Thessaloniki, Greece: Letter from Giannis, Kostas and Dimitra, from the dungeons of the General Police headquarters
From the dungeons of the General Police headquarters of Thessaloniki, we send comradely greetings to our comrades who once again stand in solidarity in our new adventures with the police-law repressive mincer.
We declare that we remain strong, with our dignity intact, our principles and values guiding our being. We will stand up to the new sufferings that the rulers of this world are preparing for us. Not a step back!
Terrorism is wage slavery, no peace with the bosses. Terrorists and bandits are States and capitalists. Solidarity is our weapon.
Giannis Dimitrakis Kostas Sakkas Dimitra Syrianou 16/6/19
Anarchist Giannis Dimitrakis had been arrested heavily wounded after a robbery at a branch of the National Bank in the center of Athens, on January 16th, 2006. Giannis was released in 2012. Tuesday, January 31st, 2012
G. Dimitrakis :“I was, I am and I will be an anarchist. As long as I live and breathe the journey will continue”
“My punishment is a field for fighting and conflict with authority”
“The robbery was a representative solution for my ideological and existential problems. It is the answer to the question of how an anarchist goes on. In the dilemma if I shall remain a weak-minded spectator or an active citizen I decided to participate. In the end we will win!!!!”
On Wednesday 12th of June, 2019, three of anarchist comrades were arrested in Thessaloniki, during expropriating a guarded money transport that was about to refill an ATM at the university hospital AHEPA. They were caught by cops of the counter-terrorism unit just when they were getting in their car to leave the spot.
The two comrades are Giannis Dimitrakis and Kostas Sakkas, who had already paid the price of their political choice to stand against the authorities of this world, being targeted and serving time in prison.
The third comrade, Dimitra, is accused for cooperation in the expropriation.
