London: Disruption of public meeting between SWP & SYRIZA in solidarity with imprisoned comrades (UK)
Tuesday, July 14th, 2015
Insurrection News received and transmits:
In London on Saturday 11th July the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) hosted a public meeting attended by around 1000 people with a member of Syriza’s Central Committee.
Driven by a rejection of the SWP’s Patriarchal rape apologist authoritarian politics and to make clear to Syriza that the imprisonment of fellow Revolutionary Combatants will not go peacefully no matter what place of the world they run to, a small group of Anarchist co-conspirators made the decision to disrupt the meeting.
We successfully made it through their lines of burly ‘minders’ to reach the stage, where we unfurled a banner stating ‘Solidarity with Imprisoned Anarchists, not Syriza’ and chanted anti-prison slogans.
During our escape we were viciously attacked, one comrade had their hair pulled, the banner was stolen, we received death threats, compared to Nazis, there was damage to clothing etc.
This level of violence was unexpected, but revealed the Authoritarian nature of the SWP. Members of the crowd objected to the violence enacted on us, and hopefully this will make evident to them what kind of organisation the SWP is.
Fire to the Prisons!
No Peace for Syriza while our Comrades rot in their jails!
For Social Revolution and a People in Arms!
Network of Revolutionary Cells take responsibility for two arson attacks against police vehicles in the context of the fight against ‘Operation Fenix’ (Czech Republic)

SRB (Network of Revolutionary Cells communique: Police car torched in response to Operation Fenix
In the early hours of Saturday, July 4, 2015 we torched a police car outside the Praha-Bubny police station. This was in response to the police and state repression against anarchists. Since April 28, 2015 when the police launched ‘Operation Fenix‘, four anarchists have been arrested and held in custody. Wild Heart Cell sends a message with this sabotage: We will not tolerate such violence by the state and we will fight against it!
With the launch of ‘Operation Fenix’ cops have declared war against the anarchist movement. They thought they could scare us into giving up. They have made a mistake, we will never give up. We are moving into counterattack.
They want to suffocate the resistance but they only add more fuel to the fire.

SRB (Network of Revolutionary Cells) Communique: Police car torched in solidarity with Alešem Kočím
On Wednesday, July 1st, 2015, a police car was set on fire in Prague. It occurred on the outskirts of the park near the Srašnická metro station. As part of the ongoing struggle an SRB cell attacked the police car to send a fiery greeting to Alešem Kočím. For his anarchist beliefs in class warfare, Alešem fell into the hands of the state. On the 28th April, 2015 he was detained by the police during ‘Operation Fenix’ and was subsequently charged with possession of illegal weapons. He now sits in custody as a prisoner of the state.
The state and it’s institutions have a huge arsenal of weapons and have created a monopoly on their use. They constantly use them in order to keep the capitalist construct in motion – the network of exploitative and oppressive relations. Anarchists do not accept the state’s monopoly on weapons. Anarchist praxis confronts the values the defend and reproduce state violence. State violence against anarchists builds insurgent violence.
Alešem Kočím is an anarchist who disrupted the state’s monopoly on the use of weapons by being armed. SRB supports such a stance. While Alešem is in the hands of the enemy this limits his potential for future struggle but we do not intend to accept this situation. Incendiary words, fire, weapons and explosives – it’s all part of our struggle. Revolutionary struggle against the violence perpetrated by the state to preserve the misery of capitalism. So far we have only used fire to ignite cars. Next time however will not be the same.

