Newsline: Anarchists throw paint at Turkey’s Embassy in Athens

A small group of anarchists threw paint on the walls of Turkey’s Embassy in Athens Tuesday. About 10 people from the self-proclaimed anarchist group Ruvikonas marched towards the embassy on Tuesday morning, chanting and throwing leaflets in the air entitled: “Strength and solidarity towards the fighting Turkish people.” They then threw balloons filled with red and black paint against the exterior walls of the embassy. A web statement by the group said it stands in solidarity with the Turkish people. It said they are against the July 15 coup but also against the Turkish government. No one was hurt, and Greek police made no arrests regarding the incident, since the group quickly fled towards the suburbs.
