The destruction of prisons is the destruction of the values of this authoritarian world.
We know that the road to a world without prisons, without authority, requires much reflection and action.
Reflecting on how to solve our problems of today and tomorrow from an anarchic perspective, without falling into authoritarian logics and turning them into action in the different environments we inhabit is a challenge.

Reversing the condition of political isolation of the one who escapes from extortionate conventions, an isolation that the state pursues and which in turn serves the state (wherever it may come from), I participated to the maximum in the public dialogue of the movement, with a view to the evolution of the revolutionary class struggle.
The period of exile was a transitional attempt to reposition myself in the global socio-political space of the resistance with the aim of fleeing forward. At first, the breach of the embedded obstacles was not achieved. I remained trapped in an isolation related to the collective impasses of the Greek movement.
