Update on the Trial of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Athens (Greece)

January 26th, 2011

24 & 25 January 2010

On Monday, January 24, the second day of the trial of the accused in the case of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, the court rejected both claims of the accused: to have the minutes of the proceedings recorded (“Due to high costs” said the tribunal bozos!) and for the identity papers of those entering the courtroom not to be withheld. … The defendants left the court, revoked their defence lawyers and stated that they will abstain from prison food and go on hunger strike if the court appointed lawyers (which it did).

Critique of the attitudes of the journalists. The statement of the six accused prisoners, agreed by the three comrades* on bail, was read by George Karagiannidis who said: “We are adamant about the retaining of our comrades’ particulars. “

G. Karagiannidis spoke of the repressive nature of the measure said the defendants want to take their voices beyond the walls of the prison.

The statement made reference to the journalists, who “misleadingly report directly from the counter-terrorist cops They have reported on our personal lives and those of our families, so they too are exposed.”

When the accused left the prison/court dozens of comrades shouted slogans and many of them raised their fists shouting “Tough, tough, be proud and strong.”

* The three comrades Vogiatzakis, Rallis and Giospas who are free on bail claimed that they have nothing to fear, but said that under these circumstances they cannot attend and do not want to go to trial with lawyers whom they do not know.

25 January 2011 – The trial of those accused of involvement in the organization “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire” was stopped this morning and will resume on Thursday. The court proceeded to appoint new defence lawyers, but of the 18 lawyers appointed, only four came forward and stated that they refuse to accept the appointment. As said by the lawyers who refused to take their defence, the case is too serious and the defendants themselves do not wish to be represented. Finally, the court was suspended until Thursday with the appointment of two new lawyers per defendant.

FROM ACTFORFREEDOMNOW!

Freedom to H.Hadjimihelakis, P. Argirou, G.Tsakalos who have taken the political responsibility for the “Conspiracy Cells of Fire” and P.Massouras, K.Karakatsani, A.Mitrousias, G.Karagiannidis who are imprisoned for the same case.

Solidarity to all imprisoned anarchists and revolutionaries.

THE PASSION FOR FREEDOM IS STRONGER THAN THE PRISON

We don’t yet know the reason for this. But it is clear, that for prisoners each transfer means great stress: new situation, new regime, new harassment. Marco needs our solidarity!

Santiago Central Women's Penitentiary – Andrea Urzúa Cid in solidarity with the CCF on trial in Greece (Chile)

January 23rd, 2011

From hundreds of kilometres away

“to be at war is not a different way of managing society. It is, irreducibly and irreconcilably, ideas about happiness and its worlds. Power knows this, and so do we … “
Invisible Committee


In a couple of hours the trial of the Greek comrades will begin, some of them with enthralling courage have claimed militance in the anarcho-revolutionary group Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. Their commitment as militants of freedom with actions of radicalization for a better life, without structures, without stereotypes or any kind of power, the only way for anti-social construction. For all of us a fine example of permanent action for the revolutionary uprising. It is here and now that words and deeds become one. Far from theorising concepts of Revolution, it is concrete actions that show the fury of those of us who yearn to destroy the current state of affairs. Today more than ever we see ourselves in sincere need to create spaces, material and otherwise and self-organization to form a future of conscious individuality, to sow the anti-authoritarian ideas in every corner of the world, with the goal of a better life, away from domination and any form of exploitation.

The current society, founded as a forced association of individuals, will never make possible our dreams of autonomy and freedom. The political-social and economic reality of recent years shows that the modernist criminal system can no longer sustain itself, the spread of the uncontrollable revolutionary idea is putting in check “control and social peace.” That ‘s why the State and power are using as a response their Machiavellian tool- prison. In these moments of physical confinement, my spirit leads me to shout louder than ever:

May solidarity destroy all walls!!

Tear down the prison walls! Subvert any established and imposed moral, and social value!

Greek comrades: from hundreds of miles away I send a strong and fraternal embrace full of inherited love and rage.

Hi, comrades!!

Nottingham Probation Services Attacked (UK)

January 23rd, 2011

19 January 2010

“In the earlier hours of Wednesday morning the Nottingham Probation Services Office on Derby Road was attacked. Four of it’s vehicles had their paint stripped, tyres slashed and locks glued shut. All the doors to the building were also glued.

This was just a gesture, a middle finger flicked up at the prison system. To that system we say Fuck your attempts to control our lives, fuck you for imprisoning our comrades, and fuck your surveillance because we will not be stopped from having these moments. These moments where the industrial prison complex, the culture of domination and capitalism can not stop us from responding with anger and disgust at the world that has been created.

This action is done in solidarity with all prisoners. We do not differentiate between those who have been imprisoned for their political beliefs and those who are imprisoned because they were not born into a position of wealth and power. This action was for those who have spent their lives having their actions criminalized by the elite, and it is for those anarchist prisoners around the world who aim to destroy the elite.”

