BoG bomb claim points to return of Maziotis

Revolutionary Struggle, an urban guerrilla group that emerged over a decade ago, on Friday claimed its first attack in more than four years as a proclamation posted on the Indymedia website said that the organization planted the large car bomb that exploded outside the Bank of Greece on April 10.

Police are treating the statement, which ran to almost 20,000 words, as genuine and a clear sign that Revolutionary Struggle mastermind Nikos Maziotis and his partner Pola Roupa are actively engaged in terrorist activity. The couple disappeared in June 2012 while they were awaiting trial for previous attacks.

The proclamation linked the April 10 blast, caused by 75 kilos of the explosive ANFO, to past attacks by the group on the premises of Citibank, Eurobank and the Athens Stock Exchange. It said that this month’s attack was timed to coincide with Greece’s return to bond markets and the visit of German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the coming days.

“By striking at the Bank of Greece, we are striking the interests of the European economic oligarchy,” the attackers said.

The group dedicated the blast to Lambros Fountas, an alleged member of Revolutionary Struggle who was shot dead by police in March 2010 as he was attempting to steal a car.

“Exactly four years after the repressive strike against our organization and while the state and many enemies of the armed struggle were celebrating that they had dismantled Revolutionary Struggle, this action proves them wrong,” said the proclamation.
