In the past “Proletarskaya Gazeta” has reported that rank-and-file troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) are forming union structures in a number of cities of Russia in order to defend their rights and interests against the arbitrariness and corruption of local authorities. The unions of the MIA in their struggle against the exploiting class have established official fraternal links with the Federation of Workers Unions of Russia, “Defense of Labor”. The ruling bourgeoisie is terribly afraid of the alliance of the workers unions and the rank-and-file troops of the MIA, and it’s doing its best to disrupt it. A year ago the authorities of Novosibirsk tried its best to liquidate the union of local rank-and-file troops of the MIA. Indictments have been fabricated against activist of this union movement. Today the local authorities of Tomsk are using the same dirty methods, including the creation of conditions favorable for the physical liquidation of union activists.
We call an all the workers organizations of Russia and abroad, to all communists, honest and progressive people, to support in these hard times the rank-and-file troops of the MIA, who are being subjected to physical terror by the bourgeois authorities ofRussia.
