Today (21-12-2011) on 16.30 in the afternoon, 40 anarchists carried out an action of solidarity for Stella Antoniou, outside the house of minister of Citizen’s Protection (1)Chr. PAPOUTSIS.

They gathered outside the block of flats where Papoutsis lives. They shouted slogans of solidarity for Stella and hundreds of flyers were thrown on the streets that wrote:

IMMEDIATE RELEASE of the ANARCHIST STELLA ANTONIOU /
Chr. PAPOUTSIS, FASCIST of the POLYTECHNIO GENERATION (2)
and
Chr. PAPOUTSIS, from CHAIRMAN of E.F.E.E. (National Union of Greek Students) to CHIEF TORTURER in the GREEK POLICE

Comrades also entered in the front yard of his house where they also threw flyers. The guard who was there, when he saw the comrades, hid in police booth just as the other two of Papoutsis’ personal guard did.
Two cops on motorbikes (DI.AS.) were standing nearby and simply watching the comrades entering the block of flats. The comrades left without any trouble.

Some time afterwards and in a distant street, 4 people were stopped by the police and were taken to the police HQ(3), as it was reported, but that incident was not related.

The actions of solidarity for Stella Antoniou and the other comrades will be continued until they are released.

(2) reference to the Polytechnio revolt in ’73. At the time Papoutsis was president of the students’ union. As many members of PASOK, even today he is cashing in on the struggles of his generation against the military junta.
(3) and released a couple of hours later
(4) Stella Antoniou, Kostas Sakkas, Aleksandros Mitrousias, Giorgos Karagianidis, Christos Politis and Dimitris Michail were arrested on 4/12/10. The last two were released after a few months.
