anonymous communique:
"'GREEN NEMESIS' PROJECT
I. SILENCE IS NOT GOLD.
We break the silence. Our life looks like a frozen product ready to be sold. We live in the concrete metropolises of your civilization, we submissively execute the orders of the managers, the bosses, the superiors, we operate like programmed robots, we breathe the polluted air of your factories, we wander and die on the high speed highways of your commodities, we believe in the false avatars of wealth, we desire what the advertisements command us to desire, we fall in love via screens, we communicate via keyboards, we imprison ourselves inside walls and storefronts, serial numbers and barcodes. That's it… We break free from your prison. We are aware of the fact that everybody talks today about the financial crisis' curse. The preachers of politics are attempting to rectify the numbers, to improve statistics, to invent the social formulas of treatment and promises of salvation.
Nobody mentions, however, that economy, the domination of wealth in social relationships, is an achievement of civilization that you taught and fed us with, all these years.
Meanwhile, nobody seems concerned about the murder of nature, the torture and killing of the animals and generally about the extermination of the human being itself caused by the totalitarianism of science of technology, its laboratory experiments, the nuclear energy, the radioactive 'accidents', the GE products, the cannibalism of massive meat production industry, the pollution of the oceans, the chemical weapons, the genetic manipulation, the deforestation…
For the time being, we will not comment further on these. We only create the challenge. We will soon return to talk publicly in order for a dialogue of actions to be opened.
For the time being, we used the enemy's tools against it. We fed civilization with the poison it produces.
II. SABOTAGE TO CONTAMINATE THE COMMODITIES OF MASS CONSUMPTION. WAR TO THE MULTINATIONAL MURDERERS OF COCA-COLA AND NESTLE.
It is one of our objectives to damage the consumers' blind trust to the products which the multinational companies serve to us. We damage these companies' financials as they will see many stacks of their products being withdrawn from the market.
Our desire for action is followed by the need for strategic planning.
We firstly thought of executing a direct action operation against the factories based on Greece where products of these multinational companies are packed, stored and are propelled from. However, the planting of incediary or explosive mechanism would not bring a result as significant as we would like.
Puzzled by this, we decided to try a method which has never been used in Greece before. Our action is multiform and me employ every measure and sabotage technique available as part of our struggle for total liberation.
So, we thought about executing an innovative operation of sabotage which would practically force all the consumers to boycott these products.
We will pollute the products of these companies with hydrochloric acid and put them back on the super markets' shelves. So, we warn the consumers to fully avoid buying those products.
This way we provoke a boycott, not begging for the consumers' 'sensitive ecological consioussness' but based on the decisiveness of direct action instead. Our goal is not, in any case, to harm someone who might consume these mass production commodities, that's why we send this claim of responsibility before we start placing these products back to the shelves.
Specifically, we send two envelopes, one for each of the following mass media: the first is Zougla.gr website and the other one is Espresso newspaper. The reason why we choose mainstream media is the nature of our action itself and not some kind of sympathy towards them. We know very well, that the mass media is an indispensable part of the system we fight against.
Since it is not our goal to do harm to someone unsuspected who could consume these products, we hold responsible the two above-mentioned media for the immediate publication of our video and the whole text claiming responsibility without any kind of censorship. Otherwise they will turn themselves into perpetrators and abettors of the poisoning and possible death of any unsuspected person, which might fall victim of their economic deals to satisfy the multinationals – giant customers of theirs (sponsorships, advertisements). Of course, something like that will not be forgotten and we will act accordingly against the persons responsible for those media.
In the envelope that we send to you there is 1 USB stick and 1 bottle of soda. The USB contains this text as well as one video that shows in detail the procedure we followed to sabotage these products. The bottle is being sent to verify the credibility of what we say. It is identical with the ones that we will place back to the shelves and contains exactly the same quantity of hydrochloric acid that we will insert in the others. All of them will be sealed like new, with their safety caps, just like the other regular COCA-COLA and NESTEA products. Have the bottle analyzed to a chemistry lab to verify the credibility of our warning. In the video we send to you, we have digitally erased the serial codes on top of NESTEA caps, as well as other hints that could help the companies identify the product lots that have been infected. This way they will not be able to contain the damage by withdrawing only these specific lots, instead they will be force to withdraw all of them during the period of our action. Four days after we have sent these envelopes we will start placing the infected products back on the shelves. Our action will last exactly 10 days. The choice of this period is not random. On the contrary, these are the days during which the profits of these multinationals soar. So, for 10 days, we will place back 63 plastic 500 ml bottles of Coca-cola light and 42 plastic 500 ml bottles of various flavors of NESTEA. Our action will take place in the metropolises of Athens and Thessaloníki.
The bottles will be placed back to all types of stores selling these products. All of these bottles contain 100 of hydrochloric acid solution.
We chose hydrochloric acid because at this proportion the colors of COCA-COLA and NESTEA remain unchanged, in contrast with other substances like chlorine etc.
As shown in the video we used a sharp metallic object to remove the caps, maintaining their safety intact. Then we took out 100 ml of each product and inserted 100 ml of hydrochloric acid. Finally we put the caps back carefully, so as not to break the safety. So we have infected COCA-COLA and NESTEA bottles with no signs of breach. We say it again to make ourselves clear. Our goal is the withdrawal of these products by the companies for as long as our action goes on. We ask everyone to completely avoid these products so as not to create any danger for his/her health.
