The Common Week of Actions, planned to take place from 6th to 13th of February, was concluded in Athens with a demonstation in solidarity to the resistance and self-organisation of the kurdish territories and against the military operations of the security forces. More than 400 anarchists/libertarians participated in the demo, which started from Monastiraki, went through Omonia square and in the crosssection of Patision and Stadiou streets came upon a wall of riot police squads.
Finally it was made feasible for the demo to conitnue on the Stadiou street and reach the Propulaia square.
The police forces did not permit the march to reach Syntagma square, where it was planned to join the march of Kurdish and Turkish activists, that were coming from Agia Paraskevi. That march was cut off as well from the police but made it to Syntagma square from alternative roads. After the end of the demo, larger or smaller groups of comrades did make it to Syntagma and met the Kurdish and Turkish activists. All of them marched together towards the Turkish embassy. A few blocks from the embassy, on the crosssection of Vasilisis Sofias and Rigilis streets, this march was also intercepted by riot police forces.
Groups and initiatives from nine cities of Greece participated in the Common Week of Actions, organizing demonstations, interventions and other forms of actions. This week made evident the interest and the disposal for practical internationalistic solidarity by a big part of the anarchists/libertarians all over Greece. It is of great importance that the Common Week of Actions was embraced by many comrades, who each of them contributed in their own way.
The anarchist internationalistic solidarity can shape a strong web of cooperation between persons that resist and fight, between those sections of the people that insurrect against every repressive institution in the Mediterrenean area.
Struggle for land and freedom !
