On the 13th of December 2008, around 6 p.m., anarchists and members of DSPA (leftist group) organised an action near Greek consulate in St. Petersburg, Russia. The action was not permitted by the authorities so it was rather short and lasted for about 5 minutes. Activists distributed some leaflets to the people passing by and spoke about the Greek way of dealing with police oppression. Then they lit some torches and threw them at the consulate and police cars, chanting “Cops murder, the authorities cover it up”. The cops did not manage to arrest anyone.
