Attentively we have followed how the Greek state crushes demonstrations in the streets of Athens. The government of Nea Dimokratia and its judiciary have proven that in the hunger strikes of D. Koufontinas and G. Michailidis, they are ready to let prisoners die rather than give in one step. We know the videos of the lynching with the participation of police officers of Zak Kostopoulos. As well as the execution of N. Sampanis in Perama by DIAS is an expression of a ruthless regime, as is the murder of Vassilis Maggos in Volos. Blood drips from the hands of the Greek authorities.
The new junta thinks it is smart to take advantage of the August vacation period to begin construction of the metro station in Exarcheia. Their goal is to destroy every social base and occupy every place of resistance with troops. The evictions of squats in Thessaloniki and the police invasion of the university there have not escaped us either.
Everywhere the Greek state encounters resistance from parts of society. We want to support this resistance in order to bring down the project of ND. The system of ND, its judiciary and its cops, is the state of rapists. The release of rapists and the simultaneous attack on a feminist demonstration in July in Athens, symbolizes the values of Mitsotakis’ government.
At the same time, the killings at Greece’s borders continue. In league with FRONTEX and mercenaries, Greek authorities are responsible for the daily deaths at the gates of the European fortress. Continue reading “Berlin, Germany: Arson attack on a vehicle of the Greek Embassy”
We use simple means to sabotage the enemy’s infrastructure. That the car rental company Hertz is an enemy became known not only after an attack on their branch* and further fires of their vehicle fleet in Athens. Not only the Greek police is equipped by Hertz with vehicles at preferential conditions, but also in other states active and former cops and military are supported according to self-advertisement.
Hertz is one of the companies that force the constant need for mobility. Everything and everyone must always be immediately available everywhere. Delivery services, rental vehicles and Uber now dominate traffic in cities. Along the way, they create data collections about moving things and people for the police’s tracing computers, Hertz also by filming drivers while they drive.
In the social war and in the war state against state, we stand flagless on the side of the oppressed against the oppressors and Hertz stands on the side of power, sometimes under the Greek flag in the jeeps of OPKE, sometimes under the US flag on the trucks of the National Guard or under the flag of capital on their vans, with which they profit in Germany from the compulsion of the citizens to constantly move to another place from expensive apartments.
On the night of May 25, we set fire to a Hertz truck in the northern Berlin district of Reinickendorf as a minimal sign of our solidarity for Giannis Michailidis, who has been on hunger strike in Malandrinos prison since May 23.
We also wish Lina, who has been in pre-trial detention for 18 months, much strength and freedom.
At the same time, our action is in the framework of similar acts around the world that burn to ashes everything that can be useful for the war.
… until the destruction of the last cage. (A)

On September 17, 2021 there was an attack with Molotov cocktails on the police station of the Property Protection in Tiergarten (Thomas-Dehler-Straße). We expressed our irreconcilability with that institution, in whose hand people are injured and murdered every day. (Link to the letter and the message from the police report: https://chronik.blackblogs.org/?p=14967)
After some months have already passed, we want to comment again. On the one hand, because this attack was little noticeable or was hardly taken up. On the other hand, because we want to explain the method we chose to make it accessible and imitable to all.
The area of the property guards (small explanation see below) borders on three sides directly on the extensive Tiergarten and is accessible only by a street in a small quarter, which ends shortly after the entrance to the guard for cars in a dead end. There is a one-story building and two parking lots on the site, where 1-4 cars are parked, depending on break and shift times.
One of the goals of our attack was to ignite the parked cars with the use of Molotovs. It was clear that there would be several cops in the building at night. To scare them with our sudden appearance from the darkness was another goal. We were also concerned with showing that their infrastructure was vulnerable to attack at any time and when they were not expecting it.
However, we did not take into account that the cops inside the building could quickly put out the fires on the cars and thus keep the material damage relatively low. Since there is a fence around the police station and the windows of the building provide a good overview of the small area, we could not get close to the cars and therefore decided to use Mollis as a method, which is actually more suitable for keeping cops at a distance than for causing large-scale damage to cars or buildings.

