10,000 people march in solidarity to Villa Amalias and against state fascism in Athens

Today takes place a 10,000 people demonstration in solidarity to the 92 people arrested on Wednesday after the re-eviction of Villa Amalias and against the state-run fascism. The demonstration started from Propylaea of Athens University and marched via Patision avenue to the courthouse of Evelpidon where they remain waiting for the decision of the attorney general about the 92 arrested who still are detained. The first 10 were released a couple of hours ago until their trial.

More demonstrations in solidarity to the squats took place in Thessaloniki, Chania, Mitilini, Patra, Heracleon and to other cities.

    in a context in which attacks and fighting regularly occur it is actually important to have large scale shows of numerical strength.

    yawn. there’s already violence. and violence will be needed to secure the social spaces, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t also a need for large marches.

    Some truly ridiculous comments. Violence is useful in a context, though people on the comments seem to talk as that is the aim.

    When you have 10-15,000 people marching in solidarity against the evictions, this is the important thing.
