October 8th, 2012: Konstantinos Papadopoulos and comrades Stella Antoniou, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Alexandros Mitroussias and Kostas Sakkas attended the first hearing of the new CCF case trial. At the start of the process, the nine members of the R.O. CCF and anarchist Theofilos Mavropoulos left the courtroom and were taken back to prison cells, after CCF member Olga Ekonomidou insisted on reading out loud the following statement in the courtroom of Koridallos women’s prisons.
“Before your court-martial begins, I will make a statement on behalf of the members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
We are captives of the Greek State and make it clear that we do not recognize any authority, let alone the judiciary, and naturally none of your laws. The fact that we are prisoners of war does not mean that we have surrendered, nor we regret anything.
We remain proud of our organization. Every action of the Conspiracy, each word that we wrote in our communiqués is and will always be an unrepentant piece of each of us.
CCF is path of the new urban guerrilla warfare, is part of an expanded global conspiracy against institutions and society’s moral that enslaves the human for centuries.
Our captivity does not halt our cause or the new urban guerrilla, which is transformed daily into practice, and lastly will never halt our incessant struggle for freedom, that you, puppets of the system, are unable to stop.
CCF is the nine of us, who have taken responsibility for it, and no other defendant has any relation to the organization and neither of them could ever have.
We still go along with our comrade Theofilos Mavropoulos in the incessant course towards an everlasting anarchist insurgency without looking back.
We abandon inhibitions and excuses, and throw ourselves into the fire of action for now and forever. From where we stand, we send our warmest greetings to Yannis Michailidis and Dimitris Politis, wanted for CCF. Let the fire of new anarchy cover your tracks forever. Until we meet at the point of no return. We also send strength and solidarity to the insurrectionary comrades that are prosecuted by the Italian authorities, as well as to our FAI comrades at large.
Finally, with our thoughts and hearts, we stand close to anarchist comrade Mario López, arrested in Mexico after being injured in the explosion of a homemade incendiary device he was carrying, and anarchist Felicity Ryder, who chose the clandestine paths and is prosecuted for the same case.
Long live Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI)
