An anarchist poem by Niklas Änsth, taken from the swedish documentary “Terrorists - The Kids They Sentenced” (2003), directed by Lukas Moodysson and Stefan Jarl, about the Gothenburg Riots during the European Union summit in Gothenburg back in 2001.

Footage from 18 May 2017 riot during the general strike in Athens, Greece against the new harsh austerity measures of 4.9 billion euros, incorporated in the 4th Memorandum signed by the greek government, aimed once again against the lower income classes rather, than the banks and the wealthy.

“Loukanikos” internationally known as the “Riot Dog” passed away today in Athens at the age of 10. His health was adversely affected by police asphyxiating gas and from being kicked from policemen in various riots, forcing him to “retire” from active protest about two years ago.

“He was on the couch sleeping, when suddenly his heart stopped beating”.

Farewell our comrade

July 17 2017 - Athens, Greece: Anger and Rage followed the court’s rejection of Irianna’s appeal for her 13 years jail sentence to be suspended on 18 July 2017, an order for imprisonment solely based on an almost non-existent partial DNA sample, that according to the judges proved that she belonged to a radical anarchist group.

A protest called during the night of the same day at Monastiraki where hundreds of people took part, quickly turned into a riot, leading too the destruction of one of the most expensive shopping streets in Europe, namely Ermou St. [video]

[Video] Riot erupts in Athens during Antifa protest for the murder of rapper Pavlos Fyssas by Golden Dawn neonazis

On September 16, 2017 thousands of antifascists in Athens, Greece marched towards the headquarters of the “Golden Dawn” fascist party, four years after the murder of antifascist rapper Pavlos Fyssas by approximately 40 neonazi members of Golden Dawn, on September 18, 2013 in the Keratsini area of Athens.

When the antifascist protest in memory of Pavlos Fyssas reached the Golden Dawn HQ people were faced by dozens of riot policemen protecting the neonazi offices, and a “wall” of riot police buses blocking any access nearby. The protection of the murderers’s offices -that  remain free during their judicial trial that has been going on for almost three years now, contrary to the majority of political prisoners that remain in prison for years until finally their trial takes place- ignited the people’s sentiment and escalated the protest into a riot.

More antifascist protests have been scheduled all over Greece on September 18, 2017, the day when Pavlos Fyssas was murdered by the neonazis exactly 4 years ago to that day.
