Specifically, we join the action days of solidarity with Belarusian political prisoners in the day on June 30 to July 2, most notably with fellow anarchists who were arrested in fall 2010 and sentenced to spend 3 to 8 years in prison in May 2011 by a series of attacks on symbols of state and capital.In October 2011,wererecognizedtheir status aspoliticalprisonerswith the support ofcivilrights organizations, but even when since August2011haveremitted the penalties to30political prisoners, didn´t occur with any of the anarchist political prisoners, because of refuse to accept his guilt and apologize to President Alexander Lukashenko, who in retaliation refused the amnesty.