Athens: ‘Combative Anarchy / FAI-IRF’ takes responsibility for arson attack against SYRIZA offices in anarchist prisoner solidarity action (Greece)
Tuesday, June 30th, 2015
Combative Anarchy / FAI – IRF takes responsibility for the incendiary attack against SYRIZA offices in Kypseli. We torched the offices of these politicians opportunists as a first response to the rejection of the educational leave of our comrade Nikos Romanos and the vindictive extension of the hostage situation of the wife of the comrade of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Gerasimos Tsakalos. The world of authority is here. In the hands of immigrants marked with numbers, in the summits of economists, the incessant propaganda of journalists, the ministries of the “left governance”, in courts, police stations, the villas of the rich. Anarchist insurrection does not aim to reform capitalism, nor stops the action depending on the political administrator of the machines of death and exploitation. The dawn of our time will come upon the ruins of capitalist society. Until then, the only thing left to us is the continuous and uncompromising anarchist struggle.
STRENGTH TO THOSE WHO ARM THEIR NEGATIONS! STRENGTH TO ALL ANARCHIST PRISONERS!
PS) During the hunger strike of the imprisoned comrades in Chile, we torched a diplomatic vehicle in Ano Pefki, wanting to heat their hearts with the fire of anarchist solidarity. Get well comrades.

Athens: The Earth Liberation Front takes responsibility for an incendiary attack against a poultry company in solidarity with the prisoners struggle (Greece)
Sunday, April 19th, 2015
Inter Arma received and translated:
On the evening of the Easter day, 12 to 13 of April, we attacked using 3 incendiary devices with time delay, aiming to destroy the building’s entrance and 3 vehicles (1 truck and 2 vans) belonging to a poultry company in Agios Pavlos Str. in Peristeri, as an action of solidarity with the imprisoned hunger strikers in Greek prisons.
Strength to all those who continue, to the imprisoned members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and those who are recovering, having stood with dignity and consistency against the state and in this specific timing, against the left administrators and exponents of authority – who (and this is clear for all those who don’t connive) since the first day they gripped the governmental seats have made their intentions clear, with highlight, so far, the tactical administration of the hunger strike and the eviction of the occupied University’s of Athens deanery.
IMMEDIATE satisfaction of the hunger strikers’ demands:
Abolition of paragraphs 187 and 187A of the counter-terrorist law
Abolition of the hood-law
Abolition of type C prisons
Immediate release of the heavily handicapped Savvas Ksiros
Restriction of DNA use
We chose this specific target as we believe that practical opposition to the non-human animals commercialization industry cannot be excluded from the fight against the state, the capital and every kind of authoritarian superstructure. The practice of detention is the same, equally rejectable whether it has to do with human prisons – “correctional institutions”, concentration camps or if it concerns structures of the meat and animal products industry .
The timing of our attack was no coincidence. It was a moment while the human-mass was still sunk in sloth, having done the previous days their bit towards the Church and the holy ghosts that haunt and define their very existence. Every temple of society, physical or mental, every mold, every stereotype, every habit that reproduces, feeds or just reflects the numerous faces of power, is worth nothing more than being crushed.
Such a habit is the meat eating which has been established the exact same way that the practice of nature looting is established as “normal”, as we notice it taking place in Skouries, Chalkidiki, Italy (NO-TAV) and every place in the world.
Through this action of ours we respond to the call of Chilean comrades, whose actions have given us smiles so many times. Strength to Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores and Guillermo Durán, who are on hunger strike since April 14th.
At the same time, we are sending our own signal of solidarity and complicity to all those charged, imprisoned and suffering repression, having found themselves on the attack lines of ELF and ALF.
We’re sending out a call to every rebelling individual, every affinity group, every direct action cell, in order to intensify the attacks on all fronts, in any way they think suitable, by all means available.

