Police raids in #Athens and #Berlin: And again they create a criminal organization

Berlin. Athens. September 16. 2020. The searches today, which included our anarchist library, are nothing new. But this time the authorities are stepping up their efforts. Five people are affected, who are accused of having founded a special, conspiratorial and criminal association or of being members of it. For this reason, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office is investigating under paragraph 129 and the BKA visited the people concerned at home, sometimes with pulled guns.

#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.

[Video] This is what greek democracy looks like: Cops ram antiracist protesters with their motorbikes in #Athens

Athens. Greece. July 15. 2020. This is what democracy looks like. No, really. This is what democracy looks like. These public servants called “officers of the law” are agents of a democratically elected government. Their acts -regardless of the fact that they are dressed, look and act like a criminal gang and regardless of the fact that if these exact same acts were to be committed by citizens, they would be deemed as crimes according to the law- are authorized and take orders by democratically elected governments all over the world, every day, for decades and decades now. Face it. The fact remains, that although many would not characterize this as “democracy”, because it so obviously arbitrary and unjust, it is actually Democracy.
