During the night of 24-25/3/2008, Prapopoulou Squat at Halandri, Athens, was firebombed.

During the night of 24-25/3/2008, Prapopoulou Squat at Halandri, Athens, was firebombed. Neighbours claim they saw three men running out of the building right before the explosion that wrecked large part of the building, the roof and the library. (photos: http://athens.indymedia.org/front.php3?lang=el&article_id=846797).

Prapopoulou squat is managed by an open assembly, active in neighbourhood and environmental issues (for example, the protection of a local stream against privatization and constructions, activities against the sprawl arsons in Parnitha mountain, Athens etc). Their blog: http://protovouliaxalandriou.blogspot.com/

This arson came after a series of similar attacks against self-managed infoshops. Few examples:

24/12/2007: Second arson with an identical device containing mothball and bullets at Thersitis self-managed infoshop.

25/12/2007: Unknown persons broke in the offices of 4 base-syndicates, didn't steal anything, but messed stuff up.

1/1/2008: Unknown persons hurl a molotov coctail against Ypogeios at Kallidromiou social center (their blog: http://ypogeiws94.blogspot.com/).

4/1/2008: Arson at the Southern Suburbs Residents Initiative self-managed infoshop (their blog:http://www.prwkat.blogspot.com/).

Meanwhile, in the previous months, another 2 squats, Salamandra at Patissia and Millerou and Germanikou at Kerameikos were evicted by the police.

All these action, while evidence came to light proving the police's "special attention" (investigations and surveillance) on self-managed infoshops (Photos of the police reports: http://athens.indymedia.org/front.php3?lang=el&article_id=846651) as well as the cooperation between nazi groups (that tend to undertake actions against infoshops and activists) and the official police (when they 're not the exact same persons, as in the case of this officer right here: http://athens.indymedia.org/front.php3?lang=el&article_id=846633).

One can see for example the photos of cops and nazis fooling around and working together (during the February 2 antifascist riots in Athens) at: http://athens.indymedia.org/front.php3?lang=el&article_id=822697.

As Anarchist Political Organization, having organized the Anarchist Meeting for Struggle against Borders, War and Modern Totalitarianism and for Solidarity with refugees and immigrants during the No Border Camp, we express our solidarity to the squatted spaces who were hit by the state repression. To our comrades, refugees and immigrants who supported the mobilizations, beforehand and during, with their presence and activity, turning them into a target of the repressive authorities, for what they stand for as a part of the world of Struggle.

The far-right bastards of syriza go smoothly hand in hand with ND (nea dimokratia, right-wing party in power before syriza’s election), anthimos (the metropolit, church’s highest officer in Thessaloniki) and all the rest pile of shit, consisting the long arm of repression. With a non-seen before operation of revenge against no border camp, they attack in the crack of dawn on families of refugees in their own homes and on the solidaries.

The message the left wing government wants to transmit is that there is no space for solidarity and self-managed responses to the ordeal of the refugees, only the state’s charity and the confinement, marginalisation and selective deportation carried out by a government that follows to the letter the criminal immigration policies of the EE.

The Villa Amalias squat has been an open political, cultural and social space, as well as a housing collective, for the past 23 years. In all these years there have been plenty of active groups in the squat including groups on theatre, concerts, musical studio, stained glass, kids’ space, dancing, foreign languages, computing, printing press, screenings, lending library, vinyl exchange – while the squat has also hosted plenty of political and cultural events by other groups. Apart from these activities inside its building, Villa Amalias has also contributed to the resolution of neighbourhood issues by participating in the residents’ assembly of Victoria square and by organising open, outward looking activities in the area – including open mic interventions, free markets, collective kitchens and kids’ events at the square.

imageMass murder in Ankara - the finger points at the Turkish state Oct 13 by Andrew Flood 1 comments

Graffiti has appeared at the site of the bomb explosion in Ankara yesterday that reads "It was not terror that killed us, it was the state." This is reflecting the widespread belief that the true origins of the bombing that killed around 100 people at the pro Kurdish peace demonstration are to be found in Erdogan's AKP party desperate attempt to intensify conflict in the hope of polarizing the electorate ahead of Novembers elections. The same process in other words that those killed yesterday were demonstrating against.

In Böll’s universe, catharsis comes even by the distorted way of vigilantism. In real life, we watch every day the rapid fascist conversion of society, the nightmarish police-judicial fortification, the States’ arbitrariness (which are able to conveniently confess that they adduced and beat someone because he looks like someone else, as was the case recently with Dimosthenis Papadatos-Anagnostopoulos, member of the parliamentary party Syriza) and the media’s brinkmanship in the conductor’s part that step over anyone without punishment.

On 6 December, at nine in the evening, a man of the special police force stopped, took aim and shot dead a fifteen-year old kid in the neighbourhood of Exarchia, Athens. This murder is not a singular event of police violence. The morning of the same day, immigrants waiting to apply for asylum at the police station of Petrou Ralli avenue were attacked by riot police.
