Athens: Banner for “Scripta Manent” case.

As a minimal sign of complicity and solidarity, we displayed a banner at the Polytechnic on Patision the night of June 19th.

Comrades in Italy, and specifically the 7 comrades of Croce Nera Anarchica, Radioazione and Anarhija.info, with the new operation which started at 2/6/17, are accused of articles 270bis (subversive association with purposes of terrorism) in conjunction with the anarchist comrades under investigation in the first part of the OP. Scripta Manent for the same things, and 414 of penal code (criminal solicitation, always with purposes of terrorism). This is the continuation of the first operation “Scripta Manent” where bastard Roberto Maria Sparagna organized, in order to suppress the comrades who spread the words and keep the flame of rebellion alive.

Be strong!

We stand on their side and give them the boost, with all means , to continue.

For a dangerous June!

Athens, Greece: Explosive attack against New Democracy politician Adonis Georgiades’s bookstore by CCF-FAI/IRF

Responsibility claim for the attack on Adonis Georgiades‘s bookstore.

On 3/15 we placed and detonated a clockwork explosive device at Adonis Georgiades’s bookstore at 263 Kifissias Av.

Adonis Georgiadis is a well known to all… picturesque, saturated and at the same time, a ridiculous political figure, who over the years moves within the (far)-right milieu according to his interests. Now an MP of New Democracy (the main right wing party) he does not miss any opportunity to propagate the neoliberal ideas whether in the parliament or in some television broadcast, being addicted to television as a TV persona. When not selling his nationalist noonsense (such as the books of Kostas Plevris – national-socialist figure) he makes “gifts” of 65 million euros to pharmaceutical companies who trade in human life. Specifically, Georgiades, as health minister in 2014, changed the pricing of drugs in favor of the pharmaceutical industries particularly favoring the Novartis company. Combined with the fact that his wife’s name featured in the Lagarde list, it’s proven that the TV booksalesman does not limit himself to book sales.

His rhetoric is always in convergence with the ideas of the party he belongs to each time, and often revolves around the issue of the repression of anarchists. He encourages and opens the way for intensification of repressive measures in all fields, from the diffuse street combative insurrectionary riots until further militarization of treating our imprisoned comrades (bringing back the high security prison cells – C Type, depriving prisoners of their permits etc.) This garbage knows -just like we do- that the anarchists of the deed are his enemies. He knows, as he said, that he fears those who are furiously fighting for freedom and dignity, those who destroy, with fire as an ally, all that he represents. He knows that the anarchists of the deed did not make a truce with their consciousness, concluding peace with the supposedly left government of SYRIZA as initially did a part of the anti-authoritarian milieu. Instead, we carried on on the path of continuous anarchist revolution demanding nothing less than everything. That’s why he’s afraid.

Such a populist could not be absent from the political agenda of New Democracy. His national-patriotic narrative finds its ground in a section of society offering him social acceptance, while maintaining the social consensus needed for him to continue advertising his nonsense. This specific TV booksalesman has chosen a clear position in the social war and makes his presence visible, since… being a cork helps him to float on the surface. N.D “invests” in its anti-anarchist campaign using A.Georgiades, M.Vorides, N.Dendias and the hidden reserve Ch.Athanasiou, as a vanguard. The names of these “crusaders” of anti-revolution are on the list of the new urban guerrilla.

To paraphrase the anti-anarchistic hysteria of ND, we agree that the distance between a sledgehammer and a Kalashnikov WHEN ACCOMPANIED BY REVOLUTIONARY CONSCIOUSNESS, is as long as the distance from insurrection to continuous revolution. This is the bet for every anarchist guerrilla group: the passage from insurrectionary anarchist violence to organized armed struggle against the tyrants of our life. A passage which sharpens the hazards of anarchist attacks, multiplying their aggressiveness and fierceness.

Recent anarchist attacks and acts of FAI and CCF are part of the underground prolonged battle against the world of power… And if the silence of the mass majority reminds one of a social cemetery, we know that the road to anarchy opens up by continuing and not by ending the hostilities against power. Because when we say anarchy it is not just a word, it is a way of life. We organise, we plan and we attack, filling the hours of the day with a perpetual dangerous anarchist activity not ever calming down. Thus, dead time becomes an ally in our rebel conspiracies. Because we‘re going to live life by daring and not by bowing to our oppressors.

