Arson Attack on Evelpidon Court in Athens, Greece

“They are following you secretly and openly

gangs and torturers

and they seek day and night to find you

but there is no way for them to learn

because they were never poets

the soil they tread on to worship ”

On the night of Friday February 5, we placed an incendiary device in one of the entrances of the courts of Evelpidon (specifically that of the lawyers) wanting to support the struggle of the hunger striker Dimitris Koufontinas. Attacking the central structures of the judiciary responds to a very clear political choice. The central government authority in cooperation with the representatives of the civil justice leads the comrade to death or at best to irreparable damage to his health. This political decision to assassinate Dimitris Koufontinas cannot go unanswered. Depriving even their own legal tools, they first legislate a device to remove him from the rural prisons and now they deny him the obvious, his transfer to Korydallos prison.

The whole bourgeoisie, and especially its head, greedily and vigorously seeks the physical extermination of a political opponent, whose contribution to the class struggles and the appropriation of revolutionary violence by the oppressed has deeply exposed the omnipotence of violence of the state beast and challenged it.

Their own murderous insistence must be answered with our comradely and militant commitment in solidarity. We call on every kinetic force to intensify its action and stand against the killing of the hunger striker. Dimitris Koufontinas is a link in the chain of the history of the revolutionary movement and part of our struggles. By doing so, we are telling his tormentors, blinded by authoritarian arrogance, that they will have to look very seriously at the political costs they will be called upon to manage if they attempt to kill our comrade.

Victory to the hunger strike of the revolutionary communist Dimitris Koufontinas
