TYPE C’ PRISONS, THE ESCAPE ATTEMPT OF CCF, THE SCENARIOS ABOUT OSMOSIS BETWEEN CRIMINALS AND TERRORISTS AND THE JOURNALISTS’ CESSPOOL
We are not going to talk about how C’ type prisons are structured, how they were built or how they’re going to be improved. We will just say that they are not any kind of impenetrable barrier or some invincible beast. C’ type prisons are another act of war against the prisoners of war. They are the answer of the state against anarchists who haven’t bent down their heads, that every day hone the axe of war, who haven’t quit and haven’t delayed in action against the enemy. They are built for those who didn’t turn into “coffee shop guerrillas” or “imprisoned ideologists” towards repression. Besides, the state never spared these people. And the state’s monopoly of violence has always been broken only when the recipient of it disputed it through action.
ON THE CCF’s ESCAPE ATTEMPT
On January 4th, there was an escape from Korydallos prison planned by the members of CCF. The previous day, the cops disrupted the escape, for which they admit that it was one of the most perfectly organized hits of the last decades. (more…)

On January 16th 2015, an invasion of EKAM police officers [anti-terrorist unit] and other repressive forces took place and they carried out searches in our fellow prisoners’ cells. This is why our midday yard time did not happen and we remained locked all day. A few days ago, during the lunch time on New Year’s Eve, the initial transfer of prisoners was ordered so that the Greek Guantanamo bay of Domokos could be be inaugurated (although on this specific day transfers don’t regularly take place), playing this way their dirty electoral game on our backs. On Saturday January 3rd, after an invasion and investigation by the EKAM, our fellow prisoners and members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Christos Tsakalos and Gerasimos Tsakalos, were kidnapped in the night and transferred to the isolation-basement of the women’s Korydallos prison. After all this, we decided to mobilize and as a first reaction we refused to be locked back in our cells in the midday, until Saturday January 24th 2015. In the following days, we are going to escalate our actions if necessary. We are going for:
1) The abolition of the ‘C’ type prisons.
2)The return of all those already transferred to the ‘C’ type prison in Domokos, and the return of our fellow prisoners Gerasimos Tsakalos and Christos Tsakalos from the isolation wing of the women’s prison of Korydallos, back to the prison they were in.
3) During this rebellion, we’re not going to accept any more transfers to the ‘C’ type prisons. We will consider every such act as revenge against our struggle and we are going to react accordingly.
When will Koutsimichali, the Director of Korydallos prison, and the prosecutors Poimenidis and Marsioni stop allowing these unlawful criminal acts? Are they ignorant of the prisoners torture or are they aiming for it?
Let everyone take their responsibilities.

Friday, January 16th 2015, police officers of the Blackmail Department accompanied by EKAM [anti-terrorist agency], invade the cells where the members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire are held, both in A’ wing, and the basement of the isolation wings (for the 2nd time within 10 days, after the 1st invasion of the same agency). During the searches that followed, they seized phone agendas, calling cards, USB sticks and personal handwritten political notes. The proposition was the ridiculous police–media fabrication which presents our organization to have connections with the so-called ‘night circles’ of extortion. These myths aim to depoliticize and smear the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and the circles of Black Anarchy. We shall clear up the obvious. Our code of values and our rebellious anarchist consciousness are opposed and hostile to that of organized crime and Mafia practices. Besides, the real organized crime rests in the centers of the State and the police. Beyond that, we neither apologize, nor regret our friendships. For days now, journalists, at the behest of the police, use our friendly relations, targeting our friend Vasilis Stefanakos [i], in order to present the fabrication of the “terrorists-criminals” osmosis and create new case files. We are going to defend this friendship of ours in every way, because it doesn’t fit into labels of “terrorists” nor “criminals”, which are given to us by the courts and the reports. This specific friend, like other long-term convicts who are mentioned in the news as so-called collaborators of ours, have NOTHING to do with the planned escape attempt. These ridiculous scenarios about the connection of the Cells of Fire with organized crime are trying to soil the obvious beauty of the comrades’ attempt to break the shackles of captivity.
What’s more beautiful than a prison exploding…
What’s uglier than a lie which is believed not even by its instigators…
What’s more obvious than vengeance…

Complicidad y solidaridad más allá de los idiomas, banderas y fronteras.
Con el comienzo del año y aprovechando las celebraciones, el gobierno griego dio comienzo a un proceso de traslado de prisionerxs hacia la Cárcel de tipo C de Domokos, con el claro objetivo de aislar a lxs prisionerxs en guerra e intentar amainar la lucha anárquica que cada día se intensifica en las calles y dentro de los siniestros muros de las prisiones.
El primer prisionero trasladado fue el compañero anarquista Nikos Maziotis miembro de Lucha Revolucionaria a lo que rápidamente de sumaron Dimitris Koufontinas, miembro de la organización 17 Noviembre, Kostas Gournas miembro de Lucha Revolucionaria, Yannis Naxakis y Grigoris Sarafoudis, condenados por atraco a mano armada y por supuesta participación en las CCF.

