Greece: Anarchist Comrades Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos Released from Prison

via: Anarchists Worldwide
On Wednesday, 24.07, anarchist comrades Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos, members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire were released. The comrades were originally convicted with sentences of over 70 years, which were reduced to 20. The comrades made use of the Paraskevopoulos law that was introduced by the previous SYRIZA-led government and were released after having served 8 years of their 20 year sentences.
Gerasimos Tsakalos was arrested with his friend and comrade Panagiotis Argyros on November 1, 2010. Their arrests took place after a parcel bomb was sent to a courier company in Pagrati. Five months later, Christos Tsakalos was arrested in a coordinated counter-terrorism operation.
After their arrests they claimed full responsibility for their actions and proclaimed themselves “proud members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire”. During their imprisonment in Korydallos prison, the CCF claimed responsibility for Phoenix Project actions, including the bombing of the Prison Director’s car as well as sending a parcel bomb to the former head of the anti-terrorism unit, Dimitris Chorianopoulos.

Greece: News Concerning Anarchist Comrade Kostas Sakkas

via actforfree
As an act of revenge the comrade has been transferred to the basement of the women’s prison of Korydallos in Athens  in order to attend the ongoing trial for the “Thieves of Distomos” case.
The transfer service recorded him as a prisoner to the men’s prisons of Koridallos. At this time he is being irregularly imprisoned in another prison and in a special detention regime with a ban on visits and deprivation of basic formalities, since he is typically “invisible”.
The involvement of the anti-terrorist police is evident in this event and reveals its fury towards unrepentant militants such as Comrade Kostas Sakkas by deciding on the transfer of detainees judged to be “particularly dangerous”. 

IMMEDIATE TRANSFER OF KOSTAS SAKKAS TO KORYDALLOS MEN’S PRISONS

NO COMRADE IN THE HANDS OF THE STATE

IN SOLIDARITY

ACT FOR FREEDOM NOW!
