The vice is tightening around the rebel and solidarity district of Athens:

EVACUATION IN PROGRESS OF THE SQUAT “FIFTH SCHOOL” NEXT TO EXARCHEIA

4 days after the evacuation of two squats (1) a few hundred meters west of Exarcheia, the Greek state continues its strategy of encirclement and penetration of the neighborhood.

This time, it is on the other side, the south-east of Exarcheia, a large squat is being evacuated, in the precincts of a former high school abandoned.

For now, Mitsotakis does not yet dare to attack the main historic squats of the heart of Exarcheia, especially Notara 26 and the K * Vox, but his desire to “clean up Exarcheia” persists, the desire have disappear a unique political and social experience that disturbs power in Europe.

Once again, the State shows its true face: a hyperstructure aiming to control everything, not in the service of the large number but of the power that claims to govern us and forbid us to live otherwise.

However, we showed Friday evening, by symbolically taking over the squat Spirou Trikoupi 17, evacuated at the end of August, a time of festivity over these last three years, that nothing is over and that we will not let matters stand.

We are seeds. Seeds of utopias. We are not afraid of wind, rain or autumn. Not even of winter.
