Hunger Strike: Vehicles owned by ISS and Vodafone companies torched by FAI-IRF / Fire and Fury (Greece)

Inter Arma received and translated:

“The State terrorizes,
It slings mud, it fools, it besots, it pretends
Its omnipotence is now a myth
Our rage, it makes us stronger, its alienation doesn’t touch us
The store windows of authority are smashed by us with stones
The chains of obedience are melted by us with the rebellious flame that burns inside every oppressed one
Our eyes are open
Our ears capture every sound
Our thinking is crystal
Our fury is unthinkable
Our choice is one: Violent, uncontrollable and constant struggle against state and authority
We are angry, we are rebellious,

WE ARE YOUR WORST NIGHTMARES”

Lambros Foundas

After the disclosure of the escape plan of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire from Korydallos prison, for which its members have claimed full responsibility, the counter-terrorism agency, exposed by the complete plan prepared by the imprisoned comrades, unleashed, with the full cooperation of the known snitches of the mass media of deception, a wild pogrom of arrests of their relatives and friends which resulted in the detention of the mother of Gerasimos and Christos Tsakalos and of the girlfriend of the first one, on charges of participation in a terrorist organization. The targeting of relatives and friends of imprisoned anarchists by the slimy judges and the motherfuckers of the counter-terrorism agency is not something new, as we have seen it repeatedly in the past, in cases such as the wife of Dimitris Koufodinas who was imprisoned in the underground isolation cells of Korydallos prison for participation in N17 [November 17, armed group] and the wife of Kostas Gournas, member of Revolutionary Struggle, who was put on trial for the case.

In this [present] case, the ridiculous accusations attributed to relatives of the Conspiracy, signed by the vile Nikopoulos and Asprogerakas (at the same time the latter one signed the prison releases of the members of the [neo-nazi party] Golden Dawn), display the vengeful fury of the repressive authorities against the unyielding and proud attitude of the imprisoned comrades, putting before them the emotional blackmail of the imprisonment of their loved ones. The comrades and anarchist Angeliki Spyropoulou in response to the vindictive detention of their relatives, are since March 2 on hunger strike until death demanding their immediate release. On the same day Maziotis, Koufodinas and Gournas and anarchist prisoners participating in NFP [Network of Fighting Prisoners] started a hunger strike against the counter-terrorism legislation, Type C prisons and demand the immediate release of Savvas Xiros [injured-disabled imprisoned member of N17]. Apart from the different starting points and theoretical perceptions we may have, we believe that the demands for which the anarchists hunger strikers struggle, concern everyone, so we support their struggle.

Through our action we want to send our strength and incendiary solidarity to the imprisoned brothers of the Conspiracy and to Aggeliki Spyropoulou. Brothers and sisters stay strong, our time will come. On March 5 we torched a vehicle in Messologiou street in Dafni owned by ISS company, which among others provides security services and has also undertaken the cleaning of the sterile spaces of mechanized movement of the Subway, and on March 14 we delivered a truck owned by VODAFONE company in Theocritus Street, in Nea Smyrni to the fire.

“Society is the mirror of the absurd part where I am locked up: a prison made by insuperable walls and invisible cells”
Adriano Antonacci

Social control is one of the main consolidation strategies of domination. Its practical applications respond to the historical circumstances that it has to face and they ensure their formal justification for “security reasons”. The feeling of security is referred to as a social good, the common good, ceases to exist as a fundamental achievement of the social structure when it is challenged, when it cracks and the stake of social peace becomes fragile. The destabilization of the social fabric is expressed in the practical challenge, declared by the aggressive actions and the internal hostilities of the anarchist war which develop their own potential, expressing a direct threat to all kinds of authority. Their present and their diffusion are State policy priorities which are articulated basically on two main axes: ‘risk prevention efforts’ and an indefinite extension of the concept of the ‘suspect’.

