Update #39 from the Occupied London Blog

- The revolted of Greece organise to aid our brothers and sisters in Gaza
Mainstream media reports have revealed that the U.S. Navy is attempting
to ship 325 20-foot containers of ammunition (over 3000 tons) from the
private greek port of Astakos to Israel, in an emergency shipment of
arms to aid the occupation in its ongoing war crimes against the
Palestinian people in Gaza. Information as for when this shipment will
be attempted is conflicting; possible dates are the 15th, 25th and 31st
of January.

Yesterday (10.01), the Popular front for the Liberation of Palestine
called upon "the Greek movement, the Greek people and all international
progressive forces to halt the planned shipment of U.S. arms to Israel
from the Greek port of Astakos" (read the full callout below). One day
later, groups and individuals have already responded and are organising
for a national mobilisation/ blockade of the port of Astakos: the
anti-authoritarian movement, the anti-war internationalist movement and
Astakos' local assembly of groups and individuals have already issued
statements calling for a gathering at the port of Astakos on Thursday, 15.1, at 1pm.
