In the early hours of Sunday, July 20th, we attacked the bastards of the MAT anti-riot squad with Molotov cocktails at the headquarters of Greece’s socialist PASOK co-ruling party located in Charilaou Trikoupi Street, Exarchia, as a minimum act of solidarity with urban guerrilla fighter Nikos Maziotis…
The States are the only terrorists. Solidarity with urban guerrilla fighters!
Strength and solidarity to anarchist combatant Nikos Maziotis, and Pola Roupa who has a bounty on her head.
Comrade Sadi Özpolat joins the hunger-strike in solidarity with prisoners in Greece against ‘Type C’ prisons (Germany)
Saturday, July 19th, 2014
Besides Sadi Özpolat, Julihmet Düzgün Yuksel, Andreas Krebs, Oliver Rast, Thomas Meyer-Falk and Marco Camenisch are participating in the solidarity hunger strike for the Greek prisoners, from 18-20 July.
In a § 129b – trial [terrorist association] in the Regional Court of Dusseldorf in early 2012, Sadi Özpolat was sentenced to six years in prison. In Turkey, Sadi spent 17 years in jail. He participated in the 1996 death fast and at the beginning of the century, he was the spokesperson of the prisoners in the hunger-strike. In a battle against the introduction of isolation torture “made in Stammhein” in prisons [Stammhein is the prison where the imprisoned members of the Red Army Faction were murdered by the German State], that is going on for almost 7 years, in that time more than 120 people have died.
Death fast, in contrast to hunger strike, is ended only if a result is reached.
After his release in 2003 in Turkey, Sadi was arrested again in 2004. When he was released in 2008, he left Turkey and applied for asylum in France.
Sadi was arrested on 19 May 2010 in French Colmar due to a warrant by the German Attorney General, and in July 2010 he was delivered to the German authorities and sent to prison.
In Germany, Sadi did several hunger strikes to fight for better conditions.
Neben Sadi Özpolat beteiligt auch an dem Solidaritätshungerstreik für die griechischen Gefangenen vom 18-20. Julihmet Düzgün Yüksel, Andreas Krebs, Oliver Rast, Thomas Meyer-Falk und Marco Camenisch ist auch Sadi in den Soli-HS getreten.
In einem §129b – Prozess vor dem OLG Düsseldorf wurde Sadi Özpolat Anfang 2012 zu 6 Jahren Haft verurteilt. In der Türkei war Sadi insgesamt 17 Jahre im Knast. Er nahm am Todesfasten 1996 teil und war Anfang des Jahrhunderts Sprecher der hungerstreikenden Gefangenen. In einen bald 7 Jahre andauernden Kampf, der sich gegen die Einführung der Isolationsfolter „Made in Stammheim“ richtete, starben über 120 Menschen.
Todesfasten wird im Gegensatz zum Hungerstreik erst beendet, wenn ein Resultat erreicht ist.
Nach seiner Entlassung 2003 in der Türkei wurde Sadi 2004 erneut verhaftet. Als er wieder frei kam, reiste er 2008 aus der Türkei aus und stellte einen Asylantrag in Frankreich.
Sadi wurde am 19. Mai 2010 im französischen Colmar aufgrund eines Festnahmeersuchens der Bundesanwaltschaft festgenommen und im Juli 2010 nach Deutschland ausgewiesen und in den Knast gesteckt.
Er trat mehrere Male in der BRD in den Hungerstreik, um bessere Bedingungen zu erkämpfen.

In the terror court 17.7.14 for the robbery in Pyrgeto: Guilty, because they are anarchists!
Prosecutor : Trying the case of the robbery in Pyrgeto, Larissas, surpassed all limits and threw away every pretence in the Korydallos terror court. While he admitted during the hearing that there was no evidence of guilt concerning the accused comrades Grigoris Sarafoudis and Giannis Naxakis, because anyway guilt was implied in the indictment “You cannot ignore the fact that the defendants are related to the anti-authoritarian, anarchist movement”!
The TERROR COURT rejected the request for attenuating Grigoris Sarafoudis and imposed the same sentence as Giannis Naxakis with the following sentences:
- 10 years for robbery
- 6 years for participation in a terrorist organization (C.C.F.)
- 5 years for stealing a car
– 2 years for possession of guns.
After the merger, a total of 16 years imprisonment for each.
Revolutionary Struggle case: Strength to anarchist Nikos Maziotis, arrested in Athens on 16/7 (Greece)
Thursday, July 17th, 2014
In the evening of July 16th, 2014 comrades put up a solidarity banner at the gate of the Polytechnic School, on Patission Street, in response to the fact that Revolutionary Struggle member Nikos Maziotis was recaptured by police in central Athens.
Anarchist Nikos Maziotis, who was on the run for two years, was seriously wounded and arrested earlier today after a shootout with cops in Monastiraki. He was then transferred to the tightly-guarded Evangelismos hospital, where he remains hospitalized. According to his lawyer, the comrade’s life is out of danger.
From 22:30, dozens of anarchists gathered outside the hospital to demonstrate their solidarity with urban guerrilla fighter Nikos Maziotis. At about 23:30 the solidarity intervention was over, and an assembly was called for tomorrow, Thursday 17/7, at 19:30, in the Polytechnic School in Exarchia.
More updates as they come.

