Exarchia

In the afternoon of 14/09 we broke into a restaurant in Exarchia square. Last summer this establishment opened its doors and was destined to become another bastion of drug trafficking in Exarchia.

For us, this action is part of a broader struggle against State plans to install drug trafficking in Exarchia, in order to undermine the antisocial-libertarian character of the area. It should be noted that although the squadrons of the MAT [riot control police] encamp near the square, drug trafficking continues unabated.

On August 26th, riot police under orders from the newly elected right-wing government stormed and evicted four squatted social centers in the Exarchia neighborhood of Athens, Greece, in a serious attack on both precarious migrants and the anarchist and anti-authoritarian movements. In response, Greek anarchists have organized assemblies and demonstrations, while solidarity efforts have poured out from across the world.

Recent evictions of several squats, some housing refugees and migrants, mark the beginning of a new chapter of repression and dissent in Greece.

In the autonomous Athens neighborhood of Exarcheia on the morning of Monday, August 26, hundreds of masked riot cops with tear gas at hand cordoned off an entire block. Overhead, helicopters circled the scene.