These two elements are the components of the modern repressive paradigm expressed significantly through the consolidation of a panopticon-like control system. Movements, behaviors, relationships, communication become an observation field from which the mechanisms of authority try to predict by mining information. The security cameras in every corner of the metropolis, targeted searches and area patrols by private security companies and the monitoring of telephone communications are indicative practices of a control policy displayed with the refined image of modernization. The interference in our private moments that aims at extracting and processing information in order to form a more complete profile about an individual, happens through technological progress and its practical applications which especially in recent years seems to grow and target towards that direction specifically. The repressive paradigm is the safety of authority. That’s all it ever was and that’s what it will continue to be.

“Today that the world is rotting and dishonesty and compromise humiliate even the bravest souls, only one tactic is practical and beneficial. To be unflinching.”
Nikos Kazantzakis

Starting from the conclusion that the state and society are inherent elements of this aged civilization, no matter the face and facet they are presented through, being an enemy of individual freedom, we, from our side, welcome to the political foreground the leftist-statists of SYRIZA and the nationalists of ANEL promising to disturb their social peace in every opportunity and with all our strength.

As every herd need its shepherd, so does the majority, which sealed in the elections the perpetuation of its slavery, needs its savior. This time it chose to wait under the governmental table of SYRIZA’s vendors of hope hoping to grab a pittance, waiting the social and economical advancement their Alexis had promised them before the elections. Promises given by SYRIZA were particularly attractive and alleviative for the masses, severely in the regard of the latest period of harsh state politics of the previous governments. Politics implemented by the capitalist states, regardless of ideological differences and colors, aims at the conservation of social peace and that’s why they make sure the resentment and indignation of the masses are absorbed at the source. The digestible left rhetoric and its promises for moderation seemed to have convinced not only the chameleon voters but also a part of the anarchist milieu which rushed to support it, notarizing its flirt with the Left regime. Reality, however, confirms that hopes remain illusions. Humanitarian, reformist or refined authority means nothing more than the assignment of our lives’ administration to others.

The same time that the mob celebrates along with SYRIZA for the so-called victories in the European negotiations, the same time the internal judgments in police [performance] take place while simultaneously a huge terror-show is being organized with invasions into anarchists’ houses, abductions and arrests of people followed by the relevant TV cannibalism, presenting them as products for consumption in favor of society’s TV tastes. It’d be best for the leadership and hangers on of the Ministries of Justice and Public Order to realize that we are not going to stay and watch our comrades and anarchist prisoners being derided. As long as authority exists there will always be rebellious individualities embodying the internal enemy.

“The most important thing, however, is to juxtapose ourselves against society. A behavior that will indicate that we are not going to surrender to society, nor centralize our activities around it, but that we will live by our own terms.”
Feral Faun

We call every rebellious individuality, every anarchist of praxis to increase and escalate our attacks in solidarity with the hunger strikers.

Inter Arma received and translated:

For two months now, after the revelation of the members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire escape plan, a witch hunt started in any direction. Since my arrest, however, and after that, things have gone out of control, with the counter-terrorism unit dogs going beyond any limits. The constant and unrepentant action of some people, who stubbornly refuse to accept the power of the prison guards, who locks them up in the concrete every night, has outraged all those who cannot understand what it means to live in pride and dignity. They won’t settle for the ones who have openly stood against them but, now, they’re also targeting people who, despite the fact that they have no political connection with us, chose neither to abandon their own people, nor to turn their back on the chased ones. Dirty as they might play, though, they can’t make us back down. To every hit of theirs, we’re going to forcefully answer back and with our heads up. Inertia and passivity are not included in our characteristics. So, since 2/3, I take part in the hunger strike, along with the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Prison Cell, demanding the immediate release of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos’ mother and the second one’s girlfriend. We are determined to get to the end…

NOT A STEP BACK

P.S. What needs to be said is much more; however, it is important for someone to be able to dissociate the occasions, and what comes first now is the immediate release of the ones who have nothing to do with the case. All the rest can wait. At the moment, the only thing I have to say is that this is not the beginning and definitely not the end of a story, but it is about the route, and this is where beauty lies.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF THE RELATIVES OF THE CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE MEMBERS

SUPPORT FOR ALL THE HUNGER STRIKERS’ FIGHT

1. For the abolition of the A’ counter-terror law (article 187),

2. For the abolition of the B’ counter-terror law (article 187A),

3. The abolition of the hood-law,

4. The abolition of the C’ type prisons law,

5. The liberation of Savvas Xiros for medical reasons,

6. The abolition of the Public Prosecutor provision requiring the violent taking of DNA (and generally, the police manipulation with the construction of culprits through DNA).

