“Fear first nests in our souls and then raises the walls of its prisons” – A communique by CCF about prisons (Greece)
Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014
Inter Arma received from C.C.F. – Imprisoned Members Cell and translated:
A provocation… The flight of Christodoulos Ksiros from prison and his return to the armed struggle.
Many lies… The tv monologue, which describes how things inside prison are, making them look like a movie. “Terrorists who run things in prison…”
“The members of CCF are bossing prison guards around”
“Terrorists celebrate new year’s Eve and plan a prison escape.”
The enemy… The contruction of a prison inside prison codenamed “maximum security prison, type C”.
A truth… All of the world’s locks are not enough to imprison our unfaltering decision to remain enemies of authority until the end…
i. Propaganda becomes practice
In recent months, journalists, as owners of the only truth, following the commands of authority, created a teriffying atmosphere. A television script of “truth”, that talked about “bloodthirsty terrorists” and which was enriched with a provocative bounty of four million euros for every aspiring snitch, who would contribute to the arrest of the wanted persons. Behind that ommunicative tide of lies, the truth of repression made its appearance.
Propaganda is followed by action…
The police campaign started with dozens of evasions in the houses of comrades and other individuals of the anarchist movement. At the same time, the terror hysteria had already thrived and the time was right to test the proposition of starting the first Greek Guantanamo. A Guantanamo, which authority firstly seeks to apply in Domokos prison, then in every prison and then everywhere, in the streets, in the city squares, into the people’s brains and souls. Because that is the target, indeed.

Today, the imprisoned member of CCF, Mihalis Nikolopoulos, stood trial for beating, in the misdemeanor court of Evelpidon.
He was sentenced to three years of imprisonment, after he insulted the judges, telling them to shove the “mitigating circumstances” up their asses. Additionally, he was prosecuted for insulting the judges. He was transferred to the police precinct in Kypseli, where he refused to let them take his pictures and to give them his fingerprints, which resulted in him being prosecuted for disobedience. His trial was postponed and a new hearing for these new prosecution will be set in the future.

At the 6th of January the anti-terrorist unit announced that Christodoulos Xiros violated his 7th temporary permission to exit prison for a few days and that he escaped. Christodoulos Xiros is a member of the Marxist organization 17th November (an organization active for 27 years having claimed responsibility for 23 executions of cops, judges, journalists, politicians, American agents, dozens of explosions and attacks with rockets and he has sentenced to six times lifelong plus 1000 years to prison.
The anti-terrorist unit had the journalists say that Christodoulos Xiros co-operate for his escape with the imprisoned members of conspiracy of cells of fire. They had specific references that Christodoulos has found shelter at a safe house of unarrested members of CCF.
In the context of the anti-terrorist propaganda of media has unleashed an attack against the cell of imprisoned members of CCF. (more…)

“Let’s become dangerous… for the diffusion of the Black International” – Communique by CCF: Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)
Thursday, January 16th, 2014
Starting from somewhere – Scattered remarks
To begin, we want to share our joy with you . The joy we feel because as we write, we feel, that despite being locked inside the walls of captivity, a part of us is out there free along with you, discussing, doubting and planning new sabotages against the authority of the social apparatus.
Of course, this could never have happened if it wasn’t for the valuable contribution of comrades who keep us informed about the international experimentations of new anarchy and strive to translate our texts.
So, the following notes come from a series of discussions we had inside the CCF Imprisoned Members Cell, on the occasion of the international gathering in Mexico.
The thoughts we want to share during this meeting are not some kind of an official view. As anarcho-nihilists, we do not believe in any absolute and objective truth. On the contrary, we want to set a starting point. One more challenge for thought, experimentation and onset towards the sharpening of the anarchist insurrection. This continous search of theory and praxis keeps anarchy alive and dangerous, far from ideological stiffnesses. (more…)

