Lambros Foundas gave his life fighting on the lines of the Revolutionary Struggle, an urban guerilla organization that operated alongside the exploited and oppressed.
He gave his life promoting a political project that aimed at the popular and proletarian counterattack on the conditions of modern totalitarianism, in which we live.
Our opinion as well as Lambros Foundas as members of the Revolutionary Struggle is that armed struggle is an essential tool of social-class struggle to overthrow capitalism and social revolution rather than a means to an existential affirmation of the individualistic insurrectionary experience of some.
This should be understood by all those who misuse the name of the our dead comrade in supposedly 1.“revolutionary” actions such as the arson of the Law School in athens. The actions of the Revolutionary Struggle has nothing in common with such actions and the antisocial individualistic reasoning that is behind them.
2.and 3. Unfortunately some did not understand our warning last December when parcel bombs were sent to embassies in Rome where a low ranked embassy employee was injured, and where we stressed not to carry out such so-called “politically targeted” actions using the name of our dead comrade.
Unfortunately some people forced us to revert to preserve the political memory and honour of our dead comrade. We hope this is the last time some people use in such an abusive manner the name Lambros Foundas in unworthy actions and non related to the actions of our comrade which do not honour him.
Also we should note that when actions are taken as “Commando Lambros Fountas” – a name which has been used repeatedly after the death of the comrade – because it gives the comrade the role of who acts, since his name is the name of that group which acts, it is required to have a link concerning the choices of action and the political word surrounding them and a match of the resources used.
It is of course the same when an action in honor of the comrade accompanied by the slogan “honour to Lambros Foundas.
Obviously every comrade can honour him while respecting the choices of struggle he made and the political characteristics that we believe in are well known.

1.excerpt from communique claiming responsibility for the arson attack on the athens law school:
“We watched with interest the hunger striker immigrants developing political characteristics in their action. But with even greater interest we watched the Greek state trample vested democratically rights with a relatively great ease. At least now there will be no arguments for the defense of the non-existent asylum. Thus in the more general dissatisfaction we selected to strike the building of the Law School of Athens. We into the door of the central amphitheatre that is on the first floor and placed in the interior many incendiary devices amining at the biggest possible destruction. We manufactured the mechanisms in such a way that the critical hour there are no students in the building and find themselves in a direct danger. We address a clear blackmail to democracy, that if something happens to a hunger striker we will not hesitate to strike also other buildings or even people-symbols of it.

2. (Greece) Statement of three jailed members of the organisation Revolutionary Struggle in relation to the attacks on the embassies in Rome)
“With regard to the parcel-bombs that were sent to the embassies of Chile and Switzerland in Rome on the 23/12/2010, that had as a result the injury of two employees, that was undertaken by the organisation “Informal Anarchist Federation – FAI – Revolutionary Cell Lambros Foundas”, we have to declare the following: As Revolutionary Struggle we selected always the realisation of actions that were politically aimed. They were aimed at the arrangement of the institutions and those that represented and protected them. We organised in such a way, so that injuries of persons that are not included in our political objectives is avoided and we would not allow such actions that would have that as a result. e.g the accidental wounding of an employee of an embassy, as it became in the previously mentioned attacks with the parcel-bombs. This perspective was always the basic beginning for the action of all of us, and naturally, our dead companion and member of our organisation, Lambros Foundas. For this reason, we ask do not make actions of such type in the name of our comrade.”

Rome, Italy – The boy wounded at the Chilean embassy is Cesar
We have received and are forwarding a few lines of an e-mail received in recent days:
“The Chilean boy wounded by the letter bomb is Cesar. A comrade and a friend involved with the experience of Ciclofficina Popolare (people’s bike workshop) of the Ex Lavanderia (the former laundry).
We found out today.
Suddenly, for us, the natural compassion for an injured person is no longer tempered by anonymity.
Behind this story of national importance there is a person whose name, face and voice we know.
Now Cesar is in hospital, with two fingers less and we are angry. […]”

Parcel bomb sent to the Greek Embassy in Rome. It is intercepted and defused.
“We’re striking again, and we do so in response to the appeal launched by our Greek comrades the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.”
“For this reason we’re sending this new attack to a structure that represents the Greek state and its servants, in solidarity with our comrades arrested in Athens and the Conspiracy’s project which, like ours, is based on the action and method of revolutionary violence.”
