COMMUNIQUE FOR THE ARRESTED COMRADES (CCF-English Translation)


Currently our three brothers, three members of our group are
incarcerated in the prisons of Greek democracy. Their absence from our side
is not rectified through the text of a proclamation. The words seem hopelessly
small and insignificant against the intensity of situations and emotions that we
share with them.
But even during these moments, when the walls and bars of the prison
rise among us, nothing has changed …
Gerasimos Tsakalos, Panagiotis Argyrou and Harris Hatzimichelakis
through the uncompromising attitude and the proclamation of responsibility,
as members of the conspiracy, give us the signal for the continuation of
hostilities. In their pride we find our pride and in their smile our smile.
Panagiotis and Gerasimos, two of the most honest and decent rebels,
during the past year and a half, had passed to the forefront of illegality,
taking a choise to keep a constantly fighting stance towards the system and
its pimps.
Harris imprisoned for a year and a half, in order to protect his wider
friendly environment from being targeted by the police (in total 17 people
were charged for participation in the conspiracy, based on many fingerprints
that were found at the home of Harris), refused at the beginning the fact that
he is a member of the group. But after the recent arrest of our 2 brothers, his
honor and pride as a rebel led him to proclaim political responsibility of
participating in the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
There are not much to say. We don’t like us talking for our brothers,
but we prefer to speak directly to them. Currently we offer them our
commitment … “No retreat … stand, do not try … we can, not beg … rob, not
extinguish … burn, do not expect … looking forward … The conspiracy will
never be arrested, because its not just a group, instead is a stream of ideas
and ideas can’t be arrested … The day isn’t yet marked on the diary. Every
month, every week, every day still remains available. One of these days will
be marked with a smile, the smile of our meeting for the rest of OUR
adventure …”
PS 1
“We are moving steadily, pitch and rhythm to the sound of the beat of
our heart. The whole formation as a body, a soul … This is for us the
revolution … ”
Since everything goes on, we claim that from the current day and on
the Revolutionary Group Conspiracy of Cells of Fire will be expressed through
two independent and equal facilities.
Of us who from now on describe ourselves as the illegal sector of the
group and a second sector, the cell of the imprisoned members of the group
(Gerasimos Tsakalos, Panos Argyros, Charis Hatzimichelakis) and every
imprisoned comrade who stay consistent with our values and our principles.
From now on, their words are our words, while their decisions
represent ourselves too. We do our best to live up to their expectations and
their confidence with which we are honored …
FOR THE CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE
FOR THE REVOLUTION
illegal sector C.C.F
I) Truce? Never and Nowhere.

“Arm yourself and become violent, pretty violent, blow up everything.
Remember
that any violent action against the promoters of inequality, it is absolutely
justified through the ages unending violence that we accept from them. Arm
and
fight against the state terrorism – burn, conspire, sabotage, and be violent,
beautifully violent, physically violent, deliberately violent. ”
Mauricio Morales (urban guerrilla who was killed in Chile)
To shout loudly with the international language of revolution. Where
the words are pronounced differently, but facing common landscapes without
masters and slaves, without the tyranny of goods and images to govern us.
Our voices become the wind to travel where mutiny conspires. From the
neighborhoods of Buenos Aires to the nights in Athens and Thessaloniki and
the cities of Chile and Mexico to the roads of France and Belgium. Let our fists
tower to the sky in a perpetual greeting between the rebels of this world and
all those who march against it. But for a “good bye” to the guerillas who “left”
early, to Lambros Foundas (member of the Revolutionary Struggle), to
Mauricio Morales and the long list of comrades who crossed early with the
cost of the difficult beauty of the armed struggle. In this journey of the fire
inside the darkness, we are not alone. We always have in our side
our imprisoned brothers, who were captured during hostilities with the enemy
and hoisted once more the honor and dignity above the fear of prison. A
greeting to the imprisoned comrades and a reminder to the guards and the
prison directors that “no decent imprisoned person is alone … ”
NOTHING LESS THAN EVERYTHING
ARMED STRUGGLE FOR THE REVOLUTION
II) The militant anarchy, the new urban guerrilla warfare, the RG
Conspiracy of Cells of Fire

In recent years, Greece has developed a condition that makes
impossible any setback. The radical anti-authoritarian tension looks as the
main expression of the internal enemy, leaving permanently consigned to the
dustbin of history the Marxist logic and left reformism. The anti-authoritarian
internal enemy despite its contradictions, weaknesses and internalization, is
present across the spectrum of insurgency. From posters and demonstrations
to the aggressive sabotage, the armed robbery, the bomb attacks and
political killings.
