Anarchists break into grounds of diplomat’s home

Police detained seven people on Wednesday after suspected members of the anarchist group Rouvikonas entered the grounds of the German ambassador’s home in Halandri, northern Athens, to express solidarity with refugees.

Protesters climbed over the fence surrounding the residence and scattered fliers featuring slogans supporting refugees. They also raised a banner calling for solidarity with refugees and condemning European leaders’ response to the crisis, accusing them of “Orwellian propaganda” for using terms such as “hotspots” and “reception centers.”

The building was attacked by gunmen in December 2013, a hit claimed by Group of Popular Rebels.
