(en) Greece, Everything is stolen, everything belongs to us - Solidarity in occupied spaces (gr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 19 Jan 2013 12:07:54 +0200

On Thursday 20/12, the police invaded the space of 22 years of occupation "Villa Amalia" capturing the world that lies within. --- A few days later, on 28/12, on the pretext of combating illegal trade constitutes interference to radio station "radio band subversive expression-98fm» ASOEE where the seized material emission, while immigrants arrested 16 vendors fled the building to find asylum. On 9/1 epanakatalipsi made the Villa, where he captured 93 comrades. --- At the same time reflective place occupied the offices of DIM 'NO', which was suppressed, and then becomes revengeful invasion and occupation cops Patision 61 & Scaramanga. ---- Finally, the image completes the evacuation Lela Carayannis at 15/1, which regained Alamo vanetai few hours later.

The response of the world against the attack of generalized state and bosses was immediate, culminating in the nationwide march on 12/1, where tens of thousands of protesters voiced their full support to the social spaces and their solidarity with those arrested. The targeting of squatting Villa Amalia and Scaramanga could not be accidental. Aside from the intense political activity and presence in the neighborhood, have undoubtedly become in recent years a substantial obstacle to the spread of fascist attacks on immigrants in the Attiki Square Victoria Square. Still, housing in Villa typographic collective Rota which had drastically contributes to the spread of various political speech collectives, as in the case of the occupation of the corresponding delta and printing group, is an important factor in the choice of target in terms of the state.

These actions are not something new in relation to the disposition shown by the government. This shameful arrest of the 11 strikers AUTH contractor in the field of university asylum Delta of eviction, arrest 3 unionists during the visit Fouchtel and suppression of the strike at the steel plant, only a few examples to show that what not manipulated, suppressed. For us, the occupation of the untapped area does not violate the public interest. Is essentially a political act in opposition to the status quo. At the same time, it gives the place character of freedom of expression, equality, exchange views creativity that modern social structures have deprived us. It is about the epanaoikiopoiisi the space is no longer a living organism and adapted according to the needs of the participants. History has shown that all the empty buildings or left in disuse in terms of entities (municipalities, universities) or sold to become megaloidiotes hotels, entertainment centers, etc. The construction of schools, museums, hospitals, or anything else in epikallountai logydria for the public interest, it is evident that the crisis in Greece you can not be happen.

The occupation unquestionably fought for one basic reason. Has always been a powerful weapon of the weak against the fences and exploitation engendered by the system. Today it continues to be a powerful tool.

Without doubt beyond social spaces and places, an empty building can be a shelter, a home for anyone who is unable to cope financially. For us, providing housing is not charity, as perceived by boot-Kamini and others, but something obvious. Each worker-unemployed rightfully represents a house and can not be deprived of the one. She offers this, and he himself must claim it in any way if the deprived.

The same applies for the feeding. The land occupations preceded the obvious: In times of crisis and poverty throughout the unused (non-public) land should be used, not for the interests of the bosses, but in the interest of society. The public has finally become public.

Finally occupations workplaces are neither fetishes nor made from a revolutionary graphics portion. They are found as the above to a need. The self-management of the means of production is the only way of survival for workers in companies bankrupt or move because they do not offer the expected profits of the bosses (like the factory indu, or movement in Argentina).

From the above viewpoint: Outlaws are not squatters but all those who lead the world in poverty and misery. Centers lawlessness are not the social spaces but the parliament, the municipalities, the decision centers, offices of the bosses. Violations are not the meetings but the bills abolishing the minimum wage, increases in oil and power, the criminalization of freedoms, the refusal to pay accrued. It is inconceivable that after so many scandals and hypocrisy (see Papaconstantinou tsochantzopoulous, Psomiadis, Papageorgopoulos and many others) to accept moral lessons and respectability of the bourgeoisie and their lackeys.

Things are simple. They know who we are, what we do know and what we fear. To all xeftiles dimosiografiskous-cops-politicians-bosses have to say this: Everything is stolen, all of us belong. The society collapses and the time has come to take things into our own hands. Let us see these days are the last to them.