It was 3rd of January when after a wide operation of anti-terrorist police, the wanted comrade Ch.Xiros was arrested in the region of Anavissos. At the same time, there was detected a hideout in the same region. After a stake-out of this property cops discovered a large amount of ammunition and firearms (8 Kalashnikovs, 1 RPG, 3 rockets, hundreds of bullets, more than 150 kilos of explosives etc.), drawings regarding an escape plan of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire members and a fake ID of comrade Angeliki. (who was visiting members of CCF in prison). The very same night EKAM (special forces of anti-terrorist police) and officers of anti-terrorist police raided all the cells of CCF members in prison, and the comrades Christos Tsakalos and Gerasimos Tsakalos, as well as the comrades Spiros Mandilas and Andreas Tsavdaridis, were transferred to a solitary confinement wing in a dungeon under Korydallos prison where there are no other prisoners.
In the next days, the anti-terrorist police declares comrade Angeliki is a fugitive and starts an intense man-hunt for her arrest (after giving her photo in publicity through all TV channels), and they discover another safehouse in the region of Loutraki where they found dozens of ready-made bombs, a gun, and two stolen vehicles (1 jeep and 1 van).
The Minister of Public Order and the Chief of Police are making official statements announcing that police managed to prevent an escape plan of the members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. According to this announcement, some comrades would attack and blow up the outside wall of the prison wing that members of CCF were held in, with a mega-bomb of 150 kilos of explosives put in a trapped vehicle (stolen van) and with the Kalashnikovs and the RPG would strike armed guards at the guard-houses of the prison.
After that, they would escape with CCF members in stolen vans which they intended to change with other stolen vehicles during the route of escape with the safehouses as destinations.
The imprisoned members of CCF published two texts (“It was worth a try“, “Communique of War“) in which they express their solidarity with comrade Angeliki and they closed with the phrase “Nothing is over…. Everything continues.”

Kalamata, southern Peloponnese: According to the reports of the corporate media, on Tuesday 13th January 2015, two men, a 37 year old Albanian, and a 54 year old Greek national were arrested in an armed car stop by the anti-terrorist police. The 37 year old Albanian is accused of renting the Anavyssos house that comrade Christodoulos Xiros was arrested near, and where a number of Kalashnikovs, pistols, explosives, documents and a rocket launcher were found. The Greek national is a retired former member of EKAM, the Greek anti-terrorist unit. According to the arrest warrant, the men are suspected of belonging to a terrorist group; committing acts of terror; building, procuring and possessing explosives and possessing illegal firearms. The two men went before the public prosecutor the next day and denied the charges.

On Monday, 12/01, in the afternoon, anarchist comrades Spyros Mandylas and Andreas Tsavdaridis were released as the 18-months pre-trial detention that was imposed on them has finally ended. We remind that the comrades were arrested on 12/07/2013 and are accused of being members of the anarchist guerrilla group the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and for the shipping of a parcel bomb to the former commander of anti-terrorist agency, Dimitris Xorianopoulos, which took place in July 2013 and was carried out by Commando “Mauricio Morales”-FAI/IRF, as part of the “Phoenix” project (act 4), an attack which Andreas has claimed responsibility for. We welcome with great joy our comrades back to the streets of continuous insurrection.

