For my English-speaking friends

Yesterday in Belarus: searches in a biggest non-state media and in houses of journalists. 7 arrested, 3 of them detained. Official accusation: “An unauthorised acces to an information” from a state media-agency (LOL). Up to 2 years in prison.
 
Today in Belarus: search on a house of independent journalist Paulyuk Bykowski. Opposition activist Genadz Padalnicki forcibly put in Psychatric.
 
 

Some updates for my English-speaking friends

Shortly about how I survived the recent days.

As all of you know, at 30th of June an informal anarchist meeting in the woods near Krupki (Minsk region) was attacked by Belarusian SWAT and 17 of us spent 5-6 hours on a grass laying face down (some were also handcuffed) when heavy armed cops searched our personal belongings. You can read about it here.

ІДІЛ у Індыі/ISIS in India

[ENGLISH FOLLOWS]

Пахаванне аднаго з лідараў ІДІЛ у Індыі. Паглядзіце на людзей: што мусіла рабіць з імі дзяржава, каб ісламіст, галаварэз, стаў для іх героем, а ягоная смерць – трагедыяй?

Увогуле бачыцца што ІДІЛ, відавочна, робіцца найбольш разгалінаванай глабальнай радыкальнай альтэрнатывай сучаснаму светапарадку. Дастаткова паглядезць колькі высілкаў урады марнуюць на пошук і вынішчэння сяброў арганізацыі па ўсім свеце. Думаю (і я не арыгінальны ў гэтай думцы) што з тактычнай паразай ІДІЛ у Сірыі і Іраку яе сапраўдная гісторыя толькі пачынаецца.

Funerals of one of the ISIS leaders in India. Look at these people. What government shoud be doing there for tens of years to reach such a reslut: hundreds percieve the islamist as a hero, and his death, hence, as a tragedy.

In general, it looks like ISIS becomes the strongest and the most branched global(!) radical alternative to a modern world order, concerning how much efforts governments make to fight them. It means that their ideology is really demanded in a 3rd World countries. I think (and I am onot original with this thought) that with death or tactical defeat of ISIS in Syria\Iraq, its true story just begins.

Left are the enemies of the freedom

Left are the enemies of the freedom

At June, 14 the EP adopted a resolution in support of Oleg Sentsov, Alexandr Kolchenko (btw, our anarchist comrade), and other Ukrainians, illegaly detained in Russia as political prisoners. 76 members of EP voted against this resolution. Who are they? What a surprise! We see French National Front, Bulgarian Socialist Party, German Die Linke, Greek Syriza and Golden Dawn in a same boat!

Well, how spectacular is the fact that leftists and neofaschists have united in European parliament in their ardent love to Putin.

And how hypocratic they are! European left carry SO MUCH about gay righs in other countries, about children in Syria, about police violence in USA, but… Putin annexing other countries, torturing and killing Ukrainians in prisons – no problem with it. Let’s support him, why not.

Who of the European left rised their voice when TENS OF RUSSIAN ANARCHISTS were recenly tortured with electric teasers in order to trump up a fake terorist case (“The Network”)? Who said a single world? Noone! And now they are even try to prevent EP to say a words in a support of Sentsov, Kolchenko and other victims of Putin regime.

For those who still hesitates, it is a lesson, showing that the left are the enemies of freedom. Expecially I am sure that most of the Euproean left, since the time of Comintern, are directed by a KGB-FSB and act as a 5th column of USSR\Russia on the West. Hence, they can not be our allies. Long live anarchy and fuck all bosses, no matter how red they are. This is it.

Нацыяналізм ізноў/ Nationalism again

Пытанне нацыі і нацыяналізму, нягледзячы на паўсюдныя працэсы глабалізацыі па ранейшаму – адно з ключавых сацыяльных, палітычных і культурных пытанняў сучаснасці. Даць ацэнку гэтай з’яве, прааналізаваць яе і прымаць да ўвагі ў сваіх палітычных дзеяннях я лічу вельмі важным і неабходным для тых, хто марыць аб радыкальных пераменах.

Каля году таму я выказаў сваю пазіцыю адносна беларускага нацыяналізму. Не так даўно чэскія таварышы пераклалі яе і апублікавалі ў анархісцкім часопісе Existence. Дзякуй ім за гэта 🙂

The issue of nation and nationalism, despite overwhelming globalization process is still one of the key social, political and cultural questions of present time. Assessing and analyzing this issue and taking it into consideration during the political activity is, on my opinion, very important for those who dream about radical changes.

About a year ago I have outspoken my position regarding Belarusian nationalism. A few time ago Czhech comrades translated it and published in a anarchist magazine “Existence”. Thank them! 🙂

The original article is here (English, Russian): https://mikola.noblogs.org/?p=1269

Вы не поверите, но это обычный столб в городе Прага, Республика Чехия. Пройти мимо я не смог. Как только это непотребство попалось мне на глаза, НЕМЕДЛЕННО последовала дерзкая акция прямого действия против российского присутствия.

Prague, Czech Reupublic. Fierce and radical direct action against Russian presence.

This is the article need to be read by all Europeans

Around a year ago, travelling to Warsaw I have meet a guy from Finland, whos parents are Russian-speakers. A European citizen, loving Putin. complaining about “rusophobia” and being happy about Crimea “taken back”. Such a contingent is widespread in Czheh republic, Bulgaria, Latvia, Greece and even further to the West. It is a stalinism of 21st century.

Russian threat must not be underestimated, and it is good that EU started a campaign against Russian hybrid aggression, though this campaign should have been started at least 4 years ago.

Ваісціну гасударцтва для народа!/ That’s how “State for the people” looks like

[ENGLISH FOLLOWS]

Трэба мне былі дадзеныя для даследвання па прадмеце Applied econometrics. Узяў ды і зайшоў на ФБ-старонку Нацыянальнага статыстычнага камітэту, і проста так запытаўся ці есць у іх гэтыя дадзеныя і калі няма – то дзе можна ўзяць. Уяўляеце, якая наіўнасць развіваецца ў чалавека пасля 2+ гадоў жыцця ў еўропке? 8 сакавіка адправіў паведамленне. 12 сакавіка яго прачыталі. Сення 18 кастрычніка – адказу няма дагэтуль.

Пытанні “хіба цяжка хаця б нешта адказаць”, “навошта было ўвогуле старонку завадзіць”, “а як жа маё канстытуцыйнае права на інфармацыю ад дзяржворганаў”, “за што тады ім падаткі плацяць” – бессэнсоўна лётаюць у паветры. Ізноў прыходзіць даўно зразумелае – ты размаўляеш не з чалавекам, а з машынай, чыё імя – дзаржава. Гэта Беларусь, дзетка!

That’s how “State for the people” looks like

Once upon a time I was in need of some statistical info for my research on subject “Applied econometrics”. I have visited the FB-page of National statistical committee (a state institution) and just asked them, do they have such a data. And if not, where can I get it. You see, how naive people are becoming after 2+ years of living in Europe!
March, 8 – the message was sent. March 12th – they read it. It is 18th of April today – still no answer.

Such questions are “is t hard to answer at least something”, “why they need such a page, in this case”, “what about my constitutional rights for getting th info from state institutions”, “what are they receive taxes for” – are somewhere in the air, but totally useless. Actually, you speak to a machine, which is state, not to a human being. That’s Belarus, my dear!
