Solidarity with imprisoned anarchist revolutionary from Gomel, Dzmitry Rezanovich (Belarus)

Wednesday, November 11th, 2020

On the 12th of November anarchist revolutionary from Gomel, Dzmitry Rezanovich will become 31. And he is meeting his birthday in prison.

Dima is an active participant of the anarchist movement in Belarus. In 2014 he joined the revolution on barricades of Maidan in Ukraine. Soon after this he crossed the Ukrainian-Russian border by train using his brothers passport, so he was detained on the railway station in Kursk (Russian Federation) and was passed into the hands of FSB. In Russia Dima spent 4 months in the deportation center in Kursk. There he participated in the 4-days long hunger strike against conditions of imprisonment. The struggle end up successfully so locked up people got the right to take shower every day and have home food from their friends and families. Dima refused to serve in the military of Belarus: “It is not interesting for me to serve in the military of Belarus. This army can be forced to serve against people, as I have noticed a lot of times. It’s better to accept prison for 2 years than go to army”. At the moment Dima is a hostage of the KGB together with 3 other anarchists. They were detained near the Belarus-Ukrainian border on the night of October 29. They were charged under part 3 of article 289 of the Criminal Code of Belarus (act of terrorism committed by an organized group) and article 295 of the Criminal Code of Belarus (illegal arms trafficing). Dima is refusing to testify.

We are calling for solidarity actions with rebel Dima Rezanovich! Let’s make actions during all this week.

Received on 27.03.17:

We, the partisan-anarchists, take responsibility for the symbolic attack on March 24, 2017 on the building of the Inspectorate of the Ministry of Taxes of the Republic of Belarus for the Gomel region.

We threw two Molotov cocktails into the window one of cabinet. At the time of the attack hundreds of thousands of people were spiritually with us throughout the country and beyond. This energy gave us great strength
and right.

Let’s note that it was not principally for us to attack specifically this building. Any other inspection would also suit: regional, city, district – it does not matter. Each of them deserved the people’s revenge. The tax authorities regularly called and sent out “letters of happiness” about levying a tax on the unemployed. At the very moment when the people in Belarus were crushed by economic extortion from the state and firmly said: “Basta! to tax and regime”; when protesters claim to state policy and are outraged by the work of tax inspections, the officials, sitting in the offices, continue to indulge the authorities in stealing money of workers and temporarily unemployed people. They do not think that they are in complicity with state racket, i.e. Crime, which includes a whole list of punitive measures against common people: blackmail, extortion, threats, repression, enforcement to social and economic slavery.
