According to the same sources, it was a parcel bomb that was sent to his office. The parcel managed to pass through metal and explosive detectors in the capitals safest building as they call it. From the explosion part of the building collapsed. The explosion occured when the minister's adjutant was unwrapping the parcel. He died from the explosion. Its the first of this kind of attacks in greece as there was no warning phonecall.



The text that was read on behalf of Aris Seirinidis at the concert in Exarchia square on the 25th of june against state oppression.

Urban democracy has always tried to hide its identity. The sonorous constitutional orders about freedom and equality, the pompous statements of human rights, the providence for the socially weak, even the invocation of a revolution as a founding myth, constituted their ideological nutshell, inside of which the urban-democratic state diachronically smoothed and defused the deep class contrasts,that it expressed. The periodical excerbation of these contrasts, the intensity of conflicts, the revolts, but also the innate contrasts of the capitalist system itself teared the humanistic cover of the state and revealed the feigned and coincidental character of democracy. It was the moment state oppression, as a constant threat and as a reality, recieved its position there were the rest of the manipulative machanisms had failed.
The state undressed of the cloak of the social and revealed without restrains its character, as the main tool of class authority.
Especially in regard of the greek state, its position in the world distribution, made it bring less humanitarian alibis compared to the adanced capitalist ones: from the constable and the certificates of beliefs of the post civilwar period, to the non-existent social expenses, the scimming an the fraud of the socialist management, the greek state never achieved to hide its antisocial character.
Traditionally hard for it to acquire social legalisation, the greek state finds itself today also confronting its budgetary bankruptcy. Today, that the suburban "sandcastle" of consumerist prosperity of the last two decades is shattered by the waves of poverty, unemployment seediness, raw, without pretexts, repression comes into the daily provision: on one side as a mean to manage poverty and on the other side as a mean of revenge against anyone who dares to resist. The state imprisons, mutilates, murders and pushes fighters to death.
In its vengefull fury it cannot, however, hide its panic infront of the possibility of the transformation of the generalized social rage into a social revolt.

We stand in solidarity to our hostages, we give strength to our wounded ones, honour our dead and continue!

From Koridallos prison, the ultimate expression of state terrorism, i send my fighting greetings to todays event-barricade against state oppression, aswell as Exarheia, the diachronical laboratory of the struggle for social liberation.

SANTA CRUZ -- An arsonist or arsonists set five cars ablaze early Sunday in a potentially dangerous crime with no clear motive.

Investigators are probing whether the rash of Eastside arsons is connected to recent suspicious car fires on the Westside and in Aptos.

Sunday's fires, reported between 2:50 and 3:30 a.m., destroyed BMW, Jaguar and Acura sedans, a Honda Passport and a Toyota pickup, police said. The vehicles were parked on Market Street, Grunewald Court, Branciforte Drive and Grant Street.

On Branciforte Drive, flames from the Acura leapt into a tree feet away from a propane tank. And on Market Street, a fire in the Passport came within about 9 feet of the home, police said.

"This is an unusual act of vandalism," Capt. Steve Clark said. "And it's very frightening to have someone light your car on fire in front of your house. Not only is there the costly damage to the car, but the potential for residual damage and injury."

Strength and Freedom to all comrades in the hellholes of democracy, especially strength and condolences to Aris Seirinidis for the loss of his father and our comrade Kostas.

The struggle inside and outside the cells continues...

The Polish comrade Michal Pawlak was released from prison Wednesday 9 / 6.
The release of our comrade gives us courage and strength to continue.
The Social and class Struggle cannot be imprisoned or suppressed.
We will continue until all comrades and all of us free ourselves from the prison of power and capitalism.

THE STRUGGLE Continues!!
Athens 14/6

For Comrade Kostas, father of Aris Sirinidis

Kostas was everywhere. In the street, on the side of the oppressed, the political prisoners, all those that are being chased by the state. A clean and honest presence of those that will be missed in society. This is why he couldn't accept the sad story that was set up against his son. Aris arrest, the attempt by cops and journalists to connect the 34 year old with a army robbery (besides the fact that there was proof all along that showed that he has nothing to do with it). His ten-day detainment in g.a.d.a. and his imprisonment without any evidence as "the crazy one with the sombrero and sandals" that shot against the riotcop van.

It was the last and most crucial of Kostas' struggles, who didn't see his son free.
farewell comrade.

Terminal 119 & Cafe Morgenland [ June / 2010]

Terminal 119 & Cafe Morgenland  [ June / 2010]

When the knife comes out of the bag...

