(en) Greece: Announcement of A.K. about the "Social Forums"

Date Tue, 02 May 2006 19:19:25 +0300

The Antiauthoritarian Movement (ie A.K.) had participated in the
Libertarian Social Forum in Paris 2003 and in the Autonomous
Spaces (“BEYOND ESF”) in London 2005, but in both cases
we were critical towards the fact that they took place during the days
of the European Social Forum (ie E.S.F.). Between us and the ESF
there is a deep gap in a lot of issues, but mainly the fact that the aim
of our struggle is not to achieve more bearable conditions of misery
and exploitation, we struggle for the abolition of all forms of
exploitation. Furthermore, in 2005 the point of “contact”
among us and the ESF was on another level, a level which starts
with the collaboration of some organisers of the London
E“S”F with the Metropolitan Police and leads to the
detention rooms and the state courts ( for a detailed explanation with
photo evidence about what happened in London check out this
webpage http://www.resistance2003.gr/en/texts/text.php?id=99 ).
We would prefer if such international meetings (like Autonomous
Spaces in London or the Libertarian Social Forum in Paris) could
take place under different circumstances and on other dates. More
specifically, we mean that we do not like to be defined or depended
in any way from the words or the events of others.
Despite these, we believe that the increasingly global shape of
totalitarianism cannot be combated by organising the Resistance
only on a national basis. So the moments of direct action and
confrontation in Prague, Genoa, Brussels, Seville and Evian were
not adequate for us. There we didn¢t have enough time for
dialogue and future organising. That¢s why we wanted to listen
carefully what they had to say in the amphitheatres the ones who we
have seen by our side on the streets… we wanted to know what
where the dreams of our international comrades and by which
means they wanted to turn them into reality. That¢s why our
disagreements for the timing and the circumstance of the two
previous gatherings were very small in front of who and for which
reasons they were inviting us to participate.
So we answered to the call of our international comrades and we
made our best to help and participate. But, now in Greece the
Antiauthoritarian Movement shall not participate or organise any
kind of “FORUM”, neither alternative nor mainstream.
