Repression in Belarus

In the beginning of september 2010 a wave of repression against social activists and especially from anarchist szene in Belarus erupt. As a trigger therefor functioned for the security forces an arson attack against the russian embassy in Minsk. Just bevor the coming the presidential elections this was a suitable reason for the lukashenko-regime to eliminate critical voicesIn the course of that nearby 100 activistis from different cities (grodno, brest, gomiel, minsk, soligorsk, babrujsk, novopolotsk) were brought to questions to the KGB, search warrant were executed and during this time a lot of people were arrested. 7 personen of the anarchist movement are still in custody, partly since september last year. There are obviously infringements of human rights on the part of the security forces and the ambitions of the regime are clear: demonstration of power and show trials to knock out regime critics. The detained are accused to be responsible for a variety of action against the State and capital in 2009 und 2010. In the beginnings of investigations of the „proceedings against the anarchists“ they were charged under articlls 339.2 (hooliganism), what imply a detention about 6 years. As recently as throughout the investigations in the “Verfahren gegen Anarchist_innen” they were blamed further offences, like article 218.2(3)“intentional destruction or damage to property” and “computer sabotage” (Part 2 of Art. 351 Criminal Code). Defendants face up to 12 years imprisonment.
