Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – “Better to be a demon of vengeance, than an angel of forgiveness” / “Mejor ser un demonio de la venganza que un ángel del perdón” – Conspiración de las Células de Fuego (Greece)

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

A signal of complicity from the Greek prisons, for the international call of solidarity made from Publicacion Refractario, Colectivo Lucha Revolucionaria (Revolutionary Struggle Collective) and Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras, to our brothers and sister Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores, Guillermo Durán and Enrique Guzmán, who are imprisoned in Chile, accused for attacks made by the International Conspiracy of Revenge and the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Chile.

Nothing is uglier than ugliness repeated twice.

Chile: anarchist Enrique Guzmán is arrested and detained.

The reason: the police say that traces of his DNA were found at a distance from a target where a bomb was placed, which is included in the case for which our brothers and sister Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova, Guillermo Durán were arrested, 6 months ago.

The real reason: Guzmán was a friend of the three imprisoned comrades, who did not abandon them for a moment in the difficult conditions of captivity. He was the friend who despised police looks and checks and visited them often in prison. He was the friend who, with his communication, canceled their exile and loneliness, in the land of the locked up people.

He is the friend who proves that real friends do not flinch, but share both the laughter of joys and the steep hills of sorrows…

The battle, however, is uneven. Anyone who does not comply or does not discipline himself within the limits of the permissible morality of the silent people who bow their heads, is driven to the place of exile, in the cold prison cells. (more…)

A contribution to the international call against prisons from Chile, by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

This is where wolves are silent because people are screaming…

10-20 of April: an international campaign of comrades in Chile, against prison. Ten days against the obeisances of those who learned to live like servants. A message of complicity. Words that escaped from the prisons of Chile, traveled thousands of kilometers away, crossed borders, police forces, censorship and reached our cells. Thoughts and meanings that became our sleepless friends to our difficult moments of the hunger strike we carried out. Where life and death stand a breath, heartbeat less away from each other, there where comradeship, solidarity and complicity give advantage to life. Words and thoughts of comrades from Chile gave us courage, tenacity and a hoard of smiles.

Against a society that accepts being marked with the mark of authority, with ID numbers, tax records, cameras, products’ barcodes, Facebook, virtual reality, monitors, here we also stand, we who refuse to be tamed. We refuse to become the obedient pets in the shop window of survival that repeats itself and looks like a slow death.

In different places and moments, different negation and insurrection, which although speak different languages, express common meanings, meet. It’s the meeting of all of us who discovered our true face when we put on a hood to attack the ugliness of this world. It’s the call of all of us who chose the sound of a bank’s window crumbling, the break and ignition of a molotov cocktail as it traverses the night as a glowing star, an explosion that blows up authority and silence of the social graveyard, a pistol arming while rising to shoot death carrying normality, as our music.

Video: Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Phoenix Project – An account of the FAI/IRF Project ‘Phoenix’ (Black International)

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

English subtitled version of the film giving the account of the early part of the Phoenix Project, international project of sabotage and attack with over a dozen hits in a variety of different countries.

Dedicated to Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, Olga Cell FAI/IRF, who took responsibility for the laming of CEO Roberto Adinolfi of Ansaldo Nucleare.

“We are here, where everything starts now.”

The Project of ‘Phoenix’ is the unfolding of a hidden map marking one of the routes to the Atlantis of practical theory. An unknown and lost continent that exists beyond the edges of the burning cities of the interzone. Created through action, dialogue and ideas and organised informally with anarchic principles of permanent autonomous attack, revolutionary solidarity and internationalism. A sequence of attacks by different radical direct action groups around the world, breaking the silence of isolation and striking back again against the prison societies of the techno-industrial system.

The imprisoned members of CCF are charged with instigation for the attacks, Spyros Mandylas and Andreas Tsavdaridis were arrested and charged for act #4 in the project, sending a parcel-bomb to the former commander of the anti-terrorist agency, Dimitris Xorianopoulos, whilst Christos Rodopoulos is reportedly accused of the mailing of the parcel bomb to Dimitris Mokkas, chief prosecutor in the CCF case, as act #6.

