Urgent solidarity with comrades arrested for attack on Greek embassy in Argentina!
April 28, 2010
During the afternoon of Tuesday, April 27, 2010, comrades decided to attack the Greek embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina as a show of solidarity with anarchist comrade Giannis Dimitrakis, who is facing the final appeal of his 35-year prison sentence for a 2006 bank robbery.
The building was being attacked with Molotov cocktails, paint, streamers, and sticks when gun-toting civil police guarding the embassy—already warned of possible attacks—began a clash with our comrades.
The confrontation left two police officers injured, while five comrades were arrested, among them a woman with serious injuries to her head.
The charges against our comrades are still unknown, but we stand firmly in solidarity with those who have decided to show that the fight against power knows no borders, nations, or languages; those who have realized that the best possible translation into language, from one end of the world to the other, is: Attack the exploiters.
Our comrades are now in the enemy’s clutches because they showed solidarity with a brother in Greece. The blood drawn by the routine brutality of the security forces can only be understood as an urgent call to strengthen internationalist links with the compas spreading insurrection, and to replicate their acts.
On Wednesday, April 29, our comrades will appear in Comodoro Federal Court, and a call has gone out to attend and demand their prompt release.
We will be paying attention to what happens on the other side of the mountains during this time of repression for the revolt there.
With boundless affection for those who decide to advance from words to deeds.
LET’S LEAVE NO ROOM FOR INDIFFERENCE!
SOLIDARITY WITH THE COMRADES ABDUCTED BY THE ARGENTINE STATE!
