Greece: CCF – Bullets of words for the bullets of FAI/FRI

It is a wonderful moment, the moment that the enemy kneels and falls from the determination of your brothers and sisters. A few days ago Roberto Adinolfi, CEO-magister of the nuclear energy company Ansaldo Nucleare, was shot by our brothers and sisters of the Olga Cell of the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI)–International Revolutionary Front (FRI).

Roberto Adinolfi is a high priest of the new totalitarianism of science and technology imperatives. Science has become the modern religion of our time, promising an apathetic society the lethargy of a stuffed belly and artificial paradises in exchange for the coldness of an empty heart drowned in compromise.
The empire of scientific totalitarianism is fed by the vanity of an anthropocentric authoritarian civilization. A civilization imposed on our desires, our choices, the nature and animals, turning life into a quantitative scale to fit its miserable statistics. At the same time, contemporary people end up unable to even dare to live authentically, without hypocrisy, and as they sink deeper into their reliance on technological substitutes of real life they create illusions and superficial relationships. Now, with their scientific discoveries, they can ‘offer’ us more time to grow old but deprive us of a way to live authentically. So, science generates the coldest of all monsters of the human folly. It lays the technological fascistization of our lives. It lays genetic testing, electronic monitoring, laboratory animals, research statistics, the dictatorship of machines and numbers.

Alongside the high priests of nuclear energy like Adinolfi poison and plunder the nature, animals and people, dressing up their scientific crimes in the guise of evolution. The shootings of Adinolfi are the new poetry of anarchist action. In the social machine of indolence and compromise, the humanitarian appeals and the reformist inhibitions concerning ‘respect’ for human life will never miss. But in our own consciousness code things are clear. We don’t have any respect for human life as SELF-WORTH. What human life per se does is to produce the option of CHOICES. The CHOICES are those that give value to human life, or devalue and trivialize it. Thus, what is the reason to respect the human life of small and large tyrants like Adinolfi, who haven’t for even a moment respected our own lives?

The practice of armed attacks was, is and will be an integral part of the new anarchist urban guerrilla warfare. The choice of the COMRADES of FAI/FRI to name the cell that has attacked Adinolfi as Olga Cell after our comrade Olga Ekonomidou is a great honour for us and a profound act of friendship, one we will never forget. The bullets and the words of FAI/FRI have managed to break the impregnable of the specific conditions imposed on Olga in Diavata prisons and to storm the solitary cell where she is being held under disciplinary punishment, monitored 24 hours a day through CCTV camera; they have, thus, given her strength and smile now that she knows everything continues.

For us the Italian FAI/FRI is the Conspiracy’s second home, and half of our heart belongs to the Italian FAI/FRI. We look forward to the time when we will join our sisters and brothers of FAI/FRI and surge forward into new battles for the lasting anarchist insurrection. Both FAI/FRI and Conspiracy of Cells of Fire are not a prescription for canned answers, but they are a good way to begin with questions and queries for an authentic and free life. Comrades of FAI/FRI: may a bullet come with our every word, as thought comes with your every bullet… And life’s magazine continues to be loaded with dreams, desires, anxieties, tears, smiles, concerns, discussions, actions…

One day after the responsibility claim by the Olga Cell of FAI/FRI, we were informed by the media that the Bologna’s prosecution office, via the ridiculous puppet–public prosecutor Enrico Cieri, issued arrest warrants against us for the booby-trapped parcel that was sent to Berlusconi. More precisely, arrest warrants were issued for five of us (Panagiotis Argirou, Giorgos Nikolopoulos, Haris Hadjimihelakis, Gerasimos Tsakalos and Christos Tsakalos), as well as for two unrelated guys that have no connection whatsoever with the Conspiracy and the insurrectionary anarchy of FAI/FRI.

The warrants against us are in retaliation by the Bologna’s prosecution office for the attack of our sisters and brothers of the FAI/FRI Olga Cell. It is a desperate attempt of the Italian authorities to interrupt and impede the informal international network that has developed among the tens of FAI/FRI cells. But in vain. The invitation-inducement of Italian comrades to create an informal anarchist federation of anarchist of praxis and its constant advancement is already in the minds and hearts of comrades from around the world. No prosecution can ever stop it anywhere.

