Greece: Correspondence address of anarchist prisoner Nikos Maziotis

Sending books to inmates is banned in Diavata prison, where Nikos Maziotis is currently incarcerated. So, the comrade can only receive letters (at best some news reports, too). It is obligatory to indicate a sender address, otherwise letters are not delivered.

To write to the comrade:

Nikos Maziotis
Geniko Katastima Kratisis Thessalonikis
57008 Diavata, Thessaloniki, Greece

Greece: Comrade Nikos Maziotis transferred to Diavata prison

In the morning hours of July 26th, Nikos Maziotis was transferred from Koridallos prison (Athens) to Diavata prison, near the city of Thessaloniki. His transfer is a clearly vindictive practice by the State, especially given the fact that the comrade must undergo further medical examinations and surgeries.

Hands off anarchist Nikos Maziotis,
member of Revolutionary Struggle.

Greece: Text of compa Gustavo Quiroga González, imprisoned since the eviction of Delta squat in Thessaloniki

We hope you can help us spread the word.

On September 12th, at 6.30am, Delta occupied social centre was evicted. In the past, this building served as a university residence hall of the Alexandreio Technological Education Institute of Thessaloniki, and was occupied since 2007. During the eviction, ten of us were arrested after suffering the aggression of the law enforcement agents of the police. The cops destroyed everything they could lay their hands on (furnishings, windows, sinks, lamps, and so on) and smashed as much as possible in half an hour; half an hour of recreation for them.

We all received suspended prison sentences and three years’ probation, and appealed the ruling. Besides that, I was sentenced to eight months more than others and a fine of €3,200 for possession of forged travel documents, without being given an expert opinion to verify that allegation. Thereafter began a nightmare of oppression against me. They took me to the prison-transfer centre, into a detention ward for aliens which is practically a CIE–immigrant detention centre, where the process of my deportation began because, according to police estimates, I’m a danger to public order and security of the Greek society.

Three days after my conviction, it was evidenced by an expert opinion of the police that all of my documents are authentic. Not only did this happen but they refused to give me back my authentic and legal documents and keep me imprisoned till this day under inhumane and humiliating conditions, and now the cops put all their effort to deport me to Colombia, a country where I have no link whatsoever. I still don’t know what will happen, but I have been incarcerated in this facility (in Diavata) since September 15th, and I do not accept my expulsion to Colombia. For the time being, I’m waiting for a solution and remain behind bars.

A few words about the conditions of my detention Continue reading Greece: Text of compa Gustavo Quiroga González, imprisoned since the eviction of Delta squat in Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki: Update on the trial of anarchist Babis Tsilianidis

Comrade Babis Tsilianidis, imprisoned now in the 1st wing of Koridallos prisons, stated that he will not attend this court, in the same way he did not attend previous court proceedings, thus ‘refusing to apologize to my judges, to prosecutors of the multiform liberation struggle,’ as he explains in his text, which can be found here (in Greek).

Also, on the occasion of the trial against Babis—where he refused to be present— comrades Babis Tsilianidis, Dimitris Dimtsiadis and Sokratis Tzifkas released a joint communiqué (brochure in Greek) regarding wage labour and denial of wage labour as thematic edges of the overall anarchist revolutionary struggle.

On July 18th, in Thessaloniki, the trial was cancelled since the particular court had no jurisdiction for this case. Cops guarded the central entrance gate of the courts and did not permit solidaritarians to even step in the place.

Babis Tsilianidis has been transferred back to Koridallos prisons, in Athens, after being held one whole day in solitary confinement in Diavata prisons because he once more refused to undergo prison strip search.

The trial was scheduled for October 15th, 2012.

Greece: Solidarity calls for the R.O. CCF and anarchist Theofilos Mavropoulos – Brief update on Olga Ekonomidou

The poster reads:

On June 27th, 2012, the members of the R.O. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and anarchist Theofilos Mavropoulos will stand trial charged with ‘incitement to criminal acts’, according to the provisions of Article 184 of the Greek Penal Code.

The indictment refers to three different texts—of which one does not even belong to those implicated in this prosecution–that repeat the phrase ‘NOT 1 MILLIMETRE BACK; 9MMs IN COPS’ HEADS.’

Beyond the ferocity with which the prosecutorial authorities tackle whatever has to do with this organization, and despite the minor penal significance of the specific criminal prosecution compared to the orgy of repression in the CCF case… this particular trial is of enormous political importance as it paves the way wide open for the criminalization of expression and the oppression of freedom of speech. And it is the road to hell paved with the worst intentions.

