Greek police leak plan “to evict 40 squats across the country”

Mainstream media report:

The police are putting into action a plan to evict about 40 buildings that have been occupied by various groups across the country. After the intervention in the squats of Villa Amalias and Skaramanga, the ministry of public order is planning to take more action in the following days.

According to the newspaper The News, the intervention in the squat Skaramanga took place only a few hours after the attempted re-occupation of Villa Amalias on Wednesday, whilst – according to information [meaning: by the police -- trans ] – it was planned to take place after a few days. However, it was decided that it should take place immediately instead, in order to send a direct message that “situations of lawlessness will no longer be tolerated”.

Typical of the atmosphere at the Ministry of Public order was the comment made by an official: “in Villa Amalias the first squat lasted for 22 years and the second one for 22 minutes”.

At the same time the 93 arrested of Villa Amalias declare in a statement of theirs published online: “We knew that we will come under attack and obviously that we would be arrested. We will do it again as many times as it takes, for this and for any other social space of resistance of those from below that comes under attack. Neither weapons, nor their slandering scare us [...] Against the hurricane of repression, let’s pit the storm of solidarity”

As announced already, there will be more actions on Saturday. At noon on Saturday there will be a [solidarity] gathering at the Propylea [of the University of Athens].
