The 38-year-old associate professor of political science was accused of participating in 
riots and assaulting six policemen at the protest on the eve of the inauguration of 
President Vladimir Putin in May 2012. The demonstration was one of a series of large 
protests unleashed mainly because of the anger at the evidence of electoral fraud and the 
consternation before the decision of Putin to return to the presidency after a period of 
four years as prime minister. More than 30 people were prosecuted in connection with the 
protests, and more than 20 were sentenced to prison or served a term of imprisonment. One 
of the protesters was admitted to a psychiatric hospital. ---- Buchenkov says he did not 
participate in the protest, since that day, May 6, 2012, was happening with his parents in 
Nizhny Novgorod: about 400 kilometers from Moscow. This was confirmed by the road-control 
system, which registered Buchenkov's car traveling to Nizhny Novgorod on May 5: the day 
before the protest, and then returning to Moscow on May 8: two days after the protest. 
However, the court decided to ignore this evidence and approved an arrest warrant.

Dmitry was arrested on December 2, 2015 and the next day he was sent to the "Vodnik" 
SIZO-5 prison in Moscow, where he remained for 15 months. While in custody, Dmitry 
Buchenkov was subjected to a special regime: a camera was installed in his cell, he was 
denied visits from friends and family, as well as communications with other prisoners. 
During his imprisonment in prison, he was only allowed to make two phone calls.

In March 2017, he was transferred to house arrest, from which he fled in November 2017. 
This was possible because he was not controlled with an electronic monitoring bracelet due 
to lack of resources. Later, the district court requested the arrest of Buchenkov.

Shortly after his escape, Dmitry Buchenkov confirmed that he had applied for asylum in one 
of the EU countries, but did not disclose which one. Now it is confirmed that last Monday 
Lithuania granted it.

In November 2017, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that the Russian authorities 
violated Article 5, Part 3 and 4 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and 
Fundamental Freedoms with regard to Buchenkov, guaranteeing a trial within a period of 
time reasonable and without delay the court's consideration of the legality of his 
detention. He received 2,600 euros in compensation.

Anti-repression demonstration in Moscow

Avtonom | Wild instinct

On June 10 in Moscow on Sakharov Avenue was a demonstration "For a free Russia, without 
repression and arbitrariness", in which, according to the organizers, about 3 thousand 
people participated. The anarchists of Moscow came to the action with portraits of the 
defendants of the case "REDES", as well as with the Crimean anarchists Alexander Kolchenko 
and Yevgeny Karakashev and the anarchist of Nizhny Novgorod Ilya Romanov. The Belarusian 
guests brought a banner in support of the Belarusian political prisoner Dmitry Polienko.

When they were not far from the entrance of the event, the members of the anarchist bloc 
were ready to go to the meeting place, a group of activists of the Left Bloc and the 
Russian Socialist Movement were side by side. Singing the slogans of the freedom of the 
political prisoners, all arrived at the demonstration, where for a time they remained as a 
common "block".

Among the speakers at the rally was an anarchist and former political prisoner Alexei 
Sutuga, as well as Svetlana Pchelintseva, the mother of one of the defendants in the 
"REDES" case.

Speech by Alexei Sutugi

"They asked me to talk about the" Penza case ". Eight people from St. Petersburg and Penza 
read Kropotkin and play airsoft. They are in jail, they were tortured and accused of 
terrorism.

Why does the FSB act in this way? In all ages, the ability to possess weapons 
distinguishes freemen. And now there are moments like this, that even with the plastic 
models, the FSB sees a danger. The FSB fears that free people can defend themselves.

Nobody banned anarchism in Russia. Kropotkin books are sold in stores. In honor of 
Kropotkin, not far from here is called a subway station. In Russia there are anarchist 
sites, publications, cooperatives. The anarchists publish books, participate in social 
protests. They have many projects.

In Russia you can play airsoft. There are hundreds of airsoft, patriotic or apolitical 
clubs. But together, anarchism and airsoft is neither safe nor legal, as it turned out, 
this leads to prison.

People from different points of view came to this meeting. For example, nationalists and 
Stalinists, who are extremely unpleasant for us. But the political struggle in Russia can 
not be done by the hands of the police. If they can fabricate a case against the Nazis, 
they can also do so against the anarchists. If an anarchist can be imprisoned, the liberal 
is under threat.

