(en) Greece, liberta salonica: Quarantine calendars #4 [machine translation]

Date Fri, 1 May 2020 08:58:33 +0300


And the 6th week of quarantine went by without much surprise: zero measures to strengthen the public health system, new gifts to canal masters to "do their job well" (that is, to tell us exactly what the government wants to tell us), bills on key areas of economic or social life have passed through our government "overnight". Let's take a closer look at what the government has in store for us this week: ---- In a letter to Koulis on 21/4, hospital doctors report "tragic shortages in livelihoods and logistical infrastructure due to underfunding", while reacting to "commercialization and privatization of health" and stressing that the health system is incapable of combining control and treatment of patients with coronary heart disease with the treatment of patients with other diseases ". Non-pandemic departments are underperforming. Scheduled surgeries are being postponed and the "queues" have grown by at least 4 months. Answer from Koulis: none.
In addition, on Holy Week, doctors of DNA Dafni are informed by the administration's secretariat that they will be fired in the fall. These are auxiliary doctors, with a stipulated contract period of 3 years that has been reduced to 1 year. Yes, in the midst of a pandemic, doctors who are already working in the public health system see their already defined term being reduced! The administration attributed it to a "mistake"! Of course, this "mistake" has been promising for months that it will be corrected.
After the successful mobilizations in the context of the first nationwide day for health (7/4) and the attitude of the government towards the demands of the health authorities to strengthen the public health system in order to deal with the pandemic, which attitude can be summed up with the phrase " Zero in the quotient ", the Federation of Hospital Doctors of Greece calls for a second nationwide mobilization on 28/4. The demands concern the permanent appointment of auxiliary doctors without conditions and conditions, recruitment for the staffing of hospitals and Health Centers, measures and means of protection for the health and safety of health, integration in the Heavy and Unhealthy occupations. A protest will be held at the Ministry of Health at noon that day.
At the same time that there is no money for health, not even for a sample, there seems to be money with the sack to give a fourth gift to the canal masters in the middle of a pandemic. After the € 11 million for the "promotion of EODY spots" that even the stones know is free, after the "facilitation" with the licenses, totaling € 21 million, after the inclusion of the channels in the KAD with the companies that are affected by the mockery (!) that allowed various stations to give half an Easter gift to their employees, now the government has decided to give them... another € 9 million!!! And because they're probably tired of looking for excuses to donate money to the channels to ensure that they spend their TV time on tributes that convince us how uniquely well our wonderful government has done. this time, they just told us that they are giving it to us for the informative campaign for the coroner (!). Yes, yes... again!!!
It is not surprising what the employees of Ert3 complain about with their intervention on 21/4, then. The intervention was organized in order for the employees to protest against the imposition of a "peculiar censorship regime" by the administration. Specifically, their text states that the agenda is set by the "people in charge" and that "every different voice and criticism is either silenced or at best appears for a few seconds to have an alibi." Their demands are that the code of journalistic ethics be observed, that criticism of government policy be heard by social groups, that the voice of doctors and nurses be heard, and that the weak sections of society be addressed.
At the same time, we learn that ERT SA, the Athens Agency, the Hellenic Defense Systems, the Athens-Thessaloniki Urban Transport Organization, the Hellenic Hydrocarbon Management Company SA, the property management companies of the University Institutions are interested in publicity, which are characterized as companies. of case l of article 2 of Law 4548/2018 "and other companies of the wider public sector, are suddenly transferred, without any prior discussion or consultation, to the competent company management of t. of the Ministry of Development (ie under the control of the unprovoked A. Georgiadis). Given that the first act of the Koulis government was to take over the state media under the supervision of the Maximos Palace, making the government representative responsible for them,

In the same tactic "let's spend as much time as we can, as we have the world in its infancy", we saw the new multidisciplinary plan for education unfold on 22/4. It provides for the resumption of conduct in study titles, the theme bank, the replacement of sociology by Latin, the increase of the examined courses in the B and C high school, the institutionalization by presidential decree of the evaluation of teachers, the reduction of those admitted and transfers to universities and the establishment of foreign language departments with tuition fees !! In addition, the maximum age for enrollment in the daily EPAL is set, which is set at… 17 years! The only thing any of us could say about this unthinkable anachronistic bill is that ... obviously Mrs. Luke - sorry, This morning we wanted to say - he neglected negligence to also provide for the restoration of the apron in schools as well as the slap in the palm of the hand as an acceptable means of punishment. Because, by the way, it seems to fit a glove in the -about the catechism of the 70's- "aesthetics" that characterizes itself.
As a first reaction to the multi-bill, mass mobilizations will take place on 24/4 in Athens (Parliament) and Thessaloniki (Ministry of Macedonia Thrace) by teachers 'and students' unions.

