Canadian Embassy in Athens Attacked by ‘Rubicon’ Anarchists Group with Sledgehammers and Paint



According to Ekathimerini Newspaper, early on Sunday morning, the Canadian Embassy in the northern Athenian suburb of Halandri was attacked by a group of around 10 people.

Soon after the attack, the ‘Rubicon’ Anarchists group took credit for it, making the announcement on their website.

The group reportedly used sledgehammers to smash glass at the embassy’s entrance and then splattered red and black paint onto the building.

The attacks happened at the early hour of 6:10 a.m. and the security guard on the premises informed the police.

The CCTV footage showed that the group of assailants had their faces covered and that they had parked their motorbikes at a supermarket around 150 meters from the embassy. Police did question one man who was in the vicinity of the attack, but he was released.
