20 December 2017


In a statement released on the website on 18 December, entitled ‘Green Nemesis Act 3’, the Black and Green Arsonists group claimed that it had taken several products of soft drinks (by Coca-Cola), meat produce (Yfantis), and dairy (Delta) off shop shelves in Athens and Thessaloniki and would return them across supermarket chains from 20–24 December, contaminated with hydrochloric acid.
