First post: Tuesday, November 2, 2010

The Court of Appeal was Attended by one of two youths who were arrested yesterday in Pangrati for package bombs addressed to French President and embassies of foreign countries. The 22 year old

bomb explodes outside the Swiss embassy in Athens

A small letter  bomb exploded outside the Swiss embassy in Kolonaki, Athens a few hours ago   2 November. The bomb was in a letter. Another booby-trap was found at the Bulgarian embassy in

Psichiko, Athens; this was discovered by an embassy employee before it  exploded.

Explosion takes place in courier offices 1 November.

An explosion took place at noon in the offices of a courier company in the area of Pagrati. The explosive device was packaged in an envelope which, according to reports, was to be delivered in the Embassy of Mexico in Athens.

A female employee of the company is suffering injures to two fingers.

The first reports for the arrests mention that one of the two is a known suspect for participation in the “Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire”  and that one was found wearing a bullet-proof vest,

while both were carrying Glock type pistols.

It is also reported that two more envelops have been found. One was in the suspect’s possession, while the other was found at another courier company in the same area and was addressed to the Embassy of  the Netherlands.

>Chile – Words of Monica Caballero in solidarity with anti-authoritarian prisoners of the world

>

culmine

31/10/2010 – Political prison is a daily act for the Chilean State as for any other, in that, as the comrades living in the lands dominated by the State of Ecuador expressed well, “insensitivity to distance is also the product of the dominant culture that has drawn imaginary lines on maps, making us feel distant and different.”
We must recognise solidarity as a weapon against all States and capital, we cannot, as anti-authoritarians, fight only the authority that interferes in the place where we live, because then the enemy would win another battle.
In the world anyone who dares question the sacrosanct social peace so loved and enjoyed by citizens, is locked up. All the strange, the sick, the abnormal, the misfits already have a place reserved between huge walls where the good workers won’t see them and many cameras will observe their movements. For the inhabitants of these structures of punishment they can expect the justice of capital, supported by the universal religion of devotion to democracy and the rule of law.
Anti-authoritarian solidarity must be a constant exercise, which at times does not neglect the offensive.
Greetings to fellow prisoners for the Animal and Earth Liberation in Mexico, vegans: Abraham, Socorro, Adrián and Braulio.

A big insurgent hug to the people of the territory dominated by the Greek State; to Kostas and Nikos, currently on hunger strike. And to all those who have taken a position in the war against all forms of domination, any place on the planet.
And to the libertarian, anarchist and punk comrades, inhabitants of the territory baptised by the Power as Ecuador: your lines and great gestures came to the ears of this prisoner. I thank you from my heart!!

>Seven arrested as police clash with 'illegal rave' crowd in London

>

Seven people were arrested after an operation by police to halt a suspected illegal rave in central London descended into violence.


Police were called out to the party in a disused eight-storey building in High Holborn shortly before midnight on Saturday.
Police had to let the rave go ahead (PA) 
Officers asked the 500-strong crowd to disperse, but a number of people at the rave responded angrily and they were forced to call in back-up.
Partygoers then clashed with riot police, with bottles and bricks thrown, and buildings and cars damaged.
Police detained seven people on suspicion of public order offences before eventually deciding to let the rave continue.
Officers remained in the area to supervise the event and ensure there was no further trouble. The party was still in progress when dawn broke on Sunday morning.
Two members of the public and one police officer were taken to hospital following the violent exchanges, while a number of other officers received treatment for cuts and bruises.
 he report says the last contingent of ravers left at 4.15pm on Sunday, about 18 hours after the party started.
It said one ‘organiser’ had told the paper: “There will be a big resurgence of this sort of thing because of the economic situation. It’s mirroring what happened in the last recession.”

>Switzerland – media hype for the bomb at the embassy in Rome

>


culmine

31/10/2010 – translation from German by Marco Camenisch. Article taken from “20 Minutes”, a free newspaper of the German-speaking Switzerland, 13 or October 14, 2010, news quickly picked up by national TV teletext.