The comrades of FAI/FRI had written in one of their texts ‘Do not say that we are few,’ and we now add ‘Do not say that they can stop us…’ The Informal Anarchist Federation travels over borders and cities, carrying with it the momentum of a lasting anarchist insurrection. As the CCF imprisoned members’ cell, along with our comrade and brother Theofilos Mavropoulos, we are TOGETHER with the FAI/FRI on this journey of no return. We have burned the bridges behind us, and any inhibition has died. We are anarchists of praxis, and all we can say to the Bologna’s prosecution office is this: Your warrants are nothing but shitpapers to us, and we are completely indifferent towards the ridiculousness of your existence as the Italian State’s judicial representatives. It is a dangerous time for the prosecutors’ mafia nowadays. The lives of worms like you might soon meet with a heavy rain of bullets, or a powerful bomb in your car, or an explosive parcel in your hands… The arrest warrants in retaliation against us is yet another proud proof that the FAI/FRI Olga Cell counteracted with outstanding accuracy, causing panic in the enemy. The attacks that our sisters and brothers preannounced through their communiqué are an admirable continuation of the challenge unleashed by both FAI/FRI and CCF against the Power and the social machine. That is the challenge of the lasting anarchist insurrection. That is the challenge of the international cooperation of anarchists of praxis.

And if some of us are now captives in the enemy’s hands, that does not frighten us or make us regret. On the contrary, prison feeds the wolf within us, and our rage against the Power and its society grows stronger. All of us, along with Eat, Billy, Gabriel, Marco, Silvia, Billy, Costa, Jock and the imprisoned comrades in $hile, Mexico, Italy and elsewhere, nor for a moment were we left alone. Because we have all of you, the unknown free brothers and sisters, whose actions we feel as our own actions, whose words are met with our own…

“Breaking down the myths of prison” – Solidarity to Olga Economidou by Conspiracy of Cells of Fire & Theofilos Mavropoulos (Greece)

boubourAs!/Act for freedom now!

CCF – SOLIDARITY TO OLGA ECONOMIDOU – Breaking down the myths of prison.

“Turn off the main switch in this dump. Here the beautiful becomes ugly,
the choice becomes a habit and the meaningless important. Prison dirties
creases and swallows pieces of dreams, desires, thoughts and feelings. Its
most permanent residents, the majority of the prisoners are now a part of
the appliances of the prison. Bars, yard, cameras, locks, prisoners mix
all together and re-enact the world of captivity. Nothing is worthy in
here. Come let’s go and don’t look back… Only fire will cleanse this
place… ”
Prison and its numbered residents. Prison and the degradation of its
prisoners. Prison and its myths…
Behind the iron door of prison which closes, there is a captive world
which has nothing to envy of the “free” world.
Away from the illusions of an alleged value code of the outlaws, a
make-believe solidarity between the prisoners and supposed self-organized
struggles and revolts, the society of the prisoners is the mirror of the
law abiding society.

