No experience can be summarized with a bit of ink and paper.
Even less the experience of someone who decided to provoke the dominators with every possible way and any place. There are no pages which can effectively illustrate someone who died while fighting against authority. Inside these pages therefore, is not the whole of Mauri’s life.
We do not condense all of his experiences and the moments our paths met.
We honestly desire that this is not the last collection of his writings.
We are not owners of his thoughts, the events he experienced or his analyses.
We hope that more material related to him will come to light, not as a fetish, not as a day on the calendar, but probably as a memory longing its moment.
MAURI, THE INSURRECTIONISTS DO NOT FORGET YOU

PDF: ‘A Conversation Between Anarchists’ – A discussion about tactics, theory and practice between the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and a few anarchists in Mexico

A CONVERSATION BETWEEN ANARCHISTS
What follows is a conversation between the imprisoned members of the CCF and a number of anarchists from Mexico. The questions are asked by various comrades of the country, not only by those of the editorial group Conspiración Ácrata. We thank the comrades who helped us with the huge job of translation from Greek into Spanish, and the comrades who helped us in making the conversation with the imprisoned comrades possible. Solidarity greetings to all of them and to our comrades of the CCF!
This dialogue came out for the first time in May 2012, in Spanish, in the Mexican anarchist magazine Conspiración Ácrata.

In August 2008, Thessaloniki anarchists Vangelis Chrysochoidis and Polykarpos Georgiadis were arrested alongside infamous bank robber—and “the most wanted man in Greece” —Vassilis Palaiocostas. The authorities charged them and others with the kidnapping of powerful industrialist Giorgos Mylonas, which took place that summer and ended with Mylonas’ “release” in exchange for a ransom of 5 million euros. Georgiadis has written a number of open letters (here, here, and here), but Chrysochoidis hasn’t because—like Simos Seisidis, for example—he has no interest in doing so and doesn’t really consider himself a “man of letters.”
The trial for the kidnapping began on February 2, 2010 and ended with sentences of 22 years and 3 months in prison for both Chrysochoidis and Georgiadis, which sentences took into account a number of robberies they were also charged with. A brief summary of the trial can be read (in Spanish) here, while Palaiocostas’ open letter in support of the two comrades is here.
Chrysochoidis statement to the court has already been translated into English here, but Georgiadis’ statement hasn’t yet appeared anywhere in English. More recently, the comrades’ appeal hearing (summaries of which can be read here and here, ran from April 24 to May 16, 2012, and ended with each of their sentences being reduced to 12 years and 10 months.
Georgiadis: Even if you think I’m making an apologia, and while the word “apologia” has a specific connotation, I consider my words to be a kind of defense—not just regarding the legal aspect, but also concerning my political identity and political positions, which I believe are playing a decisive role in my situation. That I now find myself in the dock is a function of my political discourse and political positions of approximately the past 15 years of belonging to this milieu. Therefore, I first want to touch on some things that have already been mentioned here by witnesses, the plaintiff, and you. I’ll also comment on two or three other things beyond the legal aspect of the case. (more…)

Note from WOS: It goes without saying that we do not share the analysis of the Europol or of the press that are reported below. What we do consider important is to be aware of international police cooperation. It is also worth mentioning that what follows is a decent summary of recent anarchist action especially in Mexico, and we have added links where they may be helpful.
the press, translated by waronsociety:
Alarm in Europe due to Mexican Anarchists
The European police seem to be more interested in fighting anarchism (which they automatically equate with terrorism) than narco-trafficking. They demonstrate this in a cooperation accord which will soon be negotiated between the European police and the Mexican government, and the report on “terrorist trends in the EU” which is about to be published. A recount of the attacks in Italy and Mexico would explain Europol’s alarm.
BRUSSELS (Proceso) — The police force of the European Union (EU), Europol, intends for the cooperation accord it will negotiate with Enrique Peña Nieto’s government to include the exchange of information about anarchist groups operating in Mexico.
Last October 4th, the EU Cabinet approved Europol’s beginning of accord negotiations with the Mexican government. Its primary–but not sole–component would be the fight against narco-trafficking.
The eventual collaboration of the Mexican and European police against the anarchists (a tendency toward what they automatically qualify as terrorist) would fall within the framework of European politics of fighting terrorism, according to a Europol document dated April 4, 2012 of which Proceso has a copy.

