ATHENS – The party riddled with terrorist and anarchist sympathizers, one of the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA’ Members of Parliament said the rampaging anti-establishment group Rouvikonas, which has hit a number of targets with sometimes violent assaults, is really just a political group, indicating he is in sympatico with them.
Giorgos Kyritsis told Skai TV after members of the group threw paint at the French Embassy to protest France joining air strikes against Syria in retaliation for chemical weapons strikes on civilians that the act was “a classic case of activism” and blameless.
In keeping with the reign of SYRIZA, he took both sides, also saying that while he implicitly supported the attack that Greece must “pursue good relations with France,” without explaining why throwing paint would help that.
Violent crime in Greece’s capital has soared under SYRIZA, with many of its members even supporting the release from jail of terrorists, anarchists, murderers and assassins and as the major rival New Democracy said the government is condoning and even encouraging more because it’s trying to re-establish Leftist credentials after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras surrendered to international lenders and imposed more austerity.
Paint balls were also tossed at the Turkish Embassy by Rouvikonas members who have even managed to get onto the grounds of the Parliament and Defense Ministry and barged into offices of notaries helping with foreclosures and a doctor accused of demanding bribes in return for performing surgery.
