illusion of social normality in any way.
On our side, we ought to not give even a bit of space to those who

Our solidarity is a given but also factual and we call for a gathering
at KAT hospital on Wednesday September 20th.
NO ONE ALONE IN THE HANDS OF THE STATE
EVERYONE TO THE STREETS
EVERYONE TO THE BARRICADES
Solidarity assembly to K.B.
*next assembly is on September 22nd at 7pm at the Polytechnic in Athens.