„The coming change can only come through a revolution, because the possessing class will not allow a peaceful change to take place; still we are willing to work for peace at any price, except at the price of liberty.“
„We are carrying a new world in our hearts, and this world is growing right now right here“
„What the eye sees, the hand holds. The inflammable material of property explodes the flame of revolution“
Very often we easily claim to be against capitalism, but we sometimes lack to truly think what capitalism means. Lost in the abstract fight against the insatiable beast, we forget how real it is.
For ages the arrogance of the rich and the people in power to proclaim exclusive domination upon our lives has been increasing. Controlling our time towards labour, they want to appropriate our emotions and social relations. Tiredness is no longer part of us, but the duty of our weekly hours. The same hour count that erases our desire for leisure time with friends and beloved ones. It is this duty that pushes our bodies and with them our first space of enunciation into the capitalist hands of the state and their servants. Connecting our lives into the most intimate weaving with property. Establishing the prison of binarism as an absolute truth and classifying some bodies and behaviors as more valuable than others.
Private property as we know it, the one we know in the capitalist system in which we were born and raised and which is therefore perceived almost as something „natural“, actually dates back a few centuries ago. It is only since the 17th century common ground that property is a fact of nature and an inviolable right of every citizen. Today, private property is considered in all countries a true sacred and natural right, absolute and inalienable, necessary and inviolable, worthy of being protected by the force of ideas and protected by the force of arms. Wealth has become an absolute good, and capitalism the best of all possible worlds. Continue reading “Putting the system of property in danger- Anarchist Block 1st of May demo 2022 Berlin. EN/DE”
On the morning of the 09.03.2022 cops raided an apartment in Reichenberger Str. in Kreuzberg as part of an ongoing investigation. They had a search warrant for the residence of a comrade who is accused of participating in violent acts against cops in front of our house on June 16, 2021, which was actually the fight against the eviction under the pretext of fire-security. The charge is „very serious case of breach of the peace“ („besonders schwerer Fall des Landfriedensbruchs“). This investigation and warrant is claimed to be based on video identifications by 2 cops from the LKA 641 (PMS). The cops had a warrant to search particularly for clothes, yellow gloves and electronic storage and communication devices. It seems to be the standard to always confoscate electronic devicesno matter the context, so remember to always encrypt all your media and don’t keep anything unneeded around. https://de.indymedia.org/node/179053 [link is dead right now, copy on kontrapolis here].
On June 16, 2021 some hours before the establishment of the „red zone“ by the cops in our street, friends and comrades in solidarity with Rigaer94 blocked the streets in front of our house with burning barricades. The solidariansstayed behind the barricades and occupied several roof corners to defend until the cops had gathered big forces including a water canon and an armored vehicle and surrounded the entire neighborhood. This fight on that day underlinedfor us as a house what a solidarity movement can achieve within moments of state attacks such as the „firesecurityissue“ on June 17, 2021. We defend the legacy that these days left to the struggles by proving the fact that the state indeed is vulnerable and that the political structures are able to counter the attacks on their spaces and ideas. Continue reading “Berlin, Germany: Rigaer94 – Never Gonna Give You Up – Solidarity with the accused comrade from the raid on 9.3.”
Wednesday night, March 23, we set fire to a car of the company SPIE in Prenzlauer Berg. SPIE participates internationally in the construction and operation of prisons and other facilities with the goal of total surveillance and control.
Educational institutions, parks, transportation infrastructure, and consumer miles become places of discipline under the electronic eyes and sensors of a mix of private and state security systems. Where people could organize and shape their own lives, where they could resist and simply take what they are not granted under capitalism, companies like SPIE are contributing to the technological assault. Too little is said to the enemies of freedom. Let’s burn down their cars, let’s paralyze their infrastructure!
With this action we declare our solidarity with the persecuted defenders of Biologico and the ungovernability of the University of Thessaloniki, with the imprisoned Thanos Xatziagkelou, Georgia Voulgari, Panos Kalaitzis and Dimitris Hatzivassiliadis.
With Ella and Lina in the focus of German repression and Claudio Lavazza under the control of the French prison system. With all persecuted fighters around the globe.
