(en) Greece: Anarchist calling for a general strike on February 20 by colectivo libertario evora (pt) [machine translation]
Wed, 20 Feb 2013 18:57:42 +0200
Faced with the frontal attack of the state and employers have to oppose our struggles
combative, emancipated and organized in a horizontal manner. ---- The systemic crisis of
capitalism is something that puts light on his antisocial character real. The pretenses
and appearances were set aside and the Power began a brutal attack against the oppressed
and exploited layers of society, with the ultimate goal lead us to a state of indigence
worse and increase the social and class difference between the powerful and the exploited.
The transformation of the system of power in a system of modern totalitarianism in recent
years is reflected in the unprecedented attacks that the state began performing.
The expulsion of many spaces, demonstrations forced the strikers, as a way to suppress the
strikes, the cruel tortures of fighters with a clear objective to "illustrate" and
intimidate the murderous attacks against state and parastatal immigrants, are phenomena
that make offensive part of total state and employers. It is an attack against the entire
society. And is society itself and the class of the oppressed who must repel this attack,
by organizing at the base, the deepening and broadening of social resistance and the
creation of a society of solidarity, equality and freedom.
The offensive of the bosses addresses with a particular intensity, to the world of workers
and the unemployed. The regime is imposing indigence to society through wage cuts, the
abolition of collective bargaining agreements, the outlawing of class struggles, the
attack they receive by means of massive misinformation, lack of satisfaction of basic
social needs, the exclusion of large sectors of society access to them and increasing
cases of blackmail in dismissals on the grounds of unemployment. Given this situation the
oppressed can not have illusions. The promises of a return to a previous state as given by
the Left have requirements abdication, institutional mediation and negotiate with
employers. Work objectively in a way to appeasing the anger accumulated social and
constitute a barrier to building a social movement and labor emancipated, organized from
below, whose aim is the abolition of exploitation of man by man.
The general strike of February 20, convened by direction, sold to employers, the General
Confederation of Greek Workers, is a one-day strike, about which we have no illusions. It
is not the result of an escalation of the struggles of the working class and coordinated
resistance. During the previous workers' struggles came to a standstill due to the
features that have been imposed by the logic of bureaucracy fed by the state of unionism.
These features never allowed workers' struggles to connect and join secondary, but led
them to exclusion and defeat.
In an environment in which the offensive and the State Capital becomes a complete and
coordinated manner, the workers have remained far apart, the unions have failed in their
hands and saw the struggles that are triggered headed by union bosses.
Opposing us to this situation, to February 20 we all go out to the street. To oppose both
the state as the Capital and the union bosses. Because each time the oppressed and the
exploited go together is always a great opportunity. An opportunity to ruin their plans.
Our massive presence and fighting in the street can contribute to that anger is expressed
and can give life to the struggle and the resistance perspective emancipated and organized
in a horizontal way. Because every fight he has in him the hope, even minimal, taking
fuller forms, must be strengthened.
Against submission, slavery and social misery being promoted only alernativa is to
organize our lives away from any kind of hierarchies, institutions and mediation
Counterattack and social class, for a free and self-organized.
Social revolution for communism and anarchy.
Assembly of the anarchist social self-organization.
