Today, Sunday, February 2nd, 2018 at 06:00 a group of comrades from Anarchist Collective Rouvikonas attacked the headquarters of Novartis in Athens using hammers and bottles of paint.
Novartis is a mutli-billion dollar multinational corporation that does business in the pharmaceutical sector. This monstrous company stands accused in many countries throughout the world in multiple cases of corruption, manipulation of the medicine market and money laundering.
In Greece, the so-called Novartis Gate involves politicians, directors of the health sector and several hundred doctors. The total loss for the public health sector caused by the activities of the company are estimated at being between 28 to 50 billion Euros over a period of 10 to 15 years.
We took this action to declare our opposition to such activities as they are against the public interest.
Note from Insurrection News: Novartis is also linked to Huntington Life Sciences. A campaign began in the late 1990s against Huntington Life Sciences who ran the largest vivisection labaratory in Europe, where thousands of animals were deprived of their freedom and subjected to continuous torture for the economic benefit of a few companies.
