(en) Greece, Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki: ANTIFASISTIC CONCENTRATION MONDAY 30/10 (gr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 30 Oct 2017 09:12:13 +0200

Last week, the fascist city of the city surrounded its rotten flesh in our city. This time the occasion was the performance "The Time of the Devil", which was played at the Aristotle Theater. Half a handful of fascists with Greek flags mingled with Christian fundamentalists with the flags of the Byzantine Empire, candles and sanctuaries were found outside the theater to protest the "blasphemy," leaving all the other people living in this city to admire the stupidity their. On Monday, 30/10, the same fascist crowd calls for protest for the show "Ecclesiastes", played at the Avlea Theater. ---- In this city, we saw the various fascists trying to appear on the road with various occasions. But we, as anti-fascists and anti-fascists, see the fascism as the long hand of capital, irrespective of the causes that the fascists invoke in order to get out of their hole and assemble various racists, Greek-believers and religious. And that is why we are not separating our struggle against the fascism from it to capitalism. Fascism is the intensification of the capitalist condition of the exception. Our fascism wants slaves of the bosses. Fascism intensifies the unlawfulness and militarization of labor by setting conditions for extermination in the "overwhelming" workforce.

Understanding the central role occupied by capital-labor opposition as the relationship / opposition from which the present (sometimes historically concrete) form of organization of all social relations (capitalist social formation) is produced and, at the same time, being part of the working class , we can only approach and interpret every relationship of power within the capitalist society from a paradoxical, classical point of view. This means, first of all, that we are trying to identify and highlight its special capitalist form, the way in which the empowering relationship takes class status and serves the interests of capital. It is a constant trend and a vital need of capital to organize all social relations in the direction of (re) production and circulation of value.

Fascism was employed in the absolute form of the prevailing regime at a time when capitalism was experiencing the deepest crisis and at the same time faced with the danger of a generalized proletarian revolution. Let us not laugh: if capitalism needs it again, he knows he always has his arrow in his quiver. Today he needs it as a tool that acts within bourgeois democracy: to attack trade unionists, anti-fascists, anarchists, immigrants, resistance areas, hangouts, occupations. Tomorrow again we can see this one handful of ridiculous becoming part of the governmental power. We also do not forget how quickly entire Asian countries were dragged into the most obscure regimes because it brought about sovereignty.

Capitalism needs fascism for a number of reasons: as a means of disciplining the most underestimated parts of our class (nowadays immigrants and migrants in particular) as a means of dividing the order (on legal and unpaid workers, lgbtqia + and straight, women and men, etc.) and as a means of increasing or reducing labor supply in production.

Racism - a basic pillar of fascism - is necessary among many other relations of oppression that "offer" the same service to capital, the division of the working class and the oppressed, and the fragmentation of its resistances. Discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, age, race, and any other dividing line (straight / lgbtqia +, legal worker / paperless, female / male, white / black, young / are cultivated by sovereignty diligently and reproduced, both material (wage differences, exclusion of categories from the labor market, etc.) and ideologically. Capitalism uses the power relations ("takes over" from older systems, creates, restructures, intensifies them)

Racism is also necessary (again among other forms of discrimination) in order to remove unnecessary labor from production. It is no coincidence that the Nazi and fascist regimes that emerged in Europe at the beginning of the last century first made use of racism and patriarchy to reduce the supply of working hands. The need to withdraw huge parts of the working class from production was clear: racism cared for mismanage with Jews and Roma and sexism with women. Thus, suddenly, with large parts of our class not being measured in the ranks of the unemployed, the "national-socialist dream" with the allowances, the state-paid holidays and the supposed comforts of the German working class became a reality: for those who naturally exited.

Fascism has been the embodiment of the absolute form of all power relations: racism, nationalism, chauvinism, misogynyism, homophobia, militarism ...

For us, fascism is the birth of this world of oppression, exploitation and exclusion. That is why it is treated in class terms, upsetting the system that rears it and which it always serves.

We will not even go into the process of telling the obvious about artistic freedom or the demagogic-despotic role of the obscurantism church (which we have altogether on the whole). We will only say that the air they took last week, we have to cut them off. We will not leave our city to the fascists and the dark men, as few as they are, how ridiculous they are.
