While the garbage in uniforms occupied Exarcheia and the center of Athens for another night, to fulfill the dreams of Mr. Chryssochidis of a dead and safe city, our ways lead to a soft target.
The image of George Orwell’s “1984” is already reality. The internet of things connects televisions, refrigerators and other electronic devices in our homes, in order to collect our data, to monitor our habits, to transform human life into a digital algorithm. They call it a Smart City, we call it a totalitarian society.
A company that sells the hardware of the Smart City and also its ideology, is the security company “Alphacom”. Alphacom not only provides this, but also CCTV technology and other equipment for the rich and for the authorities, to protect their interests. And last but not least, Alphacom is selling and installing the products of Tyco. Tyco is a multinational company which produces surveillance technology for prisons worldwide and other security forces.
In the early hours of December 2nd, we torched an Alphacom van in front of their shop in Kaisariani.
This fire was lit for anarchist prisoner Dino Giagtzoglou, who wrote a letter to the International Meeting against the Techno-Sciences in Italy (July 2019) in which he mentions many reasons to fight this part of the capitalist power system. We welcome the upcoming research about the players in this game.
This fire was also lit for Loic, still in prison in Hamburg.
Finally, this attack was made in solidarity and sympathy with those persecuted for the Revolutionary Self-Defense case, as well as those persecuted for good intentions, kinship or friendship. Our strength and solidarity are superior to their politics and repressive operations.
Strength to the comrades Michailidis, Athanassopoulou, Chatzivasileiadis, who are in illegality.