Our goal is economic sabotage, not the poisoning of any unsuspected person.
Now that we made ourselves clear as far as our action is concerned, we will take some space to explain the reasons why we chose those two multinationals.
It is a fact that we live in the era of information. The things that we will briefly mention are neither state secrets nor hidden knowledge. They are facts that anyone can learn about through a simple search on the internet, where all the information can be obtained. What we lack is the intention to ask ourselves about what is going on around us, how do we live, what it is that we eat and drink, what do we finance with our spending. It is a fact that we live in the era of the multinationals' dictatorship. Their penetration into every aspect of our life is clear. No matter how many different names they present to us, it is a fact the the economic interests of a few dozen of multinationals make the world go around. In particular, 10 companies have overwhelming control over the world food market. Behind thousands of different labels some multinational giants are being 'hidden', not only controlling our desires but also creating them and guiding them according to their strategies. All these might sound too distant, without the harmless aesthetics of emotional documentaries and close-ups to starving children, without the accompaniment of some dramatic music. But they are true.
To be more specific…
III. DEATH IN A BOTTLE.
COCA-COLA is a product first made at the end of the 19th century in the USA. It is, from an economic point of view, the most valuable brand in the world. It is the company that managed to create, for commercial purposes, the stereotype of a Santa Claus dressed in red, and that's the image that everyone has now in mind. The company’s history is dirty and the same goes for all multinational companies. It had an excellent cooperation with the Nazi Germany and Hitler, bulding factories there, before World War II begins.
Its cooperation with the apartheid regime in South Africa was excellent as well, for many years, showing no interest, not even as an excuse, about what was going on there. It operates hundreds of factories around the world and is known for the inhuman treatment, as an employer, towards thousands of workers. It is responsible for the murders of combative syndicalists in Colombia and Guatemala. In China it cooperates with the regime and makes profit out of forced labor, using prisoners that are forced to work inside prison. More over, it is one the 12 most polluting companies in the country as far as the environment and the aquifer are concerned. In Mexico it has polluted huge areas with industrial waste as well water sources used by indigenous people. In El Salvador it takes advantage of 10.000 working children harvesting plantations to produce sugar for its products. In India its dozen of factories are polluting huge water resources consumed by the locals, and the same happens in Kenya, while 1.4 billion people have no access to clean water. Multinational companies like COCA-COLA and NESTLE make 60 billion in net profit selling bottled water. COCA-COLA has used genetically modified organisms to produce ingredients for its products. There have been hundreds of cases where COCA-COLA products coming out of the factory contain poisonous ingredients.
It is no coincidence that in Greece, some time ago, 100,000 bottles of COCA-COLA were withdrawn, because they contained herbicide in large amounts. Another incident that received small media attention, although a public prosecutor intervened in the case. However, another COCA-COLA batch, which was packed in the factory located in Crete, was also withdrawn due to the detection of foreign elements inside the bottles. Obviously one of the biggest multinationals in the world, which provides money for all massive media through advertisements and sponsorships, makes always sure, that these withdrawals will happen secretly, in order to avoid the image of its products being damaged. We are not naive enough to think, that the succinct reference of some of the thousands of bloody incidents, which are intertwined with the history of COCA-COLA, will capture the filth of this multinational in its fullness. We just give some food for thought, so that everyone can ask themselves, what is hidden behind the most famous plastic bottle in the world. How much human and nature exploitation can fit in there…
NESTLE is a multinational company, based in Switzerland, which began operating in the beginning of the 20th century. It employs about 330,000 workers and it is the most profitable company in the world. It owns 450 factories in 80 countries and thousands of smaller companies, bought throughout the last century, belong to it. NESTLE is also the main shareholder of L’OREAL. That is, of the greater cosmetics firm, entangled in thousands of cases of torture and killing of animals during experiments on 'aesthetic beauty'. NESTLE, has been targeted by various organizations, which accuse the company of having committed one of the biggest crimes ever committed by a food company. It is held responsible for the death of 1.5 million children in the Third World every year, due to its commercial manipulations and moves. To some this may seem too much. We will explain this briefly and at the same time we urge you to check the dozens of relevant articles in the internet, where everyone can find these clues.
These children's deaths are caused by the systematic discourage of the use of breast milk by the infants' mothers.
Using vast amounts of money, which are presented as sponsorships and donations, NESTLE, 'convinces' doctors to promote its own breast milk substitutes. This tactic, which is applied to various 'underdeveloped' countries, results in many people preferring NESTLE's products, considering them to be safer than breast milk. In these countries, however, the water resources are often contaminated. Thus, NESTLE's products are dissolved in water, which is unsuitable for infants, causing ultimately death to many of them. A strategy, which exploits, for profit's sake, the lack of knowledge and human misery, becomes the moral perpetrator for millions of child deaths.