Communique by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire about the hunger strike (Greece)

HUNGER STRIKE: CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE – UNLESS WE DIE FOR EACH OTHER, WE ARE ALREADY DEAD

On March 3rd, “justice” decided on the pre-trial detention of the mother of the comrades Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the second one’s girlfriend, with the charge of accession and participation in a terrorist organization.

Behind the obvious ridiculousness of the charge, it is the morbid vindictiveness of the counter-terrorism unit and the judicial authority in hiding, which wishes to blackmail emotionally both the two comrades and all of us. It is not just a vengeance tending to the zillion, it is an attempt to disqualify us. Essentially, they demand an unconditional surrender from us, a silent truce and a farewell to dignity, otherwise there will always be some “hospitable” cells for our relatives in the prisons of democracy.

We will not do them the favor. The war against the power has been indelibly forged inside us and flows like blood in our veins. We will not hand over one millimeter to the enemies of freedom, judges and cops.

We are facing the most vulgar sentimental siege. Beloved ones, who have no political affinity with us, but only a biological and sentimental one, have been kidnapped and kept as hostages by the judicial mafia. In this specific case, the priesthood of justice even abrogates the ridiculousness of its own official rules since, on the pre-trial detention measure, their “holy” law stipulates that «pre-trial detention shall apply only in cases where the defendant is suspected of escape or committing similar offenses».

Which one, even of our enemies, thinks that our relative are “suspected of escape” or “committing crimes” – which they haven’t actually committed? Apparently no one…

This narration of the current affairs is not a part of a personal story or an emotionally charged bracket during the experience of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

On the contrary, it is a part of the total repression strategy, coordinated by the high priests of judges, cops and journalists.

The first doors have already started to knock at dawn…

On Saturday, the police operation under the code name “Galatas” (“Milk man”) is made known, in order for the fugitive – member of the R.S. (Revolutionary Struggle) to be tracked down [Pola Roupa], while press reports talk about possible research in the paternal home of the member of R.S., Nikos Maziotis. Moreover, the same day, police and public prosecutors raid anarchists’ homes, after an «anonymous phone call concerning the existence of weapons and explosives».

Although the conclusion of the researches was concentrated into the fucking official paper with two words, «nothing found», in fact, we are in the preface of police and judicial heavy handedness.

Inside this confounded field, where sadness and rage mix with each other, at the same time, with our own hunger strike about the liberation of our relatives, there’s the hunger strike against the C’ type prisons, the terror-law, the 187 law, the hood-law, the fascist police manipulation of the taking of DNA, as well as the liberation of Savvas Xiros taking place. This hunger strike was organized and announced long ago and has our full political agreement. We urgently decided on our hunger strike, as a gag reflex to the captivity imposed to our relatives.

These two hunger strikes are, however, directly linked as they meet as the supplementation of one another. Specifically, the hunger strike about the liberation of our relatives is the physical and political ramification of the terror law application, whose abolition is set as a request of the other political prisoners’ hunger strike.

In our case, we propose the pointed–personal reference to our relatives, because the threat of the constant upgrading of the terror law, from an image of the future, has turned into the fascist current reality, which captivates our own people.

This is why there is no middle way. Either our relatives are released, or there will be the first hunger strikers to die during the last 40 years in Europe, with a left government as a background.

We once more make clear that we don’t ask a thing for ourselves. We have claimed full political responsibility for the whole plan of our escape from Koridallos prison, we have made our self-criticism on our “failures” in public and we keep unrepentant our will for freedom and anarchy, which will only come from our own hands, not by the passive awaiting of the laws.

What we demand is the liberation of our relatives, kidnapped by power.

It would be conscientious and emotional suicide, if we tried to transfuse our political features to this case. No matter how much we hate the logic of victimization, we would be blind if we did not recognize that, in this case, our relatives are the prosecutors’ scapegoats – trophies for our choices.