585 inmates at the Larissa penitentiary went on hunger strike in protest of the detention conditions they face, asserting satisfaction of their demands.
They already had stopped accepting common prison meals last week,demanding the food to be redistributed to people in need of it.
As the prisoners themselves have announced with an open letter, their demands and allegations are the following:
– better health care
– no reference or mention of any statute-barred disciplinary offense.
– inadequacy of social workers
– legal detention of immigrant inmates for an excessive period of 2 months in Larissa penitentiary, despite their entitlement for conditional release.
We demand these conditions to be changed and for those who are responsible to be replaced also.
The participation in this movement is massive according to the prisoners themselves, they say that the majority of the inmates in the penitentiary are on a strike. This includes all inmates from section B and C, one hundred inmates from section A and, as of today, 25 more from section E.
Lately, the government has shown it’s lack of tolerance by using special forces operations, that resulted in the beating of several inmates in most prisons in Greece.
But the hunger strikes in Larissa penitentiary that started at 29 of April, are but one of the few but efficient ways to resist, that the inmates can use.
Our support/solidarity with their fight is self-evident.
White Cells imposed by left winger Mr Roupakiotis ["justice minister"] won’t make us give in.
Our thoughts are with those who fight for dignity.

5th April 2013: 4th trial for the Conspiracy Cells of Fire case.
One more trial for the actions of the CCF began at Koridallos prisons.
Besides the members of the Conspiracy accused in the same case are also Dimitris Politis, Giannis Mihailidis, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Alexandros Mitrousias, Kostas Sakkas and Stella Antoniou (who are also accused in the third trial which is taking place as well) and Kostandina Karakatsani and Panagiotis Masouras.
Theofilos Mavropoulos read a common statement of the now ten members of the CCF, after which all members of the organization left the room.
“As I have stated in a previous court and in older public texts, I have been next to the comrades of the CCF as a solidarian anarchist, without however being a member of the Conspiracy. From the first moment of my arrest after the shoot out with the cops in Pefki, the comrades of the Conspiracy stood next to me like brothers. Inside prison we shared common worries, tensions and forged our steel passion for liberation through our common escape attempt in December 2011. Today for me the CCF is an inseparable piece of my thought, my desires and my personal mutiny for anarchy.
This is why as of today, here in your court, I state that I join the CCF and share together with the imprisoned and non arrested members the endless course to the anarchist insurrection. Participating now in the Conspiracy, I will read a collective statement for this trial. All of us, the members of the CCF, want to clarify some things.
In this trial, besides us who have taken the responsibility for our participation and support of the Conspiracy, all other accused do not have, neither have any relation with the charges attributed to them.
They never were, neither could ever be members of the Conspiracy.
An ocean of disagreements, perceptions and choices divides us…
The CCF and FAI is an international network of anarchists of praxis
who stand against the enemy with the certainty of those who play it all or nothing and refuse the proof of innocence and legal mitigations.
The Conspiracy and the Informal Anarchist Federation through their hundreds of attacks express the black anarchy which sets fire to the silence of the many and cowardice of the reformists.
All the charges in your indictments are a piece of the anarchist history and the armed course of the Conspiracy through the social desert of mass subjugation.
It is our compass in the unmapped unknown of the anarchist insurrection.
It is the unique moment where theory meets practice.
It is there where the law dies and anarchy is born.
It is there where the sounds of the explosions and the gun shots break the calmness of the crowd.
These moments are our moments. These history is our history.
A history which cannot be put on trial, neither finishes inside the court room.
We are the gasoline, the gun powder, the detonator, the bullet, the gun.
The only thing you will get from us is war.
The Conspiracy is, was, itself.
This is our Anarchy”.
G.Mihailidis read a common statement of his and D.Politis and then left the procedure.
“Give us a copy”, asked the chairman, “this statement is not for you”, answered D.Politis, while the cops were cuffing them.
“We state that: We refuse to participate in the procedure of the court, not only because it is a mean of the state to demean and bend the anarchist struggle, not only because its function aims at the respite of anarchist action,but mainly because we do not recognize any institutional representative of the bourgeois democracy to judge people.
As anarchist revolutionaries we stand hostile against the bourgeios justice which sends people to the rot of imprisonment in order to defend the criminal lawful order of capitalism. Also, we support the anarchist revolutionary war in every of its forms.
We are part of the violent and guerilla action and will defend it as an inseparable part of the struggle.”
The trial continued on April 15th.

