Prisoner support letter-writing night and hot prisoners

Prisoner support letter-writing night and hot prisoners

Bristol ABC prisoner support group returns this month to Kebele social centre for November’s public letters to prisoners night.
Wednesday 10 November, from 7 to 9pm at 14 Robertson Rd, Bristol BS5 6JY. Hot drinks available, bring snacks to share please.
Once again we will have lists of prisoners here and abroad who welcome support. We will provide paper, cards and envelopes. We ask you to provide the letter writing muscle, along with donations for stamps if you can. This is an informal event with lots of time for questions and discussion about what we do and why. To find out more in advance have a look at our blog and especially the article Why Prisoner Support
This month some of the prisoners we think need additional support include:
The recently sentenced animal rights prisoners known as the SHAC6, and not least Nicole Vosper who has deep roots in the south west (and may be out on parole soonish after 18 months on remand).
Jock Palfreeman in Bulgaria has another day in court for his appeal on 11 November. It probably wont be his last court day, and the judgement will take the judge 2 to 3 months to deliver, so keep pressure on the Bulgarian state - info here.
The elderly and sick anarchist Alfredo Bonanno, along with Christos Stratigopoulos, go to trial in Greece on 22 November. Meanwhile despite more Greek comrades are being arrested and harassed by the repressive Greek cops and state, struggles there continue. More info here.
Lynne Stewart in the USA is a radical human rights lawayer imprisoned for allegedly helping terrorists, whose sentence has recently been increased from 2 to 10 years. Lynne is a 71 year old cancer sufferer and needs support.
Lastly Thomas Meyer-Falk in Germany, having survived 11 years in isolation upto 2007, is demanding a parole hearing, which he should have got 3 years ago.
There are of course plenty more.

Thessaloniki (north Greece): Οccupation of the “Union of Daily Newspapers Journalists of Macedonia – Thrace” building.

On Wednesday 11.10.1910 at 11.30 am, an occupation of the ESIEMTH building (Union of Daily Newspapers Journalists of Macedonia – Thrace) took place in Salonica, in solidarity with the comrades Gerasimos Tsakalos and Panagiotis Argyrou and the 5 “wanted” persons for the “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire” case.
Banners were hanged in front of the building and the entrance and after sending several faxes, 40 people left on structured marching after 45 minutes, chanting slogans and holding banners, to the Navarino square (a central square).
The text we sent by fax to several news agencies, newspapers and channels is the following:
Worthy of your role you pimps …
1/11/2010 two more comrades arrested by the pigs of DI.AS. after the ignition of a trapped parcel in a courier office in Pangrati (central Athens) and the announcement of the existence of other parcels later on. On the same day, photos of 5 more comrades persecuted for the “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire” case, were published in all media.
And the well-known journalistic vomit starts.
We know very well what you are for years now. This does not mean that we will let any bastard to earn surplus value talking about our comrades, it does not mean that we remain silent towards the patchwork of conservatism and filthy scandalmongering that we watch taking place every night at 8 o’clock, where the TV cannibalism wears its kind and the recurring Hollywood type movie comes back on screen …
Reporters of every type, from financial analysts to physiognomists, go on an unconditional TV orgy. They deposit their deepest concerns about “where does this situation lead to” sometimes with the cordial suspense for the astray children and other times with anger against the “uncontrollable terrorists”.
Everybody has a place in this journalists’ and anti-terrorism police’ feast. From the extreme right-wing to the left and progressive tabloids and from the well-known fascist assholes -direct reporters with a glorious history from the 12th floor (anti-terrorism police floor) of police headquarters- to the versatile reporters, worthy minions of their bosses. The “TV trials” come back with all the details about the lives of the comrades, statements of relatives, neighbors, employees, witnesses and of course cops, in an attempt to create the profile of the “hard core”.
Within all this, the parastate father Makis Triantafyllopoulos (famous journalist), who has surpassed himself this time, decides to criticise the other journalistic assholes from the position of an impeccable journalist. A failed attempt to stand out of the journalistic cesspool. Comedy has its limits.
And a special mention for the local “Macedonia” (newspaper and press organization of north Greece), that has a brilliant history in sneakiness and flirting with the fascist ideas, could not stay out of this sewer. The failed attempt in sarcasm of the revolutionaries do not ridicule our comrades, but those who invented it.
And one more thing.
We know that “you’re not all the same.” For every 9 bastards journalists, minions of their boss, there may be one who wants to do real research and to highlight some interesting issues. But as this one chooses to work and be part of the corporate media, the only thing he achieves is to reproduce the dominant propaganda “on democratic pluralism” and “respect of the other opinion.” Every hip documentary in SKY (Greek TV channel) or any “subversive” article in Eleftherotypia (popular newspaper) simply legitimize the other 49 pages and 23 hours of brainwashing, filthiness and spectacle.

