Presentation from Solidarity Zone initiative that support those repressed for actions against war

Solidarity zone's member will talk about political context, led to the failure of peaceful protest, screws tightening and appearing of individual acts of militant resistance against russian imperialism and military aggression in Ukraine. In our helping work we face, on the one hand, with symbolic actions, and on the other, with more prepared acts of sabotage. Both of them seem to be significant for further understanding of ongoing social processes and political inertia of russian society.

Solidarity Zone is a horizontal initiative supporting those persecuted for anti-war actions. We came together in the spring of 2022 to help those left without attention by human rights organizations. Everyone is worthy of defense and solidarity. And we stand in solidarity with people who have spoken out in word and deed against state violence.
