The 15 years old Alexis Grigoropoulos has been killed on saturday night by a cop in the 'alternative' zone of Exarchia in Athens. Many witnesses confirm that it was a cold blood murder, not an accidental killing during a fighting between a police patrol and a group of young anarchists as said by (police) ufficial sources. Since then Athens and other Greek towns are burning: thousands of protesters face police and show their anger destroying cars, super-markets, banks and luxury shops.
It isn't a novelty: the Greek police is particularly violent, expecially against young, 'alternative' people, drugs users and drop-outs in general and many talk about torture (and even homicides) against immigrants in police stations. Evidently this time the 'bottom of the bucket' broke down. We hope there will be justice for Alexis and the thugs in uniform will pay.
Rest in Peace Alexis, this is for you. A better world's possible