Conservatism, hypocrisy, racism, misery, compromise and snitching, this is
the civilization of the prisoners. Remnants of human shadows next to
leftover smack and pills. Human rodents, customers of the prisons,
decadent misprints of the bosses of this world, who have been exiled to
prison as excessive weight of this earth. Most prisoners are guards of
They have learnt to double-lock themselves in pills, smack, slavery,
habits, the passive counting of days for the miserable repetition of their
subjugated self. Prisoners justify their role as the waste of an even more
sordid society.
We do not intend to become a part of this sad community of human
imitations and shadows.
We keep ourselves away from the annoying noise of the mob and we separate
those few minorities of the prisoners who do not forget the meaning of
We meet with those who did not kneeled against captivity, who did not
exchange their dignity with powders, and pills, who did not lower the eyes
in front of the authorities and the laws, who did not let the prison be
built inside them.
As for the rest we will not fall into the trap of humanism and pity. We do
not appreciate passive emotions. Whoever surrounds themselves with the
motif of resignation or accepts the victimized figure of the “con”, might
win over the sensitivity of the philanthropists and sociologists but from
us receives only a deep contempt. We are hostage anarchist guerrillas and
not just prisoners. To say things as they are is not a result of some
informal elitism or discrimination; simply in this way we attack the
attempt of the state to hide the existence of the anarchist constant
revolt and its hostages.
As anarchist hostages of democracy we never separated ourselves from our
values and ideals. We remain enemies of justice and its courts, promoting
the self-organization of our action and self-redress far from any kind of
The undisputed fact that we are against prisons, does not mean that we are
in solidarity with all prisoners.
A short while ago in Thebes prisons the service purposely transferred to
the wing where our comrade Olga Economidou was, a prisoner which her
attitude and her “penal” actions could not have been tolerated by the
morals, character and dignity of Olga. As we have mentioned there are
prisoners who are as sordid as the society of law abiding citizens.
Our comrade acted consciously resulting in finding herself before the
prosecutor of the prison, accused of “beating an inmate” and was imposed
with a disciplinary transfer. Now she is in the isolation unit of the
female prisons of Diavata where she was transferred with a special
transfer and where she refused to be subjugated to the humiliating body
The precepts of the officer in charge to conform to the body search,
invoking the example of other “anarchist” prisoners who have compromised
with this correctional measure, fell into the void… We are not all the
same… neither do we do the same prison time.
Anyway everyone is not characterized by the political label they have put
on them or has adopted on their own, but by their choices and their
The prosecutor of Diavata prisons because of her refusal to be strip
searched imposed on Olga 10 days confinement to an isolation cell.
We her comrades in the Conspiracy Cells of Fire, are next to her, to her
choices which are our choices as well and send her our most warm embrace
with our unrepentant commitment… we remain for ever in the battle…
P.S. We also want to express our solidarity to anarchist Rami Syrianos who
remaining consistent, he has also refused to succumb to the humiliation of
the strip search, which is essentially the humiliation of dignity, and is
for a month now in an isolation regime in Nigrita prisons. Rami has
already begun prison food abstention….

Athens, second ‘Halandri case’ trial: Letter of Athena Tsakalou to the court 18-4/2012

On April 20th, in the special court-martial of Koridallos women’s prisons where one more trial session of the second ‘Halandri case’ took place, Michalis Nikolopoulos read his request for postponement of the trial and then another statement by Christos Tsakalos and Damiano Bolano (both comrades were absent from court due to their hunger strike). Later, the defense attorney Frangiskos Ragousis handed the judges a letter from Athena Tsakalou, the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos. She herself was present in the courtroom but she refused to testify. The letter wasn’t read in court, and the presiding judge simply announced that ‘it will be added to the transcript.’ The complete letter is as follows:


‘Every act of rebellion expresses nostalgia for innocence and an appeal to the essence of being.’
[Albert Camus]

I am asking myself: why are parents of the anarchists–revolutionaries of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire being subpoenaed to trial? Why are they subpoenaing me? Are they doing it in order to ask me if I know something about the organization? To ask me questions about the personal lives of my sons, sketch out their ‘psychological profile,’ or get an opinion on their ‘family life’? Or to ask me if I agree with the actions of my children and, in general, those of the organization? To stand me up in front of this court, supported by that little book, and make me swear to that god you have placed in the service of Power? To make revolutionary anarchists feel uncomfortable while their parents are asked a bunch of awkward questions? Or is it so that you yourselves can rejoice at the thought that you have made us believe it is we who must give the answers and make an apologia?

I declare, once again, that in no instance am I going to respond positively to your invitation. And since, as demonstrated by everything that’s going on, an entire series of similar trials is set to begin, I tell you that it’s not worth the effort to send me more subpoenas because my position will continue to be the same. Under no circumstances am I going to attend this trial. I will not answer a single one of your questions. The action of my children and their comrades was and is clearly political, anarchist–revolutionary, and it is therefore unnecessary to investigate the parameters of their personal lives. The organization, membership to which they have admitted by claiming political responsibility, has formulated its positions with total clarity, precision and boldness. Anything I could say would be slight and insignificant. And since I would like to leave certain things as clear and potent as they already are, and because I don’t want to give anyone the satisfaction of ruining everything with stupid and excessive questions, I am choosing the position of my absence.

