This is a translation of a Greek text claiming the responsibility for some incendiary attacks on two vehicles of the Hellenic Post and a vehicle of a security company at Thessaloniki, Greece. This action took place during the quarantine days, in the middle of April 2020, by the “Constantly Fluid Union”. The photos are taken from corporate media. Here is the original source-link with the Greek text.
We responsibly declare that we are irresponsible
We move around insubordinate
We will not leave the fight for later
So let’s play
The night falls on the metropolis.
The roles have been consolidated, as the quarantine conjuncture builds a new routine, having passed a big period of time.
A routine being controlled and which simultaneously controls us.
Citizens are enclosed inside their homes, they open their TVs for the evening program. The question is if they ever closed them all day. Some of them, recalling the glorious days of their “freedom”, take a battle position on their balcony; they are the initiative protectors, those checking who moves around and who doesn’t. They don’t just gaze, they feed their thirstiness for control and police inspection of their neighbourhoods. Snitches, responsible citizens, good house-keepers, supporters of the military junta, alpha males; they emit the disgusting smell wafting around the city, which is empty of people and full of cops.
And of course cops experience once again the protagonist role. Dispersed on the streets, wandering around as imposing figures, they dominate the neighbourhoods and proudly check the people. Sometimes they don’t even need to do this, because they get their pleasure by the anxious glances and steps of the passengers, even if they don’t stop some of them.
The imposed routine of confinement that we experience since more than one month, has generated unprecedented feelings to us. Things that since now were considered as dystopic (reports of moving around, control of the social field in militarized terms, cops in the streets, drones), now are just reality, and other things (such us protests, posterings, gatherings) are getting criminalized.
Our hatred for authority and the complex of power in which we survive isn’t paused. We need to invent new praxises, both to achieve the pre-quarantine obvious things, and to continue causing open wounds and cracks on the existent. We try, by being close to each other, to not get seized by fear, wherever it comes from. We find targets to attack, so as not to die by tedium or in front of a screen, and simultaneously to elicit clandestine complicit smiles to our comrades.
And when does all this finish?
Probably when it is defined by those who set the game of law.
When is it crumbled up?
When some people choose to have some flammable stuff on them during a purposeless walk.
A fire can disturb the rules, disturb those who set them, because apparently some individuals intend neither to obey nor to submit. And maybe this fire is the healing element that can be channelized through the streets of the ghost-town, and through the eyes of the gloomy and almost lifeless people composing it.
On Friday 10/04, we set fire to two vehicles of ELTA (Hellenic Post), at Papanastasiou street, opposite to Ippokratio hospital.
On Wednesday 15/04, we placed an incendiary device to a vehicle of a security company at Sikies area.
We send a signal of solidarity to all those who, even if they are incarcerated and directly afflicted by the state of exemption, though they continue to have a decent and combatant position.
Our incendiary greetings to all the migrants who revolt inside the detention centres, to all the prisoners inside the Greek hellholes, who experience revengeful transfers or repressive investigations in their cells by the scum of Greek Police.
With happiness and pleasure overflowing from our eyes, we declare that nothing will remain unanswered, we will come back armed with more rage, being more rabid and dangerous.
From Korinthos to Malandrino, Thebes, Domokos, and from Paranesti to Corfu, Koridalos, Chania and Grevena: FIRE AND FLAMES TO EVERY CELL / CAGE.
RAGE AND CONSCIOUSNESS, NEGATION AND VIOLENCE, LET’S SPREAD CHAOS AND ANARCHY
Constantly Fluid Union
