(en) Greece: Heavily clothed riots in the Exarchy again -- The aim of the repression is to send refugees to detention camps. [machine translation]

Date Tue, 14 Jul 2020 08:37:53 +0300

On Saturday, July 4, around midnight, heavily-clothed people appeared in Victoria's anarchist district of Exarchia. The aim of the event was to move people without papers into the horrible hole of Anygdalez. Anygdaleza is a state-run detention center (in the old language a prison or concentration camp), about whose deplorable conditions the corporate press also writes. The reason for the intervention was, of course, as always, the serious concerns of law enforcement officers about the health of the people camping in the square in the Athens district. After the campers refused to cooperate and many people in solidarity joined the conflict, the police tried to forcibly squeeze several people into Anton. They detained about ten people and released some of them immediately.

After a while, the refugees calmed down and the people who came to their aid began to disperse. But the intervention commander had a fichron. Fizls in hard plastic protectors began to emerge from all sides and began to beat the passing head. They beat up about twenty people and stuffed them back into the Antons. At the same time, reinforcements appeared in the square. They also had hard plastic protectors and tried to drive them all out of the square. The refugees fled to the center, some injured, others lost their relatives. Twenty-two people were taken into custody in Cyprus. Among them was a man with a dislocated shoulder and a mother whose children remained in the square. Later, the refugees returned to Victoria Square, and police blocked the street leading to the Cypriot factory on mopeds.

On Friday, July 3, the heavily-clothed people attacked the assembly and hundreds of people were taken away by Antony. They threw cannons right into the crowd and inflicted bloody injuries and burns on people. Themistocleous, Koletti, and Messolonghi threw tear gas grenades at shops, cafes, and bars on Themistocleous, smashing staff, smashing dishes and goods inside shops and cafes. Tables and chairs were thrown out of the street through shop windows. The chaos unleashed by the Fizles provoked solidarity and resistance. The inhabitants of the affected streets let people go home and hid them from the rampage of uniforms. Some protested from the balconies, others took to the streets to join the fight.

The exarchy has been under constant siege since the right-wing New Democracy settled in government. However, the autonomous district also faced attacks during the reign of the new-left Syriza. Self-governing stateless and free solidarity with refugees, which works much better than any state or private institution, is a thorn in the side of the authorities.