Apart from these, NESTLE is the company, which officially uses genetically modified organisms in its products, in the whole USA. It's a company exploiting more than 300.000 children worldwide, by employing them to work on its cacao plantations. It's the company behind numerous food scandals, like the most recent case, where contaminated horse meet was detected inside its products. This company is also entangled in a scandal, where melamine was detected inside milk packages in China, in 2008 and also in a scandal, where the deadly E.COLI bacteria was detected inside its products in USA, in 2009. This company also uses, among other large multinationals (PEPSI etc.), ΗΕΚ 293 ( Human Embryonic Kidney 293 cells). SENOMYX, a company cooperating with NESTLE, selectively uses cells taken from unborn fetuses, which are results of abortions, in order to create isolated flavor receptors and to enrich its synthetic and plastic products. This means, that they promote the use and the consumption of human cells, taken from the kidneys of unborn fetuses, as taste enhancers.
Beyond that, one of the main reasons we chose NESTLE, are the innumerable experiments they do on animals, especially in order to produce NESTEA.
They use lab animals, in order for the beneficial effects of tea to be scientifically proved. In this way, they conduct dozens of experiments on animals, which they afterward kill. In one of these experiments, they inject toxic chemicals into the bodies of lab animals, in order to dissolve the cells that produce insulin, causing them diabetes. Then, they force feed them with tea ingredients and record the effects before they kill them.
In another experiment, they cause brain damages to lab animals. Then, they force feed them with green tea ingredients to record these effects too. In order to make the scientists' job easier, they stimulate lab animals using electrocution, while they are placed in dark cages. They kill and torture in dozens of ways and all this because these experiments allow them to claim that NESTEA benefits the consumers' health. So many souls suffer, in order for the consumer to be convinced that the product has beneficial effects. Sick people called scientists are behind these experiments. The only thing they deserve, is a bullet between the eyes.
But, as we said, we do not want the role of a simple recorder of the morbidity of the scientific minds and the strategy of these multinationals. Our goal is sabotage and destruction by any means, for total liberation. We break the stereotypes. Being actively involved and attacking at companies, which exploit nature and the environment, is not a fashion. We are not 'sensitive' individuals denying violence, like hippies and pacifist environmentalists. We dislike such passive individuals.
Violence is an integral part of our life and destruction is not just a revolutionary action. The insurrection through violence, is the increase of pleasure in our life. We are part of a new anarchist current of thought and action.
We use our imagination to create the nightmares of this civilized, murderous society. We don't seek popular support for our actions. Of course, the society as a whole will never be uncritically our target, but this has already been clarified in the writings of dozens of our cells throughout the world and by our comrades of FAI and CCF, who are imprisoned worldwide.
IV. PROJECT 'GREEN NEMESIS'.
This action marks the beginning of a new project of coordination of informal affinity groups and FAI cells, under the name 'GREEN NEMESIS'. We call comrades and direct action cells from all over the world to conspire and coordinate, in order to avenge and sabotage companies and individuals, that with their actions exploit the environment, wild life and nature. All means are welcome.
For us, the best tactic is to attack with paint, fire and bombs at factories, power plants, and genetic laboratories. To sabotage the smooth circulation of goods, that builds the dictatorship of the multinational companies – killers and to spend our bullets on their managers.
With 'GREEN NEMESIS' project we mark the beginning of a dialogue of praxis, on the perspective of New Anarchy and the anti-civilization tension. We make criticism to the ideological brakes of the respect for the human life (even for the one of our enemies) that possess some ALF cells worldwide, in order to abolish them. For us, our attacks shouldn't be limited in destroying building infrastructure. Those who poison animals, should be executed with the same way. We should feed them their poison. Overall, it is important not to neglect to target the physical existence of the institutions (managers, scientists, law advisers etc.) So, 'GREEN NEMESIS' project is a moment of connection between parallel paths of struggle. It is the meeting point of anarcho-nihilists and anti-civilization eco-anarchists.
Away from romantic ideals and pleas for ecological rights, new anarchist guerrilla is the art of the potential.
Because the war against the exploitation of nature doesn't mean the passive boycott by alternative consumerism. Neither a vegetarian diet for health purposes or because of a hypocritical sensitivity for animal slaughter. It means attack and destruction of every company that destroys the earth, human, animals and nature.
Ecological conscience is a masked lie, when divided form new anarchist urban guerrilla.
FAI (Informal Anarchist Federation) opens up a new perspective, inviting the comrades of the anti-civilization tension and the direct action cells of ELF and ALF to perform a general international revenge and attack against the ones, who murder our lives. Through the international cooperation and coordination of FAI, we move invisibly through the techno-industrial metropolis and we become more dangerous…
Every action, that will be part of 'GREEN NEMESIS', will be another contribution to the conversation we start. A conversation for the creation of the anti-civilization tension within the circles of FAI and the Black International of the anarchists of praxis.
This is only the beginning…
Until the liberation of us all…
We dedicate this action to all FAI and CCF cells around the globe. Our action is also an answer to the international solidarity call for the comrades Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar. The comrades are held captives in Spain, accused for bombing attacks.
We send our solidarity to comrades Marco Camenisch and Gabriel Pombo da Silva and to the anarchist prisoners in South America.
Solidarity to Mario Gonzalez, who is on hunger strike and imprisoned in Mexico.
Lastly, in Greece we salute the 10 imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, comrade Andreas Tsavdaridis, who is a member of FAI and comrade Spyros Mandylas, who is prosecuted for the same case.
Comrades you are not alone. The sun will continue to rise… Nothing is over, everything begins now…
Long live New Anarchy
Until total liberation

