Prague, Czech Rebublic: Police repressions, anarchists are charged with preparation of terrorist acts.

No repression can stop a longing for freedom!

With ‘Operation Fenix’ came the biggest wave of police repressions against the anarchist and radical left movement in the recent czech history.

Taking people early in the morning hours, accusations of preparation of terrorist acts and confiscation of a server, which held several activists’ sites, all came with ‘Operation Fenix’ which started on Tuesday, 28th of April. Anti-extremist police is actively trying to frighten the anarchist and anti-authoritarian left scene and collecting information in a fishing expedition.

This is our distress call for international solidarity. Police put out an informational embargo on the operation, although some details have leaked to the media.

Today, on Thursday, the 7th of May, there are still three people in police custody. Three more have been charged with planning terrorist acts and other serious crimes.

Police tactics will not be successful. We will not let ourselves get frightened, we will continue with our political practice.

If you wish to help us, we will gladly accept any political or financial solidarity.

How to help?
In situations where the entire anarchist/radical left scene is facing systematic repressions on many frontiers, any help with softening the blows is more than welcome. We do not want to organize a centralized solidarity campaign, we know from experience in other countries, that the most successful campaigns were decentralized, creative and diverse. We hope to build a campaign transcending borders and coming from all directions.

Here are some suggestions, but of course, there is a myriad of possibilities and creativity is welcome and encouraged.

Information and the press:
Spread information about operation Fenix, share articles with new information on your social media accounts, inform about the situation on your blog… We ask you to use #antifenix as a way to unite the campaign.

Political solidarity:

We hope to use a diverse spectrum of political pressure put on the Czech government to stop the persecution of the anarchist/radical left scene and push to release all political prisoners. We plan to organize a day of solidarity demos for the arrested in operation Fenix. More info coming soon.

Financial solidarity:
Lawyers and law aid are a big expense, we are grateful for any beneficial event you may organize or any other financial support.

Brutale attacco contro il movimento anarchico in Repubblica Ceca

Nel corso delle ultime due settimane lo Stato ceco ha lanciato un massiccio attacco al movimento anarchico con il nome di Operazione Phoenix. Decine di persone sono state arrestate con l’accusa di terrorismo e crimini d’odio; appartamenti, squat e centri sociali sono stati attaccati o sfrattati con velocità e brutalità allarmanti (con ordinanze del tribunale che normalmente vorrebbero anni per essere elaborate e ora timbrate da un giorno all’altro e con tanto di cannoni ad acqua ben distribuiti); mentre alla Federazione Anarchica, alla Croce Nera Anarchica (supporto prigionieri) e a molti altri gruppi radicali sono stati confiscati i loro server.

Questi attacchi brutali sono stati autorizzati pervia dell’efficienza e l’efficacia del movimento anarchico negli ultimi anni, con la rete di solidarietà locale che cresce di numero e quindi in grado di mirare a obiettivi sempre più grandi, i centri sociali hanno fornito lo spazio per la condivisione di esperienze e idee e intanto costruendo anche la solidarietà alla classe operaia.

La Croce Nera Anarchica Bielorussa ha messo le informazioni (qui e qui), mentre la CNA Ceca sta raccogliendo fondi per il supporto legale e si può contattare all’indirizzo abc-cz@riseup.net.

Solidarietà con i/le nostr* amic* e compagn*, e se non si può fare altro allora cercate diffondere notizie sull’accaduto.

Brutal attack on anarchist movement in the Czech Republic

From: Glasgow AF

Over the past two weeks the Czech state has launched a massive attack on the anarchist movement under the name Operation Phoenix. Dozens of people have been arrested on terrorism and hate crime charges; flats, squats and social centres are being raided/evicted with alarming speed and brutality (with court orders that would normally take years to process being rubber-stamped overnight and water canons getting deployed); while the Anarchist Federation, the Anarchist Black Cross (prisoner support), and several other radical groups have had their servers taken.
These brutal attacks have been authorised due to the efficiency and effectiveness of the anarchist movement in recent years, with the local solidarity network growing in numbers and so being able to take on bigger and bigger targets, while social centres have provided the space for sharing of experience and ideas while building working class solidarity.

The Belarus ABC have been putting up info as they have it (here and here), while the ABC-Czech is collecting money for the legal support and can be contacted at abc-cz@riseup.net.

Solidarity with our friends and comrades, and if you can’t do anything else then considerer spreading news of this.
