Letter from the Initiative of Anarchist Prisoners in Korydallos Prison (Greece)

July 30th, 2013

“WE KNOW THAT EVERYONE DIES. BUT THERE ARE DEATHS WHICH OPPRESS BECAUSE THEY CHOOSE THEIR OWN WAY” Katerina Gogou

With continual and extensive media coverage, the hunt for the escapees of Trikala prison continues for almost four months, by keeping the audience in suspense, as it has all the elements of an overproduction: “cinematic” escape, “ruthless” and “bloodthirsty” murders, “hard and decided” cops, scuffles, dead people and a manhunt over a huge area of the Greek territory.

The fourth power [media] is the most nodal for the functioning of democracy, because it mediates between other powers and citizens and it reminds us of the rules of the game once again: the democratic state spares no time, effort and resources when the doctrine of security should be established.

‘Fragment: The She-Wolf’ by L

July 27th, 2013

Originally published in ‘My Own’ #6 by Apio Ludd (November 22, 2012).

The nihilist-anarchist doesn’t have to pretend that she belongs to a History or a Movement but chooses how her life will be in her own way, with the methods that she alone chooses with the close ones around her. She does not make excuses why she organises with an intimate group of 2-3 of her close friends. Her creative output circulates at the level she chooses and provides for, are co-created by those who have decided between them that they’ll be together for some activities or correspondence. She knows alegalism and informality suit her and has no pretence of democracy, mass appeal or mass action. Life provides the space for her thoughtful-actions already. She has become the crowd, and in her she has annulled time and society, she can do anything she likes, if she puts her mind to it and accepts the consequences. No one gets out of life alive. To live or to die, and to hold the life of an enemy in her hands – squeeze the trigger, or not, if she chooses. Her life is her own. She is not a victim but an aggressor. The enemy will live and die at her choosing, not theirs. All is decided by her will, which is hers alone. She has no strategy other than seizing her opportunities, and no tactics but her dignity and determination to succeed against the odds.

With methods suited to each individual, linked through action, rather than identity, she follows her bad passions(1) to hell, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

Support Irina Lipskaya, imprisoned anarchist and anti-fascist from Moscow (Russia)

July 27th, 2013

27th of June 2013; The arrest of Irina was prolonged until 2nd of October. She was arrested on the 2nd of July 2012, so now Irina has already spent more than one year in prison without a court date! Arrest of Irina was prolonged due to dubious claims of her alleged “victims” that they still have not acquainted themselves with the results of the investigation.

Irina is accused of having taken part in an armed assault against a Nazi concert in Moscow club “Barrikada” the day she was arrested. She has been charged with three felonies, including “hooliganism, committed by a group and with a preliminary intent” and “involving minors to a felony hate crime”, as one of the persons arrested with her was 17 years old at the moment of the arrest.

Lublin: Two banks attacked by ‘Felicity Ryder Anarchist Cell’ (Poland)

July 27th, 2013

More FOTOs from action: http://grecjawogniu.info/?p=15905

Our shoes are worn out from all the boring peace walks we have joined. Not only have we noticed holes on the shoe soles, but we have also realised that we are stuck in one place and our inner ferocity is now lulled into gentleness. Demonstrations are not a good outlet for our anger, which cannot be satisfied with mere tramping the streets, all under the watchful eye of the police. Thus, we feel forced to seek new paths of action.

This is why, on the 1st of May we went for a walk without informing the authorities. We took with us a few litres of paint and made a resolution that we need to do something for our comrades. We painted windows of two banks located in two different parts of the city. Their owners should know that not every potential visitor will have peaceful intentions and will beg for a loan.

We dedicate the operation to Felicity Ryder, an anarchist from Australia, who has been hiding for months from the watchdogs, as well as to those arrested in Greece, Italy and other parts of the world.

Banks are a perfect target for anarchist attacks. Behind their rehearsed smiles, the clerks hide everyday tragedies. Banks play the role of blood vessels of this fucked up system, they back up armies and multinational corporations, they help to concentrate the capital in the hands of very few, they protect business of the rich, and speculate with the money of the poor. Banks are the very institutions on which financial market dictatorship rests. Through banks’ throats there runs a monstrous assembly tape of contemporary civilisation, which covers the globe with chains of wage labour causing exploitation, alienation, and eco-catastrophe.

