Statement by Emanzipatorische Antifa Wuppertal (Germany) About Fascist Attack Against the Libertatia Squat in Thessaloniki
Today (January 21, 2018) there was a nationalist protest in Thessaloniki. It was all about the Macedonia issue, an everlasting issue where both countries are arguing about. There was also a call for counter protests. During the day several squats were attacked.
The Libertatia squat was torched during the attacks and was burned down completely. The EKX Sxoleio (The School) was also attacked by fascists but comrades reacted fast and the nazis had to retreat.
It is necessary to mobilize and to find a direct answer to these fascist attacks!
This can and will not be unanswered!
We call for solidarity and direct action!

Clashes in Thessaloniki
Clashes broke out between cops and activists during an antifa demonstration in Thessaloniki tonight (January 22, 2018). People protested against fascist violence after the cops did not interfere during yesterdays fascist attacks against two squats in the Greek city. Fascists also vandalized the holocaust memorial and a banner with jewish and muslim religious symbols yesterday without any interference by cops.
At 06:00pm people started to gather in front of the burned remains of the Libertatia squat in Thessaloniki. After the cops attacked the demo, clashes broke out. Several people were arrested. Once again the cops showed on which side they are on.
