On 11/11/19 at 8:40 pm, on the corner of Polytechneio and 3rd September street, and while I was waiting for a friend of mine to help me transfer with his car a couple of bags of personal things, I was immobilized, suddenly surrounded by at least 15 persons of the counter-terrorist unit, with vehicles and motorbikes, leading me in complete silence and handcuffed to GADA (Police HQ). The operation was so speedy and meticulous that another friend who had escorted me to that corner, did not realize what had happened. On the 12th floor of GADA, they made me wait for two hours on a chair facing the wall, and despite my protests that if my case is an arrest they must uncuff me so I can contact a lawyer, they continued their hooded silence.
The interrogation that followed focused on emotional questions-dilemmas towards me and their concern about the health and life of wanted anarchist D.X., as well as my relations with the comrade M.S. who is facing charges, my co-accused G.V. in the case of squat GARE’s eviction on 26/8, and with a person who is accused as a robber and member of Revolutionary Self-defense. In reality the surveillance operation for me, as they confirmed, had began a long time ago and followed me across the country. Of course the result, proved to be hot air, and their fantasies were left at the bottom of my rucksacks. I was let free around 12 midnight.
Such practices, a follow up of similar tactics during the past period, were implemented on other anarchists and fighters, meanwhile home raids are continuing, and all this is spreading to ever broader circles, with the obvious goal to terrorize and penalize comradely, friendly, personal and even professional relations. The isolation, the scapegoating, the slandering and the goebbelsian modern propaganda does not only point at selected persons, who have been targeted by the repressive mechanisms of the state and para-state, but it also aims to defame, now and in the future, any squats and movements towards freedom and resistance, which cannot be controlled or which escape the limits of bourgeois revolutionarism.
Now totalitarian repression is embedded with a new profile across the board of daily life, by those who did not hesitate to gamble with even their parents money, and to subordinate everyone to the loan sharks for the next 40 years. Now those same ones are coming back to impose by force their own law, characterizing as ‘crime’ and ‘lawlessness’ everything that does not come from them…
THE ONLY TERRORISTS ARE THE STATE, THE BOSSES AND ALL THOSE WHO ACCEPT THEM