At the same time, the government announces on 22/4 the reopening of the courts and, of course, is indifferent to the fact that the plenary session of the presidents of the Greek bar associations is against this decision. In particular, they said, the government "did not give sufficient explanations as to why the courts were reopened before any other economic activity began, why the specific procedures for granting mortgage notes were chosen and not some others". The answer is obvious if you look at the only procedures that will take place in the courts: consensual notes for the banks, research for the banks, registration of notes for the banks, registration of seizures for the banks!!!!
At the same time, the government estimates that in the midst of a pandemic with hundreds of thousands of workers unemployed or forced to suspend work or shift work by up to 50%, it is the right time to lift protection. of the first house on April 30!!! If the scenarios for extending the process until September or the end of the year are not confirmed, it is likely that our fellow citizens for whom "staying home" means "staying on the road" will increase dramatically.
There is little to be said about the government's management of the immigration issue. At least 5 points need to be mentioned this week:
On 04/22, 159 cases of coronary artery disease were found in the host structure in Kranidi, with a member of the staff being ill a little earlier. Despite the government's timely notification, no action has been taken, no care has been taken to remove or isolate vulnerable groups, and strengthening the requested Health Unit has never been implemented.
It is soon learned that some guests of the structure in order to make a living are issued to the locals. The result is a wave of hysteria. As always in these cases, the "peaceful local white family heads" who rape young women for a few € become the victims and the women who have literally nothing to sell beyond their own bodies the perpetrators. "Virus visit structure. Afghans broke out of the hotel and sold their bodies in the fields. How many people in the area have contracted the virus? " we read on the unprecedented vulgarity cover of Espresso, while distortions of language and logic such as "immigrant women were shopping in the area" instead of "local housewives, Orthodox Christians were exploited by sexually desperate women".
At the same time, the government decided to fire 16 Asylum Service workers working on islands and inland, because the long (sometimes even multi-year) wait for immigrants in our country before setting the date for their interview was probably not enough.! In response, the union of contract workers of the Asylum Service went on a hunger strike from April 21 until the decision to dismiss them was revoked.
In addition, it is worth mentioning one of the terms of the ministerial decision for registration in the "Register of Members of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs" ", (Government Gazette B 1382-14 / 4/2020) issued by the government. Article 11 states that a prerequisite for the employment of NGO workers in the field of immigration is that they have not been convicted "of any criminal offense (except those of the Road Traffic Code)". Specifically, it requires for each employee of all NGOs the following: "copy of criminal record, responsible statement of natural person that he has not been convicted with a final conviction for any criminal offense and responsible statement of natural person for acquittal, acquittal or dismissal their criminal prosecution ". This very racist decision on the one hand removes any notion of "equal access to work" for prisoners, but also any other person who has committed (not specifically an offense related to abuse, incest, racist violence, etc.), literally any offense, even misdemeanor (!!!) as well as all immigrants who may have been convicted of "smuggling" into the country! While the wording seems to mean that EVEN IF SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS WITHOUT EVEN THAT HAS BEEN CONSTRUCTED, it will not be able to work, which obviously removes the presumption of innocence, a basic -supposedly- pillar of civil "justice"!!! but also any other person who has committed (not specifically an offense related to abuse, incest, racist violence, etc.) but literally any offense, even of a misdemeanor nature (!!!) as well as all immigrants and immigrants they may have had convicted of "smuggling" into the country! While the wording seems to mean that EVEN IF SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS WITHOUT EVEN THAT HAS BEEN CONSTRUCTED, it will not be able to work, which obviously removes the presumption of innocence, a basic -supposedly- pillar of civil "justice"!!! but also any other person who has committed (not specifically an offense related to abuse, incest, racist violence, etc.) but literally any offense, even of a misdemeanor nature (!!!) as well as all immigrants and immigrants they may have had convicted of "smuggling" into the country! While the wording seems to mean that EVEN IF SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS WITHOUT EVEN THAT HAS BEEN CONSTRUCTED, it will not be able to work, which obviously removes the presumption of innocence, a basic -supposedly- pillar of civil "justice"!!!

Finally, a fire broke out on the afternoon of April 26 at the Reception and Identification Center in Vathi, Samos. The capacity of the KYT in Vathi is normally 648 people, while currently 6,869 people who live in tents or stumps without access to basic sanitary facilities are stacked in it. The first fire broke out at 19:30, while at 21:00 and 22:00 two more broke out. It should be noted here that with the fire already burning for an hour, at 20:30, the cops continued to forbid the immigrants to leave the camp, in order to get away from the fire, citing the restrictive measures imposed on the colonist! After tensions between the immigrants and the cops, and only after a second fire broke out in the camps, it was allowed to evacuate. Only the first of the 3 fires has destroyed the barracks in which 100 people were "housed". Both the extent of the disaster and the cause of the fire remain unknown.

On the front lines of "Skyl Elikikos" now, we saw with sadness the tele-training programs that had offered us generous laughter last week to withdraw, after the unprecedented caricature and the "yuha" that followed. Of course, the government did not feel the need to give any explanation for the incredible predator it tried to do, even when it was revealed that.... The people in charge of the platforms have a direct relationship with government officials, since they had set up the pre-election campaign of ND (!!!) or when the photos started to circulate with Koulis having suspiciously good relations with various KEK owners!
