A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

On June 20th, Friday about 1500 anarchists went to
Halkadiki; where the European Summit took place. The
buses departed in front of the squatted Theological
School of University about 10:00 am and after 2 hours
they reached Marmara village near the Red zone. They
started to walk towards Red Zone. They were carrying a
banner writing "Anti-authoritarian Movement
Thessaloniki 2003 Fight Back". They came face to face
with the police barricade and fighted against riot
police to reach the hotel of the summit.Anarchists
were prepared with gas masks and helmets. cops used
intensive tear gas bombs . The group was divided into
two when the first tear gases were thrown and the big
block went back to the meeting place in a controlled
way. The other one (150 people) was trying to fight
and of course was not enough so pushed back to the
meeting place (and then to the village), as 5 police
officers ran to them and set fire to the forest to
show that anarchists are just destroying, but the
anarchists could stop it. 7 people were arrested and
several were injured in conflicts. Also the police in
the city had arrested some "suspects" the day before.
They are released now. Some of the slogans were:
Cops, pigs, murderers
Freedom to all those in jail
All bosses are the same left or right
Solidarity is the weapon of people; war against war of
the bosses
Dogs; you are guarding your bosses
There is shit inside your helmets; that's why you
can't understand freedom

No Justice No Peace
Fight the police
