Anti-Daesh and anti-Assad protestors made an angry demo within the capital of the Daesh capital city, al-Raqqa, in this 26 September 2013 covert footage published March 21 2015. After the demo the terrorist gang enacted reprisals against the demonstrators and their families. At least two people were killed and another two disappeared.
Freedom for the people of al-Raqqa
Battle for Raqqa: Kurdish female and male fighters of YPG, YPJ and Peshmerga forces pushed ISIS back to the gate of their capital in al-Raqqa, as the villages around Kobani were liberated from ISIS including Lafarge Cement Factory. These clips are from a YPG operation between February 17-22, the aim is to cut off the ISIS route from Raqqa to Aleppo. This is the beginning of the end for Daesh/IS.
March 14: Kurdish YPG and YPJ forces attacked ISIS positions around the bridge of Qereqozaq to the south of Kobani, the aim of the Kurdish fighters is to cut ISIS’ route from Raqqa to the Turkish border.
Kurdish YPG/YPJ Fighters liberate Bridge on Euphrates from ISIS
March 16, the Kurdish Female and Male Figures of YPG and YPJ took control of the strategic Qereqozaq Bridge over the Euphrates from ISIS (Islamic State) in Rojava of Kurdistan (Syrian Kurdistan). The Qereqozaq Bridge is around 1.5 km long and 15 m wide and occupies a strategic crossing along the Euphrates connecting the cities of Kobanê and Minbic and it’s a route ISIS uses to get from Raqqa to the Turkish border.
Send the terrorists to hell – confront the Islamist-fascists and the enemies of freedom – Victory will be ours
On Thursday, 25/03, at 15:00 p.m. there will be a phone communication (in Greek) in the squatted radio station “red 105.5 fm” with a hunger striker – member of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, who will inform us about the medical situation of the comrades and other news.
Strength to the hunger strikers, not a step back until victory
Immediate release of the relatives of the Conspiracy and satisfaction of all the demands of the hunger strikers.
Since yesterday, March 23rd, anarchist prisoner on hunger strike Kostas Gournas (convicted Revolutionary Struggle member) has been moved from the type C maximum security prison of Domokos to the provincial hospital in Lamia, where the conditions are indescribably appalling, the prisoners are placed in isolation room-cells, and communication with them becomes difficult if not impossible.
In a brief telephone conversation just before his transfer, the comrade said: “The Ministry of Justice urges us to stop the hunger strike and rely on them… How much ‘reliability’ their commitments have as part of this government is demonstrated every day as they rip out the Memorandum and the implementation laws, cancel the ENFIA single property tax, and request a write-off of a large part of the debt… I only rely on the struggle. I continue the hunger strike.”
Today, Monday, March 23, I join the hunger strike that aims to counter-attack the ever increasing repressive campaign of the State against the anarchist movement and generally anyone who resists. I will be the last participant from the Network of Fighting Prisoners who joins the strike, as the comrades Rami Syrianos and Spyros Stratoulis, can not participate because they have not yet fully recovered from last year’s multi-day hunger strike.
- The abolition of articles 187 and 187A (counter-terrorism laws).
- The abolition of the law concerning special repressive treatment to actions commited wearing a hood.
- The abolition of the legal framework that sets the function of type C prisons.
- The release of the guerrilla of R.O. 17th November Savas Ksiros, so that he can receive the healthcare he needs.
- The abolition of violent DNA sampling.
- The access to DNA samples by a biologist who the defendant trusts.
- The abolition of the analysis of samples that contain mixed DNA from more than two persons.
While social democratic reserves of the regime try to flatter us and ecstatic besotted petty bourgeois voters are dancing sirtaki at Syntagma, during demonstrations in favor of the government (!), the wolves that escaped the hunt come down to the city with rage…
It goes without saying that no faction of authoritarian potty politicians would ever be able to satisfy our wild desires. You’re talking about left government, we wish for the State to be destroyed. You’re promising salary increases, reduced taxes, jobs, we want the elimination of money, commodity and labor. You’re asking for “democratization of the security forces,” we want the cops dead on asphalt. You’re fighting for better conditions in the neighborhoods, but we want to just have fun on the flaming ruins of your cities. You do politics, we make war. Things are difficult dear perry politicians. You understand that there is a vast existential abyss between us and there is not much room for dialogue.
So, it is no wonder that on Monday 23/3, at dawn, the official day of the “neighborhood cop” return, we chose to offer the office of the local organization of the governing party into the flames of negation, in Patisia.
We dedicate this attack to our brothers and sisters on hunger strike and we demand the immediate satisfaction of all of their demands, without implying that any of the enemy’s concessions, on such particular demands, can silence our longing for the total destruction of your world and your emetic society:
- Immediate release of Savas Ksiros
- Immediate release of the Tsakalos’ brothers’ mother and Gerasimos’ partner.
- Abolition of the counter-terrorist laws and the hood-law.
- Abolition of C’ Type prisons.
