(en) Greece, "Black & Red": THE STATE SAVES CAPITALISM [machine translation]

Date Sat, 16 May 2020 10:15:20 +0300

On the evening of May 5, in Agios Ioannis Square, in Agia Paraskevi, police forces attacked and tried to evacuate the square with the use of tear gas. Three days later, the police attacked Agios Georgios Square in Kypseli. Suddenly and without any warning, the lights in the square are turned off and MAT forces, using tear gas, flash and blind force, try to drive the people out of the square. We are only in the first days after the lifting of traffic bans, where the gradual opening of the market is being attempted, in order to restart the economy. Of course, this intention does not seem to be able to serve the needs of the social majority. ---- From the thousands of workers in undeclared work and the insecurity of the pandemic workers to the exhausting hours of supermarket and delivery workers, it seems that the weight of the pandemic and its consequences is being lifted by the social and class base. In addition, the thousands of refugees and migrants stacked in concentration camps, the retaliatory shifts and the government's refusal to decongest prisons and psychiatric hospitals show that life and health are not valuable to the state. On the contrary, the main purpose of public administration is to preserve its sovereignty and the political and economic interests of it and its elites.

The transition period we are going through now is just the first round of detection of the new reality in which the state is trying to impose the management features that will allow it to direct its policy the next day, which has as its core the coordinated attack. to the Plebeian masses, so that the crisis of the pandemic can be paid once again by the weak. So in the squares and in the repression of the people who frequent there, there is nothing but the pursuit of the state to control and intimidate the parts of the world that have always been against it and their concentration can potentially create rifts and problems.

The important point at stake in this confrontation with the state order of repression is the preservation of a path where mass social and class resistance will begin to walk immediately. In order for the social movement to mobilize the necessary forces for a victorious battle against the state and the bosses, while it makes it clear that it does not oppose the consequences of the pandemic together with the state, the police and the owners, it also has that level of consciousness. so that it can successfully implement social self-protection measures. Especially at this time, Observance by the world of self-defense is a necessary policy to include all people who are vulnerable to pandemics and even more disadvantaged due to the state's exclusion policies and the bosses' class aggression. We all want to fight together.

Virus protection, we must emphasize again, does not start with the state. On the contrary, the dissolution of the NSS and public health show the importance that the state attaches to people's lives. Doctors, nurses, cleaning and nutrition workers, those who have given and are fighting the virus are the real protagonists in defending society. And yet it is the state that wants to emerge as the exponent of social interests, simply because it is occasionally forced into an elementary suspension of economic activity, while at the same time shielding itself from repression in order to avoid its own questioning.

Finally, the bills passed in the middle of a pandemic show that the only issue for the government is to continue to enforce it and to make the exploitation gigantic. When they pave the way for capital to develop new areas of profitability, plundering nature, creating education for the few, while strengthening surveillance and discipline, removing basic demands on immigrants, as they did through nature bills, educational restructuring. , and the anti-refugee bill, those below must immediately take their place on the road to the struggle.

In the face of this gloomy reality reserved for all the oppressed by the powerful of this world, we propose solidarity, social mutual aid and the organization of all from below to claim what belongs to us. We continue to fight for the overthrow of the state and capitalism, for the creation of a society without exploitation and oppression, for the creation of a society of equality, solidarity, freedom and justice.
