Solidarity is needed

Please help to get Alexey Sutuga out of prison on bail!


Autonomous Action member, anarchist Alexey Sutuga, has been on remand for more than a year. The police have intentionally delayed the investigation: they only worked on the case for the first 2-3 months after his arrest but since then the investigation has stalled. Formally, Alexey is accused according to statute on "hooliganism" of the Russian criminal code, of having taken part in a fight during an anti-fascist concert. But officers of "E-center" (Center of Counteraction against Extremism) are open with the fact that their goal is to imprison Alexey as an active participator in the anti-fascist movement. Alexey has spent more than a year in jail without any kind of due process.

As for the good news, both Sutuga and Alexey Olesinov have been cleared of the most serious charge ("Serious bodily harm intentionally caused by a group of people", statute 111 of the Russian criminal code"), but 3 less serious charges remain.

At the beginning of July there will be a new court hearing on the arrest of Sutuga. His parents want to appeal for him to be released on bail. But in the Russian system, bail must be raised in advance, so we are attempting to raise a million rubles (€25,000), or at least half a million (€12,500) in order to have a chances for Alexey to be admitted out on bail.

You may use the accounts and paypal of ABC-Moscow for transferring money for his bail. Check http://wiki.avtonom.org/en/index.php/Donate for details. But please also write to abc-msk at riseup dot net and sutu6000 at gmail dot ru on how to have the bail money back after it has been returned!
