category international | anti-fascism | news report author Friday May 20, 2005 07:58author by ΟRA MIDEN Report this post to the editors

More than 2.500 people today in the antifascist march in the center of Athens.

After the end of the march, about 100 people attacked some riot police with molotov cocktails. The police responded with tons of teargasses. An hour later, riot police and undercover cops wearing hoods stormed the center of Athens (Exarchia). They started arresting people from bars and cafeterias.

They made more than 100 arrests (120 so far), and they still keep arresting people, hours later. They broke in at at least one house. It must be the biggest riot police operation in the past years.

About 1 hour ago, people started gathering outside the police headquarters to learn what is happening and support the people arrested. The riot police, without being provoked attacked the crowd with teargasses, and kept pushing them for many kilometers. The cops are still making arrests in the center of athens while they have refused any lawyers to enter the police headquarters in order to learn about the people arrested.

There are still people "trapped" inside social centers in the center of Athens, surrounded by many cops.