‘I want Comrades, not the mob…’ by the imprisoned members of CCF, plus Andreas Tsavdaridis and Spyros Mandylas (Greece)
Friday, October 25th, 2013
In Italy, on 30th October, our two brothers, Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, are going on trial, accused for the gunshots against a high-profile business executive of a nuclear company. The attack was claimed by the Olga cell-FAI/IRF.
I know people… people silent and chatty,
coward and audacious, humble and arrogant…
People, who live obediently, like sheep and others,
who lurk treacherously, like hyenas.
I know people who dream without fantasy
and others, who live without dreaming… people, whose eyes
are used to staring low and whose ears
are used to taking orders “wake up”, “work”,
“pay”, “buy”, “believe”, “comply”…
People from the lonely crowd, who patiently wait
in the line of life… for the eternal tomorrow,
for the better days, the optimistic future, the answers to their prayers…
They are waiting to believe in every prospective savior
and in any conman of thought, who will promise them a better life.
But those, who wait to live a better tomorrow,
are today, already dead.
I know people, but only a few of them are my comrades.
Slow Death or Insurrection here and Now…
These are the two paths, that unravel before us.
We choose to be there, where the strong ones dare.
The air is cleaner and the crowd, which bows before its false idols,
doesn’t ugly our aesthetics.
It is nice to look down from the mountain Peak of the Unique
even if the crowd secretly wishes for you to fall into the abyss
in order for it, not to be ashamed of its short stature.
Our words, carve today like a blade
and our actions burn the bridges with yesterday…
With tenacity and will, until we murder authority.
For Nicola and Alfredo.
For the Anarchists of Praxis.

