No backing down!
February 17, 2021
Everything we experienced at the demonstration on 13/2 has been carved in our collective memory. Moments of a never before seen, for Cyprus, state brutality and police violence against a demonstration. Moments of hard proof that we are on a slope of capitalist barbarism. But at the same time they will stay with us as moments where hundreds of us collectively held the street, with the courage that it takes to face an army of cops. Moments where our solidarity and determination could not be terrorised by any rabid cop, by any baton landing on our heads, by any use of pepper spray and water cannon.
On Saturday 20/2 we demonstrate again:
We demonstrate for our siblings fighting inside migrant detention camps.
We demonstrate for the collective defence of our lives and bodies.
We demonstrate for health, freedom, solidarity and resistance.
Fear is changing sides. The storm is coming.
