CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE-COMMANDO HORST FANTAZZINI claim responsibility for the bomb attack against the Administrative Court in Athens on December 30 /2010 (Greece)
I. “The days are coming when they try…”
“Whoever passed by the front of a courthouse or a prison and his look didn’t darken at the thought that he could be there as the culprit, then he did not live his time with integrity and dignity”
Our comrades and the honest minority of dignified revolutionary individuals, political and civil, are not just a piece of our struggle, are not only an aspect of our action, but their choices, attitudes and dignity are the struggle itself as a whole, they are the substance.
Justice is a spider web, catching small prey and swallowing them, while allowing the big reptiles to penetrate and dominate. Whoever disagrees can visit the prisons to see all these drug addicts and poor devils that fill them up and look around in there to find any businessman or politician who is responsible for the biggest robberies and the most brutal degradation of our lives. So, in sight of the political court marshal that’s prepared for January 17th for our Revolutionary Organization CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE we will be sharp and relentless in our options and actions.
If some believe that our Brothers are easy prey and ‘Cook’ the menu of penalties they wish them to contribute to pay dearly for the bill, we would like to inform them that they are just fooling themselves and that from here on their personal safety is in immediate danger. So it would good that in the upcoming trial the judges wear black balaclavas and don’t mention their names ever and anywhere. It is “unfortunate” that the system leaves its simple puppets to be targeted so easily and also thinks that it will escape so easily. It’s a “shame” that these “people” need 24 hour police protection and are afraid to open a letter or a folder. It is a “shame” to believe that they can sleep with a clear conscience when their decisions are the carbon copy of the files of the Anti-Terrorist police, in order to judge the Conspiracy. To judge an idea, a proposal, a plan that makes something more beautiful against this world.
Modern inquisitors-judges, we publicly pledge that for every year of prison that our brothers’ ears hear, we will put a kilo of explosives in the yards of your houses, in your cars, in your offices, while we do not exclude personal face to face meetings with you, using the element of a surprise approach. We think that it’s a small world and sooner or later we will meet, in the future or sooner. Besides, as very rightly was announced by the Union of Judges and prosecutors, in a style of one thousand Cardinals, “the moment of crisis is sure to come to all of us at some point .. “.
Only now it’s time for the “judges” to be judged, for all those ugly acts they have committed. Since you are not ashamed to be the spearhead of the system against the insurgencies that are coming, we will make sure you feel our resentment and dislike for your dirty work. If some by judging ideas and prosecuting revolutionaries consider that they are just doing their job, then we will transfer “our work” to their homes.
Of course, the war that we have with the corrupt judicial mafia is not limited to the field of the hearing of our case. We would be narrow-minded and hypocritical if we did not mention the crimes of justice as a whole.
We understand the ordeal faced in the courts by thousands of people and their families. See, “justice” has a special preference in uniforms, authority and money, and not the truth. Not all “criminals” are “guilty”, or judges “innocent”. Even if there is a small minority of judges that do not take bribes, that do not bow to their political bosses, do not accept the records of the police as pre-made decisions, they should know that without freedom there’s no justice. Even they themselves only through the position they hold, serve an oppressive and illiberal system and that’s why they are among the enemies of freedom. How many times the “virtuous observers of the law” try and sentence without even any obvious evidence. An example is the recent trial named by the Media “crime syndicate”. Already months before tv-judges with the “democratic” procedure of publishing telephone tappings have decided the verdict. “GUILTY” …
At the same time one of the defendants has clearly taken responsibility for the kidnapping of the shipping magnate relieving most of them, while some were already in prison when the kidnapping happened. But the outcome of the trial is a public secret that is already rigged and cooked in the headquarters of the Police. But if anyone wants to look for a real “crime syndicate” and its “safehouses” they should look in parliament, on Alexandras Avenue at GADA (Athens police headquarters), in the mansions and yachts of the rich. But these are not touched by “justice”.
We also do not forget how resentful judges are. It is not accidental that the vindictive sentencing of the young person Chrisovalantis Pouziaritis with the predatory sentence of 9 years and 3 months for his involvement in last year’s clashes of December 6th in Thessaloniki. A conviction based solely on the vague testimonies of the cops who arrested him.