Breaking the horns of a police state is a common goal for everyone. Without this, the 
development of Russia is not possible. "They do not give us the rights, they must be 
taken!" Kropotkin said. "

Compulsors of OZZ Employee Initiative ---- The Employee Initiative was supported by 
cleaners from a Poznan university (hired by a subcontractor) whose employee rights were 
trodden in a similar way to security guards at the Women's Congress. At the meetings with 
the university authorities, we heard that these ladies do not belong to the university 
community, because they are not connected to it by any formal relationship (they are not 
directly employed by the university). Similarly, the organizers of the Congress of Women 
describe their relationship with security workers. ---- It is evident that the Congress' 
technical service workers are not part of the community of women with whom the heads of 
the Congress of Women would like to act and identify. Their community consists mainly of 
women from economic and intellectual salons: chiefs, professors, and politicians. 
Cleaners, waitresses, and bodyguards are a different social class that they really do not 
have and do not want to have anything in common, which they do not understand, and the 
fleeting interest in her problems is façade.The lack of understanding between the two 
groups is evidenced by M. Sroda's reply to the text by M. Swietlik, as well as the 
canalization of the discussion on labor rights to the so-called "Social Center", while 
strategic discussions about economy and politics took place somewhere else (in the shadow 
office). For Sroda, the work put in KK is the next step at the career level, strengthening 
its good position in the social hierarchy and the way to self-fulfillment. For a 
bodyguard, a 16-hour change at a starvation rate in unbearable conditions, taken on the 
verge of exhaustion[as physical as mental]is a necessity to have a living for, an economic 
compulsion. It is not the bodyguards that are responsible for the conditions of their work.

Kapitalistyczna gospodarka opiera sie na wyzysku kobiet - najczesciej nieformalnym - bo 
opartym na darmowej i niskoplatnej pracy, z czego korzystaja gospodarcze elity. Szefowe z 
Kongresu Kobiet po raz kolejny potwierdzaja, ze nimi wlasnie sa.

KK bosses explain the exploitation of the technical service with organizational 
requirements and the lack of funds. The journalist supporting the Congress managed to even 
bring the problem of the bodyguards' accusation to underfunding the NGO sector. The 
solution would be to redirect an even bigger cash to the pockets of Henryka Bochniarz, 
Magdalena Sroda or Dorota Warakomska. At the same time, there is a high probability that 
the working conditions of the worst beneficiaries serving KK would not improve. This also 
applies to panellists and numerous volunteers taking part in the organization of the 
event. However, it is something else to participate in KK as an activist, and what is 
more, mercenary work carried out on behalf of KK.

KK organizers introduce a clear division of labor and the privileges available to them[vip 
space], expressing contempt for technical workers.   This means that the establishment of 
the "Social Center" within the CC, panels on the precarious condition of employees are 
purely image-related activities. They do not translate into the actual practices of 
Congress and the division of labor based on exploitation, which KK upholds and presents as 
natural and necessary. As a consequence of this division, the majority of women are 
drudging under inhumane conditions so that a few could achieve political success. As a 
reminder, the real purpose of KK is not to abolish exploitation and quota as well as to 
increase the access of privileged women to the "male" political sphere.

Volunteers and security guards employed for starvation rates are not working for the 
actual equality, but for the success of organizers of the Congress and fulfillment of 
their political ambitions. KK does not represent all women. Usually, those who proclaim 
that they represent everyone above class divisions actually push the interests of the 
privileged class. The composition of the KK shadow cabinet, presented on the KK website, 
indicates that the minister of employment would be a person who previously held the 
position of a director for strategic development at the Polish Confederation of Private 
Employers Lewiatan. This would suggest that KK is of the opinion that employers will best 
represent the interests of employees.

My stoimy na stanowisku, ze jesli dolne warstwy spoleczne maja dokonac emancypacji, to 
potrzebuja ruchu kobiecego nie zacierajacego podzialów klasowych.

The myth of supra-class unity serves to cover up their position and cool down potential 
outbursts of dissatisfaction. In the case of Congress, it is difficult to abstract from 
the conflicting interests of different social classes. You can not represent both 
employers and employees, owners and tenants, privileged elites and the majority of female 
employees. Conflict of interest is inevitable. This is due to the experiences of the labor 
movement, tenants - that is, women co-creating the Social Congress of Women, which took 
place in March this year. in Poznan. SKK is created by force, determination of women 
involved in the workers 'and tenants' movement. Employees of crèches, public institutions, 
logistic warehouses and other workplaces as well as tenants of municipal and private 
dwellings spoke on it. There was no doubt for them that the Congress of Women does not 
represent their interests. It has been articulated by them indirectly.

We hope that at the next Social Congress of Women (will be held in Poznan in autumn), the 
voice will be taken by the bodyguards, who, together with other women, will discuss how to 
fight exploitation.

