There has been some sexual harrasments on the last two
days in the university campus in Thessaloniki. These
harassment were made by men who call themselves
anarchists. After those events, women came together
and made talks on these harassments and sexism in the
campus and in anarchist circles. On the night of 17

squatted the stage and read their manifesto. Manifesto
is as follows:

organisations on the local anarchist radio of the
campus.Actions of anarcha-feminists will go on in
Thessaloniki. wAit!!
