Villa Amalias statement regarding today’s re-occupation and re-eviction
Today at 9.20 am, and following the reoccupation of Villa Amalias by dozens of comrades, the building was invaded by riot police and anti-terrorist police units without the presence of an attorney, to remove the comrades and evacuate the building. The 101 comrades, despite the difficult position in which they have been placed by the state, organised collectively and exited the occupation in formation, not loaded with weapons as many media parrots would imagine, but with their fists raised and their voices echoing: ‘the right is with the insurgents and not with the ruffians and the subservient’.
As Villa Amalias was being evacuated, the cops, after an order by DIMAR (centre-left party participating in the governmental coalition), proceeded to remove and arrest 40 comrades from the symbolic occupation that took place at the offices of DIMAR, in support to the reoccupation and evacuation of Villa Amalias.
The state now progresses even more clearly, for those who have not yet understood it, to the implementation of the doctrine of zero tolerance to anyone who fights and resists, anyone against the fait accompli imposed by those with power and money. To all from below, to all society. To all of us whose lives are more than just another number, just another stone to their fallacious social formation.
SOLIDARITY TO THE ARRESTED COMRADES
FROM VILLA AMALIAS & DIMAR
VILLA AMALIAS WILL REMAIN AN OCCUPATION
