“Clearing the Air” by Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

20/01/2015 in Prison Struggle

via InterArma:

Friday, January 16th 2015, police officers of the Blackmail Department accompanied by EKAM [anti-terrorist agency], invade the cells where the members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire are held, both in A’ wing, and the basement of the isolation wings (for the 2nd time within 10 days, after the 1st invasion of the same agency). During the searches that followed, they seized phone agendas, calling cards, USB sticks and personal handwritten political notes. The proposition was the ridiculous police–media fabrication which presents our organization to have connections with the so-called ‘night circles’ of extortion. These myths aim to depoliticize and smear the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and the circles of Black Anarchy. We shall clear up the obvious. Our code of values and our rebellious anarchist consciousness are opposed and hostile to that of organized crime and Mafia practices. Besides, the real organized crime rests in the centers of the State and the police. Beyond that, we neither apologize, nor regret our friendships. For days now, journalists, at the behest of the police, use our friendly relations, targeting our friend Vasilis Stefanakos [i], in order to present the fabrication of the “terrorists-criminals” osmosis and create new case files. We are going to defend this friendship of ours in every way, because it doesn’t fit into labels of “terrorists” nor “criminals”, which are given to us by the courts and the reports. This specific friend, like other long-term convicts who are mentioned in the news as so-called collaborators of ours, have NOTHING to do with the planned escape attempt. These ridiculous scenarios about the connection of the Cells of Fire with organized crime are trying to soil the obvious beauty of the comrades’ attempt to break the shackles of captivity.

What’s more beautiful than a prison exploding…

What’s uglier than a lie which is believed not even by its instigators…

What’s more obvious than vengeance…

IF FREEDOM IS A CRIME, LET’S ALL TURN INTO CRIMINALS

On January 16th 2015, an invasion of EKAM police officers [anti-terrorist unit] and other repressive forces took place and they carried out searches in our fellow prisoners’ cells. This is why our midday yard time did not happen and we remained locked all day. A few days ago, during the lunch time on New Year’s Eve, the initial transfer of prisoners was ordered so that the Greek Guantanamo bay of Domokos could be be inaugurated (although on this specific day transfers don’t regularly take place), playing this way their dirty electoral game on our backs. On Saturday January 3rd, after an invasion and investigation by the EKAM, our fellow prisoners and members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Christos Tsakalos and Gerasimos Tsakalos, were kidnapped in the night and transferred to the isolation-basement of the women’s Korydallos prison. After all this, we decided to mobilize and as a first reaction we refused to be locked back in our cells in the midday, until Saturday January 24th 2015. In the following days, we are going to escalate our actions if necessary. We are going for:

1) The abolition of the ‘C’ type prisons.

2)The return of all those already transferred to the ‘C’ type prison in Domokos, and the return of our fellow prisoners Gerasimos Tsakalos and Christos Tsakalos from the isolation wing of the women’s prison of Korydallos, back to the prison they were in.

3) During this rebellion, we’re not going to accept any more transfers to the ‘C’ type prisons. We will consider every such act as revenge against our struggle and we are going to react accordingly.

When will Koutsimichali, the Director of Korydallos prison, and the prosecutors Poimenidis and Marsioni stop allowing these unlawful criminal acts? Are they ignorant of the prisoners torture or are they aiming for it?
Let everyone take their responsibilities.

Communique of the Prisoners of the Women’s Wing, Korydallos Prison (Greece)

On January 16th, 2015, an invasion of the EKAM group [anti-terrorist unit] took place in the men’s prison of Korydallos, keeping the whole prison closed from midday till the next morning, blocking the prisoners’ right to have yard time and general activities. Not long ago, on December 12th and on New Year’s Eve, prisoners’ transfers were ordered to Domokos prison, so that the C’ Type prisons are put into action. This is the modern Guantanamo bay. In the very next days, new transfers took place, and specifically there was the transfer of the two members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire to the white cells of Korydallos’ women prison.

In this electoral game played against prisoners, women prisoners have turned for a long time now into sacks of potatoes squeezed and crowded together in a warehouse of souls, without anyone giving a shit. While the women’s prison has three wings with 150 people capacity in each, right now 120 women have been crammed into the floor of one single wing, as the other rooms were given over for other uses or are empty.

We’re not going to analyze the data further, but not so long ago we made demonstrations denouncing all the problems we are experiencing today and the promises given by the representatives of the Ministry before our eyes, which were never put in place. Since we’re not going to stand for living like animals anymore, and, of course, no animal deserves to live like we do; since the C’ Type prisons today deal with the male prisoners, but tomorrow another one will be built for us; and, lastly, since we’re not going to put up with political games being played on our backs, as from today January 18th, 2015, to January 21st, 2015, we refuse to go back to our cells during the midday lockdown, as an act of solidarity with the demands of the male prisoners in Korydallos prison.

WAR COMMUNIQUE

“First I shot him in the mouth to stop him talking crap;
then I shot him in the arm to stop him writing crap”-
Jacques Mesrine on the kidnapping of a French journalist

The filthy war and the vulgarity of journalists as regards the case of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire intended prison escape have no end. They have been targeting comrade Angeliki, emotionally blackmailing her parents, and spreading vile lies about her alleged involvement as an intimate friend of the arrestee.

Angeliki is an intimate friend of insurgency, anarchy, freedom.

Struggle and anarchy would be the only feasible reality if there were more people like Angeliki.

SCUMBAGS SNITCHES JOURNALISTS – WE WILL TAKE REVENGE.

SOLIDARITY AND STRENGTH by any means possible to comrade Angeliki
and to all those wanted in connection to the same case.

The Cells will always stand by you…