The aforementioned Article 184 provides that ‘Whoever publicly in any manner incites or stimulates [sic] another to commit a felony or misdemeanor is punishable by imprisonment up to three years.’

Ironically or not, the Revolutionary Struggle case trial was adjourned to the same day, Wednesday, June 27th, and will take place in the courts-martial of Koridallos women’s prisons as always, almost on the other side of the city.

It must be noted that Olga Ekonomidou, one of the imprisoned members of the R.O. CCF, has been in disciplinary/solitary confinement since May 4th, 2012, in Diavata prisons (near Thessaloniki).

On June 22nd, in Athens, during a trial session of the second ‘Halandri case’ Damiano Bolano (in writing, since he didn’t attend the trial in person), Christos Tsakalos, Giorgos and Michalis Nikolopoulos once again pushed for the trial’s suspension because their comrade and sister Olga Ekonomidou was still in a solitary confinement cell, after 50 consecutive days! There, in the courts-martial of Koridallos women’s prisons, after the insistence of the ‘defendants’ it became known that the Central Committee of Prison Transfers of the ministry of Justice had recently convened to discuss the motion filed by Olga’s counsel Frangiskos Ragousis. The presiding judge himself contacted the ministry of Justice to ascertain the committee’s decision, and then announced that Olga’s request had been accepted; thus, he demanded to proceed with the trial. However, the comrades refused the presiding judge’s demand, stating that Olga’s transfer from Diavata prisons back to Eleonas–Thebes prisons wasn’t yet implemented in practice. Indeed, the second ‘Halandri case’ trial was adjourned to Friday, June 29th (updates will follow here).

Despite this prison torture, Olga Ekonomidou is to stand trial at Evelpidon courts in Athens on June 27th, next to her brothers. We will update you further on her situation.

Greece: Updates on anarchist revolutionaries Giannis Skouloudis (released from prison) and Sokratis Tzifkas

Giannis Skouloudis was released from prison on Friday afternoon, June 22nd, 2012.

The comrade had been remanded in custody in Avlona juvenile prisons since October 13th, 2010. Following the court decision on March 26th, 2012, for Giannis Skouloudis, Sokratis Tzifkas, Babis Tsilianidis, Dimitris Dimtsiadis and Dimitris Fessas regarding the case of arson on vehicles of the public electric power corporation (DEI), Skouloudis was sentenced to 5 years and 5 months imprisonment. He had already served 2/5 of his prison sentence, therefore he was due to be released from prison within days. Nevertheless, the judicial council delayed its respective decision, thus granted the comrade’s release only after three whole months had passed.

Let us remind that ‘the 4 of Vyronas’ (Tsilianidis, Dimtsiadis, Tzifkas, Fessas) are currently on remand, awaiting further trials against them.

Sokratis Tzifkas is incarcerated in Diavata prisons ever since the trial for the case of arson on DEI vehicles had begun, in March 2012. Currently, he is not allowed to receive books (literature, etc.) by post, while all letters that are sent to him—as in the case of many other prisoners—are first ‘checked’ in the police headquarters of Thessaloniki (GADTH).

For this reason, a post office box has been set up for those wishing to communicate with Sokratis Tzifkas: Postal Box/Τ.Θ. 8, Postal Code/Τ.Κ. 57300, Halastra, Thessaloniki–Greece.

WHEREVER YOU LOOK, JUST LOOK CAREFULLY:

Society’s violence is everywhere. It’s simply being transformed each time.

It becomes a bullet wedged in the body of a teenage boy, or a forest burned in the name of industrial or touristic development.

It becomes extinction of populations in the democratic expansionist wars, or concentration camp for those who escaped death.

It becomes a syringe stuck in the veins of a minor girl, or her own photograph published on various screens for the mere protection of her rapists.

It becomes chemical warfare against demonstrations, or chemical cocktail inside the brain of an incarcerated in a mental hospital.

It becomes a knife in the ribs of an immigrant, or (if you’re ‘lucky’) eight-hour intensive production at the service of bosses.

It becomes a commercial with gleaming white smiles deriving from the property of waste products, or even an urgent call for passivity and compromise from the 8pm news bulletins.

It becomes construction of factories and cities, or genetically modified foods in our bodies.

It becomes a reprimand by the teacher concerning your appearance, or a prison sentence delivered by the judge.

It becomes loneliness inside a bolted down apartment, or madness caused by working schedules crushing your time to dust and by surveillance cameras monitoring your space.

