(en) Greece: Communique of Antiauthoritarian Movement about the surveillance scandal

Date Sat, 04 Feb 2006 12:27:52 +0200

This is a communique of Antiauthoritarian Movement about the
surveillance of telephones of its members: Grigoris Tsilimantos,
Argiris Mouratidis, Attila Ihtiar and Marina Meintani (who used to
be a member of the antiauthoritarian newspaper “Babylonia”)
The recent events, about the “discovery” of a surveillance
network which was installed in the software of the mobile-phone
company Vodafone, are coming to confirm with the most loud way
that the “Big Brother” consists a necessary condition and not
an error of the global established regime.

This necessary condition has neither rules nor borders in order to
impose a new model of human being, the model of the totally
controlled and absolutely transparent individual to those who process
the power and the authority mechanisms, whose spearhead is the
USA. First targets are, and they are going to be in the future as well,
all of them who belong from this side, the side of the Resistance.

No one has any illusions about the fact that this entire surveillance
network was not installed only for spying on 100 phones. For a series
of decades the N.S.A. is the global ear and the global eye (whose
local shop is the OSAC which is stationed in the USA Embassy in
Athens), the application of the Echelon program, the Shegen
Agreement, the terrolaws and the recent EU agreement for the
constant and permanent surveillance of all the communications
means of millions of citizens, all these consist the greedy beast of the
authority control.

But the real sense of this case is that they must receive a response by
the community of all who are part of the social struggles, a response
by the people who don’t compromise and refuse to sell out their
existence and dignity to the mechanisms of authority, to the bosses
and to the state. In this category belong the three imprisoned social
fighters Aspiotis, Karasarinis and Kalaitzidis.

As about the surveillance of the prime minister Karamanlis and his
council of governmental ministers by the same network who was
spying on our comrades, we have to declare only this: Cronus is still
eating his children!

[ Cronus, a figure of greek mythology whose name may derive from
the verb kreno, which means 'to exercise sway', 'to reign over', 'to
govern', the son of Uranus and Gaia and the youngest of the twelve
Titans. His wife was also one of the Titans, since he married his
sister Rhea. Their offspring were Demeter, Hestia, Hera, Hades,
Poseidon and Zeus. Once Cronus had castrated Uranus, he and his
wife Rhea took over the throne of dominance over all beings. But not
all was well for Cronus, as he believed that his fate was to be
overthrown by one of his own children. To prevent this from
happening he began to swallow his newborn, taking them at birth
then swallowing them whole, in order nobody to be able to threat his
authority. ]