- Abolition of the provisions relating to violent DNA taking.
- Free internet access for all the prisoners.
NO TRUCE – THE WAR CONTINUES
nihilistic patrol / neighborhood arsonists
The war drums sounded again through the unending darkness of prison, the war is constant, it never stopped. But it is the hour of the new attack. Women and men hold tight with passion the weapons of freedom and throw themselves into another battle.
The enemy is locked up in the towers and castles he watches.
Afraid. Afraid of that which he cannot understand. That which is unknown for him. He made new laws, rules, built new dungeons. He hunted witches, he tortured, intimidated, threatened, blackmailed, imprisoned, promised. In vain.
He is afraid. Afraid of those who move camouflaged around him. The uncaught accomplices. They take and give strength to his prisoners. They declare being his mortal enemies and seek his destruction.
Today at dawn, we blew up one of the 4 entrances-exits of the courts located at the centre of Heraklion.
This attack was symbolic.
In case of murder or cause of a permanent health problem to a hunger striker, the fire that burns inside us will turn the night into day.
Radio Kokkino (pro-syriza radio station) was occupied today by supporters of the hunger strikers. More updates as they come. . .
An excerpt from their communique: “We of the occupation of ‘Kokkino 105.5′ are taking things into our own hands and making counter-information a weapon! This action is a part of the polymorphous movement of solidarity with the imprisoned hunger strikers. For the victory of the hunger strikers! Destroy all prisons!”
Today in Kadıkoy, we marched in solidarity with prisoners in Greek prisons, who are in hunger strike since 2nd of March and who turn to death fast. During march, we chanted slogans: “Destroy Prisons, Free the Prisoners”, “Wage Slavery System will end with anarchy”, “Greetings to the comrades who are fighting and fallen”, “Insurrection, Revolution, Anarchy”. This action was finished in a peaceful way, but if something come over our comrades, we’ll turn the streets to hell.
Long Live Anarchy!
The axis of the rabble has struck. We set fire with the intention of considerably impairing the power supply and the grid connection of the large data centres of Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, Deutsche Börse [that operates the Frankfurt Stock Exchange], and many others in Eschborn.
On March 16th, 2015, at 5am, the ground cables of an electricity pylon and three distribution boxes of Vodafone went up in flames on the outskirts of Eschborn near the A66 highway.
The side of the State tried to gag the disruption of the capitalist daily life by imposing a news blackout on Monday; however, telecommunication and power supply failures, as well as a large contingent of firefighters deployed in the early morning hours in Frankfurt did not go unnoticed.
Since yesterday morning, March 21st, hunger striker Dimitris Koufontinas (convicted 17N member) has been transferred from the type C maximum security prison of Domokos to the provincial hospital in Lamia, where he’s being held in a room-cell with no window. In addition to the miserable conditions, it becomes difficult, if not impossible, for supporters to communicate with any prisoner who may find themselves moved to this hospital.
Yesterday, Kurdish people and their supporters confronted the street presence of Daesh-supporting Islamic-fascists at their protest stall outside a Boots chemist store in High Road, Wood Green in the late afternoon. The Islamists use the stall to promote Sharia Law and the Islamic State. Police came and protected the few fascists from the angry crowd, but quickly the Islamists packed up and left the area. The Kurdish people and their supporters made a procession to their community centre to celebrate their new year of Newroz. There were no arrests.
Video here, with running commentary by some local kids debating the scene who caught the footage on their fone -
- Withdrawal of the special anti-terrorist legislation and specifically the terrorist and criminal organization laws (laws 187A and 187).
- Withdrawal of the special repressive laws (anti-hoodie law).
- Abolishment of the “C-type” prisons that constitute the finalization of the separation and exemption status of political prisoners.
- Delineation of the use and processing of DNA as legal.
- Immediate release of Savvas Xiros who is being slowly exterminated over the past 13 years by the vengeful state despite his 98 % disability.
- Immediate release of family members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF).
Today, Saturday 21/03 in the morning, about an hour after midnight, comrade Fivos Harisis, after having suffered a fainting episode in his cell, was initially transferred to the infirmary and then to the “hospital” Saint Paul of Korydallos prison. Although the doctor signed a referral for his transfer to an outside hospital, for unspecified reasons, Fivos remained in a hospital cell for the whole night, although it was at hypoglycemic shock limits with his sugar index reaching up to 45. The suffering of the comrade continued until 10 am, when the procedure for his transfer to “Attikon” hospital begun.
Yesterday, the comrade published a text informing us about his experience in Tzanio hospital:
Today, 20/3, and while being on the 19th day of hunger strike, I was transferred, after three hours of staying in the “hospital” of Korydallos prison, to Tzanio with the suffocating escort of EOM and EKAM (special police squads). My transfer to a tertiary hospital was deemed necessary as during my today’s medical review, my personal doctor Sakkas Spyridon diagnosed low blood sugar values (59), malaise, dizziness in addition to the fact that I’ve lost 9.3 pounds equivalent to 12.8% of my body weight.
