Athens: Cops detained comrades during solidarity action with Athens IMC and 98FM radio station
In the morning of April 24th, as part of solidarity actions with counter-information media that were recently gagged by the Greek State with the aid of the rector of the National Technical University of Athens, Simos Simopoulos, a large banner was placed at Propylaea on Panepistimiou street in downtown Athens, that reads: “Raise your voice – Fight against state censorship – Athens.indymedia.org & Radio98fm.org” while a red and black flag was raised on the building, replacing their Greek national flag.
A couple of hours later MAT anti-riot squadrons and motorcycle cops encircled the building. More than 30 comrades who participated in the solidarity intervention were detained by the police and transferred to the police headquarters, on Alexandras avenue.
There is a call for solidarity gathering outside the police headquarters. More info as it comes.
