This morning Belarussian anarchists distributed information, that last night 3.30 a.m. OMON moved to destroy tent camp that has been put up in the city center to protest fraud elections in Belarus. Opposition demonstrators had gathered in a central square in the Belarussian capital Minsk since President Alexander Lukashenko secured a third term in office last Sunday.


Belarussian anarchists call for solidarity!

This morning Belarussian anarchists distributed information, that last night 3.30 a.m. OMON moved to destroy tent camp that has been put up in the city center to protest fraud elections in Belarus. 30-40 tents were trashed, around 500 people arrested. Among destroyed tents there was a tent of Belarussian indymedia (belarus.indymedia.org), and among arrested there many known anarchists, such as members of anarcho-punk band Deviation (singer Stas Pochyobut) and editors of banned satirical anarchist paper Navinki. Anarchists were constantly present in the tent camp with few dozen people. Arrested people were heavily brutalized. As all the police stations in the city are full of people arrested during last 10 days (opposition estimates number of people arrested all around Belarus as 5000), people arrested in square were taken to unknown destinations off the city limits. Their place, condition and charges pressed against them are currently unknown.

Belarussian anarchist also ask for any kind of solidarity actions in Belarussian embassies around the world!

PS: Please upload this information to your local indymedias.... you may replace "anarchists" with "indymedia activists", because in Minsk these are more or less the same ;-)


Check Euronews today... I heard red and black flags were prominently shown in their coverage. Even official Belarussian television credited anarchists... they reported: "yesterday anarchists showed up in the Kastrychnitskaya square, and now there is total anarchy there". This together with a coverage that in the square, the services of child prostitutes were sold with 60 dollars, that everybody was paid $50 for each day, and used syringes were shown to "prove" that everybody there is a junkie...