Referring myself to this trial, I don’t want to allow a certain phrase—one that is continually repeated with great zeal and emphasis—to hang in the air as a potential display of temerity and honesty. I’m talking about the phrase: ‘We are trying the case by examining it in depth’; which means that, as you say, you are trying the case in accordance with nothing less than the clauses of your laws; which means that you will pass judgment based on evidence, and not on the circumstantially conclusive or according to the logic of collective responsibility. And if I am mentioning that phrase it’s not because I suddenly expect miracles, but because at a certain moment—and especially in cases dealing with people’s revolutionary action—words must take on importance and responsibility; despite the fact that, thus far, this judicial process has indicated nothing of the kind. Every objection based on common logic, like that of recognizing the Prisoners as political prisoners—exactly as defined by your Constitution and in exactly the same way it’s also mentioned in the charges—, was rejected out of hand, without any logic. The concept of assuming political responsibility has been mistaken for criminal responsibility, and that’s obviously not due to ignorance or chance. Therefore, I underscore that phrase and at the end of the trial we will be able to see whether you are indeed serious about what you are saying.

It’s true that, since the beginning of the prosecution of the contemporary anarchist revolutionaries, I have discovered and paid particular attention to a painting: Bruegel’s painting entitled ‘Landscape with the Fall of Icarus.’ The flight of Icarus has to do with the human being’s desire to escape the land’s grip, to fly; to prevail also in the air, to also walk on air…

It is about pride, arrogance, disobedience and the desire to show that the human being is capable of everything. And now the painter places in the prevailing foreground the farmer—dedicated to the plowing, to the soil, nothing else matters to him—and in the background the shepherd —who is a bit more curious, but also looking in the wrong direction. Even further in the background is the impressive boat continuing its journey, and there in the corner is the drowned Icarus’ poor little foot. I have never before seen such a deposition of the Icarian project. And probably that’s no coincidence—I don’t know what the painter’s philosophy was—, perhaps the meaning is that people who are contemporaries with a bold experiment are too fixed in their own habits, too afraid of change, not daring to recognize or try something new.

Looking at the painting, I don’t accept this deposition. Now that, in this country, people stand trial for still daring to believe that if anything in this life is worth doing it is the Icarian projects—no matter how much pain they may hold, no matter how much incarceration or how many convictions may be imposed on them—I want to maintain the hope and belief that at some point people, the contemporaries with these rebellions, will place in the foreground and recognize the necessity of the flight.
Athena Tsakalou

PS. And if I am sending this note it is because the court’s insistence on my appearance is peculiar, and above all because I do not allow myself silence. Silence only corresponds to the deceased, and in our times it is being applied during these trials by those who are completely subjugated to the commands of Power.
And if you truly want to understand whom you are trying, go on read their discourse, look at their stance. Christos Tsakalos, Gerasimos Tsakalos and Panagiotis Argirou are on the 12th day of hunger strike, and they have declared: ‘The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction’ [William Blake] … ‘When one does not die for the other, then we are already dead’ [Tasos Livaditis]… On April 17th Giorgos Polidoros, Damiano Bolano, Haris Hadjimihelakis began hunger strike in support of their comrades, while the rest of the imprisoned members cell of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire will follow suit at determined dates.


In our non-negotiable decision to turn our daily life into revolution through direct action and the anarchist urban guerrilla warfare, we began a course with a starting point but with no final stop.’

Riot police bus torched in Mexico City

From Liberación Total (April 30, 2012):
Don’t you have any other excuses besides a simple short circuit?
Could it be because we took action right in front of you and you didn’t even realize it?
Comrades, during the night of Monday, April 23, we torched a bus used for transporting the grenadier corps (riot police) to suppress conflicts, blockades, demonstrations, etc. At around 11 p.m., we placed an incendiary device in one of the several buses parked right beside the juvenile prison located at the corner of Avenida Obrero Mundial and Calle Peten in the Narvarte suburb of Mexico City. The incendiary device carried out its task perfectly. Though our main goal was to set fire to two buses, for various reasons we only placed one device. When we say we took action right in front of them, not only are we referring to the location of the buses behind the prison, but also to the patrol car with its lit siren and two prison guards armed with rifles a mere five meters from our target.