This is the climate of a fireborned era inside which the RG Conspiracy
of Cells of Fire is organized and strikes. After about 3 years of tenacious
action, more than 200 arson and bomb attacks we continue to believe that
our actions are just a drop in the ocean in front of the immensity of our desire
for revolution.
The conspiracy comes from a new wave of revolutionary anarchy that
has invaded dynamically in the field of conflict and social challenge. Through
the targeting of action and word of our proclamations, we find ourselves as
part of the militant anarchy of the new urban guerrilla warfare, that has
criticized the incessant armed tyranny of the “top” and the compromises of
the “bottom”.
The targets that are hitten, the car dealerships, the banks, the police
departments, the security companies, the political offices, the parliament, the
churches, the courts, the prisons, the embassies … are for us just buildings
where whatever pounds of explosives we put, they will be rebuilt from scratch
with more cameras, more security, more and more seemingly impregnable.
Alongside the propaganda of the media following or conceals some attacks
covering them with a veil of silence or when they are forced to present them
(bombs, executions), they will be depolitised by slandering them. At the
same time by using the uptake of the spectacle they are “fitted” between
the advertisements for a “new dishwashing liquid” and a reality, turning into a
neutral product of a dull information.
For this reason, our essential goal is not just the insecured doors, the
office walls and the windows of stores, but the bombing and the sabotage of
the social relationships that make them acceptable to the symbols of power.
III) The antisocial tendency and the complicity of society
Therefore we belong to the antisocial tendency of anarchy, which not
only opposes to the state but also to the society, because we find that
authority does not rely only on force and the dictates of the state’s command
posts, but also to the compromise, the acceptance and resignation of a silent
crowd, who has learn to cheer for the national successes or for his club, to
change mood with the button of the remote control, to fall in love with
windows and fake standards, who hates foreigners, caring just for itself and
close its eyes in front of the lack of authentic life.
This crowd of complacent citizens, revolts by the couch, only when the
warmth of its individual small property is threatened.
The economic crisis in Greece and its consequences are already
forming a new frame of social cannibalism. The social explosions that erupt
from the majority of workers, claim only for their own trade unions financial
demands. Often even protests (truck drivers on strike, ports blocked by
dockers etc.) cause a short circuit and social discontent among other
employees. Of course this scene changes often and those who are currently
on the road “claiming for their own tomorrow, will stand against others who
would go on strike for their own requests (eg lorry drivers against rural
blockades, citizens against public employees on strike, parents against striking
teachers, etc.). All these social protests impoverish our language and our
consciousness, claiming for a better state, a better job, better education,
better health, but never dare to affect how the issue is not simply whether we
are more or less poor than yesterday, but that we live in a way that does not
contain us. Being humiliated from the commands of every boss, our wishes
are reflected in the image of window, our disobedience is imprisoned by the
uniformed patrols, joice transforms into a product on the shiny shelves of a
supermarket, the expression loses her face behind masks of pretension,
contact is a button on the keyboard in front of cold computer monitors. All
these losses are worth something more than mere protest for a handful of
euros. They deserve our wholehearted commitment to the new urban
guerrilla warfare.
The new urban guerrilla warfare is the claim of our existence, our
alliance with the original side of life, the difficult and bad way inside a society
that has sold out any trace of conscience.
Today everyone is looking for himself, transforming his frustration into
cynicism and indifference and the only thing that matters is how he will be
accommodated at any price. The authority plays her game of “divide and
rule” well, because she has an easy opponent.
When her rival is a degenerate society where the virtual reality of the
reality shows employs her more than real life, no special attempt to divide is
needed, because the society is already divided between the free installments
of consuming joy and new mortgages of the petty-bourgeois illusions.
And life? Life is now absent from this city, now there is only the noise
of cars, the voices of everyday instructions and pictures of ads shooting at us
all day.
For we believe that class consciousness is dead and buried beneath the
foundations of modern civilization. Whoever speaks now about class war
bears the past inside his mouth. We explain ourselves not to be
misunderstood. Because obviously we do not live in the jar of pure ideology,
we know that the essence of the system is in producing social and economic
inequalities. For every rich there will always exist many poor. So when we
say that the class war is an outdated concept, we do not mean that there are
no social classes, but we believe that there is no consciousness of class. So
therefore if the oppressed and exploited of this world cannot understand their
position, to stand up and to attack the palace of “czars” who have deprived
us, we will not impersonate the role of the popular alarm.
