Group claims responsibility over attacks on Athens banks, ND offices


A group calling itself “Comrades for the Diffusion of Exachia” has claimed responsibility for a barrage of attacks on banks and on offices belonging to the ruling New Democracy party in different parts of Athens on Monday.

In a statement posted on an anti-establishment website on Wednesday, the group said that Exarchia, a downtown Athens district which has been the target of police sweeps aimed at tackling rampant lawlessness in the area, “is a symbol of everything that power wants to repress.”