The Phoenix project is now renewed through the 2015 attacks in Chile, Czech Republic and Greece, with the comrades within the territory of Czech Republic initiating the campaign Let’s destroy repression. The story of the Phoenix continues to be written…

SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON

NOT A MILLIMETER BACK

NINE MILLIMETERS TO THE COPS’ HEADS

Berlin: Soli-banner for CCF and the ongoing hunger strike (Germany)

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

As a small sign of solidarity with the CCF and the ongoing hungerstrike of various prisoners in Greece and their struggle against this prison-society, we dropped a banner in Berlin, at the “Oberbraumbrücke” in Friedrichshain/Kreuzberg:

“Strength and complicity to all CCF / prisoners on hunger-strike in Greece! our hearts are beating for you too”

Victory to the prisoners’ struggle and their demands!

Strength and Freedom for the CCF and their relatives!

Update on comrade Mihalis Nikolopoulos (Greece)

Sunday, April 5th, 2015

After the victorious hunger strike of the CCF, comrade Michalis Nikolopoulos has returned from the intensive care unit to his room on the 10th floor of Evangelismos hospital where he was before. During the night of hospitalization in the ICU, where he was moved for close monitoring due to the criticality of the situation, his pulse went down to 20 beats per minute(!) and his pressure to 6. The comrade escaped the immediate danger, his moral is good and according to doctors his heart manages to stabilize although everything was hanging by a thread. Still, he will remain in the hospital for several days, so that some more medical tests are made.

Mihalis was a step away from death and at the same time nothing is over, as the hunger strike of the other political prisoners continues while the state of their health IS deteriorating as they are now on the 35th day of the strike.

NO OTHER COMRADE OF US IN THE ICU!

IMMEDIATE SATISFACTION OF THE DEMANDS OF THE HUNGER STRIKERS

- Abolition of the counter-terrorism laws 187 and 187A

- Abolition of the “hood-law”

- Restriction on the use and proccessing of DNA as an evidence

- Abolition of type C prisons

- Release of Savas Xiros for health reasons

The hunger strike of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire was victorious (Greece)

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

THE HUNGER STRIKE OF THE CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE WAS VICTORIOUS

Today is a day that a crack in the walls of the imprisoned world around us has opened. After 32 days of hunger strike, the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the girlfriend of the latter will soon pass the exit of prison, free again…

32 days of hunger strike, with eight comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire being hospitalized, balancing between life and death. Mihalis found himself in the ICU the last few days, Olga has reached 40 kilos, Panagiotis had an already compromised health from previous surgeries on his head, George P. has a problem with his heart, with his heart-beats reaching 30 and all of them had medical measurements indicating that they lost 15-20% of their initial body weight.

32 days, the hunger strike became a daily, slow torment of death, in order for us not to make truce with the absolute death of emotional blackmail. An insidious blackmail which authority wanted to impose on us by abducting and keeping our relatives as hostages in prison. 32 days of hunger strike, every fading beat of our heart, reminded us of the promise we made together when we met for the last time, “Let’s go, until freedom …”.

After 32 days of hunger strike, the shadow of repression grew pale, the walls of captivity lowered and prison admitted defeat.

This victory is not only the result of the hunger strike of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. It’s a victory of a whole world of solidarity, with arson attacks, occupations, sabotage, marches, gatherings, unexpected interventions, which broke the social peace, turned cities into fields of insurrectional moments and occupied buildings into living labs of subversive situations. In an everyday life where the desire for freedom has been suspended indefinitely, life flooded with little and large gestures of liberation, with fires, with slogans and sparkling eyes of persons who wore hoods.

We are flooded with many thoughts that want to fill with words the corresponding meanings. But now, there is neither a day for celebration, nor for accounts of victory. Today we stop the hunger strike, having beaten the scarecrows of authority who wanted our relatives in prison, BUT at the same time, the hunger strike of the remaining political prisoners, for the overall requests that have been set, continues. The days that follow are critical both for their health and for the total wager of anarchist struggle. Therefore, there is no time neither for relaxing, nor for victory celebrations. The die was cast a long time ago… We, as the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, remain on the ramparts and prepare our counter-attack, supporting the struggle conducted within and outside prison.