Communique by the CCF-FAI about Marian Kola (Greece)

July 26th, 2013

Via Parabellum & Nihilist Abyss

MIRUPAFSIM**

And, after all, how is freedom truly gained? The only sure thing is, that he lies outside the cells of Democracy, outside the storage of human souls, outside the land of “correction”, obedience, apathy and psychiatric drugs.

Everyday is a repeating reality. Every morning, noon, evening you hear the sound of the keychain. Body counting. They have to be sure that you are still locked up, inside four walls. And only a stroll in the prison yard, while looking at the blue sky, makes you yearn for the outside… and tomorrow again from the start… In an everyday routine, where time seems to be frozen… Read the rest of this entry »

Buenos Aires: Banco ITAU attacked with stones and spraypaint slogans (Argentina)

July 25th, 2013

El pasado jueves 18 atacamos a pedradas el Banco ITAU situado en las calles Bolivar y Moreno, en pleno centro porteño. A su vez, dejamos pintado en sus vidrieras “Solidaridad con la Revuelta en Brasil”. Un gesto mínimo que queríamos comunicar en momentos donde el papa Francisco I (Jorge Bergoglio) se pasea por las calles del país vecino, antes una masa imbécil que lo vitorea, mientras miles mueren de hambre o bajo balas del ejercito, mientras otrxs tantos revientan hacinados en las favelas o bajo el martillo del narcotráfico y las drogas.

Ni la ostentación de la riqueza del vaticano, ni el espectáculo millonario del próximo mundial de fútbol, pueden tapar tanta miseria.

Contra toda Autoridad!
PROPAGANDA Y ACCIÓN

On Thursday 18 we attacked the ITAU Bank with stones located in streets Bolivar & Moreno, in downtown Buenos Aires. In turn, we painted on their windows “Solidarity with the revolt in Brazil.” A small gesture that we wanted to communicate in the moments where Pope Francis I (Jorge Bergoglio) wanders the streets of the neighboring country before a mass cheering circle-jerk, while thousands starve or are under army bullets and while many others are in bursting overcrowded favelas or under the hammer of drug trafficking and drugs.

Neither the ostentation of wealth of the Vatican, or the millionaire show of the next World Cup, can cover so much misery.

Against all Authority!

Two dolphins liberated from Yevpatoria dolphinarium by ‘SEALS on tour’ cell of the Animal Liberation Front – Informal Anarchist Federation (Ukraine)

July 23rd, 2013

2 dolphins were set free from Yevpatoria dolphinarium as a result of a special operation with diving equipment. During the night of the full moon on 20/07/2013 we covered 2 km under water and breached the security perimeter: We cut the nets and entered the dolphin containment pools.

In the next hour we cut a large part of the perimeter barrier. Dolphins encouraged our efforts with clicks and whistling. Their support filled us with joy and excitement.

This has been an unforgettable meeting and encouraging experience for us. Our job done, we left the area of operation. By the way, the prison was equipped with night-vision cameras, but their red eyes were turned on the catwalks and audience seats. Nobody expected our approach from below. As soon as dolphins got wind of freedom and open water, they escaped into the night sea.

Solidarity with the ‘Temuco 12′ (Wallmapu)

July 20th, 2013

Solidarity with the anarchists of the Temuco ‘Bombs Case’

Starting August 1 and lasting at least until September 11, a dozen Mapuche who have been longtime fighters for total independence will be brought to trial, accused under the Chilean state’s antiterrorism laws. On June 28, 2009, Mapuche community members used fallen trees to block five highways in the area of Temuco. At the Temuco bypass, a Tur-bus (similar to Greyhound) and three trucks trying to cross the blockades were stoned by masked Mapuche warriors, who spraypainted ‘Return Mapuche lands’ on the side of the bus.

Freedom to the Wolves of the North (Greece)

July 15th, 2013

On Thursday night, July 11, cops invaded the anarchist squat Nadir, stealing the squat’s equipment, causing damages and arresting one comrade. At the same time, another group of uniformed thugs arrests another comrade in the area of Stavroupoli, Thessaloniki.

We will not talk about “unfair prosecutions”, about “the climate of terror against those who fight”, nor about the “new totalitarianism” and things like that. That’s because we know that none of these is new. These are simply snapshots of the ancient war between two incompatible words: on the one side lies the disgusting world of the Authority, of the submissive crowd and of the social cesspit and on the other side, the anarchist insurgents, the insubordinate fighters of the Negative, those who do not bow down to nobody.