Each attack is a promise to ourselves that “everything continues” and a signal to all imprisoned comrades that “nothing is over”. On March 24 three comrades in Chile are going on trial: Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores and Enrique Guzman, accused for the CCF Chile and other groups’ attacks. Our thought and our hearts are close to them knowing that we belong to the same generation, away from borders, nations and religions, with the unfulfilled feeling of freedom and rebellion that never ends as our only homeland…

PS: We will come back soon … MPOUMPOUKO we‘ll see you again …..

Greece: Responsibility claim for 6 coordinated incendiary attacks by CCF – Incendiary Destabilization Outbreaks / FAI-IRF

WE ARE THE ONES WHO WILL BRING THE CURTAIN DOWN

We claim responsibility for the 6 following arson attacks.

– A bank at Petralona a few streetss next to the consumer neighborhood of Gazi.
– The security agency FALCON at the main and busy Kifisias Avenue, which is being advertised by the journalistic trash of the television.
– A post office Savings Bank at the seemingly police state Aleksandra’s Avenue.
– 3 diplomatic corps vehicles

Cities are history‘s theatre. They are the places where life performs disciplined social roles, played by law abiding citizens or happy slaves in the reflection of digital communication displays’ and storefronts of consumption, while walking predetermined paths from wage-slavery to paid entertainment. Each move we make is controlled by the vigilant eyes of thousands of cameras on the streets, roadblocks by uniformed police and cops’ motor patrols.

In the current conditions of economic crisis, the only currency with a constant value is the currency of fear in the hands of authority. The fear that nothing can change, that we are few and that prison is lurking for those who dare to question authority’s orders. However life is running fast and cannot wait for those who are afraid to live. LOOK FEAR IN THE FACE AND FEAR WILL FLINCH AND LEAVE.

We must turn the cities into battlefields and the nights into our allies in urban guerilla surprise attacks. We must lay mines of fire in all the symbols of this world that keeps us imprisoned. We know that burning a bank or setting an official state car on fire is not sufficient; however the real power of illegal anarchist actions is that they are like spare keys. Spare keys that release people’s strength of rebellion, the strength to strike authority and live dangerously free. This is why we create small militant groups ready for action, here and now. We can’t wait for the soulless crowd; we can’t seek after proletarians that are asking only for a better salary. We are not shepherds for the masses of people to follow, nor are we gravediggers for those who have buried their lives into silence.

Through self-organization and informal coordination, we create a legacy of deeds in this fight against this authority of entrapment, breaking the pace of the legal order. These difficult times cannot break our beliefs in any way; on the contrary they become more acute, they reignite. We blend our hatred with conscience and dignity and when this mixture binds, it will poison and destroy the body of every prosecutor, every journalist, every cop, every security guard, every snitch, all kinds of henchmen and peaceful citizens and in general all the garbage that forms this sterilized society of security. The settled will never abandon their commodities and choose the road to rebellion; of that we are well aware. Fear of social rejection leads to inaction and conservative anarchist practices which are confined within the “internal” movement. Our means are purely illegal and we are not willing to make them more “social” and therefore acceptable, as much as the left or right wing stewards of power and the sympathizers-supporters of the movement are trying to convince us.

We became what we dreamt since we were children, ANARCHISTS OF THE DEED that don’t sleep at night and all we care for is to set your nights on fire and ruin your party by destabilizing on a regular basis the metropolitan normality. We are the ones that dare to risk where punishment and incarceration is lurking, deconstructing fear in all its aspects. Because in the end anarchy is in our hearts, in our minds, in every drop of blood that runs through our veins, in our illegal actions far away from your bourgeois morals and cleanness. Maybe you can sometimes imprison our bodies but you can never imprison our anarchist beliefs that will always find fertile ground against every form of authority. Besides, our continuous attacks are the most undisputed evidence.

We live in time of war and we know that well. Real solidarity to our imprisoned comrades is one of the most powerful weapons in this social war that is unfortunately being deprived of its meaning. We must make it clear that the anarchist action and assault can only be realized through solidarity. Our solidarity is not a result of mercy or philanthropic, leftist sentimentality. In the eyes of our comrades we can see ourselves, since we chose to be on the field of illegality and the urban guerilla anarchist action.

