The Greek rioting police blatantly tried to hide the fact that they tortured four arrested anarchists with ridiculously bad photoshopped photos:


Regarding Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, one of the four arrested and tortured anarchists in Kozani via indymedia:

After contacting the parents of Bourzoukos Andreas-Dimitris, we wanted to inform you about the following:

All the detainees have been moved to the General Police Headquarters of Attica since Saturday February 2nd (very late in the evening).

In the morning the parents managed to get in contact with their children, as did their lawyers. Until then, the police denied all their requests.

They were given only 15 minutes at the 12th floor of the General Police Headquarters of Attica.

Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos was handcuffed to the chair during the whole time.

He informed us that in the cells where he was detained in Kozani he was handcuffed with his hands behind his waist. They placed a hood on his face, made him kneel and beat him for four hours on his head, his face and his stomach, and his hair was pulled out by force. This happened without any resistance from his part. They also threatened him and insulted him in a vulgar way. The consequences of these tortures were the following: blood in the urine, severe dizziness, headaches, swellings on his whole face, contusions on both eyes, bruises and ecchymoses everywhere.

His parents report that his face was non-recognizable and his voice altered from all the beatings at his jaw.

During the last three days he has only drunk bottled water, while his parents were not allowed to give him packaged food and juices.

All the above are not published in order to victimize the detainees, but in order to publicize the tortures and the “legal” violence of the state apparatus.

Despite everything, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos is strong, has kept his dignity and his morale is not shaken.

Power to the detainees.

  1. In the above article, the word “anarchist” is used. Is this accurate? Or would activist or protester be more appropriate?
