On November 7, 2013 at 4:20 in the morning (local time) the riot police invaded in the headquarters of the Greek public tv and radio (ERT) in Athens, a building that was taken over οn June 11, 2013 by the workers and operated in a self-organised way when all 2.656 of them were left jobless in just one day.

A lot of people that gathered outside the building in solidarity were attacked with asphyxiating gas at 6 in the morning.

There is an urgent call for solidarity outside the building where hundreds of people have already gathered in solidarity.