And if we have losses and imprisoned comrades in this battle, the anarchist cells are like Hydra. For every arrest, new comrades will throw themselves in the battlefield, for every arrest an incendiary device will shimmer right before the ignition. And this fire will last forever… creating anarchy inside anarchy.

Because as we said at the beginning, life is giving a sick performance while the director is setting the scene, lining up everyone to his own interest; with the actors playing their part literally and the passive audience that is either watching absorbed or whistling indifferently and watching silently when bored. However in this theatre, some of us didn’t accept the predetermined parts that have been given to us, we are the ones that will sabotage the show and give to your play our own ending. Don’t say that we are few; don’t say that we don’t matter, because in the end we will win. WE ARE THE ONES WHO WILL BRING THE CURTAIN DOWN!

WE DEDICATE THESE ATTACKS OF SOLIDARITY TO THE IMPRISONED MEMBERS OF REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE POLA ROUPA AND KONSTANTINA ATHANASOPOULOU AS A RESPONSE TO THE RECENT REPRESSIVE OPERATIONS

P.S. Snitches, journalists, prosecutors don’t ever think that we have forgotten you.

WE WILL RETURN SOON

Financial Campaign to aid political prisoners in greece

(Received 30/1/17)

The state through repressive mechanisms (cops, jail guards) and judicial power (prosecutors, judges) aimed at physical and psychological extermination of political prisoners.
Prisoners and comrades however, are in a daily struggle between “special” conditions of detention, vindictive transfers, visiting denials, intimidation and persecution of relatives and friendly contacts and relatives, isolations, deprivation of rights like exit permit from prison, intent proceedings and indictments for statements of regret, self-censorship and capitulation. The ideas however are not imprisoned and solidarity is not penalized by any terror law . We build bridges to continue our common struggle by whatever means available. We support the imprisoned comrades both politically and morally through the promotion of their speech and the practical questioning of state power. For a long period some detainees and prisoners do not receive absolutely no material help and they still fight agianst the state oppression .
For these reasons, we constitute an initiative of financial support for the prisoners comrades.

Νew years eve outside of Korydallos prisons (31/12/16)

As every year, like this one we celebrated the new year outside Korydallos prison next to our imprisoned comrades.

The difference with the previous years is that we managed to stand very close to the women’s prison and to make a small demostration around the male prisons shouting slogans without the uniformed bastards to keep us at a distance from the walls of the prison.

We stand by our captive comrades.

Until all kinds of prisons collapse!

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.

Athens, Zografou: Claim of responsibility

145

In the morning of November 30 we attacked with hammers and fire the office of the security company S.C.S, located in the neighborhood of Zografou, Athens.
Private security companies plays a para-police roll, making their profits by selling fear, promoting the snitching and collaborate with the police.
For these reasons, and not only, was not difficult for us to choose them as a target. Also, with our action we showed that this company is useless and it’s services are just an ilusion as they were not even able to protect theirselves. No one of their human or mechanical means of control can stop those who have the desire to attack the existent.
With this action we want to support the call against the G-20 summit that will take place in Hamburg on 7 and 8 of July of 2017.
Even 7 and 8 of July as the previous months can be a meeting point between comrades, worldwide, and at the same time a starting point for a campaign where contribute to sharp the tensions and create new points of rupture without limits of time, or borders. We will choose how, when and where without waiting for anything or anyone. So, we think it is a good opportunity to show, through the ruptures, our own practices and speech, passing above the leftists and the good citizens who will try again to make their own carnival and they will transform the mobilization in a democratic and pacific fiesta.
We want to make clear that we will not support this call because we want “a better world”, nor more fair government, more humanitarian laws or a better state. All these reformist and christian-philanthropists values can go to hell!
We support the call because we believe that through the exchange of feelings, moments and experiences between comrades who come from different places and have different backgrounds, we can build the conditions that will make us not have to wait for the summits.
Our position is not and it wont be defensive!
War with all means!
We have war with YOUR existent!

