Responsibility claim by Anarchists
Comrade Giannis Michailidis, after 11 years of suffering arrest warrants and fabricated files due to solidarity relations, multiple detentions, torture, convictions for “individual terrorism”, arbitrary deprivation of regular and educational leave, has been in preventive detention for 5 months. Against this latest method, the comrade started a hunger strike on 23/5, raising a barricade against the practice of preventive imprisonment, starting a struggle that, apart from his release, is directly aimed against the regime of exemption of combative prisoners, highlighting the necessity of the overall struggle against power.
In the midst of the presented supremacy of the state and the attack that it has unleashed against the neighborhood of Exarchia, we decided to send a signal of minimal solidarity to comrade Giannis Michailidis, by attacking the riot squad in Ch.Trikoupis street.
The attack took place in the midst of incessant and provocative patrols of the DELTA gang (special cops on bikes) in the neighborhood, who on this particular day had the audacity to harass with their presence the commemoration events for the anarchist Alexis Grigoropoulos taking place in the pedestrian street of Mesolonggiou, showing that the neighborhood remains a base, a ground of resistance and self-organization of our counter-attack against domination.
