The Anarchist Demo has finished a few minutes ago. Thousands of people
joined it and it was a fascinating demo.
At about 6 o' clock, the people that gathered in front of the IMC info
point in the University Campus, headed out of the University towards the
demo meeting point. we were about 3000. The spirit was excellent.
Olympiados street was flooded with people, most of them anarchists.
Whenever we reached a point where the road was either descending or
going up and there was a view from the street filled with people, the
block was bursting into clapping and screaming. the demo passed through
Ollympiados street and then through Sykies and Neapoli, which are
neighborhoods where most of the Thessaloniki's immigrants are living.
people were shouting slogans all the time, all kind of slogans, some of
them expressing solidarity to immigrants and some againts the cops.
people were out, at their balconies, clapping at the Demo. the presence
of the police was not that obvious at first but then they started
following the demo with cameras and under-cover cops. from the moment
that the demo reached Agiou Dimitriou street and then to Egnatia there
was riot police in every row.in Egnatia the demo crossed the demo
organised by the antirracist initiative of thessaloniki. the number of
the people who have joined our demo has increased a lot and towards the
end of the of the demo the anarchist block was counting over 6000
people. the route was a lot of kilometres and towards the end people
were exhausted and did not have the strength to shout any more slogans.
throughout the demo the walls of the city were filled with slogans and a
few cameras hanging over the streets were destroyed. the attitude of the
people participating was exemplary and the demo started out and finished
the way it was planed. it was na excellent demo and a wonderful
experience for all those who joined it. the bloody weather did not
bother us at all.

A very good start!
