Syntagma square tent occupation evicted by police in the early hours of Saturday

At approximately 4.15 a.m. on Saturday, 30.7, heavy riot police forces entered Syntagma square, destroying and removing the tents that where set up there. At least eight people were arrested. This follows the order by attorney general Eleni Raikou for the tents at Syntagma and the “promise” of mayor Kaminis that the tents at Syntagma would be removed within days, as they tarnish Athens’ image during the tourist period.

A gathering has been called for tonight at 6pm and today’s general assembly will take place at 9pm, as normal.
