not been absent at Occupy Santa Cruz... It's easy for the media to dismiss occupations as a collection of bums, but the truth is that the homeless need a place to sleep; and now, with chilly nights and fierce winds, the activists at the occupation, like the homeless every year, need more than tents.

This morning a comrade stood on the roof of the new occupation looking out for police, who he had seen hovering around the encampment at City Hall. He doubted that they would make a scene in daylight. "Downtown business is too important." But every indication is that they will return at night, in greater number and with more instruments of violence. They will return to literally do the bidding of Wells Fargo, draining public funds to pay for repression, adding to the $13 million spent in other cities.

Occupy a building near you.

SchNEWS: One Strike and You're Out?

United Kingdom, 02.12.2011 10:06

Wednesday's N30 strikes saw 2 million public sector workers striking and hundreds of thousands marching in Britain's streets all over the country, marking the biggest strike in a generation.

Demonstrations and pickets were held in nearly every major town across the UK, with the largest gatherings seeing 30,000 in London, 20,000 in Manchester, 15,000 in Birmingham and 10,000 in Edinburgh and Glasgow. More than 6 out of 10 schools were closed for the day and some activists from Occupy London stormed the offices of the UK's highest paid CEO, Mick Davis, head of Xstrata mining corporation. Reports are of 75 arrests in total, most of them around the occupation of the Xstrata office and in Hackney, after some demonstrators were kettled for four hours, then taken into custody on 'suspicion of breach of the peace'.

Oppose Internet Censorship; Help defeat SOPA &amp; PIPA

Portland, 01.12.2011 18:30

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) would ruin so much of what's best about the Internet: They will give the government and corporations new powers to block Americans' access to sites that are accused of copyright infringement, force sites like YouTube to go to new lengths to police users' contributions, and put people in prison for streaming certain content online.

There's a good chance this legislation will pass - but Senator Ron Wyden is a steadfast opponent, and he says he'll try to block it by filibustering if it comes up for a vote.

Sometimes filibusters last hours - or days - leaving Senators reading out of the dictionary or cookbooks to pass the time. But we've got a better idea:



Cool Volunteer Opportunity Sat Dec 3rd- helping folks facing foreclosure

Portland, 01.12.2011 16:43

this [is] from Oregon Opportunity Network, a group that works to establish and maintain decent affordable housing. Sounds fun, easy, and meaningful.

"Hello Portland-area Oregon ON community, NeighborWorks America is looking for about 80 volunteers to help staff an important family foreclosure-prevention event happening in Portland on Saturday, December 3. They are a great, effective organization so we are helping them get the word out. If you're feeling thankful for a warm roof over your head this rainy week, please consider grabbing your senior/student/community/church/business group and joining them (individual volunteers are welcome too of course)! They are holding this event in conjunction with the U.S. Treasury, HUD, Fannie Mae, and major lenders. Homeowners in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure can meet with their servicer and/or a housing counselor in an attempt to resolve their issues. They hope to see at least 500 families."

On November 30th, more than a hundred activists in Santa Cruz demonstrated in front of a Chase bank, before marching to and occupying a vacant bank building on River and Water Streets. A communique handed out shortly after the building was entered states, "This building is being re-purposed in solidarity with Occupy Santa Cruz. Formerly a Coast Commercial Bank, the building was bought by Wells Fargo, closed, and has been vacant for the past three years. The company leasing the building manages foreclosures for Wells Fargo."

Occupy LA Evicted from Park - Occupiers Regroup at La Placita Church

LA, 30.11.2011 17:28

LOS ANGELES, November 30, 2011 - The Occupy LA encampment at City Hall was raided late last night and destroyed last night by the LAPD. Police mobilized a force of an estimated 800 officers and formed a tight ring around the surrounding area and then an inner ring around the park. When the raid came hundreds of riot police poured out of the South door of City Hall and flooded the camp. Police quickly surrounding those locked in arms in the South Plaza and began making arrests.

Arrests continued late into the night. The exact count is unclear but estimates put it near 200 people. Those not arrested during the raid staged protests on First Street just East of the park. About 1,000 supporters were able to get to the park before police line went up. Those who did not arrive before 9:00 pm were prevented by police lines from getting to the park. Other late arrivers marched around the police perimeter looking for a way in. For a while some people found ways in through some open buildings, but police caught on and stopped it.

Occupiers have regrouped at the La Placita Church and some tents have been seet up there. A general assembly is still planned for tonight at 7:30 pm on the West steps of City Hall.

Police State to be Created by Congress This Week

Portland, 29.11.2011 22:15

In response to the Occupy Movement and its perceived threat to the status quo, Congress will vote next week on Senate Bill 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, to explicitly create a police state. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) explained that the bill will "basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield" and people can be imprisoned without charge or trial "American citizen or not." Another supporter, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), also declared that the bill is needed because "America is part of the battlefield." Write your Senator NOW!

Now is the time to stop this bad idea. Please urge your senators to vote YES on the Udall Amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act which would remove the harmful provisions from the bill and in their place, mandate a process for Congress to use an orderly process to consider whether any detention legislation is needed.