Athens, Greece: About the conflicts of the 17th November at the Polytechnic

15128901_1195072373910607_2389407716398924327_o

We take responsibility for the participation in the conflicts of November 17th, 2016 in Athens at the Polytechnic. We are delighted for their scope, and for the 6 cops in the hospital. We are pleased that we were actively part of an anarchist insurrectionary act which showed a sufficient force for the measures and the possibilities it offers.
We were not part of the conflict in order to “celebrate the anniversary” of November 17. We were not part of the conflict to do social constituencies. We were not part of the conflict to “revive the glory” of the Polytechnic uprising. We were not part of the conflict in the hope of provoking some serious property damage. And neither were we part of the conflict to show that the so-called anarchist space has a compact dynamic and combative presence, creating the illusion of a mass “that breaks” and “sows chaos” in pre-arranged meetings with considerable operational force .

AGAINST IDLENESS
We were part of the conflict to create moments of attack and familiarity with the immediate anarchic violence, to test our reflexes to coexist with individualities we value theoretically and practically, and finally get away from experiential inaction and inertia. We were part of an insurrectionary moment, with some elementary (in terms of material costs towards the authoritative carriers) effectiveness.

AGAINST DEMOCRACY AND ITS FIESTAS
We were part of the conflict as a sacrilegious farce toward pilgrimages, the anniversary walks, the coffeehouse revival of past “Good times”, the democratic, conciliatory spirit of “struggling people” , the sanctification and symbolization of struggles -with the aim to justify obedience to our penchant for quietness and security- elevating them into something unattainable that only in the future will happen again, and of course by others. We stood across from the cops of democracy by fighting democracy itself and any authoritarian regime, and diffusing the proposal of direct action in the present.

AGAINST THE DEVALUATION OF FORMS OF WAR
We were part of the conflict, disassociated from the plebs that embraces the logic that “the mess is useless, standard, graphic and harmful to the movement.”
Firstly, indifferent is the movement and its fictitious unity to us, as we recognize the theoretical and practical gaps, and not seek consistency. Each one their own way.
Secondly, clearly the conflicts at the Polytechnic don’t constitute something original. But all that is a familiar field with the direct physical conflict with the army of the present authority, and a situation even in the least aggressive, we certainly rejoice, as we would be pleased to see banners, painting, symbolic actions, and generally any anarchist act of diffusion of our perceptions.
And thirdly, for many people the clash with cops, even with relatively safer conditions, is an acquaintance scope with others, operational coexistence and possibility of passing to direct action, something which we fully choose. Clearly we have no illusion of comradeship and common theoretical base with the people participating, being scrappy and its anthropography includes in many cases figures that are our enemies, for instance a bunch of males who honor their trousers (1), self-appointed “experts” of violence, etc. So we communicate our point of view expressing our individualities alone.

AGAINST THE COOPERATION OF THE POLYTECHNIC PROFESSORS WITH THE NAVY
We were part of the conflict to remind the professors of NTUA Dimitris Manolakos and Emmanuel Koukios that there are people who do not forget the cooperation signed on August 24, 2016 with the navy. We do not forget the promotion of research and development of surveillance and enforcement practices (thermal cameras at the border fence in Evros, immigrants underwater detection systems, drones, etc.), from NTUA and the army enthusiasts professors. We do not forget the use of the NTUA to safeguard the doctrine of “law and order” in Greece. Narks keep you eyes open.

LET’S SURGE EVERYWHERE, LET’S BECOME UPGRADED
We choose the direct action for the physical destruction against carriers of all kinds of authority. We seek to disseminate anarchist war, and for this we aim at decentralization, specifically at its “dis-exarcheia-ization”(2). To become unpredictable, to exploit the absence or reduced presence of cops on every corner of the city to attack, to cause material blow to the enemy. The rigged appointments and foreseeable actions are ok, but we prefer to move unnoticed, to upgrade our means constantly, to study the state and its mechanisms and to strike at more sensitive spots, without underestimating the value of head-on collision.
As for the cops, the “indignant” citizens, the journalistic trash that were taking photos and videos to sell to the regime media of domestication, the neighbors that their sleep was disturbed, the narks and every motherfucker that has touched a companion of ours or whatever individuality was present on the battlefield, let them be sure they do not slow the day they will receive the violence they deserve. They and their properties, their fuckin’ stores and state dungeons, in which time swings as gallows, definitely are not safe.
We have nothing to do with the world of authority, our logics are absolutely parallel, and no reconcilement can be made. Let’s organize our war. To smash the state “monopoly of violence”. To fill the gaps in the state apparatus with gasoline, bullets and gunpowder.
We welcome the comrades who kept squatted the Gini building in Athens, we welcome the brothers/sisters with whom we shared those moments, and with whom we will share even more intense. We welcome any insurrected person and every act of diffusion of our anarchist perception.

