We are so happy to find ourselves again in the Polytechnic University campus of Athens that it seems to be our most favorite place fororganizing our celebrations. The first raves in Greece started here byVoid Network in 1992...and is been a long long wayuntil now...The president of the university triesto keep the campus as a closed castle during the weekendsand negates any chance of autonomous iniciative that comesfrom independent students or citizens...We will not allow this to happen...With our small powers we fight for Utopia and FreedomWe want to see many different companies of friendsto reclaim the university campus all around Europe and express their ideas, their lifestyles, their arts and visions...