We didn’t attack the property of the police in response to the “injustices” they perpetrate, since we don’t believe in the justice that underpins their repressive acts. We set their property on fire as a form of attack on the very existence of police and prisons. As anarchists, we can’t frame our actions within demands that plainly advocate for citizenist causes, whether they involve tiny reforms in response to enormous problems or mere calls to punish the authorities that—under certain “policies”—are accused of incompetence, oppression, or governing badly. We should stay far away from adopting “revolutionary” slogans that perpetuate the existence of prisons, the State, and Capital. We must struggle for the complete destruction of this and any other kind of prison society!
We claim this action in solidarity with anticivilization Anarchist comrade Braulio Durán, who one day decided to take that important step in the struggle, who didn’t just sit around with a mouthful of words and instead shifted into action, who is currently imprisoned in the State’s dungeons in León, Guanajuato. We show solidarity with comrade Tortuga in Chile and we Avenge brother Mauri, who fell in combat. Solidarity with the anarchist compas suffering reprisals at the hands of the Italian State! Solidarity with the comrade prisoners from the Fire Cells Conspiracy and Revolutionary Struggle in Greece! Solidarity with the brothers and sisters recently arrested on charges of explosives possession in Chile! Revolutionary solidarity with the arrested and fugitive comrades in Barcelona!
We are warriors for freedom. We have chosen our path, and it is hard sometimes. But with conviction and total determination we move forward and do not allow ourselves to be defeated, since in our struggle against the State and Capital there can be no truce with those who want to impose their authority on us. And as a prayer, the old insurrectionary anarchist slogans:
Neither dialogue with Power, Nor mediation with the State and its institutions!
Social war on all fronts!
Long live anarchy!
—International Solidarity Conspiracy (Informal Anarchist Federation)

Greece – Disciplinary transfer of Olga Economidou to Diavata prisons 6/5/12

A few days ago comrade –member of the Conspiracy Cells of Fire Olga Economidou was transported with a special transfer from Thebes prisons to the female prisons of Diavata.

Her transportation took place within the frames of a disciplinary transfer imposed on her, because of her attitude and her decency which could not be tolerated from the Thebes prison service.

When they took her to Diavata prisons, she refused to be submitted to the procedure of the humiliating body search resulting to the comrade now being alone in a newcomer’s cell. She has refused to enter Diavata prisons asking to be transferred elsewhere, while at the same time in her cell there is a cctv camera which has already been covered twice from Olga causing the reaction of the prison guards.


Saturday 28/4 Fires on the horizon / Arson attacks in Kifissia Athens.

May 6, 2012

Translated by boubourAs/Act for freedom now!

Fires on the horizon / Arson attacks in Kifissia Athens.

“As an objective of force, the policy is practised having before its eyes
a possibility of exacerbation and violence. Behind the policy hovers the
image of violence and war, precisely behind all limited violence hovers
the image of blind violence.
The beginning of intelligence means the end of blind aggressiveness, that
is to say the intellect is imposed on the instincts that require their
direct discharge into violence, it channels them according to their aims
and it puts in action more drastic means to exercise violence. As soon as
this is realised violence enters the service of the objective of force.
The combinational of force presents much more nuances than the coarse-cut
mechanics of violence, allows numerous variants and exits and mainly next
to the fight between enemies it creates the GAME BETWEEN FRIENDS, which
makes the strong one capable to cause assertions against the more

Hunger strikes and the prospect of a fighting community within the walls.

