Greece: general strike 28.06.2011 – photos

Translation of accounts from Greek indymedia

A fed up riot cop threw his baton, helmet and shield away, in the middle of the riots today. When his ‘comrades’ realized, they pulled him back and started to “restrain” or “beat” him, according to accounts, before the unit beat a quick retreat to the parliament building.
He yelled “Go fuck all of you, I’m leaving!”, then he dumped his equipment and started moving towards the crowd of protesters. His riot cop ‘comrades’ possibly lifted him into the air, and with pushing and shoving dragged him back, with gear.

Clearly some ‘attack dogs’ are fed up at not being paid ANYTHING, let alone a decent wage, while the wealthy Greek kmasters enjoy lovely London town.

Prisons across Greece         http://en.contrainfo.espiv.net/         Excerpt of a prisoners’ text about the mid-term memorandum — ‘[…] Prisons are a mechanism which is based on poverty and reproduces inequalities and injustice. Prisons are an unjust and inhumane mechanism which demoralizes and enrages people. It is a class and antisocial mechanism which should be abolished. We know that there is no potential for basic living problems’ substantial solution inside prisons because, as we said before, life behind prison walls becomes even more difficult due to the crisis. Hence, the main slogan of inmates in Greek prisons today is “Immediate release of all prisoners.” Today our own struggle cannot but be common. Common among all prisoners, common among all the oppressed of all nationalities who are in the streets and squares of Greek cities. Let’s start here and now a real confrontational struggle that will prevent the mid-term memorandum’s voting. And the only way to do so is to factually threaten the political and economic system’s function. […]’ This text is co-signed by a total of 468 women and men inmates of the prisons: Koridallos (also F male wing), Ioannina, Avlona, Nafplion and Corfu. At least 789 women and men prisoners decided to remain outside the prison cells during the midday closing in: Koridallos (also A, D, F male wings), Diavata, Amfissa, D1 male wing of Grevena. A total of 1,508 inmates will protest via abstention from mess in: Grevena, B male wing of Larissa, Ioannina, Avlona, Malandrino, Diavata and Cassandra in Thessaloniki. On the day of the mid-term memorandum’s voting, the prisoners protest against the financial and political impasse in which the Greek society is situated, against the country’s occupation by the big Capital, against the parliamentary junta. This mobilization is also held in solidarity with those who fight in cities’ streets and squares across Greece.
