(en) Greece, Libertarian Thessaloniki Initiative: Now (8-11-16): intervention at the American Consulate in Thessaloniki (gr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 12 Nov 2016 11:42:45 +0200

The visit of the outgoing US President Barack Obama in Greece anything but courtesy is. Beyond the strong symbolic weight of the visit of an American president on the eve of the anniversary of the Polytechnic uprising (and even in a "left-wing" government) the content of Obama's coming could be summed up in "business as usual". As is known, of course, these jobs are always contaminated with the blood of the people. ---- The world today is not Eei nothing to do with the welter of words on the "end of history" made after the end of the cold war and tried to provide a theoretical justification for global autocracy US. Amid capitalist crisis antagonisms between the imperialisms have turned vast areas of the planet in slaughterhouses, at the same time the epelafnontas capitalism attacked fiercely in the lives of the exploited and even oppressed in countries where until now the world of work retained some rights he won through struggles and blood in the last century.

The agenda of Obama's visit to Greece is diverse. Initially we must not forget that the US is actively involved in the Greek crisis. The North American capitalism ever since Pinochet promoted by the IMF in the total deregulation of the labor market and the frontal attack on employment rights. Given the intention of SYRIZA / ANEL government to open the issue of work aiming at the final settling with whatever is left to remind labor unionism can easily imagine the results of the discussion. The main reason but the Obama visit is none other than the developments in the wider region of the eastern Mediterranean and the Middle. East. The US has since promoted the transformation of the Arab Spring in process to suit their plans for the region, having primed the most reactionary jihadists tracks like ISIS, have engaged in a hopeless competition with other imperialisms (such as Russian) mainly in front of Syria and Iraq and in Libya, Yemen, etc. They convert a large part of the M. East field in open warfare with avevaio future. The Greek state, loyal to NATO commitments involved directly and indirectly in this conflict. Due to the geopolitical balance is imperative for the US to stabilize this participation. Finally we must not forget the classic trade weapons the US is doing with their two best clients of areas, the Greek and the Turkish state.

We for our part we have no illusions. We are not opposed to US imperialism having the back of our mind to ally with another imperialism. There fantasize "folk" or national class collaboration fronts against the "external" enemy. Our enemy is total world domination, the state, capitalism and imperialism whatever form or guise though it gets. We understand that the by-the-less, the proletarians and oppressed of this world have no interest in the sovereignty of the state and capital, either of a national or supra-interstate sign, have no interest in escalating warfare caused by imperialist antagonisms. Unlike what should unite them is the struggle for a universal society of freedom and equality, the struggle for libertarian communism.

For this reason we stand alongside those struggling against oppression. Kurds of Syria with which the United States playing a very dirty game, helping militarily against ISIS but also supporting the murderous regime Erdogan who do not miss an opportunity to attack them. Palestinians who for decades not bow their heads and fight for their freedom. All the peoples of the Middle. East, Asia and Latin America who refuse to yield to.

Even in the heart of the beast, however, within the US developed resistances. Not long ago the big nationwide strikes of workers in the food supply as required and managed increases in the minimum wage. The Black Lives Matter movement also fighting for years against police violence and murder but also in general against racial and class oppression that never ceased to exist African Americans. Also a great movement has begun to grow in prisons where prisoners combining many forms of struggle as strikes, riots and hunger strikes resist unpaid forced labor forced to give private contractors, ie they resist turning them into modern slaves. Indigenous Sioux recently dug up the hatchet of war resisting the passage of a catastrophic oil pipeline through their lands. These are just some examples of the oppressed in the US struggles remind us that the struggle against imperialism and capitalism has no national colors, is not determined by national borders nor can it be achieved by allying with the various bourgeoisies.

Today, Tuesday, November 8 we intervene at the American Consulate in Thessaloniki. We wish in this way to get involved early in the protests against the arrival of US President. We invite all / s to go down the road the day of Obama's visit to the war against the state, capitalism and imperialism.
