Members of the anarchist group known as Rubicon attacked the residence of Arthur Spyrou, the Australian Ambassador to Greece.
They scattered flyers and wrote slogans on the walls of the residence located in the upmarket suburb of Psychico.
Rubicon later posted on athens.indymedia.org, stating that the ‘protest’ was the group’s response to the recent bushfires. “At a time when the planet already has a negative sustainability balance, an unprecedented fire destroys everything living over 40 million square metres of land in Australia,” the statement said. “Once again the sun has darkened in Oceania. If we do not defend our country, no one will. The more the monster of capitalism develops, the more necessary the struggle for land and freedom will be.”
No arrests have been made by the police as yet.
