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.