On July 4th continued the terror-court in Koridallos for the robbery in Velvedo, with the reading out of the indictment documents, a procedure that began in the previous session. Two sessions came before that, in which the witnesses that were examined were the cops of the DIAS group and cops from the cop car that sped to arrest comrades G.Mihailidis, N.Romanos and A.D.Bourzoukos. All these witnesses, in order to cover the torturing that took place in Veria police station, testified that in order to immobilize the comrades they clashed with them and in the scuffle the comrades were injured.

we would like to present an interview the Anarchist Radio Berlin (aradio.blogsport.de) made with the Greek Hip Hop collective Social Waste, who were on tour and performed in Berlin on the 6th of July 2014. Social Waste are involved in multiple, ongoing struggles in Greek. The group has been active since the late 1990s and they are engaged in providing a sociopolitical analysis through their music. In the interview, Leonidas, Yiannis, Yiorgis and Chris tell us about the history of Hip Hop in Greece, what motivates them to do music and how they produce it. They also tell us about current issues in Greece, concerning the crisis, its neoliberal management and the antifascist struggle.

Today, Wednesday 2nd of July, there was the second session of the trial about the “Phoenix” Project. The 12 defendants (Andreas Tsavdaridis, Spyros Mandylas and the 10 imprisoned members of CCF) were not presented in court because they are recovering from the 8-day hunger strike in which they participated against the bill for the maximum security prisons. They also asked not to be represented by any lawyer. We remind that the trial began on June the 4th and it concerns three acts of the “Phoenix” Project (Acts 1, 2, 4). The trial was postponed to Wednesday 16th of July.
Not a milimeter back,
9 milimeters to the cops’ heads.

After some modifications to the draft bill on maximum security prisons, the recess section of the Greek Parliament is now prepared to vote on this new law on Monday, July 7th. Perhaps it will take another summer session for the final voting, but their plan is to pass the bill no matter what… A protest gathering, supported also by anarchists, against the passage of the ‘prison reform bill’ will take place on Monday 7/7, at 18:00 in Syntagma Square, Athens.
Prisoners throughout Greece have quit their mass hunger strike since the 1st of July, promising other forms of protest on the inside (we don’t have related info as of yet).
One can never know what the fucking minister of Justice, Charalambos Athanasiou, will submit at the last minute, but according to updates so far, main modifications are supposed to be as follows:
- initial incarceration period in Type C prison units for recalcitrant inmates: (from 4 years to) 2 years;
- initial incarceration period in Type C prison units for inmates convicted to over 12 years for terrorism (article 187A of the Greek penal code), and for inmates convicted to over 15 years for criminal organization (article 187 of the Greek penal code): (from 10 years to) 4 years.
It is said that prisoners remanded on terrorism charges (under article 187A), who are still awaiting trial (not yet convicted), will also be sent to Type C prison units.
It is still a fact that inmates locked up in Type C prison units won’t have the right to furlough (days of leave from the prison).
Even if “dangerous” inmates serve 4 full years in a Type C prison, the incarceration period can be extended by prison prosecutors to 2 more years (when these prisoners are not “well-behaved”, or suddenly have further “incriminating indications” presented against them, etc.); when the additional 2 years are over, their incarceration in a Type C prison can be prolonged again to another 2-year period, and so forth…
This is all we can transmit for the time being.
Solidarity with prisoners of the State/Capital. Destroy all prisons!
18-20 July: German prisoners to hunger-strike in solidarity with Greek prisoners against the new prison system and as an expression of international prisoners solidarity
Sunday, July 6th, 2014
This is a message from German prisoners. They are going to go on hunger-strike between the 18th and the 20 of July. Marco Camenisch, long-term eco-anarchist radical prisoner in Switzerland will also participate. This is an expression of the international prisoners solidarity with the struggle of the Greek prisoners against the new prison system. More info to come…
solidarity is our weapon

