Interview with Polykarpos Georgiadis, blamed by Greek Authorities for participation in the industrialist Mylonas kidnapping.

Question: - In a letter of yours from inside the prison you have made clear that innocence and guiltiness is a fake separation, which has to make only with the legal arsenal of state. During the beginning of the trial your statement was that you deny the blames. Which exactly is your line of defense?

Answer: In the court I denied the indictment, accepting only the event that as an antiauthoritarian and friend I helped Palaiokostas to hide himself. Beyond this, the dipole innocence-guiltiness is a tool in the hands of burgoise legal thought and does not concider me. The Civil Law, in which is also contained this dipole, intends only for ensuring the operational conditions of the capitalists' criminal class. If I would have been affirming either innocent or guilty it would be like accepting this framework. On the other hand, since 19th century the court is a public forum for the radical movement. I used this forum not only about the criminal aspect of the case, but also to defend my political choices.

Q: - Palaiokostas relievs you from any cooperation in the kidnapping of Mylonas. He returns the involvement of your in the case on your friendship. But from your side, you go one step further and advocate morally and ideologically his actions. Don't you think that this way, you make things more difficult in your position?

A: - Morally and ideologically in solidarity with Palaiokostas' actions is the whole of Greek population. Let us put all in prison! I would just like to remind the words of Rigas Feraios: "When the Authorities rape, fail, destroy the rights of people [...] then, the revolution from people or a part of them, to grasp the weapons and punish the tyrrans is the most sacred of all the laws and the most essential of all his debts".

Q: - What do you think about the attitude of Mylonas in front of you?

A: - I think that Mylonas or he is under confuse or his service is configured. He fell into numerous contradictions -such as, for example, the existence of an Albanian citizen in the kidnapping, who disappears as if by magic!. And reached the point to recognize me because of my ears! It was a breath of hilarity in the cop-occupied court room. Unlike, his wife was honest and refused to recognize us. This deposit was ignored -luckily happened?- by the urban mass media. I have expressed in public my opinion about Mylonas: weight against the planet and barrier of winds, like all the capitalists.

Q: - What is considered from you as a key element of the indictment against you?

A: - EKAM (higher special cop-army units) caught me in the act drinking raki and watching a movie of Monty Python together with Palaiokostas. Isn't it enough? There is also a ridiculous 'confession' of a guy who gets self-defeating continually. And the 'recognition' by Mylonas who presents me as tall and thin with 1,90m height when in reality I am 1,75m tall!

Q: - The Queen's Peace minister together with the mass media, talk about about interweaving between anarchist space and common criminals...

A: - In the great bazaar of policy, the inexpensive rhetoric are for nothing. The U.S.-traditional guard Bonaparte (the Queen's Peace minister) is not an exception of this rule. As for the 'crime', it is a word which together with the magic wand of the dominant ideology joints uneven social phenomena with different origins and different directions. In most cases we can talk about a special civil war. Poor people steal other poor people. On the other hand, we have the accumulation of black money with crystal clear logic of capitalism. Not missing the conscious offenders of law, descendants of the 'social banditry', but they are few. The social bandity was rooted in the sense of community solidarity inside the traditional societies. Urbanization broke down this sense and replaced it with filotomarismos (individualism, being interested only in personal survival). The criminal delinquency is the inverted image of the class / hierarchical society. It does need the mirror to live. The revolutionary action is to break the mirror. Some common outward characteristics are meaningless to their diametrically opposite contents. Besides, this identification has a clear political objective to slander action of the antiauthoritarian movement.

Q: - Last year, large protests took place in prisons in the country, where you also participated together with other antiauthoritarian prisoners. A year later, nothing has changed?

A: - Lountemis used to say: "Fascism died and was reborn on paper to life". Fascism of the 21st century is called person's reformation through imprisoning. Almost nothing has changed since last year. The same miserable conditions, the same overpopulation, the same hyper-criminalization. Before any week, even, the 'socialistic' MAT (special pigs' forces) were trained on the bodies of prisoners in Diavata jailhouse, so be prepared later to face the terrorists-protesters on the streets.

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".

A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.

To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
