Photo of the day "Oil companies do not value our life; they want us to all die. In the past two years, we have experienced 10 oil spills and fishermen can no longer sustain their families. It is not tolerable." -Williams Mkpa, a community leader in Ibeno, Nigeria
Despite the massive PR campaign coming from the bastards at British Petroleum, it's reassuring that some people have long memories (see above photo). It's not as though BP suffered a severe enough economic backlash from the destruction they unleashed on the Gulf either when service stations reported only a 5% drop in sales across the board. Perhaps the BP spill was just little too close to home for business as usual to go on, BP reported a $15 billion dollar loss in the second quarter due to the costs of managing the spill, a large scale ecological collapse for the region.
Europe's second largest oil corporation has little to fear in the long run, just check out the track record of Exxon Mobil or Shell, 40 years of oil spills and systematic destruction of the earth and human communities in the Nigerian Delta has had little effect on long term profits or public perception, due to their massive PR operations and the general lack of action from the west over just about any atrocity in Africa. Despite all of their baggage, 2nd quarter 2010 profits from Shell were $4.5 billion dollars, Exxon Mobil pulled in $7.56 billion, both companies are party to the continued repression of the resistance to their operations in the Niger Delta.
If the Nigerian model is any sign of what's to come, the impunity of oil companies will continue to varying degrees whether in the Delta, the Gulf, or perhaps even the Mediterranean soon enough. So don't hold your breath for any of these oil companies to be reigned in by any state actor anytime soon either, the demands for profit and the explosion of the eco-crisis have gone hand in hand for decades now with little consequence for those in power. Without the intervention of a popular and effective direct action movement aimed at destroying the worldwide menace of industrial capitalism, we will no doubt continue to see this disaster spread to every corner of the earth until the bitter end.
During the meeting, Putin was personally summoned to a straight up fight by one of the participators , who promised to "beat the Russian imperialism." Some time later, Revolutionary Confederation of Anarcho-Syndicalists (RKAS) hanged a statement about the events in Khimki, as well as an invitation to free market to be held in the heart of Tel Aviv next Friday.
RKAS - Israel and the Committee for Workers' International organised the picket.

FORT COLLINS – Firefighters Wednesday morning were still on the scene of a three-alarm fire that caused more than $1 million in damage in northwest Fort Collins on Tuesday evening.
The fire broke out shortly after 5 p.m. at a 75-by-200-foot single-story warehouse and workshop at Forney Industries, 1830 LaPorte Ave., sending a heavy cloud of noxious smoke over the city.
This morning, fire investigators with Poudre Fire Authority and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were beginning to seek the fire’s cause and exactly what burned. Firefighters remained at the fire to douse any lingering hot spots, said PFA Capt. Sharon McNeil.
Air-quality tests last night prompted firefighters to conclude that the smoke, while irritating, posed little direct threat to the public. The visible smoke has dissipated this morning, although the smell still lingers.
At the fire site, foam and water still drip from the corrugated metal sides of the building, which collapsed as the fire roared through it. At least one of the metal beams supporting the roof appears to have buckled from intense heat.
PFA spokesman Patrick Love said no one was injured in the fire, but that one area resident complained of breathing difficulties due to the smoke. Love said no additional information about that person was available.
Forney Industries President and CEO Steve Anderson said the company, a longtime family-owned distribution company, won’t suffer too badly from the loss of the building.
“It was more overflow storage than anything,” he said on Tuesday evening. “We can re-order a lot of the product in there and it’s insured so I don’t think we’ll have too many problems.”
Forney Industries has operated in Fort Collins for more than 80 years. The company offers more than 4,500 products ranging from hardware, automotive and farm and ranch equipment, according to the company’s Website.
In 1949, a fire at Forney Industries caused $235,000 worth of damage to the company’s sole building at the time.
This follows an incident earlier in the week in which a resident in the 7800 block of Durham in the Heatherwood subdivision reported hearing an explosion.
