300 anarchists demonstrated in Thessaloniki,
Greece against the EU-Summit for Energy on
Saturday, February 22nd. The demo started at
Kamara in the centre of the city and marched
towards a small route in the centre surrounded by
large forces of Units of Restoration to Order (the
greek CRS) and cops with civil dressing. There were
two banners, the front, of the organising team of the
demo "CAPITALISM HATES LIFE - WE FIGHT IT
ALWAYS AND EVERYWHERE" and another one
"THE STATES ARE THE ONLY TERRORISTS".
The presence was very much decent, chanting all the
time against the war, the EU, the state, the cops, for
solidarity with prisoners, with immigrants. Returned
back to Kamara sq., near the universities where
there was a discussion between anarchist groups and
individuals later.

Photos of the demo can be found at

Meanwhile, other organisations like the Greek
Social Forum did no propaganda against the
EU-Sumit at all and the only ones calling for demo
in the city were anarchists.

The Summit was held in HYATT REGENCY
hotel-casino far away from the city and forces of the
Greek Communist Party, syndicalists, leftists and
the Antiauthoritarian Move Salonica 2003 gathered
500m away.
