Rouvikonas throws flyers outside Hungarian embassy

Police detained 13 members of the anti-establishment Rouvikonas group on Monday after they threw fliers outside the Embassy of Hungary on Vassileos Constantinou Avenue in central Athens. The incident occurred shortly before 4 p.m.

Police had detained two Rouvikonas members earlier in the day and are looking for another 10 after the group targeted the building housing the municipal authorities of Alimos, southern Athens, smashing windows and splashing red paint on its facade to protest the death of a municipal garbage collector on November 16.

In a message posted on an anti-establishment website, the group said its act was “the first world day of action,” noting that other anarchist groups in 15 countries were staging similar protests in more than 60 cities.
