Failed attack against Greek free radio station


Translator’s intro: Radio Revolt is an unlicensed radio station in Greece which is devoted to counterinformation. It transmits from an occupied retired railway carriage in a university campus in Salonica. The station is well-known amongst the Greek radical youth, as Athens Indymedia has a permanent link to the station’s website: http://radio-revolt.org/

On 21 July 2009 the station was attacked. Here is an adapted English translation of Radio Revolt’s announcement, originally in Greek, prepared independently in solidarity:

During the morning of 21 July the occupied space where Radio Revolt is housed, the railway carriage of OSE (a Greek railway operator) in the centre of Aristotelian University’s campus in Salonica, was attacked by persons unknown with three molotov bombs. After the ‘unknown’ perpetrators attempted to attack our studio, without success, they resorted to bomb with their molotovs the WC of the radio station, and any damage done was limited within it. Our station stopped transmitting only for three hours just to allow for power to be restored, which we had cutted deliberately for safety reasons.

This attack on Radio Revolt is merely one more of the failed attempts by the state and the parastate, part of a semester-long series of attacks after December, ordered by the political and economic elite and executed by cops and fascists. Their goal is to suppress all voices of freedom, everyone who protests and resists. They seek to turn society more conservative, fascist, and xenophobic; their final aim, of course, is the establishment of terror. The police is being advertised as the new messiah, and the dogma of order and security is being presented as more necessary than ever.

Let them live in their dream: day by day the multifaceted resistance becomes more powerful, and thousands of people get their lives in their hands. The dynamic mobilisations and protests prove that all every threat manages to achieve is to make social movements more powerful.

Radio Revolt, against all of them who wish otherwise, transmits – and will carry on transmitting.

Against the mainstream media.

ARM YOUR VOICE!
