Greece: 1st session of the fourth trial for the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire case – Athens

April 30th, 2013

Translated by bourbourAs/actforfree

5th April 2013: 4th trial for the Conspiracy Cells of Fire case.
One more trial for the actions of the CCF began at Koridallos prisons.

Besides the members of the Conspiracy accused in the same case are also Dimitris Politis, Giannis Mihailidis, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Alexandros Mitrousias, Kostas Sakkas and Stella Antoniou (who are also accused in the third trial which is taking place as well) and Kostandina Karakatsani and Panagiotis Masouras.
Theofilos Mavropoulos read a common statement of the now ten members of the CCF, after which all members of the organization left the room.

“As I have stated in a previous court and in older public texts, I have been next to the comrades of the CCF as a solidarian anarchist, without however being a member of the Conspiracy. From the first moment of my arrest after the shoot out with the cops in Pefki, the comrades of the Conspiracy stood next to me like brothers. Inside prison we shared common worries, tensions and forged our steel passion for liberation through our common escape attempt in December 2011. Today for me the CCF is an inseparable piece of my thought, my desires and my personal mutiny for anarchy.
This is why as of today, here in your court, I state that I join the CCF and share together with the imprisoned and non arrested members the endless course to the anarchist insurrection. Participating now in the Conspiracy, I will read a collective statement for this trial. All of us, the members of the CCF, want to clarify some things.
In this trial, besides us who have taken the responsibility for our participation and support of the Conspiracy, all other accused do not have, neither have any relation with the charges attributed to them.
They never were, neither could ever be members of the Conspiracy.
An ocean of disagreements, perceptions and choices divides us…
The CCF and FAI is an international network of anarchists of praxis
who stand against the enemy with the certainty of those who play it all or nothing and refuse the proof of innocence and legal mitigations.

The Conspiracy and the Informal Anarchist Federation through their hundreds of attacks express the black anarchy which sets fire to the silence of the many and cowardice of the reformists.
All the charges in your indictments are a piece of the anarchist history and the armed course of the Conspiracy through the social desert of mass subjugation.
It is our compass in the unmapped unknown of the anarchist insurrection.
It is the unique moment where theory meets practice.
It is there where the law dies and anarchy is born.
It is there where the sounds of the explosions and the gun shots break the calmness of the crowd.
These moments are our moments. These history is our history.
A history which cannot be put on trial, neither finishes inside the court room.
We are the gasoline, the gun powder, the detonator, the bullet, the gun.
The only thing you will get from us is war.
The Conspiracy is, was, itself.
This is our Anarchy”.

G.Mihailidis read a common statement of his and D.Politis and then left the procedure.
“Give us a copy”, asked the chairman, “this statement is not for you”, answered D.Politis, while the cops were cuffing them.

The statement:
“We state that: We refuse to participate in the procedure of the court, not only because it is a mean of the state to demean and bend the anarchist struggle, not only because its function aims at the respite of anarchist action,but mainly because we do not recognize any institutional representative of the bourgeois democracy to judge people.
As anarchist revolutionaries we stand hostile against the bourgeios justice which sends people to the rot of imprisonment in order to defend the criminal lawful order of capitalism. Also, we support the anarchist revolutionary war in every of its forms.
We are part of the violent and guerilla action and will defend it as an inseparable part of the struggle.”

The trial continued on April 15th.

Greece: Communiqué by Athens IMC administration assembly, 18.4.2013

April 30th, 2013

via contra-info:

We continue to respond in a political manner to the political decision toward censorship that all of the minions of Capital and totalitarianism undertook silently

On Thursday noon, April 11th, 2013 the rector of the National Technical University of Athens (Athens Polytechnic School), Simos Simopoulos, took the political decision to repress counter-information media by cutting off network access to Athens IMC (athens.indymedia.org) and 98FM self-organized radio station (Radiozones of Subversive Expression). He thus undertook the political responsibility to impose censorship and stifle the expression and free movement of ideas of all those who resist the contemporary fascistization and social impoverishment. Simopoulos—being the second Rector of Repression after Markatos, 18 years ago—decided to be the one to intervene in place of the state power, and what’s more, he undertook the role of mouthpiece facilitating the work of the Repression minister Dendias, the cops and the Nazis.

Well-known Russian anti-fascist, Alexey Gaskarov, arrested in Moscow

April 30th, 2013

On Sunday, the 28th of April 2013, a well-known Russian anti-fascist, Alexey Gaskarov, was arrested in Moscow. He is a member of the Coordination Council of Russian opposition. The investigation committee of the Russian Federation has accused him of having pacticipated in riots and violence against representative of authorities on the 6th of May 2012, when OMON (Russian riot police) attacked a peaceful demonstration.

