On 03/01/2015, at night, the members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire Christos Tsakalos and Gerasimos Tsakalos, the member of FAI Andreas Tsavdaridis and the anarchist Spyros Mandylas were transferred to the special wing[*], in the basement of the womens’ section of Korydallos prison. The four comrades are well and high-spirited, they are able to communicate and their psychology is good. At the moment, there is no information about the rest of the comrades of C.C.F. concerning if and when they are going to be transferred as well.
The post will be updated as the situation develops.
[*] The ‘special wing’ is a dungeon.

On January 2nd, 2015, two more prisoners convicted as members of armed revolutionary organizations, anarchist Kostas Gournas (Revolutionary Struggle) and Dimitris Koufontinas (17 November), were transferred from the dungeon cells of Koridallos women’s prison to the maximum-security facility of Domokos. On the same morning, anarchist prisoners Yannis Naxakis and Grigoris Sarafoudis, both convicted for armed robbery in Pyrgetos-Larissa as well as for—alleged—participation in an armed revolutionary organization (Conspiracy of Cells of Fire), were also taken from the men’s prison in Koridallos to the type C prison in Domokos. Sarafoudis was moved to Domokos even though, for the present, he is co-accused in Filotas-Florina armed robbery case alongside other comrades, whose trial will continue in the special court of Koridallos prison this January.
Meanwhile, since New Year’s Eve until today, several other prisoners have been transferred to the maximum-security prison in Domokos.

Revolutionary Struggle member Nikos Maziotis contacted a comrade, letting everyone know that today, December 30th, 2014 he was transferred from Diavata prison to the type C maximum-security prison in Domokos. The comrade is locked up in a prison wing alone, but his morale remains strong.
NO COMRADE LEFT ALONE IN THE HANDS OF THE STATE.
SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON.

Inter Arma received and translated:
Yesterday, on Monday at 6 am, the cops barged into the cells of comrades Panagiotis Michalakoglou and M.B., letting them know that, without prior notice, they will be transferred from F wing of Korydallos prison. Panagiotis Michalakoglou was initially transferred to the Transfer Agency in Thessaloniki and afterwards to Nigritas prison in Serres (northern Greece). M.B. was transferred in St.Stefanos prison in Patra, at 10.30 am.
According to an article written by Yiannis Souliotis in “Kathimerini” newspaper, the comrades were transferred to other prisons “due to the impending arrival of long-term convict Panagiotis Vlastos at that wing”. According to the case file, the whole operation in Athens and Thessaloniki started with an “anonymous tip” which informed the cops that three out of the six people arrested during this operation, took part in the armed attack against the residence of the German ambassador in Chalandri which took place last December (the responsibility for that action was claimed by Popular Fighters Group).
Upon their arrival at prison, the two comrades refused to be subjected to body check and stated that they are anarchist political prisoners. Communiques written by the comrades will be published in the following days.
From the first moment, the state tried to isolate the two comrades from the rest of the anarchist prisoners by transferring them to the F protection wing of Korydallos prison, although they both asked to be transferred in A wing. This tactic bears a strong resemblance to the case of the pre-trial detentions of CCF members, who were initially scattered to various prisons of the country. Efforts are already being made from lawyers (Fragiskos Ragousis for M.B. and Anni Paparousou for Panagiotis Michalakoglou) in order for the comrades to be transferred to another wing since their detention in protection wings is still happening in the prisons they were transferred yesterday.
The operation carried out by the Counter-terrorism agency’s dogs in Athens and Thessaloniki, although initiated with great ambitions, ended up in a fiasco, since the comrades are prosecuted for aggravated possession of arms and possession of explosives (grenade).

Centro Penitenciario de Topas – Salamanca.
Ctra. N-630, km. 314 37799 Topas (Salamanca)

This week anarchist fighter held hostage by the Spanish State Gabriel Pombo da Silva, was able to get out some information from the prison he’s held in. Gabriel informed that he’s still in A Lama prison and was told that the prison director prolonged his isolation for other month. So it is not known when the compa will be transferred to Topas prison in Salamanca.
Previously it was reported that a new precedent had been achieved in the case of Gabriel (his transfer from the shit conditions in A Lama), but it’s not the whole truth about the matter, because we only will know what’s happening, when the prison transfer really happens and partial info a lot of time can be false.
We rectify this information by publishing this clarification and explaining that for the moment Gabriel is still in A Lama and still in isolation. We are waiting for more news and when the facts are known for sure (with all the full infos), a text will be written and published.
Solidarity with Gabriel – Continue the antagonism!

News about Gabriel:
Yesterday (Sunday 20 July) was the last day in isolation for Gabriel (after one month).
The prison administration gave him the decision they took, to put him into the second degree (“normal” detention) but to transfer him to another jail : Topas (Salamanca).
Until now he doesn’t know when exactly, but it will probably succeed in some days. Gabriel was relieved to be leaving A Lama prison, but of course he is waiting to see how it will be in the other jail. Hopefully there will be some changes, thank you for the faxes.
There will be more news and information about Gabriel’s new address soon.

According to information received from ABC Belarus, Belarusian anarchist Ihar Alinevich is to be transferred to another prison colony because the colony he is in now is to be closed by the end of the summer. We don’t know to where and when he is transferred, but it makes sense to remove his address from all the lists until the new one is known. We await more information and will publish it when available.

Remember that he was already in Villena and was transferred to Valdemoro to bring him to the National Hearing to give testimony in relation to the events in Italy (Operation Ardire). After Gabriel’s refusal to give any statement, he was again transferred to Villena, again to keep him distant from his environment of family and friends.
His address is:
Gabriel Pombo da Silva
Centro Penitenciario Alicante II,
Ctra. N-330, km. 66,
03400 Villena (Alicante)

According to a message we received from RadioAzione, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, anarchist fighter imprisoned by German authorities after a shootout with border cops, has been extradited to Madrid. Gabriel had escaped from the prisons of Spain and fled, now it is thought he’ll be forced to ‘finish’ his prison time before being released.

On November 21st it was confirmed that Nicola Gai was transferred into the first high security wing (AS1) of San Michele prison in Alessandria, after two months of isolation regime in the prison of Sanremo.
The ban of meeting between Nicola and Alfredo has finally been revoked, and only their correspondence remains under censorship so far.
We send a strong embrace of solidarity to both Nicola and Alfredo as well as to all the other comrades currently imprisoned in the dungeons of Alessandria and across Italy.
You may send your letters to both comrades at this address:
Carcere San Michele, strada Casale 50/A, IT-15122 Alessandria, Italia
Saturday, August 4th, 2012
The comrades arrested on June 13 are being transferred to prisons with AS2 [High Security] sections. For this reason the ban on their meeting has also been lifted. Most likely all of the boys will be moved to Alexandria, the girls have all been transferred to Rebibbia. (more…)
