(en) Greece, Athens: About the state barbarism against the student movement (27/06/2006)

Date Thu, 13 Jul 2006 00:07:59 +0300

From: "A.K. [assembly of Salonica]" <ita_gr-A-yahoo.co.uk> To: a-infos-en-A-ainfos.ca
Announcement of the students of the Antiauthoritarian Movement about the
mobilisation of the 27th of July against the Education Ministers Summit in Athens.
> On Tuesday 27th of July students from all over Greece gathered in
Athens so as to demonstrate their will and anxieties against all
those who decide for us without us.
The traditional hatred of the police against the youth, as in past it
was the hatred of the army against the youth, was expressed by the use
of excessive brutality against the students yesterday. A “representative”
of the cops, who appears in a series of TV channels, is repeatedly lying
by claiming that from inside the student march there was a gunshot from
a revolver against the riot police. By such kind of provocateur lies the
praetorian is threatening for a dead student in the near future.

On the 27th, even without a single property destruction action,
the excessive police violence and the generalised use of chemicals
had to be faced by creating a couple of flamed barricades so as to
protect the thousands of students who were trapped and couldn¢t
breathe inside the Law Department.

The antiauthoritarian part of the students played a catalytic role
both in the safeguarding of the march that was not broken apart
from the continuous assaults of the police, and in protecting the
University Asylum by repelling the riot squads who breached the
asylum in Propylaia.

The target of the government and Mr. Polidoras (Minister of Public
Order) is the student movement. That¢s why they launch propaganda
against it by rediscovering “finger theories”, theories of abettors
and manipulators, by naming as such the anarchists and
antiauthoritarians. So they attempt to present us as if we
are some kind of hidden chthonic power who lurks in the shadows.
Such practices remind past “dark years”.

The truth is that we do not hide but we act and speak openly, as
we move in society and with society. We are the antiauthoritarian
component of the student movement, being ourselves students who
participate openly and continuously in all procedures of the
student community, both in the amphitheatres and in the streets.

As part of the student movement we cannot do otherwise but to be
on the front line, both when this movement is in confrontation and
when it decides other kind of activity. Mr. Polidoras and the TV
channels are lying. The first is feeding the second and vice versa,
the first for authority the second for the spectacle.

The only manipulating finger who is driving the reaction of the
students are those who butcher their few and last vested rights.
The struggle of the students is going to continue and is going to
be victorious.

Greece, 28/06/2006
Students from the Antiauthoritarian Movement
PS: We are almost certain that the MAT (riot police) are in a
process of acting independently, and this is proven by the big
hatred and brutality during the student mobilisations. They had
entrapped in the Law Department thousands of students, they have
beaten especially female students and journalists who were
photographing the brutality, they have thrown inside the building
chemicals (not just CS but other kinds like mustard and neural
gases), there were many unconscious and injured students and only
by accident and because of the barricades there was not someone
killed! We are certain that they lust for blood. We call the people
and the students the next time to be more organised and more
aggressive. THEY SHALL NOT PASS!
