anarchists and members of Masovka Anarchist Collective are arrested by

anti- terrorist unit.

On February the 12th, Silvio Kullolli and Aris Papazacharoudakis,
anarchists and members of Masovka Anarchist Collective are arrested by
the Greek national security services with the collaboration of the Greek
anti- terrorist unit. The previous day, masovka had protested against a
new declaration made by the Greek alternate minister of foreign affairs,
M. Varvitsiotis. The minister’s declaration said tha countries like
Afghanistan and Pakistan are now considered safe, thus making it easier
for thousands of refugees too be deported back to these countries.
Masovka has also dedicated this activistic protest to D. Koufontinas,
who was on hunger strike at the time. Silvio and Aris were arrested
using information from their personal accounts on social media. During
their detainment in the police headquarters, new evidence was
fabricated, using earlier Masovka protests, so that the comrades were
accused of participating in a criminal organisation.

So a political activist group is now being accused of being a criminal
syndicate. Not even a month later, on March the 9th, Aris was kidnapped
by the Greek anti-terrorist unit, a day after a huge demo protesting
police violence was held in Athens. The kidnapping took place after the
police had intercepted his phone calls, admitting they keep track of him
since January, for "reasons of national security". Ari’s was taken to
the police headquarters in Athens, where he was beaten and tortured
physically and verbally for many hours. He was held there for four days,
even facing charges of attempted intentional manslaughter (a police
officer was beaten during clashes following the demo). These charges
were later dropped, due to a complete lack of evidence. Ari’s was
charged with three felonies and was not taken into custody, although he
had to pay 1000 euros as bail. We call on our brothers and sisters
around the world for their financial aid, in order to cover the expenses
of the ongoing trials and the ones the Greek state is setting up for
Masovka.

No one will be left alone during this fight.
