Police rioting in Greece against universities and students

After boiling situations for some weeks at the ΑΠΘ in Thessaloniki and in front of the Zografou campus in Athens about the implementation of a new special police force in the universities, the repression against the education sector escalated in the last days. For months now, a cycle of asymmetric violence has been opened by the Mitsotakis government in order to attract a far-right voter base, seeking revenge for the dissolution of the fascist organisation that expressed them under the name “Golden Dawn”.

March 15th, 2022 – 26th Annual International Day Against Police Brutality [Montreal]

Montreal. QC. The evening of March 15th, was the 26th annual protest against police brutality. 26 years of marching, 26 years of systematic repression by police brutality, like an annual tradition that leaves a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. The demonstrators decided to keep control of the sidewalks rather than be chased off the streets by violent and insulting police officers, and attacked the neighborhood’s worst businesses: Dollarama and the National Bank. Let’s remember that if Dollarama is a grocery store of last resort for the poor, it still sells unhealthy crap and is one of the worst companies in Quebec for abusing its workers. And on the other side, the National Bank is investing billions in several important oil projects. In the face of this self-defense of the poor against their oppressors, the police violently attacked the demonstration: truncheons, gas and beatings were the order of the day.

Cádiz – Put an end to police repression! Friday, November 26th Students’ General Strike: Youth fights together with steelworkers, we will not be intimidated! [Spain]

Cadiz. Spain. November 23, 2021. Today the youth of Cadiz took to the streets in great numbers to support the strike of metal workers – what an example of dignity and solidarity! But as thousands of us peacefully participated in the demonstration called by the students’ union, a perfectly coordinated group of riot police brutally attacked the demonstration. It is an absolute disgrace that these forces were sent by the central government to fight us! Despite this unprovoked police violence, we want to say loud and clear that we will not be intimidated and that we fully support the metal workers. Therefore, on Friday, November 26th, we call to once again leave the lecture halls and fill the streets for a new day of student strike!