Poland, Torun: “Solidarity with anarchist fighters who are on hunger strike in Greek prisons from 2.3 – Fire to the prisons!”
Thursday, April 2nd, 2015
In spontaneous response to the call from the Network of imprisoned social fighters we have performed a symbolic solidarity action – which took the shape of devastating the facade of the Greek embassy in Warsaw, Poland, on the morning of April 1st. Symbolic, because real solidarity is shown in everyday struggle against our enemies. Reputation of the Greek State is already stained so only facades were clean.
Revolutionary greetings from Warsaw!
Freedom to CCF relatives, and all prisoners in the world!
Wednesday, April 1st, 2015
I. On the 02/03 a fight against modern anti-terrorist policy begins in prisons, a policy reflected in a series of repressive laws that confirm that there is a war between the world of authority and the world of struggle.
Anarchists and communists prisoners, from Greece and Turkey, with their bodies as weapons, are on a hunger strike, having as common demands the following:
- The abolition of C type prisons
- The abolition of paragraphs 187 and 187A (anti-terrorist law)
- The abolition of the law that considers it a statutory offense when a crime is committed while a person’s characteristics are hidden
- The delimited usage of DNA as evidence
- The release of Savvas Ksiros
Meanwhile, the imprisoned members of CCF are also on a hunger strike, as well as Anggeliki Spyropoulou, demanding the release of Gerasimos’ and Christos’ Tsakalos relatives.
II. For the first time such an important situation has occurred, a situation which due to its overall characteristics and demands does not only contain the imprisoned fighters, but a big part of society, too. This specific situation, also due to the change of government, leaves us no room for complacency and makes distinct the necessity to raise mounds against the dominion of the state and capital and defend our communities. We have no illusions, we are not moved by their leftist rhetoric. Because the whips may have changed hands, they, however, leave the same marks on the repressed ones’ backs. We do not forget the recent invasions in fighters’ houses, the suicide committed by a detained Pakistani in the dungeons of their prisons, the vengeful imprisonments of the relatives of CCF’s members, the provocative statements made by the deputy minister of Citizen Protection Panousis. There are yet much more to see…
III. After many days of hunger strike the comrades have started being transferred to hospitals, where in some specific cases, the care being offered by the staff bears no resemblance with the medical care a hunger striker should have. The same applies to Fivos Charisis’ case, in which we saw that arrogance has no limits when the director of the pathological clinic of Tzaneio Hospital, Stelios Drimis, with excess pride, was willing to sign the comrade’s return to prison, putting the responsibility on him, as Foivos would not accept to be receive serum. This incident is not an isolated case, but, as we have seen in previous hunger strikes as well, it completes the picture of full of EKAM and EOM (special police units) hospitals, with the strikers being denied visiting and correspondence, doctors collaborating with the police, doctors testing the endurance of hunger strikers by bringing them food and treating them disparagingly, playing the role of torturer much better than the one of the doctor. This scum is one of the above cases. We cannot overlook that part of the medical community which stands to the occasion helping by every means, understanding the seriousness of such a struggle.
IV. On Saturday night of the 28th of March, we visited Stelios Drimis’ house in Nea Smyrni and placed an incendiary device (of low force) at the entrance. This action is a clear message to every potential torturer that nothing shall be done without consequences, nothing shall remain unanswered.
VICTORY TO THE STRUGGLE OF THE IMPRISONED HUNGER STRIKERS

Todo en las ciudades esta diseñado para promover y perpetuar el constante flujo de mercancía, humana y de la otra. Millones de pesos se invierten en remodelaciones de estaciones de trenes e inauguraciones de otras, en construcción y mantenimiento de rutas, en mecanismos tecnológicos de control y represión, en recursos para lxs sirvientes armadxs al servicio del poder. Pensando en esto es que el día de hoy
buscamos sabotear aunque sea por un instante el normal funcionamiento de los engranajes que sostienen la estructura de dominación, atacando el tramo que une las vías de Floresta con Villa Luro mediante un artefacto incendiario/explosivo.
No entraremos en el juego de que con estas acciones perjudicamos solo a lxs trabajadorxs. Hoy lo importante fue romper la normalidad asfixiante aprobada por la inmensa mayoría de la sociedad policial.
¡En directa solidaridad y complicidad con nuestrxs hermanxs de la Conspiración de las Células del Fuego que se encuentran en huelga de hambre en las prisiones griegas desde el 2 de marzo pasado, exigiendo la inmediata liberación de su entorno mas próximo! Se hace urgente accionar pues el estado de nuestrxs compañerxs es grave, prueba suficiente es que 6 de ellxs se encuentran en el hospital. ¡Solidaridad con Angeliki y con lxs demás huelguistas!
¡Fuerza a lxs compañerxs de Chile en este nuevo aniversario del Día del Joven Combatiente. Extendamos los disturbios por todas partes!
Concretemos las venganzas de lxs muertxs, presxs y torturadxs por luchar contra el putrefacto estado Argentino…

