Chronicle of repressions.
From St. Petersburg to Yekaterinburg activists are arrested, searched,
removed from trains and put into jail.
The summit of the "Big 8" planned not far from St. Petersburg is less
than a week away, as well as the events against the illegitimate "club
of 8" and its policies, the Russian Social Forum in particular. Judging
by the unfolding situation, the Russian structures of power have decided
to tackle the issue with force in the last week before the summit.
Information about arrests, court cases, imprisonments, searches and
removals from trains of activists of the Network Against G8 (SPB8) have
become everyday occurrence. In the course of those actions, the agents
of power structures the Ministry of Internal Affairs and it's
subdivision the FSB and the Prosecutor's Office are continuously
breaking both civil rights and legal norms. The courts pronounce harsh
sentences based solely on the testimonies of the security forces and
meant to isolate the activists until the end of the summit.
Based on the news available to the members of the LINK collective and
published on Russian Indymedia (russia.indymedia.org/ ), only on Monday
such cases have occurred in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Samara
