Athens, Greece: Claim of responsibility for car arsons in Philopappou Hill near Koukaki area

Sunday, February 23rd, 2020

Four VIP van (Tourist small taxis buses) arsons took place in the early hours of Wednesday in Koukaki, near Philopappou Hill.

We carried out this attack as retaliation and a sign of solidarity with the people who were beaten and arrested by the forces of State repression during the reoccupation of the squats in Koukaki as well in solidarity with those arrested after the buildings were recaptured.

The target was selected near the squats firstly to remind to the cops that no matter how hard they try they can’t protect neighbourhoods from black-hooded people and secondly because these vehicles exist only to serve tourists and the tourism industry.

“There is a right to the brick.
There is a right on the stick.
There is a right to Molotovs in Exarchia, or anywhere.
There is a right to car arson.
There is a right to armed struggle.
There is a right to revolt and liberation from slavery.“

Chrysochoidis (Minister of Citizen Protection of Greece)

Athens, Greece: Solidarity Statement from Imprisoned Members of Revolutionary Struggle to the Koukaki Squatting Community

SOLIDARITY TO THE COMRADES OF THE KOUKAKI SQUATTING COMMUNITY

Since the end of August 2019, the state has launched a wide-scale crackdown on self-organized structures, occupations of the anti-authoritarian space and against squats, which also housed refugees and immigrants, mainly families with children. The present ND (Νέα Δημοκρατία / New Democracy) government is attempting to level everything left standing by the previous SYRIZA government, which had made more selective progress, with the goal of evicting squats of either immigrants or self-organized spaces of struggle.

The Koukaki Squatting Community is one of these self-organized structures of struggle, which was evicted some time ago, but their comrades in arms recaptured it yesterday which led to a second intervention by the police which resulted in the arrests and beatings of the comrades and those acting in solidarity. The dynamic resistance of the Koukaki Squatting Community who fought against the MAT (Riot Police) and the EKAM (Special Anti-Terrorist Unit) twice during eviction operations for the first time in such cases in Greece, is an exemplary stance to defend the options and practices of struggle that we should never abandon.
