Rouvikonas smashes entrance of Attica Regional Authority


Anti-establishment group Rouvikonas on Monday confirmed it had carried out an attack on the headquarters of the Attica Regional Authority in protest at the flash floods earlier this month in Mandra, western Attica, which claimed 21 lives.

Members of the group, which has carried out dozens of similar attacks on state agencies and other perceived targets, smashed the Syngrou Avenue building’s entrance with sledgehammers and threw paint on the facade before running off.

The attack occurred in the early hours of the morning.

Later, in a post on an anarchist website, the group claimed responsibility for the attack, saying that it was meant to protest the state apparatus’s failure to protect the lives of the residents of Mandra.
