(en) Greece: A struggle with a cause, a struggle which evolves

Date Tue, 12 Dec 2006 22:37:32 +0200

As a result of an over a year process of gathering, discussions and arguments, an organized, collaborate movement is starting to evolve within the anarchist struggle in Greece. It's called "Co ordinate of actions of anarchists and antiautoritarians in solidarity with the immigrants and refugees".
Last Saturday during the 5th Coordinate there was a demonstration of about 700 people which headed towards the police department in which illegal immigrants are jailed, to demonstrate its solidarity with the immigrants and its opposition to any kind of "papers" for the immigrants.

Its main slogan was: "No papers, no nations, no states, no countries, no exploitation".
As "papers" have became the main mean of segregation between "legal" and "illegal" immigrants and therefore a life term rat race for the immigrants, it has become a nodal point for the discussion over our approach to this matter. Along with other nodal points such as the concentration camps, the triple exploitation of women immigrants ( class, gender, nation), the integration of immigrants in the dominant way, our relationship with the immigrants and other, form the main core of our discussions and efforts.

Exploring the boundaries of such an experiment within the anarchist struggle, we had to deal (and of course still dealing) with matters of organization, of coherence and of different approaches.

The willingness to succeed against all odds and in favor of us and the struggle, is what has kept as together until now. The willingness to knead our thoughts, and perspective in favor of us and the struggle has to be the element of our future coherence.

P.S. For a better understanding of the different perspectives that participate in this experiment i will post further information from bulletins.
Also when a translation (in English because there has been a great effort in multilingual bulletins ) is available of the speech that has come out of this process i will post it here.
