We call upon the anarchist, libertarian and, in general, revolutionary collectivities to create events that conflict with NATO's sovereignty, by defining our fate by NATO's imperatives and the counterparts of the great powers and their local government officials. ---- We have come to a time when political developments in the eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans are running rapidly. The transnational issues that arise are not just a game of capitalists to throw us ashes in our eyes - a fact that is good enough to overcome key issues in the everyday social / class war - but also a result of the historical controversy that exists between the national elites for control and exploitation of larger areas, accompanied by the "irredentist great idea" of every nationalism, Greek, Turkish, Bulgarian, Slav-Macedonian, Albanian ...

War clouds thicken in the eastern Mediterranean. From Syria and northern Africa to the Balkans, warfare and increasing military mobilization have created a very dangerous landscape for new, much wider, entanglements.

The the DAESH and areas controlled by kourdoaravikes militias (SDF, YPG-YPJ) dissolution of Syria in areas controlled by the Assad regime, the Islamic pro-Turkish rebel forces (FSA - «Free Syrian Army", etc.), has led to millions of people, besides the daily casualties of civilians. The US, Russia and Turkey are working for their own interests to control areas to serve their geopolitical and strategic interests by sending troops to the region. In this complex situation, the only certainty is that the prevalence of interests of major global (US, Russia) or regional (Turkey) forces will not only lead to the further dissolution of all social unity and strengthening of religious fundamentalism.

When you are surrounded by the DAESH Jihadists in Kobani or the Turkish Army and Syros's collaborators (the so-called "Free Syrian Army"), then you have only to choose to receive the military hand of help if you are spread by a great superpower , knowing that at some point this hand can be retreated.

The complex scene may not be so bloody but similarly complex in the case of the Balkans. NATO's heartbearing to immediately resolve the nomenclature that has arisen by re-establishing the Macedonian issue unlocks a series of societal reactions in the states involved.

As in the historical place of Asia Minor, for centuries, Greeks, Turks, Armenians, etc., lived in the historical area of Cyprus, living as Greeks and Turks as in the historical area of Epirus, for centuries, Greeks and Albanians live as in the historical area Thrace, Greeks, Turks, Pomaks, etc. have been living for centuries and Greeks, Slavs, Bulgarians, Albanians and others have lived in the historical site of Macedonia. No such geographic region belongs to a single ethnic group historically, however much the "great national idea" claims the monopoly in it.

The NATO imperative for a direct expansion of its presence in the region with the accession of FYROM, in the context of NATO's disagreement with Russia and its allies, is the one that re-establishes the Macedonian issue not to bridle the peoples of the region but to serve his or her own interests, disregarding any negative impact on the societies of this wider region.

At the same time, the "allies in NATO" Greece and Turkey take out their ships and other ships in the Aegean as well as the aircrafts on top of it in a dangerous crusade of power demonstration. At the same time, the Cypriot issue, which is again in the forefront, remains an open plague that, as long as it is under the transcendence of transnational antagonisms and nationalisms, and not on the basis of international solidarity and co-operation, respecting the history and self- , is another active flammable zone.

The Macedonian issue, the Cypriot issue and the Greek-Turkish tension in the Aegean are only three manifestations of a wider set that we must break free from Nato's sovereignty and nationalist delusions. In the same region, the shift of the Kurdish movement towards the democratic confederation, which raised the question of democracy, ecology and gender equality in the historical region of Mesopotamia, gave a new promising dimension. At a similar wavelength, the ideas of Rigas Feraios for a Balkan Federation of all peoples and the federalist proposals of the first anarchists, such as Bakunin, conceal a truth and a solution. This truth and this solution must be restarted to solve the modern yarn ties.

We call upon the anarchist, libertarian and, in general, revolutionary collectivities to create events that conflict with NATO's sovereignty, by defining our fate by NATO's imperatives and the counterparts of the great powers and their local government officials.

The road to social liberation goes through the practical, terrestrial bridging of peoples in here and now.