February 26, 2013 - FUR SHOP, PET STORE, UNIVERSITY HIT IN NIGHT OF ACTION

received anonymously (click here for additional photos):

"In the early hours of Monday 18/2, groups of comrades made a coordinated attack against various targets in the suburbs of Athens (Greece), which represent different sides of a reality that not only we don�t take for granted but on the contrary, we plan with hate its destruction. Against the authoritarian tombstone of the general social apathy, we promote the chaos of direct action.

Unnegotiable solidarity to the urban guerilla captives of C.C.F., F.A.I.-I.R.F., A.L.F., E.L.F. and to all persecuted and fugitive comrades.

Our attacks were the following:

We painted and sprayed the walls and windows, jammed the lock of the front door and used a hammer against the front glass of two Public Service Centers (Κ.Ε.Π.).

We painted the front glass of a fur and leather shop.

We painted and sprayed the walls and jammed the lock of the front door of the central office of the nationalist student organization DRASIS-KES (ΔΡΑΣΙΣ-ΚΕΣ). We also tore apart their posters in the nearby area.

We sprayed and painted the walls and the garage doors of the home of a bastard who poisons stray animals.

We sprayed and jammed the lock of the front door of a tax office building.

December 2, 2011 - STORE VANDALIZED TO PROTEST ZOO SPONSORSHIP

Greece Puma

received anonymously:

"The last years a strenuous attack is becoming all the more distinctive around us. This of the imposition of the domination of the human species of the rest. this attack finds it's 'roots' and 'traditions' in vomiting culture of anthropocentrism that defines the human species as the ultimate oppressor who will use every means so as to satisfy his fictitious needs and also his sick pleasures. Nothing escapes from the mechanism of 'usage' in the form of utilization of all the physical and animal world. For example a stream or a free animal in nature have no self-worth unless they become drinkable water, steak on our plate, pet, attraction, exhibit, etc. The same tactic of oppression is used amongst our species. The human animal have no self-worth unless they make up a piece of a stereotype social role or a gear in capitalistic chain of production. Worker-employer-unemployed-boss, woman-wife-mother-lover, man-'family guard'-financier, legal - illegal, gender discriminations, etc. In this war we need a critical sight so as to distinguish the parallel properties of the exploiter and the one who is being exploited.
The worker who is being exploited by the boss, he is maybe exploiting his own species and at the same he is dominant against nature and the rest of the species.
The deconstruction of these rotten forms is imperative regardless where they come from and also where they are heading to.
One of these forms is also the industry of attraction, with the animal as the protagonists. Taken from different corners of the earth and placed in a few meters of 'freedom' that are provided by the mechanism of zootechnics, they receive the most harsh attack that one can handle. The violent kidnap from their native environment, their birth and also their everlasting stay in enslavement.
In the altar of profit, in conditions of modern prisons of attraction, behind the mask of entertainment, the educational training and the so called biodiversity sustainability, captive animals in the role of the entertainer - exhibit - product are ready for 'consumption' from the 'buyers' public.
Basically only a subordinate society could see in the place of their enslaved brothers a recreational or educational spectacle, satisfying in this way their alienated wants. From the above entertainment slave market our beloved multinational sponsors could not be absent, suspecting that in this game there are a lot of money involved and expanding their field of exploitation also outside of the human species.
They have chosen to sponsor the accommodation of a popular convict. His name is Puma and its sponsor is our well known Puma company.
For this reason a 'link' of this chain of stores located in Mesogeion street in Athens has become a target.
On Friday the 25/11/2011 it received a symbolic paint attack in the front displays and on the logo sign.
This attack is in solidarity for the total liberation activist Walter Bond.

