ASF action at the Serbian Consulate
Recently members of the ASF presented a letter of protest to the Serbian government in protest about the arrest of IWA comrades in Serbia. The letter is shown below and a video of the event can be seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyuzLBbvpMo
Open letter to the Serbian Consulate, Australia
We demand the release by the Serbian government of Ratibor Trivunac, Tadej Kurepa, Ivan Vulović, Sanja Đokić and Nikola Mitrović, members of the Anarcho-Syndicalist Initiative (ASI). We protest the unjust arrest and detainment of our comrades on trumped-up charges, which the ASI has vehemently denied (http://slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=7227).
This attack on the ASI, and by extension the International Workers Association (IWA), is an attack on organised labour everywhere. All dissenters should be concerned by the trend towards labelling all dissent “terrorism.” The latest escalation of oppression by the Serbian government comes after an ASI member was arrested for the trivial offence burning an American flag. Clearly there is an attempt to target the ASI. This will not go unnoticed internationally.
Even today, in coordination with this action comrades are also protesting at the Serbian consulate in Britain.