Strength to the 5 arrestees of November 15th and to the 13 of November 17th in Athens, and to all the comrades who were arrested in Greece.

Flaming signals of solidarity to the comrades in Italy prosecuted for participation in FAI/ FRI.

FORWARD FOR FIELDS OF CONFLICT AND MOMENTS OF WAR THAT WILL NUMB ANY KIND OF RULERS WITH THE POISON OF THE HERE AND NOW ANARCHIST INSURRECTION

Some insurrected minorities

(1) The comrades mean some numbskulls, part of the plebs who show unrestrained ”masculinity” as part of an ethos of the dominant social ideology in the specific geographic areas.

(2) Exarcheia is the geographic area of ”anti-authoritarianism”.

CCF-NEMESIS PROJECT [An open proposal]

181789-pirines

(Reveived 22/11/16)

”He who speaks of war, must have a plan…”

The most insidious authority is the one that carries the promise of inclusiveness. This is why we transitioned from monarchy to democracy but not freedom. ”Safety” is a word favored by democracy. The more we hear about “safety”, the more our lives and freedom regress.Worst of all, contemporary power and democracy have elicited the compromise and submission of society almost voluntarily. Democracy operates as a transparent factory that produces social relations. People submit to governmental ideology, mainstream standards and disciplined behaviours and consider that what we experience today (the economic tyranny, the extortion of wage slavery, the dictatorship of the spectacle, the technological surveillance) are the inevitable natural world order.

But even in a pervasive authority, bosses, officials, managers and proprietors will always exist. Nowadays,the visibility of people in power is particularly clear. Politicians, businessmen, ship owners, publishers, journalists, judges and police officers are the persons in authority. The Nemesis Project aims to attack those persons. The Nemesis Project is our turn to make fear move into the backyard of the enemy.

Instead of attacking impersonal symbols of justice, we think that it is very important to transpose our hostilities to the personal environment of the enemy, their homes, offices, hangouts and vehicles. We know that to authority ”nobody is irreplaceable” but we also know that a personal hit against one of them would instill fear in another 100. We create a legacy of fear for their kind and whoever becomes their replacement. It is our own minimum counterweight in balancing the terror controlled by the enemy. In balancing the terror caused by the murders of workers by their bosses, the accidental shootings by cops, the thousands of years in prison sentenced by judges, the lies by journalists, the laws and the orders by politicians. In all of these cases, the enemy has a name and an address.Attacking them proves that people in authority are not invincible. At the same time,instead of confining anarchist insurrection in incidents of occasional conflict with cops, we can make revolution a permanent component of our daily lives by discovering those that hide behind orders and decisions which govern our lives, by studying their moves and routes and by organizing our own offensive cells which will respond to the challenges of authority. We do not anticipate a social short-circuit that will lead in mass mobilizations, but we become the accelerators of history through our actions, by creating the dilemma ”with authority or with freedom”. We create spaces and eras where history is written by our own hand and does not just happen. Anarchist urban guerilla is a way of looking life straight in the eye, in order to form an authentic collective ”we”. It is the construction of an anarchist process of liberation with courage, consistency and determination. Our actions are not evaluated in relation only to the blow against the enemy but also to the possibility of changing our own lives.

The Nemesis Project is an international proposal to create a list with the names of people in authority so that we can attack them where they feel safe, on the sidelines… at their own houses. The bomb explosion at the house of District Attorney G. Tsatani was the first attack, the first act of the Nemesis Project. We share this plan with all the FAI-IRF cells and all the anarchists of action across the world, wanting to start a dialogue on the diffusion of the anarchist struggle. And we know that the best dialogue for the assessment of an action can be no other than a new action…

Through the Nemesis Project we salute allour comrades that are held captive in the cells of democracy across the world and are no longer by our side. It is especially dedicated to the members of the CCF Olga Economidou, George Polydoros, GerasimosTsakalos, Christos Tsakalos, our anarchist comrade AngelikiSpyropoulou and the Italian comrades of FAI Alfredo Cospito και Nicola Gai.
