Yesterday 12/5/2010 twenty people gathered in a solidarity action at the greek embassy in warsaw poland. The put up banners and took down the greek and european flag replacing them with black ones. six greek and one polish student were arrested. They have been in warsaw police station since then. Noone can communicate with them. A lawyer of the black cross has gone there aswell.
In poland its illegal to have a protest with more than 15 people.
We dont know if they will keep them for 24 or 48 hours. They have given them no food or water. The cops want to press serious charges. None of the people arrested had anything to do with the flag action. They are going to charge them with stealing the flag [which does not exist] and for “participating in an illegal gathering with intent to commt a crime”.
FREEDOM TO THE COMRADES
SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON
