Athens: Attack agains OPKE unit in Exacheia

On Tuesday , December 6 of 2016 , 8 years after the murder of the antiauthoritarian Alexandros Grigoropoulos by the cops, anarchists , antiauthoritarians , neighbors and people who hang around Exarcheia decided to break the normality of the miserable life imposed by the social standards and resist the state repression. Every year, that day the neighborhood of Exarcheia is surrounded by cops trying to stop the vengeful rage of those who take the streets fighting.

But this time, the resistance of the rioters was more organized and coordinated than ever, following the response against the state in the clashes of November 15 and 17. The anti-state offensive was fierce, and that was proved because – despite the murderous firing of rubber bullets and tear gas directly into the bodies – The uniformed fascists only managed to pass the burning barricades late at night, and after most of the people , especially the organized ones had already left the place.

This victory of ours hurt the servants of the state, who projected all their psycological complexes beating the arrested people of that night. Their cowardly violence and the attempt of the greek bullies to humilliate the arrested comrades is the proof of their bitter defeat.
Also the filthy judges plays their part on the repression of the insurgents when acting in the name of all the state authorities send three of the arrested on pre-trial imprisonement.
The surrounding of Exarcheia was already intensified before 6 December, with the characteristic example of the invasion of motorcicle police forces and the control of migrants. It was like that until the 6/12, particularly with the presence of special forces of OPKE in the area.

We answer the murderes of minors with the same thing that they learn to taste all this years: fire.
In the evening of Friday , December 16, we choose to attack the bullies of the greek police located at the intersection of Kallidromiou street and Oikonomou street, supposedly to protect the supermarket besides. For those who knows the area of Exarcheia, is obvious that the deployment of OPKE units in that place serves other purposes and is framed in a broader plan that seeks to control the neigborhood.

The tasks of this unit (OPKE) in the past years at the city outskirts and specially in the west zone of Athens had as only objective the military-style ID control to youngsters , outcast and migrants. The ridiculous reasons that they use to impose their reign of terror in Exarcheia will be answered with gasoline and fire over their heads. The armed cops of OPKE showed their huge skills when they began to run away in panic and hide behind a car in sight of the 15 molotovs flying against them.

The clashes and the diffusion of insurrectionary situations must be a daily practice. That December 6 light up the metropolis every night, until freedom and anarchy.

FIRE AND EXPLOSIONS AT THE MINDS OF THE COPS
FREEDOM TO THE 3 ARRESTED OF 6/12 WHO ARE ON PRE-TRIAL IMPRISONEMENT.

Anarchists ( the ones who attacked there, in that way)

Leipzig, Germany: 3 public order police vehicles torched in memory of Alexis Grigoropoulos

37 27 17

In the late evening hours of 06.12. we torched three vehicles in Leipzig. There are many reasons for this, for us the occasion was the anniversary of the assassination of Alexis Grigoropoulos in December 2008 by Greek cops in Athens. Nothing has been forgiven – no one is forgotten.

We were pleased to learn that on the same night in Berlin, some people had apparently set fire to the door of a public order police office.

Super also that a few weeks ago a cop car was torched in front of the station in Connewitz – who needed it already.

We look forward to a delightful mobilization against the G20.

Down with all states – death to Germany!

Greece: Christmas tree set on fire by anarchists in Crete on the anniversary of the murder of Alexis Grigoropoulos

Because of the day of the black anniversary of the murder of Alexis Grigoropoulos from the cop Korkoneas, some comrades chose to give a different meaning to this night by placing our own pebble in the frames of conflict. As a minimal token of protest against everything we experience and the consumerist craze of Christmas, with the help of flammable material and our will to leave the discussions and nonsense of the cafes, we proceeded to act. Just before the beginning of the demonstration we set fire to the Christmas tree in the central market square of Chania and which represents the consumerist frenzy that takes over the brains of the living-dead of this country and not only. As soon as it started burning, a group of store owners whose stores were not endangered, rushed to put out the fire with buckets and hoses, their petite-bourgeois not able to understand the nature of this act, resulting in only one part of the tree being burnt.

Every Christmas the slave-like citizens count, in their empty pockets, the crumbs thrown to them by the bourgeois so they can live, and like a large herd of sheep they storm the multinationals shopping for soul-less materials, not out of need but out of habit. We as anarchists state that we will not be present at the city’s Christmas fiestas not only because
we find these Christmas “offerings” one more profit game of the above but because human dignity is above all other means of transaction. The city’s mayor Tasos Vamvoukas and his posse with one more year in the seat, thinks that the city should be festively dressed, irrelevantly of the people sleeping on the benched in rough conditions and even die from the cold and illnesses.

We are against any kind of state or non-state mechanism that aims at
dominating our lives.

FIRE TO SHOPPING
WE WANT LIFE!

DECEMBER IS A MONTH OF INSURRECTION AND STRUGGLE!

LONG LIVE ANARCHY!

A Christmas present for the cops

In remembrance of Alexis who was murdered by the cops in Athens 8 years ago we have visited the friends of his murderers in the immediate vicinity of the Alexanderplatz and left 10 liters of petrol as a gift at the entrance door.
The solidarity of this action also applies to our prisoners who are sitting in jail because of the bank expropriation and are waiting to be sentenced by the executioners.
More solidarity greetings to Tuna, Balu, Cem and Ali.

We have noted with joy that in Leipzig last night some other people decided to attack the state and it’s lackeys.

Government institutions! See you in Hamburg!

For freedom!
