news action greece europe 5/5
In the early hours of wednesday 5th of may we decided to inaugurate the 24hour general strike by putting of use 71 ATMs in many areas of Thessaloniki (euosmos, centre, touba, ambelokipoi, pylaia, kalamaria, sukies). This action is just another small piece of the puzzle that is a part of the substantial oppossition to the calmness that exists in the functioning of society .
An action against the obvious section of the otherwise invisible, prosedure of money circulation.
An action that is easy for everyone to do (a little bit of quik dry glue and a few cards is enough to sabotage a few of these machines).
In a society such as this one, in which the relationships are described with consumerist terms, we try every moment to oppose the normality that is defined in our lives by the state, replacing this way the logic of abuse with the release of our destructive feelings. We chose to act on this day to show that for strikes to be an authentic threat to the state, a basic criteria is the interruption of production and with that, of consumtion, this way normality is blocked and the chance is given to everyone in the street to organize their resistance to those who stole their lives.
Because of the assimilation of the strikes and their transformation to another democratic right , this threat has turned into nothing more than a simple -and this only apparently- happy break from everyday life.

Soccer riot 2/5
Seven riot policemen suffered minor injuries in clashes with PAOK fans salonika on Sunday night following a match for the Super League playoffs. The supporters threw petrol bombs, rocks and bottles at the officers. Two of the policemen were hit by a car. No arrests were made.
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.
