How the FSB is Manufacturing a Terrorism Case Against Antifascists in Russia.

In the run-up to presidential elections and the FIFA World Cup, repressions against antifascists and anarchists started in Russia. In Autumn 2017, 6 people were arrested in Penza; several of them had weapons and explosives planted on them.

FSB officers then tortured the antifascists right in the detention facility: they applied naked wires to the activists’ various body parts and turned the electricity on, they beat them up, hanged them upside down. While torturing them, the agents made the activists learn by heart the story the FSB needed: they were supposed to confess of having founded and belonging to a terrorist organization called “The Network”. In late January 2018, two more antifascists were arrested in Saint Petersburg. They, too, were beaten up, tortured with electric current, and forced to incriminate themselves by confirming they were members of the “Network”.

Right now 11 people are under arrest, 2 of them indicted in organizing “Terrorist Community”. According to Russian laws, this is punishable by 15-20 years in prison

Please, come on Saturday the 6th of October to the Anarchist library (address Eerste Schinkelstraat 14-16 Amsterdam) at 18:00 to learn more about this case, how you can help and to write solidarity letters to Russian Anarchists and antifascists!
