20.12.2008 | Various solidarity actions for Greek rebellion around Russia on international solidarity day 20th of December

Due to time difference, Siberian anarchists were probably first ones to protest on 20th of December.

In Barnaul, cops were already waiting for demonstrators at the beginning point at October square, they went to follow demonstration and eventually forced people to roll banners and flags. People however kept marching, shouting "ACAB" and "Comrade mayor, go to hell!", and distributing leaflets. This was too much for the coppers, and eventually 10 anarchists and others were arrested.

(Barnaul Autonomous Action,

In Irkutsk, Autonomous Action and others organised a picket at local polytechnical university. They had banner "Solidarity is our weapon", but there was a technical fault - banner was made with ducktape which could not take -30 celsius (0 F) Siberian breeze, and letters dropped
- thus people could only distribute flyers.

In Tyumen, anarchists raised a black flag to the roof of abandonded building of Machine Construction Technical Institute and distributed leaflets.


There was also at least one action in European side of Russia, in St. Petersburg around 8 PM local time one of the biggest offices of Baltic Bank was attacked with paintbombs. Anarchist attackers left leaflets, which called for protests against state violence. Text of the leaflet is available at

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".

A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.

To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
