(en) Greece, Nationwide Call Against Destruction of Aggregates and "Green Development" by Jellyfish APO [machine translation]

Date Tue, 8 Oct 2019 10:33:40 +0300

On Saturday October 12, 2019, we invite initiatives, assemblies, colleges, resistance movements and militants: ---- * In Concentration - march on Freedom Square of Karditsa (central) at 11.00 am ---- aimed at - as far as possible - highlighting the giant catastrophe planned in the greater Agrafa area, with a vehicle for "green" development and the installation of wind turbines. Agrafa is a vast landscape of natural and wild beauty, a "monument" of struggle, a place where thousands of people fought for freedom. ---- * At a meeting of movements and an open assembly, at Pausilipos Refinery about looting and the destruction of nature by state, capital and EU governments. ---- We do not perceive the struggles that everyone in his region has as "local problems". We perceive them as the struggles of a global movement, which fights against growth, which is destroying lives and the environment in today's system, to fuel the profitability of the few, against the social needs of the majority.

The threatening destruction of the Agrafa, too, is part of the overall attack on nature, and therefore on society. The ND government, with its so-called development policy, imposes a number of measures. Unconditional and with lightning procedures, it will provide opportunities for any kind of overruns of building conditions and controls, to protect nature and cultural heritage. It subsidizes "investors" for crime against nature, for the benefit of capital and to the detriment of workers, public property and the environment.

From Euboea, Skouries, Epirus, Ionian, Crete to Volos and Acheloos we can see that all kinds of investors, taking all the necessary facilities, plunder nature with the sole purpose of profit.

However, this attack has found the resistance of the movements against the pillaging of public space. People who defend their own lives, their history and their dignity through the defense of nature. Against the privatization of water, seashore, the destruction of forests, the pollution of the air and the seas, the vast dumps.
Only our struggles, our resistances and their connection can put a stop to the engines of "development" and the catastrophic - for nature and society - state and capital projects.

Through the event we seek to link these resistances together so that we can all coordinate, discuss, exchange experiences to give better terms to the battles to come.

We seek the confrontation and finally the blocking of all destructive processes. We know that we have everything set against us, by the government and SYRIZA, by investors and the EU, by state institutions, by local actors in municipalities and regions.

The "growth" they are preparing us is destroying our environment and our lives. It is our duty to choose the path of resistance and rupture, of coordination, of joint actions, of mass and collective struggle.
