ATHENS: REPRESSION

Athens, Greece: 16-year-old shot dead by policeman. Actions all over Greece

 

On Saturday 6th of December at around 10pm, two Greek policemen were in patrol in a central street by Exarchia square, in the center of Athens. They had a verbal argument with some young people who were there. During the argument, one of the cops pulled his gun and shot a 16-year-old guy twice. The victim was moved to Evangelismos Hospital to be found dead. According to eye-witnesses, the cop had been swearing against the young man, showing his genitals, before shooting him.

In a spontaneous response, thousands of people gathered in the centers of most of Greek cities. In Athens, people gathered outside Evangelismos Hospital, in order to prevent the cops from entering the building. A little later the riot police attacked in a street in Exarchia resulting to one person being arrested. The evening in Athens evolved with a spontaneous assembly in the Polytechnic University, a lot of riots in the whole center of Athens [photos 1] [photos 2] including attacks against police departments and banks, until the early hours of the next morning. Meanwhile, a spontaneous demonstration took place, but it was confronted by the riot police with tear gas. Three more University building, the Economic, the Pantion and the Law School have been occupied.

Rallies, demonstrations, direct actions and riots took place all around the country. In Thessaloniki, a big spontaneous demonstration took place, while 2 Police Departments were attacked, several bank departments were burnt and Egnatia str., the main street, was block by burning trash bins for hours. Reports have been also posted about actions in Yannena, Iraklio [photos] Chania, Komotini, Mitilini, Xanthi, Serres, Sparta, Alexandroupolis and Volos.

Demonstrations in all cities of Greece have been announced for Sunday 7 December afternoon, starting at 1pm.

According to the mainstream media, two Ministers offered their resignation, but it was not accepted by the Prime Minister. The two policemen have already been detained and accused for murder, while they insist that the bullet was shot on the air to keep the young men away, but it ricocheted off a metal object ("a label") towards the stomach of the victim.

Cet aprém, devant la rue qui mène à l'ambassade grecque à paris, puisqu'elle avait été bloquée par des nombreux flics, des solidaires grecs, français et italiens on protesté contre la violence contre-révolutionnaire des états. Les slogans principaux étaient "flics, porcs assassins", en français et grec, "l'état grec assassine", "tous les états assassinent", "contre la crise et la répression, de la révolte à la révolution".
A 20h, à la fondation hellénique à la cité u une assemblée aura lieu pour prendre des décisions concernant l'avenir de nos actions.

Αυτό το απόγευμα, μπροστά στην οδό που οδηγεί στην ελληνική πρεσβεία στο παρίσι, καθώς η οδός ήταν μπλοκαρισμένη από τους πολλούς μπάτσους που την προστάτευαν, έγινε διαδήλωση από έλληνες, γάλλους κ ιταλούς αλληλέγγυους ενάντια στην κρατική αντιδραστική βία κ καταστολή.
Στις 8, στην fondation hellénique στη cité u θα γίνει συνέλευση με θέμα τις μελλοντικές δράσεις του εδώ κινήματος.

You're all a bunch of idiots!

CrocodilusPontifex 11.Dec.2008 05:29

Do you guys even watch the news? Or read newspapers? Or are you so convinced that it's all "corporate/state propaganda" that you ignore the facts when its right in front of you?

Look up the Greek riots in The Guardian, or BBC, or CNN.

"In Thessaloniki, more than 1,000 protesters clash with police, set fire to a bank and smash stores...30 people injured, including police, firefighters and bystanders. Looting is rife."

Tell me, how does it help the poor and working class to destroy their source of income, jobs and taxable revenue? What good does robbing small shop owners do?

The kid who died wasn't even poor, he was "the son of a bank manager" and that he was in a group that had attacked the police first, further proving that anarchists are just a bunch of violent, rich white males who like to dress and black (ever heard of Mussolini's Fascist "Blackshirts"?

You are anarcho-fascists; political extremists who've made a lifestyle out of vandalism!

Continually updated news on the Greek riots

l 13.Dec.2008 20:09

The Center For Strategic Anarchy blog is being continually updated with news, images, video, and accounts from around the world.

Check it often for updates:  http://anarchiststrategy.blogspot.com

Please add this link to main article.

The Center is a syndicate of strategically-minded anarchist soldiers of fortune—psychotic individuals pitilessly destroying post-modern civilization at every available opportunity; living like debonair criminals, the kind of people who use stolen limousines as getaway cars; who build infernal machines that sow chaos and confusion; who obliterate golden calves and stone tablets alike, who eat gods. We are the lords of our Company, the enemies of God, pity, and mercy.

Not content to merely react to the forces of misery, we constantly refine our strategy, always seeking to use the enemy's prejudices and pretenses to our advantage. Fighting to destroy hierarchy while neglecting to think strategically is like resigning one's self to eating soup with a knife. Refusing to respond to the enemy's incursions with apathy or outrage in the manner of the loyal opposition, both pathetic reactions worthy only of scorn, we observe our opponents in order to gain advantages in battle. We dash in headlong, but never indiscriminately, always with a plan, and it is in this manner that we become the proverbial hot knife to power's stick of cold butter.

How to Organize an Insurrection

crimethinc.com 27.Dec.2008 06:22



We are pleased to present one of the first inside reports from participants in the upheavals that shook Greece after the police murder of 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropoulos in the anarchist neighborhood of Exarchia on December 6.

This is only the first set of answers to come in from our Greek comrades. We hope shortly to receive further perspectives from other elements of the Greek uprising, so we can provide a comprehensive background on the context and dynamics of the revolt. If you or someone you know is situated to give your own answers to these questions, please email them to us at  rollingthunder@crimethinc.com.

--

Q: How were the actions coordinated within cities? How about between cities?


There are hundreds of small, totally closed affinity groups—groups based in longstanding friendship and 100% trust—and some bigger groups like the people from the three big squats in Athens and three more in Thessaloniki. There are more than 50 social centers in Greece, and anarchist political spaces in all the universities of the country; also, the Antiauthoritarian Movement has sections in all major cities, and there is a network of affinity groups of the Black Bloc active in all Greek cities, based on personal relations and communicating via telephone and mail. For all of them, Indymedia is very important as a strategic point for collecting and sharing useful information—where conflicts are happening, where the police are, where secret police are making arrests, what is happening everywhere minute by minute; it is also useful on a political level, for publishing announcements and calls for demonstrations and actions.

Of course, we can’t forget that in practice the primary form of coordination was from friend to friend through mobile phones; that was also the main approach used by young students for coordinating their initiatives, demonstrations, and direct actions.



Q: What kinds of organizing structures appeared?

a.) All sorts of small companies of friends were making spontaneous decisions in the streets, planning actions and carrying them out themselves in a chaotic, uncontrollable manner: thousands of actions taking place at the same time everywhere around the country . . .

b.) Every afternoon there was a General Assembly in squatted schools, squatted public buildings, and squatted universities . . .

c.) Indymedia was used for announcements and strategic coordination of actions . . .

d.) The various communist parties also organized their own confederations of students . . .

e.) . . . And also, one especially influential federation was organized by the friends of Alexis, to organize the students’ demonstrations and actions, the squatting of schools, and to publish general announcements from the students’ struggle.
