(en) [Greece] Zero tolerance for extreme violence practices. Eject the "axes" out of the movement By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 11 Jun 2017 13:47:12 +0300

The following text belongs to the Rocinante Anarcho-Syndicalist Initiative and was published on its website on the reason for an alleged aggression by a group on the day of the student elections at the University of Athens. ---- On Wednesday, May 24, 2017, from morning to the end of the afternoon, student elections were held in most of the country's universities. In the previous days, interventions and mobilizations were carried out, and material was distributed against the elections, as part of an anti-electoral campaign carried out by groups and libertarian collectives. ---- In sharp contrast to this political position, attacks on various universities took place on Wednesday , May 24 . It was particularly striking the brutality of a group of people who tried to approach the Faculty of Chemistry during the electoral process. With cans of smoke, sticks, and even an ax! The members of the student associations, responsible for protecting the elections, were the ones who at first repelled the agoras and later the police, using tear gas and blocking the faculty for a long time.

Violent assaults, in which the purpose is to approximate the place where the students went to vote, are in no case part of a process of the movement against the elections, the delegation and the boards of directors. On the contrary, they are a product of the deeply authoritarian principles of antagonism, domination and the imposition of power. That is, one of the principles that are the pillar of the capitalist system and the hierarchical structure of society. They are a few things that the State and Capital constantly try to sow among the oppressed, in every university, in every workplace, and ultimately in every social field.

Violence is nothing more than a means of confrontation, so it must be a tool in the hands of the libertarian movement, worker and student, only used against the State and Capital. In all other cases, violence is an antisocial attitude, in which the objective is the imposition of something for power and discrimination among the exploited. We believe that any tendency to fetishization is extremely harmful to the case of social liberation. Lastly, it is not eacut; Only the attitude of this group that affects us. It is also your notion against the movement. It is the logic that can appear as a punisher, seeking "partisan dogs" or other demons, sowing terror everywhere, being self-declared a "pure race" that must impose order against the bureaucracy of student associations, Elections, etc.

The abolition of elections, the change in the form of student associations, and the horizontality of collective processes, far from delegation, are questions of the students and not of a group of aggressors (bullies). The same student movement is what will determine what characteristics and structures you want to have. For this reason, prohibitions, whether from the state and the bosses, or from an antisocial group, must be faced by all collectivities whose objective is the liberating transformation of society for the benefit of the oppressed.
