(en) anarchist collective Oktana APO - Housing is a social good and not a commodity (gr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 28 Nov 2016 09:51:23 +0200

Inside the lunar landscape of Greek reality, as formulated in the period of capitalist crisis, the right-left governments and the European Union, the social wealth bleeding campaign puts another purpose: housing. - After the frontal attack the state and capital to work, agriculture, insurance, social liberties, the environment and social goods, raise their targeted one of the few remaining materials supports the working class and oppressed. ---- The antiasfalistiko bill passed by parliament, is another face of the new war which has declared the local and international capital to employees, self-employed, farmers, pensioners and by extension to all people to maintain their incomes (children, relatives with chronic diseases, etc.). After the new criminal bill in social security, is more evident than ever that an all-out class tried in housing areas, insurance, health, leading to a concerted proletarian payment refusal is necessary.

Leaving now aside every pretext, the recent enactment of prerequisites in late 2015 by the SYRIZA-ANEL government, paving the way for the advent and international finance capital against the house. Manage Red loans and real estate longer enter into international investment houses and funds, and in particular, as the guardian of the interests of debtors against the above companies, displayed by the Bank of Greece and the Banking Code of Conduct (!).

After 'legal drafting improvements "in November substantially slash whatever protections existed until now, the framework of the auctions protection afstiropoieitai dramatically timeouts remain unclear, while new abstract concepts are introduced as the" cooperative borrower. " Clarifications, definitions, reviews etc., Pass all the banking crisis. The government washes its hands, simply asking bankers to show understanding and grace (see. Dragasakis November statements). Queues of debtors in local courts late last December, for joining the relatively favorable settings Katseli Law, reveal the dimensions of the threat. The application for inclusion in the Act itself is a costly process with the required amount could rise to about 1000 euro. Even the claim to protect, handsomely paid.

From 1/1/2016 abolished the possibility of zero dose for those who have no income or unable not only to pay their installments and to cope with daily expenses of their families. In addition, it opened the process of free sale and reducing the costs of auctioning. If that is the first auction prove fruitless, the second starts at half the market value of the property, and if he too is not completed, the third starts from zero starting price. Even if the property is auctioned at an amount lower than the commercial value and the loan amount, the borrower still owes the bank the remaining amount. And loses his home and still owes. In essence sought from borrowers repayment of the loan for the second time. And this at a time when many of the red loans have essentially paid to banks through taxes and bank recapitalization.

So if someone is unable to repay the banks the net profit will be marked "uncooperative" and home will be coming under the hammer or alternatively, the loan can be passed into the hands of investment houses, which with even greater ease than banks -as not necessarily expect the repayment of the loan will convert the property to a financial product and gamble multiplying their profits. For us, the defense of the first housing and preventing evictions and auction, is practical and class terms defend the social good housing. Away from populist, Falsified radical fanfare, our policy framework for the fight against auctions, is class protection of all social assets, part of which is the dwelling-house.

The cancellation of an auction in the county court, shifts the process 2 months after creating a first time, a temporary defense forefront of our class. Therefore, the presence of all of us in local courts is necessary. We must realize the need to pass from the defense of housing, to guarantee as good for all and all; the necessity of passing from defense to attack.

Starting from this position, and against all private and commercial exploitation of the dwelling, used but put the tool of the occupation as a form of militant recovery of social wealth, to ensure housing for all the oppressed of the world, homeless / s, immigrants / behavior shows, workers / behavior shows, the ftochodiavolous of our time.

as Anarchist Federation piece the exploited and oppressed, we fight with our class by any means. We will be there, the local courts, roads, neighborhoods, opposite to the judges, bank representatives and managers of investment funds, in physical confrontation if necessary with their uniformed protectors; with the poor, the unemployed, workers, the oppressed with the exploited against the state and capital.

Do not let anyone just opposite to bank gangs

Class counterattack, self-organization, solidarity