‘The State is the only Terrorist’ – About the repression in Thessaloniki (Greece)

July 15th, 2013

“Towards the end of this night, despondency is impermissible. I risk nothing anymore”
Paul Eluard

Every minute, every hour that passes, the historical evil represented by the State attacks a society that groans and dies slowly under its boot and in passivity.

However, fireworks of anger and resistance do not stop ripping up the generalized darkness and wild voices of fury and conscience do not stop giving birth to nightmares for the complacent and the poorer by the day population and calling for a wide front of resistance and liberation, for the necessity of the revolution.

‘Commando Mauricio Morales / FAI-IRF’ takes responsibility for the sending of a parcelbomb to Dimitris Horianopoulos, scumbag former commander of the anti-terrorist division (Greece)

July 14th, 2013

FAI/IRF

PHOENIX PROJECT – Part 4 [Parts 1, 2, 3 &... 5]

“Be proud of your actions, because it is through disobedience and insurrection that a bright ray of human beauty is born! Hello anarchists of praxis! Hello brothers and sisters!”
Renzo Novatore

Some thought that we raised a white flag. Some thought we forgot our imprisoned brothers and sisters and sunk in the social swamp, next to the two-legged herd. The bosses, journalists, politicians, society and the ridiculous “anarchist” bureaucrats thought they got rid of us.

For all those, Project Phoenix is a punch in the gut. A punch in the gut because the new anarchist urban guerrilla is here and tears down the desires of all these worms to terminate our actions. Old groups are activated and new are created, with the promise to give life to the nightmares of authority and its subjects.

Comrade G.Tsakalos has been held on remand for 32 months when the limit is 18. We do not care about the provisions of the constitution.

We do not desire the cleansing of institutions, we fight for their destruction. We know that the law is a weapon in the hand of dominance, just like we know that our ten imprisoned brothers and sisters will not be liberated with legal procedures.

We believe authority is total of values which in the core is the citizen-mass human, who lies in the muck of stagnation, where everyone forgets their name and responsibilities. But even in this disgust some have a name. One of them is Dimitris Horianopoulos. During his service as a commander of the anti-terrorist force, the operation against the R.O. CCF was carried out. Horianopoulos is nothing more than a piece of garbage of the complexity of security and the fact that he has retired does not mean that we forgot him. The same goes for the rest of the scumbags in his department. They should know that they are on the top of the target list of FAI/IRF.

We take responsibility for the sending of a parcelbomb to the scumbag mentioned above, which was, unfortunately, detected.

We dedicate our attack to the UNREPENTANT and PROUD members of the CCF, as well as all imprisoned anarchists of praxis, wherever they are. We send our LOVE and RESPECT to all anarcho-individualists, nihilists, and iconoclasts who discovered the fountain of life in the attack.

WE DO NOT BOW OUR HEADS TO NO ONE!

P.S. It was announced that the parcel was ignited after falling down in the post office. The parcel we sent was absolutely safe for anyone not a target. The mechanism activates ONLY if the envelope is opened and not if it falls or gets shaken. We do not know what happened. The only sure thing is that the package was opened.

Thessaloniki: Information from Steki Nadir about the repression (Greece)

July 14th, 2013

Two comrades are arrested and accused of sending the letter bomb to the former boss of the anti-terrorist unit. They are accused of all the actions that have taken place as the ‘Phoenix Project’.

Translated by Actforfreedomnow!boubourAs

Last night, Thursday July 11th, two anarchists are arrested after a large cop operation. As well the cops raid and search anarchist Steki Nadir and the Thessaloniki campus. At the same time there is an orchestrated media operation with the same journalists colleagues of the cops. In “Vima” newspaper, specific spaces and a specific comrade is portrayed.

Friday afternoon, cops make a pitiful announcement.
Heavy charges are attributed with no connection with the confiscated “evidence”. There is a charge for “possession of explosives” with no explosives found. As well, in a stupidity delirium, cops include in their announcement an action in a hotel in Jakarta Indonesia. Obviously, they are testing our limits, the limits of whole social layers, pulling on the rope until they meet resistance.

