#279 | An employee of the burnt bank speaks out on tonight’s tragic deaths in Athens – please spread

Wednesday, May 5, 2010 Tonight’s tragic deaths in Athens leave little space for comments – we are all very shocked and deeply saddened by the events. To those (on the “Occupied London” blog even) who speculate that the deaths might have been caused purposefully by anarchists, we can only reply the following: we do not take to the streets, we do not risk our freedom and our lives confronting the greek police in order to kill other people. Anarchists are not murderers, and no brainwashing attempted by Greek PM Papandreou, the... [Lire la suite]

War-Zone Athens: three people dead, many buildings burning as general strike march turns into a battle

Three people have suffocated to death as a result of a fire in Marfin Bank during ongoing battles between anti-measure protesters and police in Athens. The Athens protest march marking the zenith of the general strike called for the 5th of May was attended by an approximate 200,000 (20,000 which is the foreign broadcast number referring to the PAME march alone), although because of lack of media coverage due to the media participation in the general strike no concrete estimates can be made. After the PAME (Communist Party union)... [Lire la suite]

General strike paralyses Greece

Greece has been brought to a standstill as angry workers stage a general strike over planned austerity measures. All flights are grounded and no trains or ferries are running as transport workers join public sector staff who began a 48-hour strike on Tuesday. Thousands have taken part in rallies in Athens and police have clashed with some protesters outside parliament. Spending cuts and tax rises are planned in return for a 110bn euro (£95bn) rescue package for Greece's economy. Parliament is to vote on the measures by the end... [Lire la suite]

Athens May Day erupts in battles

Labour May the 1st has erupted in pitched battles in Athens with many arrests and two people seriously injured. Labour May the 1st (May Day) is a day for token trade union parades in greece, but the IMF related austerity measures that have cast their long shadow on the country made sure no one was expecting a peaceful demonstration today. Four different demos had been called in Athens, reflecting existing class and political differences. One by PAME, the Communist Party controlled trade union umbrella, gathered at Syntagma...

TERREMOTO Y CATASTROFE CAPITALISTA

Sábado 27 de febrero en la madrugada: un impresionante terremoto azota a vastas zonas de este territorio llamado chile. Luego se agregan devastadores tsunamis. Las imágenes posteriores son dantescas, así como la respuesta de las autoridades (desde la milica socialdemócrata de bachelet, hasta la alcaldesa fascista de concepción) : a la ineficiencia absoluta y el tratar de disminuir la magnitud de lo ocurrido, se suma la coordinación de la represión y el toque de queda, militarizando vastas zonas del país para imponer el orden del...

(By an anonymous comrade) It would be very good if – since you have the means with which to spread information - you could publicise what’s going on in... [Lire la suite]