But even when “doing” their work, under pressure from a diffuse anger, as in the case of the cop Korkoneas (the cop that killed Alexandros Grigoropoulos on Dec. 6th 2008), we know again, that they are hypocrites. They sacrifice an insignificant pawn in order to cover their leadership. Because even the most ‘fair’ punishments smell terribly bad when imposed by a victorious and inhuman authority. Besides, as we said before, after our strikes on Koridallos prison and the courthouse in Thessaloniki, we are opposed to the imprisonment of any human being. The deprivation of liberty, is simply torture. We are not torturers, like the Democrats. The solution to conflicts with such scumbags like Korkoneas, comes from taking law into one’s own hand. Those who felt the most loss of their comrade A. Grigoropoulos should decide the “fate” of his murderer.
We believe that the same path, taking the law into one’s own hands, should be followed for all rapists, pedophiles, pimps, fascists and snitches.
“As revolutionaries we do not recognize any investigating authority. So we were bound to refuse to apologize to cops and interrogators, since our revolutionary position is that only before the public and our comrades do we feel a duty to promote.” (P. Argirou – G. Tsakalos members of the prisoners cell of C.C.F.)
Finishing with the issue of the judicial mafia, we believe that every decent imprisoned Human being, for whatever reason he is “inside” must not do the “Favour” to the judges and recognize them as eligible to judge him. Because this is what they want with their “legalization”, their recognition as a superior clique of people whom the rest have to be fully accountable to. But honourable judges you should know that the expensive clothes that you got this morning from the dry-cleaners have absorbed the blood of thousands of people you tortured and locked in prison without a second thought. And this blood will drown you… This is why we call the criminal and political friends and comrades who choose to walk with dignity as a guide to refuse to recognise their inquisitors in any way. There is not only one way, but many. From silence against interrogators and judges, from the refusal to appear in court, by converting the trial into a public forum for the dissemination of revolutionary values, to the attack in the courtroom against the “honorable judges” by spitting, swearing, shouting and throwing objects, glasses, coffee etc.
To get them behind a protective window, for them to move around with bulletproof vests accompanied by the masked cops of the anti-terrorist brigade.
Our first appointment is therefore on January 17th. We will be there NEXT to our brothers, the members of the prisoners cell of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and to those who had the dignity in this adventure to hold their heads up high. We’ll be there with our soul, our hearts and our minds. Because otherwise, we are looking for intense passages to take back our comrades and to be together again tomorrow in the struggle, the NEW URBAN GUERILLA WARFARE.
Because our day will come…
II. “But, what they will never be able to imprison is my free revolutionary conscience. What they will never be able to prevent is the continuous production of my radical insurrectionist speech, even under the conditions of incarceration” (Harris Hadjimihelakis member of the prisoners cell of the C.C.F.)
A while ago, a vast mobilization took place within prisons with the participation of many prisoners in the abstention of prison food. The fact passed as “insignificant news” in the media, some domestic disputes between prisoners did not let things expand and many were met with disappointment, while the leadership of the ministry, with a smart strategic move, gave partial amnesty to disciplinary actions so that “the incident be considered final …”
We, as the Revolutionary Organization Conspiracy of Cells of Fire will always support the struggle of prisoners and their mobilizations. We understand the difficult circumstances under which thousands of people are tortured every day. We will not comment on the demands of the prisoners considering them in advance self-evident and obvious, because they are in the direction of a struggle that is the most important for humans, the struggle for freedom and dignity. But we do not forget that “any improvement of the conditions, will not fundamentally change everyday life, because the deprivation of freedom alone is a constant punishment “ (V. Stefanakos prisoner).
Even these scumbags, the directors of prisons, complain that the vans come back from the courts loaded with 300 to 400 years of prison time. So this is the mirror of our civilized society, a vast warehouse of souls in pigsty conditions. Until when will we tolerate people being released from prison in coffins (the Greek prisons have the highest rates of suicide). Until when will we tolerate a handful of sub-humans to judge us with laws written by the hand of our executioners and our exploiters.
