Or, to be precise, the “Conspiracy of Nuclei of Fire-Nihilists Sect” — to be confused with the Australian group “Conspiracy of Nuclei of Fred-Nihilists Sect”.
Athens anti-guerrilla case in ruins after new Nuclei of Fire attack
October 4, 2009
A new attack and communique by the Nuclei of Fire, targeting the Greek PM’s central rally in Athens, shatter any remaining credibility of the anti-guerrilla pre-election persecutions.
The already disputed credibility of the anti-guerrilla persecution of three 20 year old boys for their alleged involvement in the urban guerrilla group Nuceli of Fire Conspiracy (NFC), responsible for over 150 storm-attacks against state and capital targets as well as a recent bombing campaign (with no human injuries due to previous warning calls in all cases), has now all but collapsed after the NFC managed to surprise the Greek anti-terrorist office and the secret services by planting and igniting a bomb in the centre of the Prime Minister’s last and central pre-election rally, two days before national elections, in Athens. The bomb was pre-announced so the area was evacuated causing no human injuries but immense ridicule both for the security forces and the PM whose oration on the necessity to crush “youth violence” and restore order was punctuated by the explosion.
If that was not enough to dispute the arrests and the discovery of “the NFC safe-house”, the NFC promptly published an on-line communique that has received extended national coverage and brought shame on the outgoing government [“In a 10-page text that was posted on an internet site Saturday night, the “Conspiracy of Nuclei of Fire-Nihilists Sect” threatens more attacks on politicians, journalists, police and financial targets in the future.”]. In their communique the urban guerrillas denounce the arrests as nonsense and the arrested as “totally unrelated to [their] group”. According to the NFC any arrested of their guerrilla group is obliged to accept his or her participation in it. All 3 arrested have denied any involvement in the group, one even condemning the armed struggle as irrelevant to the revolution.
Moreover, in their long and politically thorny communique, the NFC underline that the only evidence at the hands of the authorities of any connection between their group and the arrested is the supposed existence of a “pressure cooker bomb” in the Chalandri house stormed by the police. The NFC argue that such bombs have been employed since the late 19th century by revolutionaries and cannot possibly be considered “the copyright or modus operandi” of their or any single organisation.

- Oh yeah: ‘Who won’, they asked, ‘the election?’. I laughed, and said ‘PASOK’.
“Results from 97.53% of votes counted showed Papandreou’s Panhellenic Socialist Movement, or PASOK, storming to victory with 43.95%, with Karamanlis’ New Democracy trailing with 33.58% – the party’s worst electoral showing ever. The result gives PASOK a solid majority of 160 seats in the 300-member parliament, bringing it back to power after five years of conservative governance. Papandreou’s victory, along with a recent election win by socialists in Portugal, bucks a European trend that has seen a conservative surge in the continent’s powerhouse economies, including most recently in Germany, where Chancellor Angela Merkel won re-election last week” (Socialists celebrate Greek election, The Press Association, October 5, 2009). “The Communist party KKE occupied their customary third party position with over seven per cent of the vote. Far right Laos followed with over five per cent, leapfrogging over the Syriza coalition of the left which comes fifth at just over four per cent. The Greens garnered over two per cent of the vote which is unlikely to be enough to give them a seat in parliament” (Socialists win Greek election, RFI, October 5, 2009).