Instead through our words and actions we do want to avoid the old
trap of revolutionary thought that insisted on approaching history in black and
white background where the state is bad and the oppressed good. We reject
the standard tables of reading the “eternal” truths and easy conclusions.
That’s the reason that our texts lack in economic analysis. This does not
mean that we do not recognize the crucial position of the economy as the
cornerstone of the system. How can we describe in economic terms the
empty eyes of a child begging at traffic lights, the people waiting at the
rations, in the accounts running and cut electricity, loans, unpaid rents, but
most importantly how not to get trapped in a humanitarian compassion
without searching for the responsibility of the inaction of those who suffer the
scourge of the economy without reacting.
Because it’s a fact that the oppression we all experience daily in our
own skin, but the difference is what everyone does about it. Other whistling
casually and changing channel with the remote control, others blame the
foreigners “who get the jobs”, others asking for more police, others are
themselves police and private security, others continue to wear party blinders,
others are studying to succeed or to feed the illusions of their parents, others
find hiding places to forget, like the consumption in the Ermou street and
Saturdays at Gazi and some few use frustration as voice and wear her as a
hood, putting together new plans of subversion inside the modern
crematoria of the metropolis.
Now the understanding has bankrupt and explanations are looking for
reason. The economy isn’t just a scientific methodology to interpret the world,
but primarily a social relationship which is based as a criterion for
distinguishing people. When during the 90’s authority could offer the promise
of a world of plenty, the current voices of protest vested their seat in
consumer smiles regardless of the fact that such happiness is always built on
the backs of the misery of other people (fall of eastern bloc, immigration, civil
wars …). Now is the turn of the western man to wrestle with the impasse of
the culture he created. We, against forgetting the social responsibilities,
practice our criticism towards not only to the economically short-circuiting of
the system but to the system itself as such, and its citizens. So Conspiracy
does not speak the language of class analysis, but the one of conscious
choice of attacking, of the armed struggle and the revolution for the total
subversion.
We don’t need a vision of massive social unrest to believe and caught
from something, because we assess ourselves and have faith in our
comrades, we also have the heavy conviction that what we live is not life.
That’s why we removed from our vocabulary the supposedly revolutionary
subject of the oppressed proletariat.
IV) Economic crisis, social polarization, our opportunity.
” Visible becomes present”

Certainly from the other hand we know that today is the season of the
biggest challenge for the rebels of this world.
The system as we already mentioned is passing through its own short-
circuiting and for the western world, the era that promises abundance is over.
The social consensus that was built around the ideal of consuming and the
promise of material bliss wears continuously with the laminated blows of the
economic crisis. The culture of easy, quick money and social advancement
gives the corresponding position in “backward” situations of economic
deprivation. This situation, both in Greece and internationally, leads and will
lead to social unrest (France, England etc). It is inevitable that inside the
neutralized, until yesterday, social body, the conditions will be developed for a
polarization towards both ends. In one case it will revive the conservative
instincts of a part of society (events at st. Panteleimon, Attica square,
participation of Chrisi Augi in the city board) will identify the “source of evil” in
the weakest, the immigrants. Stupid sayings like “they stink,” “they carry
diseases”, “they brought crime”, ” their merchandise close our shops”, “they
brought the wages down” are some of the verdicts that the new “saviors of
the nation” have already launched, to convince and gain the consensus of
several thousand of the local oppressed.
Of course the vast majority of immigrants have the corresponding
share of complicity as they breed the “Greek” standards within their
communities, which are dominated by philistines, sexism, organised crime,
racial and ethnic divisions, religious intolerance and fanaticism.
In the second case, the remaining part of the social fabric will move to
the side of social demands. A colorful and vibrant range that includes in its
lines from syndicalists of PASOK, constipated members of CPG (KKE),
moderate leftists, uncommitted, progressives, to social anarchists, hooligans
and rioters.
We are ready to live in times of high tension. The polarization and
social conflicts are inevitable.
Greece by continuing its economic downhill, will a be great theater of
conflict. The question is which side will anyone choose.
We, at this time, are away… obviously not in the conservative culvert
of fascists nor in the forehead of social demands and requests.
Our action of minority has declared our war some time ago without
fighting for better wages or better pension, but fighting for a better life for a
more meaningful and authentic sense of reality.
This does not mean that we want to taste the arrogance of an alleged
self-assurance. Away from us such posts, we simply declare our position
clearly.
Besides, we know that for us is not enough, just the academic
knowledge of suffering, but mainly the seeking of permanent intervention
against misery.
