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”
In recent times, we have seen the campus of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki turned into a release field for the murderous mania of the cops. Similar incidents of violence will become a daily occurrence in whichever campuses the university police are installed, which in order to get a foothold in the sanctuary will come accompanied by all the forces of the Greek police. This wave of repressive violence is intended to crush any possible resistance to the educational restructuring that has already been passed, namely the exclusion of the social base from higher education, disciplinary measures and the expulsion of students, cameras and controlled entry to schools, the alignment of curricula and research with the interests of capital.
In the wake of this restructuring we see more and more collaborations between Greek universities and military and police services, for whose needs research projects are carried out in the laboratories of the schools. These research projects, which concern border surveillance and the monitoring and suppression of militants, are funded by the EU and NATO to the tune of millions of euros.
In conclusion, within the framework of the European Defense Industrial Development Program, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the University of Patras in cooperation with the Hellenic Air Force and the Ministry of National Defense conducted the research project <<Project Lottus>> for the design of a drone for the protection of land and sea borders. As a continuation of this project, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the Democritus University of Thrace and the University of Thessalias in cooperation with the Hellenic Aircraft Industry will carry out the industrial production of such a drone, which will be made available to Frontex and the coast guard, among others, the agencies responsible for thousands of murders and expulsions of migrants in the middle of the Aegean Sea. Similar research projects have been undertaken by the NTUA, under the EU-funded Horizon 2020 programme. From Jason and Poseidon to Andromeda and Ingenius, the NTUA has been involved time and again with the logistical upgrade of the border guard and the army. Another project that the NTUA has undertaken is Prevision, which promises to be a state-of-the-art tool in the hands of state security. The aim of the programme is to monitor and map individuals with deviant/radical attitudes and views. The coordinator of all these programmes, on behalf of the NTUA, is the EPISY, i.e. the research arm of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.

The tanks are rolling through Europe and the war has been dominating the headlines for weeks. But we have not woken up in a new world, as the press and politicians have been trying to make us believe since the war in Ukraine. The current war is the direct result of a militarized world. It is the same dirty racist and murderous system that we attacked on New Year’s Eve. It is the same capitalist system that divides people into groups and rules over them. The very system in which some get and stay rich with arms exports. It is the same Nato that has been waging war for years and that acts in the same militaristic logic as the authoritarian pig Putin. No, the only thing “new” about the situation is that the warlike misery has moved closer to Europe.
At the turn of the year, we set fire to a company building of OHB in Bremen. The fire unfolded in an exemplary manner and destroyed an entire building. According to OHB, the jobs of 330 employees were rendered unusable for the time being. The damage, worth millions, still delights us every day. What followed in January and February was the purest propaganda show by cops and politicians.
We learned from the media that a security guard was allegedly in an anteroom of the attacked building. According to our observations, no one was in the completely darkened building at the time of the attack. We did not want to wantonly put anyone in danger. The attack was of course not aimed at this presumably precariously employed person who has to work in a multi-million dollar corporation on New Year’s Eve. We wanted to harm the arms company OHB and sabotage its war-mongering work.
That the attack was right is shown not only by the reaction of the cops and the press. Wow, what a wave! Directly the day after, the Senator for Economy, Labor and Europe from the party Die Linke has herself photographed at the scene, backs OHB and denies that OHB is an arms company that cooperates with Frontex. Politics and the arms industry in common interest for Bremen as a business location. A disgusting melange! Continue reading “Bremen, Germany: A supplement to burning offices and crying bigwigs”
Attack on the arms company and Frontex OHB supplier in Bremen
Last night 24/11/21, we attacked the arms company OHB SE on the Manfred-Fuchs square in the industrial park of the university of Bremen and set several cars on fire.
OHB SE is one of the biggest players in the field of aeronautics and aerospace with its headquarters in Bremen, but it makes its money on the deaths with which the federal army and Frontex pave their way. In 2001, OHB became one of the biggest players in the satellite and aerospace sector when it won a contract worth more than 320 million euros with the German army ‘for the development, construction, launch and operation of the SAR-Lupe radar reconnaissance system’. This was to enable the German army to obtain information through autonomous military espionage, independent of weather conditions.
In 2008, the Federal Army officially received the satellite system. OHB itself stated: ‘With SAR-Lupe, OHB has succeeded for the first time in running a satellite program as the main contractor. In doing so, the company developed and built the satellite system and is jointly responsible with the Federal Armed Forces for its operation. OHB is thus not only a supplier to the Federal Army, but also actively participates in the German warfare and surveillance machine. In 2013, the German Army again placed an order with OHB for the development and construction of the SARah tracking system. This was and is to be used by the German army exclusively for military purposes.
The German army has had an unbroken tradition of killing since the beginning of its existence. Even today, hardly a week goes by without a right-wing extremist network being uncovered in the Federal Army or tons of ammunition disappearing, only to resurface in precisely these networks. The OHB not only provides the German army with the instruments it needs to commit murder, but also actively participates in this process itself.
But that’s not all; both SAR-Lupe and SARah data have been and are being passed on to Frontex. Frontex uses the data from the German surveillance satellites, as well as from the “earth observation program” COPERNICUS, to monitor potential routes of passage, groups of people on the routes of exile, as well as the boats they use to cross the seas and flee the war and terror that Europe exports to their countries of origin, all in order to eventually attack them.
