Athens. Perama. Greece. In the early hours of Saturday 23/10/21, 7 bike cops were chasing a car they thought was stolen. In it were three young guys, which the cops recognized as roma. A bit later, there were 38 fireshots, aimed not at the tires of the car (in their supposed attempt to stop it), but higher; in a clear attempt to injure/murder the passengers of the car. All shots were fired by the cops. The three young guys were unarmed. Nikos Sampanis, the 18-year-old co-driver was instantly killed, as he was hit with 2 bullets on the chest. A 16-year-old is injured and still in hospital and the 14-year-old driver ran away amidst gunfire.

The Italian philosopher Donatella Di Cesare’s minoritarian book „The Time of Revolt“ can certainly be read as a complement and extension to Andrew Culp’s „Dark Deleuze“ and Joshua Clover’s „Riot.Strike.Riot.“ From the very first pages, the police as a formation of the security state play an important role for Di Cesare.
