Ballot-boxes on fire (Thessaloniki, 9/4/2008)
From "Naftemporiki": "A group of around 20 persons wearing helmets, invaded an amphitheater of the veterinary school, a little before the elections start at 8:00, burnt voting papers and ballot boxes and caused minor damages to the elections hall.
Earlier during the night, another group invaded a student elections event, and hanged down election banners and posters."

"This morning at 8:00 am, an intervention against the elections was realised by 30 anarchists at the Veterinary school of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Once we entered the building, we moved towards the hall where the elections would take place, we took the ballot-box in our hands and together with some election material we set them on fire. This action symbolises our total opposition to the logic of the sovereignity and of the mediation-representation reproduced by the elections even within the universities. A condition perpetuous for many years now carrying responsibility for the stupefaction and the apathy of large parts of society. For us, no parties and party leaders suit in our lives and we will always be an enemy to all of them, no matter wich direction they say they lead to.
Fire to the ballot-boxes
Shit to your democracy"
