Solidarity with Belarusian political prisoners

From the Colombian prison of La Picota in our condition of political prisoners, of insurgent fighters who took up arms against state terrorism at the service of a criminal and disgraceful oligarchy that rules our country; we sympathize with all those anywhere in the world who rise up against all forms of oppression and domination over human beings and over the people.

Specifically, we support the day of action in solidarity with Belarusian political prisoners from June 30 to July 2, most notably with fellow anarchists who were arrested in the fall of 2010 and sentenced to spend 3 to 8 years in prison in May 2011, by a series of attacks on symbols of state and capital. In October 2011, it was recognized their status as political prisoners thanks to the support of civil rights organizations, but even when in August 2011the penalties were remitted to 30 political prisoners, this didn't happen with any of the anarchist political prisoners, because of their refusal to accept their guilt and apologize to President Alexander Lukashenko, who in retaliation refused the amnesty to them.

We support this decent attitude, this moral firmness, this integrity, ethics and political loyalty to the rebel and revolutionary cause; and we demand to the Belarusian government their immediate release. We support as well the demand to cease the repression of the prison administration against political prisoners including the fellow anarchists.

Rebellion and resistance are not crimes, but peoples’ rights against all forms of oppression and domination,and is a duty for all who embrace the commitments of the revolutionary struggle against the total extension of capitalism, its system of international oligopoly and the global monopolistic concentration with its consequences in terms of environmental depredations, the growth of inequality, the exponential growth of poverty,insecurity, poverty and the needs of millions and millions of human beings,while 2% of the world’s richest men hold more than half of global wealth.

Freedom for political prisoners in Belarus and for our fellow anarchists!