The next morning, an explosive device was recovered.
An earlier incident occurred on July 1 when someone threw one of the homemade devices from a pickup truck and a bystander kicked it, causing it to explode.
Boulder County Sheriff Commander Rick Brough said all the devices are similar.
They are 12-to-16 ounce capped plastic bottles that contain a liquid chemical and aluminum foil.
In the latest incidents, Brough said deputies went to the Somerset subdivision swimming pool about 3 p.m. Wednesday on a report of a suspicious container.
Brough said the deputies found the remnants of four explosive devices – plastic bottles that had erupted – in the area around the pool, tennis courts and in an adjacent field.
He said one of the devices was thrown into the pool house where it exploded, causing about $1,000 in damage.
About 12:50 a.m. today, a deputy patrolling the subdivision located three more explosive devices in the same area.
Brough said that because of the multiple incidents involving the exploding bottles, the public needs to be cautious. The chemical reaction in the bottles produces hydrogen gas which is flammable, said Brough.
The most recent incident occurred late Monday night when a resident in the 7800 block of Durham Way in the Heatherwood subdivision reported hearing an explosion.
Tuesday morning, a ruptured plastic bottle with its lid intact was found near the location of the explosion reported at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The sheriff’s office said that the bottle had been ruptured from some type of an explosion.
An additional search of the subdivision by sheriff’s deputies failed to find any additional devices.
Sheriff’s Commander Rick Brough said that at 8 p.m. on July 1, a plastic bottle was thrown from a black Chevrolet pickup at the intersection of Pawnee and Longview Drive in the Morton Heights subdivision in Niwot.
When a witness kicked the bottle, it exploded, said Brough. Neither the person kicking the bottle nor a second person standing nearby were injured.
Brough said the bottle contained chemicals that when combined created an explosion.
Brough said the Boulder Sheriff’s Office is warning the public of the two incidents because of the dangers involved.
In both Monday night’s incident, and the one in July, the devices were 12-16 ounce capped plastic bottles that contained a liquid chemical and aluminum foil.
Citizens are being cautioned against picking up suspicious containers that are found in their mailboxes, the street or on their lawns.
Mitie national headquarters in emersons green were visited. 43 windows smashed.
To the Mitie workers we say our battle is not against you. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. We sympathise with the workers who were made redundant.
To the Mitie bosses we say feeling nervous, under attack and unsure of the future? Welcome to Precarity.
There will be more visits.
Two Mitie vehicles were visited in staple hill and lockleaze. Tyres punctured, windscreens smashed and bodywork damaged. This was done for the same reasons.

Police sources said that three men wearing motorcycle helmets approached the consulate, located on Aghiou Dimitriou Street in the city center, at about 4 a.m. From a distance, they started swearing at the two policemen who were standing guard outside the building. One of the three assailants allegedly shouted: “Pigs, we are going to burn you,” before two firebombs were thrown. One Molotov cocktail landed a few meters from the guards’ sentry post and set fire to a climbing ivy on the outer wall of the consulate; the other exploded in midair. Nobody was injured and no arrests were made.
Authorities are treating it as just another of the many firebomb attacks that take place in the northern city. Nevertheless, due to the sensitive nature of the matter, the Greek government was quick to condemn the incident “absolutely and categorically.”
“Acts like these, regardless of the motives involved, are unacceptable and are directed against Greece itself,” said government spokesman Giorgos Petalotis. “Our society has zero tolerance for such acts. Those responsible will be arrested and brought to justice.
“We express our sorrow to the Turkish government,” he added.
Alternate Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas and Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu discussed the matter over the telephone. The Foreign Ministry said that Droutsas assured Davutoglu the matter was being investigated and everything was being done to catch the attackers.

If you have come here, it is because you are a sympathizer that does not want them to continue torturing the childhood of Mapuche children. Because you share the principal that we are not owners of the land, but part of it. Because you are sick and tired of the continual police abuses committed with complete impunity with the support and complicity of the global economic-political power.
