These nights are for Alexis: A closer look into the December uprising in Greece
Ljubljana_20.12._spanska1.pngEleven days after the 15-year old boy Alexandros Grogopoulos was killed by a police bullet in Athens, I decide to travel to Greece. The following article is no news, nor is it an analysis of the news. It is an attempt to create more understanding of the inner workings of the uprising, the sociopolitical and cultural climate in which it took place and the movement behind it. It does not attempt to give an objective representation of the uprising instead it is written from a highly subjective perspective and a compilation of interviews I held with people from the anarchist/anti-autoritarian movement in Thessaloniki.

Funeral Procession in Boston Joins National Protests Against Israel's Incursion in Gaza
BWP1100722.pngBoston, Mass.--Around 400 people with home-made coffins marched in downtown Boston in a silent funeral procession to join protests around the world against Israel's military aggression in Gaza. Thousands marched in major cities in Europe, Arab countries, and the United States to express their outrage for the killings of so far 821 Palestinians, including 235 children, and close to 3700 wounded (50% of them women and children). Thirteen Israelis have died in the offensive, ten of them soldiers.

“Palestinian people must be some of the most extraordinary human beings in the world to continue to survive and raise families and talk about peace under the conditions they are living in,” said Catherine Hoffman from the Cambridge-Bethlehem People-to-People Project. “People who see Israel as the victim here, can see the power, absolute power that Israel wields in Palestine, not just now in terms of the killing, but everyday in terms of the occupation.”

Bostonians Arrested Demanding End to US-Funded Israeli War Crimes in Gaza
DSC_7161.pngBOSTON – A diverse group of 30 Palestinian-Americans, Jewish Americans and supporters dramatized the US funded Israeli war crimes in Gaza with a "die-in" at the Israeli Consulate at 20 Park Plaza in Boston, MA. Demonstrators carried poster-sized images of the recent carnage in Gaza and read some of the names of the over 700 Palestinian dead as a result of US-funded Israeli aggression. Susan Barney, Rick Colbath-Hess, Ridgely Fuller, and Patrick Keaney, were arrested when they refused to leave the lobby of the consulate building, until Israel agreed to an immediate and unconditional ceasefire and to end its 18-month blockade on Gaza, which has prevented Palestinians from having food, medicine and electricity.

Gaza Rally Outside Israeli Consulate
crowd.pngOn the fourth day of Israel’s bombing campaign in Gaza, hundreds of Bostonians turned out to a rally to demonstrate their solidarity with the Palestinian people. The rally, which was organized by a coalition of pro-Palestinian groups, took place in front of the office building that houses the Israeli Consulate’s office in Boston’s Back Bay. The spirited rally was followed by a boisterous march from the Israeli Consulate to Copley Square, where preparations for Boston’s First Night were underway.
