Dozens of anarchists arrested in Belarus after anti-government protests

Biggest protests in Belarus in the last 10 years

In Belarus last weeks people took to the streets to fight the law against social parasitism – law that was signed by dictator Lukashenko in 2015, but started troubling population only at the beginning of the 2017. Thousands took to the streets in Minsk, Brest, Gomel and many other smaller cities all around the country, to show their discontent with the law and the current regime. The protests seems to have little influence from “official” opposition- instead of that people previously not involved in the politics are organizing together. In several places anarchist played quite a big role in the protests. Last week belarusian government started repressions against those on the streets – up until now over 48 people were detained and prosecuted for different violations. (more…)

Appellate court granted a commutation for Brest antifascists (Belarus)

Saturday, December 19th, 2015

On December 15 a regional appellate court have commuted the sentence of
two Brest antifascists, convicted on charges of participating in a mass
fight with neonazis that took place on May 8, 2013. The new sentence of
Dzmitry Stsyashenka is 3 years and of Roman Bogdan – 6 years of penal
colony. The sentence was commuted by two years for each prisoner, most
probably because they had paid the damage to the injured noenazi (all in
all about 3500 euros). Almost half of it was paid by their relatives.

Brest: Tough sentences announced to Brest antifascists (Belarus)

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

A verdict was delivered today in the case of Brest antifascists accused
of participation in a group fight with neonazis which happened on May 8,
2013.

Antifascists were tried under the art. 339.3 (malicious group
hooliganism) and 147.2 (malicious bodily harm). The case was qualified
as malicious due to the fact of pepper spray usage in the fight.

Dzmitry Stsyashenka got 5 years of penal colony with reinforced regime
(339.3) and 500 euro of damages to be paid to the injured nazis.

Roman Bogdan got 8 years of penal colony with reinforced regime (339.3,
147.2) and 3500 euro of damages to be paid to the injured nazis.

One more antifascist (full name unknown) got 5 years of penal colony
with reinforced regime (339.3) and 500 euro of damages to be paid to the
injured nazis.

It should be pointed out that in 2014 Dzmitry Zvan’ko was sentenced to 5
years of prison for the same account. Dzmitry Stsyashenka is serving
another sentence of 4 years at the moment.

Support Dmitri Zvanko, anti-fascist prisoner from Brest (Belarus)

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

Dmitri Zvanko – is anti-fascist from Brest. He was arrested 9th of May 2013, as one of 5 anti-fascists who were suspected of fighting with far-right activists the day before. Arrested anti-fascists were beaten up and put under psychological pressure by cops, Dmitri filed a complaint about his treatment although he was pressured not to do so. On the 19th of May four of the arrested were released, but Dmitri was charged with statute 339.3 of the Belarusian criminal codex (malicious hooliganism with a group of people), which carries a prison sentence from 3 to 10 years. Lawyers are afraid that statute 147.2 (grievous bodily harm) may be added, which would mean a prison sentence between 5 and 10 years.