You arrived here because of your love for life and because you found out that a handful of incarcerated human beings putting themselves at risk through a Hunger Strike to denounce the continual violations they are committing against them, against their people.
You are here and we have met each other, but we are not done with each other, no more can you close your eyes, no more can you turn your back on us...you are already a part of this campaign that seeks to show solidarity with human beings who seek the same as you, a world more human, more just for all.
Land, Culture, Justice and Liberty!
Sympathise with the Mapuche political prisoners on Hunger Strike!
Because resistance is not terrorism...NO to the antiterrorism law!
Enough of the farce, liberty to all the Mapuche political prisoners!
Unite, SIGN, Disseminate, Act, Resist,...Exist later.
The hunger strike began on July 12th, 2010, with five Mapuche at El Manzano Prison in the city of Concepcion and another 13 at the Penitentiary Centre (CCP) in
As reported by Global Voices Online, the group represents about a third of the total number of Mapuche who are currently on trial under the country's infamous Anti-terrorist Law.
According to the

Statement of Mapuche Political Prisoners of El Manzano Prison – Concepcion – ON
HUNGER STRIKE The Mapuchepolitical prisoners, currently being held in the “El Manzano” detention centre in Concepcion, inform the Mapuche Nation and public international and national opinion the following:
Beginning today Monday, July 12th, 2010, we begin a liquid HUNGER STRIKE to the final consequences.
The reasons for this drastic and extreme determination is in response to series of situations that we have been denouncing unto the unjust political/judicial procedures that we are subject to and violate all our rights as MAPUCHE and political prisoners. The reasons for this drastic and extreme determination is in response to series of situations that we have been denouncing unto the unjust political/judicial procedures that we are subject to and violate all our rights as MAPUCHE and political prisoners.
In summary, we denounce that we have been part of Media Setups carried out by the Public
Ministrythrough Anti Mapuche prosecutors and corrupt police forces. It is in this way that the Chilean State, in defense of the corporate interests in the conflict with our People and in their urge to persecute and annihilate the Mapuche Movement, has criminalized the just cause of the communities, imprisoning and launching themselves against our people; imposing several dictatorial and fascist laws on honest social activists.
At the same time, we also denounce the existence of a strong and grotesque Anti-Mapuche campaign orchestrated by the economic and political Right of this country, who use their means of communication, their prosecutors and politicians with the objective of convincing public opinion.
Due to all of the above, we declare that we will continue our hunger strike unless these just demands are met:
1. STOP the application of the Antiterrorist Law with the Mapuche People. This is expressed by the complete
Abolitionof the Antiterrorist Law legislated by the Pinochet dictatorship.
2. STOP the process of Military Courts on the Mapuche People. Thus is expressed by the complete Abolition of Military Courts in Chile.
Freedomfor ALL the Mapuche Political Prisoners imprisoned in different jails throughout the Chilean State. This is expressed by:
Lastly, we call out on Our People to Mobilize, to protest and struggle for what we think is a just cause; including social and political organizations to remain alert of the situation.
- Demanding a just and fair Trial.
- An end to the political/judicial setups; ending all external and foul procedures, ending the use of faceless witnesses and the end of the practices that violate basic human rights such as extortion, threats, physical and psychological torture and the degrading conditions of detention centers.
- Demilitarization of Mapuche zones where communities reclaim their political and territorial rights.

thomas meyer-falkfor now
c/o jva bruchsal
d 76646 bruchsal
because of all this i have to spend 15 years, 9 months and three weeks in prison. due to my alleged dangerousness (during the trial i had offensively pleaded my cause instead of giving in and "regretting") i shall be kept under arrest ("sicherungsverwahrung") afterwards.
Within the following three trials, 5 years and three months have been added to the previous sentence, because many politicians and jurists felt to have been either insulted or threaten by my person.
2/3 of the sentence have been finished in november 2007; therefore i have applied for my release from prison.
