On Saturday 6th December Greek police killed a 15 year-old boy on the streets of Athens. Since then thousands have taken to the streets, hundreds of police stations, banks and government buildings have been burnt across the country. School and university students have often been leading demonstrations and clashes while widening the social debate through occupying campuses.
Solidarity actions have spread across Europe, Australia and the United States. Embassies have been occupied or burnt and protesters have clashed with police in several cities. Many protesters have been arrested and imprisoned and subjected to police brutality in a systematic and coordinated attack against solidarity movements.
This revolt was a response to the murdering of young Alexandros, releasing the social need to revolt against the police state, and the increasing social and financial repression and exclusion.
Everywhere police repression, harassment, evictions, beatings and killings are the everyday terror of state control. The movement against repression and control is gaining momentum. We call to take this movement to the streets.
On the 14th of December we call for a demonstration at 14:30 at Dalston (Dalston Lane) Peace Mural, Hackney, London.
Ways to get there: From Liverpool Street Station bus 149
By train to Dalston Kingsland Station.
From Central London Buses: 38, 73, 30, 67, 243.
The meeting point point for Sunday's demo in solidarity to the struggle in Greece has changed. We're meeting at outside Dalston Kingsland Station. Sorry for the confusion
Pussies? I don't know.
Trying to figure out how to get round this. Maybe?
Experienced all this before. Yes
Hopefully, Sunday will be better in turn out.
Happy that you went though! Solidarity!
