”There are some people for whom there should have been mountains with their names written upon them for all time. Tombstones are not tall enough..”
On March 10, 2010, in Athens the anarchist and member of Revolutionary Struggle, Lambros Fountas falls dead in an armed clash with the uniformed servants of the state, during a preparatory action of the organization.
Lambros Fountas cannot easily be categorized. He has always been THERE. He fell fighting, as a member of R.S., of an organization that came to question the end of the history of urban guerrilla struggle in Greece in a deafening way. Where the broader radical movement fought with all its force so as not to internalize the imposed defeat of the revolutionary struggle by all means. The burial of the revolutionary perspective. In this repression and media delirium, R.S. with its upgraded operational capability and its anarchist-theoretical elaboration raised the bar for revolutionary organizations.
Lambros died with a gun in his hand, just as he lived: standing up, fighting for a human society of equality and solidarity, without state and exploitation. And for that exactly we will remember the life and death of Lambros everywhere on labour protests, strikes, anti-fascist actions, in solidarity structures, in clashes with the state’s lapdogs, in guerrilla actions. At this difficult point in history Lambros will always be with us there where the barrier against the march of capitalist barbarism is built, where the dignity of human resistance is standing high, where a new world is shaping.
Lambros will always be with us in the struggles for the Social Revolution, for Anarchy.
… in the hard times you never abandoned the city, in the good times you didn’t gain any interests, in the desperate times you didn’t fear anything…
LAMBROS FOUNTAS LIVES IN THE HEART OF EVERY FIGHTER
