Police in Athens courthouse attacks people gathered in solidarity to those arrested during last night’s antifascist action

On the evening of October 1st, approximately 300 people gathered in the courthouse of Athens in solidarity with the anti-fascists who had been arrested on the previous night, during the antifascist action in the Agios Panteleimonas neighbourhood of Athens. Inside the courthouse, things were calm for the largest part, until the moment when the imprisoned anti-fascists exited the building to enter the police vehicles (to be transferred back to the police HQ). At that point, the police attacked the gathering, chasing people inside the courthouse’s yard and then in the nearby streets. Approx. 20 more people were detained during the police operation. In total, 4 people were arrested and they will appear in the court on Tuesday morning.
