Update: Stella Antoniou has been set free and the court is transferred until November 6th.
On Wednesday October 23rd , the anarchist Stella Antoniou was arrested in Dimitsana, Tripoli, for “violating” the restrictive conditions which is not true, as Stella has no restriction on going away from Attiki.
Stella contacted some comrades and let them know that despite her denial, 5 cops from the Counter-Terrorism Unit, tried 2 times to take DNA from her. At first, closing her nose so as she opens her mouth and they can take saliva from her with a cotton swab. Then pulling her hair and violently push her and throw her on the ground.
Due to the violent behavior, the comrade has a rupture under her eye and, as a result, she bleeds. This is very dangerous especially for Stella because of the problems she generally has with her eye.
There was a gathering today in the Tripolis court, but the cops didn’t let the solidarians enter the court.
There will be more information soon.

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.

Athens: 27/6/12 – Full communiqué for the high-profile vehicle-bomb against Microsoft by Deviant Behaviours for the Spread of Revolutionary Terrorism – International Revolutionary Front (Greece)
Monday, December 31st, 2012
325 receives and transmits:
On Wednesday, June 27, at dawn, we attacked the headquarters of Microsoft with a vehicle-bomb. We drove through the main entrance and detonated the bomb van in the building, with about 150 litres of gasoline as a gift. Throughout the course of the operation the team ensured that no one would be in any danger, and, contrary to the assertions of several newspapers, they did not use firearms to immobilize the security personnel. It was an act of war against the widespread insidious silence and captivity generated by this modern world.
“Caught in prison-society…”
Growing up and wasting time and every minute of our lives in the great prison, in the city where they suffocate million people with anxiety and stress. It’s crazy and nonsense that so many people are crammed like zombies, like canned sardines in the giant cities. In factories, in their jobs, in artificial parks, in front of televisions, in the ranks of the unemployment offices, at checkouts. To have and to blackmail.
The rates here are predatory, blackmailing dilemmas, more suffocating than ever; psychiatric drugs
off-the-shelf and anti-depressants cure every patient of the modern lifestyle.
Asylums, psychiatrists and psychologists, prisons, are they not cages like the filthy flats and apartment blocks, who in their own cannibalistic way, imprison human emotion, vitality and energy?
Are not the crowded malls, noisy streets and the constant drone of horns of those who are rushing to gain a minute and get faster to work, school or important meetings?
Is prison not all around you? (more…)

Cell of Revolutionary Action for the Destruction of the State – Autonomous Cells for Immediate Revolution – Praxedis G. Guerrero claim responsibility for sending 2 explosive packages to the Greek embassy (Mexico)
Saturday, June 16th, 2012
“The struggle against the government turns into, in the final count, the physical and material struggle… The government makes the law… It is thus necessary to prepare oneself morally and materially so that, upon the explosion of the violent revolt, the victory will be the people’s…”
- Errico Malatesta,
“Anarchist Program” (Bologna, July 1920)
in Umanità Nova, August 12, 1920
This physical and moral preparation is a latent necessity that should be present in the everyday of our lives and actions. When the anarchist has at an individual level decided to take a step from talk into daily action, this action acquires in her life a strong sense, a strong importance, a potency that gives way to continue forward and to not look back to yearn for the comfort of her cowardice and ignorance. When an individual or collective project is put on the table, the anarchist feels herself already in the humble necessity of giving everything for this struggle that she has begun, since for her it is not a fashion. Anarchy is life itself, and in her the revolutionary fetishism that sometimes manages to commodify revolt is put aside, it is not important to dress in black, green, blue or yellow, or at least these folklores–personal tastes–do not strongly relate with the strength of her struggle, she does not identify in and with them. It is not important to her to fetishize weapons and guerrilla strategies since she knows well that that this is only an inevitable consequence in the struggle against power; nor even is it important to her to fetishize violence.

from liberaciontotal, transl waronsociety, communique:
We claim responsibility for the sabotage of an ATM belonging to the Pro Credit Bank of the Andes, located in the Miraflores area [of La Paz], which ended up totally unusable due to the fire.
There are new times of insubordination and disobedience in Bolivia.
New opportunities to re-propose and redefine conceptions of struggle for anarchy, we see from the lens of direct action and all its nuances, not from the abstracts and old reformist significations that are not only outdated but also contrary to the thirst for vengeance and destruction that emerges from the bowels, of the urgent reappropriation of our lives, not a life corrupted by money and consumption, but on the contrary, a life that soars far from its limits and its laws, complicit in every gesture with each of those who confront Power.
We defy every form of authority, we reject the phrases already made and repeated to the death by the erudite of the revolution who fly the discourse of the process of change and this disgusting anti-imperialist/anti-capitalist form of MAS [Movement for Socialism, the ruling government party of Bolivia].
We are not going to wait for them to tell us when is the adequate context for revolt, the “proper conditions” for struggle, factors that eternally return to waiting to finish with this reality. We decide to confront here and now, conscious of every action, every step that from now on will be a threat to Power and the society that collaborates and is part of the annihilation of the world in which we live.
Action in Solidarity.
Stella Antoniou, comrade imprisoned in Greece
Eat and Billy, comrades imprisoned in Indonesia.
Luciano Pitronello, strength throughout the trial we are with you.
Comrades of the CCF on hunger strike. For the constant discussion and strengthening of the FAI-IRF.