We continue to respond in a political manner to the political decision toward censorship that all of the minions of Capital and totalitarianism undertook silently
On Thursday noon, April 11th, 2013 the rector of the National Technical University of Athens (Athens Polytechnic School), Simos Simopoulos, took the political decision to repress counter-information media by cutting off network access to Athens IMC (athens.indymedia.org) and 98FM self-organized radio station (Radiozones of Subversive Expression). He thus undertook the political responsibility to impose censorship and stifle the expression and free movement of ideas of all those who resist the contemporary fascistization and social impoverishment. Simopoulos—being the second Rector of Repression after Markatos, 18 years ago—decided to be the one to intervene in place of the state power, and what’s more, he undertook the role of mouthpiece facilitating the work of the Repression minister Dendias, the cops and the Nazis. (more…)

The Greek regime’s attempt to silence the Athens Indymedia website and 98FM is yet another repressive attack against self-organised infrastructure that challenges the existent order. It’s no secret that democracy will use dictatorial solutions when confronted by the subversive libertarian forces.
Solidarity and complicity with Athens IMC, 98FM and all those spaces and individuals in Greece which refuse to just shut up and accept the dominant discourse of mainstream bullshit and corporate hype.

EXTERNALITY AND OBJECTIVITY
10/04/2013 – The Deanery of NTUA (National Technical University of Athens) loses the trial against EETT’s (Hellenic Telecommunications and Post Commission) lawsuit related to past broadcasting of Radiozones at 98.1 from the NTUA premises, as well as about the broadcasts of “Radio Entassi” that occasionally emits from an adjoining terrace near the frequency of the mainstream radio station “SKAI”. It’s another procedural repression attempt that is added to precedent persecutions against Athens Indymedia and Radiozones of Subversive Expression.
11/04/2013 – The Dean takes the initiative to cut the power supply to “Radio Entassi”. At the same time, the internet connection for both Athens Indymedia and Radiozones of Subversive Expression is interrupted despite the fact that Radiozones broadcast at 93.8 a frequency totally separated to the case file. How the lost court case on radio emissions has developed into the silencing of all online counter information media based on the NTUA campus remains unknown. (more…)

We received your proposal for the counter-information gathering at your self-organised space on April 12-13, our apologies for not being able to respond sooner about it. Our inability to travel to Thessaloniki at this time meant that we prepared a written contribution to be distributed, whilst some of our circle made their further critical thoughts into another text. So here you’ll find two texts in English, Greek and Italian, which are posted openly in the hope of spreading discussion and action ever further.
Recently we read the text of Alfredo Cospito to the CCF which we found ourselves very much in agreement with, particularly this section:
“Communication cannot but be carried out through action and this is why we do not have to assign it in some way to the professionals of speech. It is vital, of course, that the news and ideas go around the world. It is necessary however that we avoid in any way the transformation into bureaucracy of a procedure that must remain free from the elite of those who specialize in information.”
Always next to and part of the combative anarchist tendency!
Always in memory of Ryo!
Greece: Call for international solidarity with Indymedia Athens and Radiozones of Subversive Expression 98FM
Sunday, April 14th, 2013
Since the 11th of April, Athens IMC and 98FM radio station are under repression by the State. In particular, the rector of Athens Polytechnic School, Simos Simopoulos, unplugged their internet connectivity, thus disabling access to servers hosted in university premises. While the authorities insist upon this gagging, the self-organized projects of Athens IMC and 98fm radio station claim their political right to transmit freely through the Polytechnic campus.
In a large assembly on Saturday 13/4 in Athens, both collectives informed people of latest developments, and it was decided to call for a week of nationwide and international actions of solidarity with Athens IMC and 98FM radio station, from the 15th to the 21st of April 2013.
Also, in Athens, a protest gathering was scheduled for Monday 15/4 by 9am at the central square of Zografou campus.
Spread this message to anyone willing to act in defense of antagonist infrastructure and freedom of expression. This is a political attack and will be answered accordingly.

