DEATH OF A DESPICABLE MAN
Natalia Kexiopoulou is a 19-year-old student who came with her step-family from Abhazia, a region of the former Soviet Union. From the time she was 14 years old, her father had been raping her regularly, threatening to send her back to Abhazia – a place that she remembers mainly for the horrors of the conflict there – if she said anything. On March 11, he tried to rape her again in her office. She pulled out a knife to defend herself and stabbed her father to death.
It should be noted that her father was a man of some power, being a member of the security service of Vladimir Putin, Russian head of state. In addition, he may have been involved in "people trafficking", that is to say, pimping.
Rapist, security agent, pimp—in other words a pig through and through. Acting in her own self-defense, Natalya did us all a favor, ridding the world of another petty authoritarian piece of shit. She was supposed to go to court on March 15. I have not heard what the outcome of that hearing was. I agree with the Greek anarchist group "Back to the streets" in their call for solidarity with Natalia Kexiopoulou and all who take direct action against those who exploit and victimize them.
ATHENS, GREECE (March 25, 2002)—The police station in Exarchia was attacked with molotov cocktails early in the evening, endangering one police guard, and damaging three police cars and two police motorcycles. The entrance to the station also suffered damages, and the police guard was kept at bay because his canopy was under attack. The Chaotic Guerrilla Army claimed responsibility for the attack. Their message proclaimed: "Solidarity with the demonstrators of Barcelona" and "Honor to Carlo Giuliani and to all those who have died in the social war."
