A report of the trial of anarchist Marios Seisidis – Athens (Greece)

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Comrade Marios Seisidis has been acquitted of six of the robberies that he had been accused of but was found guilty of the bank heist at Solonos street and three consecutive ‘attempted murder’ charges (concerning the bank guard and two police officers).
He has been sentenced to 36 years imprisonment in total. The court did not accept the defendant’s lawyer’s request to get a penalty suspension until the second degree court nor did it accept any attenuating circumstances for Marios Seisidis. Once again the vengeful tactics of the judicial system against our comrade were more than obvious.
It was encouraging that lots of comrades were present in the courthouse where they protested the court’s decision with slogans against the judges.

What is the crime of robbing a bank compared with the crime of founding one.
Bertolt Brecht

BANKS ARE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION, THOSE WHO MAKE THEM FUNCTION ARE TERRORISTS IN THE TRUE SENSE OF THE WORD
FOR THE SABOTAGE OF THE EXISTENT BY ALL THOSE WHO ARE NOT AFRAID TO REJECT DOOM-STRICKEN SECURITY AND VENTURE INTO THE UNKNOWN.

As a contribution to the international call for solidarity with the imprisoned anarchist comrades (August 23-30), and as a denotation of support to the recently arrested and imprisoned comrades K. Sakkas and M. Seisidis, we hung 2 banners and wrote slogans in Athens, and we hung a banner in Volos.

Letter from imprisoned anarchists Kostas Sakkas and Marios Seisidis (Greece)

Saturday, August 20th, 2016

On August 4th, because of a random police check just outside Sparta, the journey of freedom ends. Two different paths ended, two different beginnings, which however converge on a common purpose. That of freedom. The freedom that was not given to us and was not granted even for a moment. Contrarily, each one of us, in our own way and with our own characteristics, fought very hard for something most consider obvious.

We fought for every free glance to the sky, every free handshake, every free hug, every free breath.

We asserted what the persecutory mechanisms deprived us of, our only weapons the endless desire for freedom, but also the courage we took from the thought that we also continue to fight for those who stayed behind.

On the other hand, on the opposite of freedom and life itself, we came up against the uniformed murderers of the state, the obedient dogs, the servants of the bourgeoisie and its capital. Those who did not hesitate to shoot at us from behind, those who tortured us because we instinctively did the obvious, trying to escape from their hands. (more…)

Responsibility claim for the ATM arson barrage on 7/10, Athens (Greece)

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

7 October 2011

Responsibility claim for the ATM arson barrage on 7/10

In the early hours of Friday 7/10 we destroyed 6 bank ATMs at:

-Kannigos square, Pireus bank
-Vironas area, Probank
-Galatsi area, Alpha bank
-Kipseli area, Alpha bank
-Gizi area, Agrotiki bank
-Aiolou street, National bank

This action of ours we dedicate to anarchist comrade Simos Seisidis, who is in the hospital of Koridallos prisons and is tried on 16/9. Simos was wanted since 2006 -and has a bounty on him since 2009 along with comrades Marios Seisidis and Grigoris Tsironis, from Mihalis Hrisohoidis, of the sum of 600.000 euro- for the robbery of the National Bank on Solonos street, for which he was acquitted.

Simos after denying to stop at an accidental control, on 3/5/10 in the area of Keramikos, was chased and shot in the back by cop Panagiotis Bokos.

Afterwards Bokos in collaboration with the rest of the pigs that participated in the arrest, beat our comrade when he was down and already heavy wounded.

Afterwards Simos is hospitalized in the slaughterhouse of KAT hospital being guarded by well armed sadists of the police, that provoked him and harassed his family every time they visited him, functioning as arrogant handlers . Even the moment of amputation of his leg the cops did not hesitate to be in the operating room.

In a city where the uniformed mercenary that patrols and protects the plutocracy and its symbols continuously increases, trying to repress any reaction against the existing, some will always resist against the modern totalitarianism that they want to impose in our lives.

FREEDOM to anarchist Simos Seisidis.

SOLIDARITY to anarchist Aris Sirinidis, which is being tried for the comrade attitude that he kept to his persecuted friend Simos.

SOLIDARITY to the 2 wanted comrades Marios Seisidis, Grigoris Tsironis.

FREEDOM TO ALL IMPRISONED FIGHTERS.
