Week of Action for Anarchist Prisoners in Azerbaijan – 28/5 to 5/6
CALL FOR WEEK OF ACTİON in Support of Anarchist Prisoners in Azerbaijan (28th of May– 5th of June)
Anarchists from Azerbaijan, Bayram Mammadov and Qiyas Ibrahimov, spraypainted the monument of Haydar Aliyev. The message was: “Happy slave days”. This action was done on the eve of Heydar Aliyev’s birthday on May 10, 2016, which is annually being celebrated by the government in a wasteful manner. Given an absolute personality cult of Aliyev, such an act was severely condemned by the government (under the leadership of his son Ilham Aliyev) and the activists were arrested on May 10, 2016. Police have planted drugs on them to avoid charging them on the grounds of hooliganism.
This is not the first dirty trick of Azerbaijan government. The government that try to create a sense of happy citizens and a free government and cover every threat against its absolute power with conspiracies, try to demonstrate every political activists as drug addicts, caging the every revolutionary action behind the lies.
Heroin which is planted by police are punishable by up to twelve years of imprisonment.
To apologize for their acts in front of Heydar Aliyev’s monuments or to suffer hours of torture… This is the message to our comrades who didn’t deny their actions. To deny their political personality or 12 years of imprisonment!
We, as anarchists, are in solidarity with our comrades who chose direct action and transformed their words and theories into a force in motion. So be it in Azerbaijan, in Greece, in Chile, in Spain, İster Azerbaycan, in all over the world, our ideas cut across all boundaries.
We stand by the recalcitrants against this authoritarian circus.
We call every comrades from around the world join the Solidarity and Action Week in Support of Anarchist Prsioners in Azerbaijan (28th of May– 5th of June).
Power to Bayram Mammadov and Qiyas Ibrahimov who are in hunger strike!
Destruction for Prison Cells!
Until the Diffusion of every symbol of repression with the hammer of freedom!