Greek:
"Τα τελευταία χρόνια μία εντεινόμενη επίθεση γίνεται όλο και πιο διακριτή γύρω μας. Αυτή της επιβολής της
κυριαρχίας που επιτάσσει το ανθρώπινο είδος απέναντι σε όλα τα υπόλοιπα. Η επίθεση αυτή βρίσκει τις "ρίζες"
και τις "παραδόσεις" της πάνω στην εμετική κουλτούρα του ανθρωποκεντρισμού που ορίζει το ανθρώπινο είδος
ως τον απόλυτο δυνάστη που θα χρησιμοποιήσει κάθε μέσο ώστε να ικανοποιήσει τις πλασματικές του ανάγκες
αλλά και τις αρρωστημένες του απολαύσεις. Τίποτα δεν ξεφεύγει από το μηχανισμό "αξιοποίησης" στο πλαίσιο
αναγωγής όλου του φυσικού και ζωικού κόσμου σε αξία χρήσης. Για παράδειγμα ένα ρυάκι και ένα ελεύθερο ζώο στη
φύση δεν έχουν αυταξία παρά μόνο αν καταλήξουν πόσιμο νερό, αξιοθέατο, μπριζόλα στο πιάτο μας, κατοικίδιο, έκθεμα κλπ.
Η ίδια τακτική επιβολής χρησιμοποιείται μέσα και στο δικό μας είδος. Τα ανθρώπινα ζώα δεν έχουν αυταξία παρά
μόνο αν αντίστοιχα αποτελέσουν κομμάτι στερεότυπων κοινωνικών ρόλων ή γρανάζι της καπιταλιστικής αλυσίδας παραγωγής.
Εργάτρια-υπάλληλος-άνεργος-αφεντικό, γυναίκα-σύζυγος-μητέρα-ερωμένη, άντρας- στυλοβάτης-κουβαλητής,νόμιμοι-παράνομοι,
έμφυλοι διαχωρισμοί κλπ. Σε αυτό τον πόλεμο χρειάζεται κριτικό μάτι ώστε να διακρίνεις τις παράλληλες ιδιότητες
εκμεταλλευτή και εκμεταλλευόμενου. Ο εργάτης που δέχεται εκμετάλλευση από το αφεντικό του, ενδέχεται να εκμεταλλεύεται
το είδος του και ταυτόχρονα να κυριαρχεί στη φύση και στα υπόλοιπα είδη.
Αποτελεί πρόταγμα η αποδόμηση αυτών των σάπιων
δομών οποιασδήποτε προέλευσης αλλά και κατεύθυνσης.
Μία από αυτές τις δομές αποτελεί και η βιομηχανία θεάματος με πρωταγωνιστές τα ζώα. Παρμένα από διάφορες γωνιές της γης
και τοποθετημένα στα λίγα μέτρα "ελευθερίας" που τους παρέχει ο μηχανισμός της ζωοτεχνίας, δέχονται την πιο σκληρή επίθεση που
θα μπορούσε να δεχθεί κάποιος. Τη βίαιη απαγωγή τους από τον ίδιο τους τον τόπο καθώς και τη γέννηση τους αλλά και την δια βίου
παραμονή τους σε συνθήκες σκλαβιάς. Στο βωμό του κέρδους, σε συνθήκες σύγχρονων φυλακών θεάματος, με προκάλυμα την ψυχαγωγία,
την εκπαίδευση και τη δήθεν διατήρηση της βιοποικιλότητας, έγκλειστα ζώα στο ρόλο διασκεδαστή-εκθέματος-προϊόντος είναι έτοιμα προς
"κατανάλωση" από το "αγοραστικό" κοινό. Στην ουσία, μόνο μια υποταγμένη κοινωνία θα μπορούσε να δει στη θέση των σκλαβωμένων
αδελφών της ένα ψυχαγωγικό και εκπαιδευτικό θέαμα, ικανοποιώντας έτσι τις αλλοτριωμένες της ορέξεις. Δεν θα μπορούσαν να λείπουν
από αυτό το ψυχαγωγικό σκλαβοπάζαρο οι αγαπητοί μας πολυεθνικοί κολοσσοί στο ρόλο του χορηγού, διακρίνοντας πως μέσα σε αυτό το παιχνίδι
παίζει χοντρη κονόμα και επεκτείνοντας έτσι το πεδίο εκμετάλευσης τους και πέρα από το ανθρώπινο είδος.
Επέλεξαν να χορηγήσουν τη διαμονή ενός δημοφιλούς σε όλους κατάδικο. Το όνομα του είναι Πούμα και το όνομα του χορηγού του η γνωστή σε όλους

August 29, 2010 - TENS OF THOUSANDS OF MINK RELEASED IN UNPRECEDENTED ATTACK

Greece

anonymous communique (photo: newsit.gr):

"26.08.2010 - Heliodendro, Kastoria (Greece)
One of the biggest greek mink farms has been hit in our first night of action. All the cages imprisoning animals in 37 sheds of the farm were opened and machinery sabotaged. To let the animals out part of the fence was cut and both gates opened smashing the locks (using the farmer's tools). Two hours and half of work and we could run away along with thousands of minks (according to media 50.000 were released).

27.08.2010 - Kaloneri, Siatista (Greece)
Another mink farm was our target for a second night of action, this time near the town of Kaloneri, on a road where 10 farms can be easily seen. 8 sheds full of animals had their cages opened in just ten minutes. Before leaving we opened a gate to let the animals run towards freedom (according to media 2.000 were released).

In both cases we had checked carefully the farms to know how to organize a faster and more secure action.
With these actions we decided to hit the fur industry and especially the disgusting 'fur towns' of Siatista and Kastoria, plagued with hundreds of fur stores. Liberating animals from cages is a way to put our ideas into practice. We oppose the oppression, exploitation and imprisonment that this civilization has created for any living being, regardless of species, race, gender or sexual preferences.

In these desperate days we still strive for freedom. Eat vegan on the barricades!

A.L.F."

Greek media has reported that as many as 50,000 mink were released from cages. In an article in the Makedonia newspaper, the president of a Greek fur breeders association said that it was a "black day" for the industry. The owner of one of the targeted farms estimated his losses at 1 million Euros and said that his farm had been ruined.

