(en) Greece, Press Release of the anarcho-syndicalist Initiative Rosinante: Not one time in the army (gr) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 16 Dec 2012 17:35:41 +0200

Anarchosyndicalist Communication Initiative - Rosinante on the prosecution of the total denier conscription Exioglou Menelaus. ---- The refusal of military service although not inherent in central planning and leftist positions, left and any kind of party machinery is a point of struggle and struggle of a whole hundred years. Since the first wave of mass desertion on the Balkan wars in Asia Minor and executions of Tsoukari and Orphanides 1949, decades of imprisonment deniers after the civil war to torture Junta (Th.Kogiou case) from the first public denial policy of conscription Maragaki '86 at his court martial Menios Exioglou years in 2012. ---- The refusal of military service for political and ideological reasons finds himself from the '80s onward, asking questions and stating practical-political, public and nice-contrast and conflict with the military and national militarism in general.

The national army as a mechanism to circumvent the political and social rights of the person who is called to serve Him, acts as a cradle fascist, pseudo-patriotic and racist attitudes and places the person in a state of slavery, taking orders, homogeneity, homophobia and xenophobia. Meanwhile, the military apparatus against any manifestation of association, organization and class struggle, promoting the model of passive human agent who now works as a soldier, and not as a free social being. With reference to the emblem and the "external enemy" eliminate social inequalities and conflicts that take place every day and invites everyone, rich and poor, exploiters and exploited, fascists or not, to camp and become a mass, a mass social will be trained to do what he's told and safeguard the interests of those they say. The Greek government, in turn, uses the military apparatus for the expansion and domination of international and domestic capitalist interests, through the integration of these "external enemy" and-potentially-internal repression of the people when the police and experiences of media fails to do its job. Timely receipt of this unique government's refusal to request troikanon laoktonon to abolish tenure for reducing spending, while no "no" was heard for wages, pensions, education, health, benefits and labor relations kourelocharta. All this happens in a country located on the first arms expenditure per capita among European countries, the second in NATO after the U.S. and eighth in the world. Militarism elladitsa beats the first one that hardly disputed and difficult changes, while its citizens are ready to eat each other for a piece wage.

In this context and under these conditions the negatively conscription prosecuted Menelaus Exioglou for choosing not to participate in a theater of the absurd and hate, subordination and postponement of social struggles. We stand in solidarity with the social activists and hostile to those who aspire to silence them. The persecution of deniers conscription is persecution of conscience.
