Athens, Greece: Information about the arrest anarchist Christophoros Kortesis and the case of Leroy Merlin shopping centre in Athens

They blow winds, but will harvest hurricanes
Comrade Christoforos Kortesis has been in prison  since the 12th of July … on the charge of “robbery theft” because he attempted to remove stuff worth about 180€ from the Leroy Merlin shopping centre in Athens.
C.K. is an anarchist and has never hidden it. He was convicted by a special court on the charge of participation in the organization “Revolutionary Struggle” and jailed for 4.5 years. One of the many people who stood at his side opposing the State repression is also an anarchist comrade and employee of Leroy Merlin G.A. who stood as a political witness in the trial of C. Kortesis The political and personal relationships of the two comrades are enough for the mechanisms to develop another judge/police prosecution in pursuit of the political extermination of the two.
This kind of case should have been closed simply and directly with the return of the expropriated stuff, but continued with violent holding and police-type psychological war followed by the vengeful arrest of C. Kortesis, his lynching while making him wear a hood and his detention and finally with the prosecution of 7 fighting comrades in total.
We will not allow a new ‘special’ regime to be set up against those who are fighting, we will collectively and actively defend our people, our structures and our struggles, as well as everyone who is being targeted by the violence of the State and capital.
In Solidarity
Act for freedom now!
