UPDATE, 15:51: Last night, the offices of “Teiresias” were also torched. “Teiresias” is the corporation collecting and handling information on the financial status of corporations and individuals, run credit checks… A bad record with them means people cannot apply for loans etc.
UPDATE, 03:38: Siege of the Athens Polytechnic grounds by the riot police is finally over. For hours, the pigs would throw their chemicals into the campus, to the people who had retreated there after gathering at the point of the assassination of Alexandros. There was heavy street fighting throughout the night. There were clashes all around the area of Eksarhia, Athens.
The plan for today was for many small demonstrations to take place around the entire city of Athens, so that this decentralised action could bring the city to a standstill. There were demonstrations in the neighbourhoods of Gyzi, Peristeri (were the second student was shot), Chaidari, Petralona, Nea Smyrni, Victoria, Vyronas, Illion (that’s tomorrow) and in the cities of Thessaloniki, Heraclion and Larisa.
Fresh “anarcho-transportation” actions took place at the metro stations of Brahami and Ayios Antonios. In the last few days, many stations around the city have been visited by small anarchist groups that sabotage the vending machines, handing out leaflets (“the self-organisation of the passengers will bring the end of the ticket inspectors”…)
At least four more radio stations were occupied today (“Best,” “En Lefko”, “Athina 9.84″ and “Republic 100.3″; texts against state violence and in solidarity with the arrestees of the riots were read.
Responding to a callout by the Athens Polytechnic occupation, we will be gathering at the point of Alexis’ assassination in the next couple of hours. We’ve been reading the reports from the solidarity actions across the world. Keep them coming. The states murder the people but tonight, a night against state murders, is a night of the people. This is our night.
