Anarchists in Athens “welcome” Barack Obama (Greece, 15 November 2016 Riot)

Athens: Responsibility claim for participation in street clashes on October 19th

2-1

During the night of Wednesday October 19th we took part, alongside many other groups and individualities, in the street clashes around the Polytechnic in Exarchia, that lasted for several hours with constant attacks with molotovs, stones and fireworks against antiriot police squads.

Street clashes, in any of their forms (exiting university premises through incendiary means, rioting in demonstrations, etc.), are part of the multiform anarchic attack against Power and the imposed normality. Because of their characteristics, this is one of the most effective ways to demonstrate the conflict between anarchy and the world of Power. This is why we support the diffusion of this and other forms of struggle that aim to destabilize and spread chaos until the collapse of the existent.

But we don’t want to limit ourselves in a routine of anticop hate; along with the attacks against the cops, we promote the practice of attack against the structures and symbols of domination, from the most obvious like banks and ministries, to those urban elements that serve the normal function of the metropolis: road signs, traffic lights, cameras, bus stops… as well the representations, symbols and idols of Power in the form of icons, monuments, statues…

At the same time, barricades and attacks on public transportation (buses, trolleybuses, metro… without passengers inside) are forms of interruption of the normal flow of people and commodities, and sabotage against the state and private companies that manage this flow.

All those symbols and structures represent or serve a function of the authoritarian civilization we want to destroy, so they’ll always be a target for us.

We don’t see anarchic violence as a sacrifice or as a revolutionary obligation; instead, we demystify it, we turn it into a banality, we use it in a ludic way, making it obtainable for everybody, without professionalisms or restrictions.

No act of rebellion is useless!

Riots everywhere!

Strength to the prisoners and the persecuted!

[Athens] Gesture of solidarity with the comrades in Chile, that are prosecuted for the PDI case (Contribution to the international solidarity call for 16-21 of October)

lmenmwv

We dont’ have many things to say, but only to furiously shout the battle cry of solidarity with our imprisoned comrades, and of the hate and disgust against everything attempting to oppress and trample our bodies and our desires. Let’s go out in the streets, to make the presence of our sisters/brothers visible out of the prison walls, to make the streets overflow from the noise of the anarchist actions; let’s grab space and moments from the authority and wholeheartedly turn against them. Not many things remain to us. Our love for the comrades that totally feel the custody and repression in daily basis, and also for the sisters/brothers with whom we coexist out here, is enough for us to risk everything, attempting to cause even the minimum damage to the enemy, and also to stand on our feet proud for ourselves.

BULLETS IN THE HEADS OF THE PRISON AND JUDICIAL  EMPLOYEES
MARIA PAS, MANUEL, FELIPE, NATALIA, AMARU, YOU ARE NOT ALONE
WAR AGAINST AUTHORITY IS BEING CONTINUED, AND WE OUGHT TO TAKE OUR MEASURES AND ARM OURSELVES AGAINST IT

As a response to the international solidarity call (16-21 of October) for the comrades in Chile that are prosecuted for the PDI case, we hung a banner that says:

SOLIDARITY WITH OUR COMRADES IN CHILE THAT ARE PROSECUTED
FOR INCENDIARY ATTACK TO COP STATION AT 2014
FROM GREECE TO CHILE
LET NO PRISON STAY UPRIGHT

[Athens] About the hunger strike of Alfredo Cospito and Anna Beniamino in the italian prisons

r7xnf2w

We will analyze nothing and we won’t come out with sterile and bleak fanfares. Our solidarity with our imprisoned comrades in Italy is a given fact. In any case, the complex of the ascendent relationships is totally rival to us and we are in war with all its expressions, especially with its armed forms (repression, correction). From authority and its flock we expect the worst, and we can’t treat in a different tactical way, if we want to cause even the minimum serious hurt. From our position, we perceive the hunger strike, except from means of resistance against repression, also as means of extortion and exploitation of the humanitarian mask that the states try to have in the eyes of the european cultural stage, and as this (means) we hope to have effect and cause the retreat of the enemy.