“An alle Mitgefangenen,
Geht um die Hungerstreikenden Gefangenen in Griechenland
In Griechenland wehren sich seit dem 23. Juni tausende Gefangene mit einem Hungerstreik gegen Gesetze zur Einrichtung von Hochsicherheitsgefängnissen.
An dem Protest nehmen bereits fast 4000 der etwa 12000 in griechischen
Knästen Eingesperrten teil.
Daher wird aus Solidarität und Anteilnahme die bundesweiter Hungerstreik
Bereits in Berlin und einigen Haftanstalten in Bayern wurde der Termin
für den 18.-20.Juli hierfür angesetzt.
“To all fellow prisoners,
This is about the hunger striker prisoners in Greece
In Greece since June 23 thousands of prisoners fight back with a hunger strike against laws establishing High-security prisons.
At the protest already almost 4000 of about 12,000 of those imprisoned in Greek prisons are taking part.
Therefore, for solidarity and sympathy, a nationwide hunger strike is invoked.
Already in Berlin and some prisons in Bayern was the start date of 18-20 July recognized.

We demand nothing less than the destruction of the beast that keeps the system running.
The ruling democrats strike back with full force. Amid the crisis, they reveal their true face. A face full of enthusiasm, which humiliates, tortures, incarcerates or murders people; a face which smiles happily at the cameras of the world, while thousands of cops break up any resistance with bludgeon and tear gas just around the corner.
However they’re not yet pleased with that. Having managed to break up the resistance in the streets, the dogs of the system have now devoted themselves to crushing every resistance that still exists in prisons, through the total isolation of the prisoners. The domination uses the current intimidation of the great silent majority to take revenge on those who littered Greece in December 2008 with a conflagration. Arising from the revolt, guerrilla groups made the stiff gentlemen in Brussels gasp. (more…)

Ελληνικές φυλακές: Αναστολή της μαζικής απεργίας πείνας κρατουμένων – Greek prisons: Suspension of mass prisoners hunger strike – Erklärung zur Beendigung des Massenhungerstreikes in Griechenland
Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014
Σήμερα, Τρίτη 1 Ιουλίου, αναστέλλουμε τη μαζική πανελλαδική απεργία πείνας που είχαμε ξεκινήσει ενάντια στο νομοσχέδιο στις φυλακές υψίστης ασφαλείας.
Αναστέλλουμε την απεργία πείνας, αλλά δεν τερματίζουμε την κινητοποίησή μας. Αντίθετα ανακτούμε τις δυνάμεις μας και προειδοποιούμε το υπουργείο ότι δεν πρόκειται να δεχτούμε τη λειτουργία του ελληνικού Γκουαντάναμο ούτε στον Δομοκό ούτε πουθενά.
Παραμένουμε καχύποπτοι απέναντι στις βελτιωτικές προτάσεις του υπουργείου που θα κατατεθούν την Πέμπτη (3/7) και είμαστε έτοιμοι αν χρειαστεί να αγωνιστούμε με ΚΑΘΕ ΜΕΣΟ για να ματαιώσουμε το νομοσχέδιο-έκτρωμα για τις φυλακές υψίστης ασφαλείας.
Γνωρίζουμε ότι τίποτα δε θα βελτιωνόταν αν δεν κάναμε την απεργία πείνας. Ας γνωρίζει όμως και το υπουργείο πως απέναντι στην οργανωμένη σιωπή που επιβάλλουν τα Μέσα Μαζικής Ενημέρωσης αποκρύπτοντας τη ΜΑΖΙΚΟΤΕΡΗ ΑΠΕΡΓΙΑ ΠΕΙΝΑΣ που έχει γίνει (4500 κρατούμενοι απεργοί πείνας), από εδώ και πέρα, αλλάζουμε τα μέσα αγώνα και αν χρειαστεί θα προχωρήσουμε σε δυναμικότερες μορφές αντίστασης. Ο νοών νοείτω…

