Athens: A short update about anarchist revolutionary Theofilos Mavropoulos

Two trials against the R.O. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire are currently taking place in the special courtroom of Koridallos women’s prison. Theofilos Mavropoulos is one of the accused persons in both trials underway against the same organization.

In the 1st session of the fourth CCF trial, Theofilos Mavropoulos clarified that, “as I have stated in a previous court proceeding and in older communiqués, I have stood next to the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire as an anarchist solidarian but without being a member of the Conspiracy myself…”. Then, he declared before the judges that from April 5th, 2013 he accedes to the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, claiming also his affinity with the Informal Anarchist Federation.

In other words, Theofilos Mavropoulos joins the organization on the inside. So, from now on, the R.O. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire will be recorded as having 10 imprisoned members: Haris Hadjimihelakis (who was arrested in 2009), Panagiotis Argirou and Gerasimos Tsakalos (arrested in 2010), Michalis Nikolopoulos (arrested in January 2011), Olga Ekonomidou, Giorgos Polidoros, Christos Tsakalos, Damiano Bolano and Giorgos Nikolopoulos (arrested in March 2011), as well as Theofilos Mavropoulos (arrested in May 2011).