Statement by anarchist station Radio Revolt concerning the attack on its wagon saloniki greece

 Translation from Athens IMC On Tuesday November 9th at around 11pm, while there were five comrades in the wagon of radio revolt, around 20-25 para-statists and fascists attacked it. Armed with clubs, hammers, sticks and knives they threw three molotovs inside the wagon and tried to block its door. The response of the comrades was instant – they grabbed sticks, managed to get out of the wagon and responded to the attack. The fascists chanted their totally unimaginative slogans and threw stones, but the comrades nevertheless managed to push them back, chasing them to their motorcycles. However, the fire had already gone out of control while the coordinated attempts of all who arrived resulted in limiting the damage to the wagon, the inside of which was destroyed. Six fire brigade cars arrived in the area, which (according to the fire brigade unit) were blocked from the police, who demanded that they accompany the cars inside the campus – something we could not by any means accept [university campuses are protected by academic asylum in Greece –trans]. At the same time, while the electricity remained connected therefore posing an additional threat to the gathered people who were putting off the fire, the water supply was cut off (twice) by the university administration. We obviously did not await the intervention of any state mechanism to “save” us and we believe that the attack was organised by this very mechanism. More specifically, from the early evening the streets around the university were full of cops with at least three riot police units outside the (closed) EXPO building, motorcycle cops hovering around in groups of fours at a nearby square and the confirmed presence of helmet-wearing individuals (possibly undercovers) outside the nearby sports stadium, shortly after the attack. As it has been repeatedly proven, the fascists do not have the capacity to conduct such an attack without assistance. Typical examples of this are the racist pogroms under cop protection in Ayios Panteleimonas in Athens, the taxi-riot police unit at Larissis Station and the attack against the haunt in the West, in Athens again, where one riot police unit arrived only seconds after the fascists had left. Likewise, the fascists’ motorcycles cut through the police cordons with no hassle whatsoever. We easily see this is another attack in the generalised attack against radical parts of society. An attack which is only to be expected in the present socio-economic condition in Greece. We live through a period in which a government is desperately trying to keep a country float, where it condemns to impoverishment the largest part of the population, resulting in new poles of radical action springing up while the existing ones strengthen. In this period the panicked system choses to escalate its repression using all means at its disposal. Its aim is the prevention of any resistance to the new measures, the state or the system from any individual, collective or group. It tries to defend against this generalised discontent across society. All these comprise the full picture of the events of Tuesday. Fascists make a murderous attack against a self-organised anarchist radio with the backing of the police, which plays the double role of safeguarding their escape and blocking an intervention by the fire brigade. The university authorities “rest their case”, while the systemic Mass Media talk of “disturbances” at the university and about clashes between gangs, hiding away and distorting the true events. The wagon has been burned down but Radio Revolt continues. Twenty minutes after the disruption of the show, the station returned on both the internet and FM and of course the flow of the station continues as normal and aggresively. The wagon will operate again to aid the station project. All perpetrators of Tuesday’s attack will find us against them, ready to respond to any attempt of silencing of counter-information, of the support of subversive action and the dissemination of subversive ideas. Additionally, each attack of this kind crouches us together as proven by the material solidarity we immediately received. 

They don’t deter us, they enrage us! Cops, TV, neonazis – all scum work together. You will find us against you.

Solidarity attack in xanthi north Greece
Yesterday, a few hours after the fascist attack on Radio Revolt (Thessaloniki), we expressed our solidarity
by destroying 2 cash points outside the main branch of the Bank of Greece,
Xanthi, North Greece.
Our solidarity does not stop here.
we are going to destroy you one by one.
the ungrateful children
On Tuesday night at 23.00 the occupied train carriage hosting the anarchist radio station Radio Revolt at the Aristotle University in Thessaloniki was attacked by fascists, who set it on fire. The few comrades who were in the carriage at the time of the attack are well in their health. According to reports on Athens IMC, fire brigade units in the area refused to intervene. The carriage has been destroyed completely. 

