"'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
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
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
financial crisis' curse. The preachers of politics are attempting to
rectify the numbers, to improve statistics, to invent the social
of treatment and promises of salvation.
Nobody mentions, however, that economy, the domination of wealth in
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
and killing of the animals and generally about the extermination of the
human being itself caused by the totalitarianism of science of
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
withdrawn from the market.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
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
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
put them back on the super markets' shelves. So, we warn the consumers
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
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
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
Since it is not our goal to do harm to someone unsuspected who could
consume these products, we hold responsible the two above-mentioned
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
deals to satisfy the multinationals – giant customers of theirs
(sponsorships, advertisements). Of course, something like that will not
forgotten and we will act accordingly against the persons responsible
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
the procedure we followed to sabotage these products. The bottle is
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
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
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
the days during which the profits of these multinationals soar. So, for
days, we will place back 63 plastic 500 ml bottles of Coca-cola light
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
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
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
world. It is the company that managed to create, for commercial
the stereotype of a Santa Claus dressed in red, and that's the image
everyone has now in mind. The company’s history is dirty and the same
for all multinational companies. It had an excellent cooperation with
Nazi Germany and Hitler, bulding factories there, before World War II
Its cooperation with the apartheid regime in South Africa was excellent
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
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
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
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
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,
always sure, that these withdrawals will happen secretly, in order to
avoid the image of its products being damaged. We are not naive enough
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
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,
in thousands of cases of torture and killing of animals during
on 'aesthetic beauty'. NESTLE, has been targeted by various
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
1.5 million children in the Third World every year, due to its
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
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,
ultimately death to many of them. A strategy, which exploits, for
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
modified organisms in its products, in the whole USA. It's a company
exploiting more than 300.000 children worldwide, by employing them to
on its cacao plantations. It's the company behind numerous food
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
scandal, where the deadly E.COLI bacteria was detected inside its
in USA, in 2009. This company also uses, among other large
(PEPSI etc.), ΗΕΚ 293 ( Human Embryonic Kidney 293 cells). SENOMYX, a
company cooperating with NESTLE, selectively uses cells taken from
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,
from the kidneys of unborn fetuses, as taste enhancers.
Beyond that, one of the main reasons we chose NESTLE, are the
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
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,
force feed them with tea ingredients and record the effects before they
In another experiment, they cause brain damages to lab animals. Then,
force feed them with green tea ingredients to record these effects too.
order to make the scientists' job easier, they stimulate lab animals
electrocution, while they are placed in dark cages. They kill and
in dozens of ways and all this because these experiments allow them to
claim that NESTEA benefits the consumers' health. So many souls suffer,
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
fashion. We are not 'sensitive' individuals denying violence, like
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
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,
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

This action marks the beginning of a new project of coordination of
informal affinity groups and FAI cells, under the name 'GREEN NEMESIS'.

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
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
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
health purposes or because of a hypocritical sensitivity for animal
slaughter. It means attack and destruction of every company that

Ecological conscience is a masked lie, when divided form new anarchist
FAI (Informal Anarchist Federation) opens up a new perspective, inviting
the comrades of the anti-civilization tension and the direct action
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
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.

We painted the front glass of a fur and leather shop.
We painted and sprayed the walls and jammed the lock of

Athens a pet shop was attacked. Its front windows were carefully smashed
(so as no harm could be caused to the imprisoned animals) and it was
also painted with red colour.
"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.
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

"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!
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
"About a year now there is some conversation going on
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
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
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
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
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
this rotten state mechanism so as to crawl up there and do
TO DEMOLISH IT.
If this will not happen soon the next visit will cause

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
Ένα χρόνο τώρα γίνεται συζήτηση για το αυθαίρετο κτίσμα στον
Όλυμπο, στη θέση "Μεγάλη Γούρνα Ολύμπου�, το ονομαζόμενο ως και
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
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
Πρωταρχική αιτία της διάνοιξης ήταν τα κτηνοτροφικά ενδιαφέρονται
των κατοίκων και στη συνέχεια τα "φυσιολατρικά ενδιαφέροντα" της
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
Καιρού επιτρέποντος ανεβαίνουν κάθε εβδομάδα φιλόδοξοι εξερευνητές
με τα άγρια θηρία τους � αμάξια για μια βόλτα στην άγρια φύση του
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
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
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.
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
"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
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.
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
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
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

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."
