Attack Against the Home of the Former Director of the Elaionas Migrant Concentration Camp in Greece

Vandalism of the home of M.D. Nioutsikou, former administrator of the Elaionas migrant concentration camp

WHO IS SHE?

Maria-Dimetra Nioutsikou was appointed as the temporary administrator of the Elaionas immigration camp in order to carry out the plans of the Municipality of Athens for the closure of the camp and its conversion into a new stadium for Panathinaikos (Greek football club). This means displacing thousands of people outside the city and imprisoning them in concentration camps in the middle of nowhere. The choice of Nioutsikou to carry out Bakoyannis’ (Kostas Bakoyannis – Mayor of Athens) violent plans was no accident as she has a rich resume of repression and crushing the lives of immigrants and migrants. We do not forget when, as the administrator of the Samos camp, she tortured and psychologically and physically abused minor children who had participated in protests about the conditions in the hellhole, leading some of them to commit suicide. She also used the tactic of psychological torture in the Elaionas camp where she used documents to blackmail the migrants fighting against the eviction.

The other three were arrested due to their friendly and comrade relationships. They now find themselves charged with an enormous case file which includes 55 attacks.

Athens,Greece: (Whatever the decision, fire to every prison!) Freedom to comrades D. Hatzvassiliadis & V. Stathopoulos

Athens ; (Whatever the decision, fire to every prison!) Freedom to D. Hatzivassiliadis and  V. Stathopoulos

Power fears the revolutionary impulse and is on its knees when the revolutionary perspective for a new world, free and unconstrained, without slaves and hypocrisy, is born. The State begins to disintegrate when the will for its effective deconstruction begins in practice and as a whole. The prisoners of the war of liberation are the vanguard of the struggle and our solidarity is non-negotiable and unconditional.

We stand by the struggles of our comrades in the courts and in captivity. Our struggles against the violence of the State and capital do not stop in the courtrooms or in the prisons!

Attack on the metro construction sites – Taking responsibility Athens, Greece.

On Monday, 26 December, we set fire to 2 construction machines used at the building site for the new metro line in May Day Square.
We attacked the metro machines on Veikou Avenue in Galasti area as soon as the weather changed. We realized that with the intense humidity in the air, there was a possibility of the action failing. In any case, we decided to take the risk and the result was that 3 project machines were completely destroyed and probably several more got damaged, which was a positive thing for us.

What happened will in no way stop work on the metro, but it did result in 5 damaged machines which caused a good financial loss and sent a message of resistance. Perhaps our action only caused a slight delay in the work process, but we will always prefer action to simply being a spectator to this absurd and sad reality.

ACTIVISTS DAMAGE ANIMAL PRODUCT PACKAGES IN SUPERMARKETS DURING CHRISTMAS. (December, Athens,Greece)

ACTIVISTS DAMAGE ANIMAL PRODUCT PACKAGES IN SUPERMARKETS DURING CHRISTMAS.

December, Athens:

“While life in the metropolis becomes more and more difficult for human and non-human animals who try to survive in it, the mayor of athens decided to remind us this year how easily τhe states domination can destroy nature, by placing a 21 meters tree from karpenisi, in syntagma square. Under the tree and the 40,000 lights that illuminated it, uniformed bastards were placed in order to preserve the “festive atmosphere”. After all, they had every reason to be afraid, since on December 5, a cop literally performed his duty by shooting the 16-year-old Roma Kostas Frangoulis, a day before the anniversary of the murder of the 16-year-old anarchist Alexis Grigoropoulos.

The festive atmosphere continued in the municipality of Volos, since real non-human animals were used as accessories to decorate two nativities in the area. Non-human animals have once again been exploited in the name of customs and tradition.

Athens ,Greece Taking responsibility for the paint attack on the offices of New Democracy in the area of Koukaki by Anarchists.

