ATHENS, Greece, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- Greek officials say they are offering a reward of $887,000 for information leading to the arrest of the "robbers in black."

Michalis Chrysochoidis, the newly appointed citizens' protection minister, told reporters Tuesday the robbers, identified as brothers Simeon and Marios Seisidis and Grigoris Tsironis, are wanted not only for a 2006 bank robbery but for possible links to anarchist groups accused of domestic terrorism, the Athens newspaper Kathimerini reported.

The reward offer comes days after Chrysochoidis called for the reopening of the investigation of the November 17 anarchist group, some of whose suspected have been serving long jail sentences since it was broken up in 2002, the newspaper said. The government says domestic terror groups in Greece are making a comeback.

Sources told Kathimerini forensic evidence has linked one of the "robbers in black" with a 2007 attack on a former judge's private guard and to a later shooting at an Athens police station claimed by the group Revolutionary Struggle.

Nazis in Minneapolis!

Cly1.jpgUnbelievable, Nazis in Minneapolis! Minneapolis? The home of Teamsters local 574 and the Baldies? The National Socialist Movement, who seem to be everywhere these days, are threatening to demonstrate against an anti-racist event at a local YWCA in the city. The NSM are a straight-up Nazi outfit and increasingly active and national. Under no circumstance should they be permitted by to organize in Minneapolis or anywhere else.

Minneapolis has long been a center of anti-fascist and ant-racist organizing and there hasn’t been any open fascist presence in the city in many years. The NSM know this history better than anyone and their threat must be taken seriously. For years at anti-fascist demos Anti-Racist-Action had organized the arrival of the crew from Minneapolis doubled whatever forces were already there. Well before ARA Minneapolis was leading the way on politicizing the apolitical, street fighting crews that had come together around the influx of fascists into the scene. Nazis in Minneapolis? This is a threat to every anti-racist.

If you are in that area get out there and join this demo:

Press Release: This Saturday, October 3rd, 2009, the neo-nazi National Socialist Movement (NSM) has threatened to demonstrate against an anti-racist workshop being held at the YWCA on East Lake Street in Minneapolis. The NSM has declared the anti-racist organizers “traitors” to white supremacy.

This provocation also has a wider goal: The NSM has been holding racist anti-immigrant rallies in southern Minnesota, and now they are seeking to establish a presence inside the City of Minneapolis. For years Minneapolis has been a virtual “no-go” area for organized racist activity, due to the efforts of young anti-racist organizers.

In the wake of the racist attacks in Brooklyn Park last week, the nazis’ threat cannot be ignored. They plan to bring their racist, homophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic message of division and hate right into the heart of the city. They must not go unopposed!

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".
Watch live streaming video from agitprop at

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.