Two anarchists charged with participation in Revolutionary Struggle are released on bail

M. Mperaha and N. Malapanis are two latest people who were charged with participation to the group Revolutionary Struggle. After appearing before the prosecutor general, the two were not ordered in pre-trial detention; instead, they have been given bail conditions (ban from exiting the country, sign-off at the police station monthly). In a justice system where even blatantly innocent people are ordered in pre-trial detention regularly, ordering bail conditions instead is a clear, if indirect, admission of lack of evidence on the side of the public prosecutor. 
Our solidarity freedom to all anarchists comrades in prison!!

NO PERSECUTION to M.Beraha and N.Malapanis
accused of participation in Revolutionary Struggle

LETTER FROM H. Hadjimichelakis, P. Masouras, K.Karakatsani,

7 november

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me

Shall be my brother;

William Shakespeare
Henry V

At midday of 1st of November G.Tsakalos and P. Argyroy were arrested in the Pagrati area. The two arrested appear to have organised the sending of letter-bombs to the embassies of Mexico, Chile, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Bulgaria and France as well as to Nicholas Sarkozy, Silvio Berlusconi, Angela Merkel, the European Court, Europol and Eurojust.
This was followed by the well-known panel of TV-judges, once again in the front line of the propaganda war against arrested rebels. The characterizations  "morbid minds" and  "psychopathic bloodthirsty criminals" accompanied photographs of those arrested together with the phone numbers of the anti-terrorist police for anonymous calls and safe snitching. The memories of a junta that never left, awake in modern urban democracy, prompting conscientious  - without conscience -  citizens to function as grasses and to hurry to give names of those who by any chance disown silent subjugation and stand proud and gallant against every compromise.
Those who in the era of laziness, of colourless choices,  snitching, weak-minded complicity, the meaningless consumption of intellectual and material garbage that manifests itself as happiness, propose against it factual rupture, constant remorseless war,  powerful conscience, the struggle against modern morals, critical analytical thought and radical revolutionary action.
Those who refuse to place themselves in the hands of the mob that is to blame for what modern civilization has been reduced to.
Those who refuse to have their lives determined by a bunch of ridiculous charlatans, who behind their axiomatic titles of politician, judge, public prosecutor, journalist, cop but also shipowner or building contractor only hide the adoration of mammon (a term, derived from the christian bible, used to describe material wealth or greed) and the thirst for power.
Those who still refuse to be included in the thousands of drowsy tv-infested householders who via a life drowned in loans, tolerance, decadence and indisposition find themselves in the trance of unfeasible social evolution and remain inactive and finally accomplices in the crimes of sovereignty.
Those who make the decision to follow the way of daily revolt, take their lives in their own hands, walk with honour, dignity and courage to the end, to the revolution. A revolution that passes through the choice of urban guerrilla warfare. The organized and orchestrated attack against the modern political-economic regime. A political choice of rupture and at the same time a revolutionary process of self-realization that claims the characteristics of consequence, organization, planning and naturally constant radical insurrectional activity. To questions, if finally we can possibly bear it, we answer as revolutionaries with a constant diaphanous attitude through our speech transformed into action.
The answer is addressed first of all to ourselves. It is the answer itself whose airwave throws fear to the sack. Won't there be new comrade fighters each one of whose journey will  make us feel a break in our chains? Who will come like  fellow fighters, pound mercilessly and break the bars?
Or will there not come the moment when again with comrades we will pull for the battlefield in order that our songs be again a deluge of glass…
So let's stand next to our comrades for as long as fate and time allows us.
Let's stand next to them and, clean and wild, let's take a breathe of freedom.


H. Hadjimichelakis,
P. Masouras,

Occupation of the Consulate of France in Patras Greece

On Tuesday 9 October, in the morning, a group of 30 anarchists occupied the Consulate of France in Patras with the aim to express its solidarity with the working class in France, which has taken to the streets, occupying factories, and sabotaging production and transport. Faxes were sent out from the occupied consulate to various ministries and embassies in Greece and France. Besides, a banner was hung, slogans were sprayed on the wall, and printed material was handed out.
The french state, very much like the greek state, attempt to establish a new capitalist reform which directly affects labor and welfare and, thus, the life of millions of proletarians. As anarchists, we shall contribute in any way we can to subvert the plans of power all over the world in a self-organised and anti-hierarchical way. Solidarity with all those fighting wherever this may be!
“From Greece all the way to France
Revolution is our only chance”
“In Greece and France the enemy is one
Down with the state and capitalism!”

