167 | Info-night on the situation in Greece, Thursday 14.1 at the Lift’N'Hoist
What’s happening in Greece? Just over one year ago, the shooting of teenager Alexandros Grigoropoulos by the police fired a massive scale reaction from the anti-authoritarian youth. The riots kicked off (and still go on) in a country facing a big economic crisis, but what impresses us most is the determination and resistance of this movement. Their aim is a complete change in state and society: so should we dare to speak the word? A revolution. Then, another important item for a discussion: a couple of months ago Alfredo Bonanno, one of the most controversial and known figures of insurrectionary anarchism, was arrested in Greece along with Christos Stratigopoulos shortly after a bank robbery had taken place. He’s now held in prison under conditions that are unbearable for anyone, and less for an old, sick, brave man who has already been deprived of his freedom for a long time.
Join us if you’re interested in knowing more about the actual situation in Greece, in learning more about struggles against the appalling conditions in Greek jails and news concerning the particularly severe conditions of detention of Alfredo and Christos.