The scene is repeated: cops arrest comrades, known or not, load them with heavy charges for terrorism and -as an idiom- anarchy, charges which are not accompanied by evidence or findings, then follows the exposure of these people, their friends, relatives, and finally these people will be called after years in prison, to prove in court that they are not elephants, that they did not do what they are charged for.

Unfortunately, totalitarianism which evolves in every field, irrationality, and arbitrariness tend to become the rule. And the rule can be followed by habit, apathy, indifference.

Those arrested in Thessaloniki have been transferred to Athens in GADA (Athens police HQ) since their charges also include participation in a terrorist organization and so to specifically try to connect them with the CCF, which means soon they will get a visit by some interrogator handling the case.

Just after the incidents in Skouries, arrests, beatings, imprisonments and clashes, clashes of teachers at the education ministry, attack of the macho bully delta cops on the intervention for K.Sakkas, and the collaborated attack of cops and neonazis on the social space “Synergio” in Ilioupoli, the state screams “I am and will be here”.

The minister of cops and oppression, Dendias, just after the cops announcement about the arrests in Thessaloniki reminds that the diptych is: oppression and “national unity”.

No one hostage in the hands of the state.
Solidarity to all those who revolt.
Hold strong we are with you.

Another sad story – G4S and Jimmy Mubenga (UK)

July 13th, 2013

Another sad story, one that passes from time to time on the liberal media; a migrant is killed during deportation. Did this one starve themselves, sew their lips together, swallow razor blades in some private detention centre hell? No, Jimmy Mubenga was killed by three G4S security guards on a plane full of people during an episode of ‘legal restraint techniques’ that they inflicted upon him until he died. The Criminal Prosecution Service (CPS) decided not to prosecute the murder.

“Please, please, they are killing me.” cried Mubenga repeatedly to the passengers on the plane. Jimmy had a wife and a family that the UK Border Agency had snatched him from earlier. They would never see him again. And on the plane, the people saw him murdered by those “just doing their job”, and didn’t do anything about it. Now it’s more grief, as if death weren’t enough: the “inquest” of “British justice” rubber-stamps the approved killing and serves more white justice to black faces. Read the rest of this entry »

Welcome to Britain

July 13th, 2013

Britain, like any other country of the western world, is a huge prison for thousands and thousands of people who come here in search of a better life, the so-called ‘asylum seekers’. It’s not by chance that so many desperate people try to enter the U.K. as well as the other rich countries. They can’t do otherwise. In their homeland not even the basic conditions of surviving are left.

The globalisation of capital requires the maximum production at the lowest cost. That’s how the bosses move the centres of production from one country to the other searching for the cheapest labour cost. And that’s also the way they spread poverty and desolation and rob millions and millions of their resources. When the occasion occurs, the bosses and their armed mercenaries invade other countries to steal their oil or in order to keep some geopolitical context in equilibrium. Read the rest of this entry »

Political Statement of Nikos Maziotis in the Special Court at Korydallos Prison (Greece)

July 13th, 2013

Note: This statement was signed October 2012, but it was read to the court by Maziotis’ lawyer in January 2013, while Nikos Maziotis and Pola Roupa, both admitted members of Revolutionary Struggle, were underground. Both remain fugitives today.

translation by This Is Our Job:

I authorize my defense attorney Dafni Vagianou, who represents me, to read the following text during the upcoming phase requesting the statements of the defendants in the special court at Korydallos Prison chosen for the trial of the case of the Revolutionary Struggle organization, of which I am a member.

 

Revolutionaries and armed fighters do not apologize. Instead, when they come before a court of the class enemy, like yours, they defend their actions by assuming political responsibility, taking pride in that responsibility, and defying the consequences.

 

In all these years of my history as an anarchist, I have faced a long list of prosecutions for my actions. I have already spent five years in the prisons of the Greek state. I have been arrested and tried for refusing to comply with service in the armed forces of the Greek state; for my participation in occupations, like the occupation of ASOEE1 in August 1994 and that of the Polytechnic in November 1995; as well as for the placement of a bomb at the Development Ministry in December 1997 and for possession of weapons and explosives. In the last case specifically—the 1997 bombing at the Development Ministry—I assumed political and criminal responsibility for the attack as well as for weapons and explosives possession, and I was thus the first fighter during the transition to assume responsibility for an urban guerrilla action in Greece.
