On Monday night 11/7 we attacked the Patras courthouse, painting the facade and breaking its windows, in solidarity with the anarchist comrade Giannis Michailidis who is on hunger strike since 23/5, waging a struggle against state vengeance with his own body as a weapon.
The comrade, having already served about 8.5 years in prison since December 2021, is entitled to his temporary release from prison, something that runs up against the refusals of the competent judges and councils, as in essence, he does not abandon his militant identity, course and dignity, as clearly demanded by the extortionist regime imposed on him.
It is the same justice that is now avenging the comrade but also so many other militants, so many others who are in the excluded and impoverished social strata, all this prison population that is being beaten by the repressive state boot of the law and order doctrine, the new prison and penal regulations.
In the person of the anarchist comrade Giannis Michailidis, the state takes revenge on all those who stand up against the violence and the rottenness of the capitalist authoritarian world, who take a stand for struggle and action. At the same time, every rapist, every fascist, every uniformed murderer, every paramilitary, every golden boy, every politician responsible for scandals and so many others who are the children, the cogs of political and economic power, enjoy either immunity or the favour of justice.
Make no mistake, justice is and will be class-based in the capitalist/extremist world, and every cop killer like Korkoneas and those who tortured Zack/Zackie, every Golden Dawn, every Hortaria*, every Filippidis**, and so on will continue to walk with the state’s backs amply provided for them.
The militant dignity, history and the means of struggle, the ideas for a free world of equality and solidarity, the anti-statist/anti-capitalist struggle is the only way against the murderous nature of this world that spreads poverty, refugeeism, wars, inequality, misery. This is the road that comrade Giannis Michailidis is walking and we stand unwaveringly by his side.
