Extensive police operation in Thessaloniki against anarchist spaces; at least 34 detentions so far

From the Greek Streets:

This morning (July 2nd) saw an extremely extensive police operation in the city of Thessaloniki, targeting the local anarchist scene. As of 13:00 GMT+2, the information we’ve got is the following:

  • Police stormed the anarchist occupation Nadir at approximately 6.30 AM, detaining people inside.
  • They then also stormed the anarchist residential squat Orfanotrofeio, also detaining people there.
  • Meanwhile, police were raiding anarchist’s houses, detaining at least 6 people in their homes.

Media report that the extended operation follows a police case file concerning events of recent months in the city (what events, it is unspecified…)

At 13:15, alterthes was reporting “34 detentions, of which 25 will be converted into arrests” – i.e. those 25 people will face charges.

More info as it comes.
