Extremisim in Belarus

#radixint

Belarusian authoritarian state have found a brand new instrument to fight dissidents: label all of them “extremists”. Since last years, the repressive apparatus of Lukashenko developed sophisticated legislature and media discourse aiming to prove that everyone who criticizes the state in a radical way are “extremists” and almost terrorists. Specific efforts are put in criminalizing anarchists.

Recently I have dubbed in English my video “extremism in Belarus”, which reveals the abovementioned process.

Does it work the same way in your country?

Police shows up on a feminist festival in St.Petersburg. Reason – a complaint, filed by “anti-gay activist”. Russian authority is so eager to preserve “morality” and “traditional values” that even decriminalized home violence some time ago. So there is nothing surprising that feminism poses threat to them.

Feminists vs. Police in Petersburg

Anarchist Black Cross-Belarus calls for solidarity with imprisoned anarchist Nikita Yemelyanov.

You can either transfer money in support of the activist, or perform a solidarity action.

More detailed info here.

Look how much resources (e.g. money, vehicles, human resources) does US authority spend on not letting people from the neighbor countries get into US. The degree of a violence, allowed to private structures to perform during this “mission” is also impressive.

In US poverty line income is 38 000 usd a year. That’s it for today. *crying in Belarusian*

«ISIS’s insurgency will grow because areas it has lost in Iraq and Syria are still neither stable nor secure»

As I was stressing numerous times, all statements of both Russian military and Trump about the defeat of ISIS is nothing but lies and propaganda. Until the social preconditions of the ISIS insurgency will not be eliminated, the ISIS guerilla activity will increase. It is enough to know that the Islamic state alone (not considering other Jihadist groups) has as many as 30 000 fighters in Iraq and Syria by now. Read the short report regarding the topic.

 

Moscow protests and us

Thanks to comrade from the blog THE RUSSIAN READER for translating my text regarding the Moscow protests. Shortly: here is what we should learn from them for the future revolt in Belarus.

 

Mikola Dziadok: What We Can Learn from the Moscow Protests

Texas mass shooting

It is so symbolic that the mass shooting in El Paso, performed by the ultra-right, literally coincided with an attempt of Trump to declare Antifa a terrorist organization.

I have already mentioned about the case of Brett Kavanaugh, the US federal judge accused in sexual harassment, occurred 30 years ago.

Found out a video, describing the full story. The video is 3 HOURS LONG, but I watched it all and did not regret. See the absolute devaluation of the presumption of innocence, the peak identity politics (you are guilty just because you are !!!white male!!!) and how the false rape accusations are becoming the ultimate 21-century tool of the political struggle.
