A political and personal statement as well as a review of our solidarity work around the war in Ukraine so far.

The following text is a very much shortened version of this text.
The long version you can find as well in Ukrainian, Russian and German language.

Since the first day of the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops, we have been working with friends on the ground as well as comrade from Belarus, Russia and Poland. This was made possible by thousands of donations from people around the world who understood the importance of international solidarity at this critical moment. And for this we would like to thank all those who responded to the calls and provided help, not only with money, but also with direct actions, logistics and media work.

Tyumen Case. Six anarchists and anti-fascists detained in Tyumen, Yekaterinburg and Surgut

A new criminal case against anarchists in Russia became known in September. Six people were arrested in three cities in the Urals and Western Siberia on charges of organizing and participating in a «terrorist organization». All of the detainees hold anarchist and anti-fascist views. To date, the defendants have not been charged with any attacks against the regime or preparation for them, but under Russian law alone, the accused face between 5 and 10 years in prison for participation in a «terrorist organization», and between 15 and 20 years or life in prison for organising or leading a «terrorist organization». Supporting the prisoners requires considerable resources, and the support group requests financial support and spreading the information about the case.

Solidarity fund for imprisoned and persecuted revolutionaries from Greece is calling for financial support

FIREFUND CAMPAIGN

The basic aim
of the structure is to ensure decent living conditions for the imprisoned comrades through a process that would take place within the political movement; thereby taking the material dimension of solidarity a step beyond close family, friendly and comrade relationships, as well as to help with the immediate coverage of emergencies (such as court expenses and bails for the persecuted). Yet, the actions of practical solidarity and the building and development of communication bridges and united struggles between those inside prisons and those outside of it, remain as priorities of the people who form and sustain the structure.

The fact that capitalism does not focus on our needs but on profit, is demonstrated with all its brutality in times of climate crisis, the Covid-19 pandemic and the collapse of socioeconomic systems all around the world. Those who profit from capitalism enrich themselves through times of disaster. But with ongoing crises we are also experiencing a new era of uprisings from below.