Authority and it’s scarecrows should know that every judicial coup, every jail, every moment of oppression, every lie of propaganda, every shade of bourgeois morality will return back to its instigators and owners, with multiple power and vehemence. With the power and vehemence of sabotage, fire, explosion, execution… In war, we answer with war. Time for us to attack first…

STRENGTH AND SOLIDARITY with anarchist comrade Nikos Maziotis. member of R.S., and the Network of Fighting Prisoners

VICTORY TO THE STRUGGLE OF THE HUNGER STRIKE

EVERYTHING CONTINUES…

Athens – CCF hunger strike: Words of Evi Statiri from prison (Greece)

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

On April 1st, Athena Tsakalou (mother of the Tsakalos brothers) stated that she refuses to walk out of prison until her daughter-in-law is also granted release. The two women, who were remanded in custody over the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire intended prison escape, are currently sharing a cell in Koridallos prison.

The next day, CCF prisoner on hunger strike Michalis Nikolopoulos was admitted to the hospital’s intensive care unit in extremely critical condition. The rest of the hunger striking comrades also find themselves facing life-threatening problems.

In the small hours of Friday, April 3rd, anarchists gathered at Evangelismos hospital in Athens, where Damiano Bolano and Michalis Nikolopoulos are being treated. The banner reads: “Not a step back – We break state terrorism in the streets”

On April 3rd, Evi Statiri (wife of CCF member Gerasimos Tsakalos) published an open letter asking the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire prisoners – including Angeliki Spyropoulou – to quit their hunger strike, and urging Athena Tsakalou to accept her release from prison. Below is an excerpt from Evi’s words:

“(…) From the first moment, Gerasimos and the rest of the people from the Organization Conspiracy Cells of Fire assumed the responsibility and emphasised that neither his mother nor I had any relation to the escape they were preparing.

When we were sent to pretrial detention, and despite our objections, these people went on hunger strike demanding our release from prison. Thirty three days later, I think that the legislative provision of the Ministry of Justice provides a solution to the just demand for my release. Knowing their critical health condition (M.Nikolopoulos is hospitalized in ICU, and there are serious health risks for all of them), I URGE them to stop the hunger strike. The moral weight of the damage they cause to themselves is unbearable to me, and the idea of death hovering over their lives overshadows my every thought. I also ask Gerasimos’ mother to accept her release, and it won’t be long until we share freedom instead of prison. (…)”

Comrade – hunger striker Mihalis Nikolopoulos transferred to the ICU (Greece)

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

April 2, 2015 at 10:28 pm

About two hours ago, comrade Mihalis Nikolopoulos was transferred to the intensive care unit of Evaggelismos hospital as a precautionary measure because of the critical condition of his health. His heart rate by this time is low (up to 33 beats per minute).

Mihalis, hold tight!

New update on the comrade – hunger striker Mihalis Nikolopoulos (Greece)

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Comrade Mihalis Nikolopoulos almost suffered a heart attack today in the morning for the third consecutive day. Around 3:00, his heart rate was 27 beats per minute and his blood pressure 7, so injectable atropine was administered to him. The comrade’s condition is very critical. When he’s trying to sleep, his heart beat rate falls again shortly after the injection of atropine, so the comrade has to lower the monitoring that is permanently connected to him, in order for him to be able to sleep 1-2 hours, risking the possibility of a cardia arrest even more.

Now the doctors are saying that even if the comrade stopped the hunger strike today, there is a possibility of him having suffered permanent heart damage which may require the need of a pacemaker.

“ALL OR NOTHING” – Text by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

A few days ago, the councils responsible for the release of the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the girlfriend of the latter came in session. The repeated postponements that took place, made several comrades of the Conspiracy reach the limits between life and death. Mihalis has been in danger of suffering a heart attack twice, as his pulses dropped down to 20-25/ beats per minute (!!!), Olga has reached 40 kg, Panagiotis already has a compromised health due to prior head surgeries, Giorgos P. has serious bradycardia and pressure problems (systolic pressure 5, diastolic 3) and all comrades have lost 15-20% of their initial body weight.