Athens, Taking responsibility for the paint attack on the offices of New Democracy political party  in Koukaki area,  by Anarchists

In October 2022, within the framework of the zero tolerance doctrine, the new prison code is passed, which among other things makes the granting of leave and the conditional release of prisoners even more difficult and essentially restores the C-type prisons with the “maximum security prisons”. In response to this treaty, on 28 October, mobilisations by prisoners in prisons throughout the country began. The State, in an attempt to intimidate those who are struggling, reacts vindictively, targeting some of them in their cells with threats and bullshit.

Hence, at dawn on Monday 19/12 the kidnapping of the political prisoner for participation in the organization Anarchist Action, Thanos Chatzianggelou, and his transfer from his cell in Korydallos to the prison of Nigrita Serres. On 22/12, the transfer of comrade K. Dimalexis to the prison of Trikala was carried out In the same way.

Attack with Fire for Thanos Chatzianggelou in (Berlin, Germany)

“The state is not something that can be destroyed by revolution, but it is a condition, a certain relationship between people, a mode of human behavior; we destroy it by entering into other relationships, by behaving differently.”

– Gustav Landauer

When we carried the spirit of solidarity to Berlin-Neukölln in the first hours of January 3, Thanos Chatzianggelou was in the 15th day of his hunger and thirst strike.

Our target was a truck from the car rental company Hertz, which we burned completely because Hertz – not only in Greece, but especially there – provides vehicles to the enemy (police, military, private security forces) at reduced prices. In the USA, in December, Hertz had to pay almost 170 million dollars in compensation to former customers who were falsely accused by Hertz of stealing rental cars, some of whom ended up in jail.

Greece : Financial support for court expenses of comrade Kostas K.

**The photo was taken in 2007 during the insurrection at the prison of Malandrino.

Back in the distant 2007, at a time of underlying and subtle social processes that would culminate in the December 2008 uprising, the authorities were looking after one of their favourite children. George Voulgarakis, a member of the deepest party-apparatus of New Democracy and Minister of Public Order, is caught up in the maelstrom of phone tapping scandals and ‘disappearances’ of Pakistani migrants and refugees. The state, however, always takes care of its children and Voulgarakis goes on “vacation”, away from the “hot potato” of the Ministry of Public Order, taking over the “loose” Ministry of Culture.

But some people do not forget and do not forgive. At 10:00am on July 3, 2007, a few hours after Voulgarakis and his police escort arrived at the ministry on Bouboulinas Street, they were attacked by a group of twenty comrades, with Molotov cocktails and a bag full of gasoline canisters and camping gas canisters, that fell into Voulgarakis’ own vehicle. The policemen open fire on the comrades, only thus managing to make them retreat.

In the text in which they claimed responsibility, they state:

Athens,Greece: Expropriation in a supermarket in area of Ilisia by Anarchists.

Athens, Expropriation in a supermarket in Ilisia by Anarchists

On Thursday 22 December we carried out an expropriation at the Market supermarket in the neighbourhood of Iisia and the products were shared among the people at the adjacent street market. If the legality of the State has taught us anything, it is that it can steal in a legal way. From morning to night we work grueling hours, running around like crazy and unable to make it through the month. We practically live just to work.

State and bosses devalue our entire life in every possible way. They rob us through wage labour. They execute us with the cops on the streets. They torture and rape us in the police stations. They drown us at the borders. They throw us out of our homes.This is their world of legitimacy.

General Hospital of Serres,Greece: Declaration by hunger and thirst striker (since 19/12) comrade Th. Chatzianggelou, of Anarchist Action Organisation, concerning attempts to force feed him.

Declaration by hunger and thirst striker (since 19/12) comrade Th. Chatzianggelou, of Anarchist Action Organisation, concerning attempts to force feed him

Both I and the Anarchist Action Organization have stood by the side of the struggling medical community over the years, through forms, fronts and actions of revolutionary violence that have shown solidarity in practice.

My respect for the vocation of this community of people fighting for the collective health of the social base, completely sidelined by the State and capitalist monopolies, is strictly the same.

But if they act as prosecutors in violation of my conscious will, they will see a man they have not known till now. Unfortunately for my tormentors, I still have plenty of breathing room to defend political responsibility.

The red line is in my veins. If blood is spilled, it will not be mine alone.