In fact, the paragraph 57 of the penal code prescribes the possibility of an earlier release after 2/3 of the sentence, as long as such decision „ takes in consideration the security-interests of the collectivity“, say one does not have to expect any further crime by the person (defacto such an earlier release takes place only in 30% of the times).
Because of the overwork of the judge, the sickness of the chief judge Kleinheinz and a change of my lawyer, the process took longer time.
The prison of Bruchsal, in the figure of miss Göbel, took position several times on this: they could not support an earlier release in my case.
The main reason for this would be that i never „show publicly any empathy for the victims of (my) crimes“, i would put in question the objectiveness of those facts, everytime i write something, politicians and judges would feel often threaten from me.
I would refuse to speak with the prisons´s worker-in-charge regarding such cases.
However, my „behavior towards the prison´s workers (...) became clearly less confrontative (talking about my „love to make complains“), but, as the prison establishment wrote within their most recent claim, i would not aloud „any deeper access to (my) personal experiences and feelings to the prison workers“.
With a directive dated 18.4.08, the court ordered a new criminal prognosis.
The professor Foster (university of Tubingen) has been ordered in charge of this.
Since i will attend a learning course in the prison from june 2008 (for which each partecipant has to pay 500 euros), i asked the appraiser to begin his work after the end of the course.
I also send him the bill of that course and told him i would be ready by november or december.
However, i fought with the Bruchsal prison about where such appraisal would be supposed to take place; miss Göbel desired my transfer towards Tubingen, so that one perhaps would have found out how i would react/behave within a different context.
I personally answered that i would have than refuse such appraisal upon my eventual transfer to Tubingen.
This decision has been taken because normally one has to hold out around three weeks inside a dirty, cold transport-cell.
Visits and phonecalls are hardly possible if not at all, there is not any offer regarding free-time; without even mentioning that already the form of how one gets moved through big prisoner transport-buses is considered as degrading, even by some jurists.
Most prisoners play the game of the Justice, take place in the bus and sit afterwards calmly in their transport-cell, only to become angry later and tell about how the conditions have been miserable and that one should „actually“ do something against it.
Therefore my lawyer told to the court that either the appraisal would have taken place in Bruchsal, or it would have been refused.
Moreover, i added that the prison establishment could test me freely within a changed environment, say putting me in daily leave (which they of course refused to do).
Realistically, one has to see that there is not chance for an earlier release.
There is not any appraiser who would consider a prisoner, who spent almost 11 years in isolation (until may 2007 i have been sitting in an isolation-cell indeed) to have high chance for a life free from crimes.
And without such a positive prognosis, no release will follow.
Moreover, it is also a question about one´s principles!
I am still fully convinced of the idea that i have a right to my freedom – without any consensus by whichever state apparatus.
And what i also will do after my release, this is my choice and no matter of any court or prisoner´s jurist, if what i am going to do afterwards will be in conflict with the laws of this State or perhaps even not.
Do i really want ot win back my possibility towards a freedom of movement at the price of the readiness to be morally corruptable, since i would submit myself to the subtle games of State, sometimes a bit more, some other a bit less? A point to which submission belongs in the first place!
And at this point i simply say „No!“.
No, neither i do want this, nor i will do this, even in the case that this would mean that the doors of the prison will not open voluntary for me further on.
Was Mao who wrote that within the struggle against your enemy every lie is usable?
Therefore should i pray the social worker, the psycologist, the jurist, the judge and the appraiser, as many other prisoners do, make them nice eyes and tell them, what a nice, in-line man i become?
And also to such a point, i say simply and clearly „No!“.
This does not have to do anything with the fact that i like to play the „martyr“, but it simply horrorifies me physically to have to bend myself.
I have pity of all prisoners who play from the very beginning the little games of the Justice, only to complain and swear afterwards.
Is my freedom important to me? Of course!.
Of course, my freedom is important to me; but the way to it is as much important.

