Update from Antifenix, the movement fighting repression and Operation Fenix:


New accusations: Fenix 2 is spinning up

It was quite clear, that releasing Lukáš Borl from the prison doesn’t
mean the end of another continuing of Fenix operation. More precisely
Fenix 2 (The case of Lukas Borl). One of the charges brought against
Lukáš is establishing, supporting and spreading a movement leading to
suppressing human rights and freedoms. But the police will have kind of
a hard time to prove existence of a group, where ther is only one
person. Even for terrorism are needed at least three people, every
newbie at the police academy knows that. And members of police units are
not counted as part of the group! And so genius idea was born and it was
clear that at least the second episode of Fenix needs a better
reputation. After “unbiased“ judge in Fenix 1 ( the entrapment case
where five anarchist facing charges for a “terrorist attack” against the
train with military equipment in a state of preparation), who worked 13
years for ÚOOZ (the same unit who infiltrated and later arrested the
group), would love to shoot refugees, hates Roma people and very
probably women too, and after embarrassing apology from the Ministry of
injustice to Igor after Igor was found “innocent” by the supreme court
two weeks ago (doesn’t mean much, he still faces the deportation
procedure), would policemen look like total losers if they kept claiming
that Borl supports movement consisting of himself.

So the police shifted up a gear and came up with a plan. Into Fenix 2
were added four more people. On June 9th the police launched a
prosecution against 3 aanarchists and one environmental firebrand, all
charged with 16 felonies in total. Those 68 pages of accusation almost
sound like a stupid joke if we consider that charges are based on who
may wrote what on the internet some years ago, what kind of literature
was kept at home or what does he thinks. But unfortunately we know that
this is only another repression from the police and those five fellow
troublemakers persecuted in Fenix 2 (Lukáš plus four new ones) face
bullying, have to search for lawyers and can end up in jail and that’s
where the “fun” stops.

We are actually not kidding at all. After sentence in Aachen, few days
ago, against anarchist who was sentenced to 7,5 years, are these
accusations showing again and again that any kind of apology from the
ministry of justice (as they just sent to Igor) is only a strategic move
to legitimize another repression, control and bully. But no state will
ever get our legitimacy.

In solidarity with the accused in Felix 1 and Fenix 2, Igor, Warsaw Three,
anarchist sentenced in Aachen and all the other rebels behind the bars.
With desire for freedom in our hearts.
