(en) Greece, Never again fascism by OADE - Social direct action

Date Thu, 16 Jun 2005 11:28:03 +0300

Dear residents of Prefectures of Messinia and Ilia
We, the members of Federation of Anarchists of Western Greece
(OADE), who live in the Prefectures of Messinia and Ilia (1) are
interested about the preservation and widening of the individual and
collective social rights and freedom.
Today we take a stance about an unpleasant episode which is
promoted to be on in early September 2005 in the region of Meligala
(2) and which will brings our memories back in a dark period of the
contemporary Greek history.
It is said from leaks in the local press, that nationalist and fascist
organisations from European countries will organise an assembly in
early September in order to discuss how they can return in the political
limelight crashing out every libertarian and humanitarian perception
has been conquered through huge social struggles and revolutions in
all the world.

We all already know the dirty role of nationalism and also every theory
which levels the human being for the profit by any totalitarian power.
We all already know which crimes were committed in Greece during
the German occupation and the Civil War by the then dominant
parties of the Left and the Right which in order to satisfy their will for
power did not respect even unarmed people, families, children…

Today in 2005 in Greece we realise a resurgence of nationalistic-right
wing ideology expressed mainly by LAOS party of Karatzaferis and
small marginal hooligan style fascist organisations. All these political
reactionary formations are exploiting the social dissatisfaction due to
the interweaving and decay of the existing constitutional model, whilst
they try to acquire the influence they need to spread havoc and
violence against everything different than their abnormal antisocial

We must not relax!

We believe there is an alternative prospect in the course of humanity.
We believe the society can be organised from the bottom up, without
parties and saviours, without racial and class divisions. It depends on
the degree of its awareness but also its organisational formation, with
which it will be line up against the existing constitutional model,
which it will overthrow, if this society, the society without any
authority of the above, will be achieved. Until then (establishment of
the free society of equals) we will not allow any violation of the rights
and the freedom we have gained as a society.

However, today in front in this announced event in advance in early
September, we will not remain crossing our hands. We call everyone
who does not want a retreat in the reactionary periods of the history to
take a stance. It is not the job of political organisations and repressive
mechanisms of the state to answer in this event. Is is an affair of the
people to answer against this provocation. In front of the united people
every reactionary reptile, regardless its colour, is leaving.

We, the members of Federation of Anarchists of Western Greece
(OADE) who live in the Prefectures of Messinia and Ilia, as a part of
the people, we call for the formation of a Popular Antifascist Initiative
at the same time with the official announcement of this meeting. The
very aim of this Initiative it cannot be other than the cancellation of
this meeting, by any means necessary.

Prefectures of Messinia and Ilia

1. Regions of Western Peloponnisos, Western Greece.

2. Meligalas has a symbolic emotional historical meaning for the
Greek fascists and right wing, because during the Civil War
1946-1949 there took place a really destructive battle between right
wing and left wing forces which won by the left. Numerous of the right
wing followers died in this battlefield.