It becomes material and spiritual misery, or even cannibalism making you turn against your neighbouring person.

It becomes despair and self-destruction, or suicide at some central square.

It becomes years in prison, disciplinary penalties, beatings or solitary confinement in the case of those who had the courage—continuously over time, with their discourse and acts—to do something that many more dream of, something that many more will have the courage to do in the near future.

SO, WHATEVER YOU THINK, JUST THINK IT THROUGH:

‘Arm yourself and be violent, beautifully violent, until everything bursts. Because remember that any violent action against these promoters of inequality is completely justified by the centuries of endless violence to which they have subjected us.’ [Mauricio Morales]

Strength to anarchist revolutionary and CCF member Olga Ekonomidou, who is being held in solitary confinement in Diavata prisons since May 4th, awaiting her transfer to another prison.

Greece: Responsibility claim for sabotage of CCTV cameras in the city of Volos

During the past month, we destroyed 14 private surveillance cameras in the wider area of Volos.

CCTV cameras are the technological support of the security dogma. They are the practical implementation of the Orwellian ‘Big Brother’ society. They are intended to impose, either in an insidious and subtle way, or in an open and audacious one, the acceptance of supervision and surveillance, of law and order. And if the public-state cameras consist a power display of a State, of a system which strives to expand like canker to every sphere and field of life, the private ones (in houses and stores) are the proof that up to a certain extent the State/system has made it happen. In other words, if it is detestable, but expected that CCTV cameras are one more tool of domination, it is slimy and subservient that they’re also used by its subjects. Tolerance and indulgences—especially in times like the ones we live—offer domination a breath of life, stealing life from those who fight against Power.

Neither society, nor the People are an icon to which we bend over while lighting a candle. When they, consciously or not, play the role of the State completing its work, they should be treated in an equivalent way. Individual or collective initiatives, efforts of aggressive action for the destruction of the prevailing Nothing, will constantly emerge and spread.

And if, due to these practices, some people get scared of losing the convenient—for them—slave chains, then it must be said that the reproduction of violent authoritative normality terrorizes each day many more —or at least tries to do so.

The consolidation of oppression is, to us, a reciprocal relationship reproduced between domination and society as a whole that is imbued with authoritative behaviours. The cowardice and inertia of the mass is needed for domination to maintain exploitation. The bosses have acquired slaves and submissives who kiss their arm while they beat them with it.

What we prompt is total attack on the existent. We recognize our enemy not only in the state apparatus but also in the existing society. The boundaries between them are quite indistinct. Power has pervaded in every part of society. Domination has encamped on consciences. We are opposing the whole plexus of relationships, attitudes and formal or informal institutions expressed in every field of everyday life that actively or passively perpetuate the existent. Our offensive targets normality, voluntary serfdom, sneaking and consciences in uniform; the masters but also their submissives, selfishness and personal step up in capitalism, inertia and indifference as life stance, racism and sexist mentalities and behaviours.

Nothing more disgusting and insidious than the reputable citizen who goes after a bank robber, nothing more detested than the voluntary snitch who will dial the known phone numbers of the anti-terrorist unit having been an ‘eyewitness’ of an armed attack or a bombing conducted by a revolutionary organization, or even a suspicious move. We are filled with rage against the small-time bosses that have the look of a thousand cardinals and, in the most arrogant way, demonstrate their power on their employees; rage and disgust for the ‘honoured working class hero’ that comes back from work and takes his frustration out on his wife and children; against any kind of Greek-hearted patriots who would chase after the ‘illegal’ immigrant street vendor; against every ‘legal’ immigrant who would seek their place in the Greek petite bourgeoisie, reproducing attitudes they had also endured in the past but now unleash against immigrants ‘without papers’.

We are filled with rage and disgust for the armies of voluntary serfs…

We, on our part, have chosen to be at the camp of Revolution; at the same camp to which our imprisoned comrades, members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, are committed. It’s been nearly a year since the last arrests of the organization’s members in Nea Ionia of Volos, when we had experienced the antiterrorist operation with the assistance of local subordinate pigs, and already prosecutors and interrogators set up a series of court cases against them. Democracy retaliates, deploying judges, cops, prosecutors, prison guards, journalists against them. Facing this mob, the CCF members maintain a dignified, unsparing and proud position.

