Explosive Attack on Italian-Greek Chamber of Commerce in Thessaloniki

Anarchists attacked the Italian-Greek Chamber of Commerce in Thessaloniki, Greece with an explosive device in solidarity with comrades resisting repression in Turin, Italy.

International revolutionaries have taken actions in solidarity with the six arrested in the aftermath of the eviction of El Asilo, a revolutionary anarchist center in Turin.

The comrades’ communique is below in full:


On Saturday February 9th, we attacked the Italian-Greek Chamber of Commerce in Thessaloniki, leaving an explosive device in front of the main entrance; this action was concealed by the media.

This attack is a response to the repression carried out by the Italian State, the latest example being the eviction of Asilo Occupato in Turin.

In the early hours of Thursday 7th February the squat was evicted and that same morning six comrades were arrested and accused of subversive association. The squat had existed for 24 years and was a point of reference for constant actions against detention centres for migrants, against evictions of social housing and the gentrification of the neighbourhood.

This repressive blow came after a period of persecutions that have been striking anarchists in Turin in recent years with arrests, compulsory residence orders and much more.

This attack is a signal of solidarity with the comrades carrying on the struggle in Turin. It is also a signal of solidarity with Spyros Christodoulou, who has been on hunger strike since 14th January. Keep strong Spyros.

FOR A WORLD WITHOUT PRISONS, SOLIDARITY WITH ASILO OCCUPATO

FREEDOM FOR THE 6 ARRESTED

FREEDOM FOR CESARE BATTISTI, DEATH TO THE STATE
