(en) Greece: for international solidarity! (gr, fr) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 05 Dec 2012 11:36:08 +0200

On November 7, as part of the general strike 48 hours, Protesters clashed with police in front of the Parliament building, then at the same time, new severe measures against the workers and society in general were voted. ---- On November 14, as part of the solidarity strike for Europe South, protesters in Spain, Italy and Portugal have clashed with police. ---- Thus, the world of work / unemployment is increasing with collision the capitalist world. And the state is waging a war against increasingly harsh society. ---- The direct action, political struggles organized training cons-social structures and international solidarity, based on horizontal structures and the refusal of the state and capitalism is our way, our contribution to social antagonism and class has steadily increased.

Patterns to avoid any case of uncontrollable social upheaval
in the countries of southern Europe, prefer, as has already happened
in history, see form in society a mixture of fear,
panic and bigotry, which then turn to the Conservatives
and / or totalitarian regimes. Of course, they prefer civil war
the social revolution, the Nationalist massacres between nations
reversal of their class domination. This trap exists in all
Mediterranean Europe and the Balkans have never been so

In fact, in Greece, the participation of workers in the past
strikes was not as expected. People know that "something
large "should happen to change things radically. Well
course, this does not mean that people are willing to risk today
even a bit of that "something big." So what people do
mainly is to wait until the situation improves a bit, some
voting for the left party SYRIZA. Another part, important
number, spring elements dirtiest days fed by the system
bourgeoisie, by voting for the Nazis Xrisi Avgi (Golden Dawn).

In the private sector, the concept of strike is unthinkable. There is very little
sectors and even fewer individual workers, who conquered
the right to strike by their struggles.

However, part of the Greek society, small but discrete
this particular activism and dynamics that seem to
Currently not give under any pressure. This
part is different fronts of struggle in neighborhoods
Athens, in cities large and small in Greece, in the streets.
In this section, anarchists have a fundamental role. The action of
Anarchists in the most recent period is usually located in
local assemblies and direct democracy in the cons-structures
social actions in fascist and solidarity with
anarchist prisoners.

Our position is that the Greeks do not deserve the solidarity of a
general and vague, but based on a specific reasoning.
Those who deserve the support material solidarity and direct
First, those who struggle in Greece, as those who struggle in other
Europe and wherever the struggles are the same. The
cons-structures of mutual aid and social solidarity, which are created by
those of the struggle, the efforts of these structures are cons-
not related to philanthropy or fishing vote, but have to do
with dignity and strength.

It is true that the economic situation that continues to deteriorate, a
limited the scope of some forms of our action. In addition,
cons-social structures (medical centers, cooperatives, etc.)
that have been initiated or are being created are not
continually face the problem of lack of money or elementary
infrastructure. Today in Greece and elsewhere, it is clear
how practical ideas of Proudhon and suggestions
Kropotkin's anarcho-communists continue to provide a perspective

So we thought we could do the following:
1) At the anarchist internationalism, coordinated within the IFA
(International Anarchist Federations) and affiliated groups
in other countries. Posters, leaflets commonalities, interventions
coordinates are of great importance, because they demonstrate unity
Action internationalist and, to a certain degree, they can reduce
economic problems of a federation or a particular group.
We emphasize that such action is coordinated for us
a valuable tool for policy in our country. We know
what are the positions of the European parties of the extreme right to the
Greece: the Greeks have a word "to drown". We
the opportunity to show that the only road that exists for people to
to live in dignity is through solidarity and internationalist
2) Material support to specific initiatives or anarchists
cons-social structures. The first is used to support the fight
anarchist and the second enables the emergence and expansion of a
against-society within society.

Therefore, we must inform you that recently more and more
comrades are concerned about the issue of creating a
organization more efficient and massive anarchists in Greece,
a federal basis. But for this to become something really
alive and real, a long road is still needed.
