Within days of actions with the anarchists and anti-fascists imprisoned in Russia actions in the city of Malmyo in the south of the country and in at the youth festival "Peace & Love Festivalen" in the city of Burlenge have taken place.
In Malmyo on the building opposite to the central railway station two banners have been hung out: Destroy police stay (Down with a police state) and Free Putins's prisoners (Freedom to Putin's prisoners).
From 1 to July 10, 2016, a call to action in solidarity with anarchists and antifascists imprisoned-e-s in Russia was made by the Anarchist Black Cross of Moscow. Indeed, the political and repressive situation in Russia is very hard for our comrades fighting for anarchism and fascism (and more generally for all those fighting for human rights), and many of them found themselves es imprisoned in high security prisons or labor camps because of their activism, often condemned es for terrorism or violence. Some were convicted on the basis of confessions obtained under torture, others on facts which they were not even present .
July 2nd, in Simferopol near the FSB and Crimean prosecutor’s offices activists held pickets as a part of International Days of Solidarity with political anarchist and anti-fascist prisoners. Authorities had not confirmed pickets, and police had been at the venue.
Despite these facts, activists uncovered placards near the FSB office. After 20 minutes of quarrels with the police, activists decided to change their position and met Crimean prosecutor’s office with a single picket.
In the Spanish capital Madrid, anarchists and anti-fascists joined the campaign of solidarity with political prisoners in Russia
Imagine the following situation. Due to a strike, public transportation is paralyzed all over the country. Some restaurants and shops shut their doors and 30,000 people are gathered in Helsinki to oppose the current cabinet’s austerity measures, despite of wind and rain. This (18th of September - trans.) is the first joint demonstration by all the confederations of labor unions in Finland since the last depression 24 years ago.
In Yekaterinburg May 30, 2015 rally against the tyranny of the police. The occasion was a series of unjustified detentions of public activists cops of the Police Department №5, including anti-fascists on May 9 for a photo with a scarf Omonia at the monument to the heroes of World War II.
In the center of Helsinki, at the building of Holiday Inn, action of anarchists took place against a conference of far-right parties, which took place in Holiday Inn of St. Petersburg. Around 15 participators encouraged a boycott of hotel chain.
Before the St. Petersburg forum, many protest letters were sent to management of the hotel chain, but with no reaction. Leaflets were distributed and passers by were told about the right-wing conference which took place in St. Petersburg. Leaflets were also passed to reception of the hotel.
Although our group exists for four years already, ANTIFA Niš is still an informal, grassroot and self-organized group, which is the politics we do not plan to abandon no matter how this fact can actually slow us down. It is only under these conditions do we consider our struggle sincere and true.
The forth presidential term of Alexander Lukashenko will expire in 2015. In 21 years Lukashenko has managed to suppress almost all social struggles in the country, kill several political opponents in the 90s, and eradicate nearly all of the official opposition. Lukashenko didn’t allow Belarusian society to transcend the limits of Soviet mentality.
The trade union for public and welfare services (JHL) went on wildcat strike to oppose the "marketization" of Palmia, a municipally-owned service enterprise. Right-wing leadership of the city attempts to reorganise 50% of Palmia so that it must participate to tenders, which will lead to substantial wage cuts for the workers. The seizure of subway and tram transport by striking workers proved to be a powerful weapon in the struggle against the bosses. However, the Helsinki Regional Transport Authority (HSL) organized replacement transportation to nullify its effect. Anarchists announced that they will block all the replacement buses and soon after that AKT (the union of bus drivers, amongst others) announced a strike on those routes.
This morning not a single replacement bus left Rautatientori between 8:00 and 8:40 because anarchists and others physically blocked the route by standing in front of them and/or sitting in doorways. Everything went very well. However, HSL then announced that replacement buses would no longer go to Rautatientori but instead turn back eastwards upon arriving in Hakaniemi. It was then that things got worse.
We split up into two groups so that a picket could be formed at Hakaniemi without abandoning Rautatientori. It was at this moment that police violently dispersed the picket line and started taking people into custody. Approximately six people were arrested in Rautatientori and lots of pictures began to circulate. When we got to Hakaniemi, there were more cops than protestors so only a minor delay was achieved and two comrades were arrested.
Some people then went to Suvilahti and caused another delay, again at the price of two arrests by police. After this, they went to Kisahalli to wait for said comrades and others to be released by the police. Upon being released, these comrades were given freshly cooked food by some of their fellow pickets as a gesture of political solidarity.
The picket received huge media coverage and surprisingly strong public support. It also incited significant opposition from right-wing reactionaries and others unmoved by the struggles of workers to exercise their collective agency in defence of public services. At the end of the day, the police had distributed some €500 in fines and some protesters suffered minor physical injuries
YYA (Ystävyys, Yhteistoiminta ja Avunanto -network) organized 8.9.2014 a demonstration opposing the war in Ukraine. The demonstration opposed Russia's invasion in Ukraine, the war in Ukraine and demanded end to the war crimes.
Out of many human rights violations in the war, the demonstration emphasized the kidnappings of movie director Oleg Sentsov and antifascist Alexander Koltšenko, who were taken to Russia. The demonstrarion didn't support any army or state and opposed every kind of nationalism. About 70 people showed their solidarity by attending the demonstration.
We went and dropped two banners as a protest against treatment of Bolotnaya square demonstrators.
A sentence for Bolotnaya case is expected next monday, 24rd of December.
Our action was also in solidarity for all political prisoners.
Freedom for all political prisoners!

In end of the event, a support photo was taken for Joel, who is imprisoned in Sweden for defending anti-racist demonstration in Kärrtorp of Stockholm last December.
Event was held near the building of the visa center in Greece on November 9 at the day of United Action. Halkidiki is located in the north of Greece, and it is Aristotle’ homeland. This is one of the main recreational areas of the country, which is visited by thousands of tourists every year. Harming the environment, the
Eldorado Gold Company shows the hypocrisy and greed of capitalists. In the pursuit of profits, they will stop at nothing.
4 of November in Yekaterinburg was held an antifascist action. This day Russian neo-nazis traditionally organizing so-called "Russian March". In fact, Russian holiday called "Day of National Unity" is the day of nazi riot and xenophobia.
We took to the streets on that day in order to show the righ-wing scum that not everyone will be tacitly support the further transformation of Russia into a fascist state. We used the banner "No to fascism of all kinds", because Chauvinism has different manifestations and it affects both the ruling elite and the poor.
