Rouvikonas Anarchists Parade Outside Israeli Ambassador’s Athens Home

March 30, 2018

ATHENS – After throwing paint at the Israeli Embassy in the Greek Capital on Christmas Day, members of the notorious anarchist group Rouvikonas on March 30 uploaded a video showing their assault on the Ambassador’s home, where they threw flyers and shouted slogans in favor of the Palestinians the day before.

The attack took place in the well-to-do neighborhood of Psychiko in northern Athens and the video showed about 20 people were involved in the latest assault by Rouvikonas, which has been on a rampage against a series of targets for months.

The guard on duty at the entrance of the house of Ambassador, Irit Ben-Abba, reportedly did not react when the Rouvikonas members appeared there, said Kathimerini.

Rouvikonas has conducted dozens of acts of vandalism against as state offices, financial agencies, embassies, media and other businesses.

Rouvikonas has continually embarrassed the government, earlier getting onto grounds of the Parliament, Defense Ministry and embassies, including the assault on the Israeli Embassy.

In a statement posted on an anti-establishment website later, Rouvikonas described their January assault on the Finance Ministry, calling it the “lair of the plutocrat minister… the place where incomes, pensions and people’s lives are slaughtered,” referring to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ Radical Left SYRIZA breaking anti-austerity vows.

Rouvikonas said it would step up its targets and now go hard after Greek notaries for conducting property foreclosures. “Wherever they are, whoever they are, we will find them,” another warning after breaking into one notary’s office and vandalizing it.