Social organizations, democratic magisterium and inhabitants of different Chiapas 
communities burned several electoral stations during the elections of June 7, 2015 at the 
city of Ocosingo. ---- Since the beginning of April of this year, 23 indigenous regions of 
the Selva Lacandona in the municipality of Ocosingo, Chiapas, announced publicy in 
demonstrations and through a recent communiqué dated on June, "ELECTIONS WILL NOT BE 
ALLOWED IN OUR REGIONS AND WE PLANT RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE STATE AUTHORITIES FOR 
EVERYTHING THAT WILL HAPPEN IN OUR MUNICIPALITY", as a democratic response to the 
obstacles and mockeries that the state government of Chiapas has committed to its demands 
for the creation of electric power projects, the implementation of potable water and 
compliance with the human right to basic services, which, being scarce or simply lacking 
in the municipality as a whole, makes these regions one of the most precarious regions of 
the state and the country.

In the mentioned statement, it is narrated that the community movement had a ‘working 
reunion' with delegates and relevant officials of the government of Ocosingo on June 5th, 
in which the approval of "favorable responses" for 6 electric power projects was signed. 
However, on June 7th, which was the agreed date to make official the projects, no 
personnel attended, "mocking us as indigenous peoples and communities." Immediately, a 
telephone call was made to ask the reason why no official attended, to which they 
responded "if we want, we're able to measure forces to see who is who", which is 
interpreted openly as a repressive threat against this movement.

Failing to receive a favorable response from the three levels of government in the 24-hour 
extension given by the communities, they affirm that it was a serious mistake to continue 
the discrimination and abandonment gap they have historically suffered and describe their 
resolution to boycott the elections as "a fuse lit for July 1st, 2018´´.
***
With these 23 regions of the Selva Lacandona, the map of towns in search of their 
self-determination increases considerably in Chiapas territory, having at the same time 
the municipalities of Oxhuc, Sitala, Chilón and Tila that have won their respective legal 
battles to be self-governed by uses and customs in order to strengthen the pluricultural 
nature of the native peoples who reside there; to the city of San Cristóbal de Las Casas 
that began an exercise of citizen participation since October 2017 with the Citizen 
Council for a Good Government that managed to apply for the Mtro. Esteban Morales as an 
independent municipal candidate, who is already in the 3rd place of electoral preferences 
and could represent a new expression of urban self-government without the need for a 
"state of conflict"; and of course, adding to all the Rebel Autonomous Zapatistas 
Municipalities (MAREZ) of the EZLN that have been exercising their political autonomy and 
economic self-management for more than 15 years.

FROM THE SOUTHEAST STATE OF CHIAPAS 23 REGIONS OF THE ZONE SELVA LACANDONA, OCOSINGO, CHIAPAS.

To the National Commission of Human Rights:

To the State Commission of Human Rights:

To the national and international media:

To the Human Rights Defenders Organizations:

To popular, democratic and independent organizations:

To the people in general:

We have always privileged the path of dialogue, respect, however, until now we have only 
found discrimination and neglect on the part of the three organs of government.

As 23 regions of the Selva Lacandona Ocosingo, Chiapas, through dialogue and consultation, 
we have made progress in some areas of roads etc.

On June 5th, 2018, we had a working meeting with Ing. Baldemar Navarro Guillen -Delegate 
of the Government of Ocosingo-, Mr. Marco Antonio Morales Liévano -Director of Social 
Organizations of the General Secretary of Government- in the city of Ocosingo, Chiapas. At 
this meeting, the needs of 6 electric lighting projects for 6 communities were raised, 
they were formally left that by today, June 7th, 2018, favorable responses would be 
brought for said projects, which is reflected in a minute of job.

In which we as 23 regions go to said place agreed for the meeting, nevertheless; no 
government personnel deigned to attend, mocking us as indigenous peoples and communities. 
We did a telephonecall  to Mario Carlos Culebro asking what was the reason for not 
complying with the agreement to give us answers. His response was in a threatening tone 
telling us that "if we want we can measure forces and see who is who".

In that sense, we do not want to create a SOCIAL DESTABILIZATION IN THESE TIMES, WE KNOW 
THAT WE ARE IN ELECTORAL TIMES WHERE WE WILL CHOOSE OUR MUNICIPAL, STATE AND FEDERAL 
AUTHORITIES, BUT DUE TO THIS PREPOTENCE TO TREAT US WITHOUT ANY RIGHT, WE ARRIVE TO THIS 
AGREEMENT: ELECTIONS WILL NOT BE PERMITTED IN OUR REGIONS AND WE PUT RESPONSIBILITIES TO 
STATE AUTHORITIES FOR ALL THAT WILL HAPPEN IN OUR MUNICIPALITY.

IF IN 24 HOURS WE DO NOT HAVE ANSWERS TO WHAT IS EXPOSED, THIS WILL BE A FUSE LIT FOR JULY 
1, 2018.

"Damn those who with words defend the people, but with their deeds they betray it".

Sincerely: 23 Regions of the Selva Lacandona Zone, Ocosingo, Chiapas.

