Wednesday 3rd March 2010 greece salonika athens

  • Clashes between pensioners who were demonstrating in Athens and pigs who were protecting a government building. The "social character" of the state was proved for one more time by sending special pigs' units against third age people.


  • Demonstration in Thessaloniki town by anti-capitalistic organizations against the government and EU economical program. Also many panhellenic protests organized by KKE (Communistic Parliamentary Party).
  • Demonstration in Ioannina town against the economical programm organized by Initiative of Struggle and Resistance with participation of out-parliamentary communists, anarchists, individuals, libertarian parliamentary communists.
  • N.V., 21 years old, who was prejailed after being accused for participation in the Conspiracy Cells of the Fire Urban Guerrilla Organization was released today. The comrade has been in pre-jail custody since the 1st of February, when he was arrested, because of a finger-print of him on a plastic bag which was found inside the so called "terrorists hide-out" by the antiterrorist pig forces.

  • Four local TV-stations in Patras town squatted for some minutes by members of PAME (syndicalists of communistic parliament party). The workers entered the buildings of the TV-stations before the beginning of the news and announced a manifestation about the mobilization demonstrations on the 4th March against the economical program of the goverment and EU.

Thursday 4th March 2010

  • Members of PAME squatted the Ministry of Finance for seven hours close to the parliament in the city of Athens. The syndicalists have organized mobilization actions in 62 different towns around Greece and call for a General Strike for tomorrow against the government's economical program. GSEE (General Confederation of Workers Greece), the official bourgeoisie organization that can register one more General Strike, event that a lot of workers and unions ask for, refuses to announce for it.

Foto from the Ministry of Finance:

  • The front-glass at the offices of PASOK ("socialistic" party on government) in Arta town got smashed during last night. One more action against the economical plans of the government ...
  • State Agency of Workers' Care building was squatted this mourning by nurses in Thessaloniki. A demonstration also took place at 10:00 against the government's economical plans.
  • General Accounting State Office in Athens squatted by dismissed workers of Olympic Airways.
  • Early in the mourning was finished the panhellenic strike of taxi drivers. As they say, if the government will insist in the economical program they will start a General Continuesly Strike.
  • Workers of United Textiles squatted the offices of Region Eastern Macedonia-Thrace in Komotini town. They also escalate their actions against the government and EU economical program.
  • Demonstration in Athens with the participation of almost 16.000 people. Around 10.000 in the block of independant base's syndicates, out-parliamentary communistic organizations, anarchists, etc. and the rest of the people at the block of PAME. Some clashes with cops in front of the parliament who used tear-gas against the protestors who responded with stones. Some banks smashed down, some multinational shopping malls. Barricades also at Akademias & Sinas streets and clashes with special pigs' forces. People also have stopped the traffic in several avenues informing the people to join the actions. Mass Media in Greece refuse to report about the mobilizations. Another important thing is that the people in the streets are really angry and carry lot of rage which do not have any problem to express: the attacks against cops happen at once when it is needed, but also many people discuss with them trying to explain that in their uniforms they only serve the rich elite of this system. Also, some independant researches (and not payed polls with pre-made results) show that 95.5% of the people in Greece do not believe in what Mass Media present. Together with these results the state propaganda about "national unity and obedience to the austerity program" is not believed by people.

did anyone speak of a
“…A handful of capitalists
have organized a criminal gang
and have kidnapped the proletarians,
demanding for ransom
their labor force,
merchandising their human activity,
their time (which is turned into money),
their own being itself…”

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".
Watch live streaming video from agitprop at

A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.

To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