"When a woman kills her rapist, then the result of this action is not that we have a murderer on one side and a victim on the other, but we have a dead person on one side and a free person on the other"

On Sunday June 6th, two teenagers, 15 and 16 years old, met up in the village of Kerkini in Serres (northern Greece) to find some money to put their plan to leave their "troubled family environment" into effect, as they said in their testimonies to the interrogator. There they met a friend of one of the girl's grandfather who promised to help them financially as long as they pleased his sexual appetites. When the two girls refused to make the deal he tried to harrass them and started touching them. The two young women, two young kids in reality that didn't act within the predetermined framework, carrying for self protection a small knife, pulled it out and started stabbing him to get him off them. The 80-year-old died. The girls were arrested and today are imprisoned after the common agreement of the prosecutor and district attorney in Nigrita police station. They are waiting there to be transferred to a juvenile prison, accused of murder and robbery since they took ten euro from him when they tried to leave.


With this article we would like to declare our unconditional solidarity to the two young girls and ask for an investigation to start in the village of Kerkini Serron because this case only came up now and this is usually only the tip of the iceberg.

Paris - Some reflections still hot from the reactionary riots in Belleville

Tuesday 23 June 2009

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

Coming back from a not very country walk, we went into the Belleville quartier in Paris. Hours earlier, a demonstration had started to denounce, in the words of the organizers: "The chronic abuse suffered by the Chinese community". The reason: Bags snatched, assault, etc. A demonstration with quite reactionary overtones, as evidenced by the slogans shouted and inscribed on the banners and placards: "Safety for Everyone", "Long live citizenship", "stop crime", French flags, Chinese and European anthems. It is not clear what violence they are talking about (having been more accustomed to the phenomena of violence within the community which will be discussed later), but we will understand later what was behind this event.

After the official end of the demonstration, the atmosphere is very hot there, people are flocking, trucks of cops arrive en masse. On all sides we hear the sound of fighting, then a torrent of violence is unleashed on the cops attacked in a melee by hundreds of unarmed people, they throw eggs, stones and glass bottles. Cars are overturned, CRS [anti-riot cops] are charged and are forced to retreat. Faced with this explosion of anti-cop violence, we almost enter the dance, but wait, out of "ethical prudence".

All of a sudden people start running. We believe that everyone is fleeing yet another load of cops, but we realize very quickly that it is something else. Demonstrators are chasing kids, that they are calling "blacks and Arabs", by throwing glass bottles. One of the kids falls down, and tries to hide under the porch of a doorway. Running to their side, we have to calm the fury of the lynch mob. They let go this time. We understand, listening to conversations: that "the cops don’t do their job, leaving thieves at large, the protesters have decided to take matters in hand and avenge themselves." We also understand that everything started from the theft of the handbag of a demonstrator by a kid in the neighborhood, then the attempt by protesters to deliver the kid to the cops, who did not want him. It is from here that the demonstrators unchained their violence against the cops. Unrestrained violence, such as one was not used to seeing. Violence to punish the cops for not doing their job well enough.
The cops decide to retreat, flooding the place under a thick cloud of teargas fired into the crowd. More than fifty cop vehicles disappear in the blink of an eye, just as the violence was beginning to reach a peak.

Clearly, the cops decided to abandon the place to let the inter-community violence unfold, while an hour earlier it was against the cops that everyone was insisting. This then led to a ballet between three to four hundred members of the Chinese community and some black and Arab kids, sometimes beaten to the ground by dozens of people and accused in a rush of being thieves, in front of thirsty journacops having smelt the smell of blood and large-titles, good scavengers that they are. But at the time of writing, nothing definite has yet emerged in the media about what really happened. We have seen some sort of makeshift militias, bringing together over a hundred Asians, to the neighbouring estate to beat up black and Arab people in a man-hunt reminiscent of the pogroms.

During the riots, we felt in Chinese rioters a fierce hatred against the "thieves". For example, after an unmarked police car was overturned, and its lights broken off, people began searching the trunk, immediately taken to task and being lynched, accused of being thieves by the very people who had upturned car. Suffice it to say that we didn’t understand anything at this point.

This hot afternoon, and the events that marked it, seem to foreshadow a civil war scenario that is developing here and there, in these times of "crisis". The attitude of the police reinforces this impression, they left the scene when they felt the anger against them was being replaced with ethnic hatred between people. We can imagine that for the prefect a good racist riot is preferable to a riot directed against the cops and other State symbols and capital (banks and McDonald’s are intact). Basically what need is there for a police presence in a riot against "offenders"? Note that every week, Chinese people are round up in dozens by the cops, to general indifference, without a single demonstration being called. Similarly, we never hear any of protest against the exploitation of Chinese people by other Chinese. That violence there, exploitation, is never denounced. Powerless and sad in the face of this shameful spectacle, we still want to express some clear positions.