Dannenberg, Germany - 3,000 protesters block tracks disrupting a shipment of Castor containers of nuclear waste

"A shipment of nuclear waste from France reached a storage facility in northwestern Germany on Tuesday, after police worked through the night to clear a road blockade by more-than 3,000 protesters.
For nearly four days, anti-nuclear protesters rappelled from bridges, undermined roads, and formed human shields across the shipment's route, in an attempt to slow it down.
The protesters were galvanized after German Chancellor Angela Merkel's government voted to extend the life of the country's 17 atomic power plants by an average of 12 years."

Larnaca - violent clashes between nationalists and Rainbow festival participants [CYPRUS]

Guadalajara, Mexico - bomb at the Secretariat of Guadalajara Rural Development


9/11/2010 - Mexico - Guadalajara, Jalisco - Alarm was recorded this Sunday night outside the building of the Secretariat of Rural Development, after an explosive device was detonated. The blast caused damage to the windows of the apartment and one of the walls, no pedestrian was struck in the attack.
The object consisted of three cylinders of butane gas, attached to a steel pipe filled with gunpowder, all triggered by a fuse.
The boom (similar to that of a grenade), which was noted by vigilantes, was caused by one of the containers which, with the explosion, triggered a blaze that destroyed a window and an adjacent wall. It is suspected that the attack was perpetrated by a radical environmental or anti-globalization group.
Now the Procurator of State Justice will pass to the control of the security video recordings to try to identify those responsible. The private security guard who watches the building told the SSPE State police that he just saw a man of about 30 years get out of a truck and approach the place where the bomb was detonated.

ONE MAN was stabbed and several police and members of the public were injured last night at the annual migrants’ Rainbow Festival in Larnaca when violent clashes broke out between nationalist protestors and festival-goers.cyprus.

