Athens: Grenade strike against prison guard’s car (Greece)

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

On Tuesday 8 April, there was a grenade strike targeting the car (silver opel vectra) of the well-known guard G. Bardakis, at Zaimi street 33, Aigaleo. This strike is a small act of remembrance towards the murder of prisoner Ilir Kareli.

Kareli after having had enough being beaten, electrocuted, clubbed, doused with buckets of freezing water, tortured and humiliated by the prison guards, eventually “escaped” with his death from the hands of his torturers.

We know that his death will be soon forgotten. Like it happened with the thousands of deaths in the hell of prison from diseases, drugs and desperation.

The murderous guards, however much they tried to clean the blood using chlorine from the isolated prison cell, failed to do so. It remains there, as a mark on the wall, to remind that blood can only be cleaned with blood.

Now it’s our turn…

The night is our friend and its darkness embraces us. We pick up our weapons, ride our bikes and go hunting. Because tonight we hunt prison guards.

Our eyes and ears are everywhere.

Any bastard that raises his hand against a prisoner, will have it ripped off, whoever humiliates and assaults prisoners, will find us personally in his house, the gym he works out at or while waiting unsuspecting at the traffic light.

Everyone who turned violence into a profession against locked up people, will now pay in the same fashion.

We send our Strength and regards to every prisoner in there who supports the national mobilization against the reform bill for the construction of maximum security prisons “type C”.

Respect to the urban guerrillas of Informal Anarchist Federation. Solidarity and complicity to the anarchist comrades of praxis who, on Sunday 6 April, attacked the riot police outside Domokos prison.

THINK REVOLUTIONARY – ACT AGGRESSIVELY.

Warning:

————-

Every single prison guard that took part in Kareli’s torturing/murder is from now on WANTED.

We warn every one of the guards who was not sent to prison that their names -which are already known through the case file and the prisoners- are already in a list of permanent “deleting”.

However remote is the village that they hide in, however many professions they change, we will find them and ambush them.

As far as the imprisoned guards/torturers are concerned, they should know that no matter what protected prison or wing they end up in, they will meet their Fate. Every single prisoner is informed and we have friends everywhere. Their days are numbered… (and difficult…)

“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.

R.O – Revolutionary Struggle: Statement by N.Maziotis and P.Roupa in memory of L.Foundas (Greece)

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

March 10th 2010. Lambros Foundas, member of the Revolutionary Struggle falls dead by the bullets of a cop in Dafni during a preparatory action of the organization. Four years later the proposed political action of Lambros Foundas and the Revolutionary Struggle where he acted, is even more topical, the choice of struggle and the strategy of the action even more imperative. Four years later and the terms of life of millions of people are becoming more and more miserable in the name of saving the economic and political system which is being buried deeper and deeper in the crisis.

Four years ago comrade Lambros Foundas gave his life to a political attempt to not turn decadence into a way of life, to not sacrifice people in order to save the system. He gave his life to a political attempt whose final aim was to throw the corpse of capitalism and with It the state, in the trash of history. He gave his life to open the only path for the complete overcoming of crises, to open the way for social liberation, for Social Revolution. This is the matter which is worth fighting for, even dying for. (more…)

Letter by K.Gournas, member of R.O – Revolutionary Struggle, and D.Koufodinas, member of R.O. – 17 November (Greece)

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Via Actforfree:

The legislation for the prisons creates the Greek Guantanamo.
Those incarcerated in these special kinds of the prisons:

-Are deprived of all rights the other prisoners have (days of leave, probation etc.)

-Have their visitation rights and phone calls minimized (almost eliminated).

-Remain locked in their cells for up to 23 hours a day.

A special police force comes into these prisons with classified duties and authorities.

This asphyxiating regime of detainment reminds us… of the American Guantanamo [Bay]. This legislation of Samaras, Dendias and Athanasiou is of fascist inspiration. Its an expression of a state of permanent emergency. It is the equivalent memorandum for the prisoners.

The micro-society of prison would not be unscathed by the full on attack on Greek society. The moment that at a global scale neo-liberal capitalism, in order to overcome the crisis steps on decades of vested rights, applies to Greek society the most inhuman version of this strategy. (more…)

Mobilisations outside and inside the prisons against the murder of Ilia Kareli and the new Type C prison plans (Greece)

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

 

Footage from these moments:

A big mobilization has started since last month in almost all by now Greek prisons. The mobilization is a reaction for the new law about the maximum security type C prisons. Meanwhile an inmate named Ilia Kareli killed a guard with a knife and the guards in different prisons along with the police tortured him and killed him. So the mobilization acts also in honour with Kareli’s murder and is continuing the struggle. We also send some photos from the A wing of Koridallos prisons (Athens) in an act of honour of Ilia Kareli’s death.

The slogans say “we never forget, we never forgive” “fire to the prisons bombs to the courthouses” “if not now when?” There is also a video of slogans that were shouted at our refusal as prisoners of the A wing and the female wing to get in the prison from the prison yard for 1 hour after the normal yard lock down.