When I arrived in Greece I was detained for some days in a prison on an island. Then I was transferred to another prison on the mainland. When I was released I already felt the fear deep in my breath. I wondered what would happen next. I asked myself where to go and where to stay. In Athens I went to the neighbourhoods, where I could find my people. I was lucky to find a friend from my village who helped me out some days so I did not sleep on the streets. In my pocket I had a white paper that limited my legal existence in Europe to 30 days. The days passed by and I had no right on any place in this world anymore. I decided to leave this country which did not want me. In Patras I tried for some months to cross the border to Italy. I was living in the trains on a marshalling yard. The trains there were not used anymore. They had no place anymore, like me. As I couldn’t succeed, I left for Komunisia. I lived in the mountains, in the cold and the dark. My only shelter was a sky full of stars. I lived in the same city with Greek people, but my world was another and the two worlds did not meet. One day I was arrested in the port. The police brought me to a prison in the port. We were 27 persons in a cell for 6. After some days I was transferred to another prison close to the border of Albania. We stayed some days there. Again we were transferred. It seemed to me as if they did not know where to put us, where to store us so that we do not disturb their lives. The bus took us far away to a store house they called a prison. The windows were far away on top of the building, our only contact to the outside world. In the night when I was dreaming I found my own place, somewhere to belong. In the day I was brutally reminded of the reality. I stayed approx. for a month there and in the end they released me. Suddenly I was free again in the middle of nowhere supposed to find my way back to civilisation on my own. But which civilisation? Which place? My life in Greece is a real life in real places, but of another category. Places where I am “illegal”, places where I am hidden, places where I am limited to a ghetto of the paperless. And if the police catch me, I have to be in prisons. I have the strong feeling that they want me to understand that this will never be my place too, that there is no place for me here. I think I understood!
According to reports, while a member of cash leaving the store, carrying a leather bag with money, approached the stranger, who once
threatened him with a sledgehammer and KARAMBINA SHORT CUN won the bag.
Then fled by car, where he waited for his partner
The first figures refer to smooth EUR 100,000.
The comrades react and push them away. One fascist takes refuge in a shop, a fight bursts and he gets out of the shop bloody and wounded.
Few months after the police arrests two people. One of them is Tonino. Our comrade and brother.
We do not care of judging the comrades’ activity. We do not look for understanding the exact dynamics of the events before choosing which side to stand for. We do not make inquires. One thing is, though, clear: Tonino is in jail for what he represents. For having always been in the forefront fighting for environmental causes, antifascism and against the repression of the state.
Guilty or innocent are categories which do not belong to us.
The aim of this blog is to put together and coordinate each solidarity event or demonstration to Tonino.
A brother in the hands of the enemy.
A jail. Us.
And the rest has the smell of the street.

Landlord Graham Stiles throws out and takes a swing at gay couple in his pub, the kngs head, in Deal, Kent.
He claims the men were acting suspiciously...
Few weeks earlier, he ejects a man and his wife who suffers from alzheimers, claiming she was upsetting other customers..
Me thinks the landlords facist attitudes may need adressing.
Perhaps drop him a line, give him a call, or even better - pop in!

On 25th of June 2010 19 people drowned in the river Evros/Meriç. 14 corpses washed ashore on the Greek side and were brought to the university clinic by an undertaker from Orestiada. After the dead had been examined and registered, the undertaker brought them to a village of the Turkish minority on the mountains above Souflí for them to be buried on muslim cemetery.
However, the corpses can now be found in a mass grave outside the village of Sideró, in inaccessible terrain. Only a sign, riddled by many gun-shots, tells that this is the
cemetery of the illegal immigrantswhere the corpses are buried. It is not immediately obvious that it is a mass grave. Upon closer inspection, one can however see holes that were excavated and again filled up by bulldozers and that can contain up to ten corpses.
