#32, 16:06: Athens Polytechnic occupation under imminent threat

A few moments ago one of the pro-vice-chancellors of the Athens Polytechnic announced to the people inside the occupied building that the control of the building is no longer with the university senate and that it has been passed on to an attorney general instead. Anarchist radio 98 FM reports that the senate has ordered the university guards to leave their positions.

There is a general assembly happening right now at the Athens Polytechnic, with people deciding whether they should leave the building or not (UPDATE, 23:45 the assembly has decided the occupation continues – see the occupation’s statement).

What we are all fearing is that a police operation inside the Polytechnic is imminent. This would be the first time in over a decade that such an operation takes place – and the first time ever that police enter university grounds with a mass operation without prior permission by the senate.

    i really hope that the liberators don’t decide to leave peacefully. We cannot let the police walk all over us. This is our land.

    Stay and fight.

    How nasty would it have to get to wake people up? I agree though, leaving quietly would seem to be a bad move…

    You, brothers and sisters, will make the right decision – of that I am sure.

    We all across the world are holding our breath for you, comrades. Our hearts and minds are with you in the Polytechnic. Our hands and feet, however, spread across the whole planet.

    The increase in the level of suppression by state will only attribute to the increase in our militancy.

    It is now 7am so presumably the police did not act and the deadline has passed, the crisis is over for now?

    From a strategic point of view it is important that the rescinding of asylum be repealed – presumably this is part of the education bill the current regime forced through, this must not be forgotten especially when this government is gone, perhaps the campaign against the bill could be pressed hard on the next government if this one falls. I’d also suggest raising a demand to disarm the police – a logical response to police shootings.
