“ALL OR NOTHING” – Text by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)
Inter Arma received and translated:
A few days ago, the councils responsible for the release of the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the girlfriend of the latter came in session. The repeated postponements that took place, made several comrades of the Conspiracy reach the limits between life and death. Mihalis has been in danger of suffering a heart attack twice, as his pulses dropped down to 20-25/ beats per minute (!!!), Olga has reached 40 kg, Panagiotis already has a compromised health due to prior head surgeries, Giorgos P. has serious bradycardia and pressure problems (systolic pressure 5, diastolic 3) and all comrades have lost 15-20% of their initial body weight.
Finally, the first council (by majority) decided the release of the mother, with iron restrictions (10.000 euros bail, 3 times per month required presence at a police station, prohibition of leaving the country and prohibition of leaving the island of Salamina where she lived, which had as a result, essentially, her not being allowed to visit her imprisoned sons). The second council rejected the release application of Gerasimos Tsakalos’ girlfriend, keeping her hostage of the judicial vindictiveness.
That is the game of death that continues in an even more coercive manner. They want to divide us, by offering us, on the one hand, a handicapped freedom with the release of the mother and on the other hand, a compromise with the acceptance of Evi’s detention. Our answer is simple and clear.
No truce, not a step back.
We are not going to stop our hunger strike even in front of the abyss of death. Because the absolute death is to accept the reality imposed by authority, to step back in front of its commands and hide in indifference.
We continue until the end, consistent to our decision. Until an end is given to Evi’s detention.
PS1: The mother of comrades’ Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos refused to comply with the unfair continuation of Evi’s hostage situation and did not accept the restrictions, claiming that she will pass the gate to freedom, only with Evi, who has nothing to do with our organization. Dignity proves to be stronger than legal freedom.
PS2: The last two arrests (a couple of Albanians, according to news reports) regarding our planned escape, prove only the judicial-police Gordian Knot, which tightens like a loop around the true events. Several persons, who have no connection to our organization, have been led chained to investigative offices and others are hold in custody, only because the prosecuting authorities thought that there are references to them (not even their names are written there) in some decrypted messages.
What we see unfolding before us is a spectacular television production with targeted leaks from the case file to police reporters in order to inflate and disfigure reality. It’s a TV trailer for a prison escape which unfortunately didn’t happen. A reality show with strong doses of cannibalism, as besides the confiscated weapons and explosives for which we, as CCF, claimed full responsibility, there are people who are led to prison only because of a friendly relation, a letter, a misdemeanor, of nothing, through the disfiguring magnifying glass of the counter-terrorism law.
IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF EVI
STRENGTH TO MIHALIS who has reached the limits of death (brother our every thought, our every heart beat is with you)
VICTORY TO ALL HUNGER STRIKERS AND TO THE DEMANDS OF THE STRUGGLE
