Dimitris Koufontinas, fighter of the 17 November Revolutionary Organization, has been on hunger strike since January 8th, demanding to be transferred to Korydallos prison. The right-wing administration, extending the state of emergency and making it permanent, suspended its own legislation to avenge the unrepentant and militant stance of D. Koufontinas.

Thus, he was transferred from the rural prisons of Kassavetia to the prison of Domokou, with a false document that allegedly presented him as being in Korydallos prison.

Constantly in the crosshairs of the Greek and American states, D. Koufontinas goes on a hunger strike for the umpteenth time, claiming the basic rights acquired against the revenge of democracy. The hardening of the anti-terrorist regulation in the prisons in the person of D. Koufontina, foreshadows the treatment reserved by the State for the militant prisoners in conflict with the regime. This is confirmed daily by the outrageous Sofia Nikolaou with her statements and interviews, describing the state plan for the extermination of the political opponents of domination.

As a minimum sign of solidarity with the hunger strike of Dimitris Koufontinas as well as the 2 other hunger strikers Nikos Maziotis and Giannis Dimitrakis we chose to attack with paint and hammers on Thursday January 28, causing damage to the Euronet headquarters right next to Kallithea Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s cultural centre. This company is an American provider of electronic payment services, based in Kansas, which offers worldwide automated cash registers (ATMs), point of sale (POS) services, credit / debit card services, currency exchange and other online financial services and payment software. As of 2019, Euronet serves 50,000 ATMs and 330,000 point of sale terminals in 170 countries.

The comrade Dimitris Koufontinas has been on hunger strike since January 8, once again shielding his body and his life against the State’s vindictive methods.

As a minimum sign of respect for his long struggle and contribution to the revolutionary cause, as well as as a voice of solidarity in his hunger strike, we visited 3 banks in the Athens region and smashed them up.

Specifically, the following were attacked:

Eurobank – Kato Patisia

Piraeus Bank – Metamorphosis

Eurobank – N. Ionia





Incendiary Barrage in Athens, Greece in Solidarity with Hunger Striker Dimitris Koufotinas by Nuclei of Immediate Action Nucleus of Revolutionary Solidarity

We receive and distribute:

“We will organize Nuclei of Immediate Action to hit the state and capital.”

The political prisoner Dimitris Koufontinas is part of our flesh, part of the flesh of the revolutionary movement, part of the historical experience of the guerrillas of post-war Europe. A consistent and unrepentant fighter who has been imprisoned for his choice of facing the barbarity of the capitalist system under threat of weapons. Such a fighter can only find us at his side with all our hearts and strength, against far-right revanchism, against state propaganda, against the regime of isolation that has been imposed on him. He has been on hunger strike since January 8th, demanding his transfer to Korydallos from Domokos prison, where he was suddenly transferred after being kidnapped from the rural Volos prisons.

Nea Demokratia’s government is not even complying with the very law that was created specifically to bury Dimitris Koufontinas even deeper in prison. The resistance of the comrade who once again puts his own body as the ultimate barrier for a battle of coherence and individual dignity, concentrates around him all the historical, political and social meanings that define the stakes of our time.

Resistance or submission Struggle or surrender Solidarity or individualization Attack or truce

Doing the minimum possible, in solidarity with the hunger-striker Dimitris Koufontinas, but also with Giannis Dimitrakis and Nikos Maziotis who are on hunger strike alongside him, we carried out the following arson attacks in Athens last week:

At the Foundation for Economic and Industrial Research (IOBE) in Koukaki. IOBE is the official statistical pillar of BSE and is one of the main think tanks that provides information, indications and suggestions for economic policies. Neoliberal economic policies, bank bailouts, the violent redistribution of wealth at the expense of the poor have their stamp. IOBE is not a neutral scientific body as it would like to be presented. It places itself in the class camp of capital and its hands are stained with the blood of all the oppressed who have committed suicide by drowning in the despair and impasse of the capitalist crisis.

At the 3rd Tax Office in the Kypseli area. At a time when more and more sectors of society are sinking into debt and are unable to survive, attacks on state structures that represent economic exploitation are an act of opposition to economic extermination from below and, at the same time, an open proposal to building a mosaic of struggles with refusals of payment, debt cancellation and sabotage.

At the house of the General Secretariat of the coordination of government projects of Nea Demokratia, Stratos Mavroeidakou, in Ilion. He is one of the leaders in the criminal management of the pandemic, the shortage of staff in hospitals, the recruitment of police and military instead of nurses and doctors, the transformation of the response to the pandemic into a repressive method aimed at levelling the social body and resistance. We wanted to let those in the military personnel of the Nea Demokratia party know that fear is going to change sides.

Against a police vehicle in the Petralona area. We did the obvious: attack state terrorism and its uniformed mercenaries.

Solidarity with Communist hunger striker Dimitris Koufontinas Strength to the anarchists on hunger strike Nikos Maziotis, member of Revolutionary Struggle and Giannis Dimitrakis Solidarity with the political prisoners We will be back soon…
