Athens: Responsibility claim for arson barrage in solidarity with the imprisoned comrade Stella Antoniou

Solidarity banner in Amsterdam: ‘Freedom for Stella A.’

On Thursday dawn, February 23rd, we attacked various targets in five different areas of Athens:

– ATM of National Bank of Greece in Thymarakia
– ATM of Marfin bank in Palaio Faliro
– A vehicle of Free Sunday newspaper, owned by publisher Giorgos Kyrtsos, in Ilioupoli
– 4 ATMs in Ano Petralona (two of National Bank, one of Piraeus bank, one of Millennium bank)
– A branch of the Ministry of Culture in Exarchia

We dedicate these attacks to the anarchist comrade Stella Antoniou, who is incarcerated in Koridallos women’s prisons since December 4th, 2010, originally accused for participation in an unknown terrorist organization, a charge that soon became participation in the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, according to the abstract scenarios of the police anti-terror unit. The truth is that Stella is prosecuted for her consistent combative stance against the State and the Capital. She maintains this combative stance until today, inside the prison walls, actively participating in mass struggles of inmates, as well as stating her presence in daily prison life issues.

Stella faces a serious chronic health problem, which makes her immediate release and her regular monitoring by doctors imperative, something impossible to take place in the euphemistically called hospital of Koridallos prisons.

The prosecuting authorities’ position, through the repeated denials of applications for her release, shows the vindictiveness of the State against the people who still fight; against all those who neither bow their head, nor accept the oppression and misery imposed by the dominant Power.

In our times, when classist inequalities become clear in practice, affecting more and more social strata, we project forward the class solidarity between fighters, the creation of mounds against the plans of domination, the social revolution as the only way out towards the liberation of our lives.

We send our militant greetings to anarchist Stella Antoniou and demand her immediate release.