By Jacqueline Agathocleous Published on November 6, 2010 , Cyprus Mail
ONE MAN was stabbed and several police and members of the public were injured last night at the annual migrants’ Rainbow Festival in Larnaca when violent clashes broke out between nationalist protestors and festival-goers.
Phinikoudes Beach was turned into a warzone, when marching members of three nationalist movements came into conflict with participants at the antiracism festival, and with members of migrant support group KISA, the organisers of the event. Even in their riot gear, a number of policemen sustained injuries, as did several members of the public. In the aftermath, the beach was covered with broken chairs and other debris. Eyewitness Beran Djemal told the Cyprus Mail last night that one Turkish Cypriot man – 30-year-old singer Sertunc Akdogdu who was performing at the festival – was rushed to hospital after being stabbed in the stomach, while another man had his arm broken. Djemal said after the fracas a number of Turkish Cypriots took refuge at Larnaca Police Station waiting for the violence to be over. As the newspaper went to press, incidents were ongoing.
“A music group of Turkish Cypriots who tried to go home were warned not to leave as it would be dangerous,” said Djemal. She said the injured Turkish Cypriots – and other festival-goers – asked for a police escort to the hospital because they were scared. “But the police refused to help and arrested four of the festival-goers. They did nothing to the fascists and told us not to take photographs because they said it was provocative.”
Headed by the Greek Resistance Movement, a group of protestors had been on their way to the town’s Ayios Lazaros area in a march they had arranged over a month ago to protest the government’s migrant policies. Accompanied by a strong police presence, the protestors were on their way through Phinikoudes Beach – where the Rainbow Festival was being held – and according to eye witnesses, all hell broke loose. The protestors came into conflict with members of KISA, which had decided to hold the Festival in Larnaca – instead of Limassol, as was initially planned – in a bid to hold an “anti-demonstration” to counterbalance the nationalists’ march. According to Djemal, it all started during a speech by the head of the European Commission’s Representation in Cyprus – Androulla Kaminara.
“During the speech, around 80 fascist protestors carrying Greek flags started shouting slogans against migrants,” said Djemal. “The festival-goers returned the slogans, shouting: ‘Nazis out of Cyprus’”. It was then that the scuffles broke out. “Some of the nationalists had their faces covered, one lifted up his shirt and showed a swastika tattooed on his stomach,” Djemal said. “They threw bottles at festival-goers and cut the electricity cables when a band was playing. Over the next two hours, clashes continued and the group of nationalists grew to around 150.”
Even though both sides offer contradicting accounts of how the events unfolded, the general view was that police and Larnaca Municipality had done little to avert the troubles. KISA head Doros Polycarpou said his NGO had asked the police to divert the protestors’ march so that it didn’t pass by the Rainbow Festival. “On the contrary, the police seem to have allowed them to move forward and once they reached the event, to protect ourselves, we sat in the road to block it in a peaceful way to convince the police to veer them away,” said Polycarpou. “They allowed the neo-Nazis to head into the event and start hitting people, in full view of the police. You can imagine what happened after that.”
Another eye witness who wished to remain anonymous told the Cyprus Mail: “The protestors entered the area where the festival was about to start and started throwing chairs all over the place, breaking every single one. There were children waiting in a caravan and they became very scared.” On the opposite side of the fence, the nationalist protestors claim it was they who were attacked. However, they too agree that it all could have been avoided if the correct actions were taken by the police and Larnaca mayor.
“I am a member of the public who decided to march against illegal immmigrants – not against the migrants themselves, but the policies promoted in their favour by the government,” Dr Andreas Paraxenopoulos, a member of Greek Resistance, told the Cyprus Mail last night. “We announced our march a month and a half ago to the police, and the police – along with the Larnaca mayor – oddly allowed KISA to do another anti-demonstration. It is like they wanted to make us fight.” Paraxenopoulos said the troubles started when members of KISA attempted to prevent the protestors from moving ahead with their march. “We were calm. We are just trying to exercise our right as Cypriot citizens to do a demonstration to protest something that is of concern to us.” He went on to accuse KISA members of throwing chairs at the protestors, as well as paint – something he said the public would become witness to when watching the news today. “They started approaching us, breaking chairs and throwing them at us, calling us neo-Nazis – we just want our country to remain Greek. I was personally drenched in paint. They were savage with bad intentions and if the police weren’t there, they would have slaughtered us,” Paraxenopoulos claimed. “The police and municipality are to blame; they really seem to have wanted us to fight among ourselves.” A Larnaca police spokesman said there had been a number of injuries, though the full extent of the damage will be assessed today.
Trouble started brewing last week, when KISA announced it would be cancelling the Rainbow festival in Limassol and bringing it to Larnaca last night, as an “anti-demonstration” to the planned march against migrants by the three nationalist groups. KISA called on all members of the public to join its anti-demo against the “racist and radical right-wing elements in Larnaca”. It added that the Rainbow Festival would from now on be held in Larnaca instead of Limassol – as well as Nicosia – as an antiracism message to the town. “In view of this new provocative demonstration, KISA decided to organise this year’s Rainbow Festival – apart from Nicosia – in Larnaca instead of Limassol, as was the case for the past two years,” KISA announced. “On the same day of the aforementioned event, the Rainbow organisation will send our antiracist messages against the presence and actions of the radical right-wing and racist elements in Larnaca.” Referring to KISA as a “social abscess” and “the fifth column” – defined as a group of people who clandestinely undermine a larger group, such as a nation, from within to help an external enemy – the Greek Resistance used its website to blast KISA for organising the Rainbow Festival on the same day.

