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

We send you this e-mail in order to inform you about
the decisions that have been made by the panhellenic
meeting of the Antiauthoritarian Movement Salonica
2003, about the actions that we will organize during the
European summit in June of 2003 in Thessaloniki.
> Accommodation
The accommodation needs of the comrades who will
correspond to our call will be met in a big space in
Aristotle's University of Thessaloniki, which is in the
centre of the city. This location is capable of the
accommodation of a large number of people as well as
the realization of events.

About the "support" of the demonstrations.

Legal coverage

A group of lawyers has already been created in order to
voluntarily be on our side during these days so that
there will be direct legal defense of the people who may
be arrested during the demonstrations.

From the mid of May, a web site will be created, in
which there will be information about these legal teams
and about the legal status quo in Greece, translated in
many different languages. When this web page is up
we will send you the electronic address.

Also, people from these legal teams have committed to
be at the borders of Greece in order to receive the
comrades from abroad and take any legal action that is
necessary if they are not allowed to enter the country.

Medical support

A group of comrades, doctors and medical students has
been created in order to be in the demonstrations with
the necessary equipment to provide first aid when
needed. Among the plans of this group is to make, up
until the days of the summit, first aid seminars, as well
as to publish leaflets with useful medical instructions.

Discussions and events

The accommodation place will be open from 14/6/03, a
week before the European summit (20-21/6/03). During
this week a four-day festival will take place in order to
exchange views and have a better coordination of our

This festival, besides everything else (concerts,
screenings, exhibitions etc.), will hold four major
discussions (one for each day), which will be encircled
by other smaller discussions.

The subjects of the four major discussions are:
· Globalization-New order-War
· "Fortress" Europe-Suppression-Immigrants
· Labor in modern capitalism
· Antiglobalization movements and

Some subjects that have been suggested until now for
the smaller discussions have to do with education, art
and mass media.

The demonstrations

Our decision is that on the first day of the summit
(20/6/03) we will have a demonstration near the place
where there will be held. This place is far from the
centre of the city and for this reason we will go there
probably with buses. On the second day (21/6/03) we
will have a demonstration in the centre of Thessaloniki.

Discussion about the practical issues of the
demonstrations will be held on the fourth day of the
festival (19/6/03), which means one day before the first

What we ask from you

If it is possible, we would like to have your response
until the 20th of May regarding the following:
· When do you plan to come and approximately how
many people do you think you will be, so that we will
know what are the needs that we have to cover
regarding the accommodation.
· Through which countries and exactly when will you
arrive in Greece so that comrades and lawyers wait for
you at the borders.
· If your group/organization wants to have a stand
where it will exhibit its material, it would be good to let
us know in time so that we can prepare the place better.
· If your group/organization wants to make a statement
at some of our major discussions, we would like to know
beforehand if it is possible, so that we can determine a
better final program, the duration of the discussions
and events and to have the right translators at every
· Let us know soon if your group/organization wants to
put its name on the poster of the festival.
· Finally, let us know if you have to suggest any other
subjects that can be presented by you in parallel
discussions, so that we can arrange the program of the

We expect your answers until the 20th of May in
reference to these issues, as well as any other
questions regarding the events against the European
