Remembering Ilya

Vigil outside Russian Embassy for Ilya Bodoraenko, 21, an anarchist and environmental activist from the group Autonomous Action, who died in hospital after being brutally attacked by Russian fascists at an anti-nuclear camp on 21 July. The environmentalist camp, organised by “Ecological Wave of Baikal”, was a protest against the nuclear enrichment plant in the Siberian city of Angarsk. More than 15 neo-nazis attacked the 21 campers with iron bars, knives, and pneumatic pistols, and burnt down their tents. War Resisters' International has been raising funds to support the injured campers. WRI: 020 7278 4040 or info@wri-irg.org
