(en) Greece, [Patra] Against the upcoming broomster at the expense of refugees and immigrants in Avex and Ladopoulos By APO (gr) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 3 Apr 2018 09:13:39 +0300

The devastating effects of war crises and the intensity of the plunder of the capitalist region are the disintegration of every concept of social life and existence in the Middle East where the war has swept the local populations. It is precisely these results that have resulted in millions of uprooted and desperate people attempting in any way to flee and enter Europe. ---- The Greek state, as the southeast border of the European Union, acts as a kind of tap through which European states regulate refugee and migratory flows in accordance with the needs of the bosses, but also with wider political considerations. Depending on political and economic relationships, they either use immigrants as an inexpensive and easily consumable workforce when they need it or they are trapped inside the state of entry - the Greek in the vast majority of cases - creating a warehouse of hundreds of thousands of people living in conditions of absolute impoverishment, are faced with the repressive state fury and the racist attitude of the fascist and partisan gangs. Several of them have been stacked for months in concentration camps without actually committing any particular offense except because they have no legal residence permit in the country.

The Port of Patras, as a gateway to the "capitalist paradise" of the West, has been for decades a permanent point of reference and concentration for immigrants and refugees looking for a better future. For a long time, between the half-broken dwarves and the rusty machinery of the abandoned factories in the southern coastal zone (Avex, Lapopoulos, Piraiki-Patraiki) opposite the new harbor, several hundreds of people try to organize their everyday life while waiting for the opportunity to pass on to a ship heading for the capitalist West.

In this everyday life, immigrants have to face a warfare that is artificially cultivated by a front of local and central actors who have been forced to exterminate them. The police, the media, the Coast Guard and the Port Authority, having their own aspirations to exploit the area across the new harbor and not seeing the presence of the immigrants there, have a good time, have begun an ever- increasing expulsion strategy. Daily chases, beatings and torture, humiliation and humiliation, "broom" operations, extensive or not, are the reality of the immigrants living in the area. Characteristically, we report the recent serious 14-year-old migrator-knife injury by port workers in early March.

At the same time, today's political governance, as it has moved on to the cheap trade of hope to continue to impose the plundering policies of the social base, like all previous governments, has been driven precisely by the same anti-immigration policy exercise, in cooperation with the international mechanisms (NATO, frontex, EU). Having ramped concentration camps for refugees and immigrants everywhere in Greece, he continues to stack them there, even attempting to reverse the reality by propagating the appropriateness of living conditions in places where they are subjected to imprisonment, repression, humiliation of their dignity.

Within this political context, and in full harmony with the anti-immigration climate, the local media, the media, the financial interests of OLPA SA are gradually re-emerging in the city. and the fascist gangs, a series of "Southern Communist Party Committees" call for public concentration against the presence of migrants in the southern coastal zone. A concentration that has clear racist and xenophobic motivations. They thus pave the way for a "broom" at the expense of refugees and immigrants to be implemented in the immediate aftermath of the - already announced by the central government - business, further promoting the action of fascist gangs and repressive mechanisms.

For our part, as anarchists, we stand against the criminalization of people and the prohibition of their free movement. We do not recognize in any state the right to impose all sorts of boundaries and segregation between people on the basis of gender, race, origin, religion, and so on. Our response to the state and the bosses must be the collectiveisation of our resistances, the realization of our common position - locals and immigrants - mutual aid and mutual respect, without fake divisions (nation-race, legitimate-illegal).

We will stand together with migrants and refugees against anyone who attempts to move against them and dry up their racist poison. Against anyone who tries to set up a nationalist pogrom on the occasion of the encroachment of immigrants in the region. Together with the immigrants, we will fight for a life of dignity, and we will not leave the earth in every enemy of freedom. The everyday life of migrants and refugees will continue unhindered at ABEX, Ladopoulos and wherever they wish.

Against the attempt to fragment the oppressed, we must respond with class solidarity. To create class and social relations between natives and immigrants and to develop a collective struggle against our daily dynasties ... let's break the social cannibalism and the mechanisms that give birth to it ... for a world of equality, solidarity and freedom.