Last month 2 separate hunger strikes were carried out by anarchist
prisoners, where one of them did not succeed and the other one won. Some
of the comrades who went on hunger strike had put a very strong target to
achieve. The creation of a fighting circle, which aim at the search of
common fields of definition between prisoners. A circle which will connect
with the outside the walls incidents breaking the isolation, giving images
of revolts with fires from the streets of the city to the rooftops of the
Despite all this such a prospect with the current facts seems far away.
The split which emerges within the walls, only contributes to the
shredding of the fighting circle and the internalization of a partition.
To show demands that have such a common axis competitively reduces rather
than accentuates our common struggle. The cohesion of the fighting base is
a one-way road for the creation of a collective. More specifically, if the
anarchist hostages carried out the hunger strike under a common prism,
they would have given the chance to more prisoners to stand by them in
solidarity with various actions, but the hunger strike instead of getting
stronger with time was weakened resulting in the ending of one. As well
the acceptance of defeat is an action that is honest but the hunger strike
is the last weapon in the prisoners struggle and a use of it that will
bring an unexpected interruption and defeat, weakens its power.


“Knock it back, to the Queen whose buttocks cascade in folds! Listen to
the working of stupid tearing hiccups!
Listen to them leaping in the fiery night
The panting idiots, the aged, the nonentities, the lackeys!

Syphilitics, madmen, kings, puppets, ventriloquists,
What can you matter to Paris the whore,
Your souls or your bodies, your poisons or your rags?
She’ll shake you off, you pox-rotten snarlers!

And when you are down, whimpering on your bellies,
Your sides wrung, clamouring for your money back, distracted,
The red harlot with her breasts swelling with battles
Will clench her hard fists, far removed from your stupor!”

On Saturday 28/4 we attacked a block in the area of Kifissia burning the
parked cars of Levitou street, luxurious and not.
It was a move in solidarity to the hunger strikes carried out by the
imprisoned members of the R.O. Conspiracy Cells of Fire and Anarchist
Theofilos Mavropoulos demanding the final transfer of guerrillas
G.Tsakalos and P.Argirou to Koridalos as well as the ceasing of the
vengeful transfers. (something they achieved with persistence).
This action has a clear aim and target to hurt the calmness of the rich
suburbs of the capital. It was a first approach to the well-fed of Kifisia
reminding them that their parasitical life will get the punishment it
deserves. We notify them that nothing will insure them from our morbid
imagination, no matter how many outposts they build, how many courtier
bouncers they hire. They will always be exposed to our aggressive
appetites. Their prosperity is gained by the exploitation of others and
they will pay for this decision sooner or later. No matter how much they
might be cut off from the miserable and enclaved like a prison urban
landscape, no matter how far they have gone the inhumane Athens, the
distance remains small compared to the stubbornness of revenge. Thus at
some point while they will be drinking their coffee with their vulgar
snobbish look, they will receive a visit from many of us, and with the
smile of a donator we will return the perversion they gave to us with a
bullet in the forehead.

Social Responsibilities and the ineffectual of the monothematic Class

Capitalistic societies are based on inequality and this is what they owe
their existence to. A ride with the train would be enough for anyone to
understand the massive social contradictions. The contradictive
coexistence of wealth and poverty, dozing certainty and stressful
survival. An exhaustive hierarchy maintained by ignorance, fear, stupidity
and oppression. For the perpetual accumulation of the wealth to the few
however many are to blame who let it go out of their hands without a
battle and we cannot sacrifice the immaturity to the altar of coquetry.
Every person who considers themselves as weak is charged with their
submission. We do not synchronize with the endurance and tolerance in
exploitation, whether personal or of others, but with every way we will
pursuit its expulsion from the behaviours of people in the relations
created without humanisms.

