Greece: anarchists steal security cameras

From UPI, April 3:

HANIA, Greece — The director of the Mediterranean Architecture Center in Hania on the Greek island of Crete is incensed that all the center’s security cameras have been stolen.

Aris Papadoyiannis told the Kathimerini news service the discovery was made Sunday morning, and called the theft unacceptable and illogical.

The theft occurred after a daytime demonstration by anarchist groups in Hania demanding a ban on closed circuit security TV systems, the report said. Anarchist leaflets were found scattered around the center.

Papadoyiannis, who said the cameras were only switched on when the center had collections, conferences or exhibitions, vowed to hunt down the theives.
