CCF Escape case: Report about the inquisition – 6 March 2015 – Updated (Greece)

March 6th, 2015

UPDATED

As is known, the CCF imprisoned members are on hunger strike until death. Christos’ and Gerasimos’ mother and Gerasimos’ wife testified to the investigating judge on Tuesday, where they both denied the charge of being members of a “terrorist organization” (which is what they are charged with). The comrades’ mother only accepted the charge of “harboring a criminal”, and she was remanded by the counter-terror state. Gerasimos’ wife was also remanded the same day.

On March 4th, Christos Tsakalos wrote a political claim of his own, concerning the escape attempt, and Giorgos Polydoros published a text as well, as a personal friend of his brother was arrested (he was released along with the woman who was arrested on Saturday).

On March 5th, Aggeliki S. and the 39-year-old comrade Christos R. who was arrested in the neighbourhood of Galatsi on February 28th were demanded to testify. Aggeliki gave a statement saying she did not recognise the court and declared herself as anarchist. Aggeliki was then detained in Korydallos, and she had already began a hunger strike from the point of her arrest with the common aims of CCF. Christos R. also gave a statement, and was immediately remanded to Domokos Type C prison.

On March 6th, Christos Polydoros, brother of Giorgos, voluntarily went to the public prosecutor to speak against the repression of the family and friends of CCF, so the prosecutor vermin ordered his arrest. Currently, Christos Polydoros is being held by the anti-terrorist force in the Athens police headquarters [he is now released, 10 March].

Death to the police – Death to the state

Anarchist Panagiotis Mihalakoglou abstains from the prison meals (Greece)

March 5th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

In the war we are living, both inside and outside prison, and in the fight we are giving, no comrade is alone. As for the vindictiveness that the counter-terrorism unit and the special appellate investigators have shown to the relatives and the friends of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire members, the least I can do, being imprisoned, is to abstain from the prison meals.

SOLIDARITY IS OUR BIG WEAPON

NOTHING IS OVER, EVERYTHING CONTINUES

CCF Escape case: Statement of Giorgos Polydoros (Greece)

March 5th, 2015

The text was sent to mass media:

From the first moment, we have claimed responsibility for the escape plan from Korydallos prison, when it was uncloaked, we the 10 members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

The last five days, we see our relatives and their friends being dragged and being assailed, who have nothing to do with the case and, indeed, detaining the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the second one’s wife.

The accusation of involvement in [terrorist] organization, they are charged with by the counter-terrorism unit, is ridiculous and unsustainable. They’re calling a 60-year-old mother and the wife members [of CCF] and detain them, under the pretext that they’re suspected of fleeing. We are talking about people with permanent residences and who were visiting us in the visiting hours in prison. Who are the trashes of counter-terrorism unit fooling with? We are experiencing a moment where the counter-terrorism unit is doing whatever it wants and has gone beyond any limit of amorality, without giving an account to anyone. Its political enemies are us and not our relatives. If it wants to strike someone, let it strike us and leave the clowning aside.

We also know that today are the evaluations of police, so everyone understands what a dirty game is being played in the background and the show they have set, in order to get promotions.

From Monday 2/3, we all ten members of the Cells have begun a hunger strike until death, in order for the four relatives and their friends to be set free. They have nothing to do with our actions. They will either set them free, or let them prepare themselves to count the first dead political prisoners.

At the same time, we support the hunger strike taking place in prisons, for the abolition of the counter-terrorism law, the hood-law and the C’ Type prisons. The situation the counter-terrorism unit created for our families is the over-the-top consequence of the terror law and opens new doors.

CCF Escape case: Statement from Christos Tsakalos (Greece)

March 5th, 2015

The statement was sent to mass media:

These days we’re experiencing the ultimate triumph of the counter-terrorism unit’s state.

After supporting and setting an entire show with cameras showing arrested people with hoods on their heads being dragged up the GADA [counter-terror hq] stairs, it completed the coup with the detention of my mother and my brother’s wife.

And although yesterday we claimed full political and penal responsibility for the escape plan as Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, all of a sudden I hear that both my mother and my brother’s wife are detained.

Accidentally, it is the same day that the [neo-nazi political party] Golden Dawn members are released from prison. Moreover, accidentally, this afternoon there are the evaluations of the police*.

As in the world we live there aren’t that many coincidences but only expediencies, it is clear that there is an expediency game being played here.

Apart from the ridiculousness of the accusation against them and against the two personal friends of theirs, the accusation of the two detainees isn’t evaluated as necessary for their detention.

Their laws stipulate that: “Someone is to be detained only when judged that he is suspected of escaping or committing similar crimes”. What reasonable human being believes something like this, either about my mother, or about my brother’s wife?

What is taking place right now reminds one of the fascist state in Germany, in the 1970s, when, in order to avenge the RAF, it launched a pogrom against their relatives and their lawyers.

Back then, the German state counted the first dead hunger strikers.

Maybe someone wants to count the first dead hunger strikers here in Greece as well.

This is why we’re not going to end the hunger strike until death, unless our relatives and friends, who are testifying today, are released.

