Gomel, Belarus: Anarchists attack the Ministry of Taxation with Molotov Cocktails

Received on 27.03.17:

We, the partisan-anarchists, take responsibility for the symbolic attack
on March 24, 2017 on the building of the Inspectorate of the Ministry of
Taxes of the Republic of Belarus for the Gomel region.
We threw two Molotov cocktails into the window one of cabinet. At the
time of the attack hundreds of thousands of people were spiritually with
us throughout the country and beyond. This energy gave us great strength
and right.

Let’s note that it was not principally for us to attack specifically
this building. Any other inspection would also suit: regional, city,
district – it does not matter. Each of them deserved the people’s
revenge. The tax authorities regularly called and sent out “letters of
happiness” about levying a tax on the unemployed. At the very moment
when the people in Belarus were crushed by economic extortion from the
state and firmly said: “Basta! to tax and regime”; when protesters claim
to state policy and are outraged by the work of tax inspections, the
officials, sitting in the offices, continue to indulge the authorities
in stealing money of workers and temporarily unemployed people. They do
not think that they are in complicity with state racket, i.e. Crime,
which includes a whole list of punitive measures against common people:
blackmail, extortion, threats, repression, enforcement to social and
economic slavery.

To the executors and guides of this predatory regime – in this case to
tax inspectors – we sent our warning gesture and response to the
requisitions in the form of “Molotov cocktails.” This is done because
the parasite deeply spit on the people, since they are fulfilling the
dictates of the fuhrer Lukashenko and do not attach importance to what is
happening in the country, under the cover of the total lies of the
media. By their actions, we point out to them this and say to stop
promoting robbery and tyranny on the side of government authority.

Today we inflicted only insignificant damage to the building of the tax
inspection, we only spoiled the officials one day. The truth is that
ministries, inspections, police stations, KGB and other anti-people
departments deserve more destructive effects.
Only radical intervention and sabotage of the entire system, which is
tied to this regime, can stop the despotism of the authorities. The
events that took place on March 25 in Minsk, when the peaceful
demonstration was severely dispersed by assault police forces, is our
proof. Secret service and cops do everything to make people afraid and
not to resist. Today, to go even to a peaceful demo or a march of
protest means self-sacrifice. First, you will be recorded onto
high-quality video camera, then riot police or agents in civilian
clothes will try to grab you when you are going home. But even if you
manage to avoid this, you can still wait for “guests” at any moment,
anywhere: at school, at work, at the entrance of home or in flat. If you
got in sight of the vigilant dogs of the dictator, authoritarian regime
will not forget anyone.

Due to the fact that the campaign started across the country against tax
on unemployed the cops for the last month shook and took a lot of
fighters with the system. Among their hammers were our anarchist
comrades. Someone was imprisoned, some were searched, some were publicly
harassed and insulted through pro-government media. It hurts us much to
look at this. Our mind is seething with indignation.

Citizens, brothers and sisters, countrymen and countrywomen, we –
anarchists –  urge you to resist the state in every possible way!
Remember, Molotov cocktails have always been very popular among the
people. If you are trying to defend dignity and honor, you need to fight
back in the most determined manner. At night, in a guerrilla manner, as
our ancestors once did in the fight against the occupation totalitarian
regimes. In the early 1940s, an unprecedented number of detachments of
insurgents and underground members operated on the Belarusian lands. All
of them every day were living their lives, fighting against enemy
invaders. We believe that among the inhabitants of Belarus there are
many spiritual descendants of fighters of those times.

Cops and KGB are not all-powerful. This is proven by all the night
attacks of anarchists. Well-planned attacks on state institutions are
held without detentions. Anarchists always quietly dissolved in the
depths of the night. If you have not previously been exposed as an
“extremist”, then no one will suspect you.

We are in solidarity with all the repressed!
Freedom for all detainees!
Down with Lukashenko’s gang! Down with the parasites-officials!
Self-organize to fight!
