Long live the Informal Anarchist Federation – International Revolutionary Front

“Lightning never travels in straight repetitive lines. It breaks out
suddenly. Even an apparent ‘silence’ is not a retreat, but the calmness
before the storm…”


The imprisoned members of the R.O. CCF

A flame of solidarity from the C.C.F. to the brothers and sisters in Chile

Forever free

Forever anarchists.

Long live the FAI / IRF

Letter of anarchist political prisoner Theofilos Mavropoulos who is imprisoned in Koridallos prisons

Theofilos Mavropoulos was arrested two months ago after being wounded during an armed confrontation with two police officers (who also got their share) in northern Athens. He spent several weeks at Red Cross Hospital before being transferred to a prison hospital and then to A Wing at Korydallos Prison. Below is his first full-length open letter.
Letter of anarchist political prisoner Theofilos Mavropoulos who is imprisoned in Koridallos prisons
“A revolutionary is like a kamikaze, who simply does not accept the fate that the machine gave to them. It is simple to ask for a life that is worth living. Those who totally deny this society have already faced the risk of death. The struggle against the existing way of things is an armed goodbye.-

War or suicide”
Collaboration of individuals for the realization of the negative
from the pamphlet

On 18/5/2011 in the area of Pefki, me and my comrade had an accidental meeting with cops. They wanted us to stop, we tried to leave but we failed (a cop dashed at my comrade while my comrade tried to escape) and thus, wanting to get us out of this situation I made the choice, the political choice of armed conflict. Wanting to slip away from the armed praetors of democracy and since we could not surrender without a fight, deciding to risk in this way, gave the opportunity to my comrade, who was unarmed, to get away. My comrade made it away successfully using their own copcar, but I could not follow because of my injury.
The reason that me and my comrade did not stop at a police control is because we had made the conscience choice of revolutionary illegality. The last and obligatory choice of someone who denies the imposition of imprisonment on them from “Justice”.

The condition of illegality involves a life on the edge of the razor, where the choices get tougher since the risk goes sky high. Legality” is therefore of obvious use to a revolutionary entity.
Nevertheless for all those revolutionaries that come to the dilemma of surrendering or not, how easy or how difficult they will “sell their corpse” leaves its own deposit of disobedience. As in the case of the “robbers in black” who for many years have made the choice of illegal freedom instead of arrest and imprisonment, and more specifically Simos Seisidis who refusing to stop at a police check lost his leg from a cops bullets. Their examples and not only fill all our hearts with pride and strength.
From now on i define myself as one more anarchist revolutionary political prisoner in the hands of the state. A state that ahead of the likely hatched social disturbances tightens the bonds of its subjects abolishing indirectly or directly a lot of democratic pretexts (abolishment of anonymity of phones, required to carry id card, bounties on fighters heads, publication of photographs of fighters, imprisonment of some of them with non existent evidence, the hood law…).

Such moves however cannot intimidate the generalised war of conscience that is being carried out. A multiform war, in the here and now, constantly evolving, aiming at the inversion of the existing way of things. A revolutionary war. Without a beginning, middle or end, but with many fronts. From the open public assemblies to the dynamic and militant demonstrations and from armed guerrilla attacks to the little everyday influences that evolve us at an individual and collective level.

In order for the anarchist/anti-authoritarian movement to be effective against the methodized moves of the enemy, it should not be torn apart. Shams, individual vanities, personal disputes, envy but mainly the tolerance and consent to such kind of behaviours should give their place to the composition and continuous refreshing of the a/a movement. Especially the moment we observe attempts of organised internationalisation of subversive action, from Latin America all the way to Europe, this need is more important than ever.

Also the fact that the number of political prisoners has increased rapidly recently leads to various conclusions. Apart from the matter of our solidarity, which has substance when it is bidirectional and aggressive, we must contemplate the need for the subversive forces to always be a step ahead of the enemy.

In order to win a war, not only will and abilities are necessary but also strategy. When the opponent moves the pawns so must you.
The way each one will choose to fight is an individual choice and responsibility. Beginning therefore from the individual all it takes is to collectivize the common desire to fight against authority. Surely political balances play their part, whats important however is the effort to invert them for the better.

The spreading of a/a ideas has a leading role. The quantitative and qualitative strengthening is necessary. Moreover casualties are statistically certain in a war. The motive however for a potential revolutionary henceforth is not only the undesirable integration in the lower social layers. It is such the sovereign mesh of capitalistic relations and perceptions in the lives of everyone that you meet “underprivileged” in all social and economic classes. When human life becomes a product on the shelves of supermarkets and marketing, what use is it to speak of expensive and cheap products, when everything has its price. Without a doubt in the classes of the poor and exploited there are healthy revolutionaries, however ther are loyal subjects, many loyal subjects…

“Those of you who today watch your children playing carefree in the playground and in the school yards, do not be surprised if tomorrow you see them forming revolutionary alliances or participating in armed attacks against the state and the capital”.
With consistency and insistence therefore, as well as with inexhaustible fighting mood many things can be done. The degree of conciliation may differ. It either flourishes in the amphitheatres or extinguishes at the barrels of the guns but the aim is the same: REVOLUTION FIRST AND ALWAYS.

… My fingerprints were found in the apartments in Kallithea and Nea Ionias in Volos. I cannot take the historical and political responsibility for my participation in the revolutionary organisation Conspiracy Cells of Fire, since i never had a joint configuration in the political word of the organization, for which I maintain certain disagreements. Therefore I declare clearly that I was not a member of the r.o. C.C.F.
In no case however would these disagreements prevent the path we carved together. Together with the comrades of C.C.F. we evolved, we learned from one another and stronger henceforth acted in favour of the case of freedom and revolutionary prospect. For these reasons therefore I proudly declare myself PRESENT in the houses of Kallithea and Volos, present also in the lives of members of the r.o. C.C.F.
Recognizing their revolutionary action I stand in solidarity to all imprisoned members of the organisation and I send them my comrade greetings.
The pamphlet “the sun will continue rising” should become a prelude of a new more merciless, destructive and unrelenting circle of hostilities. Comrades, whatever the cost we remain with the necks unbent.

Our Lives of Burning Vision – About the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire & more


Actforfreedomnow – Bourbouras present a 68 page publication about the most recent situations and events connected with the Revolutionary Organisation Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and their 17 January International Solidarity Call for an International Revolutionary Front / Informal Anarchist Federation (Global).

Free PDF – Paper copies available in single copies or bundles (10x = £20 + postage) from 325.nostate.net or from the radical distros which carry 325 magazine. Benefit for CCF prisoners and accused of the same case – Nonprofit.

“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
