On January 10, 2015, in the club “Pirates” there was supposed to be a concert of several punk bands including Italian “Kalashnikov”.
However, on information received from witnesses, this never happened. Approximately during the middle of the set of the first band, the club was surrounded by police cars and “branded” vans of Riot police without numbers. Front doors were locked, people were banned to leave the building. After that riot police in masks broke into the building. Without explanations they put everyone face to the walls with hands behind the head. This was followed by ID check and control of personal belongings. The whole procedure took around one hour and a half with constant video recording from police. Distro with anarchist and other political literature was of particular interest for them – they were searching for owners of items without any success. However they confiscated all the items from distro including political books, musical CDs and Vinyls. The whole raided as abruptly as it had begun: after checking everyone they left the place without any explanations.
3 detainees reported after this. The concert just ended before it could even begin. Apparently the preparation for the elections of the President of the Republic of Belarus has already begun.
Update on yesterday’s raid on the concert:
3 people were detained who were selling items at the distro table. Initially, all of them were charged with distribution of extremist materials, later one of the detainees was released, but on Monday there will be court on minor Hooliganism. The trial of two other detainees will also be held on Monday in Minsk. Pre-court will be held at 11:00. Till the trial 2 people will stay in jail.
On January 12 in Minsk court have ruled on three cases of people detained on Saturday at New Year Punk Show. All the three people were charged with minor hooliganism, two of them were additionally charged with distribution of extremist materials. During the court the Judge have found violations in protocols on distribution of extremist materials so the documents were send back to police to fix the violations.
The Hearing started with Judge forbidding friends and comrades to enter the court room. However several people managed to go through and observe the process. All the detainees were accused of swearing at the moment of riot police entrance to the club. They all accepted the charges. The result was not so optimistic: the girl got around 100 euro fine, two guys were sentenced to 10 days in prison. It is still unclear when the hearing on distribution of extremist materials will be held.
One of the detainees reported that he was beaten up in police station.

On the 11th of December 2011, in the very conservative and religious province of Aceh in Indonesia, 64 punks who were attending a punkrock show, were arrested and taken to jail without any criminal charges whatsoever.
The only reason for them to be victim of that totally arbitrary state repression was that they are punks. The police shaved their hair off and removed their piercings, their clothes were taken away from them, replaced by “decent” ones and they were forced to wash themselves in a “religious ritual”. Then they were brainwashed and “re-educated” for ten days through “religious education” and “military discipline”.
Against this outrageous police action, solidarity actions and demonstrations took place in Moscow, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, China and Malaysia. (more…)

15 December 2011
On December the 15th a group of anonymous punks from Moscow decided to act upon receiving news of brutal state repression of Indonesian punk-scene. We consider ourselves anarcho-punks and these news offended us in the deepest sense. We wont tolerate any religion to hold sway over living being’s freedom, especially over our subculture. Thus on the same evening we gathered to express our rage. We chose Indonesian embassy as our target. For us solidarity starts on subcultural level. We feel that modern Russian anarchists pay too little attention to subcultures of resistance. We wish the news of our action to reach Indonesian comrades. We hope they will have their spirits soar after hearing that in such far-away country there are folks who feel solidarity with their struggle.
Punk is not a crime. Religion is fascism. Fight for your looks.
We didn’t want to make video, but it was agreed upon after a tedious discussion that even the most pacifist action should have video documentation. So here it goes:

Police arrest 64 punx at concert, shave their heads and imprison them for 're-education', Aceh (Indonesia)
Thursday, December 15th, 2011
Dozens of young men and women have been detained for being “punk” and “disturbing the peace” in Aceh, Indonesia’s most devoutly Muslim province. They are being held in a remedial school, where they are undergoing government “re-education”. The 64 punks, many of whom are from as far away as Bali or Jakarta, were picked up on Saturday 10 December night during a local concert. Many young teens sport punk hairstyles, in keeping with worldwide punk culture, but against the norms of the keenly religious in Aceh. (more…)