Comrade Christodoulos Xiros is transferred to Domokos – International solidarity to the wanted in connection to the CCF escape case (Greece)
Sunday, January 11th, 2015
Friday 09/01/15 – Unrepentant comrade Christodoulos Xiros, of the R.O – 17 November, who was captured by anti-terrorist police after a stake-out of a property in Anavyssos, has been transferred from Korydallos prison, Athens, to Domokos. This prison has been converted into a new high security maximum isolation ‘Type C prison’ for the annihilation of the imprisoned urban guerrillas and the nonconforming prisoners. The comrade remains strong, as can be evidenced by his words and in the photos of his appearances in public before the prosecutor-rat who gave him his charges. Christodoulos refuses to cooperate in any way with the judicial authorities and maintains his armed revolutionary principles and irreducible stance against oppression and the capitalist system.
Amongst other charges, Christodoulos is accused of forming and leading an ‘unnamed terrorist organisation’, which had gathered explosives and firearms for an assault against Korydallos prison to free the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire / FAI-IRF – Imprisoned Members Cell. Since the last report published here, another safe-house has been announced found by anti-terrorist police in Loutraki where they seized 2 stolen vehicles, many kilos of explosive materials and other items. No comrades were inside when the hideout was raided. From data recovered by the pigs they believe the breakout of the comrades would have lead to a new wave of organised attacks against all institutions and structures of the Type C prisons and those responsible for them. Judges, politicians, prison guards and managers, industrialists and bankers… all those responsible for the misery of the existent.
The pigs are now looking for a third safe-house they believe to exist in an urban area, and are making an Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) and forensic investigation of the Loutraki property whilst processing the results of the DNA and fingerprint evidence found in the first house in Anavyssos. The pigs declare that the Kalashnikovs and the pistols found in Anavyssos were ‘clean’ and had not been used in any of the recent armed actions in Athens, mentioning the armed attack which took place against the Israeli Embassy on 12 December 2014 by Popular Fighters Group and the armed attack on the German ambassador’s residence in 2013 that the same group took responsibility for. Also found on Mount Egaleo was a stolen vehicle that police claim was to be used in the Korydallos breakout as a getaway vehicle.
Also in connection to the case, Gerasimos Tsakalos, Christos Tsakalos (imprisoned members of the CCF), Andreas Tsavdaridis (Member of FAI) and anarchist Spyros Mandylas, who remain held hostage in Korydallos prison, have been removed from A-Wing, and put in the dungeon under the Women’s Wing, which was formally used to detain members of 17 November. It’s been reported that this was because of their closeness to comrade Angeliki who is clandestine. It is expected that the imprisoned comrades will soon be transferred to Domokos and the authorities are scared of reprisals or sudden retributions.
2 comrades are fugitives after having been named in the mainstream media as being intensely hunted in connection to the CCF escape plan, and naturally the mainstream media slime, guided by the anti-terrorist unit, are printing filthy propaganda through speculative tabloid hypothesis and leering about the case, feeding their hunger for sensationalist delirium at the election period. Alongside, the journalists compare the attempted escape to the terrorism spectacular conjured by a cell of Islamic-fascists at the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris. In this way, they smear the clear objectives of the new combatants and those who joined them from the last generation of armed struggle for freedom. This is what the media industry is for. To keep people distracted and smug in a drivel of banality, tits, terror, consumerism and fantasy.
Charlie Hebdo’s editor-in-chief Gerard Biard has told France Inter, “A newspaper is not a weapon of war”, but he could not be further from the truth. The Press has always been a weapon of war owned by incredibly powerful individuals, who with their editors and corporate allies form cartels who control and manipulate the flow of information and opinion in order to maintain a system of privilege over the masses of people and all those who fight against that corrupt and parasitic system. Without needing to repeat more or reference the content of such hysteria and at a time of widespread nationalistic-liberal delirium, spell-binding illusions are only of benefit to Power, which weeps crocodile tears for the victims of the massacre in Paris, and we remind that all journalists are not actually fighters for freedom or humour, many are the same disgusting pieces of shit that they have always been. We remember the deserved fate of lackeys to industry, like “Journalist” Sokratis Giolias. In many offices across Europe and beyond, a more fitting end couldn’t come to them.
The imprisoned comrades must get out of the prisons by any means and the Type C prisons and the regime which implements them must be attacked. Several generations of combatants cannot be left alone to become the trophies of Power. Solidarity means to keep things together, to keep things solid. Attacks keep the struggle solid. They prevent the fire being lost in the stagnation of modern life. Armed struggle is a valid choice in the revolutionary and insurrectional war against the existent. The criminals and the terrorists are those of the State and Capital, who have polluted the environment and ruined the earth, impoverished billions of people and who plan unparalleled domination and rule by the elite.
Nothing is over – Everything continues…
Solidarity to Christodoulos Xiros and all wanted comrades in connection to the case

Korydallos Prisons: ‘Communique of War’ by Conspiracy of Cells of Fire / FAI-IRF – Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

“First I shot him in the mouth to stop him talking crap;
then I shot him in the arm to stop him writing crap”
Jacques Mesrine on the kidnapping of a French journalist
The dirty war and the vulgarity of the journalists in regards to the case of the attempted escape of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire has no end. Targeting comrade Angeliki, emotionally blackmailing her parents, and spreading vile lies about her alleged relationship as a girlfriend of the one who has been arrested.
Angeliki is a friend of rebellion, anarchy, freedom.
If there were more people like Angeliki, struggle and anarchy would be the only possible reality.
SCUMBAGS SNITCHES JOURNALISTS – WE WILL TAKE REVENGE.
SOLIDARITY AND POWER by any means possible to comrade Angeliki and to all those wanted in connection to the same case.
The Cells will always stand by you…

At the moment, there is no information about the rest of the comrades of C.C.F. concerning if and when they are going to be transferred as well.
The post will be updated as the situation develops.