Here are some banners from the women’s prison of Koridallos during the protest of around 1000 people outside the prison against the new maximum security type c prisons.

http://interarma.info/el/2014/04/06/ellada-pano-gynaikeies-fylakes/

Also some slogans written during the protest at Domokos prisons saying “rage and consciousness” “against the Greek Guantanamo” “knives in the prison guards” and “viva la fai/irf” Also at the Domokos prison protest there was some clashes between anarchists and cops. (more…)

Volos: Responsibility claim for arson attack on Tax Office (Greece)

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

via contra info:

1,000 hours of theory equal 1 minute of action.

In the early morning hours of Friday, March 21st, 2014, we attacked the tax office of the Nea Ionia district in the city of Volos. We chose to torch the tax archives, and poured records with gasoline and lit them on fire. Our goal was to expand the flames throughout the whole of the building, but due to lack of oxygen the fire didn’t spread. Next time we’ll be more cautious.

- The reasons why we chose to target the tax office are self-evident. Our only debt to the main predatory mechanism of the State is its destruction.

- Action replaces tears.

- We take action to overcome our fears.

- We will not wait for any condition to become ripe.

- We will not wait for any society to wake up.

- We will not wait for any ‘revolutionary’ to revolutionize oneself.

We urge anyone who doesn’t want to live a slavish life, anyone who consciously opposes this aging world, to let go of the miseries and ideologized inactivity, and act aggressively.

Let us be the ones who start to determine the current event agenda.

Athens: Responsibility claim for Molotov attack on police station, in remembrance of Revolutionary Struggle member Lambros Foundas (Greece)

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Via contrainfo

“With torches blown out long time ago, my old comrades walk with sidesteps in the pupils of my eyes… I close my mouth tightly and scream… That’s when they savagely invaded my arteries dragging the broken flagpole, and there, in the eighth artery, in the small cavity of the heart where my dead comrades are asleep, I give my battle in whispers…”

You need to push your acts to their most extreme limits; to put yourself to the test in struggle, with your entire being on combatant alert; to find yourself in assemblies, demonstrations, wildcat strikes, and barricades, just like Lambros did; to be on time for conspiratorial dates, present in the mapping of the enemy and the city, aware of the necessity for resupply, prepared to lube firearms, to throw yourself wholeheartedly into the fight, like thunder…

You should initiate all those processes, and whatever their start may be make sure to get a good ending, because history remains scanty if we don’t touch upon it… (more…)

Korydallos Prison: Banner-drop by anarchist prisoners of the 4th wing in solidarity with hungerstrikers in the hospital section (Greece)

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Greek prisons:
“An act dedicated to our neighbours who are living in hell; from inside Koridallos”
Since February 17th, 2014, nearly 180 patient inmates at Aghios Pavlos ‘hospital’ in Koridallos prison are on strike, refusing meals and medications, to protest the horrific conditions.

Anarchists in the fourth wing of Koridallos men’s prison hung a banner out from the windows of ‘their’ cells, which are located directly opposite the prison hospital. The banner reads: “Strength, you guys! Break the sickening status quo you are experiencing (A)”. Hospital patients saw the banner and liked it a lot.

Strength to the prisoners’ struggle in Koridallos prison hospital!

Text of the anarchist Spiros Mandilas about the Anarchist Squat Nadir (Greece)

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

Lately, various interior matters taking place in Anarchist Squat Nadir, have been published, because of two or three people, thought they should publish a misinformative text of breakaway, in order to justify their cowardice or their failure.

Therefore, since a matter has been published, I owe too, to explain in public what has happened. Especially, since through this text, they accuse me of their breakaway.

Those people, after alienating some comrades from the squat, with their manners and their behavior, they tried to distort the political characteristics of Nadir. So, they started talking about communism, nechayevism, democratic fights, and generally, some things far from the political analysis and nature of the Nadir squat. Recently, those two or three people, even tried to isolate me from the convention’s decisions. (more…)

Greece: Update on comrade Mihalis Nikolopoulos (Athens)

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

via interarma:

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.

Athens: Text concerning the hunger-thirst strike of anarchist hostages of the 4th wing of Koridallos prisons (Greece)

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

via actforfree:

The following text is a presentation of what followed the incident with and also some general thoughts surrounding the institution of incarceration and how we stand across it as anarchists. Our desire was for it to come out earlier, but our transfer to another wing, the beating of Giannis by the CCF and various other prison matters delayed it.

On 13/12/13, when the yard closed we returned to human-guard Giannis Milonas a small percentage of the violence he applies everyday while holding a key. This specific guy insisted on his quarrelsome behavior when some comrades called him out on the ironic comments he made the day before.

This incident was, for the service, the reason to break up our community which had become a constant thorn for them. In the recent times there have been numerous clashes since we were trying with various ways and for matters we considered nodal, (hunger strike of communists from Turkey, the placing of barbedwire above the yards) to sabotage, to the measure that is possible, the function of the prison.

