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!”

January 13th, 2011

“Barclay Capital is the market maker for ITT Corporation on the New York Stock Exchange – see here.

This week a Barclays cashpoint in Brighton was sabotaged in solidarity with the victims of ITT Corporation. ITT is EDO MBM’s parent company. ITT and EDO supply components to Israel for the F16. In the last fortnight Israel has escalated F16 attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Barclays provide market maker services to ITT, without which they could not function on the NYSE. It is also the largest global investor in the arms trade. Target Barclays until they cease providing financial services to ITT.”

Night of Sabotage in Bristol (UK)

January 11th, 2011

10 January 2010

“We are warming up… early on January 10th, as anarchists with revolutionary intent we continued in the trajectory that our horror and disgust at the society we find ourselves engulfed by demands.

as a result – bailiff and debt collecting firm Revenue on Bonnville Road, windows all down one side of the building smashed (despite regular security patrol close by).

– O2 repeater tower secluded behind a nearby industrial estate, lock cut from the gate with bolt-croppers then a tyre filled with rags wedged through the biggest bunch of cables(rags also tied around the cables) and doused with paraffin and ignited with a birthday candle wick to torch the whole thing.

– Brislington police station, paintstripper used to damage the bodywork of three squadcars and one mobile c.c.t.v unit and windows put out (inside their fenced vehicle compound).

– HSBC bank on the main Bath Road, front windows shot out.

as the country lurches further into the certainty of even more clearcut class attacks on the poor by the rich, we would predict a certain rise in the use of a variety of tools and tactics by the exploited and excluded in return in this social war that some still desperately try to bury their heads from as it rages before their eyes. for us, while we respect a diversity of tactics based on participants ability and on results not dogma, a meaningful struggle against the state, capitalism and the prison-based society it produces and represents must be defined by complete and permenant conflict with the ruling order rather than demands or dialogue. now is not the time and never has been for us to waste time and breath caught up in the politics of representatives or leftists/activists wishing us to wittle away our time in petty politics rather than seeking to expand our relationships of utter revolt with each other. we seek only to find those who wish to conspire with us for a fight that will take us beyond everything we know of this world, to realise a libertarian autonomous society through collective destruction of the present one.

these actions of sabotage are simple and achieve these aims directly. in many areas there are targets, it is simply impossible for them to be all defended at once by our enemies so we take our time and strike at will. the allseeing eye still has blindspots it would seem. when struggling against the network of technological repression, police – communications infrastructure – bailiffs – banks all pose very real and attackable faces to the not so invisible machine.

the fight continues.”

Message From Jock Palfreeman, anti-fascist prisoner (Bulgaria)

January 11th, 2011

Jock Palfreeman, a 23 year old Australian with British connections, who spent some time in Bristol, UK, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison in Bulgaria on 2/12/09. He had been on remand at Sofia central prison for 2 years. In Sofia in late December 2007 he intervened when he saw a gang of 15+ Bulgarian football hooligans, with undoubted neo-nazi tendencies, attack 2 Roma (gypsy) people. The gang then attacked Jock with lumps of concrete, and in self-defence he killed one and injured another. The dead man came from a well-known Bulgarian family with political connections. 2 years later after a long eventful trial with many dubious practices and a clear political flavour, Jock was found guilty.

For 3 years my statement of self defence has not changed. And it doesn’t change now. The 3 years have been difficult, but the fact that the judges, prosecutors, private plaintiffs and myself know that I’m innocent brings some comfort.

The false accusers are scared of my case being publicized. Within Bulgaria they have done a very good job of censoring the facts of my case from the Bulgarian language public. In the past year nothing has been mentioned about my case in Bulgarian print nor in TV. In contrast to other languages. Read the rest of this entry »

Communique from Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Informal Anarchist Federation – International Network

January 9th, 2011

CONSPIRACY CELLS OF FIRE – COMMANDO HORST FANTAZZINI – INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF ACTION AND SOLIDARITY – INFORMAL ANARCHIST FEDERATION

“Solidarity is a constant attack against the system and society, an act where the words fabrication, innocent, guilty, do not fit. Because as revolutionaries it is our duty to always be guilty for this system, always dangerous and always proud of our choices. We are not persecuted for our ideas, but because it seemed poor to us to not turn them into actions.” (Gerasimos Tsakalos member of the prisoners cell of C.C.F.).

Real solidarity between revolutionary consciences and groups of comrades is what the dominators fear most, it is the idea of a prospect that makes the ground tremble under the feet of the scum that call us terrorists. Read the rest of this entry »

Letter from Gerasimos Tsakalos, Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

January 8th, 2011

Anarchist Gerasimos Tsakalos was arrested with comrade Panagiotis Argirou, during an operation of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in Athens.

WE HAVE RAGE

On the morning of November 1st we were moving around in the area of Pagkrati, in order to act in the framework of the campaign for international solidarity the organization had decided together with comrade and brother Panagiotis Argirou. Because, however, of the police-like curiosity of an employee of a courier company, certain personal errors and our being surrounded by the pigs of the DIAS group (motorbike cops) and other police forces that isolated the area, there was little choice and we were led to the building of GADA (police headquarters building) to the floor of the anti-terrorist police.
