Solidarity meeting outside the Central Courts at 16:00 on Sunday.
The meeting in solidarity to those arrested, which was
called by anarchists/ antiauthoritarians has been
attacked by police's special forces
The people arrested were going to be taken to the
Central Courts of Thessaloniki at about 5 pm today.
All eye witnesses report heavy repression, beatings
and humiliation of those arrested. A solidarity
message was issued last night from within the police-
surrounded university. A solidarity demo took place in
Copenhagen, Denmark. Even at this time there are
checks and random arrests at the city's streets.

Saturday 21/6

>From 5.00 p.m. there were demonstrations in the centre
of the city, with up to 100.000 people participating.
At about 5.45 p.m. the black block started clashing
with the police in Egnatia Avenue. The riot police
made extensive use of chemical agents and physical
force and there were tens of arrests.

A part of the black block returned to the University,
where for hours sporadic clashes continued with the
police forces. For a moment it seemed that the
university asylum would be cancelled, but finally
everything ended calmly, with the people inside ending
the occupation of Philoshophical school and leaving
safely after mediation. The occupations of
Antiauthoritarian Movement Salonica and Struggle
Initiative will continue normally.