Phoenix Project #6: Parcel bomb arrives for Dimitris Mokkas, chief prosecutor in the CCF case (Greece)
Tuesday, October 8th, 2013
Translated by the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire
PHOENIX PROJECT #6
“EAT THE JUDGES”
Once again we meet in the Fire, with old and new comrades, determined to overthrow the police estimations which wanted us to be a closed chapter of an ended story. The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire is a never-ending story. It is the inner flame that burns within us, it is the Phoenix which is born from its ashes again and again… it is the Fire of Refusal and Nihilism which cry “I cannot stop, I cannot be burnt, no one can put me out.”
About a month ago, both our brothers Andreas and Spiros were arrested in Thessaloniki accused of sending a parcel bomb to the former commander of the Anti-terrorist force. There is no need for many words. Brothers remember that the sun will continue to rise for all of us whose homeland is the New Anarchy. The Phoenix is born from it own ashes and continues to mock the silence of the cowards, providing Promethea’s fire to the eternal insurgents.
Thus, the sending of the trapped parcel bomb to inquisitor Mokkas is a first minimum and reflective response. It is the answer that for us the only way to escape is to set fire to the reformist defence positions and to proceed to attack first again.
Moreover, Damianos, Panagiotis, Theofilos, Christos, Haris, Giorgos.P, Giorgos, Michalis, Olga, Gerasimos, namely the ten brothers and sister of the CCF, all of who are already being held in captivity with double, triple and quadruple sentences that even surpasses the 36 months, are now persecuted by the prosecuting circles with the charge of inciting.
Dimitris Mokkas is exclusively entrusted with cases related to “terrorism” on Greek territory. Which means exclusively our organization. The career of this slimy object does not have any differences from that of any typical juridical officer. Faint hearted little people which evolved into justice officials in order to satisfy their own complexes. This specific clown did a bit better in than other worms of the appellate court in kissing his superiors ass. His vanity to get a higher position was satisfied. Now he is in charge of calls, interrogations and detentions, always with a vengeful smile on his mouth. The peak of his ridiculousness and cowardice was the postponement of the detention of our comrade of the CCF Gerasimos Tsakalos a few hours before the expiry date, above his bed, while he was also going through his 23rd day on hunger strike.
For all this that he has done we decided to also send him our own revenge gift. Of course, not to the glass tower of the appellate, where with the attitude of a thousand cardinals behind his office he signs the shitty legal papers against our brothers and sister, but sending our parcel to his personal residence, where he feels safe. We know that all these scumbags, such as Mokkas, after their sacred duty to hold captive the lives of dozens of people, go back to the warmth of their own home, pretending to be an honourable husband and parent. Thus, we followed the specific target, located his house and chose to send the parcel bomb there. In this way we sent him our performance signed the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
It is a fact that there is an insolence in this sector in the previous years. Parody trials sentencing people to dozens of years in prison with no evidence. Repeated detentions deprive freedom from whoever the cops consider a problem. And we are not just talking about armed guerillas. It is a tactic founded with anti-terror laws and is now used openly in dozens of cases. For all this insolence are responsible also all those who are released from prison and forget the big words of revenge against judges and prosecutors. Prisons therefore are also full with people who although feel wronged from the decisions of this sector, never transform this dissatisfaction into rage and rage into action.
Let this attack become an invitation for such acts of revenge, to all, inside and out of the prison walls, who have experienced the rot of juridical authority. It is not something unattainable. There are hundreds of juridical workers. They do not guard themselves, and it is not that hard to find them. Lets all attack them with whatever everyone can. From beatings and arsons up to bombs and executions. Only in this way will they understand there is a war. And if they do not understand, surely we will feel better that we avenged these inquisitors of justice. As for those inside the walls, the only decent attitude towards these scumbags is the discrediting of this farce called a trial. Let alone, when we speak of hostage revolutionaries and special terror trials.
With this attack we want to send our friendship and respect to our imprisoned brothers and sisters in Latin America. To dignified comrades Freddy Fuentivilla, Marcelo Villaroel and Juan Vega, who are accused in “caso security”. The three comrades participated in the armed struggle against the state of Chile in the 80s and 90s. Now they are in prison accused of bank robberies and the execution of a cop during a shoot out.
We also dedicate it to unrepentant comrade Jose Miguel Sanchez Jimenez. An urban guerilla who continued his struggle after the fall of the junta in Chile, because as he wrote “i do not believe in their democracy”.
Also to anarchist vegan Braulio Arturo Duran Gonzalez, who is in prison in Mexico accused of attacks on ATMs.
To Hans Niemeyer who is accused of subversive action and attacks on symbols of authority. The Chilean state bailed him under house arrest. Hans, broke his bail though, escaping into clandestinity. Unfortunately, a few months ago he was arrested and imprisoned.
To our brother Henry Zegarrando, who is accused by the Bolivian state for attacks of FAI-Bolivia which took place in the country’s territory a while ago. Henry, was transferred from prison to special regime of house arrest.
As well we send our warmest greetings to our recently released brothers Mario Lopez, Ivan and Carlo. And of course a big hug which will hide from the cops our wanted friend and comrade Felicity Ann Ryder, for whom an arrest warrant has been put out for her in Mexico.
The Black International of Anarchists of Praxis through the FAI-IRF, is everywhere. In the imprisoned comrades, the wanted anarchists, the anarchists fighters of the streets.
This is why we want our voice and fires to travel to the other side of the globe, to far Indonesia, strengthening the actions of our brothers and sisters, in the FAI cells there. Recently, the cells of FAI-Indonesia, besides attacks against the system, carried out a campaign of counter-information concerning the execution of four prisoners by the special forces of the police. The four young prisoners were accused of a clash which took place in a bar and during which they killed a cop of the police special forces. A bit after their imprisonment there was a night time raid in the prisons where they executed the four prisoners in their cell, with kalashnikovs.
The comrades in Indonesia are not alone… All together, anarcho-individualists, nihilists, chaotics, we meet there where the new anarchy becomes practice. We want to meet through our actions and experiment with the diffuse of the Informal Anarchist Federation FAI. To mock the police control, become more dangerous, support the international anarchist solidarity and attack for it. That’s why -just like fire unites us- we share the same joy for an anarchist attack as well as the sadness for a captivity or death of a comrade.
Concluding, we would like to dedicate a few words to those who the echo of attack makes them feel the desire of action. We therefore send a guerilla signal of fire to the comrades of anarchist steki Nadir in Thessaloniki, which was once again the target of oppression. Towards a “movement” where the plague of reformism and communism is spreading constantly in order to completely take it over, anarchist steki Nadir, with all of its possible contradictions, remains an annoying reminder which says that “anarchy is not a product for sale on the ideological shelves of the supermarkets of the ‘veterans’ of the ‘movement’, but it is insurrectionist violence in the street… ”
Finally, we know that our comrades in Indonesia a few months ago dealt with a loss. Their, and our, brother Ryo, was stabbed to death in a clash. Their loss is our loss. This is why we decided to call the cell of the Conspiracy which sent the parcel bomb to the inquisitor, “Ryo” cell, as a token of honour and remembrance to the comrade who was killed…
Today the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire is reborn from its ashes, promoting The Phoenix Project. New cells of the Conspiracy are ready to unleash themselves into the new anarchist urban guerilla warfare. And to those reformist anarchists who slander us saying that our methods seem more more mafia-like, it’s only because they start to resemble leftist hippies…
WE CREATE CELLS OF FAI-IRF EVERYWHERE
FOR THE DIFFUSE OF THE ANARCHIST URBAN GUERILLA
STRENGTH and SOLIDARITY to ANARCHIST STEKI NADIR
STRENGTH and SOLIDARITY to the new nihilists, the anarchists of Praxis, the chaotics of Refusal, the armed minorities

