At the same night, a counter-information event took place at the main square of Heraklion. People attempted to re-approach the PIKPA squat and clashes with the police followed; police chase, beat and arrest four people, all of which were injured during their arrests.
In the morning of Thursday 17/2, the arrested appeared before the prosecutor general – two of them face felonies. After this procedure had ended, riot police once again attacked those who had gathered in solidarity with their batons and tear gas.
In response to all the above events, people in solidarity occupied two TV stations on Thursday night.
A demonstration against police repression has been called for Friday, 18/2 at 6pm at the Lions Square in Heraklion.
