Theodoris Sipsas' trial beginning, London solidarity event (UK)
The “Marfin” case trial against anarchist comrade Theodoris Sipsas is due to start in Athens tomorrow (Monday 1 December). Theodoris is being framed for the deaths of three bank employees who died when the Marfin bank was set on fire during a Greek general strike in May 2010.
The frame-up is crude. Theodoris Sipsas says, “the case file clearly proves, through witness statements, photographic material and videos from CCTV cameras that I had nothing to do with any attack, at any time, that day in the centre of Athens”. The Greek state has reopened the case to use it as a political weapon against the anarchists and protest movements in Greece, part of their “theory of two extremes” that tries to equate the wave of social revolts since 2008 with the murders carried out by the Golden Dawn nazis.
See this pamphlet (pdf, 8 pages) for a full account.
