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.

“In the framework of acting around the mass anti-cuts demo of 26th March 2011, we attacked RBS in Bristol during the night of 24th March 2011.
The main RBS building by Bristol Temple Meads was attacked by an anarchist affinity group armed with stones and glass bottles filled with paint, breaking windows and damaging staff vehicles. RBS, which was bailed out by the government, recently paid 780 million pounds in staff bonuses for the last year, plus 7.7million pounds bonus to RBS boss Stephen Hester. The government makes its money back by clawing it from the people at the base through the implementation of austerity measures and increased living costs, people who are already pushed to their limit.
We have acted outside the dimension of the mass demo on 26th March to make the point that, although some of us also attended there with the mass of the people on the streets of London, it is certain that our attack, solidarity and struggle demand of us that we act as well in our everyday lives and not just in the moment of spectacle. If the struggle stays at a certain level (essentially lobbying for the abolition of this or that law, the granting of certain rights, the manipulation of state finance, attending an ‘event’ etc), then the struggle will remain at a grotesque and unsatisfactory citizenism, perfectly in step with capital.
This action is dedicated to all those trapped in debt and struggling against the capitalist system on these islands, and it is also for those resisting corporate onslaughts abroad. We especially refer to those fighting against the Canadian Tar Sands mining project that RBS is funding, and to the peasants and allies fighting in Kulon Progo, Indonesia, against a similar project to extract iron from their coastline sands. The peasants in Kulon Progo specifically requested and appreciate attacks such as the one made against RBS on 24th March. The Indonesian state is not known for its record in human, animal and ecological welfare. Indonesia likes to hide behind the image of pleasurable modern tourism for rich Europeans and their university back-packer sons and daughters armed with gap-year money, mobile phones and laptops, whilst the reality on the ground is very different. British arms companies and banks have helped and continue to facilitate murderous deeds and carnage there.
Finally, we will never forget about the prisoners of the social war in Greece, where a sporadically strong anti-capitalist/anti-authoritarian/anarchist struggle has been happening now for years; this is for Simos Seisidis, who has a trial on 30th March 2011. We keep him in our hearts as an unknown friend and to him we extend our hugs; this is also for those prisoners of the Revolutionary Struggle – Nikos, Pola, and Kostas; for all the prisoners of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, those who take responsibility and those who are accused; this is for ALL of the comrades there, and also ALL the dignified prisoners here in the UK who do not bow their heads, outside or inside the walls… In these times if you don’t begin fighting, you are truly lost and deserve the contempt our enemies receive.”

“Last night the windows of Nat West Bank on Mansfield Road were smashed out, and anti-capitalist graffiti was left on the side of the building. We did this because we refuse to submit to the will of capitalism. Every single day that goes our love and rage grow. Love for our friends and comrades around the world. Rage at the forces which try to cripple their spirit and oppress all efforts to find freedom in their lives. Nat West bank is owned by the Royal Bank of Scotland who violently support the destruction of the earth and the prison system, they are merely one aspect of the system entrapping everything it comes into contact with. And this action was just one small gesture against all its claims.
Until capitalism, white supremacy, and patriarchy are destroyed we will find ways in which to fight back. We remember those who have fought before us and we search for those who will fight with us.
Love and Solidarity to Simos Seisidis and all those who are caged by this society and its culture.
Yesterday we sharpened our teeth, as we prepare to fight back.”
