(en) Greece, APO: We are protesting on Saturday, May 23, from Exarcheion Square against the police occupation [machine translation]

Date Tue, 26 May 2020 09:19:58 +0300

EVERYONE AND EVERYONE ON THE ROAD - EVERYONE AND EVERYONE IN THE SQUARE OUTSIDE THE EXCLUSIVE BATCHES AND MAFIES ---- Since August 2019, strong police forces have invaded and settled permanently in Exarchia as an occupying army. Every day, dozens of MAT, OPKE and DELTA machines parade in the streets, shoot in the corners, sit at the entrances of apartment buildings, trying to spread fear and terrorism in the neighborhood. All those who live, work, fight, or are patrons of the Exarchates move within a suffocating police cordon and under constant surveillance and surveillance by hundreds of uniformed and armed government thugs, who further harass residents, shout sexually threatening women and Nazi slogans to refugees and immigrants show power to youth and youth.
Since then, the state has evacuated militant squatters, self-organized refugee and migrant housing structures, drowned chemical resistance structures, forcibly removed hundreds of refugees and migrants, women, men and children, and imprisoned them. in concentration camps.

At dawn on Monday, May 18, the state launched another violent evacuation of refugees on Themistocleous Street."Dozens of people, mostly refugee children, have lost their homes and the little protection they have found. They were transported in cages to Petrou Ralli and then left nowhere to be left homeless and distressed, without having to go anywhere. They evacuate a refugee camp on the grounds that living conditions were not adequate (compared to what? With Moria, where people live in tents without access to sanitation?) to end up in Exarcheion Square a few meters from the occupied occupation " . Occupation of a Shelter for Refugees / Immigrants Notara 26

It was preceded on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, by the exclusion of the Polytechnic, the ban on holding open cinematic assemblies and the bringing in of at least 12 people from the Polytechnic and the adjacent streets. Meanwhile, on Saturday, May 16, strong police forces attempted to obstruct the operation of the planned self-organized crowd in Exarcheion Square.

All of these events are expressions of state planning for the subjugation of a neighborhood with a rich history of resistance, a neighborhood symbol at the international level for the struggles against power, exploitation and oppression.

The state and its repressive army invaded Exarcheia under the orchestrated and hysterical cries of the media propaganda. for the imposition of the doctrine of "law and order" and under the pretext of drug trafficking and the gigantism of the drug lord of the square. A treaty formulated methodically by the previous political administration and under the full supervision of the state mechanisms, in order to be a vehicle for the social legitimization of the overwhelming police intervention that followed - where it did nothing but spectacular operations against drug addicts - and clearly aimed at the crackdown. of militants and refugees, the expulsion of refugees and migrants and the transformation of the region from a field of challenge and a base of struggle, into a zone of high capitalist profit let. At the same time, through the ideological attack that is systematically promoted by the media spokespersons of the Ministry. Public Order seeks to socially consolidate an "Exemption Regime" for both anarchists and anarchists and many other base fighters and refugees, as well as for refugees and immigrants in order to socially justify police violence against them. To re-expand the limits of the murderous action of the security forces beyond where they were set up with the December uprising.

Under conditions of capitalist crisis and pandemic, the state is developing a comprehensive strategy of preventive counter-insurgency in the face of the risk of uncontrolled social upheavals. In this context, the violent attacks of the police are included, causing very serious injuries to those who meet in the squares, in Agia Paraskevi, in Kypseli, in Pagrati, in Ano Poli, in order to hit any possibility of appropriation of public space and social challenge. These attacks are a continuation of the police operations in Exarchia in order to suffocate every part of the city.

In the gloomy reality that is being erased for those from below this world, let us not succumb to fear and cannibalism. To continue the fight against the state and capitalist system that imposes poverty, misery and death. To fight for a society that protects the vulnerable, for a world of equality, solidarity and freedom.




We are protesting on Saturday, May 23, from Exarcheion Square against the police occupation, taking all the necessary self-protection measures.

Assembly for the Re-leasing of the Exarchates
