The occupied Keratsini Town Hall in Athens has been raided; “around thirty people arrested” there
Saturday, December 5, 2009

22:57 GMT+2 The Town Hall of Keratsini, occupied in response to the earlier police raid of the anarchist space “Resalto” in the neighbourhood, was also raided moments ago. The reports we have from people there are that around thirty people (everyone in the building at the time, this is info we’ve had from the phone) have been arrested. More info as it comes.

Keratsini Town Hall in Athens is occupied following the raid of local anarchist space; police raid in the town hall seems imminent
Saturday, December 5, 2009

The town hall of Keratsini in Western Athens has been occupied following, and in response to the police raid of the local anarchist space Resalto. It seems possible that a police raid in the town hall, too, is imminent. Meanwhile in Exarcheia, people have been scarce under some heavy rain. A few hundred demonstrators are now in the Polytechnic with riot police literally on every single street corner in the close vicinity.

Corporate media report that at least 93 people have been detained by police so far; at least 12 arrests. Athens IMC seems to be having trouble to respond to the traffic demand. Will try and post as frequent updates as possible here.

#137 | Thirteen people have been arrested at anarchist space in Athens; open assembly at the Polytechnic, 7pm tonight
Saturday, December 5, 2009

19.18 Cops just stormed Exarcheia square, detaining about 20 people, without anything having happened before. There are also riot cops ready to kick off on the corner of Messologiou and Metaxa Street, literally a few meters away from the point of Alexis’ assassination. Polytechnic assembly is starting soon.

Riot police have stormed the anarchist space Resalto in Western Athens. They smashed the building’s glass facade and arrested thirteen people, driving them all to the Police Headquarters in Alexandras Avenue.

For all the internationals who have made their way to Athens:

1) Welcome!

2) Never, ever wander around the city without ID. If they stop you, police can, and will, detain you and drive you to their HQ to confirm your identity.

3) If things go wrong: The legal defense group can be reached on these numbers: 6972-718536 

4) An open assembly is starting at the Polytechnic at 7pm tonight. Come there to get more information about what will be happening in the next few days.

Some of our international friends who are already in Athens have put together the following list of “do’s and dont’s”:

do not:
have any patches on clothing or bags (political or band)
carry any form of political agit prop, including stickers on wallets or antifascist donor cards
don’t keep clothes in zip lock bags till you have to
go of the beaten track in any area that is regarded as “political” unless you mean to and know exactly where you’re going.

DRESS LIKE A TOURIST: anarcho-chic is not going to make you any friends
have your passport on you if you’re just out for a walk in town, you can get in to more trouble without it.
