Bounty offered for Vasilis Palaiocostas (greece)

Money ... they have

While all sectors are continuing to protest against the new measures of the socialistrobber government and foreign bosses and the IMF 
are ordering the annihilation of the last gains of labour struggles ... The Ministry for Citizens' Protection today announced a bounty of 1
million euros for the capture of Vassilis Paleokostas.

From the media

Police on Wednesday set up road blocks across central Greece, stepping up a search for the country's most wanted bank robber,
Vassilis Palaiocostas, after police forensic experts said the fugitive's fingerprints had been found on the wrapping of a parcel bomb
that exploded in the premises of the Citizens' Protection Ministry last June, killing Giorgos Vassilakis, the 52-year-old aide to then
Minister Michalis Chrysochoidis.
Officers set up roadblocks in the broader region of Fokida after locating a Toyota sports utility vehicle in the village of Gravia.
Palaiocostas is believed to have been driving the car on Monday when a police chase failed to stop the vehicle.
Late on Tuesday, police issued an arrest warrant for Palaiocostas on multiple charges of murder and membership of a terrorist
group. The serial robber has been on the run since his second escape by helicopter from Korydallos Prison, near Piraeus, in 
February 2009.
  A translation of the letter sent to “Eleftherotipia” newspaper on the occasion of comardes Polys (Polykarpos) Georgiades and Vaggelis Chrisohoides jury on 2/2 on the accusations of prividing refuge to a “criminal” and being part of his “criminal association”. Vassilis Palaiokostas is on the run, after his escape with a helicopter from Korydallos prison, on Feb. 22/2009, accused for robbing banks and kidnapping industrialists. It is worth to say, he has never harmed human life, not even cop lives to avoid an arrest. On the opposite, he and his older brother (a legendary bank robber and escapee, currently held in prison) are said to have helped many poor people and communities in mainland Greece’ mountains where they come from and are often said to find refuge at, continuing a tradition of “social robbery” that blossom around the Balkans since the decline of the Ottoman Empire

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.