The search for experiences.
The search for a personal and collective identity.
The search for contact with other people away from any dogmatism,
pure theory, even from our own.
We are not in solidarity with the suffering of people, we are in
solidarity with thevigor with which some people do not tolerate their
suffering.
At this exact point, the point of tension and contradictions of social
polarization, we think that are actually created the first cracks in the ruling
order of things and what remains is to catch the thread of communication and
to take a step further. This whole situation, the impact of economic crisis
dismantles the facade of the western lifestyle, it triggers the margins of pre-
reactions, it develops new behaviors and self denials.We believe that there
are and there will be a new minority of people outside the context of social
conservatism and social reform who, either experiential or instinctively or
through conscience would reject in practice the whole culture and current
value without being locked into a stupid racist, nor for a claim for a better
salary.
From here that we are away, its there where we want find ourselves.
In the heart of change. All our actions and our texts are trying to be an
informal code of communication, a thin red thread that travels in the wind in
order to associate the most unpredictable and dispersed autonomous
personalities. Because we do not want to see behind the signs of the worker,
the anarchist, the poor, the immigrant, but to stare in the eyes of each one
as a distinct personality who judges and is being judged through his choises.
This is the greatest pleasure for an urban guerrilla. The connection
with different people, the communication outside the stereotypes, a gesture
of solidarity and return from a stranger. We do not like to contemplate the
reality from the arrogant mountains of a supposedly self-assurance, on the
other hand we want to diffuse into the social network conveying the message
of rebellion and eroding the pillars of stereotypes.
To be dispersed in a uncommitted current of behaviors, in the excluded
cycles of juvenile delinquency, in the challenge of the disenchanted, in the
realism of those
that lose their illusions, in the world of decent prisoners, in the hooligan, in
music subculture, in schools, in the fighting margin of the whole spectrum.
These individuals, who may not have taken part in any political
meeting, neither went to a demonstration, neither even have read the
“truths” of Marx or Bakunin, through the same everyday attitude, through
their values, through their life, they may be more anarchists than the
“insiders” anarchists, more fighters than the professional fighters.
The context of economic crisis is the most appropriate occasion to
occur and express these energetic personalities.
Move from the margins to the forefront. To claim the territory of the
original behaviors that for so many years were crushed in the society of the
respectability and the apparent release. In this way the leaders, the roles, the
small and large powers are eliminated.
Because the urban guerrillas are not some elite that keeps the super
truth. We are simply a minority which is armed with the wishes and decisions
against the blue uniforms of the torturers, against the serious suits of
tyranny, against the social peace and silence that shoots back. We
disseminate our ideas, our way of action, our desires, our “rights” and
“mistakes”.
And we often “expose” ourselves to the known value of the loss of a
death or imprisonment.
We are not demonstrating the right track, we have just chose a path
that is opened to everyone.
We leave behind us the definitive history of class war. We have no
confidence in the working- employee class who bows to the boss and wants
to become in the image and likeness of it, while simultaneously revolts for the
crumbs that deprive from its table.
Because we believe that the road to freedom and dignity is always
personal and does not fit into stereotypes and labels.
V) Anarcho-individualism, the concept of genuine collectivity
Everybody judges and being judged from his choises. That’s why we
often promote through our texts the anarcho-indivisualist conception as a
new manner of behavior and a new pattern of action. This does not mean
that we are not interested in opening dialogue with other people to
communicate what makes us proud that we still walk on this field. Moreover,
with the same fervor we expect any criticism that will trouble us and makes
us better.
But we do not expect social acceptance to do so. We do not
compromise with waiting for “mature” conditions. If society does not
understand our ideas, then the problem is with society. No longer we’ ll put
ourselves in parentheses. In a world where the law of the primacy of mass
overrides, we will hone our denials for now and forever. So we exist against
the times without becoming a part of impersonal and anonymous consensus
and compromises.
Nevertheless its the personal choices and individual initiatives that are
shaping the frame of everybody’s life. At the same time we are convinced that
the individual is the beginning of the original collective.
Through human communication and cooperation everyone finds out
more about himself and at the same time about those around him.
In our desire to face this world that oppress us with hostility, we
interact with free and autonomous individuals who seek life in all its intensity
rather than in monthly installments. This extended network of people,
fighting, discussing, doing, thinking, always looks worried and development is
the R.G. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
An illegal network of minority action between comrades, without
leaders and followers, that organizes its wishes and thoughts always on the
side of revolution. Through our actions we deny the monopoly of violence and
weapons on the part of the state.
