Hello friends and comrades of the world,
We hope you're all fine wherever you are and you still struggle for
dignity, freedom and social justice. The reason for which I'm sending
you this message is considerably important and we would like you to pay
attention to a proposal we'd like to make from here, Greece, a proposal
which demands the coordination, the action and the passion of all of us
who want to call ourselves as libertarians. We are a group of comrades
from Heraklion of Crete, Greece, and we've thought about organizing an
event of solidarity to the palestinian people (not the fanatic
fundamentalists) who struggle and get brutally murdered every day
(together with heroic figures like Rachel Corrie, Tom Hurndall etc)
and, on the other side, to the Israeli consciencious objectors who have
refused to join the army of their country in the occupied areas and
because of this attitude are now in jail.

The reason for which we address you too is that we wish this event to
take place in all the parts of the world where there are anarchists, ON
THE SAME DAY.

We all know that crimes like those that are committed every day in
Palestine (and in Iraq, Afghanistan) are results of the world's
leaders' plans, targets and strategies. They are crimes that are
committed because of and through their global web of interests and
correlations. That's why we believe we GLOBALLY have to face them.That
is to say, if 200 persons demonstrate here in Heraklion, none of those
criminals will be bothered, none will listen to our voice. THEY MUST
FEEL THE PRESSURE. And, under the given conditions that dominate in the
world now, we'll succeed in this only or principally if we start
demonstrating massively, dynamically, all together coordinated and at
the same time.

Our proposal consists in the following points: - In proportion to the
problems, emergencies etc that we face in the place we live in, we'll
all arrange a date within the forthcoming September - October, when all
of us or a big amount of us will come out in the streets to demonstrate
in order to declare our solidarity to the people we previously referred
to - Each group, collectivity, federation, syndicate, organization,
individual etc will arrange autonomously of course the kind of action
that will assume at that date, according to its possibilities,
potential problems etc. But the only certain thing will be that we'll
all organize a demonstration out in the streets. After that, each one
will continue the way they'll judge better according to the local
sircumstances - We'll type a poster concerning this event. Now, there
are two options:

a) if we can agree on the content of the poster in a way that we'll all
type the same slogans on it, each one in his/her own language, would be
great. This is the most difficult point of the case, although not
impossible. In this case, there will be specific proposals

b) otherwise, each organization will type what they judge better, but
we all put the same date and, if possible, the names and the
areas/countries where each collectivity is from. The general sign will
be "Anarchists - Libertarians" or something, according to what we'll
agree on in the course. This proposal of course, sumits to discussion
and elaboration. This is a general framework. Through e-mails, phone
calls if necessary etc, we'll gradually reach an agreement about the
whole thing. That's why we've thought about organizing it in September
- October: so that we'll all have the time to communicate and
coordinate our action till then, or. If we judge it better, earlier or
later.

If you approve of this idea, please become a repeater and transfer it
to all the groups etc you're in contact with or you simply know and we
begin organizing it - the sooner the better.

The e-mail which in the beginning will constitute the centre of this
communication till we need to expand it among us, is the one in this
message: nikosfindelmundo@yahoo.com

If you pass this message to any people you know, please let each other
know the names of the groups, organizations etc so that all of us will
know who have already got it and we won't repeat it to those who've
already received it. We've already started to discuss it in Greece and
the first lines of the plan are the ones we've mentioned above.

Friends and comrades, it isn't too difficult: let's prove to the
people, the capitalists and especially ourselves, that we constitute a
global force, that we're capable of utilize the media (Internet etc)
for continuous large-scale mobilizations, that we can organize
ourselves and move all together towards a target. If we succeed, we'll
contribute a substantial help for the case of the Palestinian people
and the Israeli strugglers and, additionally, we'll have created an
action without precedent which will be able to be repeating in the
future for more and more cases that concern us.

Let's just try. This message has already been sent to various anarchist
groups, organizations, individuals etc in Spain, France, Mexico,
Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Venezuela. We've already had the first
response: the comrades of the "El Libertario" magazine in Venezuela
said they'll think about the whole thing and reproduce it to another
200 persons and organizations in all Latin America. Let's try for our
history and conscience. We expect your answers, proposals, demurs,
comments

>From Heraklion of Crete, Greece, and on behalf of the circle of
comrades that took this iniciative,

Warm greetings, "evangelismos" Squat, Heraklion of Crete, Greece
