Solidarity/Benefit Gig for greek activists- Sunday, 6pm

The day when 15 year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos was shot dead by police without provocation, marked the beginning of a social uprising in Greece. His unlawful killing quickly became a symbol for the peoples disquiet with political corruption and media manipulation and propaganda. Hundreds of thousands of people flooded the streets to protest and actively reclaim a better social, political and economic system that is based on humans' basic rights of freedom and wellbeing and not capital or profit.

Since the 6th of December 2008 and until the 14th of January 2009 there have been 273 arrests*:
67 people already in prison awaiting trials.
19 people arrested in Larisa are being prosecuted under new anti-terrorist laws
