Translated from Athens IMC
…soon after 01.30 a.m. two jeeps of the OPKE force (the so-called crime protection units, similar to the special guards who shot Alexis –trans.) drove down Navarinou Road, a one way street, the wrong way (that’s the road by the self-organised park –trans.) speeding, shouting and swearing at passers-by. We were all taken by surprise without quite realising what was going on, people started mobilising and chasing the OPKE jeeps, which drove through the nearby Kolleti street with some crazy speed, with the danger of running over passers-by. At the same time at the corner of Solonos and Trikoupi Streets (around one block away from the park –trans.) another OPKE unit had forced two young persons to lie down on the pavement, swearing and threatening them. Some people ran in that direction to assist the two, the OPKE police were taken by surprise and one of the two pulled out his gun and aimed at the crowd, immediately another one threw a stun grenade and the crowd dispersed. The OPKE policemen managed to retreat and yet they returned swearing and holding their genitals. The incident with the gun was very serious and witnessed by at least two comrades.
The assembly called for after the police assault is currently underway at the self-organised park.
