Anarchists Target Athens Office of British Charity Oxfam

Members of Greece’s anarchist group Rouvikonas (Rubicon) attacked the offices of the British charity Oxfam in Athens as the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are on a three-day visit to Greece.

According to reports, ten masked people smashed windows and damaged computers before leaving the NGO’s premises on Patission Avenue.

In a post on an anti-establishment website, the group said the vandalism was a response to recent claims the charity’s aid workers were involved in sexual assault against children and a subsequent cover-up of the scandal.

In April, members of Rouvikonas stormed the premises of the British Council in the central suburb of Kolonaki in Athens protesting against the war in Syria.

A member of the group was briefly arrested and charged following the attack.