Information update about repression (Greece)

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

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…)

Christodoulos Xiros, member of 17N has gone underground (Greece)

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Christodoulos Xiros, who is a member of the Revolutionary Organisation 17 November, has gone underground, after he did not return to prison after his 3 days leave. The comrade sent this letter and video:

“Better an hour of freedom, than forty years of slavery and prison.”

Because the known crocodiles of the mass Media will start to cry about the lost rights, and will, as always, ask for blood in the arena, I have the following to say:

First of all, your democracy died a long time ago and the abortion that has remained is so blatantly fascist that the corners of the swastika protrude.

So do not pretend to be honourers and protectors at the same time as you murder youth for 1.40 euro and don’t give a damn. Not for us, you fraudsters of the Media, mouthpieces of the lenders, collaborators of the 4th Reich.

It is natural that my leaving causes panic and terror to you and those you serve!

But not to society and the people.

You are against us, you are lackeys of those who destroyed us and this is now in the conscience of everyone.

You cannot fool us any more. (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…)

Inter Arma’s announcement about being targeted by the lackeys of anti-terrorist agency (Greece)

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

The past two days, we have read in various police snitching websites and newspaper columns, targeted leaks by the anti-terrorist agency, which connect Inter Arma with the FAI/IRF”s projects “Phoenix” and “Green Nemesis” and claim that these are all part of the same guerrilla campaign. These specific snitches are known for targeting the comrades who participate in diffusing militant anarchist theory and action. The enemy has long ago realized the role that counter-information and translation projects play in the diffusion of Black International and in the communication between guerrilla formations all around the world. This oppression strategy, is nothing more than a known war tactic· the silencing of the opponent’s transmitters.

Projects like Inter Arma, have been targeted again in the past. We remind you that during “Ardire” operation in Italy, two counter-information projects (Culmine, ParoleArmate) and one publishing project (Edizioni Cerbero) had been hit by repression, a situation which resulted in many of them being pre-trial detained for many months. It is also known that the states of Greece and Italy co-operate against their common inner enemy.

We will not go even an inch back from our positions, nor will we change the nature of our project. We participate in an international network of similar projects and we support militant anarchy’s groups, prisoners and guerrilla cells. We have made our choice and we tend to keep our word.

For New Anarchy and the Black International!

“Green Nemesis” project: Sabotage against Coca-cola & Nestle products by FAI/IRF (Greece)

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

from InterArma, click for video and picture.

“GREEN NEMESIS” PROJECT
I. SILENCE IS NOT GOLD.

We break the silence. Our life looks like a frozen product ready to be sold. We live in the concrete metropolises of your civilization, we submissively execute the orders of the managers, the bosses, the superiors, we operate like programmed robots, we breathe the polluted air of your factories, we wander and die on the high speed highways of your commodities, we believe in the false avatars of wealth, we desire what the advertisements command us to desire, we fall in love via screens, we communicate via keyboards, we imprison ourselves inside walls and storefronts, serial numbers and barcodes. That’s it… We break free from your prison. We are aware of the fact that everybody talks today about the financial crisis’ curse. The preachers of politics are attempting to rectify the numbers, to improve statistics, to invent the social formulas of treatment and promises of salvation.

Nobody mentions, however, that economy, the domination of wealth in social relationships, is an achievement of civilization that you taught and fed us with, all these years.

Meanwhile, nobody seems concerned about the murder of nature, the torture and killing of the animals and generally about the extermination of the human being itself caused by the totalitarianism of science of technology, its laboratory experiments, the nuclear energy, the radioactive “accidents”, the GE products, the cannibalism of massive meat production industry, the pollution of the oceans, the chemical weapons, the genetic manipulation, the deforestation… (more…)

Athens: Responsibility claim for explosion at the Kifissia tax office (Greece)

Monday, December 9th, 2013

via contrainfo & parabellum

In the early hours of Thursday, September 26, 2013 we placed an explosive device at the tax office located in Kifissia [a northern suburb of Athens], as a first response to the efforts of the State to be portrayed as the referee and punisher of its Golden-Dawn employees, and its creation of a spectacle that can serve as a smokescreen, aiming to conceal its own fascist style of governance, as well as the murderous new austerity measures. Fascism, just like presidential parliamentary democracy, is a model of Power that’s based on the current economic organization and promotes capitalist interests. The policies which are implemented are those mandated by the free market, interests of which will never be democratic—in reality, we neither see democracy and freedom applied in working environments, nor in everyday life, which is organized by capitalism. Modern totalitarianism is imposed by concentration camps, shootings of migrant farm workers, as happened in Manolada [in the Peloponnese], the shutdown of public hospitals, layoffs, movie-inspired invasions of squats, starvation wages, the imprisonment of fighters, the defamation of leaderless social struggles, the public stigmatization of [alleged]HIV-positive women, tax raids, and the existing and future memoranda with the IMF/ECB/EU Troika.
