Around 1000 anarchists marched yesterday in the centre of Athens
protesting against the Olympic games. Modern Olympic games
have nothing to do with the Ancient ones, which are
over-exaggerated anyway. Modern Olympics are all about steroids
money and “security” meaning more cops and cameras on
the streets. 300 new cameras are already placed in Athens and there
are more to come, people are being constantly harassed by the
police and things will get even worse. 18 workers have died building
the “Olympic dream” due to little or no precautions taken by
the building companies. During the whole march the cops were
literally breathing down our necks, as the march finished they
finally attacked us with teargas, luckily, in a small scale. Things will
be much rougher during the summer, when there is a fear that
protests will be banned, of course were not giving in and we invite
all are brothers and sisters from abroad, to join us during the
summer in our protests against the Olympic games.

LET THE OLYMPIC GAMES DIE IN THE COUNTRY IN, WHICH THEY WERE BORN!