Finally, the first council (by majority) decided the release of the mother, with iron restrictions (10.000 euros bail, 3 times per month required presence at a police station, prohibition of leaving the country and prohibition of leaving the island of Salamina where she lived, which had as a result, essentially, her not being allowed to visit her imprisoned sons). The second council rejected the release application of Gerasimos Tsakalos’ girlfriend, keeping her hostage of the judicial vindictiveness.

That is the game of death that continues in an even more coercive manner. They want to divide us, by offering us, on the one hand, a handicapped freedom with the release of the mother and on the other hand, a compromise with the acceptance of Evi’s detention. Our answer is simple and clear.

No truce, not a step back.

We are not going to stop our hunger strike even in front of the abyss of death. Because the absolute death is to accept the reality imposed by authority, to step back in front of its commands and hide in indifference.

We continue until the end, consistent to our decision. Until an end is given to Evi’s detention.

PS1: The mother of comrades’ Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos refused to comply with the unfair continuation of Evi’s hostage situation and did not accept the restrictions, claiming that she will pass the gate to freedom, only with Evi, who has nothing to do with our organization. Dignity proves to be stronger than legal freedom.

PS2: The last two arrests (a couple of Albanians, according to news reports) regarding our planned escape, prove only the judicial-police Gordian Knot, which tightens like a loop around the true events. Several persons, who have no connection to our organization, have been led chained to investigative offices and others are hold in custody, only because the prosecuting authorities thought that there are references to them (not even their names are written there) in some decrypted messages.

What we see unfolding before us is a spectacular television production with targeted leaks from the case file to police reporters in order to inflate and disfigure reality. It’s a TV trailer for a prison escape which unfortunately didn’t happen. A reality show with strong doses of cannibalism, as besides the confiscated weapons and explosives for which we, as CCF, claimed full responsibility, there are people who are led to prison only because of a friendly relation, a letter, a misdemeanor, of nothing, through the disfiguring magnifying glass of the counter-terrorism law.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF EVI

STRENGTH TO MIHALIS who has reached the limits of death (brother our every thought, our every heart beat is with you)

VICTORY TO ALL HUNGER STRIKERS AND TO THE DEMANDS OF THE STRUGGLE

Update on the hunger strike of the comrades of CCF (Greece)

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

UPDATE: The comrade – hunger striker Mihalis Nikolopoulos almost suffered a heart attack for the second time in one day. Injected atropine was administered to him again as his heart rate is 30 beats per minute.

Today in the morning around 6 a.m., the hunger striker Mihalis Nikolopoulos almost suffered a heart attack as his heart rate was 25 beats per minute and his blood pressure 8/2,5. One and a half dose of injected atropine was administered to him as a single dose wasn’t enough. His state of health is currently somewhat more stable (40 beats per minute) but the risk of a cardiac arrest is imminent and can happen anytime.

Also the council of appeals decided today to release the mother of comrades Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos on bail.

According to the latest information, all comrades of CCF continue the hunger strike until the wife of Gerasimos is also released.

Amongst two worlds – International Call of Action for the Hunger Strike until Death of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)

Monday, March 30th, 2015

The moment the following words were written, we’re on the 25th day of hunger strike, for the liberation of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos’ mother, as well as the second one’s girlfriend.

The pre-trial detention of our two comrades’ relatives was an act of revenge by the judicial power against us, in retaliation for the escape we had prepared, with the bombing of the prison.

Now, reaching a tipping point between life and death, we want to share some thoughts with brothers and sisters, accomplices, comrades and anarchists all over the world. Of course, we know that upgrades of repression does not occur only in the Greek territory. It has already been applied in several countries, wishing to avenge anarchist deniers of the existent. Recently, in Chile, cops wanted to implicate the mother of the comrade Juan Aliste (“Security” Case) to a case of escape attempt of her son and his comrades. Moreover, in Spain, through Operation “Pandora”, when comrades from the friendship circle of anarchist prisoner Monica Caballero were targeted, while relatives of the anarchist Tamara Sol, in Chile, during their visit in prison, suffered the revengeful sadistic “care” of the penal officers who wanted to inflict humiliating body searches on them.

