about

This is a benefit download for Greek anarchist prisoner Kostas Sakkas.

Kostas Sakkas is an anarchist who was arrested in December 2010, one of the earliest in a wave of arrests targeting the “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire”. Both Sakkas and the CCF refuse he was ever a member, and Sakkas has separately taken the responsibility for his political activity as an anarchist. Held since, Sakkas’ initial pre-trial maximum detention expired eighteen months later, in the summer of 2012 -yet it was extended by another year, to June this year (ie. last month). At that time, a court of appeals in Athens ordered the extension of Sakkas’ detention by another six months, now solidly stepping outside the boundaries that the legal apparatus had set for its own self. On June 4, Kostas Sakkas went on a hunger strike.

Now, his health has seriously deteriorated. The judge has since stated that if Kostas is able to raise bail he will be free to leave prison until his trial, but bail has been set at 30,000 euro which is an enormous amount.

All money raised through this download of the two songs will go to the campaign to help free Kostas.

Pigs will Pay is one of the first songs I wrote, and here it is hastily re-recorded 6 years later. The other song is originally by British punk band Crass. I didn't really practice either.