Larnaca, Cyprus - Wild clashes when nationalists attack anti-racism festival

from the greek media

5 Nov 2010 - Bloody episodes in Larnaca. Violent events unfolded this afternoon on the quay in Larnaca Palm Tree Promenade, between nationalist demonstrators and people attending the annual''Rainbow''anti-racism festival and ''Cypriots and immigrants united against Crisis''organized by KISA.
First information says there are more than five wounded, one of which may be severe, as he received stab wounds. The nationalists' front, which consisted of the organization "Greek Resistance Movement", the PAK and the “Movement for the Salvation of Cyprus" marched shouting abusive slogans against immigrants and settlers, while calling "against illegal immigration, against “the Islamization of the country," and for the “immediate abolition of provocative allowances etc. of political refugees. " According to confirmed information a member of the Democratic Party, Zacharias Koula, was there on the side of the nationalists.
Around 19:30 the nationalists started a march at European Square and along the coastal road to the church of St. Lazarus, at a time when people were attending the anti-racism festival in the seaside boulevard and sidewalks and chanting slogans in support of diversity. A strong police intervention failed to prevent incidents between the two sides. A woman police officer was injured. Three migrants were beaten and a young girl received a stone to her head.
According to eyewitnesses nationalists threw stones, chairs, bottles, sticks, flares and bullets against the anti-racism festival goers, and "did not hesitate to push even young children who were playing at the festival.” An eyewitness who participated in the festival states that "the police instead of protecting us, who were now being attacked in an institutionalized attack on the festival, backed the Nationalists.

Sunday, November 7, 2010


Early hours of wednesday October 13th during my escape from the parking area of vehicles of the Public Electricity Company, following the arson of some of its cars, I found myself surrounded by cops. After that I was led, with the handcuffs behind my back, to a regular car of the greek police, waiting for the fire to extend as they said, in order to begin my transfer to (police headquarters of thessaloniki).
The moment in time of my arrest constituted also the beginning of the permanent psychological war that followed, with the known tactics of the greek police regarding the handling of such situations. The range was big. From "brotherly" advices of idiots and comments such as " you see enemies we dont" to humiliating characterizations against me and my comrades. From friendly questions in comfortable spaces with orange juice on the house, to long interrogations of a threatening character in a effort to exterminate and offend my dignity. From house raids, to warrants of arrest that aim in the targeting and penalization of my wider friend and comrade cycle. All this in the light of the new and evolved antiterrorist policy.
Right now I am imprisoned in the prisons of Avlona. I realize this position, not so much as a detainee that is persecuted for his actions, but as a prisoner of war that is in a hostage situation in the hands of the enemy. In a space of isolation, role of which is the control and marginalisation of any element that constitutes danger and threat to the regimes plans, is cut off away from the frames of legality, compromise and subjugation, disturbs the normality of social flow and does not comply to its rules. Any element that is not productive in the social web, does not apply rightly the function that has been imposed on it to practise under the dogma of order and safety, and does not contribute to the promotion and maintenance of the humiliating and degrading way of life. Finally, whoever fights, is organised, attacks and aims to the appointment of revolutionary war that comes to shake the foundations of the modern capitalistic world.
I therefore am in favour of this revolutionary war, in favour of the multiform revolutionary process and development, main supplies of which are the refusal of the existing, revolutionary conscience and the need for action, that aims to the total rupture and deconstruction of every system, relation and ethic that oppresses the free person, having already recognized and feeling ready to face the cost of my choices.
For these reasons I take the responsibility for the arson attack, in Thessaloniki on the crossroad road of M.Alexandrou and Edison street, in the parking area of vehicles of the Public Electricity Company. Wanting with this hit to revael one more hostile aspect, one more piece of the government owned mechanism.

Skouloudis Giannis
Avlona Prisons
November 5th 2010

In the early morning of October 13, a van belonging to the Public Power Corporation (DEI) was torched in downtown Thessaloniki using an incendiary device made out of camping gas canisters, gasoline, and a fuse. The vehicle was completely incinerated, but 19-year-old comrade Yiannis Skouloudis was arrested “in flagrante delicto” (“caught red-handed”). That very morning, the same police-media operation we’ve seen so many times began: Pigs raided the homes of comrades and family members, seizing computers, flash drives, and anarchist literature, while reporters celebrated the authorities’ “resounding success.” But the prosecutors and judges didn’t stop there. According to them, “there must be an organization,” so four arrest warrantsFour comrades, ranging in age from 19 to 22, went into hiding. On Friday, October 15, people assembled in solidarity in front of the courthouse where Skouloudis was being arraigned. Minor clashes broke out between comrades and police inside and outside the courthouse, with injuries on both sides (including to Skouloudis’ mother). The courthouse and a nearby police van had windows broken. On Monday, October 18, Skouloudis appeared before a judge and took responsibility for the DEI van arson, but he refused to testify about anything else. The next morning, he was transferred to the Avlona Special Detention Center for Minors, where Panayiotis Masouras is currently locked up on charges stemming from the Fire Cells Conspiracy case.