ROME / BERN. The Swiss Embassy in Rome is in turmoil: in front of the door an incendiary bomb was found. There may be left-wing extremists behind the attack.The incendiary bomb was deposited on the night of October 5 on the wall that surrounds the Swiss Embassy in Rome. Although it did not explode, it has caused great concern. The embassy immediately called the Italian police. The latter have opened an investigation. According to the spokesman of the Department for Foreign affairs, the embassy had received no warning. There is talk of a “rudimentary incendiary gimmick”. For further information, we are referred to the police of Rome. The spokesman reacted angrily to the questions of “20 Minuti” and says “There were bottles filled with a flammable liquid. Behind the attempted attack there would be left-wing extremists. On similar forums, they say they regret that the incendiary bomb did not explode. Near the embassy there would be a sign demanding the release of “Billy, Silvia Costa and Marco” – those left-wing extremists who were allegedly planning the April attack on an IBM laboratory in Rüschlikon. Two of them are Italian. Also included is Marco Camenisch, who since the late ’70s, has participated in several attacks on high voltage pylons. All four are in Swiss prisons. Although the bomb did not blow up, these actions are, according to the expert on these environments Samuel Althof of the special clinic for the prevention of extremism and violence, to be taken seriously. “Often extremists on the left use minor actions to send a message to announce a possible escalation of violence.” article from 20 Minuten http://www.20min.ch/news/schweiz/story/31367204

>Greek Police Arrest 2 After Parcel Bomb …….

>All information so far is coming in from corporate media and is therefore extremely difficult to be checked for its accuracy. More, reliable info as it comes. A courier company employee was slightly injured this morning in the neighbourhood of Pagrati, in Athens: a booby-trap bomb exploded in her hands; the letter supposedly had the embassy of Mexico in Greece as its recipient. Following the injury, police have arrested two male men aged 22 and 24, which according to the police were carrying a package with two home-made explosive mechanisms and two GLOCK-type guns. The two bombs were allegedly addressed to the Belgian Embassy in Athens and to the French president, Nikola Sarkozy. Following the arrests and further police investigation, another trapped letter was found in the offices of a different courier company in the same neighbourhood; this letter had the embassy of the Netherlands in Greece as its final recipient.

Greek police detained two men after a parcel bomb exploded at a courier company in the Athens neighborhood of Pangrati, injuring an employee.
The men, aged 22 and 24, were carrying two suspected parcel bombs addressed to the Belgian embassy in Greece and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, according to an e-mailed police statement. The suspects, identified as Greek nationals, had two pistols and ammunition. One was also wearing a bullet-proof vest and was carrying a wig, according to the statement.
Police arrested the suspects after receiving a description of a man who delivered the explosive device to the courier company in Pangrati, according to the statement.
The parcel that exploded was addressed to the Mexican embassy. The injured woman received burns on her hands and was taken to hospital.
Another parcel bomb was also detected at a separate courier company in Pangrati, addressed to the Dutch embassy. The bombs found on the suspects and at the second courier company were neutralised by a controlled explosion, police said.
No claim of responsibility has been received for the attacks. The 22 year-old suspect is wanted for participation in the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire urban guerrilla group, the police statement said.
On June 24, a security guard was killed by a parcel bomb at the country’s police ministry in Athens. The bomb was intended for the Minister of Citizen Protection.

SOLIDARITY GATHERING TO THE PERSECUTED
FOR THE REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE CASE

SOLIDAIRITY ASSEMBLY TO THE IMPRISONED FIGHTERS
NEXT MEETING 1/11/10

Letter from Maria Beraha


On monday 25th of October the special interrogator D.Mokkas sent me “CALL OF ACCUSED” to testify on monday 1st of November “for the punishable act of entering as a member in the terrorist organization named “REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE” the same call was also received by Nikos Malapanis, who happens to be our best man…
Kostas Gournas, who together with Pola Roupa and Nikos Maziotis has taken the political responsibility for participating in the Revolutionary Organization “Revolutionary Struggle” (while their co-accused V.Stathopoulos, S.Nikitopoulos, Ch.Kortesis deny participation), is my partner and father of our two 22month old children.
My partner, after being tortured in gada (greek police h/q), following his arrest, was imprisoned in Trikala prisons. Since october 9th he is on hunger strike in koridallos prisons, together with N.Maziotis (while other prisoners in solidarity deny prison food) demanding the self evident: to remain in athens where his family lives.
Today (28/10/10) he is on the 20th day on hunger strike in critical condition in the hospital with Nikos Maziotis.
A war is going on inside the “walls”, in the attempt of the state to put the imprisoned fighters in a hostage regime with all means. The attempt of extermination of my partner “roams” around the outside of the “walls” as well by trying to put the family in a suffocating psychological shackle.
The pressure that Kostas receives towards the attitude he has kept is clearly vengeful.
The terrorism applied to comrades and relatives is also vengeful.
I will not apologize to anyone for my life and why I chose Kostas as my partner and father of our children.
I will not apologize for scenarios that have been made up about me.
For the authorities, possibly and based on, solely, our political family relations we could all be “members” of “R.S.”
let there be a full stop to the persecutions that come out of these relations.
Patience has its limits…
Maria Beraha 28/10/10 