8 April 2012
“Last night, the night to Sunday, we left an Easter egg in front of the door of “Deutsche Telekom” at Storkower Straße, as a fiery sign of our solidarity with all comrades world wide that are fighting against State and dominion.
Just some days ago a senior shot himself in the head, directly on Syntagma-square in Athens. The reason for that is, that he couldn’t pay his debts any more and the only way he saw at all was to committed suicide. Since the beginning of the crises more than 1500 people committed suicide in Greece. Companies like Deutsche Telekom are responsible as well, that the people do not see any other solution than suicide.
Pressurized by cuts in wages, pensions and holidays, that have to be carried by all layers of population, a huge insecurity spreads all over the land. We hope that, with this action, we were able to bring the anger of the people to the heart of European capitalism. The world wide actionday “M31″ is the beginning of an international solidarity.
“Deutsche Telekom AG” is one of many multinational companies, that try to take profit out of the crises to establish themselves on the European market. One example is the Greek telecommunication company “OTE”. The Greek state reacts because of the pressure of the EU and the IWF, that are pushing the privatization of the rest of the state-owned companies and to connect this with financial helps. A short while ago the Greek state owned 50% of the company and now had to sell 40% to “Deutsche Telekom”, that further on has the right to pre-sale the state-owned parts of “OTE” that are left.
The privatization points out the first consequences for the employees of “OTE”. Recently the “Deutsche Telekom” reported, that they will mark some changes for their new employees with the red pencil, beginning with the cuts on the Boni, as well as automatically stopping the contractual increase of the wage. Further on they will offer “voluntary” retirements. These cuts should help to lower the costs for wages down to 160 Mio euro. Job cuts are the necessarily results. Already in October wage cuts up to 11% were dealt with the unions.
But there is resistance inside the OTE-staff. 2011 some independent workers called out for a general strike on the 7th/8th of May.
Further on the “Deutsche Telekom AG” got a monopole position on the international market for telecommunication. Especially in relation to gapless surveillance the Telekom is a pioneer. In some federal states the daughter company T-Systems got delegated to build up the digital communication of police and fire fighter forces. Just some examples that encouraged us to visit this concern.
Viva la Anarchia!
Freedom for Stella Antoniou and all the other imprisoned comrades!

The night of April 5 in the Nou Barris area, paintings were made on public institutions at around 11:50 PM; later, around 3:30 AM a private school was sabotaged with windows broken and paint bombs and also with various paintings on the outside walls.
The paintings read:
- For a self-managed, voluntary and anti-authoritarian school. Death to the bosses’ world.
- Against the domestication of the individual, resistance and direct action.
- Youth, if you do not fight, no one will fight for you.
As anarchists of nihilist tendency, we vindicate revolutionary action as a tool for our political-emancipatory project, we propose subversive urban guerrilla war as a form of struggle in the streets spaces, likewise for gain territory in our lives, in the face of the control of the authoritarian State.
We are revolutionary anarchists who reject and disregard the ranks of classic anarchism, likewise we reject the ancient strategy (end in itself) of accumulation of forces. We break with the old schemas and -isms, and we function by means of our inquietude and our personal I (which we temper with collective labor in order to accomplish according to vital goals, this being a false problem and not a contradiction at all).
As youth uprooted with expectations of wanting to free ourselves, we not only see our enemy in capitalism and the State, we also see it in the humanizing values of society, in its defense of the indefensible, therefore, we also seek to dis-articulate it. We are the uncontrollables, those who give free reign to socio-political destruction, those who see in the precarious and wild youth, in the immigrant youth and and youth of lower social class, the destabilizing explosion adequate for dismantling the bosses’ world and to entomb the State, we see adequate capacity for creating a tension of civil-revolutionary war by means of the tactic of the anarchist urban guerrilla and the conflict between the oppressive State and the revolutionary youth. We are working for the articulation of a constant influence in our spaces of the streets, that can create the situation of socio-political war against civilization, of razing to the ground capital’s schemas without any consideration.
We want to forge a generation of wild youth, disposed to destroy the city and the capitalist economy. From the Barcelona suburbs, we make a call to the rest of the youth for you to assume the nihilist branch of anarchism, to investigate your perceptions and to unite, under a black anti-authoritarian fist, let’s subvert the old order. Let’s go beyond.
Although at the time the actions did not have a concrete spirit of solidarity from the start and only sought to spread revolutionary action and revolt, we want to change the initial plan and to dedicate all of these actions (except the solidarity of April 6 with Stella Antoniou) to Gerasimos Tsakalos, Panagiotis Argyrou, Christos Tsakalos, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Alexandros Mitroussias, and Kostas Sakkas who at this time have started a hunger strike. Comrades, we send you a raised fist and a fervent revolutionary greeting.
Death to social peace!
For the return of terror to its gears!

Athens: Letter from CCF imprisoned member Christos Tsakalos, who has been on hunger strike from April 8th (Greece)
Wednesday, April 11th, 2012
‘When one does not die for the other, then we are already dead’
I am not a humanist and therefore will not talk like a humanist. I place myself on the side of the anarchists of praxis. In the battle for a free life without leaders and minions, often a price to pay is the prison. This price has been imposed on me a year ago, since I am imprisoned–CAPTIVE by the State. Captive but not defeated; because for me, as an anarchist urban guerrilla, prison is a temporary stop but never the terminal. During this whole year, I did not allow prison to tame or to ‘correct’ me, or to subdue my body and my memory through the dead repetition of the time-jailer.
