#493 | Keratea struggle in “civil war twist” as riot police indiscriminately storm houses in the town and 1,000 people besiege the local police station for hours in response

(Breaking news, post to be updated later tonight)

The struggle of locals in the area of Keratea in Attica against the construction of a landfill in their area has been going since December 12, 2010. Near-daily clashes of  the locals with the riot police occupying the site of the planned landfill have taken a new twist tonight: Riot police stormed the town itself, breaking in houses and arresting at least one 30-year resident who, according to the locals, has been entirely uninvolved in the clashes. According to the ex-mayor of Keratea, the 30 year old’s mother had a heart attack after watching her son being arrested.

At the time of writing (19.40 GMT+2) more than 1,000 enraged locals have besieged the local police station, hurling stones, sticks and molotov cocktails to the police guarding it. A local described the scene as “reminiscent of the civil war”.

More info as it comes.
