On August 5th cops in Greece continued their campaign of repression against squats by raiding three squatted spaces in Patras: Parartima, Maragopouleio and the Self-managed Hangout inside the Technological Educational Institute (TEI). 16 comrades were detained in total; 5 squatters and 11 supporters.
While those showing solidarity were later released, the 5 occupants faced charges in court on the 13th. Therefore the next day we painted a banner to express our solidarity with squatters facing charges and evicted from their homes.
Additionally today we hung another banner to show solidarity with the squat Rigaer 94 and all those arrested during raids in Berlin on the 14th. The raids were supposedly related to arson attacks of various job centres and a Molotov attack against police, in solidarity with the revolts in Turkey after the eviction of Gezi Park in Istanbul.
We name ourselves ACAB because we are antagonists. We also name ourselves ACAB because we know that all cops are bastards who go to any lengths to attack the squatting movement internationally and the anarchist milieu.
The banners are now hanging from Canton police station that we appropriated for our own use in Cardiff. We squat here to show that not everyone is afraid, that some of us are bored of living in fear, and instead desire to fight back.
Solidarity with squatters facing charges!
Solidarity with squats under attack in Greece!
Solidarity with everyone evicted from their homes!

From Act For Freedom Now:
“At 5:00pm the 12th of June there was a banner drop and hundreds of flyers were thrown from a multi-storey car park in the centre of Cardiff, as part of the international day of soliarity for the nine imprisoned Anarchists in Turkey.
The banner read: “Free the Anarchist May-Day Prisoners In Turkey”.
Two weeks later, the homes of activists were simultaneously raided and sixty people were arrested in connection with these actions.
Nine of these people remain detained in prison. We demand the immediate release of those nine anarchist comrades in prison.
Solidarity with anarchists in Turkey.”
The flyers were blown throughout the city and many people picked them up out of interest. The banner remained on the car park the entire night, but was taken down at some point the next morning.
Fire to the banks and prisons!”
