(en) verba-volant: Athens, December 20, 2017: Action against electronic ticket (ca, gr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 1 Jan 2018 10:27:29 +0200

Next, a communiqué issued by the Anti-authoritarian Site of the University of Social and Political Sciences for a march against the electronic ticket and all that entails for our life its introduction in mass transportation. ---- We are in a time of sharpened class differences and intentional impoverishment of lower social strata. At this time the State, in collaboration with the so-called "private initiative", launched another attempt to control public life. This time he put in focus the sector of public transport. The purpose of introducing the new electronic ticket system is the absolute control of a right that is already commodified. ---- From the outset the e-ticket goes beyond the commodification issue and enters a new field, imported from abroad, of societies in which the control of the populations is more advanced. They try to achieve normality in people's conscience and daily life, thus creating a very dangerous precedent for the violation of individual freedom, and achieving a victory of the liberal culture of control and vigilance.

Specifically, the fact that the social security number and the identity card are required, makes the identification of the owner of the electronic card is total. In this way, the possessor shares with the State all the information about his movements, with all that this implies. At the same time, it is unknown who and how they will manage this information, which concerns the daily lives of thousands of people, making a facet more transparent in our life.

Anyone who chooses not to pick the ticket to use the means of transportation will experience their physical exclusion from the use of these means. Despite all this, the reviewers will continue to exist, for no matter how technology advances, repression agents will continue to have work. In any case, no matter how advanced technology is, control requires the existence of people who impose it.

We as anarchists resist and will continue to resist every ticket, old or new, every kind of control, and we call on everyone to do the same.

Disobedience to any methodology whose purpose is control. Resistance by all means.

Passeata, December 20 , at 6:00 p.m., Monastiraki.
