Athens: Reportback from Demonstration in Exarchia (January 14th)
On Saturday evening, January 14th 2017, some fifty people participated in the demonstration on the streets of Exarchia called by the anarchist squat Themistokleous 58 on the occasion of completion of one year of the project. The demonstration’s banner read “Resistance, Revolt, Freedom” in English and Farsi, and another banner was dropped from the squat in memory of Shahzad Luqman, murdered by Nazis in Ano Petralona in January 2013: “We do not forget Shahzad Luqman – Bash the fash.” During the action, we handed out leaflets in Greek and English, threw flyers, and shouted many slogans in Farsi, Arabic, English, French and Greek.
We thank all those who attended the demonstration in Exarchia. We also send solidarity greetings to individuals, groups and communities inside and outside walls and borders that continue to fight by all available means against Power. We remind that on Saturday evening, January 21st, we’re having a solidarity party at the 58 to support our project financially. Proceeds will cover operational needs of the squat and future actions.