Further investigation by w2eu, currently in the area to look for the corps of the father of a family who died in the incident on the 25th of June and whose family is currently in relative security shows that this practice has been ongoing for years. It is believed that between 150 and 200 dead have been buried in the mass grave. Although the local government ordered an ablution and burial according to muslim rite, the dead have merely been buried in the mass grave. This practice fundamentally lacks any respect for the dead as well as their relatives. Even an exhumation for the dead to be buried in a more dignified way is not possible anymore.
The existence of this mass grave at the external border of the EU fits the image of constant and continued humiliation and degradation of refugees. It is with a systematic brutality that refugees and migrants are stopped from crossing the borders, a brutality that even puts up with the death of those looking for protection. Even after their death, those human beings remain second class people that seemingly not even deserve a burial of human dignity.
We protest the abominable treatment of refugees and migrants and the contempt that is shown to them, no matter if dead or alive.
|Detainees at Campsfield migrant prison (maintained by GEO private prison corporation) near Oxford are currently on hunger strike in protest at their situation. This statement was released by them several days ago, but so far has not been published, only circulated on mailing lists..Second major statement from detainees|
Unlawful Detention of Detainees (Tuesday 03 August 2010)
We appreciate all the effort and support we have received.
Today we continue to fight for our rights, today, all we detainees will continue to fight for liberty and security which is our fundamental rights.
It is unbelievable that a country so great that advocates human rights and liberty, eradicated slavery still practice such inhumane treatment of humans with equal rights in its backyard with the expectation that the whole world would be unaware of these treacherous nature adhered by the institutions.
Until this moment, we have not been contacted by the UK Border Agency or Immigration in respect to our protest. The onsite immigration have hidden away and refused to engage in any communication or dialogue. This is evidently a sign of weakness by UKBA and an acceptance that our cry is for a good reason.
We read that in media that we have vending machines and onsite medical services. It is evident that the Immigration is not in touch with fundamental issues we are facing. Our lives are at risk, we have no freedom or liberty, we are been tortured, yet Immigration speaks about vending machine. These are malicious claims in an attempt to deny or play down the gravity of our determination. Can any vending machine feed 140 people?
Our lives and liberty should be considered like the rest of the 6 billion humans in the world. Our families are undergoing pain, our cases should be reviewed frequently, our detention should be justifiable, we should be given time for adequate judicial proceedings, we should not be detained indefinitely.
In July 2010 Honourable Justice Silber ruled that the fast-track policy was “unlawful and must be quashed”, however, the UK Border Agency still indulge in the fast track policy which is against the ruling of Honourable Justice Silber.
We put this question to all. Can it ever be justifiable for any organisation, institution or country to detain any human being with family (wife and children) for 3 years with?
We are also aware that there is a possibility that our efforts will be suppressed and not channelled to the appropriate body or government, however, we will continue to fight with everyday.
We all would humbly request that the parliament and cabinet address our heartily concerns as our wives, children, and we detainees are all dying, very slowly.
Tonight, we would all sleep outside on the grass floor and would refuse to sleep indoors. We deserve to be heard and until such time, we fight.
In spite of all, it is our believe that people are good at heart and should be given a right to life.
Our humble selves – Detainees
On behalf of all detainees
the inmates and guards of a modern, clean and efficient maximum security wing are slowly and increasingly brutalised until they erupt in violence. dark and macabre, and based in truth, the story is told in a traditional dramatic style combined with telephone interviews and narration. manages to instill in the viewer a true sense of claustrophobia and unease. a truly original movie that is only half the film that Cave’s script was meant to portray.

About 30 people gathered outside the prisons of Trikala and a march in the centre of the city was held yesterday aug 2nd in solidarity for the hunger strike initiated by prisoners about the appalling conditions of detention in prisons.
The gathering lasted one hour, many slogans were shouted and there was intense pulse. The cops didnt expect this at all, and we cought them off guard, so they were running around like crazy and the undercovers didnt know what to do.
