Radical Action against the the Terminal in Krasnodar


On Nov. 1, 3 activists from Rainbow Keepers and Autonomous Action made an
action against the building of an ammoniac  terminal in Taman.

Aleksandr Zimbovski from Yekaterinburg blocked the main entrance of the main
adminstrative building of the Krasnodar region by locking it with a lock and
chain which was tied around his neck. Two women from Autonomous Action in
Sochi and Krasnodar had a banner against the terminal. Almost immediately
the cops showed up and broke the chains. Aleksnadr was detained and dragged
inside the building. Journalists recorded these events. Then some guy came
out an harrassed journalists and took Aleksandr to the UVD. What was
interesting was that they were prepared and apparently always have a special
saw ready by the entrance of the building and were able to cut through the
thick chain in seconds.

Zimboski was held overnight and nothing happened to the women with the
banner.
