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

“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
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
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.

in solidarity to the Greek comrades in court today 17 January for the start of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire trial.
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.
