February 3rd at 2 PM at Kupoli of New student house, Mannerheimintie 5 B 7th floor
The present recession is not an ordinary hiccup in capitalist circulation. A terminal recession results as economic growth hits the limits of cheap energy. The amount of free labour de-grows.

Οι φρουροί ήταν ακροδεξιών απόψεων και προκαλούν τους επισκέπτες.  Λόγω της εμφάνισης συγκρούσεων διακόπηκε πρόωρα, αλλά οι φρουροί προσπάθησαν να διαρκέσει μερικά επισκέπτες ως ομήρους, υποσχόμενος τιμωρία τους από τους φίλους τους, ποδόσφαιρο χούλιγκαν-εθνικιστές. Επισκέπτες αντιστάθηκαν, φρουροί άνοιξαν πυρ από ένα τραυματικό όπλα, αλλά στο τέλος έχουν εξουδετερωθεί.

Security of the club consisted of supporters of the far right, and were provoking guests. Due to conflict, concert was got halted prematurely, but the security attempted to take some guests as hostages, promising them punishment from their friends - nationalistic football hooligans. Visitors of the concert resisted, the security opened fire with rubber coated metal bullets, but soon guests of the concert gained upper hand and the security was neutralized.
