(en) Greece, anarchist-federation: Solidarity with linksunten.indymedia.org (gr) [machine translation]

It seems that nothing is accidental in the last period in Europe. The black conference in Estonia, the historic washing machine of the most aggressive form of capitalist history in history, a conference in which Germany participated, appears to be part of a much wider agenda. ---- The demotivation of the German repressive machine during the protests for the G20 meeting in Hamburg was probably the drop that overflowed the glass for the ambitious imperialism that is leading the EU economically. Radicals from all over the world who gathered in the German city gave a a bitter lesson in the greatness of repression. They gave a warning: the world of the fight is here, fighting and intransigent, lifting the glove to the dystopian plans of the new totalitarianism. It is not the national states that raise their heads, but forces directly from the social base of all states. Minority votes for the time, but minorities that do not intend to remain such.

The new capitalist totalitarianism responded. And he did what he always does when he finds an opponent: without any shame, he gets rid of the mantle of democracy. Urban fairy tales about freedom of speech, the myth of "open society," are nothing more than propaganda speeches that are projected only when they have no danger to power. Now they have it.
Linksunten.indymedia.org, an information and radical critique node, accepted the German state's assault. The site was closed for the time being, those who functioned it were terrored, even the media logo was forbidden.

At the same time, the German state totally "accidentally" launches new stories from the time of the armed RAF organization 40 years ago. The narrative of "extremist risk from the left" is shaped by specific repressive acts and attempts to be legalized by the resentment of the terrorism of the 1970s. No prototype, the extreme right-wing infection is the same whether it speaks German or Estonian or Greek. Not at all, the AFD fascists in Germany welcomed the closing of the media. Not at all, various extreme right-wing trash throughout Europe (of course in Greece) did the same. The theory of the two extremes was also a lie. The regime, from social democracy to the Nazis, forms its front. The right joins as the American Nazis demand in Charlottesille.

The battle to keep silent linksunten.indymedia.org continues and nothing has yet been decided. The fight for freedom of speech, inside and outside the Internet, is coming to a new stage. The oppressed must realize that in fact we have no right in bourgeois society. Everything is conditional upon whether state and capital feel confident of their absolute sovereignty. The only rights we have are the ones we win with our punches. The sooner we understand it, the better our position will be in the battles with the new totalitarianism that comes.
