Make racists afraid again

Title

Make racists afraid again

Coverage

Athens, Greece

Description

A solidarity banner displayed in the politically left-leaning neighborhood of Exarcheia combines three slogans: "Make racists afraid again," "A riot is the language of the unheard (MLK)," "From the USA to Greece, solidarity in the streets." The banner is strategically based in the location where in 2008 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos was killed at the hands of the police, thus gesturing to a transnational geography of political solidarity with regard to police violence.
