On the 6th of December, after a verbal conflict in the centre of
Athens, a police officer murdered 15-year-old A. Grigoropoulos. This
murder is not a single incident. It is just one among a lot resulting
in incontrollable, unpunished and arbitrary police violence.
Police in Greece murder young people, immigrants, (Romas); infringe
upon human rights torturing detainees, beating demonstrators. The
state breaks its own laws. The ones responsible are never punished.
Greek people’s revolt, triggered by that murder, is not merely blind
violence. It expresses the indignation against the economic crisis,
poverty, unemployment, workers’ precarity and the de-establishment of
the welfare state.
The whole country is rising in revolt.