Christos Tsakalos

-

* Christos refers to the procedure of police officers being evaluated for their service.

Translator’s note: A female friend of Christos’ mother (accused of CCF membership) and Giorgos Polydoros brother’s friend have been set free with restrictive bail conditions.

Warsaw: Restaurant belonging to landlord enforcer scum Mossakowski attacked in the anniversary of the murder of Jola Brzeska (Poland)

March 5th, 2015

Communique after an attack on a restaurant of a well known Warsaw landlord enforcer.

Jolanta Brzeska was tenant movement activist from Warsaw, who was kidnapped and burned alive in a forest. The court dismissed the case for her murder.

more info here about her case in english
(https://jolabrzeska.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/jola-eng.pdf)

Communique:

Fuck off.
Get the fuck out away from this neighborhood, get the fuck out away from this city, fuck off to a forest. Burn yourself.

With Her, you also begun with threats.
This payment is symbolic, but think what we can afford to do, when we can’t afford anything.
Burgeoisie, cops, politicians, journalists – you are all guilty.
All this state is guilty.
But you pay first, old prick, SS-man of the gentryfication, Warsaw’s executioner.
We don’t give a fuck about your arrangements and connections, pals that get your back, bribes and mates.
You’re getting better in changing windows, but you will not hide your guilt.
You can wash the paint off your walls, but you will not clean your hands.
We take justice in our own hands.
On the bricks it was written JOLA.
You will see this word till the end of your days.
It will be branded under your eyelids.
Let it wake you up like an axe breaking the door in the middle of the night.
Let the stink of burning petrol never leave you, wherever you’ll go.
Remember the way your victims have looked at you.
Thousands of those looks are watching your every move.

Szkło ci w stek.

FUCK OFF!

War against ISIS/Daesh: Kobanê’s internationalist women fighters: 2015 must be the year of women (Kurdistan)

March 5th, 2015

KOBANÊ – Marxist women fighters from Turkey have called for all women to make 2015 the year of women.The women,who have fought alongside their Kurdish comrades to defend Kobanê and are now working in there construction, sent their greetings for March 8, International Working Women’s Day, to all the oppressed women and LGBTQI people in the world.

“Seeing 14, 15-year-old girls coming here wanting to defend their homeland affects you like you can’t believe,” said Ulrike Barbara of TİKKO (Liberation Army of the Workers and Peasants of Turkey). “I’ve been here for two months but I really regret not coming earlier.”

Ulrike had long been interested in women’s issues while she was in Turkey. She stressed the intimate link between the violence against women and minorities in Turkey and the attacks of rapist Daesh gangs against Kurdish women, carried out with the logistical support of the Turkish government.

Roza Kutlu of the MLKP (Marxist-Leninist Communist Party) said the Kobanê martyrdom of Sarya Özgür, a fellow MLKP fighter, was one of the factors that moved her to come here, but that Kurdish women fighters and martyrs had long been an inspiration for her. Now Arîn Mîrxan, the martyr who sacrificed herself to liberate the city, had become an inspiration for her and all her comrades.

“The resistance led by the YPJ here has been an example to us all,” said Rezzan Işık of the MLKP. “Women walk the streets with confidence here, with guns in their hands. They’ve made the heroic sacrifices on the front lines—women like Arîn Mîrxan, Sarya Özgür and Kader Ortakaya.”

She said these martyrs in the Kobanê resistance, giving their all against the rapist Daesh gang members, inspired her to fight for and defend herself. Now she has come here hoping to take part in the reconstruction process, saying she wanted to help build a woman’s city on the site where so many women gave their lives for freedom.

Combative prisoners on collective hunger strike as of March 2nd 2015 (Greece)

March 3rd, 2015

via contra-info:

On March 2nd 2015, combative prisoners launched a hunger strike in various Greek prisons. Their main demands are: the abolition of Article 187 (criminal organisation) and Article 187A (terrorist organisation) of the Greek Penal Code; of the “hoodie law” (acts committed with concealed physical characteristics); of the legal framework for Type C prisons; of the prosecutorial provision of forcible taking of DNA samples – and the immediate release from prison of Savvas Xiros (convicted for his participation in the R.O. 17 November) on health grounds.

So far, those who have joined the political prisoners’ mobilisation and collective hunger strike are three urban guerrillas incarcerated in the E1 wing of Domokos type C prison: Dimitris Koufontinas, Kostas Gournas, and Revolutionary Struggle member Nikos Maziotis – and five participants in the Network of Imprisoned Fighters (DAK): Antonis Stamboulos (Larissa prison), Tasos Theofilou (Domokos prison), Fivos Harisis, Argyris Ntalios and Giorgos Karagiannidis (Koridallos prison). The rest of the comrades who participate in the Network of Imprisoned Fighters will join the hunger strike in the coming days.

Furthermore, in the E1 wing of Domokos type C prison, Giorgos Sofianidis has been on hunger strike since February 27th, requesting the abolition of type C maximum security prisons, in addition to his immediate transfer to Koridallos prison in order to continue his studies – and as of today, March 2nd, Mohamed-Said Elchibah also went on a hunger strike.
