(en) Greece, Athens, The surveillance cameras are not popular....

Date Sat, 15 Oct 2005 23:44:54 +0200

Earlier today about 50 anarchists/ anti-authoritarians destroyed two
surveillance cameras located by the Sigrou Avenue, close to the Panteion
University of Athens. The traffic was held on the one of the two lanes thanks
to a banner reading "sabotage the systems of social control", while at the
same time comrades were setting the camera control boxes on fire. The same
cameras had been destroyed last January, but were replaced during the summer.
More on the same subject:
Late in the night of Monday 10 to Tuesday 11 of October, while being on the
hill of Ai-Yannis, in the area of Dafni-Neos Kosmos, we came upon a sudden and
violent attack of at least 20 cops - some of them in uniforms, some others
undercovered - who, after surrounding the hill, got in with torches
and guns, swearing and threatening. After we were chased in and out
of the hill area, after some guns shot against us, we were arrested
and led to the Security Force Headquarters, in Alexandra ave. There,
we were kept completely isolated from the outer world (they wouldn't
let us make a phonecall for more than 12 hours, not even to a lawyer)
and after subsequent extortive inquisition sessions and investigation
of our homes, we were announced a bill of 6 criminal accusations,
concerning 2 nearby video-cameras having been in fire. We denied
every accusation from the very beginning, so the public prosecutor
reduced them to 3 (1 criminal offence about constructing and possessing
a molotov cocktail plus 2 minor offences about arson and damages caused).

The fact that we deny having been involved in this very case, does not
mean we disagree with such reactions to the wide-spread control by the
state against its vassals. We live the everyday asphyxiating conditions
of the suppression, the commercialization of everything and the
surveillance, widely "offered" by local and international gangs of
bosses; we consciously choose the way of resisting against every sort
of authorities. Such actions are part of the total social revolt struggle,
against what domineers our lives and keeps us far from the freedom...
