On Saturday the 22nd of August a presentation was held at the Anarchist Bookfair in Stockholm about the movement in Czech Republic, ‘Operation Fénix’, it’s blow against activists and information from the Antifénix project. There was also benefit table where people could read more information and take it home. There where zines, t-shirts and even some delicious cake that was all for free or donations. We want to say Thanks to everyone who came to listen, ask, learn, read and offer support.
On Tuesday the 25th there was a small demonstration in solidarity with the detainees and against the whole ‘Operation Fénix’. It was so nice that many people could come on such a short notice. There was a speech through a megaphone about the Fénix and we shouted some slogans in Czech language. After a while, someone from the embassy came out and asked why we where there and why would we care about political prisoners there and not somewhere else? They where bothered that we where blocking their entrance but after a while, there weren’t many people coming there anyway so we left after about an hour. We want to send a greeting to our comrades that where robbed of their freedom; ‘You are not alone and We didn’t forget about you!’
The same evening, another solidarity demonstration was held outside of the Russian embassy because of the newly sentenced Crimeans. Among them an anarchist and a film-maker.