International Call to Action for Solidarity Demonstrations at German Embassies (Global)

January 19th, 2011

Liebig 14 is one of Berlin longest running autonomous housing projects, serving as a space for collective living as well as community and political organising for over 20 years. After a 4 year legal process the owners of the building have finally been given legal permission to evict the house on the 2nd of February 2011. Squatted shortly after the fall of the wall in what was a derelict area of east Berlin, Liebig 14’s attempted eviction is just one symptom of a rampaging processes of gentrification which is rapidly forcing poorer residents out of the city centre and tearing apart the city’s radical infrastructure. Liebig 14 is proud to be a part of a long history of autonomous spaces in Berlin and around the world. In working against capitalism, social hierarchy and discrimination, autonomous spaces take small but concrete steps towards wider political emancipation and self-determined living. The eviction of Liebig 14 will be a loss not only to Berlin’s alternative project infrastructure but also a wider attack on projects everywhere attempting to build alternative, more socially just, and more sustainable modes of social organization. Solidarity with free spaces under threat in Berlin, Amsterdam, London and worldwide is key if we are to sustain these vital resources.

Stop gentrification from tearing apart our cities!

Support autonomous spaces!

Save Liebig 14!

Solidarity Action with Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in İstanbul (Turkey)

January 19th, 2011

“İstanbul, Turkey (16.01.2011) – In the night of 16th of January 2011 at 7 p.m. against the biggest one of the shopping centers in Istanbul, Cevahir AVM, there was an attack with fireworks. The 4 of the exploded 7 fireworks hit the entrance and the windows of shopping center. While fireworks begin to explode, there had been no injury except a little bit panic.

While the banks, shopping centers, fastfoods [outlets] and other part of the consuming culture reduce imagination and free-time to shit and debt, while our planet becomes unliveable because of the consumption and commodification, we see a little art-sabotage not inappropriate.

The actions that we took like this is for solidarity with our comrades who are now in hostages in Greek dungeons and with Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

Insurrectionary greetings.”

Open letter by Philip and Pepe Mayer about the sycophancies and the puplications by some parrots of the state about our sister (Greece)

January 18th, 2011

Update: Fei Meyer was released on provisional liberty following disagreements between the investigating judge and the prosecution and for this reason the board decided after giving her provisional liberty that 15 days later she deserved the prison again. The four other accused comrades were taken to Koridallos prison.

In the early morning of October 13, a van belonging to the Public Power Corporation (DEI) was torched in downtown Thessaloniki using an incendiary device made out of camping gas canisters, gasoline, and a fuse. The vehicle was completely incinerated, but 19-year-old comrade Yiannis Skouloudis was caught red-handed. In addition, four comrades (Babis Tsilianidis, Dimitris Dimtsiadis, Sokratis Tzifkas, Dimitris Fessas) were arrested and accused for the same case and now the anti-terrorist cops have arrested the comrade Fei Mayer.

She is accused for participation in a terrorist group (the name of the group has not yet been decided by the cops). Lawyers or information about what she is accused of is considered a luxury for people arrested in Greece, so she doesn’t have any of these. The mass media come to fill the gap of the not-existing evidence, so they have started to transmit surreal scenarios about their parents being members of RAF and other armed groups in Germany. They also “informed” us that her father was killed during a guerrilla action in Germany! Of course, her father is still alive, maybe he is a bit more insecure after he was informed about his death.

The crime of Fei is solidarity and dignity.

The big game that is being played on the back of our sister and our family. With the trial of the defendants for participation in the organization “Conspiracy Cells of Fire” approaching and the explosion in the Administrative Court building remaining unanswered on the side of arrests, it was expected from the state to try to catch a “big fish” and if it cannot, it manufactures it, so that it recovers its lost prestige and demonstrates its strength.

Some information about the start of the trial of the comrades members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and those accused in the same case in Korydallos prison/court today, 17 January (Greece)

January 18th, 2011

Early in the morning the atmosphere in Korydallos was asphyxiating .. police everywhere and very few comrades. Around 11 am people gathered on the pavement outside the prison/court to get in. They had to give their ID card and full personal information. The courtroom was full of plainclothes cops. A few people made it to get in. Then the court was stopped and it was stated that nobody would be allowed in without ID and the card would be kept for the duration of the trial. That is illegal since the police only have the right to keep your identity card if you are a witness, or expert witness (according to the procedure). Since, however, it is assumed that the case is not yet closed, they are trying to find more to culprits. Fortunately, the accused comrades refused to speak and left the courtroom..

Solidarity with Conspiracy Cells of Fire (Poland)

January 18th, 2011

In connection with an appeal that was calling to solidarity actions, launched by the Greek group of activists from Conspiracy Cells of Fire, on January 17 of current year, in the province Śląsk (Poland) activists took a symbolic supportive action as an answer to this appeal.

“On the entrance of the “KB bank” a banner was hanged: ‘Solidarity with Greece’, which bears the distinctive logo of the Greek group. Support was also expressed in English by paint, that was also thrown at the doors.

We hope that this small gesture of solidarity, adds a bit of support, because along with the date January 17 begins the process for the activists, according to penal system that sets it as activism of terror.
With this event, we hope that this is not the end of solidarity actions, both in Poland and abroad.

Solidarity is our weapon!”
