Today, 7th June 2017, the judge pronounced the sentence in the court case against two anarchist comrades accused of having robbed the PaxBank in Aachen 2014. While one comrade was set free, our sister and comrade was sentenced to seven and a half years of prison.
What this sentence has clearly shown, is that not only were the facts on trial but also ideas, our anarchist ideas, our solidarity bond and the refusal of collaboration with power.
Despite their intention to break and repress our anarchist ideas and practices, for our part, we remain and will remain proud and convinced of who we are and why we struggle.
This is what was shown in courtroom with our cries of rage and solidarity, as an answer to the dignity that our comrade maintained saluting us with her head high her fist raised as she was being escorted out of the room. We expressed all our contempt to the court for what it represents. We hope that this storm of rage and hate, and of love for our comrade blows and spreads wide throughout this damned world.
Freedom for our comrades, war on our enemies
Some anarchists in solidarity
Barricades in solidarity with the anarchists implicated in the Aachen affair
At the early hours of the 7th of June a street blockade was carried out by setting fire to garbage containers and to tires with the aim of parlysing the traffic entering and leaving from Barcelona through the rovira tunnel.
This action is in solidarity with the anarchist comrades accused in the Aachen case, on the day of their verdict.
Freedom for imprisoned comrades!

Attack with paint on the german chamber of commerce in Barcelona, as an answer to the verdict of the Aachen case.
After the verdict of this morning which sentenced an anarchist comrade accused on bank robbery to seven and a half years of prison…
This midday we paid a visit to the german chamber of commerce on Calle Còrsega, n. 301. We redecorated the huge door making one thing clear: CAP CONDEMNA ENS FARÀ CREURE (A) (no sentence will make us believe (A).)
We want to express our solidairty with our comrade, send her and her close comrades an embrace, while pointing out the german entrepreneurial network.
Your sentences cannot stop our ideas, our lives, nor the world we carry in our hearts!
Stealing from a bank is not violence, founding one is!
Long live anarchy!

On Tuesday, June 6, at noon we slashed the wheels of two trucks of the multinational DHL, in solidarity with the anarchists imprisoned and on trial in Germany accused of expropriating a bank.
With this symbolic action we wanted to point out one of the biggest companies of German capital, which profits from the business of war and frontiers, and greet the comrades that are tomorrow facing the final day of their courtcase in Aachen.
Freedom anarchist prisoners !!
We want them on the streets!
After the arrest of comrade Pola Roupa member of the Revolutionary
Struggle and the comrade who was arrested at a similar operation in
Brahami, a solidarity gathering was carried out outside GADA (athens
An open assembly in the Polytechnic followed, which carried out an
intervention outside the house of S.Kodonis minister of Justice. The
mass intervention by solidarians is a first reflex action to the
vengeful captivity by the state of the 6year old child of comrades
N.Maziotis and Pola Roupa, who went on hunger and thirst strike
demanding that their child be given to their relatives immediately.
IMMEDIATE SATISFACTION OF THE DEMAND OF COMRADES MAZIOTIS AND ROUPA WHO
ARE ON HUNGER AND THIRST STRIKE
THE STATE AND CAPITAL ARE THE ONLY TERRORISTS
SOLIDARITY TO ARMED GUERRILLAS

When the enemy seems to be standing up well and uses all means to crash anything opposite, then the attack towards him, his symbols and infrastructures is the only way. Wherever we look we see various types of authority, either called cop, judge either called school, bank, church, prison. Institutions of a rotten system that every day remind us that we are not free. Their real value will be shown with their destruction and through ashes and wreckage their beauty will be shown. No more compromises fit here right now. Their place should be taken over by determination and continuous struggle.
In the undeclared war which is taking place, when there isn’t direct usage of weapons, then other means are mobilised in order to hit the mind and the soul of every unrepentant revolutionary.
The new high security prisons are aiming right at that, his extermination. When its their turn, judges and prosecutors give revengeful long sentences. Prosecutor Olga Smirli confirmed her role at the trial for the ATE bank (now Pireaus Bank) in Pyrgetos Larisa giving away 16 years to G.NAXAKIS and G.SARAFOUDIS, with the only evidence being their political identity.
Either the two comrades participated in the robbery, either not, we are with them and we dedicate them the attack on Pireaus Bank on the early hours of the 10th of September in Sykies, Thessaloniki. This act is a small sign of solidarity and a message that everything continues…
Lets fight, everyone in their own way, forcefully, with the means that they have, till the end, until total liberation.
STRENGTH TO N.MAZIOTIS AND P.ROUPA
A RAISED FIST TO ALL REVOLUTIONARIES
