Refusal to appear in court for the case of R.O. Conspiracy Cells of Fire

I do not intend to present itself as a witness in this court, because the way that its been carried out from the beginning does not honour any one.

This action of mine is a minimal token of solidarity and admiration to the fighters-insurrected young people, that deny to appear here, because their demands were not accepted (not to retain the identities of the people in the court room and tape recording the proceedings), demands that actually are, among other things, necessary prerequisites for the conduct of a trial. Thus, this clearly political trial was transformed into a parody and special court martial.

And of course the objective of all mechanisms of power is obvious, to face the insurrected with small measures, hide the stature of their soul and mind, not to be heard that they followed difficult paths, that they risked everything for the glory of the human.

And there are eras in history, as its happening now, when Political Prisoners, transform prisons into the most luminous places in the world.

I hope and I wish the era will come of the genuine people, where such fighters, they will not imprison them, but will hear their word.
