The recent arrests and detentions-until-trial of Giorgos Kalaitzidis, Panagiotis Aspiotis and Petros Karasarinis according to the law for organized crime (terrorlaw) is an attempt of the repressive authorities to encircle the anarchist-antiauthoritarian space by legal means and to exterminate it by practical means. This will be a beginning of a generalised attack against everyone who resists, in society in general and among the workers more specifically. That's why this case doesn't concern only the anarchist-antiauthoritarian space but everyone who resists and criticizes the brutal enforcement of the dominance of the state, the crushing of individual and social rights, the rights of workers and immigrants.
The antiauthoritarian practices of extra-institutional action which attain rights and even more freedom for the social resistance in general, are criminalised through institutional adjustments and changes in legislation in order for the state to define the way of struggle of either the anarchist-antiauthoritarian space or the general antiglobalisation movement or even the workers.
Comrades, right now the environment of dominance in Europe wishes to demolish any kind of threat or potential threat. This is confirmed by the wave of arrests and raids in Italy and Spain. This fact together with the arrest of the three renders the space a target of multinational repression (which is already institutionalized) and the discussion about combating the new reality has to begin.

None of the criminals concerned likes publicity, and the everywhere used sneaky excuse - to start with and further censorship - is, as was thought: 'to stop pornography.'