Dozens of comrades ex appropriated products from Vassilopoulos super market on Surracouseon and lambrini street and gave them out to people in the nearby local market. The action was accompanied by banners, flyers and slogans.

Dozens of comrades went in to the super market of the known chain Vassilopoulos and ex appropriated products while other comrades outside gave out flyers and blocked the road with a banner that wrote “all is stolen all belongs to us”. After that the products were given out to the people that worked and shopped in the local market next door.
About 7 minutes l after cops of the d.i.a.s. Raided the market with their baton in hand with the known macho attitude, and looked for the comrades to apply their class “justice”, eternally subjugated to the guarding of their bosses and their wealth.(that day they were in a special trip because of the case with the letterbombs.)
The whole action has not been mentioned anywhere in the media and its not impossible that the line that will be followed from now on with these actions is the cover up by silence.

Arson attack in Exarcheia, athens

A diy incendiary device made with small gas cannisters was placed by unknown persons in front of a fabric factory on Plapouta and Kallidromiou street, in exarheia area Athens.
From the fire there was damage on the entrance of the building.

Shocking video shows stab victim being repeatedly punched by police sent out to help him U.K.

This is the shocking moment police began beating a restrained man who had been stabbed in the head as he lay bleeding in a park.
Darren Grace had staggered into Liverpool's Stanley Park in the early hours of Sunday, August 1 when three officers at first came to his aid.
However footage shows that as Mr Grace seems to try to resist treatment, one officer rains down a volley of eight punches onto his injured head while a female officer puts her hand on his arm.
Five minutes later, just before 8am, both she and the other officer appear to punch Mr Grace in the head and back as he lies face down on the ground.
The 31-year-old was later charged with two counts of assaulting a police officer - charges which were eventually dropped when Crown Prosecution Service lawyers saw the tape and realised there wasn't enough evidence 'to provide a realistic prospect of a conviction'.

Brussels - Molotov cocktails against buildings of Federal Judiciary Police

BRUSSELS - Molotov cocktails were thrown against the buildings of the Judiciary Federal Police in Brussels.

BRUSSELS - Tension is rising in the neighbourhood of Anderlecht. Police fear that one small spark would be enough to provoke again riots. Last weekend, on Saturday evening, around 40 youngsters, all masked, attacked a police patrol coming back from an intervention with molotov cocktails. Two police cars were destroyed. Although the Federal Police sent in reinforcements, nobody was arrested. Next day it was calmer, but still several police patrols were attacked with stones by small groups of youngsters.
This news only came out when a journalist contacted the union of the police, whining that "the violence against the police has become a banality.

French Supermarket Carrefour blockades in Athens in solidarity with the revolt in France


At 1 o’clock this afternoon, Saturday, November 6th, approximately one hundred anarchists blockaded the front entrances of one of the largest french -owned Carrefour supermarkets, for nearly two hours, here in Athens, Greece. With large banners declaring solidarity with those revolting in France, the group prevented shoppers from entering the franchise Carrefour, while distributed flyers and texts outlining the struggle that emerged in France over two weeks, causing major economic disruptions through massive blockades and strikes, as well as rioting and sabotage. The texts were distributed inside the store and to the workers as well.  Shoppers were not allowed to enter the Carrefour and the group maintained a presence outside the doors, chanting “Solidarity is people’s weapon, make war to the war of the bosses”.In front of banners that read “Strike, Blockade, Sabotage- Resistance Everywhere!” and “Solidarity for those who revolt in France, “anarchists had conversations with passerby and potential shoppers, many of whom expressed their agreement with the action. Afterwards, the anarchists together marched through a nearby street market, chanting anti-capitalist slogans and distributing more information. There they were greeted warmly and with smiles. (In France, during the general strike, there were scattered reports about similar blockades of Carrefour supermarkets happening in order to contribute to the economic blockade there, as well as a re-appropriation action where a carrefour was looted and the products were distributed in a workers march.)
Inspired by the revolt that began to emerge in October in France, anarchists in Athens decided to make an event of solidarity while contributing, in any small way, to a disruption of French economy. This comes in the context where Greece’s socialist government is passing austerity measures and one out of three youth are unemployed while prices are soaring.  However, anarchists are not calling for a reformed capitalist economy or a more sensitive government, but a total destruction of the system, from Greece to France, and, always, through solidarity within the struggle.