THESSALONIKI, Greece � Police say break-ins at two fur farms have set more than 50,000 minks on the loose in northern Greece.

A statement from local police says the break-ins occurred Friday and
Saturday near the city of Kastoria, which is the center of Greece's
fur industry.

August 22, 2010 - ILLEGAL BUILDING SABOTAGED ON MOUNT OLYMPUS

Olympus

Olympus

received anonymously:

"About a year now there is some conversation going on regarding an
arbitrary building on mnt. Olympus at the location 'Megali Gourna',
the so called 'Christakis'.
It is built right beside the homonymous hut that serves the purpose
of an emergency shelter with it's little occupation of space and
with 7 beds.
The arbitary building is made by some unconscious locals who want
to show off their eco-mountaineering interests.
Nobody has ever thought that this building is inside the national
park of Olympus in which any action of construction is forbidden.
The ecological destruction started with the opening of a new dirt
road from the villages down below and reaches the height of 2450 m.
The primary cause of the opening was the interests of the local
livestock farmers and afterwards come the 'nature loving interests'
of the club.
And so they constructed it with rocks on the outside and concrete
slabs on the inside, with a nice wooden inside roof and
cement and stone on the outside.
They also provide fire places on the yard. One nice tourist
destination!
If the weather permits it it is crowded every week with ambitious
explorers with their wild monster-cars for a tour in the wild
nature of the mountain.
They also go there with their bikes and they even try to reach some
of the nearby summits.
But.. all of the above is illegal.
There was some reaction and fortunately quite dynamic from some
people who care but it was restricted only to paper work and
petitions.
The case has been on the radio, the tv and in the papers but they
only accomplished to get a demolition order.
This order is up till now inside some drawers of the paralyzed
power.
If this order was about the house of a normal citizen it would have
been executed immediately and with a police escort.
But in the case of this arbitary building many people have got in
hold some money for their silence, and that is for sure. So much
money that they now suffer from amnesia.
Nobody from the goverment takes the political cost for the
demolition as there are many votes in jeopardy which guide each of
the choices of our public servants.

And because nobody from the government gives any solution this
role is taken by direct action.
Not from the cops side but from the side of the saw and the crowbar!
A short visit to the building. Damage to the horizontal columns of
the roof on the inside. If it is not repaired the weight of
the snow will demolish it during the forthcoming winter.
Some damage on their nice door - which has a lock on it - some
emergency shelter it is with a locked door - and a nice informative
message on the outside wall for the visitors.

This visit is only the first step in order to wake the beast of
this rotten state mechanism so as to crawl up there and do
it's job.
TO DEMOLISH IT.

If this will not happen soon the next visit will cause great damage
in the building and will render it not habitable and not worthy for
any repair.
The more the times they repair it the more it will be damaged once
more from now on.
To close this report. Don't be in a hurry to criticize the correct
spelling of the message on the outside. The words are written in
purpose in the wrong way so as to remind you that
the political system of the 300 idiots is equally wrong.
As this arbitary building is going to be demolished one way or the
other in the same way your filthy system with which you make play
of our lives, will also be demolished.

FIGHT FROM EVERYONE FOR TOTAL LIBERATION

Pyriphlegethon kokytos"