Inter Arma received and translated:
We will not give away a single word that would unlock information for the enemy. Escaping from prison is the only aim and purpose of a captive anarchist urban guerrilla. The word “escape” holds the concentrated sense of freedom which blows up the walls of prison that locked our lives. We, the captive anarchists of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, have never forgotten this word even if though most have forgotten us. The judges have condemned us to live for years as human shadows inside the locked buildings, but they have never been able to lock up our unruly desires.
Every night in the wanderings of our minds we escape into a world without prisons, armed guards and locked souls. And even if every morning the guard’s key brings us back to the concrete reality of prison, we know that at some point our day will come and we will dream of our anarchy with open eyes. The sound of the lock as it closes forges our hatred for prison. Every failure, every arrest, every mistake makes us even more stubborn. If we fall three times, we will rise four.
There is no victory or defeat, there is only struggle. We know that the anarchist urban guerrilla and the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire is a battle against all odds. In this battle weapons, explosives, hideouts, cars, money, may be lost but all of them can be found again. What is not lost are the comrades who made us feel that our day would come and we would say “goodbye” to prison without return. (more…)

Text from the comrades concerning the creation of an assembly of solidarity and action with the political prisoners.- english text
Texte des camarades concernant la création d’un ensemble de solidarité et d’action avec les prisonniers politiques.- texte français
i) C’ Type prisons – an act of war
C’ Type prisons wish to become the monument of the State’s victory against the urban guerrilla warfare. It is a bet for us, if we’re going to let a thousand tonnes of concrete, bars and locks beat the human will for freedom, a bet which is to be answered through action by the enemies of the regime and the friends of freedom.
For years now, politically, TV personalities of the system and salaried pen-holders of the police, have engaged in a mud fight against the urban guerrilla warfare, aid at depoliticizing it. “Osmosis of criminals and terrorists”, “cooperation between terrorists and organized crime”, “revolutionary pool” are the vanguard of the lie. Propaganda wishes to hide, covering with its mud, the self-evident constant revolt. A constant revolt of the ones who refuse to live as slaves and attack with arms against the leaders, the silence, the conservatism and the resignation of the majority of society.
Wishing to decouple the possible perspective of the violent insurrectionary action and to mutilate its diffusion, power uses lies and slander in order to present the armed urban guerrillas as insane criminals. And all this, at the same time when their bloodthirsty democracy makes thousands of people commit suicide and poisons every moment of our lives through the terrorism of poverty, repression, a police state, loneliness, exploitation, while it tricks the naive ones through the fake freedom of consumption, spectacle, mass entertainment, digital reality and the civilization of the mediocre. The highlight of the political propaganda against the urban guerrilla warfare was set up early in 2014, after the escape of Christodoulos Xiros on prison leave, who instead of coming back to prison voluntarily, chose the path of illegality and complicity with the new urban guerilla warfare. Headlines and reportage with catchy titles like “New Year’s terror-eve with the CCF”, “prisons are safe houses of terrorists” became the flagship of lies. What bothered power most, together with the escape of comrade Christodoulos Xiros, was that despite our arrests, we have never turned into dormant trophies in the hands of our wardens. For the unrepentant urban guerrillas, prison is not a palace of fear, it is a place of captivity that digs in and tempers more the willingness for rebellion and freedom. (more…)