1st of November


Kostas Gournas (and with him Nikos Maziotis) is forced to go on a long hunger strike, in order to be moved to koridallos prisons, where is co-accused are imprisoned, so he can see his baby children.
And the amazing: Instead of the authorities satisfying this, as they should, the vital demand, they charge his wife Maria Beraha and his best man Nikos Malapanis without any evidence at all -with the full meaning of that phrase. If this is not blackmail vengeance and pitiness, than words have lost all meaning.
Maybe though the most worrying of all the first seen are the dozens of calls the last few days for questioning to anarchists and family friends of the accused is literally a factory of calls, which has nothing to do with the interrogative job of evidence collection for the case but is exclusively a show of power of of the repressive mechanisms, operation to scare the anarchist movement and mainly, applying the fascist authority of “collective responsibility”,for the time in the public sphere against a legal political movement as we (consider) the anarchist is.
Hands of the fighters N.Malapanis and M.Beraha
Solidarity to the hunger strikers -members of R.S., Nikos Maziotis and Kostas Gournas.
Solidarity gathering
Monday 1st of November,Appeals Court, Athens
Comrades from athens, theassoniki and comrades from inside the prisons

 Text from Nikos Malapanis concerning his call by the special appeals interrogator
30/10/10

And now solidarity is being persecuted…


On Monday 1st of November I am called to present myself before the special appeals interrogator K.Baltas, as one accused for “the punishable action of integration in a terrorist organisation
called Revolutionary Struggle”. Lately many individuals of the anarchist/antiauthoritarian movement from the wider friendship and comrade circle of those arrested, have been called as witnesses for the same case.

Since six fighters were arrested on the 10th of April, three of whom deny participation in Revolutionary Struggle, a repressive attack has begun that, based on silence, is unfolding more and more. The fact that at this moment I’m in the forefront shows, once again and more indirectly, how arbitrarily and in no way accidentally the repressive mechanisms move. In the forefront is an entire movement including those who fight or express their solidarity.
For 15 years I have belonged to the part of those that fight against the intensifying oppression and terrorizing of society. What we named the “coming treaty of totalitarianism” is seediness as a form of everyday routine and fear as a form of existence. It is what in the middle of a crisis (I.M.F., austerity measures, new antiterrorist law) they are now trying to apply to me and my comrades.
I am known to the persecutory authorities, having been arrested for my political action in the past. Part of this action was always solidarity to imprisoned fighters, because of which I have also been portrayed and targeted in the case of those arrested for Revolutionary Struggle. The message is clear. The comrades that deny the charges are in underground cells with the only evidence their political action and comradely relations, which they have never denied, with Pola Roupa, Nikos Maziotis and Kostas Gournas as well as with Lambros Foundas. The experiment is considered successful so is now being applied to more people. My prosecution, therefore, is clearly political and vengeful. It is for the awareness and conformity of those who still choose to fight, those who are ready to take the decision to fight.
Today they are clearly persecuting solidarity, comradeship, dignity. And the mechanisms smile at us ironically. With as my only weapon dignity, resistance and solidarity I walk and I will walk.
Finally, I express my solidarity to my bridesmaid and friend, mother of two children Maria Beracha, who is persecuted along with me. Also, my friendship and solidarity to Kostas Gournas and Nikos Maziotis, on hunger strike from the 9th of October in order to break the regime of isolation so that Kostas Gournas can be near his family.


In the face of these prosecutions we will come out stronger.
I know, because
SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON

Anarchy, Bank Robbery & Prison Revolt in Greece (Film showing)

Join us for a showing of two new English-language released films about the insurrectionary situation in Greece. “The Story of a Bank Robbery” is about anarchist comrade Giannis Dimitrakis’s capture and trial by the state as a part of an alleged international group of rebels financing revolutionary projects by expropriating the expropriators! “Prison World” explores the 2007 prisoners revolt in Greece sparked by the beating of a now imprisoned Giannis by screws.
7pm Sunday 31st October at The Hut, 3 Fletchers Terrace, Cambridge (off Mill Road)
There will also be info about current struggles & hopefully lively discussion!
# # # #
Athens, 16 January 2005: A bank robbery is disturbed by a zealous security guard, which leads to the capture of anarchist Giannis (John) Dimitrakis.
For the police, Giannis is a member of the gang of the “robbers in black”, suspected to have been involved in a dozen bank-robberies to fund anarchist projects. Giannis was shot and arrested during the robbery and convicted to a 25-year sentence.
At the start of November 2009, in Greece, the Ministry for Citizen Protection set a price of 600,000 euros on the heads of the rest of the gang, at the same time arguing that they are not only robbers but also members of terrorist groups.
In the morning of Monday, April 23, 2007, prisoners at the prison of Malandrino in Fokida, mainland Greece, revolted. The spark igniting the revolt was the beating of anarchist prisoner Giannis Dimitrakis as well as the vicious, violent response of the guards to the protests staged by his co-prisoners. The revolt spread to at least 11 other prisons and lasted for 4 days.

