Towards an intolerant revolutionary unionised struggle! --- Workers, Farmers, Students
The government of “New Democracy”, continuing exactly the same policy as PASOK (the previous so-called
socialist government), brings laws about the third level of education (universities) which:
• Intensify the studies with the restriction of transfer of subjects
and the expulsion of those who do not take a Degree during “their time”.
• Legalise the foundation of private universities.
• Establish more links between the enterprises (multinationals) and the universities.
• Evaluate the university staff (lecturers, tutors etc) under
(political) party criteria (preference).

• “Split” the Degrees by creating specialised Faculties,
attacking at the same time against all the workers’ rights which
have been won until now.

• Admit the young people into a continuous education process
and also into a bigger competition between them.

• Create the conditions for restriction of student unionism by
manufacturing students-“cogwheels” of the capitalistic
system, tamed machines and not really educated people.

This process is the adaptation in the European directives. In
combination with the attack against the workers’ rights, the
increase of hours of work, the reduction of wages and pension
benefits and the bosses' right to fire whoever they like. State and
Capital started this attack for a bigger profitability and power.
Henceforth the university students will be in uncertainty, regardless
if they have passed in “good” Univeristy Faculties and wait
for a “good” re-establishment of their future.

The authorities are not kidding - and we see this through the
arrogance of government ministers and their allies - as they promote
the proletarisation of bigger sections of the population.
Simultaneously, with the help of government employees in the
controlled trade unions and with the corporate unionism, the
exploited are multiple-splitted, trying to make impossible the class
solidarity that is asked in order to overthrow the present situation.

We have to draw conclusions. As long as the student struggle
continue for only “strong” Degrees, away from the
production areas, away from the workers, the farmers, the other
exploited and oppressed, it is something that plays the game of the
government. It is what they are waiting for, to engage in just single
and corporate struggles.

The only solution is the united class struggle, along with the
workers, the unemployed, the poor. We should undertake an action
by ourselves. In the current circumstances, the students should
unionised taking their affair in their own hands, participating actively
by themselves and no assign the struggle in the political parties and
go holidays. However, this is not enough.

We should function in a unionised but also in a revolutionary way.
No, we must not struggle for only “strong” Degrees in order
to practise power on the workers later, but to demand equality of the
wages of all workers - graduated or not - and a better life quality for

The only competition that we must accept is the class competition
against the employers, the government and the State who are the
only responsible for the current social misery and individual

Only with this line of sailing we can wait for victories. When the
government undestands that we are organised and give the battle all
together by class struggle, then it will take all back. It will become
here as in France during the previous months. Then the government
will begin the political manoeuvres, but we never should wait from it
to become a defender of our interests; it will always be a supporter of
the interests of sovereign classes.

Our class action should not stop with the withdrawal of these laws
which are just one step outside of our door. It should be continued,
extending it in all the spectrum of the society, coiling together more
and more people, up to the final victory!
