(en) Greece, Thessaloniki: Antiwar march - "Nations, states and religions have bloodstained the whole world!"

Date Thu, 20 Jul 2006 17:25:00 +0300

On Tuesday 18/07/06 an antiwar march took place in Thessaloniki. In the
march there were organisation and parties of the left and passed through
the USA consulate and finished in front of the Ministry of Macedonia and
Thrace. In the end of the march an antiauthoritarian bloc was formed, even
if there was not such a call from before. The following chants were heard:
“Let our rage become the graveyard of all states! War against the war of the bosses!”
“In Palestine and Lebanon the lies are over! In the whole world the states are made of blood!”
“No soldier never and ever, we don¢t fight for the bosses!”
“Nations, states and religions have bloodstained the whole world!”
. . . e.t.c.

After the fall of the regimes of Eastern Europe and the final degradation
of the USSR, humanity came in front of a new status where we began to live
and we still live under the “New Order Era” which was imposed by victorious
empire of the “Cold War Era”. The New Order that was imposed by the United
States of America demands the total subordination both on a state-government
level and especially on a social level, turning the citizens into obedient
subjects. The New Order demands “earth and water” (1*) and on the same time
is changing the economy even of the Western Countries, and finally is
creating a global mercenary army.

The american dominance achieved to transform the dogma of “development
through the marginal conflict”, which was their doctrine during the Cold
War Era, into a continuous for 16 years Undeclared World War, which is
carried out under the pretence of international terrorism, thus demanding
the social consent from the populations of the west. In other words, they
want the people to be their accomplices in the policies of the NATO
coalition sovereigns.

This Undeclared World War is taking characteristics either of
international sanctions (embargo, external control of national
programs, integration in the “axis of evil”), or of military
intervention against the states that “hide and help the international
terrorism”, or action against organised groups that commit acts of
“terrorism”, or even military action against whole societies and

It is quite interesting that in the frame of promoting the interests
of the empire, everyone can observe that very often and very easily
the allies are turned into enemies and the enemies into allies,
always according to the present situation and not on the basis their
real characteristics. Such occasions are Saddam Hussein, Bin Laden,
the Muzahentin and the Taliban, who used to bear the title of the
“freedom fighters” some years ago. It is crystal clear that the
resurrection of the extreme islamism (fundamentalism) is the work
of the USA.

What is happening now in Palestine and Lebanon is the continuity
of the policies of the New Order, which is imposed by the bosses
of the planet. We enter in a situation where we cannot foresee its
end, but the only thing we can surely foretell is that the people
will pay dearly, both the people of the west and the people of the
east. We have seen such consequences before with the attacks in USA
on the 11th of September, the attacks in Madrid on the 11th of March,
and the attacks in the metro of London.

The antiwar movement, which was developed against the war in Iraq,
was not able to develop the required resistances against the policies
of the global dominance, and that¢s why it was not able to stop the
war. The only thing which was expressed by the antiwar movement was
an abstract “stop the war” without any kind of criticism to the roots
that give birth to the war. We must avoid the mistakes of the past, we
must learn from these mistakes, and we must move forward by building
an antiwar movement that will not only question the war, but it must
move to a direct confrontation with the foundations and the structures
of the system of the New Order which gives birth to the war.

(*1) Speaking of “earth and water” we mean “total obedience”.
It's an expression taken from ancient greek history, when the
Persian Empire invaded Greece and the Persian king Darius
demanded “earth and water” before any invasion, as a sign of
unconditional surrender and slavery.
