ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Self-proclaimed anarchists stormed the Spanish embassy in Athens on Wednesday (October 11). They scattered leaflets in favour of Catalonian independence, reading "Solidarity is the weapon of the people", and "No Pasaran", a leftist slogan from the Spanish Civil War. The demonstrators, from a group known as Rouvikonas, also unfurled a pro-independence banner from the embassy roof. The embassy staff briefly evacuated the premises, leaving only a few diplomats inside. There were no reports of damage or injuries. Greek police detained 19 people. The banner was taken down after the protesters were detained.