Today, Tuesday 1 July we interrupt the collective pan-Greek hunger strike we started against the law making process for the high security prisons.
We interrupt the hunger strike, but we don’t end the mobilization. Rather we gather strength and we warn the Ministry of Justice that we won’t accept the working of a Greek Guantanamo, in Domokos or anywhere.
We shall be aware and opposed to the proposals of the Ministry that will be announced on Thursday, and we are ready if need be, to struggle with ANY MEANS to attack (bloodily) the legal process of building the high security prisons.
We know that nothing would be made public if we had not started the hunger strike.
Let it be known to the Ministry that against the organized silence of mass media is the BIGGEST HUNGER STRIKE that has happened (4500 participants) and that from now on we change the means of struggle and if need be we will move to dynamic forms of resistance. “Care to the carer/guards…”
Initiative for struggle in prisons
Erklärung zur Beendigung des Massenhungerstreikes in Griechenland
Heute Dienstag, den 1. Juli, habe wir den landesweiten kollektiven Hungerstreik, der in Hochsicherheitsgefängnissen gegen den Gesetzentwurf begonnen hatte, beendet. Wir beenden den Hungerstreik, aber nicht unseren Kampf. Stattdessen erneuern wir unsere Kräfte und warnen das Ministerium, dass wir einen Betrieb des griechischen Guantánamo nie akzeptieren werden, weder in Domokos noch sonstwo. Wir bleiben den Vorschlägen für die Verbesserung des Dienstes gegenüber misstrauisch, welche uns am Donnerstag vorgelegt werden und wir sind bereit, wenn nötig, mit ALLEN MITTELN kämpfen, um dieses Geschwür eines Gesetzesvorschlag für ein Hochsicherheitsgefängnis zu bodigen. Wir wissen, dass nichts verbessern würde, wenn wir es den Hungerstreik. Wir lassen das Ministerium hiermit wissen, dass wir gegen das organisierte Verschweigen der Medien des am breitesten abgestützten je durchgeführten Hungerstreiks (4500 hungerstreikenden Gefangenen), von nun an, die Mittel des Kampfes wechseln, und wenn nötig dynamischere Formen des Widerstands anwenden werden. Dabei bedarf es keiner weiteren Erklärung…

Dozens of inmates went to the hospital. More specifically, 2 inmates from Corfu prison, some inmates from Amfisa prison and the rest of them from Koridallos prison. They were going to the hospital and most of them were sent back after being given an injection of dextrose!
Comrades Panagiotis Argirou, Michalis Nikolopoulos and Nikos Romanos remains in the hospital after having a fight for not taking intravenous fluids and dextrose!
Here is a video from the prisoners of A wing of Koridallos deciding to refuse the night lockdown for one hour with force!
May health and chaos be within you!
Saturday, June 28th, 2014
Two more jails joined the struggle, the prison of Corinth with 50 inmates and the prison of island Kw.
At the prison of Corfu 40 more inmates joined the struggle after taking courage from a demonstration that took place outside of the prison.
At Koridallos prison, Athens, more than 20 prisoners have been transferred to the hospital yesterday (27/6/14) and today morning (28/6/14) our comrades-members of CCF Panagiotis Argirou and Michalis Nikolopoulos are in the hospital also!
Due to the voting of the law about Type-C prisons on Wednesday 3/7/14 we have
decided to make the struggle toughest, so in the next few days a lot of people will go to the hospital!
Yesterday night (27/6/14), the inmates of Koridallos prison delayed with force the night lockdown of the prison for 1 hour to demonstrate that the last days that a lot of inmates are going to the medical facility of the prison and the hospital. There is no medical personnel to take care of them!!
Also it was an answer to the fact that the prison staff went on strike preventing the inmates having visits with lawyers and their family while the inmates are in hunger strike!
The struggle continues…
… until victory!!!!
May health and chaos be within you all!!!!
Message of Olga Economidou, CCF: Imprisoned Members Cell, about her participation in the hunger strike against maximum security prisons (Greece)
Friday, June 27th, 2014
Inter Arma received and translated:
There are two cases of people in this world. The ones who voluntarily let their life be wasted passively inside locked days, one after another, and the ones who dream with their eyes open and want to destroy all the world’s locks that cage our life behind bars, inside walls, in habits, rules, laws… Do not look for us in the first group…. Since today, Wednesday 25th of July, I participate in the hunger strike against the functioning of Domokos’ Guantanamo.
