Anarchist Group Invade Greek Foreign Ministry Protesting over Palestinian Issue

Members of anarchist group Rubicon on Tuesday invaded the foreign ministry building in Athens and left a bag with the flag of Palestine inside, protesting Greece’s cooperation with Israel.

The foreign ministry building is located across the entrance of the Greek Parliament in central Athens. The perpetrators jumped the fence and placed the bag that contained the Palestinian flag and pictures of dead Palestinians who were killed by Israeli soldiers.

The anarchists recorded the invasion on video which they later posted on anarchist websites. The footage shows Rubicon members jumping the fence and entering the courtyard of the building where they left the bag.

As stated in their post, the action was in protest “of the genocide of a people” and “on the occasion of the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by another long-time strategic ally of the Greek state, the U.S.”.
