ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE OCCUPATION OF THE POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSTY OF ATHENS.
Approximately 150-160 people have been detained as a means of terrorisation whilst also preventing and deterring others from participating in demonstrations marking the anniversary of the murder of a 15 year old youth in Athens.
A year after the murder of Alexandros Grigoropolous by the Greek state, the regime enforcing army are attempting to seize every corner of the city.
The uniformed murderers have invaded the social centre, “Resalto”, in Keratsini. They attacked youths and have blockaded all entrances and exits to places of social and political struggle. They have surrounded Exarhia and the Polytechnic, and continue to make large numbers of arrests and detainments.
The puppets of the regime, the media, are transmitting state propaganda and as a result are creating an atmosphere and terror.
One year after the social upheaval of December 2008, the system of oppression and exploitation is once again attempting to re-assert its authority. The Government are attempting to enforce a state of emergency in order to drown out social utrage and enforce the silence of a cemetery on society.
Due to the seizure of the city we are occupying the Polytechnic university.
We are calling every person who wants to resist to do so by any means possible
We will keep the space, and are showing solidarity wit all those who face state persecution.
We demand the immediate release of all those arrested and detained
EVERYONE ON THE STREETS TOMORROW AT 13.30pm, PROPYLEA
WE DON’’T FORGET
WE DON’T FORGIVE
Occupied Polytechnic Athens