ECO CAMP BACKGROUND
Eco-Camp is an activity organized by Mobile Anarchist School with the help by Local Autonomous Network (LAN) both active in the Philippines. Last April 2012 was the first camping held in Tanay Rizal, Philippines. It was attended by various collectives and individuals totaling around 40 people who participated the various activities and discussions in the camp. The objective of the eco-camp was to discuss the different issues confronting our current society and to find solidarity actions that can help expose and popularize our issues.
After series of activities in 2012, the LAN decided to expand its activities on ecological issues due to concrete manifestation of the crisis impacting the archipelago.
The second eco-camp gathering was organized by LAN and the Mobile Anarchist School in March 2013 to heighten our education campaign and to strengthen the relationship with other affinity groups and build an international network better able to work towards intensifying our impact by making solidarity actions globally.

Excerpt from Theofilos Mavropoulos’ Statement at Session 1 (Friday, April 5) of Fourth CCF Trial (Greece)
Monday, April 8th, 2013
Received from This is our Job:
“As I’ve already stated during the previous trial and in the texts I’ve released over time, I stood beside my comrades in the Fire Cells Conspiracy as anarchist in solidarity, but without being a member of the Conspiracy.
From the first moment of my arrest, after exchanging gunshots with the pigs in Pefki, my comrades in the Conspiracy stood beside me as brothers and sisters. Inside prison, we have shared concerns, anxieties, and tensions. We forged our passion from steel—a passion for freedom—after the escape we attempted together in December 2011.
For me, right now the Fire Cells Conspiracy is already an inseparable part of my thinking, my desires, and my personal rebellion for anarchy. Therefore, here in these courts of yours, I declare that as of today I am joining the Fire Cells Conspiracy, and I share the endless path of anarchist insurrection together with the imprisoned members and those who haven’t been arrested….”

Information via Contra-Info. Also read the Oral declaration to the court by Pola Roupa, member of Revolutionary Struggle – October 24th, 2011.
On April 3rd, 2013 the judgment on the Revolutionary Struggle case was a slight improvement of the prosecutor’s proposal. The court’s decision on the Revolutionary Struggle case:
Defendants who have denied participation in the organization
- Acquittal of Marie Beraha, Sarantos Nikitopoulos and Kostas Katsenos of all charges (on benefit of doubt).
- Conviction of Vaggelis Stathopoulos and Christoforos Kortesis for alleged participation in the organization.
Admitted members of Revolutionary Struggle
- Acquittal of Nikos Maziotis, Pola Roupa and Kostas Gournas of the accusation of ‘directing a terrorist organization.’
- Conviction of Nikos Maziotis, Pola Roupa and Kostas Gournas for ‘simple synergy’ with the actions of Revolutionary Struggle (without a shred of evidence concerning their involvement in specific actions, but rather applying the Nazi principle of joint liability).
To sum up, Revolutionary Struggle member Nikos Maziotis was sentenced to 86 years’ imprisonment; his sentence was merged into 50 years. Revolutionary Struggle members Pola Roupa and Kostas Gournas were both sentenced to 87 years; each sentence was merged into 50 years and 6 months. For all three of them, the maximum prison term is 25 years (which are typically served either as a full sentence or by day wages in prisons, or after the completion of 3/5 of the prison term, when a prisoner can be granted conditional release under specific conditions).
Vaggelis Stathopoulos and Christoforos Kortesis were sentenced to 8 and 7 years’ imprisonment, respectively. The sentence against Vaggelis Stathopoulos was merged into 7 years and 6 months.
In addition, for all five convicted anarchists, the judges’ decision provided for deprivation of their political rights (5 years for the three admitted members of Revolutionary Struggle, and 3 years for the other two anarchists), as well as non-suspensive effect of appeal.
While Nikos Maziotis and Pola Roupa are on the run, Kostas Gournas, Vaggelis Stathopoulos and Christoforos Kortesis were immediately taken to prison. The militant slogans of the audience and the clenched fists of the three anarchist fighters were the last moments of the trial.
Solidarity with all anarchists imprisoned or persecuted by the Greek State! The battle for freedom is far from over.
Long live Revolutionary Struggle!

