In the autumn-winter of 2015-2016 we are, the year after the referendum-rioting on the government of SYRIZA-ANEL with the hottest question of debate, from the TV channels to the Parliament and the neighborhoods being the migratory flows and their management by the state. This is because migrants cross the borders of Europe and, in any case, Greece, who have been struck by the war and the socioeconomic trench, find thousands of deaths in Evros and the Aegean (and all the land and maritime borders). In this context, it is decided to go to Evros and specifically to the village of Kastania, who wants to demonstrate precisely this, death. The SYRIZA government, following the immigration policy of a fortress Europe that is standing up every day with the bodies of dead migrants, refers to "technical" issues that prevent the Ebro fence from falling and even the immigration policy minister stated that "it is wrong to consider the passage of the Ebro to be untouched" , when people were drowning daily trying to cross the border and seek asylum in our country.
The borders are closed, walls are raised and immigrants are left in the treaties of the European Union. The Europe-fortress opens the smuggling of migrants by creating an exemption regime for those who are surplus. These conditions, however, serve the interests of capital, whose "laws" require the creation of cheap labor. The supposedly humanitarian values of Europe, then, impose the absorption of a very specific number of immigrants so as to meet the needs of the capitalist system. And when these needs are met, then the tap is closed ... then there are only wet graves of immigrants, only minefields and fences, social cannibalism and racist behaviors. Then the murderous attacks of the partisan and the state continue to be found and the bosses find the next victims of their exploitation.
In the context of this particular treaty and with the central targeting of the demonstration against the Evros fence, we made massive distractions, intervention in the port and propaganda posters, microphones, etc.
One of the propaganda posters of the course is in the area of Golden Dawn offices in Thessaloniki . Associates involved in this action are being prosecuted for accusations of prominent wear and tear. This court adjourned for May 18, 2018

The Golden Dawn

The place and timing of the trial are of particular importance. The Athens Stock Exchange, after the arrests of some of its orchestras, has been stigmatized as a criminal organization, but for decades it has been and is the core of fascist, intolerant propaganda and action in Greece. We can not forget the pogroms in immigrants, the beatings in fighters, the assaults on hangouts and the murders of immigrants and anti-fascists, all with the coverage of the state and Hellenic Police. who, of course, did not show any mood to cut off or at least limit to a certain extent the activity of their vanguard until the situation had reached the endless and the crimes became so harsh that the inaction from the democratic arc would have seemed absurd. The murderous pogrom of migrants,
But even now, the ASE lawsuit, pages on the pages of the achievements of its protagonists, can not be seen as anything but a parody, where the state mechanism protects itself and its allies, throwing in softly accused. The murderer of Pavlos Fissa, Roupakia, is still free and now, while the fascists despite their criminal prosecutions, continue their action by carrying out a pogrom of immigrants a few days before, in Aspropyrgos. Any convictions of the fascists can not convince us of the institutional antifascism that the state sells. As anarchists we perceive the battle against fascism as a part of the most comprehensive struggle against capitalism, and we struggle on the road to break the fascism and the system that gives birth to it.
Continued anti-fascist action has succeeded in dismantling the Golden Dawn's ability to act on the streets and has forced the state to further step up protective measures towards fascist formations, making the relationship between state-partisans even more apparent. Social action and fighting anti-fascism give the solution to the fascist militancy, the intervention at the offices of the Athens Stock Exchange. in Thessaloniki last October in view of the demonstration against the Ebro fence, was the most clear signal that the fascists of the city or their holes can not sit quietly. This angered the state and the police first, who rushed to file a joint file with the fascists to blame and insurers to betray anti-fascists.
The case-file specifically targets, of course, not only the defendants themselves and our two members, as a whole, the collectivity of Social Anarchism Black and Red, stating, as an understandable proof of the case file (and of our anti-fascist action) the intervention at the ATHEX offices. ELAS's cooperation with fascists will continue with the personal targeting of a team member. It seems that the state will do as it passes by its hand to back the fascists. However, it is a matter of time and the new batch of nationalists of the Holy Lodge, AMU, etc. to end up where they were found and all the previous ... in the hospital and from there to some uncharted hole.

Why are we anti-fascists?

