Rouvikonas Will be Addressed… When?

May 17, 2019

Rouvikonas, this self-styled anarchist collective which operates almost freely and causes damage to various “targets” in Athens, this week hurled paint on the wall of the U.S. Ambassador’s residence.

The damage may have been small, but the symbolic meaning of the attack is quite large. Bringing to mind, other memories…

Ambassador Jeffrey Pyatt issued a placid statement – “[I] will continue to work with Greek authorities to punish the culprits according to law. Destruction of property is not peaceful protest” – and described the act as “childish vandalism.”

He’s right.

It is, however, imperative that after this incident security at the Ambassador’s home will be further enhanced.

I unite, of course, my voice with the voices of so many others who unconditionally condemned this act.

Such organizations and such attacks, especially against a home, have no place in a European capital.

But the government continues to play games with the Rouvikonas.

As a result, the country continues to earn rebukes.
