We are republishing the below statement by the Initiative of Solidarity with the Palestinian People in Greece, organizing the demonstration on 20 January for Palestine in Athens:

On Saturday, January 13, a krav maga seminar was scheduled at the Olympic Athletic Center of Athens (OAKA) with the participation of Israeli army trainers. As Initiative of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, we called for a gathering and march to OAKA (https://athens.indymedia.org/event/72683/) to make it clear to the murderers and torturers of the Palestinians that they are undesirable in our country and that they will always find us against them.

A few days after the announcement of our call, the krav maga federation announced the cancellation of the seminar due to the “call from the Initiative of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, in favor of the struggling Palestinian people.”

The cancellation of the seminar is part of a wider plan of actions of solidarity with the Palestinian people. It is a victory of the movement of solidarity with the Palestinian people and it urges us to continue the mobilizations with even greater determination

We call everybody in the march to the American embassy next Saturday, January 20, at 18:00.

LIBERTY FOR PALESTINE
VICTORY TO THE ARMS OF THE PALESTINIAN RESISTANCE
