Date Tue, 27 Nov 2018 08:14:29 +0200


Anarchist women's intervention at the Concert Hall of the Grand Theater at the Concert Hall Gender Equality to Eradicate Gender Violence ---- Today, November 22, 20 comrades, we performed an intervention at the Concert Hall, the concert organized by the General Secretariat for Gender Equality of the Ministry of the Interior, in view of the global day to eradicate violence against women. ---- Around 20.30, when the organizer's representative began to preface the event, we interrupted her speech by shouting slogans against police violence and, in general, the violence of the state at the expense of the struggling women, we opened ourselves from the banner of the balcony that wrote " Gender violence is a regime as long as there is state and capitalism - Trial of torture police officers in anti-fascist mopeds: 29/11 ", we threw tits and distributed texts in the packed room.

The speaker unsuccessfully tried to ignore the intervention by continuing to speak from the microphone until it was forced to stop because of the slogans that echoed everywhere, while the first positions were obsessed with the President of Parliament N. Voutsis, Interior Minister A. Haritsis and others deputies of the government rally. By finishing the intervention, we left out with shouting slogans.

Anarchist comrades against patriarchy

Here is the text that was shared:

25 November 1960: Three anti-dictatorial fighters, sisters Patria, Minerva and Maria Teresa Mirabal are murdered by men of the troops of the dictator Trojigio in San Domenico. Thirty-one years later, Nov. 25 is established as a global day of eradicating violence against women.

Gender violence is a regime as long as there is state and capitalism

There is no more hypocrisy than the institutions themselves (such as the General Secretariat for Gender Equality of the Ministry of the Interior) of a system that imposes it to talk about the eradication of gender violence : Through their laws and mechanisms - police, courts, prisons, class exploitation, encroachment of migrant women and refugees in camps.

There is nothing more outrageous than the representatives of a government that is responsible for the raging attack on the protesters and demonstrators of the anarchist blocks in the course of the Polytechnic, with the throwing of chemical, wild beatings and arrests, as well as for the use of aura and police in the Exarchia area. And all this, with the political chiefs of the police (Gerovasilis and Papakosta), to congratulate the uniformed killers "for the self-restraint they have shown".

How can one talk about violence against women by stating that the struggles are confronted with state repression, police brutality or its threat, with boss terrorism? Faced with violence which always has extra sexist sign, aiming to humiliate, punish and conformity women and as such they dared to rebel, to challenge patriarchal stereotypes and to stand up against injustice? How can you obscure that state violence against struggling women is part of systemic violence that aims at social enslavement and targets all those who struggle to overthrow it?

How can one talk about this violence by stating that it is not individual incidents but a constituent element of a patriarchal, power and capitalist system organized to impose inequality and freedom? A system that, in its times of crisis, to stay unscathed, invests even more in social cannibalism, promoting the violence of the powerful against the "weak" on the basis of the class, gendered and racist hierarchy. This is an operation which results in the reproduction of authoritarian violence on the social body, apochalinosi social ekfasismou with the blessings of law and order, as happened with the murder of Jacques Kostopoulos / Zackie Oh, the tension and the increase of gender discrimination and of the abuse of women.

How do the representatives of the system who perpetuate and legitimize it speak about this violence?

Police and institutional violence

"You are an unjust service. And because your role is thin, the truth is that they often attack you without deserving it "

Olga Gerovasilis, addressed to MAT, 8/11/2018

Thousands of women daily deny the role of the victim, stand solidly side by side, build through the individual and collective uprising the prospect of a world of true equality and freedom. Through participation in social and class struggles, strikes and demonstrations, anti-fascist mobilizations and actions, squats, collectives, assemblies, every expression of questioning the sovereign, what is expressed is not that we are fighters even though we are women - but, on the contrary, because we are women. Because to live, it took our first steps to confront the roles we were expecting. We are strong because we are the fruit of this daily conflict. And we are solidarity because not only common oppression, but also resistance, unites us.

The repression is being used to crush this insurrection to stifle the prospect of true emancipation and to impose fear and discipline as it is employed against every attempt to overthrow the dominant barbarity. Women struggling are also faced with sexist practices, beatings, insults and gender-based threats. Practices of security forces that are assumed or even "self-evident", either in the context of the "lawful violence" of the regime against all those who resist or because the devaluation of women is considered to be guaranteed. Practices that are taboo even for organizations that denounce other forms of gender violence * practices that are systematically hidden and tacitly welcomed by the authorities,

We are not going to be silent!

