Athens (Greece): Occupied gym evicted and demolished

On Tuesday morning [July 17th, 2018] a bulldozer (with agreement of the owner of course) demolished squat in Exarchia, Athens, which was acting as the only occupied gym in the city. No one was arrested. Workers worked on the building while riot police was on alert and protecting the area.

The squat was occupied last December, while the abandoned building was empty for last 10 years. Comrades organized in squat classes mainly in martial arts (box, Muay Thai, taekwondo) but also Latin dance and yoga. The squat acted also as a space for political debates especially on prison system, and showed a meaningful support for prisoners.
