Statement by the “Organization United Women from Africa” about another murder by cops in Athens.
Note: Enough 14 is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.
A few days ago a man from Nigeria, from our community, was murdered at Omonoia square in Athens, by the Greek police. We must march on the streets and shout for justice. We must do something now before more lives are lost. This is not the first time something like this happens. We already know of two other people from our community who have been recently murdered by the Greek police. And unfortunately many more have lost their lives through the years and those cases remain unknown. On a daily basis, we are informed of beatings of people of African descent by the police which leave them on the street to die. These murders are silenced.
Ebuka, was the father of two children, one of whom was newly-born. His wife, children and community are now mourning. We stand in solidarity with his family and his loved ones.
The police does not protect us. As the African Community in Greece we constantly feel that our lives are in danger. We demand justice for Ebuka!
