A video message from Los Fastidios and the Stage Bottles in solidarity with the Days of Action

Not so long ago, in Rostock, in the north-east of Germany, the anti-fascist festival "Riot in My Heart" took place. After the performance, band members from Los Fastidios(Verona, Italy) and the Stage Bottles (Frankfurt, Germany)as well as one of the organizers of the festival made a video message in solidarity with their comrades in Russia. This is a reminder for the Days of International Action in solidarity with Russian Antifascists which have been repressed by authorities, to take place from the 10th to the 17th of June. Various Moscow antifascists including Alexey Olesinov and Alexey Sutuga are being accused of having participated in a fight, which took place on the 17th of December 2011, at the club "Vozdukh." They are being charged with Article 213 Part 2 of the Criminal Code ("hooliganism"). They are also being charged with having caused bodily injury to a resident of Moscow on the 4th of December 2011. Neither defendant accepts this chargers and are pleading innocent. Pavel Krivonosov, Dmitriy Kolesov and Oleg Gembaruk (Nizhniy Novgorod "RASH-Antifa" case ) are being charged with article 213 (hooliganism), 282.1 (participation in an extremist community), 115 (causing bodily harm) and 116 (assault). They are accused of having participated in an extremist community, ostensibly created for the attack on neo-nazis (or "skinheads, football fans," as the investigators have called them) to incite hatred against a social group of "bourgeois-backed Citizens."
