Athens, Greece: Arson attack against a Porsche dealership in Glyfada
An unknown anarchist group has claimed responsibility for an arson attack against a Porsche dealership in the upmarket Athens suburb of Glyfada on July 27, 2015. The blaze caused serious damage to many cars and to the dealership building itself. It took 21 firefighters to extinguish the blaze. The communique claiming responsibility for the attack was posted on Athens Indymedia website. Here are some translated excerpts from the communique:
"So this time on Monday morning, July 26 we chose to attack the dealership of luxurious Porsche cars in the Glyfada area on Vouliagmeni avenue. We set fire to all the vehicles in the outer courtyard of the dealership and, to our great joy, due to explosions from the fuel tanks of the cars major damage was caused to the interior of the building."
"Glyfada is an eminently bourgeois area, a sterile area, where the surveillance of the privileged bourgeoisie is synonymous with safety. A residential area that offers 'high quality of life' where the bastards who exploit us flaunt their wealth, which is of course our own blood in every way."
"We must clarify that the choice of target was not because we focus on the fact that it is a company of German interest. It was because of the luxury that comes because of the 'specifity' of the present location. It is a prime symbol - a totem displaying the wealth and prosperity enjoyed by the bourgeoisie."
"HAIL TO THE GLASS BANNERS OF DEAD IDEOLOGY!
FIRE AND MORE TO ALL THAT SYMBOLIZES THE VICTORY OF CAPITALISM!
CLASS AGAINST CLASS UNTIL THE END OF THIS WORLD!
REVOLUTION FIRST AND ALWAYS!"
