Update 14:40 (local time): According to the media the 6 arrestees are charged with 4 felonies (participation in terrorist organization, attempted homicides in common, supplying, manufacturing and possessing incendiary materials/bombs in common, explosion in common and attempt to provoke explosion) and 4 misdemeanors (distinct damage due to explosion, illegal possession and use of guns) related to the organization “Revolutionary Struggle”, on actions dating back to 2003.(13:50 local time): At 13:00 local time, the cops tear-gased and beat up comrades that had gathered in solidarity. 2 people were detained for alleged resistance and insulting the authorities after the clash, and were taken to the local police station in Kipseli. More riot police units have been moved on site.The 6 arrestees were taken to Evelpidon (Athens courts) at 10:30 am (local time) in order to appear before the prosecutor. Their transfer resembled a Hollywood setting: streets nearby were blocked, 6 jeeps of the intelligence service along with several motorcycles and undercover police vehicles paraded, while cameramen were filming all along.Approximately 150 people have gathered in solidarity outside chanting slogans. Strong anti-media sentiment due to the infuriating stand the media have taken by publishing photos, names and filming the interior of houses raided yesterday. The place is packed with cops, and there was tension when the 6 arrived. The procedure is estimated to last until late tonight, and our presence there in solidarity is extremely important.