In mid-July 2013 ten members of the CCF-FAI/FRI (Olga Ekonomidou, Damianos Bolano, Charis Chatzimichelakis, Giorgos Polydoros, Panagiotis Argirou, Theofilos Mavropoulos, Christos Tsakalos, Gerasimos Tsakalos, Giorgos Nikolopoulos, Michalis Nikolopoulos), accused of ‘instigation’ following 4 attacks carried out in the context of the ‘Phoenix Project’, were summoned to testify before the judges.
The ‘Phoenix Project’ is a campaign of guerrilla attacks, which started off with the explosion of the car of the governor of Koridallos prison carried out by the CCF. The action was later followed by another 3 actions carried out by FAI/FRI nuclei in Greece and Indonesia. (more…)

via parabellum & nihilist abyss:
I think that now is the time to express my opinion on some things that have happened recently.
Starting, I would like to say that I remain imprisoned for 33 months without being sentenced by any court yet. This is, according to their laws, illegal, abusive, against the rules… As it is now known, the highest limit of pre-trial detention is 18 months. But, by deploying this new strategy of new custodies, which started against our organization and specifically against comrade Haris Hadjimihelakis, the highest limit of pre-trial detention was raised, every time one of us was about to reach it, from 18 to 30 months. The exact same thing happened to me and comrades Giorgos Polydoros and Olga Ekonomidou, whose 30 months pre-trial detention is coming to an end, this September. This has never been applied on an anarchist organization in Greece ever before. (more…)

Brief Message To The Enemies (Phoenix Project part 5)
We will not talk about “unfair prosecutions”, about “the climate of terror against those who fight”, nor about the “new totalitarian-ism” 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. We will neither talk about the others. The ones who these days feel secretly happy and relieved. Now it’s not the time nor the place to do so. They should bear in mind, however, that the time will come to talk about these things. -
– Freedom To The Wolves of The North
When we said “nothing is over”, it’s not only just words. Our threats will turn into action, time by time, every second we get the chance. And every time, we will bring our actions closer to your face. Directly in front of your guns, uniforms and prison – repressive tools that are often used to kidnap our revolutionary comrades. We will never let you sleep well, because our war is not over yet. (more…)

PDF: Short interview by Contra Info with ten imprisoned comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)
Tuesday, August 27th, 2013
” … The masks of anonymity fell because of our arrests. Therefore, by claiming responsibility for our participation in the anarchist direct action group Conspiracy of Cells of Fire we now have the chance to put forth and speak about direct and by all means attack on the existent, thus opening a lively ongoing dialogue with all those comrades who act in hostile ways against domination. We feel in this way, and despite the limitations we have as captives in the hands of Power, that we are contributing to the shaping of an offensive front of the black international of anarchists of praxis. Our contribution in all this brings us a ‘step’ closer to freedom, as we mentally escape and our minds and hearts accompany every attack of direct action against the civilization of authority. So we feel more alive, more vigorous and stronger, and our morale is reviving in thinking that the shackles of captivity cannot quell the momentum of our rebellious soul. This is why we contribute with all our strength to the dissemination of anarchist ideas and publications.” CCF-FAI