Disgusted by the 2G+ ID checks of the remaining scene locations and the usual hollow weekend rituals of Friedrichshain’s Südkiez, we wandered through the night. When we became aware of a vehicle of the enemy, happened what had to happen:
In the night from Saturday 29.1. to Sunday 30.1. the Ordnungsamt patrol in Kreuziger Straße was beaten in, marked and flattened.
Why the Ordnungsamt sucks? They mack on our streets and squares around, attack cyclists, dog lovers and parking violators and are significantly involved in the expulsion of homeless people. There are a thousand reasons.
We have considered whether a letter for this act is needed at all. Because actually it should stand for itself. We are convinced that in this city again and again people spontaneously (or organized) use the nights to break the things that break us. And just do not see the need to publish this or maybe just do not think about it.
However, we have also noticed that this is becoming less and less in these times. Also because the press drives a strategy of concealment and invisibility. The fear that we will see and motivate each other is too great.
We still don’t see the need to publish letters for every action. Nevertheless, we do it, because we are simply happy that this ‘shitty’ Ordnungsamt patrol can no longer drive through our streets for the time being. It doesn’t take much to throw a spanner in the works of the repressive apparatus. And in phases of isolation, when we meet less often to exchange observations, we fall back on communiqués like this one. By the way, the car was on the premises of the local VW dealer for inspection. Volkswagen is a snitchy cop friend the world over.
Biologico is an occupation that existed for 34 years in the largest university in Thessaloniki and was evicted New Year’s Eve. There was a call for an international Action Week from 10 – 17.01! We are happy to answer this call, because we also see the city as a field of conflict and recognize the need to create and defend liberated spaces.
Last night (14/15 January) a vehicle of the company Securitas was destroyed in solidarity with the evicted Biologico. We found it in Berlin-Friedrichshain in Zelle Street, the company logo with an (A) and the name of Biologico was sprayed, all tires were slashed and all windows were smashed. So this patrol can rest for now in the workshop instead of participating in the daily manhunt.
The eviction represents the increasing authoritarian control of the Greek government over the universities. The government wants to create an educational environment free of contradictions, where there is no room for self-organization, through surveillance and the permanent stationing of cops in the universities in the future. Therefore, authoritarian surveillance must be smashed, whether by fascist states or by “security” companies!
Securitas is a company with a long tradition of guarding prisons, borders, public space, controls in means of transport, suppression of migration and defense of the elites. Active also in collaboration with the Turkish dictator Erdogan, Securitas has long been under attack worldwide.
From Berlin to Greece, abolish the police and their servants!
On November 1st, Giorgos Zantiotis, was murdered in police custody in Wuppertal.
This is one of many deaths at the hands of the police.
We consider anyone who collaborates with this authoritarian and murdeous institution to be an acomplice.
We will not let Giorgos death unanswered. That is why tonight we attacked the advertisment company Glow (Gitschiner Str. 61), which does legimate the cops with their propaganda, and the BWK (Cuvrystr. 34), which offers courses for wannabe cops.
We will not let the police and their acomplices continue to claim innocent victims.
We will not rest until the police ceases to exist.
Cops, pigs, liars, murderers.
Giorgos, it was murder!
Am 1.November wurde Giorgos Zantiotis in Polizeigewahrsam in Wuppertal getötet.
Sein Tod war einer von vielen durch die Hände der Polizei.
Wir betrachten jeden, der mit dieser authoritären and mörderischen Institution kollaboriert als Kompliz*innen.
Wir werden Giorgos Tod nicht unbeantwortet lassen.
Darum haben wir heute Nacht die Werbeagentur Glow (Gitschiner Str. 61) angegriffen, die mit ihrer Bullenpropaganda die Bullen legitimieren, und die BWK (Cuvrystr. 34), die Kurse für Möchtegerncops anbieten.
Wir werden nicht zulassen, dass die Polizei und ihre Kompliz*innen weiter unschuldige Leben nehmen.
Wir werden nicht aufhören solange es die Cops gibt.
Giorgos, das war Mord!
