Nazis kill anarchist in Siberia

London solidarity vigil 7pm Thursday 26th July - Details

Ulger, (Ilya), an anarchist from Vladivostok, died this night in hospital. He has been killed during a Nazi’s assault to an Eko camp in Angarsk (Siberia).

The call of the camp was made by Baikal Ecological Wave - an ecologist libertarian association - and Autonomous Action of Irkutsk.

No doubt more news will follow. We also believe a number of comrades have been very seriously injured.

About the camp

Last weekend ecological protest camp against planned international center for enrichment of uranium was launched in Angarsk of Siberia. First reaction of authorities was to illegally detain 10 persons 14th of July, but everyone was released after few hours, after being threatened and their fingerprints taken.

Currently campers are establishing contacts with local people and building camp. In end of this week, daily pickets to distribute information about problem will start in the city. Already for two days various security services have been harrassing and threatening campers, curious to learn if campers plan any disorders.

RKUTSK, July 21 (RIA Novosti)) - One person was killed and at least seven were injured in an attack on an environmentalist camp in the Irkutsk Region in southeastern Siberia early Saturday, a local police source said.

Police said at least 15 assailants raided a tent camp at the Yelovskoye Reservoir near the city of Angarsk occupied by a group of protesters against reprocessing of nuclear waste at a local plant.

"The attack on a tent camp occurred at 5.10 am Moscow time (1.10 am GMT) Saturday. At least 15 attackers raided the camp occupied by 21 environmentalists," the source said.

"A 21-year-old man was killed and seven people were hospitalized with injuries," he said.

Police said they have detained two suspects in the assault and identified at least 13 others.

A criminal investigation has been launched in connection with the attack.

Rainbow Keepers and Autonomous Action organise one or two protest camps usually every summer in different parts of Russia, often with success, and have been doing so since like way back to 1990 or 1991.

The statement from the camp on siberia-imc says the local police told them not to talk to the press and denied any fascist presence in the area.

Quote:
On 21st of July dawn at 5 am our sleeping camp was brutally attacked. Some scumbags suddenly tumbled down our tents, burned down and stole our things, beat us sleeping in our tents with bats, hammers, cudgels, legs. The same time they were spitefully swearing at Antifa. The terrible and considered cruelty of their attack makes not doubt that it was not a work of some ordinary hooligans, but a thought over action of nazis. It is necessary to note a long (more than half an hour) absence of the police at a place of the crime, and the subsequent attempts of the police to deny an existence of nazi groupings in Angarsk, and pressing requests of the representatives of the police and the Office of Public Prosecutor to participants of the camp not to make a scandal and to avoid any communication with journalists. But we can not be silent because an indignation and a desire of a retribution overflows us. Last night we have lost our comrade: Ilya Borodaenko, an anarchist, a member of the Autonomous Action from Nakhodka has died because of a craniocerebral trauma (incompatible with life) and violent beating. That night he and 2 other participants of the camp were on duty and Ilya was the first who faced nazi scum. Some our comrades were sent to the hospital in grave condition (with concussions of the brain and fractures of arms and legs). Our tents are cut and fired, flags are stolen.

However we will forget nothing and we won't forgive Ilya Borodaenko's death to his murderers (irrespective of successes or failures of the official repressive system investigating the crime). We won't stop activity of our environmental protest camp, we won't stop our struggle against fascist plague and nuclear mafia, against authoritative ideas and racist dregs, against all that destroys both the nature and human life and dignity. Today we grieve. Tomorrow we will continue our struggle.

Just received this email from Italian comrades, it contains a TV link:

Speakers says the attacked was "tourist" and that the motive was theft, but the comrade interviewed (Marina) try to say something about antifa slogans but we not understand esactly what she says.
Local police seems have identified 13 person involved in the assoult.

There's nothing Russian in Manchester. How about you London comrades get down to the Russian Embassy with flags and placards sometime this week?

i could; not sure why though? The nazis killed him.

perhap it would be better to have a memorial/vigil somewhere and send them the pictures and any money raised?

[brain slowly clunks into gear]
well we could do that at the embassy i spose; might be better to do it somewhere, i dunno better...? I'm not sure he'd have felt a great afinity with the embassy tbh. The only apprpriate thing i can think of is the international brigade memorial i was at yesterday or the mural at cable street.

Here's a little more translation:
Report says attackers were armed with baseball bats, iron bars and petrol bombs. Marina is saying that the nazis were shouting 'antifa. ha, ha' as they attacked. The doctor is saying that there are 7 in hospital, 5 in serious condition. No mention of protest or it being a nuclear fuel processing facility.

Another video from NTV ('Independent TV') - more footage of the camp itself: http://news.ntv.ru/113617/video

There are some more additions to the Indymedia UK top feature: http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2007/07/376699.html

Just to correct Ilya's nickname is Ugler (not Ulger).

Problem with the Russian embassy is it's on the same private road as the Israeli one, so unless there was mass of people you'd end up being moved to Kensington High Street or Notting Hill Gate, well out of sight and sound of the embassy. And there are of course other options.

True true, but he and his comrades were protesting what seems to be a pet project of Putin's, so the Embassy would make perfect sense. Nothing Russian that I know of in Atlanta either, wish i could be with y'all.

I'd agree with this.

Whereever it ends up happening, it's important to have some kind of vigil or tribute to him, as a gesture of solidarity to those who survived the attack and those left behind if nothing else.

What a shame.

Is this how the Russian Nazis prepare for their beloved coming race war by attacking sleeping people, what a bunch of utter cu*ts.

i repeat: are london libcommers going to come to this if its outside of work hours on a week night?

I'm still talking it over but it think the embassy, and have it as an evening vigil. Absolutely notjing is going to be done about this i'm afraid, so awareness raising is not really a priority. Handing out a few leaflets outside somehting vaguely russian is pissing in the wind. I'm in favour of having a well attended and documented vigil with a decent banner and tribute.

Winjer: i know about the israeli embassy and the RBCC issues. The Russian embassy itself is quite a way down from the Israeli one; its should be ok to have shortish demo. If the police move us on after 15 mins to a half hour, fine. I don't think they'd stop us holding a quiet vigil, though i appreciate its never for sure what they'll do.

The RBCC is a flat no!

Thats how it goes in Eastern Front. There had been few of my personal friends/comrades at this camp and I still dont know what is exactly their situation. Vigil/demo is good idea, especially that among all of this it shouldnt be forgotten that they were there to protest against nuclear industry in this city. Another way of expressing solidarity is kicking they shit out of some nazis- that what we gonna do here for next few days, because its all part of same shit. Instead of minute of silence- all life in struggle..

Tacks - i'd usually be up for it but already doing stuff tonight and tomorrow night then away weds-sun. balls. this is crazy. sad

another option to hold a vigil would maybe be the international brigade monument in Jubilee Gardens, London SE1. it's on the south bank. lots of folk are milling around that area most of the time.

yeah i thought of that (i actuyally mant to put it in my post) but i think the embassy would be just slightly better, a little more connected... Dunno, its the done thing.

i'll probably have a callout done by tonight - but i think 7pm Thursday at the embassy?
