(en) Greece, Solidarity with the revolted prisoners of Thebes and in the struggles of prisoners for protection against covid-19

Date Fri, 22 May 2020 22:36:07 +0300

Next to the invisible of this world ---- The only visible enemy is the state and capitalism ---- Solidarity meeting with prisoners, fugitives and persecuted militants ---- WITH THE INVISIBLE OF THIS WORLD ---- It has been only a few months since the outbreak of the pandemic and the world we knew seems to be changing from top to bottom, with the lower side experiencing the greatest and most violent devaluation, in order for the upper to emerge - and from this crisis - as much as it becomes more intact. It is clear that the repression of the capitalist crisis will be paid for again by the oppressed and the exploited. The escalation of the pandemic highlighted the structural contradictions of the capitalist world and its constitutional disregard for human life.
He highlighted the systematic devaluation of public health as an unnecessary expense for the state but also as an important area of ​​investment for private capital and the consequent displacement of the classically weak from one of the most important social needs. Thus, health, among many more, is becoming more and more a class privilege of the powerful, who can be treated in decent medical conditions. Let the rest be left to chance.

The biggest lie of this period is that we are all equal against this pandemic. No poor person has the same access to health services and medicines, the same opportunities for good nutrition and a strong immune system, the same opportunities for non-synchronization and minimal risk exposure with the rich. He is, after all, the poor man who, if not a prisoner or a detained immigrant, will be among those who were forced to work in medieval galleys or joined the armies of the unemployed who already existed. It is these low social strata that have been hit hardest by the corona pandemic worldwide, as shown by the thousands of dead in the industrial north of Italy, the mass graves of the poor in the United States and the spread of the virus to ghettoized African-Americans, their Latin Americans dead in cardboard boxes or burning the bodies of their relatives on the street.

The management of the pandemic proved in practice and in larger social parts that the defending the value of human life is a myth about the State and its costing varies depending on one's position in the socio-class pyramid.

Prisons, detention centers, detention centers for migrants and refugees have always been state-of-the-art warehouses and informal ghettos without substantial rights. With the outbreak of the pandemic, prisoners and migrants were the most exposed to the killer virus, as in conditions of overpopulation they were unable to self-protect their health and be transported directly to a hospital in case of illness. In any case, in the most difficult position of the social pyramid, accepting the harshest forms of exploitation and repression, with minimal to no reactionary possibilities and with limited voices of support and solidarity. At a time when the far-right management of the refugee by the government of N.D. is creating a climate of cannibalism.