This day showed that not all riots are good, despite what some a few hooligans and nihilists still believe, by their advocacy of civil war. In addition, we believe it is necessary to abandon the war between the poor, between ethnic groups and between all imagined communities, between all equally imaginary social roles "honest Chinese workers" against "Arab thieves".
The social war is not war of all against all, but the war of who has always opposed power over all those who are against it.

Again and again, we will have to fight against nationalist, ethnic, communal, religious and political cancers.

Carlo Giuliani

undefinedWe haven’t forgiven the death of Carlo Giuliani; an Italian activist born in 1978, he was one of millions of protesters who participated in the Genoa’s demos against the G8 leaders’ violence. Comrades had witnessed his assassination by Italian riot police’s Carabinieri in 20 July 2001.

After nine years, still no justice is served. Just this year, 2010, the case ‘Giuliani and Gaggio v. Italy’ was referred to the Court’s Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights. If you follow the link above, you’ll read the outraging summary description of so-called ‘Principal facts’, including: ‘As to the officer who had fired the fatal shot, the judge took the view that he had fired into the air without intent to kill and that he had in any event acted in self-defense in response to the violent attack on him and his colleagues (sequence of photos of the Giuliani’s mord here).

What does this remind us of? Statements made from Greek authorities in regard of the assassination of Alexis Grigoropoulos, which led to December 2008 Uprising in Greece. Alexis Kougias, the lawyer defending Epaminondas Korkoneas, the police special guard who shot dead the teenager in Exarchia, central Athens, in 6 December 2008, argued in court that the fatal bullet was fired into the air and not toward the victim.

Dallas Court attacked by migrant solidarity protestors

Manchester and Salford’s immigration reporting centre for people seeking asylum was attacked in the early hours of this morning by protestors. A group broke into the car park at Dallas Court where they sabotaged the vehicles used by the UK Border Agency’s notorious ’snatch squads’.

According to reports, the vans were immobilised and defaced with spray paint, while the access gate to the car park was also put out of action. Stickers reading “This vehicle has been tampered with” were left at the scene to notify staff.

In a statement the group said: “The action was taken in solidarity with detainee resistance. In the past months media reports have covered the hunger strikes in Yarl’s Wood, protests in Harmondsworth and struggles against chartered deportation flights. These are acts of resistance against an arbitrary system of control and surveillance policed by the UK Home Office and European immigration authorities.”

Dallas Court is home to officials from the UK Border Agency. The snatch squads which operate from the centre often head out in blacked-out vans early in the morning to detain those asylum seekers whose claims have been rejected. They are known for kicking in doors before the children go to school in order to catch the entire family at once. Asylum seekers are also made to sign in at Dallas Court at regular intervals, not knowing whether or not they will be detained on the spot.

When arrested, detainees are taken to detention centres such as nearby Pennine House, the holding facility at Manchester Airport, where they wait indefinitely until their cases are resolved. After long periods of incarceration, despite having committed no crime and having had no trial or sentence, most detainees can expect deportation back to the countries from which they fled.

This is the second time in recent years that Dallas Court has been targeted by campaigners seeking to obstruct dawn raids and disrupt the centre’s day-to-day activities, which today’s protestors described as a symbol of the “constant uncertainty and fear” that asylum seekers and migrants live under.

They said: “Every person has the right to fight against these conditions irrespective of circumstance, and as long as these policies exist people will struggle against them. New arbitrary controls such as the immigration cap proposed by the new government will only intensify resistance. Such resistance will centre on the frontline of border security at sites like Dallas Court and Pennine House.”

Injured in the scuffle a 29 year old man, surnamed Cardenas, who died just after 18 hours at a local hospital. In addition, eight policemen were wounded, including the chief superintendent of Station 28.
Judge Martin Lozada, called for the alleged abuse by police, came to the home the first of the victims where the wake was taking place the boy and the family of the victim severely rebuked him. "I do not mind that guy has a criminal record, I care who killed him. It's a shame this happens, the police can not control a situation with teenagers," said a neighbor in the very face of the judge. At that time the mayor came to the scene but, in the face strong public questioning, had to retreat quickly.
Meanwhile, the father of Bonefoi called on people to stop what it called "a war." "Please, let's stop the violence, let us watch over the body of my son in peace," he said.
The riots began around near the Escuela 278, San Carlos de Bariloche Five districts were affected by the riots and rioters torched a car parked outside a supermarket.