An evening event was organized on Monday, March 16 in Brussels by the “Initiative for solidarity with the Greece that resists” with the presence of a Greek politician (not the Syriza MP as announced but Epaminondas Marias, from the rightist party of the “Independent Greeks” – ANEL). Members of Secours Rouge/Red Aid intervened by speaking out, with leaflet distribution and deployment of a support banner for the demands of the Greek political prisoners on hunger strike (abolition of special repression laws, isolation prisons (Type C) and the release of Savvas Xiros, member of 17 November).
Santiago: Street intervention of agitation and solidarity / Intervención callejera de agitación y solidaridad ($hile)

Night of propaganda and agitation for a new March 29 (“Day of the young combatant”) and with messages of militant solidarity with our comrades in struggle within the prisons.
From the dignity of companero Juan Flores who was hit by prison-guards a few days ago in Chile, to the hunger strikes carried out by comrades of CCF and other comrades in Greece, to Jose Antunez and Javier Guerrero in Spain, through to the agitation and punishment in prisons in Italy against anarchist prisoners, our actions spread one international language: MEMORY, SOLIDARITY AND FIGHTING POWER.
No prison can stop the struggle for total liberation !!!

While social democratic reserves of the regime try to flatter us and ecstatic besotted petty bourgeois voters are dancing sirtaki at Syntagma, during demonstrations in favor of the government (!), the wolves that escaped the hunt come down to the city with rage…
It goes without saying that no faction of authoritarian potty politicians would ever be able to satisfy our wild desires. You’re talking about left government, we wish for the State to be destroyed. You’re promising salary increases, reduced taxes, jobs, we want the elimination of money, commodity and labor. You’re asking for “democratization of the security forces,” we want the cops dead on asphalt. You’re fighting for better conditions in the neighborhoods, but we want to just have fun on the flaming ruins of your cities. You do politics, we make war. Things are difficult dear perry politicians. You understand that there is a vast existential abyss between us and there is not much room for dialogue.
So, it is no wonder that on Monday 23/3, at dawn, the official day of the “neighborhood cop” return, we chose to offer the office of the local organization of the governing party into the flames of negation, in Patisia.
We dedicate this attack to our brothers and sisters on hunger strike and we demand the immediate satisfaction of all of their demands, without implying that any of the enemy’s concessions, on such particular demands, can silence our longing for the total destruction of your world and your emetic society:
- Immediate release of Savas Ksiros
- Immediate release of the Tsakalos’ brothers’ mother and Gerasimos’ partner.
- Abolition of the counter-terrorist laws and the hood-law.
- Abolition of C’ Type prisons.
- Abolition of the provisions relating to violent DNA taking.
- Free internet access for all the prisoners.
NO TRUCE – THE WAR CONTINUES

The war drums sounded again through the unending darkness of prison, the war is constant, it never stopped. But it is the hour of the new attack. Women and men hold tight with passion the weapons of freedom and throw themselves into another battle.
The enemy is locked up in the towers and castles he watches.
Afraid. Afraid of that which he cannot understand. That which is unknown for him. He made new laws, rules, built new dungeons. He hunted witches, he tortured, intimidated, threatened, blackmailed, imprisoned, promised. In vain.
He is afraid. Afraid of those who move camouflaged around him. The uncaught accomplices. They take and give strength to his prisoners. They declare being his mortal enemies and seek his destruction.
Today at dawn, we blew up one of the 4 entrances-exits of the courts located at the centre of Heraklion.
This attack was symbolic.
In case of murder or cause of a permanent health problem to a hunger striker, the fire that burns inside us will turn the night into day.
This is not a threat. It is a promise.
Strength to the free prisoners.

Today in Kadıkoy, we marched in solidarity with prisoners in Greek prisons, who are in hunger strike since 2nd of March and who turn to death fast. During march, we chanted slogans: “Destroy Prisons, Free the Prisoners”, “Wage Slavery System will end with anarchy”, “Greetings to the comrades who are fighting and fallen”, “Insurrection, Revolution, Anarchy”. This action was finished in a peaceful way, but if something come over our comrades, we’ll turn the streets to hell.