Greek:
Ένα χρόνο τώρα γίνεται συζήτηση για το αυθαίρετο κτίσμα στον
Όλυμπο, στη θέση "Μεγάλη Γούρνα Ολύμπου�, το ονομαζόμενο ως και
καταφύγιο "Χριστάκη".
Είναι πια χτισμένο δίπλα ακριβώς από την ομώνυμη καλύβα που
εξυπηρετεί το σκοπό του καταφυγίου ανάγκης, σε μικρό χώρο με τα
λιγοστά κρεβάτια της.
Το αυθαίρετο κτίσμα έγινε από τους ασυνειδήτους κατοίκους της
περιοχής που θέλουν να προβάλουν το οικολογικό - ορειβατικό τους
ενδιαφέρον.
Δεν σκέφτηκε άραγε κανείς ότι το κάνουν μέσα στα όρια του Δρυμού
του Ολύμπου μέσα στα οποίο απαγορεύεται το οτιδήποτε.
Η οικολογική καταστροφή ξεκινά από τη διάνοιξη του δρόμου που
ξεκινά από τα χωριά χαμηλά και φτάνει μέχρι το υψόμετρο των 2450
μέτρων.
Πρωταρχική αιτία της διάνοιξης ήταν τα κτηνοτροφικά ενδιαφέρονται
των κατοίκων και στη συνέχεια τα "φυσιολατρικά ενδιαφέροντα" της
παρέας τους.
Το χτίσανε λοιπόν όμορφα με πέτρα στο εξωτερικό και τσιμεντότουβλα
μέσα, μια ωραία ξύλινη σκεπή και τσιμεντένο και πέτρα εξωτερικά.
Έχουν και τις θέσεις για φωτιά έξω στον προαύλιο χώρο. Μια χαρά
τουριστικός προορισμός!
Καιρού επιτρέποντος ανεβαίνουν κάθε εβδομάδα φιλόδοξοι εξερευνητές
με τα άγρια θηρία τους � αμάξια για μια βόλτα στην άγρια φύση του
βουνού.
Ανεβαίνουν με τις μηχανές τους μέχρι εκεί και προσπαθούν να
κατακτήσουν κάποια από τις γύρω κορυφές καβάλα σε αυτές.
Μόνο που όλα τα παραπάνω είναι εντελώς παράνομα.
Αντίδραση υπήρξε και ευτυχώς δυναμική από τους ενδιαφερόμενους αλλά
μόνο λεκτική και σε θεωρητικό επίπεδο.
Η υπόθεση έχει φτάσει στο ραδιόφωνο, την τηλεόραση και στον έγγραφο
τύπο αλλά το μόνο πού έχει καταφέρει ο κόσμος είναι να εκδοθεί μια
απόφαση κατεδάφισης.
Αυτή η απόφαση μέχρι στιγμής δείχνει να έχει μπει βαθειά σε κάποιο
από τα συρτάρια της παράλυτης εξουσίας.
Αν η απόφαση αφορούσε το σπίτι ενός απλού πολίτη αυτή θα είχε
εκτελεστεί άμεσα και με τη συνοδεία των μπάτσων.
Όμως στην περίπτωση του αυθαίρετου έχουν ταϊστεί πολλά στόματα
υπεύθυνων. Τόσο πολύ που έχουν πάθει αμνησία.
Κανείς από το κράτος δεν αναλαμβάνει το πολιτικό κόστος της
κατεδάφισης μιας και υπάρχουν εκλογικοί ψήφοι που
στηρίζουν την εκάστοτε επιλογή του κάθε κρατικού λειτουργού.
Και μιας και δεν αναλαμβάνει το κράτος να δώσει λύση τότε το ρόλο
αυτό τον αναλαμβάνει η άμεση δράση.
Όχι των μπάτσων αλλά αυτή του λοστού και του πριονιού!
Επίσκεψη λοιπόν στο κτίσμα. Πρόκληση ζημιάς στα υποστυλώματα της
σκεπής εσωτερικά. Οριακά αν δεν επισκευαστεί
θα την ρίξει το βάρος του χιονιού τον χειμώνα που έρχεται.
Φθορά στην όμορφή πόρτα τους� που διαθέτει κλειδαρία � τόσο
καταφύγιο ανάγκης θα είναι που στην ανάγκη θα το βρίσκεις κλειδωμένο
και ένα ωραιότατο ενημερωτικό μήνυμα στον εξωτερικό πέτρινο τοίχο
του για τους περαστικούς.
Η επίσκεψη ήταν μοναχά η πρώτη φάση για να ξυπνήσει το κτήνος του
σάπιου κρατικού μηχανισμού σας και να συρθεί
μέχρι εκεί και να κάνει τη δουλειά του.
ΝΑ ΤΟ ΚΑΤΕΔΑΦΙΣΕΙ.
Αν αυτό δεν γίνει σύντομα η επόμενη επίσκεψη θα προκαλέσει
τεράστιες ζημιές στο κτίσμα και θα το καταστήσει μια κατοικήσιμο
και ασύμφορο στην επισκευή του.
Όσες φορές επισκευάζεται τόσες και θα χαλάει από εδώ και στο εξής.
Κλείνοντας, μην βιαστεί κανείς να πει για τη σωστή γραφή τον λέξεων
του συνθήματος.
Είναι εκεί γραμμένες έτσι λάθος για να σας θυμίζουν ότι το πολιτικό
σύστημα των 300 ηλιθίων είναι εξίσου λάθος.
Όπως θα κατεδαφιστεί με τον ένα ή με τον άλλο τρόπο αυτό το
αυθαίρετο κτίσμα έτσι θα καταρρεύσει και το βρώμικο σύστημα μας με
το οποίο παίζετε τις ζωές μας.

August 19, 2009 - THOUSANDS OF MINK RUN FREE

According to media reports, on August 9th as many as 10,000 mink were released from cages at two fur farms near the city of Kozani in northern Greece. Despite the mobilization of local fur farmers, 3,000 mink have not been recaptured. Animal rights activists are suspected of involvement.


January 9 , 2009 -- Fur Farm Liberation Communique Released

anonymous communique:

"The night of December 14, our group trespassed on a mink farm outside Siatista, and liberated more than 1.000 mink.

We claim this action, for all the animals hit by cars, hunger and thirst, left to cannibalise each other, for the damages they may have caused to the local ecosystem. But first, the gang of fur-farmers should claim their own responsibility for the genocide they act out every day, for the brutal annihilation of hundreds of thousands of souls every year, for the innocent creatures they flay alive for being unlucky enough to be born with a beautiful fur, for the miserable conditions of captivity they force them into. Until then, we claim only the opportunity and the joy we share with these creatures to live free, some for a long time, others for short.

In the video we have published on the internet, the lack of fundamental sanitation rules is obvious. The animals feces hasn't been cleaned for ages. This isn't just the imprisoned animals problem being forced to live in a constantly polluted environment, it also raises a matter of public health. We call and challenge the state and those responsible to prove their existance and act upon the legislature, imposing the appropriate penalties.