The 6th of May was one day prior to Putin’s inauguration, and a mass demonstration had been called by the opposition. The winter and spring of 2011-2012 saw the biggest wave of political demonstrations in Russia in almost 20 years, as tens of thousands of people went out on the streets to protest election fraud. The 6th of May was also the first time authorities moved to crush these protests. According to the opposition more than 600 people were arrested, and as of now 28 people have been charged, who have been remanded, been put under house arrest or have been forced to emigrate.

No peace for the defenders of commodity-society. Their security = a joke once again.

Enough uniformed bastards in our lives, let’s trash the control apparatus. Shouts to anti-fascist of action Jock Palfreeman, held in Bulgaria – love for our comrades, hate for their jailers.

Urgent Need for NATO 5 Support (USA)

April 28th, 2013

We are calling on comrades around the world to help raise awareness of the NATO 5 cases and support funds for the defendants on the one-year anniversary of their preemptive arrests. Between May 16 – 21, the one year anniversary of their arrests, plan a fundraiser, solidarity action, or just help spread the word in support of the NATO 5!

If you are unable to plan an entire event, you could always pass the hat at a meeting, or even help us promote our WePay.

While their lawyers are working pro bono, the NATO 5 require upwards of $30,000 for expert legal costs, court costs, data retrieval, etc. Any donation amount helps!

For more information, check out the information on the Week of Solidarity on our website: http://nato5support.wordpress.com/international-week-of-solidarity-with-the-nato-5/

Or go to our WePay: https://www.wepay.com/donations/nato-5-defense

In solidarity,
NATO 5 Defense Committee

Solidarity to Athens IMC and 98FM (Greece)

April 26th, 2013

The Greek regime’s attempt to silence the Athens Indymedia website and 98FM is yet another repressive attack against self-organised infrastructure that challenges the existent order. It’s no secret that democracy will use dictatorial solutions when confronted by the subversive libertarian forces.

Solidarity and complicity with Athens IMC, 98FM and all those spaces and individuals in Greece which refuse to just shut up and accept the dominant discourse of mainstream bullshit and corporate hype.

Athens: Our voices can neither be repressed, nor silenced

#J11: International Day of Solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marie Mason & Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners

April 26th, 2013

June 11th is the international day of solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marie Mason, and other longterm anarchist prisoners.

http://june11.org/

The state stole Eric McDavid and Marie Mason from us in 2006 and 2008 respectively. In the years since their arrests, repression has come to feel less like a specific event and more like an inescapable, ongoing nightmare. Sentenced to 22 years and 20 years, respectively, Marie and Eric remain in cages to this day, and know this nightmare more intimately than most.

Lately, we hear lots of talk about the end times, and total environmental collapse seems imminent. But what do these forces mean to those inside prison cells? And what do they mean for us on the outside? We are trying to save both each other and some shred of wildness on this earth. Our task is difficult, and sometimes seems impossible, because the harder we fight, the more repression we face. Every day we lose more species, more land, more friends… and this process shows no signs of slowing. How do we survive and continue to struggle in the face of this reality?

#J11: Carnival in the West End of London (UK)

April 26th, 2013

“11 June 2013. #J11.
One Common Struggle.
Carnival Against Capitalism.”

Their London?

London is right at the heart of global capitalism. And the West End of London, including elite areas like Piccadilly, Mayfair and Knightsbridge, is where power and greed are most concentrated. The West End is home to:

* Corporations. Many of the world’s most brutal and polluting companies, including oil and mining giants, arms dealers, and the businesses profiting from cuts and privatisation.
* Vulture funds. Global base of the “hedge fund” and “private equity” industries, laundering the world’s blood money to invest in war, food speculation and debt slavery.
* Tyrants. Government offices, embassies, cultural and commercial fronts of colonial powers and murderous regimes.
* Playground of the mega-rich. Middle Eastern dictators, Russian mafia oligarchs, and home-grown parasites all see London as a “safe” place to hide and spend their loot. Read the rest of this entry »

Updates on anarchist prisoners Nicola and Alfredo (Italy)

April 26th, 2013

From RadioAzione via Actforfree/B.pd

24th April 2013 – As preliminary investigations (415bis) came to an end on March 11 2013, Nicola and Alfredo will go on trial for 280bis (attack with purposes of terrorism), a proceeding also linked to the wounding of Ansaldo Nucleare manager Adinolfi, whose case (270bis) remains open for the two comrades plus another one.

No date has been fixed for the preliminary hearing for 280bis, as the prosecution has not yet submitted the transcripts of the missing environment bugging. After two delays requested by the court, these transcripts should be ready by June 5 (it seems that the experts can’t understand or transcribe Neapolitan dialect, which had sounded so clear to the judges from Genoa when it was used to corroborate the charges, according to the arrogant methods always employed to interpret environment bugging.)