We managed to get up to the entrance of the jail and the strength we took and gave the prisoners ment a lot for their struggle. They could here our slogans inside and sometimes they shouted back with their own slogans.
After the end of the intervention outside the prison we held a gathering and shared out leaflets for about an hour in the city centre and more specifically in Riga Ferraiou square. Then we marched through the city's main streets chanting slogans in solidarity with the hunger strikers, with our imprisoned comrades, slogans about the new robbery measures as well as several anticop and antifaschist ones. Slogans were writtten on many walls, e.g. in the town hall and the people's interest in asking and wanting to know about prison conditions in the hell holes of democracy was very hopefull.

The action of solidarity with the illegally arrested anti-fascists in RussiaWed, 04/08/2010 - 05:02 — editor On Wednesday, August 3 in Odessa anti-fascists, anarchists and members of leftist movements held a rally of solidarity with Russian anti-fascists - Alexey and Maxim Gaskarova Solopovym, arrested for allegedly organizing the pogrom city administration Khimki (Moscow region), although no evidence of their involvement in the events of July 28 for illegal search the apartments of arrested had been found. In protest against such a cynical state of affairs in Russia and Moscow's support of their comrades held a march 20 people from the area on April 10 to the Russian consulate in Gagarinsky plateau (where the rally was held), carrying banners and placards and handing out leaflets explaining the essence of what has happened: During the construction of highway Moscow - St. Petersburg is planned cutting of the forest area near the city of Khimki.Environmentalists and civic activists are protesting against this construction, offering alternatives, not causing such harm nature.These options were rejected, and the territory through which could pass the road - sold for redevelopment. Activists who tried to resist cutting and journalists covering their activities, under pressure from local authorities interested in construction. After the start of logging (performed without proper authorization) for environmentalists have repeatedly been attacked by members of right-wing groups, hired by "Heat" . Police and riot police ignored the attacks, have repeatedly delayed the defenders of the forest on trumped-up reasons. After the 28 th July, a group of left activists held a symbolic assault on the City Hall Khimki Moscow has begun rounding up anti-fascists, now arrested all known representatives of the movement, regardless of their participation in the rally.Now in custody are Alexey and Maxim Gaskarov Solopov. Reports of their detention are falsified, such as it is written that the activists were arrested on the spot pogrom "in the act, while they were detained only a day later and the fact of their involvement in the riots nothing is not confirmed, Maxim Solopov front detention spoke on the radio. The main argument for the prosecution today is the fact that the detainees - the anti-fascists, as the evidence is tendered found them leaflets and stickers Antifascist content. According to our data, it is under special control of the Minister of Internal Affairs and the Presidential Administration.What is happening can not be explained by the desire to punish the perpetrators of disorderly conduct, then what happens - an absurd and irrational revenge power, people who tried to speak out against corruption and tyranny. We demand the release of Maksim Solopova and Alexei Gaskarova from custody, an end to illegal arrests of anti-fascists, honest and impartial investigation into the events of 28 th of without fraud and pressure on the defendants.We recall that the crime of "Heat" employing neo-Nazis to beat the defenders of the forest administration, Khimki, on the order of which was mutilated journalist Michael Beketov, policemen who did the illegal arrest and obstructing journalistic activities go unpunished. Illegal buildings, cutting down forests and parks in the pursuit of profit - the problem is relevant not only for Russia but for Ukraine.We remind the authorities of both countries, that the unwillingness to listen to the peaceful and legitimate demands of civil society activists inevitably gives rise to radical protest. The attempt to suppress the protest draconian methods leads not to order, and to Esklatsii violence and terror. During the picket, chanting slogans: "Plant a forest, and not activists," "Anti-fascism is not a crime", "Freedom Alexei Gaskarova and Maxim Solopovu "," Wood cut - Khimki burn "," We need a lot of Khimki "(paraphrasing the slogan of 68-year" We need a lot of Vietnams), etc. Source: http://afa.od.ua/2010/08/217
