We take responsibility for the placement of 2 powerful incendiary devices on the facade of the bank ALPHA BANK- ABC FACTORS at 48 Michalakopoulou Street, which is located in the same building as AXA Insurance, late on Friday night, July 1. We chose such a central point of the city attempting to send a strong signal of solidarity to Giannis Michailidis who is on hunger strike since 23/5.
In addition, we cannot but comment on the occasion of this action a well orchestrated plan to cover up the solidarity movements in the face of the striker, with the essence of this cover-up being at the very core of Michailidis’ strike. The state administration has kept the strike and many of the actions that accompany it ‘secret’, apparently aiming to de-politicise and end it in terms of defeat and retreat. We stand by the comrade’s side for his release at a time when his health is getting worse by the day. The attack at this moment is a one-way street.
THEIR JUSTICE IS A MISGUIDED DECEPTION
The historical examples of judicial decisions that throw their own children – the whole shipowning dog pack, the ecclesiastical mob, the political establishment and its most prominent straw men – into the mud are numerous. Some do not get the publicity they deserve, others are de-nominated in an attempt to disorientate public opinion and others are simply headlines, infuriating the average person with their neutral texture. Unfortunately, in recent days their judicial time has been very dense and we cannot let it go unattended. All the more so when at the same time the anarchist prisoner Michailidis is fighting at the risk of his own life and claiming the release that – again, according to their own laws – he is entitled to, making his judicial hostage-taking even more challenging.

On New Year’s Eve, in a suite of the luxurious MET Hotel, an anthropomorphic gang of golden boys, including the businessman in the catering industry Manos Papadopoulos (owner of Achillion) and the owners of Coca-cola in Greece Evagoras and Vassilis Leventis, bind the 24-year-old Georgia Bika and after drugging her, proceed to gang rape her. From the first moment she finds the strength and power to stand on her feet and with determination not to remain silent, denouncing the incident. One of the rapists (Vassilis Leventis) is arrested and released, with him a few hours later posing provocatively on social media holding the newspaper that records his exploits on the cover. Into the scene of decadence enters yet another extra of misery, the defense attorney for one of the rapists. Theophilos Alexopoulos, full of audacity, unfolds his manhood behind his professional capacity, finding Georgia Bika in the police station and verbally attacking her in order to intimidate her and prevent her from taking legal action.
This ease with which some scoundrels move, overwhelmed by the feeling of impunity that stems simultaneously from the privileges of patriarchy and the security they enjoy through the social and class status they enjoy, has always been a characteristic that has armed our thinking, our will but above all our conscious duty of revenge. We take responsibility for the incendiary attack with a low-powered device on the law office of pimp and rapist supporter Theophilos Alexopoulos at 74 Egnatia Street in Thessaloniki on the morning of 31 January.
The events through the perseverance and determination of Georgia, which stood alone against the wall of the Patriarchy, occupy the public sphere where the existence of a whole pimping ring that drugs and promotes young girls for the tastes and manliness of the economic elite is methodically revealed. A circuit that has the backing of the uniformed rapists and the bourgeois justice system to wash their faces based on their economic and social status and the political-economic interests they represent in both the legal economy and the black underground economy through the drug, arms, protection and trafficking mafias.