The wars in the Middle East, and in particular the worsening of the war in Syria, led millions of people to the land and water borders of Greece in order to ensure their entry into Europe and at the same time their survival. However, the plans of the state and of capital can never have a human sign, except ____. So, the borders functioned like a tap, providing Europe with the cheap workforce it needed and then shutting down by condemning thousands of people to death. But even those who managed to get to Europe were confronted with concentration in concentration camps and the invisibility that made them easily manageable but also easy victims. Immigrants themselves, looking for answers to their solicitation struggles for papers or asylum, either a roof took over the train lines at Eidomenis at the border, but also, together with the solidarity movement, we saw in many cities the structures of food and shelter, structures that politicized local people and migrants and immigrants, effectively realizing the slogan for common struggles. This was something that could not be left unanswered by the Greek state, which, always in tandem with the supranational institutions, tried to suppress and control the situation. This translates into the evacuation of Edomeni, to the creation of open-ended camps, always outside the urban fabrics, making people virtually invisible, but also to the continuation of the institution, in spite of any pre-electoral fanfare for abolition, of closed-type camps, concentration camps.
The solidarity movement, along with the support of the existing structures, was often found by intervening in camps of all types and tried to approach these people in a direct way from the piers of the port of Piraeus to Kalochori in Thessaloniki. This movement, in Thessaloniki, was also the noborder camp and the Anarchist Match Meeting in July 2016, with the participation of thousands of immigrants and immigrants and interlocutors of domestic and Europeans. The activation of the repressive mechanism was immediate, as a few days after the end of the camp, three occupations of immigrant and immigrant homes were evacuated in Thessaloniki, whose inhabitants were sent to camps in the county and the comrades found in the structure of the Orphanage were prosecuted (and relieved at the Court of Appeal) in a grave criminalization of their joint action. This, of course, has also been a major blow to competitive structures.
Combined with the fact that all of the aforementioned for the living conditions of those without papers still residing in Greece are still valid, although they are no longer displayed by the media (obviously they no longer sell so much), they constituted the dismantling of the construction of the inner enemy from the Greek state, where immigrants, anarchists and those who disrupt their action by the smooth operation of the modern totalitarian system of course and was a key hit in competitive structures.

The movement of the fascists

In the year 2017, to talk about the fascist phenomenon, we can not go on a conversation just about the Golden Dawn. The devastation of its world, at least in the public debate, but also its absence, is related to the trial for the Golden Dawn organization, which continues. At the same time, far-right and fascist groupings, which declare autonomous from the Athens Stock Exchange, are trying to mend politically. This, however, does not mean that they do not fully preserve the mischievous reason she has inaugurated. Thus, in the north of Greece, in recent times, we have seen actions undertaken by various local authorities of the Athens Stock Exchange. (see Office inauguration in Xanthi and event in Kavala and Komotini) or also by groups such as the Patriotic Movement in Kavala, later renamed Phoenix. Especially in Thessaloniki, in 2016 in the area of Oreokastro, a short-lived grouping called the Patriotic Movement of Oreokastro attempted to be plagued as the local reaction to the arrival of refugees in school, something that was not tolerated by the anti-fascists, with constant interventions in the region, the Autonomous Ma'andian Nationalists attempted unsuccessfully to attack social and occupied spaces the Sacred House calls last year meetings that are never announced on the occasion of anniversaries that do not concern anyone (last August: 30th) for the victory of El Military Army in Grammos and Vitsi ').
These appointments, even though they are not always and always under the protection of ELAS, are placed, however, at regular intervals, in an attempt, apparently, of the fascists to claim public space and space, creating a beaten.
The response of the anti-fascist movement, which consistently stands against these pseudo-claims, is obviously well-reputed by the police, which apparently acts on demand from above. The range of repression ranges from bans of demonstrations, to wood to protesters and protesters (lastly the course of Pavlos Fissa), anti-fascist arrests, and collections aimed at collectives. In particular, in Thessaloniki again, the gatherings of the Holy Lodge are guarded by more than 100 times the number of their concentration, so on March 29 we have 3 arrestees on a anti-fascist course in the White Tower, one of them a minor, and on July 19th the course is being pushed unintentionally and the MADs attack sexistly in comrades.
Of course, this attitude of the authorities, both centrally and at street level, gives the space that the calls of fascists can not conquer socially, sets the framework for hatching the snake egg that today can target immigrants, occupations, anarchists but ultimately it concerns us all.

Calling
We as anarchists and anarchists defend all those who daily put themselves in the anti-fascist struggle for human emancipation in terms of collective, resistance and solidarity in the various shooting of the times, from Sofia to Bulgaria to the courts of Alexandras Avenue and Oreokastro as the courts of Thessaloniki. No fascist challenge will remain unanswered. Every attack of the state in the world of struggle will be confronted with our solidarity.
We call all those who were together in struggles, immigrants and solidarity, anti-fascists and anti-fascists on Tuesday 24 October for the comrades who were arrested on the anti-fascist course in the White Tower on March 19th.