STRENGTH, OUR BROTHERS/SISTERS
WE DON’T LET OUR IMPRISONED COMRADES IN THE HANDS OF REPRESSION
ATTACK RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW TO ANY EXPRESSION OF THE AUTHORITARIAN MECHANISM

As a minimum praxis of solidarity with Alfredo and Anna, we hung a banner that says:

Alfredo, Anna, STRENGTH!
In hunger strike inside the cells, against isolation
and repression that the state imposes
NOTHING IS OVER! THE WAR IS RAGING

Greece: Protests continue in Korydallos Women’s Prison

greekprisons

On Friday Oct. 14th a delegate from the Ministry of Justice came to the women’s prison as per our request. During the meeting we discussed in depth our issues and proposed solutions in order to re-allocate the prison space and satisfy the needs of women prisoners. The main issues concern the integration of the story below our wing into the women’s prison in order to achieve decongestion as well as the necessity of an area for our yard time where we could spend time outside in humane conditions. The discussion moved within the framework of providing information without the ministry making any commitment. However, there was a mutual understanding of our fair demands and a promise to provide solutions to our problems. Until those promises become actions we decided to continue our mobilizing which basically means that the prison will remain open during midday lock down and delay evening lock down by one hour.

Athens: Conspiracy of Cells of Fire Bomd to the house of the district attorney Georgia Tsatani

181789-pirines

NEMESIS PROJECT

FIRST ACT

We claim responsibility for attacking the house of the district attorney Georgia Tsatani, in Ippokratous street in Athens city center, next to the Exarhia police department.

We knew that G. Tsatani has a police escort and that she is a guarded target, but this didn’t stand in our way to accomplish our attack. We chose a symbolic action with only material damage as a sole purpose, but the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire won’t be limited to that…

We have two reasons for choosing this particular district attorney.

The first one is that G. Tsatani is a member of the para-judicial network whose job is to take out of sight case files that impinge the interests of the business and politics mafia (with a view to profit of course). She is the judicial vanguard of her masters.

The apex of her tainted career is the Vgenopoulos case, where G. Tsatani closed the case, aiding him to be discharged of his certain conviction. Her venality by the businessman Vgenopoulos pumped up more her invisible para-judicial account. These inconspicuous courtesies of businessmen can built the villas of the judges as an exchange for their “justice”.

Another sample of this district attorney’s writing, that is being kept diligently secret from the media, is Meimarakis’ case. Georgia Tsatani is the one who took on the case file regarding the equipment and the bribes of Vagelis Meimarakis, the former minister of national defense back then and she made sure to “forget” to send these files in the parliament, with her sole purpose being to cover for him. The exchange of this conciliation was the placement of Tsatanis’ daughter and husband as minister candidates in New Democracy on Meimarakis’ presidency.

Georgia Tsatani had involvement in the Vatopedi case, making clear once again the mafia-like partnership between Church and Justice, as well as in many other famous cases that she would “chop off” in order to conceal and protect the interests of authority.

The second reason for choosing to attack the district attorney Georgia Tsatani was her participation in the judicial thralldom of our comrades’ relatives.

G. Tsatani was the one who viewed as unacceptable one of applications of release by Evi Statiri, who is the wife of Gerasimos Tsakalos, member of the C.C.F. Thus, she contributed in the anti-guerrilla campaign and in one of the most immoral extortions against anarchist revolutionaries.

The vengeful obsession of the judges against the families of our comrades is a choice that all judges involved will be asked to pay and at a great cost. We have remembrance and most of all patience, persistence and diligence…

We are dedicating this action to the imprisoned members of C.C.F Gerasimos Tsakalos, Christos Tsakalos, Giorgos Polydoros and Olga Economidou.

We are sending our solidarity to the anarchist comrade Aggeliki Spyropoulou, to all unshakeable political prisoners that lie in the cells of the Greek Democracy, as well as to the Italian comrades Alfredo Cospito, Nicola Gai and the anarchists persecuted in Italy within the undertaking “scripta manent” against F.A.I.

Soon the complete version of this proclamation will follow, as well as our initiative for “Nemesis” Project.

We will be back…
