Three years from the death of Alexandros Grigoropoulos: news, videos and photos from the Athenian streets today

Athens saw two commemorative demonstrations for Alexis Grigoropoulos today: the first one in the morning called by high school students, and the second one called by anarchists, leftists and grassroots trade unions. Both demos saw clashes with the police around Syntagma square; as of this time (21:10 GMT+2) some lower intensity clashes continue around the Exarcheia area.

Earlier on, riot police had stormed the anarchist social space Nosotros in Exarcheia. As of 6 pm local time, there were 9 arrests, 6 detentions and 14 police injured according to a police report. The number is bound to increase during the night.

    What i always wonder is, why nobody uses slings except the palestinian kids.
    I mean real slings not a slingshot, which never can reach the range and the heavy impact of a sling. Slings have been used in warfare until the 17. century- even in europe. You can sling a stone (30 gr) easily about 100- 150 meters and if you are skilled you can hit a persons face within the range of 40 to 60 meters. It si useful for snipers in riots and especially for defense of spaces because slingers can move fast, shoot, move and hide again.:

    And greecs don’t forget: You have a great slinging tradition: there a two styles of slinging, the greec style and the byzantine style named after the techniques used in Greece for hundreds of years. You should now reanimate this tradition:

    @RAVACHOL this fight is not possible to win by weapons. If they use slings the police will shoot. If the demonstrators shoot the army will join the protest. They have the weapons and they will win. It is a complete other situation than in 1973. Today the only chance is a coalition of the masses against the captialists and all the people which believe in their ideology. And we have to create an alternative masterplan. When they say TINA we must say: look this is our plan. The first step of all is a coalition between all lefties. Without this we will become a strong conservative-capitalistic society with many loosers out of rights.

    @Ysamar also worth noting that all the mentioned thugs (police, and the army) are literally nothing without the wider industrial support that they relying on. Those projectiles has to be produced as well as you need to feed them.
    Insurrection, sabotage, general indefinite strike together constitutes a revolution, not only slinging.

    @ysamar and shelter of crime
    I confess, i have abused the topic and this board to repopularize an occupation, which is very interesting and also a weapon: slinging. A bunch of slings won’t solve any problem, I know. But a coalition of all leftists won’t solve any problem either. There will be no more national revolutions anymore, there is no changing of something called society. there is no better world to achieve for THE GREECS. There are no the greecs, the germans……There are people who can cooperate, organize themselfs and create and build up free and egalitarian spaces. This spaces have to be defended.
    But now- look at the pictures above: You see students throwing stones about 10 to 30 meters. Why not use a sling? There won’t be an escalation until you don’t kill pigs. And by the way training with a sling is so much fun, just try it, if you have enough open space………

    @ALL: Its very simple. A delegation of Greek anarchists have to go to Mrs. Papariga and make love to her. Although to the other ‘leaders’ of left parties. Sitting around a table, finding a compromise, creating an alternative plan. You think its not possible? Damn. Your thinking of ‘no possibiliy’ is the winning of capitalism, nothing else.

    If we create a new left Opposition without the ancient labels of “anarchism” or “communism” millions will follow. And if this works in Greece, other countries will follow because the time has come. Actually this szenario is the biggest fear of the bosses in the rich northern states!

    And if some youths decide to use sildes against the pigs… why not but it has no effect for the big changes.

    I don’t like the KKE and Mrs. Papariga. I don’t like authoritarian Socialism and Communism. Once again: The world is already a plurality. Homogeneous Solutions are reactionary. I don’t want no “Volksfront” and no nation even no socialist nation. **** all nations. Even anarchists have to face the fact, that future will be plural or there will be nation- and empirebased dictatorship, like in Hungaria, China, Russia……
    We already have to build up free communities, networks and the ability to defend them in a confused world, which offers a lot secret, forgotten and simply uncontrolled spaces. Don’t get me to romantic, I have not watched to many pirate movies… But there is more erosion than political control, more confusion than dictatorship because the rulers don’t have the control anymore: Peak oil, climate change, a lot of “failed” states and asymmetric political actors. We have to use this confusion and don’t wait for a global or national revolution or Mrs. Papariga, to whom i would never make love- besides.

    @RAVACHOL: Sorry but you dont understand. It seems that you think in ancient categories and your automaticley reflex on progressive solutions is reactionary. A strategic coalition has nothing to do with homogenenous solutions, volksfront and so on. You can build free communities and lots of other things whatever you like. On the other hand without a ‘compromised movement’ you and the other millions will be slaves within the capitalist system and the situation will getting more and more stable longer as we wait. I promise you in in few years we will have in Greece the same unpolitical stupid mass like in Germany without any perspective of changes. This is the way that the system works.
