Rouvikonas Anarchists Attack Again, Plan Website Launch

October 9, 2019

ATHENS – Proving to be as unstoppable for New Democracy as they were for the former ruling Radical Left SYRIZA – criticized for condoning them – the notorious anarchist group Rouvikonas ran into the Labor Ministry on Oct. 9 and scattered fliers with police detaining six.

They were protesting changes to labor laws passed by the new Conservative government that makes it easier for companies to fire workers without giving notification. Previously, members who had been caught in their frequent assaults were not prosecuted.

While that was going on, the group said it would launch an official website without any report on whether the Greek police who probe the wrongful use of cyber space would be tracking them to find the IP address and their location.

The group has been responsible for dozens of attacks on a range of targets, including embassies, political offices and government ministries but has been taken down a bit by the new government which has sent squadrons of riot police into the Exarchia neighborhood dominated by anti-establishment groups to root out drug dealers, criminals, and squatters and fight lawlessness and violence.
