Many UK anarchists have been surprised by the intensity and longevity of the Greek rebellion, that exploded onto the streets on the night of 6th December 2008, following the police murder of 15 year old Alexis Grigoropoulos , in the Eksarhia area of Athens. Demos, occupations, riots, strikes, sabotage and expropriations continued for 17 days before slacking off over the holiday period, although here in the UK the mainstream media effectively dropped the story after 4 or 5 days.
Solidarity with Greek workers & street militants!
As the global recession caused by capitals greed sees thousands of jobs cut across Bristol and the south west, hundreds of thousands cut across the UK, and millions condemned to unemployment across Europe and the world. We, some Bristol activists and anarchists, express solidarity with the Greek street fighters and working class in their inspiring struggle against their repressive state and the attacks by international capital. Today’s general strike in Greece, and the resistance of recent days, is an example for us all.