Translated by Actforfreedomnow!boubourAs
This session was interrupted again because of the hunger strike of one of the accused comrades who are not related to the CCF.
This session began with tension. The court often arranges sessions on the days the comrades of the CCF having visiting hours in prison. The result was the trial delayed to start, since the members of the Conspiracy have clarified that they will not interrupt their visiting hours in order to appear in court. In retaliation, the judges called the prison sergeant, in order to pressure the comrades to be in court “on time”. As soon as the members of the CCF were informed of that, they verbally attacked the judges stressing that “blackmail will not pass”, accompanying their statement with a torrent of swearing towards the chairman of the court. The judges receded on the matter of visiting hours and the trial was postponed again.
The interruption continued because of the hunger strike.
The trial continued after the decision of the appeals council to release the accused comrade on hunger strike. The prosecutor in one of his statements, referred to the political content of the CCF communiques concerning the attacks against embassies with parcel bombs. Because however there was a confusion concerning the separation of political and penal responsibility, a comrade of the CCF intervened immediately, stating that the comrades of the CCF support every word and every action of the Conspiracy, without dividing the political from the penal.
The trial continued this time with the anti-terrorist force constantly adding new documents for attacks of the Conspiracy that took place three years ago.
In this session appeared employees of courier companies as prosecution witnesses. Specifically one prosecution witness who worked at a courier company and opened the parcel bomb (because of the police curiosity of the employees), appeared very stressed (the courier company she worked at was attacked with a bomb by FAI a few months ago, as reprisals for its snitching). She testified that she was pressured by the cops since she could not remember many things and the cops helped in the testimony by writing a part themselves.
None of the prosecution witnesses which were called appeared. The court announced the new session dates, the chairwoman mentioned that because she had booked tickets for her vacation, she wants to interrupt the trial for three weeks. At that point intervened two comrades of the CCF who amidst the swearing towards the judges, mentioned the vengeful transfers carried out against them with the excuse of interrupting the trial resulting in their spreading to various prisons of Greece.
Two prosecution witnesses appeared, of which only one testified, while the other will testify in a future session. The witness that testified, mentioned the shoot out between a comrade of the CCF and cops. She characteristically mentioned that the bullets were raining and when she arrived, she saw the two cops injured on the ground and the comrade holding the leg that was shot. As she testified, what made an impression to her was the calmness and seriousness of the comrade who was not speaking or screaming compared to the two cops who as she said were “whining”. The reference and description of the incidents caused laughter to the comrades of the CCF and embarrassment to the cops.
This session was short since a witness came which was the courier who delivered the parcel-bomb to the Bulgarian embassy. He did not mention anything else and the court was adjourned for August 27th.

Dark Nights #36 – ‘Freedom to the Wolves of the North’
Download and distribute…
August 2013 issue of Dark Nights dedicated to a long hot dangerous summer. International news and reports from the informal network of counter-information and translation. Front page covers the repression in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, against comrades from the Nadir squat after the attacks of the Phoenix Project by cells of the Informal Anarchist Federation – International Revolutionary Front. Front page sidepanel is the contribution of Actforfreedomnow!/BoubourAs to the gathering concerning the informal network of counter-info and translation which took place at Nadir itself previous to the repression.
Inside from then on you’ll find a concentration on the case of the Nadir 2, Spyros Mandylas and Andreas Tsavdaridis, the claim for the letter bomb against Dimitris Horianopoulos, scumbag ex-commander of the anti-terrorism unit which carried out the operation against the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, for which the Nadir 2 were arrested for, plus other assorted news and reports from anarchist comrades on the ground in the struggle. We’re really happy to print a letter from Claudio Lavazza, anarchist comrade imprisoned in the Spanish State, on initiatives of resistance in the prisons there. As well you’ll find a statement from the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire about their court charges of responsibility for 250 attacks, and also you’ll find letters from rebel prisoners in Chile, including Marcelo Villarroel and Juan Aliste of the ‘Security case’ and coming from Switzerland, a letter of hungerstrike resistance from Marco Camenisch and Andrea Stauffacher in solidarity with Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, of the Lebanese Revolutionary Armed Fraction, arrested in Lyon, France in 1984.
This is dedicated to all the prisoners of the struggle who don’t have the ability to be free with their loved ones during the ‘holiday’ time, against the false-culture and the prison-society… From Chile, to Indonesia and beyond….
Long live the Black International

