A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

From: dr.woooo@ - http://www.resistance2003.gr/en
The decisions that have been made by the panhellenic meeting of the
Antiauthoritarian Movement Salonika 2003, about the actions that we will
organize during the European summit in June of 2003 in Thessaloniki.
> Accommodation
The accommodation needs of the comrades who will correspond to our call will be
met in a big space in Aristotle's University of Thessaloniki, which is in the
centre of the city. This location is capable of the accommodation of a large
number of people as well as the realization of events.
> About the "support" of the demonstrations

Legal coverage

A group of lawyers has already been created in order to voluntarily be on our
side during these days so that there will be direct legal defense of the people
who may be arrested during the demonstrations.

>From the mid of May, a web site will be created, in which there will be
information about these legal teams and about the legal status quo in Greece,
translated in many different languages. When this web page is up we will send
you the electronic address.

Also, people from these legal teams have committed to be at the borders of
Greece in order to receive the comrades from abroad and take any legal action
that is necessary if they are not allowed to enter the country.

Medical support

A group of comrades, doctors and medical students has been created in order to
be in the demonstrations with the necessary equipment to provide first aid when
needed. Among the plans of this group is to make, up until the days of the
summit, first aid seminars, as well as to publish leaflets with useful medical

Discussions and events

The accommodation place will be open from 14/6/03, a week before the European
summit (20-21/6/03). During this week a four-day festival will take place in
order to exchange views and have a better coordination of our actions.

This festival, besides everything else (concerts, screenings, exhibitions
etc.), will hold four major discussions (one for each day), which will be
encircled by other smaller discussions.

The subjects of the four major discussions are:

Globalization - New order - War
"Fortress" Europe - Suppression - Immigrants
Labor in modern capitalism
Antiglobalization movements and Antiauthoritarians-Anarchists
Some subjects that have been suggested until now for the smaller discussions
have to do with education, art and mass media.

The demonstrations

Our decision is that on the first day of the summit (20/6/03) we will have a
demonstration near the place where there will be held. This place is far from
the centre of the city and for this reason we will go there probably with
buses. On the second day (21/6/03) we will have a demonstration in the centre
of Thessaloniki.

Discussion about the practical issues of the demonstrations will be held on the
fourth day of the festival (19/6/03), which means one day before the first

What we ask from you

If it is possible, we would like to have your response until the 20th of May
regarding the following:

When do you plan to come and approximately how many people do you think you
will be, so that we will know what are the needs that we have to cover
regarding the accommodation.
Through which countries and exactly when will you arrive in Greece so that
comrades and lawyers wait for you at the borders.
If your group/organization wants to have a stand where it will exhibit its
material, it would be good to let us know in time so that we can prepare the
place better.
If your group/organization wants to make a statement at some of our major
discussions, we would like to know beforehand if it is possible, so that we can
determine a better final program, the duration of the discussions and events
and to have the right translators at every discussion.
Let us know soon if your group/organization wants to put its name on the poster
of the festival.
Finally, let us know if you have to suggest any other subjects that can be
presented by you in parallel discussions, so that we can arrange the program of
the festival.
We expect your answers until the 20th of May in reference to these issues, as
well as any other questions regarding the events against the European summit.