But in relation to the mobilizations in the prisons it’s better that we say two words in the language of the prisoners without fancy phrases and policies. We know that everyone inside thinks that they have been wronged by society. But instead of doing an illegalist catwalk and looking to find a hit of smack to take, snitching on the person next door, how to divide the community of the wing or the cell, they take a look around and see that prison depends on him. He fixes the plumbing, electrics and all general building work. He cleans, cooks, to keep the prison open. Its him with his submissive attitude that binds the others around him, turning himself into a cop of the system. We know very well that the greatest threat to freedom is not its violent deprivation through captivity, because the prisoner can fight to win it back, but the real threat is the loss of the passion and appreciation you have for it.
In prison what kills even more than smack is habit. The habit of wearing invisible handcuffs on your mind, the habit of the exercise yard, the surprise checks and transfers, the visits behind plexiglass, the permanently on television…
Koridallos for example, the largest prison in the country has about 2500 prisoners maybe more, while the guards on duty never exceed 50, even in an open prison. If all of these inmates refused to cooperate with the 50 individuals, refuse to play the game with the carrot and the whip, then they could tear down the prisons with their nails overnight. A refusal therefore of cooperation and sabotage their procedures. We believe that there is already a struggle that has started long ago without us. From the bomb on the director of the prisons of Corfu to the bomb to the Director of Alikarnassos prison and from the shooting of the prison employee in Koridallos to the beating of the director of Avlona prisons, there is anger, there is anger, there is a memory…
Prison is the stone that while the builder of legitimacy throws away as useless, can become the cornerstone for building a new world. The decent criminals and political prisoners can combine their experience and transform prison into a workshop of producing knowledge and conscience, to make the experience of lack of freedom a stubborn struggle, make themselves the spark in the powder kegs of the prisons. We already know that the struggle against prisons is a struggle for life that knows no frontiers and nations. The universal language of violence and deprivation of liberty has written its own history on the bodies of prisoners. Recently, 83 prisoners died in the prisons in Chile. In retaliation, the anarchist group “Commandos of vengeance for December 8” attacked the technology and computer department of the cops for the dead in San Miguel prison, sending a clear message that in this struggle no one is alone. < “Cages do not get better, they get destroyed. For the end of this, and every other society.” (Monica Caballero, anarchist prisoner in Chile).
III. From Theory to Practice.
Wanting to coordinate theory with practice, and to send our Respect, Faith and Friendship to our brothers P.Argirou, G.Tsakalos and H.Hadjimihelakis of the prisoners cell of C.C.F., to anarchist revolutionary P.Massouras, anarchist K.Karakatsani, the anti-authoritarian-arsonist G. Skouloudis and the 4 wanted comrades who are prosecuted for the same case, the honest and authentic anarchist fighter G.Dimitrakis, the dignified P.Giannou and to the brilliant criminal minority who do not bow their heads and walk with dignity as their guide, we chose and decided to strike the Administrative Courthouse of the judicial mafia. We mapped out the area, we calculated the distance to the General Clinic so that not the slightest thing happen, watched the movements and shifts of the special guard post between the Administrative court and the Appellate court, timed the blackout that prevails at 7:15 in the morning when the streetlights go out, the frequency of the route of the pigs of the D.I.A.S. group (motorbike cops) around the target, we expropriated the vehicles we needed and we went on the attack.
We formed a fully operational team more than ready to attack any involvement [of the security services]. Two support vehicles supervised the court both before the planting of the motorbike with the bomb, and at the final stage of its parking, where one of the two vehicles received the comrade who drove the motorbike. The positioning of the support team was such that they were able to immediately subdue the guard in the rare case that he realized something, but also to surprise any variable police force (e.g. ID control of the rider by the D.I.A.S. motorbike cops or by an accidentally passing patrol car). Both our position and our weapon superiority would be enough to disengage us and we could get away unscathed.
As we have said before, when talking about operational descriptions of some of our strikes, we do so to demystify the technical sancrosanctity of power.
We believe that anything is possible provided that there is will and organization. We are the last who would demote a revolutionary project to a military logic of prevalence of the “fittest”. The issue for us is not who will be the most disciplined soldiers, the most talented officers, this draws the revolution to a spectacular background, abstracting it away from daily life.
What we simply say to the enemies of freedom is that whatever you do, we will continue to strike you, to disturb your interests, bother your peace, to affect your certainty and your safety.
What are we selling? Nothing.
What do we want? Everything.
