ATHENS – The notorious Rouvikonas anarchist group that has conducted scores of assaults on a number of targets, sometimes violent, opened a stall at the Athens School of Philosophy in an apparent attempt to recruit student members and discuss the gang’s aims.
The group’s presence was not welcomed by the head of the faculty, Eleni Karamolengou, apparently unhappy they wanted to discuss their philosophy at the school of philosophy.
“We are here to stay,” said members of Rouvikonas, which has splashed paint on foreign embassies, tossed leaflets inside the grounds of the Defense Ministry and other ministries, smashed windows and even gone after the offices of the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras whose party ironically is full of anarchist and terrorist sympathizers.
Rouvikonas is upset that Tsipras reneged on anti-austerity promises and surrendered to Capitalist lenders, NATO and the United States, political enemies of the group and allegedly as well of SYRIZA before the Premier conceded to them.
“We are tremendously amused by the reactions of Mrs. Karamolengou and of the media,” the group said in a website post, adding that Rouvikonas plans to “guard its stall with its presence,” a warning they should not be trifled with.
Rouvikonas dismissed criticism, saying that its stall is just one of several at the school and that others also have a presence on university grounds trying to recruit students to their causes.
