• Second communiqué of comrades from Villa Amalias squat, here
• Short reportback from a spontaneous solidarity demo last night (20.12) in downtown Athens, which took place just after the anarchist assembly at the Athens University of Economics and Business (ASOEE), here
• “Early in the morning (21.12) cops broke in the door of Villa Amalias on Heyden street without the presence of any of its occupants. Typically this means cops barged into the house without a warrant and are still violating the premises. We are warning the authorities that any damage or operation in the occupied space will be answered immediately. Let us also remind that no one is entitled to be inside the building in our absence.” —Villa Amalias
• The arrestees (six Greek-born and two German-born) are still held captive. Today, 21.12, they underwent a preliminary proceeding. The eight comrades arrived at the Athens courts under heavy police presence at about 13.45pm. Dozens of solidarians were gathered at the Evelpidon courthouse and greeted them with loud chants and solidarity slogans. For approximately two hours, the eight arrestees were examined by the public prosecutor, who proposed that they should be charged with the felony of manufacturing explosive materials plus some misdemeanors. Thus, the accused were obliged to appear before an examining magistrate who would decide upon the indictment. At 16.00pm it was reported that the eight comrades requested more time to prepare for their defense. The next hearing was scheduled for Monday, 24.12.2012 (aka Christmas Eve). Until then, they will remain incarcerated in the police headquarters on Alexandras avenue.