John Bowden Back At Shotts Prison After A Stay In Hospital (UK)

April 22nd, 2013

John is now back at Shotts prison recovering from an operation to have a disc removed from his back, after being laid up in bed for two weeks with severe back pain. He’s still feeling quite weak and unsteady on his feet but hopefully he’s now on the mend. His recent hospitalisation meant he had a pile of mail waiting for him when he returned on Saturday 20th April. He thanks people for their letters and says he will answer them in due course.

You can send your wishes for a quick recovery to:

There will be a protest outside court.

The charges originally were squatting (under s144), obstruction (of the police in their lawful duty) and abstraction (ie stealing electricity). The abstraction charge has already been dropped.

‘Damiano Bolano’ FAI/FRI cell claim the parcel bombs sent to the daily La Stampa of Turin and the private investigation agency Europol of Brescia (Italy)

April 20th, 2013

OPERATION SPY-HUNT

We attacked ‘Europol Investigazioni’ with a parcel bomb. This agency, like many others, provides the forces of order with equipment such as microchips, micro-cameras and other technological wickedness, which the forces of order scrupulously place in houses, cars and other places familiar to comrades, rebels and any other individual enemy of the law and its hangmen.

In this way any single aspect of life and daily experience becomes material for enlarging investigation files and is examined by the servants in uniform with the intent to analyse them according to the standards of the penal code, and use them to take our freedom away and lock us up in the concentration camps of the state.

We believe it is time to break this malicious chain thanks to which many comrades are imprisoned today, and many others who continue to struggle with generosity and determination are compelled to cope with the constant risk of being intercepted and spied on. One thing must be clear to these collaborators of repression: if you help, no matter how, armed dominion do its job, you automatically join its ranks, with all the consequences that this entails.

Another parcel bomb was sent to the notorious shit paper known as ‘La Stampa’, always ready to corroborate the frame-ups of carabinieri and police, especially when they strike those who are at war against the state. We know even too well that repression would be less effective without the fundamental help of pennivendoli [word sellers, TN], and it is for this reason that we decided to make them pay for their responsibility once again. We are aware of the fact that ‘La Stampa’ is just one of the many newspapers of the regime, therefore any single pennivendolo is a possible target of our war against the state and society that supports it and legitimizes its existence every single day.

This action is meant to continue the campaign started by the comrades of the ‘Olga’ nucleus with the wounding of stinker Adinolfi, manager of Ansaldo. This time we chose the targets among those who provide dominion with the technological appendages necessary to repression. They are as responsible as Ansaldo for harmfulness and suffering.

We dedicate this action to the comrades locked up in the AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara: Sergio, Alessandro, Alfredo, Nicola, Peppe and Stefano; to the comrades imprisoned in Rebibbia: Elisa and Paola; to Marco Camenish, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, our Greek comrades of the CCF and Theofilos Mavropoulos. To all rebel anarchists locked up all over the world.

We hail the cells of FAI/FRI, by now so numerous, that attack dominion in all corners of the globe.

LONG LIVE FAI/FRI
LONG LIVE ANARCHY

An open letter of solidarity with all imprisoned freedom fighters and those under trial

April 19th, 2013

An open letter of solidarity with all imprisoned freedom fighters and those under trial!

I’m long past disappointment with black flags, books on theory in red covers and ideal utopias that never age. I’ve been asking “what next?” for quite some time now.
Everybody gets older, quits, sells his ideals of youth for comfort within the system. Nobody is ready to sacrifice his feeble status for freedom and utopian dreams. I don’t believe in anything anymore.

Belief won’t get us closer to freedom. What inspires me are your letters, comrades. Letters from those who had been violently put to cages of stone. You await letters from “outside” just as we wait for another letter from the “inside”. You are so many. Your dignified and uncompromised stance warms our hearts. That is why I dedicate these lines to you. Read the rest of this entry »

Athens IMC and 98FM radio station are under repression by the State (Greece)

April 17th, 2013

EXTERNALITY AND OBJECTIVITY

10/04/2013 – The Deanery of NTUA (National Technical University of Athens) loses the trial against EETT’s (Hellenic Telecommunications and Post Commission) lawsuit related to past broadcasting of Radiozones at 98.1 from the NTUA premises, as well as about the broadcasts of “Radio Entassi” that occasionally emits from an adjoining terrace near the frequency of the mainstream radio station “SKAI”. It’s another procedural repression attempt that is added to precedent persecutions against Athens Indymedia and Radiozones of Subversive Expression.

11/04/2013 – The Dean takes the initiative to cut the power supply to “Radio Entassi”. At the same time, the internet connection for both Athens Indymedia and Radiozones of Subversive Expression is interrupted despite the fact that Radiozones broadcast at 93.8 a frequency totally separated to the case file. How the lost court case on radio emissions has developed into the silencing of all online counter information media based on the NTUA campus remains unknown. Read the rest of this entry »