These attacks against relatives and friends of the anarchist prisoners seek to form an impassable moat of isolation around us. What the arrests, the verdicts and the prison bars failed to achieve, the emotional blackmail and the locking up of our beloved ones in the cells of democracy comes to accomplish. The blackmail is clear: we either make truce, or our relatives remain in prison. We’re not going to sign any paper of repentance nor capitulate with power. We remain unrepentant anarchists and every day power keeps our people as hostages, the wolf of negation and attack festers more and more inside us…

We know that several comrades around the world, with whom we are connected through the complicity of the anarchist action, feel numb towards the choice of hunger strike. As some close comrades from Croatia wrote to us, hunger strike, posing demands on power, in some sense, acknowledges it when asks for their satisfaction. Somebody else could say the hunger strike looks like a reliance on emotions, which nourishes the traders of hope and humanism to play political games on our backs. We understand some concerns related to the method of the hunger strike as, in the past, we have shared them with each other. Besides, in several cases when we experienced the revenge of power upon us, we chose to act in a different way and not by hunger strike. To put it simply: to war, we answer back with war. Because our choice is always the attack. But now we’re not talking about ourselves. The hostages in prison are our relatives now. This is why we chose a hunger strike, to publicly expose the ugliness and morbidity of power. We are on the 25th day of hunger strike already and we don’t recognise a millimeter of donated ground by power to us. Besides, we are aware that freedom is conquered through the violence of our own actions and won’t be given away by its laws. But our relatives do not share the war we have declared against power, so they won’t share our imprisonment. This is why we demand their immediate release from the cells of democracy.

We know that hunger strike is a slow death. But it is not our death. It is the death of a society that remains dormant and quiet towards the fascism of power. We, therefore, take the responsibility to expose it further… This is why the hunger strike we’re on, is not a passive attitude, but a scream of attack that becomes praxis through the acts of solidarity. It is a scream of attack that meets with thousands of voices in demos, with hundreds of hands that vandalize walls with slogans of solidarity, that hang banners, squat buildings, radio stations, government offices, and set a thousand fires to banks, state vehicles, political parties’ offices, courts, in Greece, Italy, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Czech, Spain, UK, Turkey and the soils of Kurdistan in battle. So, the hunger strike, when connected with actions of attack, is not a plea for pity, but a call for action. This is why we call, from today, the hunger strike we’re on to become a wager for the people of anarchy, for the Black International of the anarchists of praxis, for the FAI/IRF cells, for the comrades, for everyone who chooses to attack against the order, the quiet and the laws of this world and its civilization. From today, through the attacks all over the world, let us put forward the dilemma: either with anarchy, or with power.

Because, on the background of the hunger strike for the release of the CCF comrades’ relatives, in fact, two different worlds are competing: on the one hand, the world of power, order, regularity, law, judges, prisons and, on the other hand, the world of revolt, that of the streets, fire, freedom, anarchy…

NOTHING LESS THAN EVERYTHING

Update on the comrades – hunger strikers Mihalis Nikolopoulos, Damiano Bolano and Olga Ekonomidou (Greece)

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Comrade Damiano Bolano begun the hunger strike weighing 90.1 kg, and has now reached 73.5 kg and suffers from a skin infection almost all over his body. Comrade Mihalis Nikolopoulos from weighing 78.5 kg, has now reached 66.5, while showing significant bradycardia with a pulse in the range of 40-44 per minute and low blood pressure (8/6 small).

Olga Eκonomidou is on the 28th day of hunger strike and has reached a critical level of body weight (42 kg), the blood pressure is very low (7/5) and blood sugar ranges with measurements starting at 70 and goes up to 52 which is a borderline for hypoglycemic shock.

Nevertheless, “justice” continues to play with the lives of the hunger strikers, delaying the council’s decision to release the relatives of members of the CCF in a bureaucratic way, leading them to the boundaries between life and death.

Text written by the comrade – hunger striker Olga Ekonomidou from Sotiria hospital (Greece)

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

We’ve never fit into the laws, the rules, the habits of this world. Besides, it remains too “small” for us to fit in. We loved real life and freedom and these are what we will always fight for. And if today we’re on the 28th day of hunger strike, with the risk of losing our lives, from now on, it is because a life with no dignity, is simply not life at all. What could be more undignified if we did not defend, if we did not fight for those people who, for no benefit, no political theses and choices, they stood by us morally, all throughout our imprisonment, remaining Humans. So, this time we are fighting for them. To avoid their becoming the side effects of a war that they have never been accomplices in. So, let the arrows of democracy target its real enemies again. Once more, democracy saw to me being away from my comrades, as they all are spread out to different hospitals and prisons. But my heart and my soul is with them, every moment. Their strength is my strength during the struggle we together started and together we will end.