Text by Nikos Maziotis, of Revolutionary Struggle, for the creation of a Solidarity Assembly (Greece) / Schaffung einer Solidaritätsversammlung (Griechenland)
Sunday, December 28th, 2014
Text below from Nikos Maziotis, member of Revolutionary Struggle, to the open assembly of Anarchists / Anti-authoritarians against the specific Type C conditions of detention, Maziotis proposes the creation of a solidarity meeting for all political detainees and prisoners-fighters. At the same time it is an open call to all comrades and companions of the anarchist / anti-authoritarian domain to participate and support this endeavour.
In the short term the date and location where the first meeting to explore possibilities to set up the Solidarity Assembly will be announced.
The text is sent to all political detainees and imprisoned fighters.
Comrades – companions, this text addresses you concerning Type C prisons, and my proposal for the creation of a meeting as concerns the issue of solidarity.
Comrades – companions, the passing of legislation of the Type C prisons are an expected development in the repressive attack of the State against the armed Revolutionary Organizations and against armed direct action. Subsequently, the legislative changes and reforms that have been under way for about 14 years are directly linked to the political and economic conditions, applicable for years internationally, and none other than the “war on terror” and the neoliberal reforms intended to impose the dictatorship of the markets, and its doctorate of supranational capital.
As Revolutionary Struggle, since the beginning of our activities in 2003, I believe that we properly analyzed the political and economic conditions in the early nineties when we started our activities, conditions relating to the globalization of the capitalist system. Both the “war on terror” launched in 2001 following the attacks on the United States, and the neoliberal reforms that conduced and were designed by the dictatorship of transnational capital is not only the economic and civilian-relevant nature of globalization. The system, therefore, in order to impose the dictatorship of markets proceeds at an increasingly harder crackdown as it tends to become more and more totalitarian.
In Greece, the same year [of 2001] the Greek economy was opened up to transnational capital after the so-called scandal of 1999. The stock market integration in EMU, in the Eurozone in 2002. It is therefore no coincidence that at the same period, even to lag behind Western Europe and the US, the Greek State proceeding to legislate the first anti-terrorism law in 2001, the law drawn up by Stathopoulos [Minister of Justice].

INTERVISTA CCF/ALFREDO COSPITO
From the Greek prisons to AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara: a few words of “freedom”.
Interview by CCF to myself.
Before answering your questions, I’ d like to stress that what i’ m about to say is my own truth. One of the many points of view, sensitivities and individual nuances within that crucible of thought and action that goes under the name of Fai-Fri.
Informal federation that, rejecting any hegemonic temptation, represents a tool, a method of one of the components of anarchism of praxis. Anarchism of praxis that only when it is informal, without being forced into organizational structures (specific, formal, of synthesis) when it doesn’t seek the unbearable consent (therefore rejects politics) it can be recognized in a wider chaotic universe called “black international”.
To understand this better, Fai-Fri is a methodology of action that only some of the sisters and brothers of the black international practice, it’ s not an organization nor a simple collective signature, but a tool that aims towards efficiency, whose objective is to reinforce cells and each comrade of praxis through a pact of mutual support based on three key points: revolutionary solidarity, revolutionary campaigns, communication between groups or individuals:
Each group of action in the Anarchist Informal Organization is engaged in showing revolutionary solidarity to comrades who are arrested or are on hiding. This solidarity will show itself mainly through armed action and the attack against men and structures responsible for the imprisonment of comrades. Solidarity will always be practiced as an indispensable feature of anarchist way of life and action. Of course we do not refer to legal and technical support: bourgeois society offers a sufficient number of lawyers, social workers and priests, which means that revolutionists can be engaged in another kind of activities.

In the link there is a new version of the map of the FAI/IRF attacks for publishing just by name for start. Sorry if by mistake something is missing.
Our souls and hearts with the fighters inside and outside prison.

325 was sent links to the following brochure in three languages (German, English and Greek):
A version in German was printed and is being distributed around. In some places for free or to buy. We reproduce the brochure links here in the aim of spreading the praxis of the incendiary nihilist-anarchist tendency in Greece and abroad.
Freedom for the imprisoned comrades
Wednesday, October 15th, 2014
When a door closes behind you, another opens ahead. That is how we felt when the door of the prison opened, closing the door on the era when we were free…
A new world appeared before us. A world narrow and built of concrete, where good day and good night are abolished.
Prison is a shadow apart in the transparent galley of democracy. Here, time is uncountable and days push slowly against each other, melancholically, indifferent, mechanical. Here, the seasons of the year die within a calendar hung on the wall, and nostalgia takes its revenge, disinterring memories, emotions, loved ones, sceneries and thoughts that never materialized into praxis.
But the wolf that exists within us stays awake and hungry. All these days, all these months, all these years we feed it with thoughts, desires, concerns, plans, rage, and it swallows the bars, the barbed wire, and the locks to run free again some unknown day.

A new pamphlet concerning the Phoenix Project has been released by the comrades of the Circle of Individualist Anarchists which includes transcriptions of the four events held nationwide in solidarity with the persecuted comrades for the actions of the Project which took place recently in Greece.
This is the first of a series of pamphlets regarding the ‘New Anarchy’ which will be released over the coming months which will ‘aim to disseminate our imprisoned comrades speech to as many anarchist comrades in Greece and the rest of the world as possible. This material is available to everyone for translation in any language, a procedure in which we will contribute ourselves, in collaboration with any comrade who wishes for it, in the context of partnership with individuals and groups/collectives with which we are politically associated.’ (more…)
