Athens: One more crackdown in Victoria Square

On Tuesday evening, October 4th, at around 20.30 (the day before the general strike mobilizations across Greece) strong police forces raided Victoria Square hunting and arresting dozens of immigrants —residents in the neighbourhood.

Three police buses, police motorcycles, units of the Group of Crime Prevention and Suppression (OPKE) and a bunch of 15–20 plainclothes cops were involved in this repressive operation which lasted about twenty minutes.

The arrestees are probably more than 100 people, including undocumented immigrants.
