Athens: Responsibility claim for sabotage against 14 bank ATMs on the 6th of December (Greece)
December 21st, 2012
“When praxis meets theory…”
Four years later, murders, tortures, imprisonments and prosecutions of fighters are continued at the hands of the State.
State repression unfolds itself in all its glory, from the daily 8pm news bulletins to the streets where cops prevail.
Fascism is alive and being fed by the daggers of neo-Nazis but also behind the closed doors of house apartments-cages, where the greatness of the sacred ‘family’ institution reaches manhood.
The society doesn’t want to know, doesn’t want to remember.
Four years after the December insurgency, the fire still burns.
On Thursday the 6th of December 2012, in the early morning hours, we sabotaged 14 bank ATMs in the Athens districts of Gyzi, Alexandras Avenue, Patission and Evelpidon streets, plugging them up with polyurethane foam and pasting stickers on their screen that read ‘Closed due to the 6th of December.’
We choose to take action by creating direct action cells, because we’re among those who are not satisfied with simply lighting candles over headstones.
We break the inertia of an enervated society which is accommodated in its slump. Its rotten carcass shudders hedonically at the idea of getting back the ‘privileges’ of the miserable life it had before the ‘crisis,’ not minding whether the fascists or the Left will give them back.
As for you passive asshole, who got used to the role of spectator, we fuck your normality. There’s neither money nor shopping for you today (after two weeks, some ATMs are still broken down).
Finally, we believe that such actions can be carried out by anyone, as long as there’s determination. The more the state and parastatal violence is increasing, the more counter-violence should be increased.
PS.1: Our entire operation was completed under the cops’ nose; you stupid coppers (baskines) passed three times in front of us and luckily for you, you didn’t stop us.
PS.2: Greetings and love to our four-legged comrade. We thank him very much for his valuable help.
PS.3: Stalinist scumbags of Perissos (headquarters of the Greek ‘communist’ party), you made reference to the events of the December revolt only to use them to your advantage, despite the fact that you had not only been absent but also polemicist to the riots; you shit must know that we don’t buy your lies. We lived in December ’08. We were born and shaped by the insurgency.
Comradely regards and all our solidarity to:
- the Informal Anarchist Federation/International Revolutionary Front (FAI/IRF)
- the Earth Liberation Front (ELF)
- the imprisoned members of the CCF in Greece and anarchist Theofilos Mavropoulos
- all street rascals (alania) that clash with the State and its minions in Chile, Mexico, Greece and all over the world
- all anarchist hostages
- finally, to all those who contribute to translate these texts and spread the word across the globe.
