(en) [Greece] Ioannina Libertarian Trade Union: Fascism crushes on the street By ANA (gr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 10 Mar 2017 09:26:10 +0200

Text of the Ioannina Libertarian Trade Union Union on the repression of a demonstration held a few days ago in the city, on the occasion of the celebration of a nationalist event. ---- On 21 February , on the anniversary of the "liberation" of Ioannina, a concentration of anti-fascists took place in the city center, where several local figurines, members of the ruling party (Syriza) and neo-Nazi deputy Aurora Dourora Christos Pappas , To pay homage to a monument. The presence of all these in common reflects most clearly the ideological invention of the "national unity" they are building. It is an ideological invention directed against the interests of the working class, against the oppressed. The combative manifestation that has occurred expresses the anger of all those who do not consent to the presence of the fascists, those who do not submit, accepting the ideological invention of national liberation, those who experience the consequences of capitalism. Of course, the fear of Power to such actions is obvious. The Power contests only with violence, as it happened in this case.

Dozens of police officers, many in plain clothes, marched on demonstrators and detained six people, four of whom were detained. One of the detainees was seriously injured and taken to hospital two hours after his arrest! So anxious were the cops and so deep is their fear of the fighters that they did not take the shackles from the wounded person even when lying on the stretcher. In this city there are descendants of the collaborators of the Nazis, uniformed or not. They were the ones who celebrated the "liberation", they are the ones who defended the celebration of their feast, with or without collapsible ssetetes.

During the last time the attitude of the government (Syriza-ANEL) favored the fascists. They show the common presence of leftist and neo-Nazi deputies on the small island of Kastelorizo, the "parental committees" in Oreókastro, and the omnipresence of the police in Kavala. The intensification of repression in various places, with preventive detention, arrests and beatings, in response to any resistance, in combination with the coordinated propaganda of mass disinformation, constitute the new "leftist" field in which poverty is imposed. Is accompanied by the escalation of police violence.

If they think that in this way they will be able to stop the social movement, its conquests and its struggles, they are mistaken. We are willing to help you (understand your misconception). Because they will understand what it means to try to retain the antifascists, to protect the neo-Nazi scoria and the exploiters. They'll find out!

Smash the fascists and their protectors. Solidarity with the antifascists detained.
