On the 20th till 22nd of June EU summit took place in Porto Carras 120
kilometers from Thessaloniki ,Greece. Anarchist/antiautoritarians
mobilized for the actions against the summit. Already a few days before
parts of Aristoteli University in Thessaloniki has been squatted by
anarchist in order to create space for discussions, counterinformation
and preparing actions. On Thursday 18th of June anarchist/authoritarian
demonstration in solidarity with the immigrants gathered 4000 people.

Anarchist demonstration on Saturday 21st of June, rejecting dialog with
both authorities and reformist groups choose an offensive strategy of
targeting symbols of power and capital, as well as confronting police
forces. During the demonstrations in the center of Thessaloniki over
hundred persons were detained, beaten, some tortured by police and
forced to sign the blank papers to be used for the juridical frame-up.

Twenty-nine of those have been charged. On Sunday 22nd solidarity
manifestation of about 200 participants took place in front of the
Thessaloniki court. In the same time the media and politicians been
praising the police tactics as a representation of the "real democracy
of Greek presidency". They attempted to depoliticize anarchist
demonstration defining it as "the act of vandalism ", because it was the
only part of the protest, which attacked democratic status quo based on
dialog with the power and the state. On Wednesday 25th public persecutor
and interrogation judge put in the provisional imprisonment (maximum 18
months until the trial) seven of detainees. The other 22, which has been
released (some of them on very high bails) are still facing charges and
will be trialed. In this moment in prison remain two Spanish, one
British, one Syrian political refugee living in Greece and three Greek
comrades. All the prisoners are supposed to be separated from each other
and the three Greek comrades are put in the minor's prisons known for
the horrible conditions. There is a need to extend actions of solidarity
all over the world for our imprisoned comrades.

Solidarity is a weapon! By all means necessary!