This is why, when we talk about our relatives, we don’t completely release our words’ roughness, as we do not intend to play political games on the backs of our people. Moreover, nor their legal defense has anything to do with the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. We will always be by their side, the way they have been by our side, without our political choices intersecting.

The only certain thing is that we maintain our roughness and the absoluteness of our own choices to the decision on hunger strike until death. We move on with the confidence of the ones playing it all for the triumph of the unconquered and free life.

Perhaps it is blood needed for the freedom to grow.
But this is how it is…

We die the way we chose to live; with dignity that won’t capitulate even against death.

Because, genuine freedom only exists in the struggle for freedom.

WE NEVER FORGET – WE NEVER FORGIVE

HUNGER STRIKE UNTIL THE DEATH FOR THE LIBERATION OF OUR RELATIVES

SOLIDARITY AND VICTORY TO ALL HUNGER STRIKERS’ STRUGGLE

1. For the abolition of the A’ counter-terror law (article 187),
2. For the abolition of the B’ counter-terror law (article 187A),
3. The abolition of the hood-law,
4. The abolition of the C’ type prisons law,
5. The liberation of Savvas Xiros for medical reasons,
6. The abolition of the Public Prosecutor provision requiring the violent taking of DNA (and generally, the police manipulation with the construction of culprits through DNA).

Statement of Christos Rodopoulos to the special appellate investigator (Greece)

Friday, March 6th, 2015

On Research Methodology

Life is a non-factual continuum for the understanding, of which, the use of quantification techniques – endearing especially in the modern technocratic “society” – fails both in terms of structure and intention.

One example of these techniques is the huge indictment you impose on me. A text which is abstruse, among other things, and when it is read by the will for life and freedom. By the will for union with the nature of life and its creations, but also with the freedom those are offering selflessly, to any creature that wishes to get closer with the reverence of the participant and the drive of the one seeking.

Perhaps you already started discerning – if you indeed, even in an instant, abdicate the role of the bearer of such a text – the gap existing between your investigative questions and my situation.

So, let’s not move on to them and seize this earned time, in order to hark, among others, a distant burr, deriving from this gap.

……

And of course not, this burr is not from the endless machines of Alexandras Avenue*. It is the silently thunderous pain the penal scalpel of quantification creates in the souls of the ones subsisting and inside the prison cells.

But here I am going to end this statement of mine, although abruptly, but hoping to a not further demarcation of anything flowing from it.

Christos Rodopoulos


Note: Christos Rodopoulos was detained in Domokos’ type C prison and faces charges concerning the attempted prison escape by CCF and his alleged participation in the group.

Text of anarchist hunger striker Nikos Maziotis about the CCF members’ hunger strike (Greece)

Friday, March 6th, 2015

NO ONE LEFT ALONE IN THE FACE OF STATE REPRESSION

Political prisoners have currently launched a hunger strike in Greek prisons beginning from March 2nd 2015. Some of them, like me, have a common context of demands regarding: the abolition of the ‘antiterrorism’ legislations, the abolition of the hoodie law and the type C prisons, and the release of the convicted 17N member Savvas Xiros on health grounds.

At the same time, the political prisoners of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire have also begun a hunger strike, demanding the release of their family members who were recently arrested and placed under preventive detention, after it was disclosed that CCF members organised a plan to escape Koridallos prisons.

Regardless of differences in demands, I support the CCF prisoners’ struggle as regards their demand. Despite the political differences between political prisoners and the problems that have arisen among them, despite the different context of the hunger strikes, I believe that people in solidarity, the anarchist/anti-authoritarian space should support all political prisoners. No one should be left alone in the face of repression.

CCF Escape case: Report about the inquisition – 6 March 2015 – Updated (Greece)

Friday, March 6th, 2015

UPDATED

As is known, the CCF imprisoned members are on hunger strike until death. Christos’ and Gerasimos’ mother and Gerasimos’ wife testified to the investigating judge on Tuesday, where they both denied the charge of being members of a “terrorist organization” (which is what they are charged with). The comrades’ mother only accepted the charge of “harboring a criminal”, and she was remanded by the counter-terror state. Gerasimos’ wife was also remanded the same day.

