Letter from The Heraklion (Crete) anarchists’ assembly about what followed PIKPA squat eviction

Letter from The Heraklion (Crete) anarchists’ assembly about what followed PIKPA squat eviction on February 16th and calling for solidarity actions on March 8th.Comrades and Friends we greet you,
With this letter we’d like to inform you about the latest events here in Heraklion, to share with you some current issues that preoccupy us and present some suggestions in relation with solidarity moves.
The fact that the regime targets at the people and spaces that lay the foundations for the existence of broader brewings which will lead to its subversion is not something new. Such efforts have taken place in the past a well, yet we assess that they will be more tense in the future, at the same time with the severe repression we all suffer. Being conscious of the fact that if we didn’t run up against the invasion in PIKPA (one of the two local squats), we would count with a negative consignment for our future (and not only for our city), we decided to proceed in a chain of actions.

Among the other results of these actions we suffered the arrest of 4 comrades of ours (after a demonstration that made straight for the squat, several hours after its evacuation by the state). Two of these comrades were accused of felonious acts (and avoided the temporary incarceration under the obligation of paying a 40.000 euros’ guaranty altogether) and the other two of indictable offenses (with a corresponding guaranty of 6.000 euros altogether). For this reason we’ve created a solidarity fund for the arrested comrades.
Relying on the values of solidarity and comradeship amongst those who struggle against the requisitions of the rulers, we appeal to you, so that:
1. you support the solidarity fund the way you judge (for example, by organizing various events and happenings for the financial support of the 4). This way we ‘ll be able to live up to the enormous judicial expenses and the guaranties of the comrades, especially concerning the 46.000 euros’ guaranties, which we are to pay down within 15 calendar days from the moment of the judgment that will follow our lodge of appeal against the size of this huge sum (the lawyer lodged the appeal in 1/3/11 and the sum could potentially be diminished). The collected money will be sent to bank accounts that will be sent to you within the forthcoming days, after a communication among us takes place for this specific issue. Please give us an immediate answer by sending it to, concerning if you can financially contribute or organize some event.
2. you participate with some action and by any means you judge as necessary, in the Action Day for Solidarity with the 4, which we decided to be in 8/3.
Solidarity is our weapon

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.
