  • During the afternoon, 50 anarchists/antiauthoritarians entered the conference room of Nikopolis Hotel in Thessaloniki in purpose to cancel the "Industry 2020" conference that used to take place there. The speechers of the event were the economy's minister, the industrialist Mylonas, the head of Eurobank and other legal mafia creeps. A plakat was rised up on which was written "War against the bosses' war", slogans were spoken out and flyers were spreaded. As the comrades were on their way out of the building they threw Potatoe-Bombs* in the room and so the event was canceled because of the bad smell.

* Recipe for Potatoe-Bomb: We peel some potatoes and we put the peeled outer parts of the potatoe in a glass-jar. We add water or even better piss (it smells better with piss), we close tight the jar and let it rest for two weeks.

  • Looting mechanism at the Agricultural Bank of Ioannina town during the last night.
  • Yesterday, farmers from 12 highway and boarder-toll-stations blockades who decide independantly of any syndicalist leadership, among them also the Farmers' Antiauthoritarian Movement, decided to keep on their blockades all around middle and north Greece. The rest of the farmers with hyrearchical syndicate stractures have decided before some days to delay their actions, waiting for the government's movements.

“…A handful of capitalists
have organized a criminal gang
and have kidnapped the proletarians,
demanding for ransom
their labor force,
merchandising their human activity,
their time (which is turned into money),
their own being itself…”

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.
