Από τους δρόμους της πάτρας για τον Τάσο Θεοφίλου…



Πανό που κρεμάστηκε έξω από το παράρτημα, καρτολίνες και αφίσες σε διάφορα σημεία της πόλης.



[Nota de Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras: traducimos y difundimos información que había estado circulando en griego e inglés hace unas semanas respecto a la detención de María Theofilou, hermana del preso anarco comunista Tasos Theofilou y pareja de Giorgos  Petrakakos, arrestado en septiembre en el marco de las detenciones por el caso de la organzación Lucha Revolucionaria. Esta nueva detención se sitúa como parte de la represión y la persecución vengativa contra familiares, amigxs y personas solidarias con anarquistas en prisión, jugadas del poder que también han sucedido en Chile, España y otros lugares. La situación de María T. se suma a las medidas restrictivas con que aun permanecen, luego de su excarcelación, la madre de dos compañeros de CCF y la esposa de uno de ellos.]

Female relatives and partners of prisoners are still being targeted by the Greek state in an effort to isolate prisoners and repress solidarity movements. Women are seen as an ‘easy target’ whose repression facilitates the prevalence of a climate of fear impeding the struggles against injustice.

Publication of anarchist-communist Tasos Theofilou book: 32 Steps or reports from the house of the dead – Greece


Publication of Tasos Theofilou book:
32 Steps or reports from the house of the dead

Introduction note:

Prison is not only incarceration, pan optic surveillance, sensory
deprivation and the always present violence from above or from bellow.
Prison is not only the constant addiction to the sound of a heavy door
locking and unlocking. It is not only the endless rock of the yard. It
not only the use of smack to oppress any intention of revolting against
the brutality. It is not only the extreme poverty of the lumpen
proletariat, as well as the ostentatious wealth of illegal capitalism,
which exist to remind that class stratification is not absent even from
the basements of society.