VI) Eye for an eye.
That is why we often use the term revolutionary terrorism, considering
that against the face of terror that is exercised by the “top” with war, poverty,
accidents, police, prisons, there must be a response with a terror from the
“bottom”. And despite the fact that the guerrilla violence of an explosive
device or a political execution can not be compared with the genocide and
murder of the state, yet it’s a small shipment of terror in the enemy camp.
The fact that all these bastards who dominate our lives are bound to move in
armored cars, with a small army convoy, even during a normal exit, is the
minimum price for the world they have create to govern.
We as revolutionaries have experienced the loss of our comrades, the
captivity of our brothers in prison, the manhunt from our persecutors, and
now is time for the pain and agony to change camp. Revolutionary terrorism
contributes in its way in this direction and promotes the revolutionary cause.
VII) Actions do not speak for themselves.
But the actions are nothing if they remain orphaned and blind. Instead
they gain all their meaning when they are proclaimed.
We as Conspiracy never took the easy way of subterfuge, but we
always proclaim our events and actions.
This, when we begun our action, seemed inappropriate, because, until
then, there weren’t any illegal infrastructure inside the Greek antiauthoritarian
fighting trend, that used a fixed signature and specific words (apart from few
exceptions, the Arsonists of Conscious, the Black Star …).
The main reason was the perception which still exists that “the actions
speak by themselves” and the fear of prosecution for “being member of an
armed group” in the case of an arrest.
We believe that no action speaks by itself because there is no
revolutionary sabotage without the corresponding subversive text. Especially
when inside the revolutionary current excist many different trends. For us
“the theorists who don’t live a life of insurrection say nothing worth to say
and activists who refuse to think critically do nothing worth to be done.”
With regard to criminal costs, this is a natural consequence of which
each must be prepared before declaring war on the system, otherwise he
should not even make the effort to cross the path of revolutionary action. The
legal consequences cannot make “allowances” to the revolutionary speaking.
The unity of words and actions come always first despite the legal
implications, as the quintessence of our own struggle. This is what we always
did as Conspiracy and we will continue to do.
VIII) The day that not everybody returned…
On the first day of November two of our brothers, Gerasimos Tsakalos
and Panagiotis Argyrou, were encircled by the DIAS police team and were
arrested at the center of Athens. They found on them two pistols, five
magazines, one bulletproof vest and two incendiary packages to be sent to
the Belgian embassy and the French president Nicolas Sarkozy.
It followed the delivery of other two packages destined for the Mexican
embassy and Eurojust.
It all begun when the Swift Mail’s courier employee, wanting to satisfy
her curiosity and detectivism for the sake of security of an ambassador,
opened the package in excess of her work, with a resulting inflammation,
without being injured.
The rest is known from the news and newspapers. This subject phoned
the police and the cops blocked the entire area with dozens of forces,
capturing our comrades.
Certainly the act of the particular employee is exposed to the common
sense and be sure that her name wont be easily forgotten by the new urban
guerrilla warfare.
As far as it concerns the action itself, our foresight that the
correspondence of the aristocracy of the ambassadors isn’t opened by
themselves but from the clerical staff of the embassy, make us not to use the
strong explosive that we store, but only a minimum quantity of improvised
black gunpowder to deliver the message without injuring a man.
Having even counted that the packages will remain for a day at the
warehouse of the companies and that they would be delivered the next day
by the workers of the courier, we care to completely secure the assembly and
the mechanism would be activated only when it was opened.
As mentioned in a previous proclamation, the action of an urban
guerrilla and the violence that he uses, is directed solely against the thugs
who dominate our lives and against the loyal vassals who embrace the
religion of the legal Order. But when masters can persuade the slaves that
they live in freedom, then the meanings face the loss of consciousness.
Often we are faced with the contradictory finding that some employees
coincide with the interests of the economic elites. The mania for security and
social snitching, that several workers are showing, maintain the life of the
system.
So, in a society where “heroes” citizens protect the money of a bank
from bandits, others are still seeking for more police, some people respect the
laws of the corrupted rulers, many snitch anything that deviates from the
subservient regularity and some claim the exemplary punishment of the
rebels, we stand against them, ready to fight to the bitter end.
Because memory is no rubbish and blood is not water …
IX) Campaign of solidarity and support to guerrilla groups and
captive rebels.
“Our day will come, our day will come…”
Bobby Sands

Today it is imperative the start of a new phase in the development of
revolutionary thought and action. A qualitative jump that will bring common
choices, which are hundreds of miles away, one step closer. Our aim is the
constitution of an aformalistic antiauthoritarian international network of
guerrilla groups and autonomous individualities.
