(en) [Greece] Video: Greek anarchist talks about his fight against ISIS by Tasos Kokkinidis By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 13 Jul 2018 09:26:16 +0300


A Greek anarchist, a member of the Rouvikonas (Rubicon) group, who traveled to combat the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria, talks about his experience of war and the reasons that led to the fight. ---- The testimony of Nikos Mataragas is in the documentary Belkî Sibê (Maybe Tomorrow): A Journey Through War and Revolution , produced by Alexis Daloumis and Shadow Crew. ---- Mataragas, with a partially destroyed wall and a Kalashnikov (AK-47) at his side, talks about his experience in Ragga. ---- He says he had weapons training for a month before he started fighting. He also says that he spent seven months on the front lines, fighting alongside the armed group Battalion of International Freedom, participating in several fights, in which some of his colleagues died.

"It was a painful experience," he says, but that made him more determined to keep fighting ISIS.

The volunteer says that the communist past of his family made him defend minorities.

His childhood made him internationalist: "In our house we never had the flag of Greece," he says, however, denies that it is anti-Greece.

Over time, he decided to follow a different path from his parents and began to call himself an anarchist.

Mataragas says that although he is from Rouvikonas, the decision to go to fight in Syria was his.