Therefore we recognize our attack as an act with class characteristics but
not with a class character. It is obvious who we turn our aggressiveness
to, what kind of people. But despite all this we are not representatives
of a class total neither are we messengers of a class conscience. We do
not mediate for anyone just like we do not want a mediator. We are
individualists since what we say write and do are not hiding behind them a
divine will and we are not armed by a global secret conscience, but our
passion for freedom. To believe that deep in the desires of every
oppressed existence there is common destination are stupid thoughts which
idealize the situations, ignoring the difficulties of the liberating
struggle. Whoever recognizes the anarchist revolution as a deductive
procedure and a will from the skies which will be planted in the heads of
the people because of poverty is condemned to never attribute what they

This is why we realize the collectivisations of people which are based on
their common class characteristics as clouds which even if they rain they
will always hide the sun. A unification of people who belong to the same
economic and social layer, under a predetermined revolutionary future is a
hasty deposition of hope. The class and economic situation is not a womb
of revolution, but one more possibility, a faze just like many others
which will present themselves on your path and will make you deny your
life and that of those around you, as it is.
The material lacks, the squalid economic situation, the 8hour shift are
violent and annihilating conditions which push to a reaction. However the
continuous invocations to the workers-proletarians and their elevation to
a revolutionary force is a theoretical analyses and a propagating
targeting which failed in the past and will fail in the future since it
limits the reasoning approach for the revolution in the narrow limits of
the economic need.
Every insurrectional attempt of the revolted based solely on the material
poverty of the masses can create an economic system with a fairer
distribution of production (for as long as it lasts), but it will not
destroy the hierarchy of people, the alienation, the tyranny of the
specialists and the smarter, since we would not have revolted for the
abolishment of impositions on our lives.


Our attacks are connected with the global network of guerrilla attempts of
the Informal Anarchist Federation.
Finally concerning the upcoming elections with the conscious absence and
the factual juxtaposition with the regime we go against every authority
and those who tolerate it. In the maze of democracy and the confusion of
the voters we produce explosions spreading our chaos

“-Society, and everything, is restored: – the orgies
Are weeping with dry sobs in the old brothels:
And on the reddened walls, the gaslights in frenzy,
Flare balefully upwards to the wan blue skies!”

“In the chaos of our own existence we are a part of the imponderable element which organizes subversion, plans mutinies, that leave even ourselves dazed. The translation of texts, letters, communiqués, etc. so that comrades in other countries around the world can read about the desires and ideas and projectuality of the comrades in Greece, is one more weapon at our disposal. What began as a simple desire and a challenge, has brought us into a new field of experiences, acquaintances and responsibilities. Now that we’re here, they will not get rid of us easily.
We have become another aspect of the asymmetric threat. The war to the end, has already begun. …”

This is why, as individuals with our actions and solidarity, we will continue with all means possible as anarchist revolutionary insurrectionalists, to express our thoughts and desires, whether it’s through the letters-texts of our fighting comrades who are hostages in the hell-holes of Greek democracy or through the actions of the comrades outside in the streets day and night with all means untilsocial liberation for Anarchy.

Actforfreedomnow - Boubouras

March 2011
From the introduction by Actforfreedomnow – Bourbouras.

A huge storm of revolt raged through the streets of Greece in December 2008. After the 15 year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos was murdered in coldblood by a cop, riots spread throughout the whole country for several weeks. Hundreds of corporate and government targets were attacked, plundered and set on fire. Although it was anarchists and anti-authoritarians who took the lead in this storm during the first week after the murder, it spread itself fast and many people got involved in this revolt against miserable living conditions, against the authorities and against the hopelessness offered by this world to the exploited and oppressed. But the revolt didn’t cease at the end of 2008, neither did it start on the day of the murder. The attacks against the structures of State and Capital went on and spread to several smaller towns in Greece.

About 180 fire attacks and, since a couple of months, artisan [‘homemade’] bombing attacks were carried out under the name of ‘Conspiracy of Cells of Fire’. The attacks targeted banks, car dealers, shopping centres, governmental institutions, police stations, offices of political parties, houses of politicians, judges, criminologists, journalists, private security firms and companies building prisons,… and always accompanied by elegantly critical and nihilistic claims of anarchist responsibility.

The claims did not only criticize Capital, State and Authority (in all of their aspects), but also the resignation of the exploited, their herd mentality, their collaboration with the system. The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF) refuse to regard oppression and exploitation as simply being imposed by batons and blackmail, but understand it as a social relation in which all have their responsibility –and make or don’t make the choice to fight against it.