We welcome any moves towards gender equality as witness the recent decision to allow 
Iranian women to attend football matches and Saudi women to drive cars. However, to regard 
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the autocratic Saudi leader, as some sort of champion of 
feminism would be a big mistake. ---- Those activists who campaigned against the driving 
ban - Loujain al-Hathloul, Eman al-Nafjan, and Aziza al-Yousef- are still in prison whilst 
a further 17 women's rights activists were arrested this month on suspicion of undermining 
security and are still detained. ---- Secondly, the move to grant women the right to drive 
was driven by economic reasons, not progressive ones. Up to $390 billion could be added to 
the Gross Domestic Product of the country by opening a jobs market for women, pushing up 
the size of the workforce and raising output and incomes. The Saudi regime plans on 
raising the number of women in the workforce from 22% to 30%. Already companies like Uber 
and Careem are looking to recruit women drivers in Saudi Arabia.

In addition, international pressure about the ban has exerted its influence on the regime.

But just like in Iran, women still cannot travel or work without permission from their 
male relatives under the guardianship system.

Beyond this, we have to question an individualised car culture which threatens the planet 
and appears to be an integral part of modern capitalism. Any future society must look 
towards an end to that culture and the massive development of environmentally friendly 
socialised public transport.

Meanwhile in Iran, whilst women were let into a stadium in Teheran to watch the World Cup 
match between Iran and Spain, this was only after a protest outside by both female and 
male football supporters. The official ban is still in place. Equally, the struggle 
against the hijab head covering continues. First signs of this were in the late 2017 
revolt when a young woman, Vida Movahed, removed her hijab in public to protest against 
the modesty law. She has since been arrested. A month after Vida took action, another 
woman, Narges Hosseini, did a similar action in the same place on January 29th and was 
also arrested. In a show of solidarity Iranian women filmed themselves in public places 
taking off their hijab and then spreading this on social media, which then became viral. 
The authorities have since arrested 29 women. One woman wrote on Instagram:

"I live in Shiraz. I went to the most crowded street in my city and stayed there for 10 or 
15 minutes. I felt stressed at first, but then I gained confidence. Many people gathered 
around me; they were taking photos and videos,and encouraging me. No one insulted me or 
criticized me. Everyone was very supportive. After 10 or 15 minutes, a police car arrived. 
When they opened the car doors, people started telling me to run. I jumped down and ran away."

The struggle against the morality police who enforce the repressive clothing laws against 
women continues. We long for the day when they and their master the theocratic Iranian 
state are swept away by mass action, just as the Shah was in 1979.

With a single day of strike at Carrefour, the unions got peasants. After several weeks of 
strike, employees of the Catacombs of Paris garnered a real victory. Win ? Yes it is still 
possible, at this price. In Normandy, the hospitaliers were unfortunately obliged to add 
the hunger strike to obtain satisfaction. ---- Fear must change sides ---- At the level of 
the company, any trade unionist knows, nothing serious can be ripped from the boss as long 
as he does not fear a production stoppage. As soon as he is no longer afraid of a strike, 
a blockage, a sabotage, he does not give in to anything. And it's the same at the national 
level. Isolated action days, even massive as in 2010 for pensions, do not win. 50 years 
after the general strike of May 68, the great fear of the capitalists has fallen and they 
strike more and more strongly to break our gains and our public services. Since 1983, the 
offensive of the bosses and the State, that it is managed by the "right" or the "left", 
rises in power. Every retreat of workers is an encouragement to go further and faster.

The sustainable strike
Even liberal economists easily quantify these successes of the employers' offensive: the 
rich are always richer and the poor always more numerous. After 35 years of defeat, the 
destruction of thousands of businesses and millions of jobs, workers are reluctant to 
embark because they feel the level of combat needed for a victory. But there is no other 
way. It is obvious that only a general renewable strike could turn the tide. And if saying 
it is not enough to build it, silence would lie. Unions should speak unequivocally to 
prepare minds for the sacrifices of true confrontation. No victory without suffering: it 
is hard but it is the reality of the class struggle.

The example of the SNCF
It naturally falls to the employees concerned to determine their mode of action. And we 
will not try to lecture comrades who courageously total more than a month of strikes this 
spring. Nevertheless, we who have always questioned the calendar of dotted strike, we ask 
the question: even if you lose a month's salary, would it not have been more efficient to 
embark on a renewable strike?? A completely different dynamic, internally as for other 
professional sectors, was possible. The management (and the users) are suffering but have 
finally adapted. The three-month timetable has also been of interest to the GAs where the 
railroads are scarce since there is nothing to discuss about the consequences of the 
action. Obviously even at the SNCF there will be no success without prolonged paralysis of 
the company.

See you at Medef !

Every year, at the end of August, the Medef holds its Summer University in Yvelines. Every 
year a small gathering is held there. For a good social comeback, so that the fear changes 
camp really, block the bosses and ministers who will prepare there their next attacks 
against the workers.
