Anarchist Pink Demonstration yesterday in St. Petersburg

assa | 17 Jul 2006 |

Yesterday afternoon around 5p.m. an anarchist pink demonstration started on Vasilysv island in St. Petersburg. With banners, black flags and slogans against the G8 summit around 70 activists walked on the streets for a little while until the police reached them and started to arrest people. More than 30 people have been taken to the police station. Today except two of them (one under 18) all have been released.

Obviously there have been a lot of police in civil clothes around the demonstration who were observing activists and to identify them later at the police station.