Though we are aware that all this happens inside the hell-hole farms lawfully. Or at least we want to believe the lawful things and only happen. We call and challenge the 'farmers' to open to the public what's going on lawfully, inside their 'farms'. Just allow a journalist to go inside with a camera and have an ordinary report coming out. Show to the people you lawfully murder innocent creatures with anal electro-shock machines. Show to the people you murder innocent creatures in gas chambers. Share with us your exclusiveness in cries of agony. Do that and we will surrender to the authorities and claim our responsibilities according to the laws. What do you have to hide?

And to put an end to this fairy tail of fur keeping local communities alive as the farmers claim... 200 years ago local communities and whole states based their economy on human slavery. Apparently they had the same points with the fur farmers. But the world evolved and those that wouldn't mind that, were forced to mind it. The world keeps evolving and the fur trade finally meets with global odium. Those not minding that, will have to be forced to mind it. If you want money for your communities, bother yourselves with their environmental development. Right now, your fortunes are made of the blood of innocent souls. 10 years ago you were crying to the mass media --media of mass domestication-- claiming fur is going downwards, and you don't earn enough, you are forced to migrate and other bullshit. Now that you turned yourselves to ass kissers of the Russian riches your problems seem to be over. Beware, your problems have just started. Think upon your selections, because we'll be always in your way. When 10.000.000 children die of hunger every year, fur's niche marketing can't even touch our logic.

With the above reasons and on the occasion of our liberation action, we call everyone to found together a panhellenic (national) federation to fully ban the fur enterprises in our country. Contribute to this league by any means possible. Create cells in your area or act alone. Act legally or illegally. Organize peaceful demonstrations, spray paint slogans, destroy furs, break fur shop glass windows, invade fur farms and liberate animals. The only requirement we ask for, is the principle of non violence against human or other animals.

PS1: To whom fur farmer it may concern, to claim the EU's money pack for fur farms: Better plan on a generous insurance to cover your enterprise and don't you mind the money: you'll need it.

PS2: To mr. Bouzalis, mr Papadopoulos and the rest of Kastoria and Kozani parliament members, as well as officials of the ministries of Development and Foreign Affairs. Your concern on fur is totally opposite to ours. We hope we won't hear again the word 'fur' from your mouths inside the parliament, and that we won't see any of you in any fur-farmers event. We will be very disappointed.

Have a happy new year with lots of empty cages.

Corvus revengis"


December 18, 2008 -- Fur Farm Liberation

The ALF has claimed responsibility for the liberation of 1000 mink at a fur farm in the town of Siatista. (The area of northern Greece, including the town of Siatista, is a major manufacturing center for the fur industry in Europe.)

May 4, 2008 -- 250 Rats Liberated from University Lab

anonymous communiqu; reported by athens.indymedia:

"ON THE LIBERATION OF LAB RATS IN THESSALONIKI

The world of 'pollution', that has become a field of study for large social parts, is for others an everyday field for direct action for its subversion. Life in capitalism seems to have lost its meaning, everything seems to be predictable, known and dead before they are even realised. Without any measure, everything gains substance and value based only on the profit it produces. The System doesn't hesitate to exploit everything alive for its own reproduction, to turn everything living into a cog of its terrifying machinery. It has no hesitations to pollute the air, the food and the water of its 'subjects' in order to gain profit. Those that claim to govern us, experiment and exploit humans as easily as they do to animals.

IN CAPITALISM NOTHING IS ACCIDENTAL, THEY ALL FIT THE SAME PROJECT OF EXPLOITATION.

Every day that passes, hundreds of animals are butchered inside laboratories. Their lives are turned to one, brief time, study, on an indifferent laboratory ratio, in its best, on an intriguing reaction. Multinational companies (the same ones that drive their employees to hunger) test their products on them. Pharmacy industries and medical teams (the same that are responsible for innumerable deaths of patients) test their studies on them.

Of course, the animals are also used, apart from the evolution of medical methods, for teaching. As a part of the 'holy' plan of education, they form part of the educational procedure within the university. They are not treated as something alive, with an inalienable right to freedom, but as a component of the courses.

Willing to resist somehow the generalised exploitation of earth and the animals, a few days ago we liberated around 250 white rats from the building of the aristotle university that holds the faculties of Biology, Zoology and Pharmacy. Rats, stacked gasping for breath in dirty cages, had never felt the breeze, the only color they had seen was white, and never faced the sunlight...

FREEDOM FOR LIFE
FREEDOM FOR ALL

Thessaloniki 2/5/2008"


January 17, 2008 -- Four Rats Rescued from Laboratory

reported by activists in Greece (click here for video from the action):

"On the 15th of January at TEI University in Thessaloniki, Greece about 15 people interrupted a planned experiment on a living animal. Professor and students as well were tying to hide the fact that any experiments were going on. But pushed by 15 masked people, the professor unlocked the lab and liberators took from it 4 lab rats. After that he was punched and spit on by several people. This is just the beginning."
