In the early morning 21st July (20 o'clock 20.7. GMT) Nazi skinheads attacked an antinuclear protest camp in Angarsk, Siberia, Russia. The campers knew about the planned attack and had organized night guards, but they were much too few (1 to 3). The Nazis attacked the sleeping activists with iron rods, knives and air pressure guns. At least two campers became seriously injured: A person suffered a head-fracture, one became both legs broken. All tents were set in fire, several belongings were stolen.

The telephonenumber of the camp is: +79 24 621 2465

The camp started the last week-end against a planned center of uranium enrichment in Angarsk. The first reaction of the authorities was to arrest ten persons on the 14th July illegally. All of them were released after some hours but faced intimidations and their fingerprints. Since then the campers organised the contact with local population and have built up the camp. For the week-end everyday rallies were planned, with which it should be informed about the planned arrangement and the problems connected to it.

There have been allready several complications with security-forces, who penetrated the campers and tried to frighten them to get to know what they planned.
