Translator’s note: This sabotage took place during the ongoing movement against the “loi Travail” (the work act). The university of Tolbiac is on the frontline of this struggle in Paris. This rampage was commented in the bourgeois press, and some unions already dissociated themselves as can be seen here: https://attaque.noblogs.org/post/2016/03/26/ni-loi-ni-travail-a-tolbiac-...
In December 2010 the 11 anarchists investigated in operation Nottetempo were declared guilty of subversive association (art. 270) and other specific ‘offences’ by the Appeal Court of Assizes in Lecce.
On March 11th 2016, we cut the counterweights along the catenary of Avilés/Xixón rail line in both directions. The cuts were made at the height of the town of Villabona, locality where our comrades Mónica and Francisco are held hostage. These cuts produce a voltage drop on the line forcing a halt to train traffic, causing serious delays and economic losses. The action aims to send a warm revolutionary hug to our comrades on the occasion of the trial/farce organised by the Spanish State.
Below is the first part of the comrade’s long letter; originally published in Greek on Athens IMC (March 8th 2016).
Under other circumstances, this text would be written by Revolutionary Struggle. However, the outcome of the attempt to break out the comrade Nikos Maziotis of Koridallos prison obliges me to speak personally.
People going by the name the ‘Sword of Damokles’ redecorated the financial management office of the Greek Church in Thessaloniki today. The symbolic action, carried out with paint and a fire extinguisher, gave the priests’ walls a thick covering of red paint. The statement published after the action gave several reasons for targeting the church which throughout its history has often been one of the pillars of reaction in Greece.
On the 31st January we coordinated two actions of solidarity with prisoners. Not solely in solidarity with anarchist prisoners but with all who have been and are incarcerated by the state or who are escaping that vile oppression.
We carried out two simultaneous actions. We dropped banners in Av. Xola and Tlalpan (Mexico City): “Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners” and “Fire To The Prisons and All The Judges”. At the same time, in the south of Mexico City, we set fire to a TELMEX car, which belongs to the billionaire Carlos Slim.
In response to the international call for solidarity with trans prisoners, some anarchist individualities hung banners on various locations in the city centre of Athens (Polytechnic School, Monastiraki, Victorias Square) on the 22nd and 23rd January 2016.
Anarchist greetings to the comrade Marius Mason, long-term prisoner in the US. Fire to the normalcy.