On March 4th, Christos Tsakalos wrote a political claim of his own, concerning the escape attempt, and Giorgos Polydoros published a text as well, as a personal friend of his brother was arrested (he was released along with the woman who was arrested on Saturday).

On March 5th, Aggeliki S. and the 39-year-old comrade Christos R. who was arrested in the neighbourhood of Galatsi on February 28th were demanded to testify. Aggeliki gave a statement saying she did not recognise the court and declared herself as anarchist. Aggeliki was then detained in Korydallos, and she had already began a hunger strike from the point of her arrest with the common aims of CCF. Christos R. also gave a statement, and was immediately remanded to Domokos Type C prison.

On March 6th, Christos Polydoros, brother of Giorgos, voluntarily went to the public prosecutor to speak against the repression of the family and friends of CCF, so the prosecutor vermin ordered his arrest. Currently, Christos Polydoros is being held by the anti-terrorist force in the Athens police headquarters [he is now released, 10 March].

CCF Escape case: Statement of Giorgos Polydoros (Greece)

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

The text was sent to mass media:

From the first moment, we have claimed responsibility for the escape plan from Korydallos prison, when it was uncloaked, we the 10 members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

The last five days, we see our relatives and their friends being dragged and being assailed, who have nothing to do with the case and, indeed, detaining the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the second one’s wife.

The accusation of involvement in [terrorist] organization, they are charged with by the counter-terrorism unit, is ridiculous and unsustainable. They’re calling a 60-year-old mother and the wife members [of CCF] and detain them, under the pretext that they’re suspected of fleeing. We are talking about people with permanent residences and who were visiting us in the visiting hours in prison. Who are the trashes of counter-terrorism unit fooling with? We are experiencing a moment where the counter-terrorism unit is doing whatever it wants and has gone beyond any limit of amorality, without giving an account to anyone. Its political enemies are us and not our relatives. If it wants to strike someone, let it strike us and leave the clowning aside.

We also know that today are the evaluations of police, so everyone understands what a dirty game is being played in the background and the show they have set, in order to get promotions.

From Monday 2/3, we all ten members of the Cells have begun a hunger strike until death, in order for the four relatives and their friends to be set free. They have nothing to do with our actions. They will either set them free, or let them prepare themselves to count the first dead political prisoners.

At the same time, we support the hunger strike taking place in prisons, for the abolition of the counter-terrorism law, the hood-law and the C’ Type prisons. The situation the counter-terrorism unit created for our families is the over-the-top consequence of the terror law and opens new doors.

CCF Escape case: Statement from Christos Tsakalos (Greece)

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

The statement was sent to mass media:

These days we’re experiencing the ultimate triumph of the counter-terrorism unit’s state.

After supporting and setting an entire show with cameras showing arrested people with hoods on their heads being dragged up the GADA [counter-terror hq] stairs, it completed the coup with the detention of my mother and my brother’s wife.

And although yesterday we claimed full political and penal responsibility for the escape plan as Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, all of a sudden I hear that both my mother and my brother’s wife are detained.

Accidentally, it is the same day that the [neo-nazi political party] Golden Dawn members are released from prison. Moreover, accidentally, this afternoon there are the evaluations of the police*.

As in the world we live there aren’t that many coincidences but only expediencies, it is clear that there is an expediency game being played here.

Apart from the ridiculousness of the accusation against them and against the two personal friends of theirs, the accusation of the two detainees isn’t evaluated as necessary for their detention.

Their laws stipulate that: “Someone is to be detained only when judged that he is suspected of escaping or committing similar crimes”. What reasonable human being believes something like this, either about my mother, or about my brother’s wife?

What is taking place right now reminds one of the fascist state in Germany, in the 1970s, when, in order to avenge the RAF, it launched a pogrom against their relatives and their lawyers.

Back then, the German state counted the first dead hunger strikers.

Maybe someone wants to count the first dead hunger strikers here in Greece as well.

This is why we’re not going to end the hunger strike until death, unless our relatives and friends, who are testifying today, are released.

