Der Fall des Yiannis K.

Am 11. Mai, dem Tag des Generalstreiks in Griechenland, wurde der Aktivist Yiannis K. bei dem Protestzug in Athen Opfer eines gräulich brutalen Übergriffes der Polizei. Dabei wurde er durch mehrere Schläge auf den Kopf lebensgefährlich verletzt und musste nachträglich, im Zuge der ärztlichen Behandlung, ins künstliche Koma versetzt werden. Wie die Zeitung Athens News heute berichtet, wurden die an der Misshandlung beteiligten Polizisten mittlerweile suspendiert.

Nach einem Bericht von Reuters stürmten gestern Abend rund 150 Anarchisten das Krankenhaus, indem Yiannis liegt, und verprügelten drei anwesende Polizisten, die dadurch leicht verletzt wurden.


Yiannis nach dem Übergriff [via contra-info]

Nach dem Video eines Übergriffes durch die Polizei (wobei es unklar ist, ob es sich hierbei um Yiannis handelt oder einen anderen Demonstranten) folgt die bemerkenswerte Erklärung des lokalen Zweiges der EINAP, der Gewerkschaft der Ärzte von Athen und Piräus, in der Übersetzung von Occupied London. Sie gibt auch Auskunft über den Zustand, in dem sich Yiannis befindet.
Schließlich findet ihr die die Erklärung des Besetzer der Mensa in Propylaea (Panepistimiou Str.) in Athen, die heute morgen von Anarchisten und Anti-Autoritären besetzt wurde. Der Text nimmt Bezug auf die gestrigen Übergriffe und ruft angesichts dessen die massiven Ausschreitungen im Dezember 2008, in Reaktion auf den Mord an Alexandros Grigoropoulos, in Erinnerung. Ebenso beziehen sich die Verfasser auf eine Reihe von Angriffen auf besetzte Häuser im Zentrum Athens, offenbar von Polizisten im organischen Verbund mit Faschisten.

#478 | Announcement of Hospital Doctors Union (Local Branch of Nikaia General Hospital)

This announcement was issuied yesterday while Yiannis K. was having an operation in Nikaia’s General Hospital

Local Branch of EINAP [Union of Hospital Doctors Of Athens and Piraeus] General Hospital of Nikaia
11/05/2011
Today we witnessed the unlimited and profound brutality used by the Greek goverment of the Austerity Memorandum, in its effort to suppress all the healthy reactions of the citizens who resist to the measures planned by the foreign and local capital.
Dozens of injured protesters -beaten up by the riot police- were transfered on ambulance or came by themselves in our hospital. Most of them had head injuries. Among them, there is a 30–year old protestor who was transferred to our hospital in a heavy, antemortem condition, anisocoria and huge epidural hematoma. At the moment the protestor is having an operation by our collegues who are trying to save his life.
We condemn the police brutality. We condemn all the members of the Greek Government and the Prime Minister for the assassination attempt against our fellow citizen, who is in a serious condition and his life is in danger but also against the rest of the protestors.
Violence and repression against the people who resist have no future.
The government through raping the rights of the people, which are necessary for the their survival but also through the brutal violence which directly threaten people’s lives, will increase our stubbornness and our decisiviness to fight until the end in order ofrpeople have bread, education and freedom (cc. ‘Bread-Education-Freedom’ was an anti-dictatorship slogan).

We will not stop until the ones guilty of the murder attempt will be punished.

We will not stop until people win!

First announcement from the occupied Refectory building in Propylaea, Athens

In the May 11th general strike demonstration, thousands of protesters voiced their opposition to the Greek government’s anti-social measures which directly affect workers. While the predatory policy of the ‘Troika’ along with the cooperating Greek government, is pushing even larger sections of society in absolute poverty and destitution, the riot police forces are attacking demonstrators with fury.

In the demonstration of May 11th and while a big part of the demonstrators had passed the parliament and were heading to Propylaea (Panepistimiou Str.), the cops attacked furiously and unprovocably against various blocks of demonstrators (neighborhood assemblies, rank’n‘file labour unions, anarchists/anti-authoritarians, extra-parliamentary left) beating them wildly and firing tons of tear gas. More than 100 demonstrators were transferred to general hospitals (Nikaia, ‘KAT’, ‘Evangelismos’), while three of them underwent surgery.

Comrade Yannis K. has been murderously attacked by the repression forces. Wounded and with a bleeding head, he began to move away from Panepistimiou Street along with another demonstrator. Going down Amerikis Street, at the height of Stadiou Street, they entered into a porch where people who were present saw him bleeding. He was then transferred in antemortem condition (according to the hospital doctors union’s press release) at the General Hospital in Nikaia suffering from an internal head bleeding. He was directly operated and hospitalized in intensive care, in a coma situation.

While this text is being written, the formal mechanisms of manipulation, along with their regimes’ apologists are intensively trying to present the murderous attack as an ‘injury under unclear circumstances’ relieving thereby the principals and instigators (Greek state, repression forces).

The memory of December 08 revolt is turning like an ax over the heads of the rulers, that tremble while facing the possibility of a new social explosion. Alongside, the repression forces in close cooperation with members of extreme-right organizations, have launched a coordinated pogrom against political milieus and squats (Villa Amalias, Patission 61 & Skaramaga squat), attempting thereby to disrupt the ‘enemy within’ by sending messages of terror and fear to anyone who fights back.

Today, May 12th, at 9 o’clock, we occupied the Refectory of University of Athens in Propylaea, in Panepistiniou Str., in the centre of Athens. We have already converted the building and the courtyard in front of it into a counter-information centre and a front of struggle, as an embankment to the States’ invasion and capitalist brutality.
