Joshua “Skelly” Stafford

“I first met Skelly a year before Occupy started.  He was a friend of my son’s and was over helping him with his bike.  My impression of Skelly was that he was someone that his friends could always depend on.  An incident with Skelly that touched my heart happened at Occupy.  One night at the food tent, a homeless family consisting of a woman and her two small children came by.  She stated that her eyes were bad and asked if someone could help identify the correct bus to get on.

Thomas Meyer-Falk

An update from Thomas on June 6, 2013:

After being imprisoned for almost 17 years nonstop, from the 8th of July 2013 onward I will be held in Preventative Detention (Sicherungsverwahrung, a form of “security detention” in Germany for convicts who have served full terms, but are still considered to be a risk to “public safety” and therefore detained past the end of their sentence). So I want to use this final period of my prison sentence to write a balance sheet of sorts.

Jared (Jay) Chase

Jay, of the NATO 3, is serving an 8-year sentence for helping undercover cops with their own idea to make molotov cocktails, that were never used, to protest the 2012 NATO summit in Chicago.

He was arrested on 01/11/2010 along with Gerasimos Tsakalos, while participating in one of the CCF’S campaigns, which involved the shipping of 14 parcel-bombs to various foreign embassies and leaders. They had two parcel bombs on them and another two had already been sent by them. While Tsakalos was known to police simply because he is an anarchist, Argyrou had a warrant out for his arrest since October 2009 on charges of belonging to the Fire Cells Conspiracy, and he was also awaiting trial for allegedly torching a public bus two years ago.

He received a second pre-trial detention, after his public statement admitting he is a member of CCF, prosecuted for instigation concerning the case of the shipping of 14 parcel bombs.

Giorgos Karagiannidis

While he denies being a member of the Cells of Fire, Giorgos was tried in the so-called “Halandri case.” He was found guilty of manufacturing explosives, possessing explosives, and being an accomplice to the explosion at the home of PASOK ministers Louka Katseli and Gerasimos Arsenis. Sentenced to 20 years in prison out of a total combined sentence of 32 years.
