Rouvikonas Anarchist Group Hits Greek Newspapers Offices

January 17, 2020

ATHENS – The Rouvikonas gang of anarchists targeted by the New Democracy government are keeping up the fight, this time claiming responsibility for attacks against the offices in Athens of the Dimokratia and Espresso newspapers.

Media reports said a group of 10 to 15 hooded people roared into the building where the offices of both newspapers are located, climbed up to the third floor, threw paint, shouted slogans and smashed computers and other equipment before leaving.

In a statement posted on an anti-establishment website, Rouvikonas claimed responsibility saying the newspapers “should be careful what they write about,” without explaining what that meant and why it was upset either.

It had previously gone after a range of other targets, including embassies, political party offices, banks, the Parliament, Defense Ministry, doctors and has been in a running battle with the government that is trying to root them out of the neighborhood of Exarchia.
