One guy from FA-Wroclaw, Koltun (Piotr Goral) will have a court case.
He's accused of throwing eggs on cops and beating them with a baton.
The Food not Bombs team from Wroclaw have served food at
the hospital that is being occupied by the nurses. People whom the
have helped by blockading evictions from homes have contacted
them with support. The local media have accused the anarchists
of organising the protest of the nurses which was pacified by the police.
This wasn't true, but the nurses stood up for the jailed activists.

A lot of people living in Wroclaw come from Ukraine (this
results from post-war population shifts) and so it happened that
anarchists active in anti-eviction campaigns were greeted
by some oldtimers as the followers of the ideas of
Nestor Makhno.