The creation of a network in which the comrades and the groups that
will participate, will exchange experiences from the total spectrum of the
struggle, from the spontaneous anarchism, from the armed struggle, from
the political anonymity, from the rebellious trend. The starting line of an
extended circle of communication, discussion, perception and reflection. The
effort to create a form that will co-ordinate subversive action and attacks in
international level. The operation of an experimental laboratory of schemes
by exchanging material and technical knowledge in the field of sabotage. The
organization of a collective of solidarity to imprisoned comrades and of a
substructure of support to wanted rebels. The challenge of a bet that its
achievement is more beautiful than the bet itself… In any case it is something
that we wish to do. Within the next few months our wish will be sealed with
the presentation of a completed international call. At the present moment we
send our greetings to friends, to the known and to the unknown comrades
that are organized and act from their individuality and the guerrilla groups.
At the same time we should speak for our losses, for our brothers that
are no longer next to us. The issue of the rebel prisoners (among them and
the bright minority of “penal prisoners” who deliver courses of dignity and
honor with their attitude and their fights) remains a familiar aspect of the
radical fight. Often the interest for the “people inside the walls” is increased
when the hearing of a case begins.
Meanwhile, the journalistic articles are written with spectacular titles
as “the arrest of an organization” or “the armed clash between terrorists and
police forces”. However we consider that we must speak again for our jailed
brothers, knowing that they are not just simple names in the titles of news
and newspapers. All these comrades have an individual life, a personal way
of thinking and a unique face. At the past we spoke for some of our comrades
by referring just their names while for others we never learned them. We
fragmentarily mentioned them at the end of a proclamation and in a moto
that we shouted in a riot. Therefore, we lost the memory, the connection, the
history.
At the same time we are careful, because we want to avoid to present
our imprisoned comrades as victims or as heroes. In contrast, we wish to
create an essential communication with these persons, to give them the
chance to speak, to exchange experiences and most important to make a
huge effort in order to release them and stand again in the first lines of the
fight for the revolution. Next to the initiatives of solidarity that already exists
from revolutionaries and anarchists, we also put our own footprint in the case
of the release of prisoners and the destruction of prisons. In a first attempt to
this direction we include the campaign of international solidarity that we
performed.
The friendship that connects us with some, but also the deep
appreciation we feel for the most that we had not the honor to meet
personally, would remain unsatisfied watching these histories be forgotten in
lists of magisterial documents and files of newspapers. The different
perceptions, certain personal characteristic and the ignorance of certain
elements because of kilometric distances are not capable to disprove the
obvious. These persons did not wait for the action to find them in the couch
of their houses, but they requested it by themselves in the path of revolution,
where everything is possible.
Therefore we send our fellow greetings and a sign of cooperation to
the rebellious comrades of the informal anarchist federation of Italy (FAI
informale). FAI is an open decentralized network of individuals and teams that
uses direct action and sabotage against the state and the capital. FAI through
the attacks (placement and sending of explosive mechanisms in politicians,
carabinieri barracks, courts, etc) sends a clear message for the perceptions
and the practice of rebellious anarchists. At the same time FAI has suported
to the fights of prisoners for the abolition of the special condition FIES of
Spanish prisons, expressing its solidarity with attacks on Spanish territory
(sending two explosive mechanisms in Spanish courts in Valencia). FAI has
also attacked Greek targets such as the Greek office of tourism and the Greek
embassy in Madrid, in order to show solidarity to N. Maziotis in 1999 ( today
he is imprisoned having proudly taken the responsibility with his comrades
K.Gournas and P. Roypa for participating in the organization
REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE). In its proclamations FAI promotes the
rebellious anarchism and criticize the old organizations and their non
dangerous theoretical revolutionary rhetoric. At the same time FAI had
already released an Open Letter (to the anarchist movement) that promoted
the international organization and solidarity. A bet that always remains
current and essential…
We also greet the anarchic groups Praxedis G.Guerrero Autonomous
Cells for immediate Revolution and Insurrectionalist Earth Liberetion Front
that attacks in the territory of Mexican state. The comrades there, use
homemade incendiary and explosive mechanisms hitting mainly police targets
(police and prison vans, etc). In its proclamation for a double hit at a police
van and a digging machine Insurrectionalist ELF mentions: “We will not
defend the interests of the “working class” or the privileged class, because we
are not classists. We are anti-anthropocentrists and individualists. We
struggle against this society, spreading the anti-social war through our
actions. We defend the Earth because we believe in respecting her
completely. We defend neither rich nor poor. We fight against civilization,
for Earth liberation and total liberation. Let this be clear! ”
At present, in the Mexican prisons, Abraham Lopez is jailed from 2009.