Christos Tsakalos

* Christos refers to the procedure of police officers being evaluated for their service.

Translator’s note: A female friend of Christos’ mother (accused of CCF membership) and Giorgos Polydoros brother’s friend have been set free with restrictive bail conditions.

"Hunger strike until death to protect our relatives and their friends" : Announcement of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Imprisoned Members’ Cell (Greece)

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Two months ago our escape plan from Korydallos prison was revealed. It’s something we claimed full responsibility for and made our self-critique. After that, an unprecedented hunt for the construction of guilt has started. The target is our relatives and their friends. We saw, two days ago, Giorgos Polydoros brother’s friend and a personal friend of Christos’ and Gerasimos’ Tsakalos being arrested. They, therefore, started talking about “regional members”, “mailers” and “revolutionary fund”. What for? For a bag of clothes? For some money from contributions and solidarity events? Or for the famous “shooting lasers”? The accused man did not even know that there were lasers in the bag. In addition, the most important is that these lasers are toys being sold for 2 euros in Monastiraki and with which we wanted to create confusion at the time of the attack. Why does the counter-terrorist agency not say it, but, in contrast, presents them as weapons?

So today, we watch the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos being arrested along with Gerasimos’ wife, because Aggeliki Spyropoulou was found in their family house. Aggeliki is a rare comrade and we are connected to her with absolute political affinity. The two comrades had told her that if she ever found herself in a difficult position, she could go to their house. Because we don’t abandon neither our ideas, nor our people. Aggeliki had been wanted for so much time and went to their house asking to be temporarily accommodated by their mother. What should their mother do? Close the door to her? She’s not that kind of person and knows the value of humanity for a chased man. In the house stays from time to time due to family relations the wife of Gerasimos Tsakalos, too. That’s why she was there as well.

The whole responsibility is exclusively ours. The relatives and their friends bear no responsibility, having nothing to do with the case and what they’re accused of. As for Aggeliki, we’ll be there for her and she knows she has our support. She’ll be among us, with her head up, in the difficult path we’ve chosen.

But we are not gonna sit here and watch them cannibalizing our relatives and their friends. The counter-terrorism agency crossed the line. We are their opponents not our relatives. So this is it. Since today, 2/3, we go on hunger strike until death to protect our relatives and their friends, so that they won’t end up in jail. The responsibility is ours alone and we are the ones taking it. UNTIL THE END! If they put them in jail, we prefer to choose death. This is what responsibility means and everyone makes their choices…

Berlin: Security company vehicles torched by anarchists (Germany)

Friday, February 27th, 2015

For a hellfire on earth…

And once again autonomous cells struck. This night we carried out a sabotage in Berlin, in complicity with all the fighters of our worldwide conspiracy. With fire we transformed two cars belonging to the company ‘Sicherheit Nord’ completely worthless for the watchdogs of the system. With this attack we promise our attention and support to those persecuted and incarcerated by the pigs.

Strength to Tamara Sol Farías Vergara, Mónica Andrea Caballero and Francisco Javier Solar Domínguez.

Strength to the prisoners of the Revolutionary Struggle (Epanastatikos Agonas), who are locked up in maximum security prisons.

The dogs that are hunting us down will be hunted by us at any time. Furthermore, we enjoyed the attempted prison escape by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, as well as the assassination of the chief executioner of Domokos type C prison.

We encourage all those who are able, to make attacks against the prison system on a daily basis.

Also the prison laborers who bake donuts for the Olympics propaganda, and thus further dig their own grave, could instead poison a few sports fans of the Berlin Senate with arsenic.

… for a society without coercion and prisons!
For Anarchy!

Freedom for all prisoners!

Translation notes:
Recently, as part of the city authorities’ push to represent Germany in the bid for the 2024 Olympics, the Berlin Justice Senator Thomas Heilmann tried to give away donuts (Pfannkuchen) decorated with the Olympic rings that were baked by inmates from Tegel prison.

Final message on video reads: “See each other on the 18th of March in Frankfurt – make ECB’s opening into a disaster.”

