Anniversary of Rage

Athens, December 6th: When the joint student/teacher demonstration gathered at 11 a.m., the police had already closed roads and deployed several thousand officers around the city. The first two banners read: "Pupils and workers against the IMF memorandum - Money for schools, not for banks - Resistance Coordination of the Pupils' Initiatives" - "Our dreams are bullet-proof (alexisphaira) - Sixth class". In the Greek capital, this rallye was today only one of several protest marches and gatherings in memory of the shooting of Alexandros Grigoropoulos. In 17 Greek cities people took to the streets to commemorate the second anniversary of his murder, and there were also a lot of memorial gatherings or solidarity actions in other countries (for example in London /2/, Newcastle, Berlin, Hamburg, Weimar or Munich, see Contra Info roundup).
