The terrorist organization “Revolutionary Struggle” assumed responsibility for the bomb attack on April 10 against the Supervision Department of the Bank of Greece in Amerikis Street, where the office of Wes McGrew, the IMF resident representative for Greece, is also located.

"Although the blast was aimed at the Bank of Greece, the central offices of Piraeus Bank, which is located across the street, also suffered damage. This fact makes the attack even more successful, since Piraeus became one of the largest good banks with the purchase of the Agricultural Bank Agrotiki and benefitted from the rapacious policy of the memorandum of the government, which has been applied against Greek people in recent years and is one of the economic factors which are co-responsible for their suffering," reads the statement.

Analysing its tactics, the organization stated that the attack was carried out with a car bomb containing 75 kg blast.

The reasons

The statement, which was posted on an anarchist website, mentions that "four years after the attack against the organization, the state and the many enemies of the armed struggle celebrated ‘the success of the dismemberment’ of ‘Revolutionary Struggle’, but this attack has refuted them."

The organization "dedicates" the attack to "anarchist comrade Lambros Foundas, a member of ‘Revolutionary Struggle’, who was killed in an armed clash with the police in Daphne on 10 March 2010."

The date

The organization explained the choice of the date of the attack with Greece’s exit on the markets in search of the first long-term loan after 4 years, while on the next day, 11 April, the leader of the most powerful European state, which plays a major role in the imposition of extreme neoliberal policies across Europe, the perfect expression of the interests of the economic elite, German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in Greece for the political and economic capitalization of the "Greek success."