Poster in solidarity with CCF by the Collaboration of Anarchists Memento Mori (Greece)

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

The looks that embraced darkness, are lit only by the fire that envelops your aging world.

Another smear campaign by domination against the anarchist insurgents of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, has been completed. The state, in excellent cooperation with the benevolent consciences of reputable citizens and other honest revolutionaries, tried to isolate our comrades by hiding their desire to win freedom and by putting them in the same bag with what justice calls common crime.

This cowardly campaign of the state, aims not only to isolate the CCF members from the honest social ‘revolutionary’ circles, but also to distort the importance of insurrection as the supreme act of war against the existent completely by connecting it with the informal mirror of the state, the mafia.

CCF Escape case: “DE PROFUNDIS” – a communiqué from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

Monday, February 9th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

PUBLIC SELF-CRITICISM

We had no intention of contributing to the continuing of the public downfall and inner cannibalism that broadened with skillful architecturing by the police, journalists and the miserable interview given by Xiros[1]. But misery reigns…

i) Once a snitch… always a traitor

What is more infuriating than the snitch of 17th November[2] talking about morality… He who, in his preliminary statements in 2002 (they are published on internet) was whining and begging the cops to go easy on him, as a return for his cooperation with persecution authorities.

What is more challenging than the snitch being presented as the critic of the “movement”. He who, until this day, hasn’t even apologized to his former comrades for the life-long sentences he “offered” them with his unbiased confessions to the counter-terrorism agency (without them even so much as slapping him).

What is more contradictory than the ridiculous aspiring petty leader asking for the collective procedures and diversity to be respected. In his raving where he was impersonating the reincarnation of Karaiskakis[3], he was exhibiting an authority complex that was testing the nerves of the comrades, who were putting up with him and helping him to escape for an entire year, with huge patience and by risking their life and freedom from the cops.

CCF Escape case: "Washing the mud away…" – Inter Arma’s announcement (Greece)

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

This announcement is a response to the published articles of various media cesspools of the regime, that involve Inter Arma in their reports concerning manuscripts that are among the police findings in the case of the prison escape attempted by the anarchist group Conspiracy of Cells of Fire but also to the sad but expected speculation from a part of the so-called anarchist “milieu”.

For over a month now, with the electoral festival as a background, counter-terrorism agency and its snitches in the media carry out a large scale communicative campaign in the context of the prison escape attempted by CCF and some criminal prisoners. Dozens of findings, theories, police updates, phone conversations and interviews have been released to the public. It’s not the first time that the snitches of the cops involve us in various ways in such situations. And while they usually use more of their imagination, like in the case of project Nemesis, when the were referring to us as part of the project, this time they are targeting us for the obvious, which is the communication with comrades that are imprisoned in the dungeons of Democracy. The reason why counter-terrorism agencies internationally move communicably and operationally against projects like Inter Arma, has been analyzed quite a few times. The counter-information projects of those anarchists that still consider anarchist struggle to be a battle against the regime, are an obvious target for the enemy. (more…)

CCF Escape case: Text concerning recent events by Anarchist Squat Nadir (Thessaloniki, Greece)

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

TYPE C’ PRISONS, THE ESCAPE ATTEMPT OF CCF, THE SCENARIOS ABOUT OSMOSIS BETWEEN CRIMINALS AND TERRORISTS AND THE JOURNALISTS’ CESSPOOL

We are not going to talk about how C’ type prisons are structured, how they were built or how they’re going to be improved. We will just say that they are not any kind of impenetrable barrier or some invincible beast. C’ type prisons are another act of war against the prisoners of war. They are the answer of the state against anarchists who haven’t bent down their heads, that every day hone the axe of war, who haven’t quit and haven’t delayed in action against the enemy. They are built for those who didn’t turn into “coffee shop guerrillas” or “imprisoned ideologists” towards repression. Besides, the state never spared these people. And the state’s monopoly of violence has always been broken only when the recipient of it disputed it through action.

ON THE CCF’s ESCAPE ATTEMPT

On January 4th, there was an escape from Korydallos prison planned by the members of CCF. The previous day, the cops disrupted the escape, for which they admit that it was one of the most perfectly organized hits of the last decades. (more…)
