Anti-establishment protesters occupy Athens Law School, seek N17 convict release

A group of between 100 and 150 members of anti-establishment groups on Friday staged a sitin at the main faculty of the Athens Law School, demanding the release of Savvas Xeros, a convicted member of November 17, and of relatives of jailed members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire guerrilla group.

In a document posted on the Internet, the protesters demanded the release of Xeros who has serious health problems and protested the use of “Type C” maximum security cells at the Domokos Prison in central Greece.

In a separate sitin, anti-establishment protesters took over the headquarters of leftist Syriza at the Cretan port of Hania. The occupation followed a similar sitin by anarchists at Syriza’s main headquarters in Athens last week which was held for the same reasons.