During my stay in Tzanio all examinations were taking place under the suffocating presence of cops, a fact that didn’t irritate doctors at all, as they appeared to be very familiar with it. It is worth pointing out that during two medical tests the cops were willing to remove my handcuffs but the doctors did not let them, thus I had to be examined in irons. After all examinations were done and while I was lying handcuffed on a stretcher with four cops above my head, a doctor came in and started to inject sugar water into the tube they were using to get my blood sample, without asking me. When I realized what was happening (because I had my eyes closed at the beginning) I stopped her and removed the injection myself, asking her intensely why was she doing that without asking me while clarifying that the hunger strike I am on is my conscious choice and that I want to control the current decay of my body. After a short debate the doctor clarified in a harsh way that I as prisoner and a patient will do what the doctors say, not what I want and then she left. After ten minutes, the manager of the pathology clinic, Drimis Stylianos, made clear to me that if I do not accept the serum, I can not be hospitalized. To my arguments that the care of a hunger striker in the hospital is not about administrating serum but offering the best conditions possible in relation to the prison hospital and the direct control of vital organs, he repeated that there is no way for me to be hospitalized without serum. Finally, after my refusal to receive serum, to my question if he takes the responsibility to return me to prison with my blood sugar at the limits of a hypoglycemic shock, he replied that he does and that he has even signed the paperwork that would send me back to prison.
The doctors in each case must learn to step up and not work as subordinates of the cops when the patient happens to be a prisoner. The hunger strike is a conscious political choice of resistance. A choice made knowing the risks beforehand. The medical staff must be next to the patient by providing (in agreement with him/her) the necessary care instead of acting in a repressive way, just like another prison guard. From my side, I continue the hunger strike with no intention to retreat, supporting the demands of the Network of Fighting Prisoners:
- Abolition of counter-terrorism laws 187 and 187a
- Abolition of the law concerning special repressive treatment to actions commited wearing a hood.
- Limiting the use of DNA as a evidence.
- Abolition of type C prisons
-Release of the heavily injured urban guerrilla Savvas Ksiros, in order for him to receive the medical treatment he needs.
For every day that passes and for any deterioration of our health condition, the government of SYRIZA and specifically the minister of Justice Nikos Paraskevopoulos are to be held accountable.
After the deposition of the legislation of the Ministry of Justice, there appears to be a first victory of the political prisoners’ hunger strike.
The abolition of the legal framework that defines the operation of the C’type prisons and the beneficial provisions for patients and disabled prisoners, that lead to the release of multi-injured guerilla of the revolutionary organization 17 November, Savvas Xiros, would feel (or at least not so soon) without the struggle that is being carried out. But there is much more to happen.
We do not care for any governmental statement or any promise coming from state employees. Every authoritarian mechanism that deals with a hunger strike by its stated enemies will go into a deterioration war that will include promises, negated deadlines, vague statements and anything that could wear us down physically and/or psychologically. Especially Syriza, who all during its political life as a major or minor opposition demeaned and de-politicized the hunger strikes carried out by anarchist hostages, has great experience in the systemic managing of such situations.

International revolutionary solidarity with anarchist companera Sol F. Vergara (Chile)
Our dear companera Sol was pointed out by power and accused of the attack on the miserable Banco Estado security guard Rolando Vargas Fuentes, in which 4 bullets were fired as a gesture of revenge for the murderous shots that another of his colleagues fired at the anarchist companero Sebastian Overluij, which slew him. See also here.
Pola Roupa, Nikos Maziotis, Kostas Gournas are imprisoned anarchist comrades in Greece who have taken responsibility, as well as of slain comrade Lambros Foundas, of membership of the Revolutionary Organisation - Revolutionary Struggle. Their actions and their articulate anarchist analysis of capitalism and their high hopes for social revolution press a question to each reader who is ready to rebel and embrace their freedom. On 24 October 2011 their trial began. You can find updates about the process translated into English here and here. Update: N. Maziotis was captured after an armed clash with police in Athens. P.Roupa and their baby-son, Victor Lambros are still in clandestinity. Find further news here.
"This pamphlet is a meeting point of comrades from all over the world. An imaginary meeting since the walls and bars of the prisons where we are temporarily keep our bodies hostage. But our meanings remain free, escape from the cells of prison and are expressed with words continuing to provoke authority.
Words that still smell of fire and gunpowder, words which carry with them all of our hate for the system, words unrepentant and armed, words which transfer stresses and desires, words which break the isolation of prison, words full of passion for the mutiny we want to continue, words from Chile, Mexico, America, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Bulgaria, Indonesia..."CCF
The so-called "Security Case" concerns our revolutionary comrades Juan Aliste Vega, Marcelo Villarroel Sepulveda, and Freddy Fuentevilla Saa, who are currently held captive in prisons of the Chilean State. Some background info. See also here.
