Struggle against nationalism, intolerance and war ... against states, bosses and their mechanisms ---- Solidarity with the entire deniers of the army tried in the Ruf's Military Court ---- Within the next period, four total deniers of conscription are being tried for their choice not to be in the ranks of the Greek army. Konstantinos Gounitsiotis, Stratos Moses, Pavlos Christopoulos and Babis Tsilianidis are being tried on Feb. 6 and 18 and on 13/3 on Rouf's army. ---- The total deniers of the army went into practice of insubordination, driven by political motives against the army, an institution that always served and secured the interests of the bosses and their respective powers, against the interests of the exploited and oppressed of this society. Against an institution which, in the interior, contributes to the cronyism of the ideals of the nation-state, to the insinuation of nationalistic hatred, to the expansion of militarism in the social field, and which is always in the reserve for suppressing class and social demands, for the repression of social uprisings . Against a mechanism that abroad actively contributes to the destruction of areas of the capitalist region with the aim of looting natural resources and exploiting the local populations as the powerful states of the world are in the best of interest. A mechanism that has in the past exterminated foreign and aliens' populations to widen state sovereignty and serve the interests of capital.

For this denial, the total deniers of the armed forces are punished with a double and especially revenge mechanism of repression. In addition to criminal prosecutions and military courts, often repeated as the "crime" of denial of office is permanent, they are accepted and hardened by the imposition of fines of 6,000 euros (and in many cases repeated). The seizures of accounts and other assets and the state of economic asphyxia that they create are consequential. There is also a lack of pressures by phone calls for receipt of classification papers, solicitations by military recruits to "settle" military obligations, telephone calls at workplaces, or even cops visits to comrades' homes and self-capturing arrests.

We are in a period when nationalism, intolerance, racism and fascism have been revived in society. The cause was the Macedonian issue and the rallies that took place all over Greece and gave the opportunity to all kinds of warlike, conservative, nationalistic and fascist groups to come out of the margins and to claim public space. Within this treaty, the left-wing government is attempting to present the Prespa agreement " as a model for peaceful resolution of disputes and promoting peace in the region ". But we are well aware that the Prespa agreement is a dictated agreement to achieve the enlargement of the EU and NATO and to strengthen its position in the Balkans towards Russia. The EU and NATO are two supranational mechanisms of economic and military enforcement. Greece, as a member of these two mechanisms (with any political manager, whether in the right or left), is involved in their planning and pursuits, has linked its interests with those of the Western bloc and takes an active part in the antagonisms with other blocks power. At the same time that it hastened to facilitate the expansion of the alliance, it transforms the site into a large NATO and American base camp.In this direction it strengthens the existing US-NATO military bases (Souda, Araxos) or installs new ones. Alexandroupolis converted into port for NATO troops are in the Balkans, while in Larissa from May 2018 has been transferred to a unit of unmanned aircraft (type «MQ -9 Reaper» ) of US military forces . At the same time, the Greek state signs an agreement with Turkey on the prevention of immigration and repatriation, while FRONTEX frigates continue to hunt migrants at the sea border and in collaboration with the Navy to turn the Aegean into an immense cemetery.

Defining the situation with regard to the "Macedonian issue" is the pursuit of both the Greek capital for further expansion to the neighboring country and the Greek state for the protection and promotion of its economic interests and the hegemony in the wider Balkan region but also the South-East Mediterranean. The entire rhetoric of the ruling Left is on the restoration of the Greek state as a dominant force in the Balkans, its restoration to the local-international order of things in the southeastern Mediterranean, as a player again after the "adventure" of the memorandums. The left-wing government openly states that Turkey recognizes Turkey as a foe and a threat at stake this time, the profits from the exploitation of the hydrocarbons of the EEZs of Cyprus and the south-eastern Mediterranean in general. Allied military junctions and apartheid states (Egypt-Israel) are therefore concluded at the altar, and declarations of readiness are made to undertake any military action to defend the profits of the powerful. Gains for the capital AND military spending, economic exploitation and war for the exploited. And all this while the attack on the exploited and oppressed parts of society continues, completing and consolidating the policies of the last few years. of the national interest, military alliances with junts and apartheid states (Egypt-Israel) are concluded, and declarations of readiness are made to undertake any military action to defend the profits of the powerful. Gains for the capital AND military spending, economic exploitation and war for the exploited. And all this while the attack on the exploited and oppressed parts of society continues, completing and consolidating the policies of the last few years. of the national interest, military alliances with junts and apartheid states (Egypt-Israel) are concluded, and declarations of readiness are made to undertake any military action to defend the profits of the powerful.

And all this while the attack on the exploited and oppressed parts of society continues, completing and consolidating the policies of the last few years.

During this juncture of nationalist excitement and with the drums of war, the whole deniers of the army echo their opposition to their states and armies and refuse to serve their oppressors. Therefore they can only find us solidarity.

We are not prepared to follow state and bourgeois voices for national unity and for submission and involvement in its murderous mechanisms. We are well aware of our class and social position to join with our exploiters and oppressors. We will not serve state and boss plans.

Against the massacre among the oppressed and exploited who happened to be born on the other side of the border, oppose the common struggle against homelands, religions, states, and all fictional divisions. The only war in which we are prepared to participate is against oppression and exploitation, to overthrow state and capitalist barbarism.

To set up mounds against nationalism, fascism, intolerance and war.

To fight for a world without frontiers, states and wars. Without patriarchy and power.

To fight for social revolution and social liberation, for anarchy and communism.

Solidarity with the entire deniers of the army tried in the Ruf's Military Court
