As part of an international Week of Action for Anarchists in Russia, RAM-NYC is hosting a deejay night and film screening benefit at June Bar on Friday, March 16th. While Putin gears up for elections on March 18th, the FSB (Federal Security Service) has been cracking down on anarchists and anti-fascists with raids and mass arrests in several cities. Many of those detained have been tortured with methods including electrocution. Come out to show solidarity with comrades facing repression in Russia!
From the call to action: “Today, hangmen and terrorists want to be “elected” for the new term. And all of us can see what this election is. Now we can draw public attention (Russian and international), limit the scope of terror today and postpone its beginning tomorrow. Only public pressure can hinder state terrorism. We are calling for action. Evenings of solidarity, street agitation, spread of information, performances or rallies, everything for what you have power and fantasy, everything that could draw attention to the lawlessness, everything won’t be in vain.
Putin’s new term is a prison term for every Russian.
