Guer­rilla group claims hit

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The far-left guer­rilla or­ga­ni­za­tion Group of Pop­u­lar Fight­ers has claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for a bomb at­tack last month on the premises of Skai broad­caster and Kathimerini, which caused no in­juries but wreaked wide­spread dam­age. In a procla­ma­tion posted on an anti­estab­lish­ment web­site on Tues­day night, the group said the bomb was a protest at what it de­scribed as the “cap­i­tal­ist” agenda of Greek pri­vate me­dia or­ga­ni­za­tions. It also ac­cused the me­dia of con­tribut­ing to­wards pre­serv­ing “a rot­ten eco­nomic and po­lit­i­cal sys­tem” and de­scribed me­dia or­ga­ni­za­tions as an “in­cu­ba­tor for the re­pro­duc­tion of a dom­i­nant far­right, xeno­pho­bic and neo-lib­eral nar­ra­tive, and as such are rightly the re­cip­i­ents of so­cial counter-vi­o­lence.” The bomb­ing of the head­quar­ters of Skai and Kathimerini was con­demned by po­lit­i­cal par­ties across the spec­trum as “an at­tack on democ­racy.”
