Repression in Athens continues after mass protest

(UPDATE 4-27-2013) Athens Indymedia set themselves up in the office of The Rector they so despise, and connected to the internet long enough to announce and organize the mass protest of Thursday, April 25. Late Friday, the world searched for the beacon of athens.indymedia.org and found none - but today they're back on line again, may the gods continue to cooperate.

For now we go to the translation site for footage of the protest. Be also reminded to check http://indymedia.squat.gr

Footage from the anti-repression demo on April 25th in downtown Athens, in solidarity with Athens IMC and 98FM radio station

 

A few slogans chanted during the protest march:

‘From Athens to Mexico, create thousands of indymedia sites so that repressors get wiser’

‘Indymedia is a voice from the streets; not one step back in the face of repression’

‘Pirate radios and self-organized spaces inside faculties; the academic asylum belongs to fighters’

‘This is how you do it right: take down the Greek flag and raise a protest banner’ (reference to the 24/4 action at Propylaea)

‘Cybersecurity is not feasible; proletarians/trolletarians have no IP’

‘10, 100, 1000 indymedia sites against a world filled with rotten media’
