Overview of repressions against anarchists and antifashists in Belarus in 2015

Untitled-2--672x372

We begin the overview of repressions with a recently ended epic which lasted since 2010 – the cases of anarchists.

On 22 August anarchists Ihar Alinevich, Mikalai Dziadok and Artsiom Prakapenka were released from jail. Among the absolved there were also Jauhen Vaskovich* and two other prisoners who do not have even an indirect relationship to anarchism.
But we remember that during all the time of their imprisonment, they and their families were constantly under pressure.
On 26 February Mikalai Dziadok was sentenced to one year of imprisonment under an absurd article 411 of the Criminal Code “willful disobedience to the orders of the prison administration” (//abc-belarus.org/?p=5809&lang=en). Mikalai expressed his wish to be the last convict under this article. It allows prison authorities to keep a person there forever.

Crimethink – Ex Workers’ Collective

#41: Anarchism in Belarus, Czech Republic, Korea,
and Beyond

Summary

In this episode, the Ex-Worker explores connections between anarchism, repression and resistance across the world in countries that rarely appear in the radical limelight. We share an interview with an Anarchist Black Cross chapter in Belarus, discussing the president’s recent release of anarchist political prisoners; interview a Czech anarchist about “Operation Fenix” and recent entrapment cases and terrorism charges leveled at anarchists there; and provide more context to last episode’s call to flag-burning action from South Korean anarchists by examining the historical and political contexts of the flag for Korean radicals. We also discuss the Suruc massacre and developments among Kurdish struggles in Turkey and Syria, and expand our ongoing discussion of the concept of “terrorism” through the lens of a court ruling about gangs in El Salvador. Listener thoughts on Zeitgeist, conspiracy theories, and small-town anarchism, debunking the myth of “cops under attack” since the emergence of Black Lives Matter, and an announcement of the CrimethInc. “To Change Everything” US tour top off our usual collection of global news updates, prisoner birthdays, event announcements, and more. {September 15th, 2015}
