First, we are writing to let you know that our comrade George Karakasian was freed from prison in December after serving four months of a seven month sentence. (He will have to serve the other three months if he is arrested again over the next five years.) So, we are very happy to have George back with us.
Now it is the turn of Sotitiris Marangos to face the judge (the same Papamichael who got promotion for sentencing George). The final hearing is set for 28/01/03, when the judge is due to pronounce the verdict.
Meanwhile we have been carrying on with our activity in various sectors – in manifestations against the imminent war against Iraq, in the diffusion of a critique of the ‘Annan Plan’ where we urge people to insurge against all States, without national or international flags, and we’re also beginning some work against the impending elections.
We now have a web site which we are working on, so you can find further information about our activities there, as well as the texts of some of our leaflets.
Apart from sending you the above info, the reason we are writing to you now is that we would like to establish closer contact with you, and receive, if possible, contacts for anarchists or groups who might be interested in an exchange of ideas with a view to an eventual collaboration in the struggle. We are particularly interested in contacting anarchists in the north of Cyprus and making ourselves known to them.
