(Apologies for cross-posting and probably posting on the wrong lists but this is an urgent situation & the author frankly had no idea what list would more be appropriate)
To our comrades in the Global Indymedia Network:
According to well informed sources, Police officers have requested that the Athens Indymedia Server is immediately disconnected from the computer network where it is currently hosted. The Police want Athens Indymedia to go offline immediately, in the face of the anniversary of the 1973 student uprising against the military junta, to be commemorated this coming Friday.
November 17th is annually commemorated with militant demonstrations and participants often find refuge in university grounds, which are protected by asylum under the country's constitution. It is widely speculated that this year the police will attempt to break the asylum and enter the university grounds - hence their efforts to get athens indymedia offline beforehand.
This is a message to inform the Global Indymedia Network about our current situation; please be alert as Athens Indymedia might be in trouble very soon. This also means that our website might be down for an unknown (hopefully short) period of time. In any case you can reach us at imc-athens-editorial at lists.indymedia.org
We will keep you posted.
In Solidarity & Struggle,
The Athens IMC Collective
