Athens: Arson attack on local offices of the Democratic Left (DIMAR) in Kaisariani

In the early hours of Thursday, October 11th, a direct action group carried out an incendiary attack on a local branch of the political party Democratic Left (Dimokratiki Aristera), offices located on Ethnikis Antistaseos street in the neighbourhood of Kaisariani. This party, led by Fotis Kouvelis, is part of the current tripartite coalition government, together with Nea Dimokratia and PASOK.

Here follows an excerpt from the responsibility claim, an expression of solidarity with all those prosecuted for their subversive action:

“The least suited to such lackeys and bootlicking snitches of the system is fire. And to those who already spoke of fascism to describe our act, we say that fascism is the hundreds of ‘preemptive’ detentions of activists and strikers. Fascism is the impoverishment of society as a whole and the pogroms against the ‘leftovers’. Fascism is the tortures against antifascist demonstrators and comrades in solidarity in the Athens police headquarters, the raids on squats, and the unleashed hordes of DELTA and DIAS motorcycle police anthropoids. And any struggle against this fascism of the State and the bosses is RESISTANCE.”
