things are really hotting up esp in regards to 17N. the media re crazy, with 
all their wild stories and lies. two tv channels are really bad. as a result 
there have been big attacks on them. cameras were smashed at a number of 
demos. last tuesday we had a huge demo denouncing medias role, creating a 
culture of informers, anti left hysteria. of course media said the demo was 
in support of 17n not true. Felt like we are in midst of dictatorship, the 
way they whipped it up frightening folk not to go, but go they did about 
3000 people rocked up, no riots to their disappointment. unfortunately some 
demonstrators spraypainted pro17n slogans. The following evening 20 hooded 
anarchos smashed offices of a newspaper and following nite the cops did the 
rounds at a number of social centres, exarhia, and picked up 60 people for 
questioning, all later released. yes they killed 27 politicians, cops, cia 
chief etc but what about all the others dead-30 workers have died at olympic 
village this year, still no prosecution of ferry owner responsible 2 years 
ago for ferry sinking and 80- dead. 17n are clearly now presenting 
themselves as polit. prisoners some of them and its probably a wise move 
given some people were pissed off initially when some lagged each other in.

on saturday, big anti war demo in crete as all eu defense ministers met 
there, clashes with cops.
went to an anarcho fest 2 weeks ago up on a hill in exarhia with videos 
(that london squatting one from after war 2) and bands, puppet show by some 
spanish women comrades. lots of kids surprisingly. on saturday went to 
pikrodafni social centre and met up with others.
council elections on sunday, what a load of hoo ha, demos , flags crap.
big garbo strike in saloniki at the moment and street market workers were on 
strike last week over plans to force them to have tills.
