CICP 21 TER RUE VOLTAIRE 75011 PARIS - METRO NATION/ALEXANDRE DUMAS

We are facing an extortionate reality. 18 anarchist fighters in the hands of the state, with many of them imprisoned with extremely heavy sentences. At the same time the charges facing those who have not as of yet been brought to trial may also in all probability lead to long prison sentences. Yiannis Dimitrakis charged with the National Bank robbery on Solonos st. in the centre of Athens has been convicted in the first degree court to 35 years of imprisonment, Polikarpos Georgiadis and Vaggelis Hrisohoidis charged with the kidnap of the then president of the Industrial Association of Northern Greece (where all the fat cat bosses belong to) to 23 years. Ilias Nikolau, with a 7-year sentence for attempted arson against a Municipal Police building and Yiorgos Voutsis-Vogiatzis, convicted for the National Bank robbery in the Gyzi area of Athens, also remain incarcerated.

Other comrades remain in remand, awaiting trial. Konstantina Karakatsani, Panagiotis Masouras and Haris Hatzimichelakis accused of participation in the "terrorist" organization Cells of Fire Conspiracy, Alfredo Bonanno and Christos Stratigopoulos accused of a bank robbery in Trikala, Aris Sirinidis with the ludicrous accusation that he was the guy in a sombrero and vermuda trousers that fired shots at a riot police van in Exarhia in the summer of '09. The comrades Vaggelis Stathopoulos, Christoforos Kortesis and Sarantos Nikitopoulos are also in prison awaiting trial accused of participation in the "terrorist" organization Revolutionary Struggle, as well as the comrades Pola Roupa, Nikos Maziotis and Kostas Gournas, who have claimed the responsibility of being members of the same organization. Last but not least the comrade Simos Seisidis, -a fugitive since 2005 accused of participating in the bank robbery with Yiannis Dimitrakis and of being a member of the police and media constructed 'robbers in black' gang- was recently arrested. Simos was shot in the leg by the arresting cop, leading to the amputation of his leg and is now in remand at the St Paul prison hospital of Koridallos,

Many other comrades remain in a different state of hostage as there are warrants out for their arrest. Some of these warrants concern charges in relation to participation in the Cells of Fire Conspiracy, while Grigoris Tsironis and Marios Seisidis are wanted with a 600,000 euro reward on their heads. All comrades are accused with charges of robberies or "terrorism". A tragic end to this list concerns the murder of anarchist fighter Lambros Foundas after an incident with the cops in the Athens area of Daphni.

We are not talking here about an emotional count of the losses on the side of the anarchists and anti-authoritarians in the last five years. We are well aware after all that the sharpening of repression both against the anarchists and people in struggle as well as against the repressed in general and the raging dynamics that they appear to be developing with increasing intensity, is the outcome of a war manifested in the existence of two opposing sides. December, the rocks, the Molotov cocktails, the occupations of buildings, expropriated banks, blown-up buildings, armed attacks, strikes, demonstrations that hold under siege the Parliament, the president of the GSEE (the sold-out to the bosses general workers trade-union) being attacked at workers' mobilizations, politicians being jeered at during their public appearances are not incidents that have taken place by mere chance. Nor is the everyday reality of the struggle, of relationships between comrades, of collective processes, of self-organized projects that go against the dictates of dominant everyday life, incidental. There is an all and more intense feeling of collective strength that must seek to confront the enemy.

From discontent through to upheaval, from demonstrations to clashes, from attacks to insurrection the state must win back space, it has to show its teeth. It must enforce poverty, the "socialist" distribution of wealth from those at the bottom to those at the top. Without any protest. With journalists taking on the role of government spokesmen, judges and inquisitors free from any legal restraint, prisons in a state of the highest security, with more cops then ever on the streets ready to shoot. In order to instill the fear that will lead to submission the state must punish in an exemplary way those who rebel and fight. As a consequence we find ourselves at this particular period with a number of prisoners, either already having been sentenced to many years in prison or in all probability going to have heavy sentences dished out to them when they are tried.

Our solidarity towards our captive comrades at this crucial moment stands strong and is expressed through diverse action, as it has been expressed for decades by the anarchists and anti-authoritarians to the hostages of the social-class war who through the years have filled up the prisons. A part of this solidarity is also the direct practical support of our comrades in prison, the necessity and ability to provide them with the basics for their survival within the hellholes of democracy. Always bearing in mind, of course, that by no means can our solidarity be restricted to this sole purpose.

At the end of the day we know that prison forms the biggest crime against human existence and as such the only thing that it deserves is to be torn down so that not even its foundations remain. We also know that the final destruction of prison, in other words the radical, deep rooted change of the world we live in, will not be granted to us nor will it take place suddenly, out of the blue, in metaphysical terms. It will take place through struggle, through the ceaseless clash with whatever produces exploitation, repression, alienation. It will take place by the individuals themselves who through their stance and actions remain in conflict and struggle for the destruction of all authority, for freedom.

The above has been based on a text by the Initiative of anarchists from Athens calling for the creation of an anarchist prisoner fund.

The mass media and police immediately began a disinformation campaign, suggesting that Aris and Simos Seisidis had perpetrated a "bloody robbery" at a Praktiker hardware store. A day later, the authorities rejected that version of events, and on May 7 they decided to grant Aris a provisional release. However, the pigs weren't satisfied with that decision, and a new arrest warrant was issued for him just before his release. This time, Aris was charged with a police shooting that happened last year. One afternoon at the beginning of July 2009, someone wearing shorts, sandals, a Mexican sombrero, and a surgical mask walked out on to Harilaou Trikoupi Street in Exarcheia and opened fire on a riot police unit guarding the headquarters of the socialist PASOK party.