He is accused of sabotages and criminal organization. Some of these actions
have been undertaken by ELF. Andrian Magdaleno Gonzales who is accused
of arson attacks against banks and actions of ALF from 2010. His sentence of
imprisonment is 7 years. Finally Braulio Arturo Duran Gonzales is accused of
many incendiary attacks in banks and other targets.
We also send our greeting to the armed Argentinian comrades such as
the formation of Luciano Arruga Brigata that strikes mercilessly the structures
of the country. These armed guerrilla groups attack police stations,
expropriate weapons from the cops, do robberies taking the political
responsibility and accomplish bombing attacks against the symbols of power.
We send a big companionate embrace to Gabriel Pombo da Silva who
escaped from prisons FIES of Spanish state in 2004 with Jose Fernades
Delgado. In their attempt to pass the German borders they “met” with cops
and the result was an armed clash (case of 4 of Aachen). This moment they
are inprisoned of Germany. Gabriel was sentenced for the fight to 13 years
while he was already imprisoned from his 24, the 14 of which he was in
solitary. His comrade Jose was sentenced also to 14 years of imprisonment
for the same case. Gabriel never bowed his head in the prison. Through his
incendiary and subversive texts declares that he will always be in the side of
the aggression. “We are some who believe that the moment has come to
attack and destroy what doesn’t serve us and to the contrary enslaves and
destroys. In contrast with the concept of the Masses, we propose that of the
Community of conscious individuals who do not search a centre… a
Community of groups and individuals “at the margin” and “against” the
project of Dominion in all its aspects: economical, technological, political,
social, architectural, etc. Comrades, let’s not waste time and energy in
discussions with those who live of words and for words, ours is Action!! “. The
comrade, because of the proud and intolerant attitude that has adopted all
these years and his fights against prisons, has been often targeted by law
enforcement authorities. The Italian authorities “visited” him considering that
he is directly connected with the rebellious organization FAI. Furthermore, he
recently had a hunger strike that became an international solidarity campaign
in which we participated by blowing up the building of the National Insurance
at Syggrou avenue.
Travelling several miles beyond we meet in Switzerland Marco
Camenisch who was arrested in 1980 for sabotages in electric pylons and
transformers and sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment. One year later he
escaped from the prison and he lived 10 years as an outlaw. He was arrested
again in 1991 during a routine check in Italy, that turned into a fight with the
cops. One cop was injured while Marco “adds” in his categories one more
sabotage action and the execution of one more police officer from an older
case.
In addition, three eco-anarchists Silvia Guerini, Luca (Billy) Bernasconi
and Constantino Ragusa are also imprisoned in Switzerland, accused of
transporting and attempting to place an explosive mechanism in the research
laboratories of nanotechnology of a big company. They were arrested in a car
in which police found a proclamation and explosives. Inside the prison they
continue to fight, recently being on hunger strike.
Crossing the Atlantic, we are transported in images of war in the
country of Chile. There the comprades Marcelo Villaroel and Freddy
Fuentevilla are in a prison of high security in Argentina accused of illegal
transport of arms. They had entered illegally the country because the Chilean
government accused them that they participated in an attack at a bank where
a cop was killed. The Argentinian state deported both of them to the state of
Chile. Marcelo had passed a lot of years in the prison as a juvenile. He began
as social fighter, while afterwards became a fighter of Lautaro Movement. He
suffered many tortures as the youngest political prisoner in Latin America.
Later he became a member of the team Camina Libre which fought for the
issues of the prisoners and against the prisons. The particular comrade is
considered by the Chilean authorities as the ancestor of the case of “bombs”
in Chile.
For “the case of bombs”, 14 persons are persecuted and they deny
the categories. The whole police operation for their arrest was exactly like a
movie. Invasions in occupations and comrades houses, live broadcasts and
political statements on the triumph of democracy.
Immediately followed a proclamation-manifesto, from groups that are
in the rear of illegality, that declared: “We planted the bombs. Our targets
were banks, embassies, financial companies, police stations, barracks,
churches, political offices, gyms of the ruling class and everything that
belongs to the historical oppressors of the workers. We do not regret, we are
proud and it is a fact that the police has not approached us. We are their
defeat.”
We express our solidarity for these groups that proudly and intolerantly
claim their actions.