Session 34, March 21st.
In this session appeared again the head of the Anti-terrorist force who had organized most of the oppressive operations against the CCF. At some point of his testimony he mentioned there are publications which target him and members of his family, this is why he asked for the trial minutes in order to file lawsuits. Also, he mentioned once more that the CCF is a network of autonomous cells of direct action. More specifically he said that each cell can consist of 4-5 people, while he referred to a recent hit (the blowing up of an atm in order to expropriate it), the responsibility of which was claimed by the cell of FAI “lone wolf”.
Session 35, March 22nd.
In this session the head of the anti-terrorists testified about the arrests in Pireus, Nea smirni and Kallithea, about weapons and explosives.
Session 36, March 27th.
In this session continued the testimony of the head of the anti-terrorist concerning the weapons and explosives found in Nea Smirni and the arrests which took place there, in Pireus and in Kallithea. At some point he even mentioned in the court that the minister of protection of the citizen (public order) was informed of he operation by the anti-terrorists, and it was he who gave the order for the arrests. The head of the anti-terrorists also confirmed that during the first oppressive operation against the CCF (halandri case 2009) an arrest warrant had gone out for a non-existing person, a fact that proves the witch-hunt set up against people who had nothing to do with the CCF. Besides, in the frames of the arrests that took place for the CCF, not only the comrades of the Conspiracy have been arrested but also dozens of irrelevant people.
Session 37, March 29th.
In this session the comrades of the Conspiracy did not appear in the court and sent a statement in which they refused to appear as a minimal act of reaction to the military style raid of the EKAM (special forces) the night before in the cells of Koridallos prisons. We must point out here that the night before there was a raid by the armed EKAM in the prisons and more specifically in the 1st wing where the comrades of the Conspiracy are being held. All cells were open and cops came in with their bulletproof shield and pointing their guns, led the prisoners out in the hall with their hands over their heads and then cuffed them. The hooded ones of the EKAM showed special treatment to the comrades of the Conspiracy, who they separated from the other prisoners and held alone. Also, the search in the cells of the CCF was done by the EKAM, contrary to the others who were searched by regular prison guards.
The next day (the day of the court) the comrades together with the other prisoners refused to return to their cells in the afternoon as a reaction to the cops raid. The continuous raids being carried out in the prisons are because of the noise caused by the recent escape of the 11 from Trikala prisons. Also, about a month ago the Media had made an extensive report about escape plans with a helicopter, which according to the journalists was being organized by the members of the CCF from inside prison.
Solidarians to the CCF

