#Lesvos: Bye-bye #Moria

Lesvos. Greece. When a prison burns down, those of us who have experienced, even for a moment, the condition of imprisonment, can only shudder with delight. Regardless of whether a new one will be built after its demolition, and regardless of whether the empty cells will be refilled after the escape of some prisoners, the fact of the escape can only fill us with joy. After all, the struggle for the abolition of every prison, goes through the struggle for individual and social liberation, right here and now.

#Athens: 10, 100, thousands of squats. One year of resistance against state terrorism

Athens. Greece. August 26. 2020. Today marks one year since the armed hooded men of Chrysochoidis invaded the refugee squat of Spyrou Trikoupi 17 and the neighboring Transito squat. It was early in the morning when they forcibly pulled out families with young children from their beds–people who after much hardship and suffering had found a place to grow roots again in these buildings. They took them from their home and distributed them in miserable camps to live in the dirt and with indifference in canvas tents. Since then, a barrage of state terrorist attacks on refugee and political squats has led to evacuations, snatching of people, beatings, and arrests.The refugee squats have functioned for many years as unprecedented experiments of practical anti-racism and anti-fascism, self-organization, and solidarity.

#Athens: News from Petrou Ralli

The hellhole of Petrou Ralli Aliens’ Pre-removal Detention Center of Attiki, in Tavros, is perhaps the worst environment that a human being who the state and EU deem “illegal” (solely for the fact s/he/@ lacks proper documentation) can experience while in Greece. Detention in this prison normally lasts for months, exceeding the legal time limits, with cases of individuals abandoned there for up to 18 months. Conditions at Petrou Ralli fail to meet even the minimum requirements of a prison: hygiene is unacceptable, meals are inedible, the mattresses are full of bugs, and the blankets unwashed. The most basic cleaning and disinfection procedures are not carried out.

#Athens, #Greece: Statement on the events of the last weeks in Viktoria square and the migrant struggle

Athens. Greece. At 4:30 in the morning on the 17th of June, squads of riot police surrounded Plateia Viktoria and forced around 16 sleeping families — about 71 children and 44 adults — onto busses.

They didnot want to go to another refugee camp. All of the families had spent months in Moria living indirty and dangerous conditions. They had arrived in Athens a few days earlier and slept onthe pavement of the Plateia. The families asked why they were being punished, abandoned,and denied basic human rights.