This position of theirs fills us with courage and inexhaustible desire to continue the struggle. With hunger strikes, an attempted escape, constant denial of humiliating prison searches, by carrying on dialectically the internationalization of guerrilla warfare and solidarity through the Informal Anarchist Federation/ International Revolutionary Front (FAI-IRF) project, they declare that nothing is over, and everything continues, without stepping even 1mm back.

Comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, we address to you a cordial greeting and our factual solidarity. Our solidarity to those prosecuted for the same case, to anarchist revolutionary Theofilos Mavropoulos and all who are prosecuted for their subversive action.

PS. As we write these lines, comrade and CCF member Olga Ekonomidou is being held in a solitary confinement cell with CCTV camera in Diavata prisons, after her disciplinary prison transfer and refusal to undergo the humiliating strip search.

Let’s demolish all prisons and the isolation regime enforced on our comrades.

Collaboration for sabotage and vandalism

Greece: Solidarity poster and callout for imprisoned anarchist Olga Ekonomidou

Prison abolition is what we fight for, since the prison system is only meant to isolate and exterminate people. Even by their own laws, any inmate’s isolation from the general prison population cannot exceed 10 consecutive days. But Olga has been in disciplinary/solitary confinement since May 4th, 2012, punished for defending her dignity and opposing strip searching. It must be noted that, after taking off their clothes, women are also obliged to squat so that the prison guards can look into their vaginal cavity (supposedly for anti-drug controls).

Solidarity with anarchist Olga Ekonomidou, member of the R.O. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, who is being held in solitary confinement in Diavata women’s prisons because she refused to undergo the humiliating nude strip search.

“I myself chose an active stance in a world of passivity. I chose to actively participate in a revolutionary organization. I did not follow anyone, nor was I carried away by something. I made a choice. I was present at discussions, decisions, actions, and now at pay time. I took responsibility for my acts, even though I could have taken advantage of my identity as a woman and thus receive a more favorable treatment. But how dignified would that be?
Throughout history, a woman who is engaged in revolutionary undertakings in fact manages to repeal two roles at once. On the one hand, she consciously abolishes her identity as a legal person, questioning laws and order, and on the other hand she abolishes her identity as a woman, surpassing the concept of gender roles (mom, wife, chick) that society has attributed to her.”
(from Olga’s letter in June 2011)

Greece: Letter of CCF member Olga Ekonomidou (in solitary confinement of Diavata prisons)

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

In this moment I am writing these few lines from inside isolation; 30 days of solitary confinement is the price I pay for my refusal to sell out my dignity and obey the humiliation of a full body search, which would last 5 minutes.

I remain unrepentant in my decision. I won’t give away even a second of compromise to prison guards. I will not exchange my refusals and choices with the ‘warmth’ of a standard cell and the ‘liberty’ of yard time among the general prison population.

I’m not looking to become another normal statistic of an inmate who cringes before the prison service, who serves ‘quietly’ her sentence, who trips into hallucinations induced by wacko-pills, who forces herself as an ‘older rank’ on new-coming prisoners.

During my time in prison, I’ve seen the densely populated desert of the society of prisoners. Just like when I was free, now that I am within the walls I still remain a refuser of every society which is built by demolishing the ‘ego’, imitates its false idols by abolishing the authentic, survives by following its conventions. I refuse the lonely crowd that wears as face its feints because it bears no soul to become one’s self. I remain friend, comrade and human with all women and men who keep the fire burning inside them. With those women and men who choose the dangerous paths of wolves instead of sheep pastures.

When it comes to all of us, anarchists of praxis, imprisonment is never enough ‘punishment’. For this, disciplinary penalties, transfers and solitary confinements are due to come down.

Isolation is a prison within the prison. You remain 24 hours a day locked up in a cage with a bunk bed, an in-cell toilet and the vigilant eye of a closed-circuit camera (which I finally managed to cover with a sheet…).

Inside here, your only girlfriends are your thoughts and memories. Inside here, the days and hours are eliminated, lost, dying, pushing slowly each other…

But these 30 days of solitary confinement I was not left alone. I had some odd and charming visitors by my side that passed secretly and ‘smuggled’ their way into my cell, breaking the isolation.

