Greece: Pigs Life Threateningly Injure Demonstrator, Fascists and Pigs Attacking Immigrants and Squats

Due to lack of time, just the essentials to spread the info. Regular and more complete updates on the situation can be found on Occupied London.

INJURED DEMONSTRATOR

„According to available information, the injured demonstrator has exited surgery in deep coma, and he was transfered to the intensive care unit. Doctors consider the next few days as critical.

A statement from doctors’ union branch at General Nikaia hospital [EINAP], on service today:

Today, we witnessed the the barbarism of the IMF government, which seeks to repress every healthy act of resistance to their plans, laid out by Greek and international capital, and faithfully implemented by their local servants. Dozens of injured demonstrators were transfered to our hospital by ambulances, or by themeselves. Most of them were suffering from fractured skulls. Among them, a 30-year old demonstrator, which arrived in a serious antemortem [“prothanatio“] state, anisocoria and extradural hematoma. At this moment, he is in surgery, operated by colleagues fighting to save his life. We denounce this form of police brutality, and consider the members of Greek government as responsible for this attempt at murder, as well as all attacks upon demonstrators.Violence and repression against the people will not serve them much longer.“

FASCISTS AND COPS ATTACK VILLA AMALIAS AND IMMIGRANTS

Current Situation:
40-50 people, some fascists, are currently (20.46 GMT+2) at the corner of Tritis Septemvriou Street and Ipirou. Anyone heading to Villa, be very careful.

According to the first, raw information coming in, the scuffles began when anarchists at Villa Amalias realised there was a small group of neo-nazis on Victoria Square attacking migrants, and headed there to attack them in return. Scuffles quickly broke out and the police that appeared tried to push the anarchists back toward Villa Amalias.

Many riot police units mixed up with fascists at the side of Victoria Square at the moment.

Yesterday:

„At dawn today a 44-year old man was stabbed to death by three people unknown, most likely for the camera he would be using to record the birth of his child. Organised neo-nazis tried to take advantage of the tragic incident and to turn it into a racist pogrom, calling for a gathering at the junction of Tritis Septemvriou and Ipirou street, in central Athens – only a few yards away from Exarcheia. Approximately one-hundred people gathered, including people not necessarily holding racist views. From the first moment of the gathering, the neonazis started chasing any migrant who would pass by the spot. Hearing about the gathering, anarchists gathered at both the squats of Skaramanga and Villa Amalias, which are nearby. As anarchists report from Skaramanga, at some point fascists appeared at the junction of Patision and Ipirou Street, and some fascists started chasing migrants. The anarchists prepared to face them with flags, stones and helmets. The riot police units accompanying the fascists turned toward the anarchists and started firing tear gas toward them. The anarchists retreated in their building and the police followed, throwing tear gas inside the squat. Anarchists inside the squat, in the higher floors, “treated” the fascists with a number of flying objects.“
