via ASF LDN – Anarchists in Solidarity (original description in Greek):
“Night has fallen with no moon, it also got dark inside Yedi,*
and yet, one palikari is unable to fall asleep.
Who knows what he’s waiting for from evening till morning
at the narrow window that illuminates the cell…
The door opens, the door closes, but it’s double-locked with key.
What has he done, why was the fellow thrown into prison?”
* in reference to the notorious Yedi Kule prison in Thessaloniki, Greece
(The banner viewed at minute 2:46 reads: “We are all guilty”)
With those who put up strong resistance for all of us;
with those we will always stand in solidarity.
Tasos is currently in prison, after being sentenced on the basis of forged and nonexistent evidence. He was convicted just because he’s an anarchist. He was convicted because he didn’t lose his smile even when the court of first instance announced his sentence.
“I have committed the offence that encompasses all offences. In the class war, I chose to side with those who have been treated unjustly.” (Tasos Theofilou, February 2014)
“I am an anarchist communist. I cherish life as much as I love freedom. Let’s fight to tear down the prisons that bury thousands of living persons inside them. Let’s fight for the vision of social liberation. Let’s fight for the liberation of our class from the power of the Capital.” (Tasos Theofilou, September 2012)
Electric Litany covered the Apostolos Kaldaras song “Night has fallen with no moon (Nychtose choris feggari)” with its original lyrics (before the 1947 censorship) as a gesture of solidarity with anarchist communist Tasos Theofilou, imprisoned in Greece.
