Athens. Greece. On Friday 8th of November, the anarchist comrade Vangelis Stathopoulos is arrested by the Greek Anti-terrorist Service with the excuse that he took part on a robbery in a gaming agency in Holargos, Athens on the 21st of October. During the next day of his arrest, within a crescendo of terror-hysteria reaction, he is suddenly being announced that he is also accused of participating in the organization “Revolutionary Self-defense”. Our comrade’s arrest is accompanied with an alloy of radio and mud towards his face, from the government’s right hand, the massive media, through various press publications and television reports which reproduce fabricated accusations and present him as the “domestic terrorist” and “the Kung Fu teacher who gives classes of military defense in order to create an army”.Continue reading Solidarity to the prosecuted comrade Vangelis Stathopoulos [Athens, Greece]
Greece. We have reported so much on the always changing situation out here as it is of concern to anarchists. These reports reflect our priorities as an anarchist collective that waves a purely black flag, and also our own experiences or perspectives on what is happening around us. In the past we overwhelmed ourselves, and likely the reader as well, trying our best to discuss ‘everything’. However we want to use these reports to make more targeted reporting. We take responsibility for missing things, however our intention is to raise cross border solidarity, and inform others to both better understand the situation here, and relate it to their own. Information and links are provided at the end of this report, like all the others, where you can find constant updates and information on the situation as well.Continue reading March & April 2021: “Our Hatred for the Police Will Bring Us Together” [Greece]
