#Athens, #Greece: Police brutality in times of the #coronavirus

Athens. Greece. April 5, 2020. On 5/4, a friend from Pakistan was walking on Amfipoleos street in Votanikos towards Rouf train station. At the traffic lights, 2 DIAS bikes that were headed to the opposite direction did a U-turn and stopped him. They asked him where he lives and where he’s going, he showed them the handwritten paper that said he was going out for exercise and then they asked him for his residence permit. He showed them the application certificate, because he’s expecting his papers in the next month, they tore it up, shouting that this isn’t valid anywhere, they pushed him against the wall hitting him in the face, one of them pulled his gun, the other two were holding him and the third one was looking around. One spit at him. At that moment the man’s phone was ringing, the cops saw that those were calls from his girlfriend and started mocking him saying: “Do you have a date?” and “Is your girlfriend looking for you?”.

#Seattle: PSPS Statement on Recent FBI Activity

Puget Sound Prisoner Support (PSPS) is an anti-repression collective based in Seattle. For 5+ years we have provided jail and legal support for people who have been arrested at protests and demonstrations. We walk people through the legal procedure of arrest, court proceedings, bail if necessary, getting in touch with a lawyer also if necessary, and in general help people understand a confusing legal system. We do not provide legal support for people who get arrested for civil disobedience; rather, we provide an “emergency service” for when participants of a protest or demonstration get arrested. We offer a safety net for people to land in when the unexpected happens and things go wrong. We’ve supported friends and strangers alike, bailed people out, showed up at court proceedings throughout trials, and helped with fundraising to cover legal costs. Our major caveat is that we do not offer support to anyone who would endanger our communities by way of cooperating with the police, the courts or any other governing agency. No snitching, plain and simple.
