Today in Athens, street battles broke out between police and protesters, as marches approached the Greek Parliament building. Numerous cars and buildings were set on fire, including a branch of Marfin Bank, where three employees were killed by smoke inhalation.

Greek authorities were quick to blame protesters for the deaths, but as Libcom.org (http://libcom.org) points out, n a similar case thirty years ago the fire turned out to have been started by a tear gas canister fired by police.

An anonymous employee of Marfin Bank released the following statement, with the request to disseminate it widely to counteract government propaganda.

Greece's Trial of the Century
On January 22nd, in the remote mountain town of Amfissa, Greece, the trial began of Athens police officers Epaminondas Korkoneas and Vassilis Saraliotis. Korkoneas murdered 15 year old anti-authoritarian Alexandros Grigoropoulos on December 6th, 2008, and Saraliotis is being tried as an accomplice for encouraging the killing. The shooting sparked more than a month of full-blown insurrection, and though it occurred in central Athens, authorities postponed the trial from December 2009 to January 20th, 2010, and moved it 125 miles northwest from the Greek capital in hopes of avoiding more civil unrest.