Returning to the “iron” state of Germany we find Thomas Meyer-Falk
who is in prison from 1996. He was accused of a bank robbery in order to
finance political actions. The German state revenges him by keeping him for
years in solitary state. His correspondence is checked and he is incarcerated
23 hours in his cell. He declares: “…if isolation is an attack to human dignity;
spending over 7 years in isolation is definitely not easy, but my mind is stable
and the solidarity from outside jail is helpful and does me well. ”
Thomas had an aggressive attitude at the court defending his beliefs
and denying to regret. His court of appeal that held in 2007 rejected his
under terms release (he had reached the 2/3 of his sentence) considering him
dangerous.
Finally in Balkans we meet the 23 years old Jock Palfreeman who had
the courage to fight with a team of 16 neo-Nazis in Sofia (Bulgary) when he
saw them attacking to a young Roma. He used a knife to repel them, but they
attacked him. In the fight that followed he killed one fascist and wounded
anotherone. The court sentenced him to 20 years of prison.
Also in Russia and in nearby Belarus where comrades are organized
and attack, creating structures of inversion and participating in actions of
sabotage. We send them our solidarity for the prosecutions and the
imprisonments with which the Russian state revenge them.
Of course in this short journey of memory, honor and solidarity we
could not forget a person who has marked the history of guerrilla groups in
Spain as member of MIL and in France as member of Action Directe. We
speak for the fighter Jean Marc Rouillan who through his action and texts
inside and outside the walls he doesn’t grant a single inch of ground to the
enemy. We send him our respect and we will keep a phrase from him with
special meaning for the vulnerable “inner” points of the subversive circles:
“in the lounges of protest, which are full of ideological labels so big that are
dragged on the ground like rags and absorb the wake of the sewer like mops,
they always prefer the revolutionaries of other times. Or even more the
rebels of other continents, especially those located in the tropical south
American sierra. The tartuffes are disguised in order to avoid to support the
rebels who fight here, in order to avoid to risk anything, in order to avoid the
requests related to their own surrender, their eternal tepidity, their sneaky
betrayal that is dripping its daily poison.”
Terminal station the Greek territory. Many rebels anarchists and
respectable “penal prisoners” experience the “hospitality” of Greek prisons.
However, they do not bow their heads because the smoke from the fires
during the uprisings have not been forgotten. Therefore we want to greet the
rebel anarchist Giannis Skouloudis who was arrested for the arson attack
against a state vehicle of the National Electrical Company. Giannis is with the
side of the original revolutionaries who start beautiful fires at the nights in
Thessaloniki. He had the pride and the strength to claim the responsibility for
his action without showing the least sign of repentance to the investigative
authorities.
Along with Giannis police targets, for the same case, four other
comrades, D. Dimtsiadis, P. Tzifkas, D. Fessas and the M. Tsilianidis. Those
four never bargain their political beliefs, neither did they hide behind legal
tricks and rhetorical schemes. They chose to abscond, they chose the illegality
in order to remain in the first line of the battle for the revolution. Their
comrades never left them alone. They attacked the courts of Thessaloniki,
they continue the arson attacks and they performed an indignation meeting
outside of the Aulona prison where Giannis is jailed with the rebel anarchist
Panagiotis Masouras. Panagiotis is one of the few rebels that are accused for
our organization (for the same case is also accused the anarchist K.
Karakatsani who is inside the women’s prison of Elaiona). We send to
Panagiotis our greatest Friendship and our Respect.
In our “hyper siberian” journey in the prisons of democracy with
closest stations the court of appeal of the anarchist Giannis Dimitrakis (bank
robber) and the court for the case of revolutionary group Conspiracy of Cells
of Fire, possibly we did not mention many faces and names, but we never
forgot them. Therefore comrades remember, wherever we are, in Malandrino,
in Koridallos, in Aulona or in the dense darkness of illegality, in any arson or
in any demonstration our eyes gaze a common sky. And his dawn is our own
victory. Our day will come…
For all these reasons and as a minimal contribution of attack and
solidarity we claim the responsibility for the sending of 14 incendiary
packages – bombs to the following targets:
the  embassy of Belgium
the  embassy of Mexico
the  embassy of Chile
the  embassy of Germany
the  embassy of France
the  embassy of Switzerland
the  embassy of Bulgaria
the  embassy of Russia
the  German cancellor Angela Merkel
the  Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi
the  French president Nicola Sarcozy
the  European court
the  Euro-just
the  Euro-pol
Conspiracy of Cells of Fire
