Thessaloniki (north Greece): Οccupation of the “Union of Daily Newspapers Journalists of Macedonia – Thrace” building.

On Wednesday 11.10.1910 at 11.30 am, an occupation of the ESIEMTH building (Union of Daily Newspapers Journalists of Macedonia – Thrace) took place in Salonica, in solidarity with the comrades Gerasimos Tsakalos and Panagiotis Argyrou and the 5 “wanted” persons for the “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire” case.
Banners were hanged in front of the building and the entrance and after sending several faxes, 40 people left on structured marching after 45 minutes, chanting slogans and holding banners, to the Navarino square (a central square).
The text we sent by fax to several news agencies, newspapers and channels is the following:
Worthy of your role you pimps …
1/11/2010 two more comrades arrested by the pigs of DI.AS. after the ignition of a trapped parcel in a courier office in Pangrati (central Athens) and the announcement of the existence of other parcels later on. On the same day, photos of 5 more comrades persecuted for the “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire” case, were published in all media.
And the well-known journalistic vomit starts.
We know very well what you are for years now. This does not mean that we will let any bastard to earn surplus value talking about our comrades, it does not mean that we remain silent towards the patchwork of conservatism and filthy scandalmongering that we watch taking place every night at 8 o’clock, where the TV cannibalism wears its kind and the recurring Hollywood type movie comes back on screen …
Reporters of every type, from financial analysts to physiognomists, go on an unconditional TV orgy. They deposit their deepest concerns about “where does this situation lead to” sometimes with the cordial suspense for the astray children and other times with anger against the “uncontrollable terrorists”.
Everybody has a place in this journalists’ and anti-terrorism police’ feast. From the extreme right-wing to the left and progressive tabloids and from the well-known fascist assholes -direct reporters with a glorious history from the 12th floor (anti-terrorism police floor) of police headquarters- to the versatile reporters, worthy minions of their bosses. The “TV trials” come back with all the details about the lives of the comrades, statements of relatives, neighbors, employees, witnesses and of course cops, in an attempt to create the profile of the “hard core”.
Within all this, the parastate father Makis Triantafyllopoulos (famous journalist), who has surpassed himself this time, decides to criticise the other journalistic assholes from the position of an impeccable journalist. A failed attempt to stand out of the journalistic cesspool. Comedy has its limits.
And a special mention for the local “Macedonia” (newspaper and press organization of north Greece), that has a brilliant history in sneakiness and flirting with the fascist ideas, could not stay out of this sewer. The failed attempt in sarcasm of the revolutionaries do not ridicule our comrades, but those who invented it.
And one more thing.
We know that “you’re not all the same.” For every 9 bastards journalists, minions of their boss, there may be one who wants to do real research and to highlight some interesting issues. But as this one chooses to work and be part of the corporate media, the only thing he achieves is to reproduce the dominant propaganda “on democratic pluralism” and “respect of the other opinion.” Every hip documentary in SKY (Greek TV channel) or any “subversive” article in Eleftherotypia (popular newspaper) simply legitimize the other 49 pages and 23 hours of brainwashing, filthiness and spectacle.

did anyone speak of a
“…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.
