Police attack the metro station at Syntagma, tear gassing and suffocating the thousands inside.

Riot police club unarmed demonstration in the head. The demonstration is shouting “get out of the square” and “don’t hit me”.

Police chemicals in Syntagma.

A DIY medical centre was formed in the Syntagma metro-station; several hundred of people had fled in the station during the police attack. In this video the crowd is opening up for two injured demonstrators who are in urgent need of further treatment to be transferred to the hospital. They were taken there by metro (!) as police prevented the ambulances from approaching the square. The people in the orange colour vests are workers in the Athens metro; the crowd claps and chants ‘Cops, Pigs Murderers!’

DIAS cops attack people and damage a restaurant in Athens, Monastiraki

Riot police collaborates with masked up thugs (revealed to be nazi trade unionists at the bus drivers’ union).

Syntagma: the metro station and the square.

Syntagma: In front of the parliament.

The widespread tactic of riot police to throw stones and marbles at protestors was ordered from above, as this video shows. About 15” into the video, the head of the unit (heads of riot police units hold no helmet) directs his men to pick up stones and marbles and hurdle them back.

    SUDECON DECONTAMINATION WIPES: Has a patented formula that works faster and more consistently to clean up individuals exposed to OC, CS and CN. It strips the chemical agents from the skin instantly and takes away the burn and opens eyes in just 7 to 15 minutes-or less. They require NO soap or water, contain all natural ingredients and NO alcohol. Similar to a wet wipe you get at a restaurant, Sudecon is a cloth-type paper wipe, containing a non-tearing liquid solution. By placing the towelette over your face and thoroughly wipe the OC and CS off your face, eyes, nose and mouth. currently in used by the military and police officers.

    Somebody needs to start arming the Greek populace against the complete brutality of these murderous pigs. There needs to be a November 17th and Revolutionary Struggle X a 1000 to take down this regime of swine.

    THIS is terrorism. Not only people need gas masks they need to find where all those chemicals are stocked and destroy it and then stop it from getting manufactured or from entering the country.

    You could be right but pig brother is too big in this modern times.
    Therefore one needs to destroy/block internet, phone, tv, cameras aso.
    It’s smarter to bring a stillstand or wreck the economy that heavy that only “primitive” life works: sun + water!
    The system can’t function as peasant farmers but the people as farmers and also without money!
    Greek people must stay on their way: Don’t pay no taxes, keep on with black labour and create an even bigger black market!

    Seems to me now the best thing to do now is mass non compliance. considering the huge mobilizations, a lot of peope can refuse to pay taxes,start doing trade/favour always instead of even using money,the teachers organize classes independent from public schools,public dinners,free transportation when is possible etc… Thats the way,ignore their bores and their laws,start being more independent from the system n it will fall when the people prove with solidarity is possible to make a way better society n the speculators,politicians are useless.I know it can sound naive,but thats the only option left… If they gonna accept the bailout anyway,declare money has no value.

    I recognize the value of non-compliance, but urban guerilla warfare must also be deployed. The people of Greece are strong, they will not stand for this betrayal. Let the pigs and politicians fear death, it is most certainly coming for them.

    More demos today for the second vote?

    Good to follow the example set in Chania, Crete, if true, by trashing local PASOK offices…Any ‘soft’ state target and then gravitate upwards…

  15. As for the video on clubbing the protester on his head, I think it is reasonable to say, that after such an act, this filth should be attacked right away. I don’t really understand the situation because I saw in many cases that the comrades in greece protect themselves and show immediate response to such a behavior. The cop should have been brought to the ground right away!