Solidarity gathering at hospital canceled,

The gathering today at the “Laiko” hospital is canceld that was called in solidarity with the two hunger strikers Kostas Gournas and Nikos Maziotis, who together with Pola Roupa have taken the political responsibility for Revolutionary Struggle. The two comrades who were transferred to the hospital because of the seriousness of their situation, demanded the exams take place without the antiterrorist cops inside the room of the hospital. The head of the hospital as well as the doctors of the pathology department of Laiko hospital denied to exam the two comrades without the cops inside the room (!!!) resulting in the two fighters denying to do the exams and were returned to koridallos prisons.
Discussion about the above tonight at 19.00 at the Polytechnic (gini) building.

>Update on Simos Seisidis situation

>


29/10/10
Ten days ago Simos put on his artificial leg (c-leg) which was bought for 37.000 euro with the contribution of the whole movement. It takes a few months until he learns how to use it perfectly.
The court case of the shooting has closed. The prosecutor was in a hurry to get rid of it… She didnt even wait for the coroners report on the amputated leg that was ordered FIVE MONTHS AGO and is delayed for an “unknown” reason (not at all unknown, we already know it…)
On the 19th and 24th of November are two trials for the same case: the seven robberies in the case of “the robbers in black”. He was sentenced for that to 7,5 years without showing up to court during the time he was outlawed. He was sentenced even for what GIANNIS DIMITRAKIS WAS FOUND INNOCENT OF. On the 19th is the trial to cancel the first trial, and on the 24th is the appeals court (if the canceling is not excepted).

>Arson attack on info shop

>

Neo-Nazis are suspected to be behind an arson attack on Berlin’s oldest info shop. On the same night fascist graffiti was sprayed on several left wing projects in the same area.


Arson Attack on M99 Infoshop in Berlin

At around 3 am on Tuesday morning (27.10.10) an arson attack was carried out on Berlin’s oldest remaining infoshop, M99 in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin. The arsonists were able to escape, despite being seen by several witnesses. A fireman at the scene commented that if neighbours had not already begun to try to extinguish the flames, or if fire services had arrived a minute later, the whole residential building would have burned down.

Luckily no one was injured, but at least one flat above the shop will be uninhabitable for some time. It is hoped that the shop will be able to open provisorily.

Fascists are suspected of the arson, as several other left-wing projects nearby were daubed with neo-Nazi graffiti on the same night, including the Red Stuff shop just around the corner.
This was not the last piece of bad news for the shop. Building inspectors will be visiting today and as the new owners of the building (Berlin Property GmbH) and the property managers (David) want to get the shop out, they will be hoping this will provide them with the opportuity. Both have a history of semi-legal evictions of tennents in order to sell off the apartments.
And yesterday the shop was raided by the police for the 52nd time.

Kostas Gournas, member of Revolutionary Struggle and on remand in Trikala Prison, began a hunger strike on 9 October with the ‘outrageous’ claim be transferred to Korydallos prison in order to see his 22-month-old twin children.

The vindictiveness of the State against both the defendants in the Revolutionary Struggle case and more generally those who challenge and resist bourgeois legitimacy is a given (with many examples over the years). The State also makes a point of punishing the children of fighters more. Finally, we are aware that the “legal culture” only affects those who move within the boundaries of bourgeois legality, e.g. Christoforakos of the Siemens case, etc.
From the first time the State has opted for the six comrades of the Revolutionary Struggle case to be dispersed in various jails of the country with the clear objective of making it difficult for them to have contact with their lawyers about their case, and to isolate them from their families and co-defendants.
We express our full solidarity with the hunger striker Kostas Gournas, claiming that risking one’s life is the most obvious right of any detained person in order to be close to home so as to facilitate contact with his family.
As Action for Freedom we demand that all prisoners in the case be transferred to the prison of Korydallos in order to facilitate contact with their families and with their lawyers in order to prepare for trial.
Abolish the system of quarantine imposed on Nikos Maziotis and Sarantos Nikitopoulos in the underground F Wing of Korydallos Prison
Solidarity is our weapon

IN SOLIDARITY WITH COMRADE K. GOURNAS  NIKOS MAZIOTIS ON HUNGER STRIKE! TO.
As of 9/10 we are not accepting the prison food of the prisons we are in, in solidarity to anarchist comrade Kostas Gournas who is on hunger strike.
We stand even in this symbolic way next to the comrades struggle to remain in koridallos prisons, abolish the isolation situation for his family and political environment that is essentially being imposed with his imprisonment in trikala prisons.
