Greece: cops attack another squat (and other news)

Greek police, of strong Nazi sympathies, attacked the oldest anarchist squat of Athens, Lelas Karagianni, this morning (c. 12:00 or 12:30 pm). 14 people were arrested. 

Hours later the building was liberated again.

Villa Amalias arrestees released

All the 92 people arrested in the police attack against another squat a few days ago, Villa Amalias, have been released today, after declaring to a tribunal, on condition of signing at police stations regularly (no bail). 

A very large solidarity demonstration took place before the court while they were being processed by the injustice system. Clashes ensued. Some 250 people were arrested and later released.

Other protests took place in Thessaloniki, Patras, Chania, Rethymnon and Heraklion (Crete), Mytilini (Lesvos), Naxos, Trikala, Arta, Preveza, Ioannina, Xanthi, Kozani, Komotini and Kalamata.

Shooting against empty ruling party offices

In an unclear incident someone apparently shot a kalashnikov rifle against the, now unused, partisan office of Greek conservative PM Andonis Samaras. The incident took place by night and nobody was injured. The bourgeois politicians complained but the truth is that they are the ones feeding this anger (if not shooting the bullets themselves in a desperate attempt to turn the tides of public opinion).