There were the beautiful sound of gun shots by the Olga Cell FAI/IRF against the nuclear company’s scumbag Adinolfi (sisters and brothers, I THANK you for the smile you gifted me with), the unique noise from ANFO and dynamite explosions in Ecuador, in Bolivia (strength to the arrested comrades), in Peru, the pleasant news from the captive brothers of mine Eat and Billy in Indonesia (Eat, your words in your letter gave me courage and strength), the incendiary smokes by the new Conspiracy of Cells of Fire FAI/IRF-Greece (by your will and your actions, you show that nothing is over), the chanted slogans and voices of people in solidarity who held a gathering outside Diavata prisons, where I’m kept captive; there were all these gestures of substance, the texts, the posters, the sabotages (in Volos), the arsons, which have engraved on my mind and my heart a phrase with indelible colour: ‘SOLIDARITY between anarchists of praxis is not just words’…

30 days of solitary confinement and I go on, but the she-wolf inside me doesn’t sleep, doesn’t give consent, doesn’t forgive…

Prisons are not improved; they are demolished with struggle, struggle, destruction...

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Comrade Olga Ekonomidou, member of the anarchist revolutionary organization Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, has been in solitary confinement for 25 days now in Diavata women’s prison, because she refused to undergo the—humiliating to her dignity—process of prison strip search, refusal realized by all comrades-members of CCF.

The comrade is now being held in Diavata prisons, after her disciplinary transfer from Eleonas–Thebes prisons on the grounds she attacked an inmate snitch that had been deliberately moved in the same ward. As a result, Olga is currently in a disciplinary cell of Diavata prisons, monitored by CCTV cameras 24 hours a day, which she was eventually able to cover, claiming what is only obvious with her gumption and uncompromising attitude.

Olga has been imposed three disciplinary penalties so far, including her disciplinary transfer, for which an official document was sent from Diavata prisons to the ministry of Justice that is deliberately filibustering, thereby prolonging the comrade’s confinement in a disciplinary cell. Specifically, despite having met several times since then, the Central Committee of Prison Transfers vindictively extends her stay under these circumstances.

The repressive mechanisms’ position does not surprise us one bit, since they’re trying to crack down in a targeted way any form of dignity, resistance and disobedience within their state prison cells. Nevertheless, solidarity with Olga’s struggle is our own firm position.

“Only then are the roles broken, disappeared through an active stance. I myself chose an active stance in a world of passivity. I chose to actively participate in a revolutionary organization. I did not follow anyone, nor was I carried away by something. I made a choice. I was present at discussions, decisions, actions, and now at pay time. I took responsibility for my acts, even though I could have taken advantage of my identity as a woman and thus receive a more favorable treatment. But how dignified would that be?

Olga Ekonomidou, member of the anarchist R.O. CCF [June 2011]

Even in the difficult conditions of incarceration, comrade Olga Ekonomidou continues to serve her worthiness in the most resolute and combative manner. Her refusal to undergo a body search is yet another sign of dignity, among so many others accompanying her consistent route. The State is taking revenge on her, putting her in solitary confinement, because this—pusillanimous revenge—is the only thing that professional guards of the regime’s class know how to impose against proud people, who perceive their lives as a constant journey to the land of liberalized desires. Against those comrades that follow the rough paths of total disobedience, refusing the roles of submission and choosing the decent attitude of total rebellion, the State reserves a range of policies in an attempt to curb fighting spirit… Futile are the rulers’ labors. Olga’s overall stance is not a role model within the existent, but stands as an example of battle and dignity, which factually opposes the various human models, like all those who serve and capitulate to the dominance. Therefore, only the Power and its civilization can be found in the isolation of our soul and conscience, while comrades such as Olga have rightfully earned a prominent place in our personal value code.
Olga, you’re not alone!

Thessaloniki: Responsibility claim for sabotage on ATMs in solidarity with imprisoned anarchist Rami Syrianos, who is on hunger strike since May 15th

Downtown Thessaloniki
Friday, 13.15pm

Divided into different groups of comrades, we moved synchronously in order to disrupt, even in a symbolic way, the city’s normality during rush hour, when the metropolitan factory’s machines are working nonstop. We smashed and took 3 ATMs out of service, thus sabotaging the Capital’s smooth flow.

With this action we stand on the side of anarchist Rami Syrianos, who is facing trial on Monday, May 21st, for the expropriation of ODDY’s auction and today (18/5) he is on his 4th day of hunger strike, demanding his exit from the solitary confinement and his transfer from Nigrita–Serres prisons.

The comrade has been in solitary confinement inside Nigrita prisons for almost two months, paying the price of dignity and combative stance, the highest of offenses for the correctional system.

Of course, we neither forget comrade Olga Ekonomidou, member of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, who is also being held in solitary confinement in Diavata women’s prisons for almost two weeks now, due to her dignified stance inside the prison society.
