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.
[please forward as widely as possible! the comrades are still imprisoned]

27-10-2005 20:06Through one of my contacts I was informed last Saturday that last Friday the US army, after initial skirmishes along the border with Syria, have actually invaded Syria.
This was confirmed later by 2 further contacts - one from Germany and another from the USA.
Remember when the US invaded Iraq, it came to light that they were already bombing strategic targets for quite a while before the official invasion, so it’s highly likely that a similar thing could be happening again.
27-10-2005 16:56"... I fast in urgency
overhearing cries of skint mothers homeless people groaning
I fast in London in the knowledge these people are not moaning
They are the makers of the manifesto for the next big event
I fast as I visualise the hurricane of awareness near each tent
of the neglected abandoned victims of the floods the quake