On November 29th, Delta police officers are being tried to torture at the expense of the 15 arrested anti-fascist mopeds in the neighborhoods of Athens in 2012, as a sign of solidarity with immigrants and anti-Nazi partisan gangs. The comrades and comrades who were arrested were then brutally hit on the street and then for hours in Safety, where the fascist uniforms faded over cigarettes and threatened them in any way, including by photographing them irregularly and stating that their data would be handed over in Golden Dawn (to those who assassinated Paulos Fissa a few months later, under the guise of other police officers). Among them, the comrades gathered the sexist torture of the torturers, ridiculed and accepted physical violence.

In this trial, standing against their torturers, putting a barrier to silence and legitimizing state violence, we will again be on their side as struggling as anarchists and women.

Because the patriarchal violence of the state and the bosses is not a deviation or a remnant of the past, as the rulers claim. It is present in the redundancies of pregnant women, in the woes of hunger, in permanent job insecurity, in sexual harassment in workplaces. It is present in the form of repression in demonstrations, such as in the course of the Polytechnic , with the beatings, arrests and fights of fighters. It is present at the lynching of the seropositive, gay activist Zak Kostopoulos / Zackie Oh! with the help of ATT police officers. Omonoia. Demonization, exclusion, marginalization of the poor, racist discrimination at the expense of LOCKS people. It is present in concentration camps for refugees, immigrants and migrant women, the rape of an elderly refugee in Moria , the three immigrants who were recently murdered on the banks of the Evros, the countless women, children and men drowning in the Aegean. He is present in the courts sentencing the 22-year-old PA . years in prison because they resisted the aspiring rapper and acquitted circuits trafficking , as in the recent case of the business owner "Horiatiko" , or in the case of the Xanthi rapists. State violence is present in the condemnation of a 53-year-old woman who has been sentenced to ten years' imprisonment simply because she has falsified the school leaving certificate in order to be able to survive as a cleaning lady . She is present in the same prisons found by Katerina Gulioni , fighting for the elimination of degrading vaginal checks. It is present in the policy of ministers and government agencies responsible for the confession and confinement of 27 seropositive women , leading, among other things, to the suicide of one of them. And the list is not finished ...

The assumption of female emancipation will either be a part of the wider struggle for social liberation, or it will be assimilated by patriarchy, the state, and capitalism as a way of embellishing them

The climbing of women in positions of power (with the most up-to-date examples of the Minister of Labor Achitsoglou, as well as the Minister and Secretary of State for Public Order Gerovassilis and Papakostas - who even reintroduced the doctrine of zero tolerance towards the contestants) is the sad result the crap and the assimilation effort from the top of the women's struggles. At the same time, it is a failing means of landscaping the bankrupt power system which, in its sepulchres, is attacking even more brutality in those who struggle and confronts the slaves of society as surplus and exterminating populations.

Behind the legendary myths, which distort the assumption of female emancipation, presenting it as a demand for equality in the administration of power or the pursuit of privileges within a exploitative regime, lies the story of bloody, militant feminine struggles from below. We are many and we come from afar. We are unemployed, workers, students, mothers. We are anarchists, anti-fascists, insurgents. We were born from the Communists of the French Commune, from the 19th century US immigration crashers, from the resistance of indigenous women to the conquerors, from the Mujeres Libres of the Spanish Revolution. Our grandmothers took the weapons against fascists and tarmacs, and they grew us with stories of dignity and exile. Our mothers were those who stood in front of the junta, they wrote for us slogans on the walls and sang in cells. Our sisters are Zapatista in the mountains of Chiapas, rebelled in Kurdistan, anarchists and communists in Turkey, fly stones and rush out with bare hands to soldiers in Palestine. They are black in America, native Tupus in Chile and Argentina. All over the world they face governments, armies and police. Together we meet them in a raised fist and a look of solidarity, which reinforces our determination to destroy every human form of oppression of man by man, to build together a world of equality, solidarity and freedom.
