(en) Greece, Anarchist student assembly (Athens): "To take back the life in our hands": Appeal students anarchists secondary to the student mobilizations (gr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 12 Nov 2016 11:42:51 +0200

Text of the "Anarchist Student Assembly area (Athens)" published on the website of the Assembly on the occasion of the demonstrations of high school students. The title of the original Greek is "to take back the life in our hands." ---- Again students are not in schools but in the streets claiming the life and dignity they deserve. It is a life that we lose the minute in the school-oppressive. E dignity trampled daily with dozens of pretexts: Eliminations of powers in technical schools, shortage of teachers, materials and school books, schools without heating due to lack of oil, fainting pupil hunger, dangerous buildings, abuse of power by many teachers, very oppressive school rules, with equal penalties oppressive, an educational system based on tests and antagonism, exterminating us and removes all creative and free thinking, "support classes" (in private schools) that they are already required and eliminate in practice the "free education", the pressure of entrance exams, which leads us all to a state of stress and exhaustion, and some, unfortunately, even suicide. Pondering all this (and much more that will not fit on a sheet of paper) we conclude that we have every reason to organize ourselves as a school community, and to fight in the streets and in our schools, claiming the life we deserve .

We claim:

- Transportation to school, free and secure for all those in need.

- Free food for all students

- Financing needs of state funds

- Elimination of the abolition of the powers of technical schools, and put an end to layoffs of teachers

- Immediate integration in schools of children of immigrants-refugees who wish

- A school community open to all, without discrimination and distinctions

- Immediate access to the painful measures, such as the free labor of students of technical schools as learners, rejection of the proposals of the Committee for Dialogue and school-dungeon that we are trying to impose lock

We will not allow that no one tampers with our struggles.

We all know that the concentrations and student marches, such as the November 7 , are called for "coordination committees schools-students-technical schools" e.tc. At the same time, however, it seems that nobody knows more of these "committees" which over call us to go outside! No one knows where and when meetings are held, who the summon, who are organized, how and on what basis decisions are made on them. Despite all that, these few who participate in the meetings of these committees coordination without asking anyone's opinion, make decisions on important issues concerning all-as those-those involved in the demonstrations, and "manipulate" at their convenience. Occasionally it might do us the "favor" to call someone open assembly, which always gets his way.

Why such secrecy? Because people and groups as those behind the (supposedly "apolitical") student committees want to act as manipulators and lead their classmates to the party organizations to which they already participate. For those who want to sneak in as a mere "students" are actually members of partisan youths, whose line adopted. And to be more precise, those who know something of the organization of student demonstrations and has chosen not to turn a blind eye, is well aware that these "committees" are manipulated by members and instructive youth party "Communist" ( KNE) and in general for this match. The reason why these people are not going to admit (acknowledge) never its relations with the party youth, is because simply if the student community the know, quickly give them back and organized to take the issue of the student struggle in their hands. For the same reason consistently they ensure isolation, silence and taunt those who have (express) different ideas of their own, those who dare to participate in the fight expressing their ideals, and those who resist manipulation and partisanship, informing classmates of their existence.

An illustrative example of how these committees get push back our struggle are the characteristics they acquire (take) the demonstrations organized by them. The same ceremonial marches each year, which actually are a mere walks in the center of Athens. The same concentrations outside the Ministry of Education, where we waited patiently until our demands in a way unknown to us are satisfied. (At these concentrations) representatives of the protesters dialogue with ministers, general secretaries and mayors, and then go out to confirm what we all knew, or who have not achieved anything. It is totally logical, since nothing is achieved pleading, however high pleas shout.

If high school students are not cast off these elements of partisanship and manipulation, struggle and their just demands are never going to move forward, but will continue to be the appropriate way for KNE (and any KNE) can recruit members micropolitical and play their games.

A fight for an education and a different world.

As a group of anarchists secondary students, from various neighborhoods and schools of Athens, we support the student demonstrations, actively participating in the fight, to the satisfaction of their demands. Occupations of schools, student marches, rallies and protests, information actions of our classmates, combative interventions, clashes with cops: All means of action should be used in the context of our struggle, since all (each their way) are pressure means necessary to achieve our goal. As mentioned above, nothing, never and nowhere has been achieved begging.

Participate in movements aimed at meeting the demands of the student community, however, we do not limit ourselves to that. We fight for a truly free education, to which everyone has access and the ability to adapt it to your needs. We want a school whose epicenter is the student and desires, not the needs of the market and the capitalist system, and desires and patterns, small and large. We have chosen to organize, here and now, our resistance to the educational (and not only educational) system, face the State Capital and their protectors. We oppose the exploitation of man by man, and all hierarchical power structures. We defend the interests and struggles of the oppressed of this world against their oppressors, against the oppressors of all. We oppose the State, the fascists and the employers, moving towards a society of solidarity and fellowship, in which decisions are taken by all equally, towards a society in which everyone involved in the production according to their possibilities and enjoy their products according to their needs. What queremo everything for everyone. And we are going to get.

Everyone in the Propylaea (Old University of Athens), on November 7 , at 12: 00h.

immediate satisfaction of student demands. All men and women in occupations, demonstrations, clashes.

Organization and struggle for social revolution, anarchy and communism.
