Athens (Greece): Urgent financial appeal by the Resalto Solidarity Fund

“Resalto” is the anarchist space in Western Athens that was raided by police on the evening of December 5th 2009:

The 22 comrades arrested during the brutal break-in of the space were released by the Piraeus Court at the dawn of Tuesday, December, 8th. However, the court imposed strict bail conditions on them all, which included very high amounts of bail money: The total amount of this bail money equals 51,000 euros. More specifically, for one of those arrested bail was set at 15,000 euros, for three of them at 5,000 euros each and for the remaining seven, bail was 3,000 euros.

The total financial amount of bail-money must be deposited by Thursday, December 17th but it is advisable, for the purpose of avoiding bureaucratic deadlocks, that the money is deposited before Tuesday, December 15th.

For this purpose a solidarity fund has been established — for the financial support of the 22 arrested of Resalto, but also for the prompt payment of their bail money. It is very important that we all contribute in gathering this unusually high total amount of bail money.

In order for this amount of money to be securely raised you are all greatly encouraged, and kindly asked to establish direct contact at the following telephone number: +30 6973657960 or via e-mail (tameio22 at espiv dot net) in order to obtain the bank account number where this money may be deposited. Publicly advertising a bank account for fund-raising is illegal under Greek law (for tax purposes).

Solidarity is our weapon.

After The Greek Riots, December 11th, 2009.
