Centauro Social Center demolished. The repression of the various occupied social centers that was begun a few years ago by the rightist government continues with the leftist government. Yesterday, Wednesday August 5, 2015the bulldozers of the municipality of Nea Philadelphia demolished the building of the Centauri occupied social, located in the neighborhood park.
The decision to demolish the building was taken in March 2015 . In April 2015 the Centauro Assembly issued a statement entitled “A few words about the occupation of Centaur and the dirty war of the municipal authorities” . The statement was issued by the CSO in the face of the danger of demolition by the municipal authorities. A few months later the mechanisms of state and municipal repression proceeded to demolish the CSO building that had been set up by several people who call themselves anti-authoritarians. Lately Centauro has carried out several solidarity actions with the immigrants who have taken refuge in the Champ de Mars, in the center of Athens. Among them we mention a pickup of food and basic necessities.
In the afternoon of the day of the demolition an assembly was held in the demolished CSO space. Also, an event of information and solidarity took place in the center of Thessaloniki.
