Letter of Haris Hadjimihelakis, anarchist prisoner (Greece)

November 26th, 2010

Haris Hadjimihelakis was arrested after a police raid against an accused ‘safe-house’ of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, in Halandri, Athens. In this letter Haris affirms his claim of responsibility for participation in the revolutionary organisation Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. Comrades Panayiotis Masouras and Konstantina Karakatsani are also accused of membership of the group and remain in prison. Revolutionary solidarity with all imprisoned fighters.

I take the political responsibility for my participation in the revolutionary organization Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

I stand proud of my choice to remain intransigent on the side of urban guerrilla warfare until the moment the state mechanism on 23/09/2009 managed to tightly tie my hands and throw my body into a dungeon. What, however, they will never be able to imprison is my free revolutionary consciousness. What they will not be able to prevent is the continuation of production of my radical insurrectional speech, even in the condition of confinement. Read the rest of this entry »

November 25th, 2010

indymedia athens/actforfreedomnow!

a statement by one of the comrades:

From the first instance it became clear that the judge and attorney wanted a fast trial without any ideological characteristics and with the only guide being the criminal record of the accused. In short, they wanted to prove that Alfredo Bonanno was the leader, the moral perpetrator of the robbery and that Christos was the pupil, the one who executed the plan. Read the rest of this entry »

Tory offices in Nottingham smashed (UK)

November 18th, 2010

“The Tory offices in Nottingham were last night visited by individuals who hate Tory scum. We smashed some windows, painted some messages including “Fight the cuts” and “Tory Scum”.

We did this because we are sick of politicians attacking common people on behalf of the rich. Politicians who have no idea what the lives of common people consist of, and should have no control over their our lives.

We did this because we believe in acting autonomously with the rage in our hearts. And we did this in solidarity with those arrested for being at Millbank, and all people who are getting fucked over by the cuts and capitalism on a daily basis.”

November 12th, 2010

The anarchist Giannis Dimitrakis was arrested heavily wounded after a robbery at a branch of the National Bank in the center of Athens, on January 16th, 2006.

Sabotage at Water Pumping Station, Berkshire (UK)

November 5th, 2010

Summer 2010

“Water Pumping Station at Axford in Berkshire Sabotaged to protect River Kennet SSSI (Site of Specific Scientific Interest).

The Thames water pumping station at Axford, nr Newbury, in Berkshire is causing severe damage to the ecology of the River Kennet, designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The River is based on chalkland so any variations in the aquifer can cause damage to the habitats of species such as Water Crowfoot, water voles, river lampray, and brown trout. The pumping station at Axford currently abstracts 9.4 million litres of water a day, with a yearly licence for 4,049,000 cubic metres. 85% of this is pumped out of the catchment area for domestic and industrial use in Swindon, so is lost from the river system. Both Natural England and the World Wildlife Fund have condemed current abstraction levels from the Kennet as the cause of habitat destruction. The water licence is up for review in 2011, but as demand is increasing the chances for the Kennet are slim.

Earlier this summer fences to the compound at Axford were cut. To avoid the door and window alarms on the main pump facility air vents were removed and access was gained through the walls. The pumps were stopped and control room trashed. The back up generator was decomissioned and control pannels smashed. Locks on fluridation units were glued. This action was taken in defence of the River Kennet and the species that live there. Defend your local river system.”