This statement was read in the 4th trial of CCF (250 attacks)
Before I speak my mind about the legal objections raised from the side of the lawyers, I want to make something clear. In this trial, there are four different sides. The side of the judges, the lawyers’ side, the side of the accused, who are innocent and our own side, the side of those who took responsibility for our action in the network of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
From the part of the lawyers there was a refined positioning in relation to the submission of objections to the court in previous sessions. The lawyers, among whom is also our personal friend Franciscos Ragkousis, speaking in the language of the law, not only highlighted the contradictions of the trial but they also showed its hypocrisy.
We’re talking about a show that does not even keep up the pretenses of its own democratic scenario. But this farce called a trial, leaves us completely indifferent. Often our attorneys appointed by the court, reach a dead end. As they say themselves, the hostile and absolute way in which we face this trial, blocks them and cancels pieces of legal defense. It cancels the possible presumption of innocence, the pleas and defense lines as well as the legal benefit of any extenuations.
To be accurate, your laws are trash for us. Our view on justice is written on the demolition of the courts of Thessaloniki, on the blasting of the façade of Athens’ Court, on the homes of judges, that we burned … Nothing has changed just because some of us were captured. The captivity in prison did not reduce our decision to fight against laws and institutions, not even one inch.
Then one could reasonably wonder why we appear at trial. The answer is simple. When we were free/wanted our attacks were the way we expressed ourselves and now as we remain captured, our word, even in the court of the enemy, breaks the silence. Silence is not acceptable for an anarchist urban guerrilla.
This does not mean that we will resort to the legal corpses of words in order to talk about ourselves. Reference was made to the jurisdiction of the Court. For us, the court lacks jurisdiction. We do not recognize any white-collar as our natural judge. Only we and our conscience can judge our actions. Nobody else. There was also a plea for the poor composition of judges. But for us, there are no good and bad judges, nor righteous and unrighteous. There are simply judges, officials of the enemy in different shades whose names are targets of the anarchist network of CCF, without exceptions.
The issue of the Joint Statutory and the presence of jurors, was also mentioned. We make clear here that we are anarcho-individualists and nihilists and that we have no appreciation nor respect for the “poor people.” Even more, for law-abiding citizens who sit on the benches of jurors. These “poor” people, who are today humiliated and miserable, are the same who worship their bosses and have the same values with them, money and power. They are the people who always whimper but never revolt, questioning but always believing in young leaders/saviors, who always yell but never act. It is high time we break away from dusty revolutionary ideologies – no sheep was saved bleating. Against sheep and shepherds, we are wolves.
As far as the definition of “political crime” is concerned, we don’t seek an evaluation for our actions within the laws and the articles of the penal code. Our actions are defined by ourselves with the way we intervene into the normal course of history in order to derail it. Only through violent derailment of history, is a person able to come across the peaks of his thoughts and actions. We place ourselves far away from the so-called unselfish separation between political and criminal. These terms belong to Power and we don’t use them. There is just the responsibility of saying “this is me and I will continue to wage war by all means necessary”. Theory and action are one. This is the theory of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. The unity of theory and action, for the destruction of the system. As for the unselfishness of the motives of our actions, this just a romantic abstraction, unable to measure up with real life. Anarchy is our egoistic demand to ourselves, to take life in our own hands. To define our existence. To hit what is ugly. More than anything it is an existential bet and not a scheme for social salvation. So we are not unselfish and neither do we act in the name of the pitiful people. We are egoist anarchists and we don’t accept extenuations. We have already chosen the weight of our choices and we are not going to lighten our decisions.
As far as the potential risk of human life is concerned, we have said these things before in other trials. The choices of each one of us, define their life. There are options that are hostile and their exponents are targets for us. The acts and thoughts of an anarchist urban guerrilla aim to multiply the risk to the life of the enemies of anarchy and of state officials. It is clear that the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire contributed to the proliferation of this risk and we will continue to do so.
For all these reasons and countless more, do not bother to answer the objections because we are indifferent to them. We reject the hypocrisy of a democratic dialogue and choose to keep our words armed, as our weapons. Always on the opposite side, always on the attack.