In September 2009 extensive anti-terror raids attempted to strike the CCF, these raids became one more political tool to attack the wider anarchist & anti-authoritarian movement, a situation which intensified when two members of the CCF were captured during an operation in November 2010, Athens. Against the ongoing legalistic kidnapping of our comrades and for the escalation of struggle for total liberation, the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Illegal Sector called for an informal global project based on anarchist subversion, direct action and international solidarity. These papers document some of the many communiques, letters and legal & court updates concerning the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, the accused comrades of the same case, plus solidarity actions resulting from the call for a formation of an Informal Anarchist Federation / International Revolutionary Front.

Whilst this publication can of course only offer a partial view upon the situation and topics, it is produced in the spirit of rebellion which fuels the total war against domination. It is an unfinished document that seeks collaboration through acts of refusal. The international call which has been circulated for the subversive formation of an International Revolutionary Front / Informal Anarchist Federation (Global), which is based on the principles of international solidarity, permanent subversion and constant conflict should be discussed, debated and acted upon without delay.

Mad arson attacks for Conspiracy of Cells of Fire

Athens, Greece

The communique spontaneously combusted shortly after appearing:

“Saturday night 15/1 and Sunday 16/1 we torched:
- bank of Proton Bank in Vironas area
- Local organization of PASOK (ruling party) in Moshato,
- Two vehicles of a security company in Gizi,
- Personal motorbike of a cop who lives in Exarchia (Asimaki Fotila street).

We dedicate these actions to our imprisoned comrades accused in the case of the “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire” and tried as of today in the political court marshal in Koridallos prison. Three of those have taken the political responsibility for the organization, while the others deny their participation, but keep intact their rebelliousness and dignity. We pledge that we will not leave any imprisoned revolutionary alone. These violent acts of resistance are not only fair, but also the duty of every person who puts themselves against a world where exploitation and injustice reign and money is in charge. The individual agreements and disagreements are to be discussed; what is non-negotiable is: solidarity between individuals and groups who are fighting for freedom in every way and with any means. Also, towards the new treaty that criminalizes social, political and personal relationships (like in the case of the notorious “safehouse” of Halandri, but recently the case of the four comrades wanted for arson in Thessaloniki), we respond with even more rage and anger, more litres of petrol and butane bottles. Of course, we do not forget the famously disgusting minions of the system, the journalists, who for a salary and a career, mock and step on the freedom and the dignity of our comrades, repeating the lies of the police and presenting various scenarios of their imagination; to try, condemn and destroy lives and reputations, before “civil justice” does it officially. They should know that on this side of the war, memory and honour is in excess, and sooner or later they will pay for the dirty role they have chosen in life.

Finally, we want to say that we chose to act on this theoretically “tough” weekend before the beginning of the trial, when the police have unleashed their obvious and also hidden running dogs, in fear of a new armed attack, to break in this way the terror and fear that the State attempts to impose on society and on people who are fighting. As long as the State is unable to mend the holes of a system that’s collapsing, the noose will tighten and the measures will intensify. We must stand strong and act with all our power, until the Revolution and Liberation, social and individual.

Freedom to H.Hadjimihelakis, P. Argirou, G.Tsakalos who have taken the political responsibility for the “Conspiracy Cells of Fire” and P.Massouras, K.Karakatsani, A.Mitrousias, G.Karagiannidis who are imprisoned for the same case.

Solidarity to all imprisoned anarchists and revolutionaries.
Struggle by any means – Revolution First and Always.

midnight express

İstanbul, Turkey (16.01.2011) - In the night of 16th of January 2011 at 7 p.m. against the biggest one of the shopping centers in Istanbul, Cevahir AVM, there was an attack with fireworks.

The 4 of the exploded 7 fireworks hit the entrance and the windows of shopping center. While fireworks begin to explode, there had been no injury except a little bit panic.

While the banks, shopping centers, fasfoods and other part of the consuming culture reduce imagination and free time to shit and debt, while our planet began to unliveable because of the consumption and commodification, we see a little art-sabotage not inappropriate.

The actions that we took like this is for solidarity with our comrades who are now in hostages in Greece dungeons and with Conspiracy Cells of Fire.

Insurrectionary greetings
