On Monday, December 9th, 2013 we carried out a coordinated sabotage of twelve ATMs at bank branches in Thessaloniki.

From the prison of Lenzburg, Marco Camenisch informs us that he has been notified of yet another rejection of his conditional release, to which he should have had access long ago, as he has already served two thirds of the sentence imposed by the Swiss courts. We spread an excerpt from his letter:

To leave no room for doubt…
As anarchists we are in constant confrontation with the State/Capital in all its manifestations; this is a no-brainer.

“From the 18th to the 25th of January 2013 I take the initiative—always weak but still an initiative—to conduct a hunger strike so as to break once again the lengthy silences imposed by repression and inaction, to raise yet another voice, a weak voice but at least one of solidarity, appreciation and participation in the [...]
CULMINE – To all those who love the revolt as a savage bush all their lives from their own roots.
In ‘our’ prison cells, perhaps with unavoidable delay, we receive news, updates, texts and communiqués for actions… We revel in them; these phrases are the lifeblood of us, they open up gold [...]
FIRE TO THE PRISONS
On the 31st of December, three explosive and bright charges were cracked at the three corners of the Angevin prison… but failed to bring down its old walls.

To my brother Mario,
Six months have passed since you were kidnapped that night out of bad luck, since you were tortured and threatened, since your family and friends were harassed.

Sunday, December 30th, 2012
The new period of repression, which was launched with the police raid in Villa Amalias and followed by the invasion in the self-managed hangout of ASOEE, should mark beginning of the end for state terrorism.

TRASH THE FASCISTS
We claim responsibility for the smashing of the branch office of the parastatal company ‘Chrissi Avgi’ on Skenderani street at the dawn of Tuesday 11.12.2012.
The specific office-shop, based on and accountable to the state directorate, is the hole in which the fascists felt safe with frequent police presence. It is [...]

We are contacting all of you due to the march that we are calling and organizing for the third consecutive year to the extermination centre of Sevilla 2, Morón, where there have been more than 25 deaths since it opened less [...]
“Persons locked up behind bars stop living, they just survive in prison. Every one of them makes their own mold into which they’re supposed to fit, finding refuge in standardized behaviours and reactions (…) one becomes simply a number, another accusatory brief scattered on an iron bed, in a narrow prison cell. A number [...]

On the night of December 24th, comrades wanted to add a bit of colour to the miserable Christmas decoration that the mayor of Athens, Giorgos Kaminis, had reserved for the city.