The DB burns as a solidarity token for imprisoned anarchists in Greece!
In the early hours of February 27th, in search of a suitable target for a solidarity action with Nikos Romanos, Dimitris Politis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos and Yannis Michailidis, we spotted a vehicle belonging to the Deutsche Bahn in the neighbourhood of Prenzlauer Berg, in Berlin, which we wrapped up in the flames of international solidarity.
At the Deutsche Bahn AG (German railway corporation), ten managers of its subsidiary DB International have bribed public officials for engineering services contracts in several African States and in Greece, as the Frankfurt judiciary confirmed (according to a report of the ‘Süddeutsche Zeitung’ in April 2010).
Since 2008, in a number of legal battles, it has been documented that the German companies Siemens, MAN Ferrostaal and Deutsche Bahn have bought off politicians in Greece on a large scale, and thus ‘financed’ political decisions in their favour. So, the Siemens Group alone ‘invested’ since the mid-1990s and for about a decade 15 million euros per year in Greece, in order to propitiate in this way politicians of both major parties, Nea Dimokratia and PASOK.
While another Deutsche Bahn subsidiary, the Schenker logistics company, transports war supplies for the Bundeswehr (German armed forces), the Deutsche Bahn and the Defense Ministry are running a symbiotic cooperation: “The BwFuhrparkService GmbH has developed and implemented an economical and customer-oriented mobility concept for the German military. [...] The company is a joint venture of the Ministry of Defense as well as the Deutsche Bahn AG. The BwFuhrparkService guarantees customized logistic concepts, reduction of costs and an increase of the utilization and provision of secure vehicles. As a mobility services provider of the German military, the company offers comprehensive experience in the management of more complex fleet vehicles and the production of individual fleet solutions” (excerpts from dbfuhrpark.de/index.php?id=131).
In January 2013, Dr. Rüdiger Grube spoke on the topic ‘The Deutsche Bahn AG – Current Challenges and Perspectives’ at the military academy of the German armed forces, while 61-year-old Moorburger—chairman of the board of the Deutsche Bahn in Berlin since May 2009—explained to over 200 guests the DB AG corporate strategy and processes.
On the 16th of April, the DB Mobility Logistics and the Berlin’s BFD (‘Vocational Advancement Service’ for the education and training of military personnel) will hold a Soldiers Day under the motto ‘No job like any other.’ The event is aimed at men and women soldiers who are interested in being trained and employed by the Deutsche Bahn.
Therefore, we classify the Deutsche Bahn as a de facto belligerent power and component of the German military/NATO, that will not allow any social changes in Greece but will rather go to any lengths in order to assist the suppression of a revolt. The Deutsche Bahn is one of the German enterprises that profit from the crisis in Greece, as was its predecessor, the Reichsbahn during German fascism.
Last night’s fire was meant to show to the prisoners Nikos Romanos, Dimitris Politis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos and Yannis Michailidis that we are aware of their arrest and torture on the 1st of February after the double robbery in Kozani, and here, in the heart of the beast, we will try everything possible for the downfall of capitalism and its helpers.
Long live Anarchy! Death to all States!
Chaotics of the Night
Sunday, March 17th, 2013
On Sunday, 10th March an anarchist guerilla group placed an incendiary device at the entrance of the offices of Swift Mail express courier’s company in Pagrati, Athens. This is the shop where the company’s owner wife Reklitou Fotini works. Based on her detailed statement in 2010, the cops were able to mobilize their forces and arrest the comrades of CCF, who on that day sent a mail bomb to the embassy of Mexico using Swift Mail.
The anarcho-nihilist guerilla group “Untouched Revenge Cell, FAI-IRF” claimed responsibility for the act by publishing a communiqué. The comrades dedicated the attack to the imprisoned anarchist guerillas in Greece, Italy, Russia, Holland, Mexico, Indonesia and Belarus.

On Monday, 4th March an anarchist guerilla group burned down an ATM of the Commercial Bank in Trizinia area, Greece. The initial target was the expropriation of the ATM’s money in order to fund anarchist direct actions but the incendiary device was not enough to breach the ATM’s concrete armor, so the comrades burned it down. The anarchist guerilla group “Lone Wolf Cell, FAI-IRF” claimed responsibility of the attack by publishing a communiqué.
