ATHENS GREECE NEWS 30/7 from media papers....

Two armed robbers made off with just under half a million euros yesterday after holding up a branch of Alpha Bank in Mandra, western Attica, police said. The pair broke into the bank through a side door used by staff at around 8 a.m., before the branch had opened to the public. They forced the cashiers to fill their bags and made off with an estimated 440,000 euros in cash.

Police figures made public yesterday show a drop in robberies and burglaries which the force attributes to a reinforcement of its patrols in Attica and the provinces. A total of 6,833 bank raids and break-ins were reported in June, down from 7,265 in May and 8,773 in March. Of these raids, 3,870 were reported in Attica last month, as compared to 4,400 in May and 5,584 in March. Figures for April were not published. There was a particularly sharp drop in the number of bank robberies reported in Attica. Nine were reported in June, compared to 40 in March.

Most petrol stations continue to run dry - truckers to decide their future actions today

The re-supply of gas stations with petrol continues to face problems, despite the government's decision to proceed with the civil mobilization of trucks yesterday.
Truck drivers will vote whether they will go on with their mobilizations during a general union meeting at 12 pm today.
Their decision will be based on the meeting they had yesterday with Transports minister Dimitris Reppas.
Truckers requested tax provisions and cuts, a five year-long period of adjustment for those who recently purchased their business licenses before the full opening of their profession, and the gradual drop of the price of the license before it becomes available with no charge.

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".

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.