NOW AND FOREVER.

New letter written by the comrades – hunger strikers Damiano Bolano and Mihalis Nikolopoulos from Evagelismos hospital (Greece)

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

27th day of hunger strike today and the mind has started playing tricks. We take our eyes away from the view of the room (cell now) that the 10th floor of Evaggelismos hospital offers, in order to share some thoughts with our comrades and friends.

We are tired now and the switching of our mood is often, due to the environment. Our body weight has now got to rates of -5%, -10%, -15%, as if are playing hide and seek with death. We have stopped paying attention to them, ‘until death’ we said anyway when we hugged, taking this decision and this is how it is going to be! Anything else is just details.

Even now that our condition is thought to be critical, not for a second have we thought like “you know what? I have a pain here, here and here, and this has started to worry me”. Our mind is constantly next to our comrades dancing with us, Panagiotis, Olga, Haris, Makis, Giorgos P., Theofilos, Giorgos N., Christos and Aggeliki, as well as the mother and the wife that the pigs of the counter-terrorism agency and the judicial authorities torment, taking revenge for our actions and our intentions. The responsibility for this attack we suffer has a full name and an address, and it starts from the tame petty politicians of the government, goes on with the Minister of Justice and gets to the judicial authorities, that intentionally delay the hearing of the appeal, in order to frazzle us much as possible. In a few words, some of our enemies!

How ironic that people who love life so much and live it with its full force, made this self-trapping decision to smolder like candles, at risking of losing it!

How beautiful it is, after so many years of friction and hardships to still die for each other, sealing our decision with an embrace.

Hardships do not back us down!

Embraced with death!!

Text written by the comrades – hunger strikers Giorgos Polydoros and Gerasimos Tsakalos from Tzanio hospital (Greece)

Saturday, March 28th, 2015


Inter Arma received and translated:

UNTIL THE END…

We continue the hunger strike for the 27th day and are now hospitalized in Tzanio hospital. Our health may be at a “worrying point” as doctors say, but this does not affect us at all. Let us make ourselves clear once again. There is no return from our choice to die if necessary in order to stop the vindictive detention of the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the partner of the latter. We are people that keep their word and we will remain consistent as anarchists in it. We will not step back. It may sound strange to some, the fact that we are on hunger strike without asking anything for ourselves, but we could not leave this vindictive witch hunt pass. Punishing our relatives for our choices, is a fascist practice. From this position, we can only attempt to put a stop to these practices – by hunger strike. We sincerely thank the comrades who help in all ways the struggle that we give in here to be heard by making solidarity action outside. We will not take even one step back. We do not stop. We are determined to rather die than to accept the idea of ​​our relatives in prison. Until the end and let everyone take his/hers responsibilities.

NEITHER LEFT NOT RIGHT AUTHORITY

DEATH TO THE ENEMIES OF FREEDOM… UNTIL VICTORY

Solidarity and strength to all hunger strikers

PS1. Our thoughts are with all the comrades on hunger strike in hospitals in Greece and especially with Mihalis and Damiano who suffer in the hospital of Evangelismos, known for its history of torturing urban guerrillas during their hospitalization there. Stay strong brothers until victory.

PS2. After the well-aimed intervention in Tzanio hospital by some comrades in the past days, in response to the behavior of the hospital towards anarchist hunger striker Fivos Harisis, the behavior of the medical staff towards us is the one that suits to hunger strikers.

Update on comrades – hunger strikers Giorgos Polydoros and Gerasimos Tsakalos

Inter Arma received and translated:

Gerasimos Tsakalos suffers from very strong headaches almost permanently on a daily basis as a result of the multi-day hunger strike. Giorgos Polydoros has α very low pulse (36-40 beats per minute) in combination with low pressure (8/4) which means an immediate risk for a heart attack. Both have already problems with their liver and bile.

The update was sent to us by comrades in solidarity with the hunger strikers
