On Friday 17/9/21, at 1pm on the 6th floor of the Loukareos Street Courts, the second degree trial of comrade Marios Seisidis continues for the armed robbery of the National Bank of Solonos Street in 2006.
During the perpetrators’ escape, the state dogs did not hesitate to shoot into the crowd, resulting in the wounding and arrest of anarchist Yannis Dimitrakis. Subsequently, Marios and Simos Seisidis and Grigoris Tsironis were declared wanted and later put on bail for 600.000 €. After almost a decade on the run the 3 wanted comrades were arrested in different places and times. Simos lost his leg to a cop’s bullet in Tauros area in Athens, Grigoris was arrested in Volos during a raid by the SWAT team (during which Spyros Darvilas took his own life, free) and Marios in the Peloponnese together with Kostas Sakkas. Whereas Simos and Grigoris were acquitted in this case, Marios was sentenced in the first instance to 36 years’ imprisonment as the state mafia had already been irreparably damaged by the acquittals of the other two on the run. With this trial the circle of this case is closing and we must defend the legacy of resistance and solidarity that he leaves, as well as the comrade himself so that he does not remain at the mercy of state repression. Solidarity is our weapon.
