(en) [Greece] Against the arrest of the co-founder of the anarchist group Rouvikonas By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 15 Apr 2019 09:14:34 +0300


Giorgos Kalaitzidis , one of the most exposed members of the Greek anarchist group Rouvikonas, was recently ordered to pay 3,000 euros, which corresponds to 1 year and 4 months in prison. This punishment, which he can not afford, comes in addition to his current conviction to 56 months in prison. Financial solidarity as strong as its commitment can hold back the strategy of state repression through money. The group is actually threatened by 200,000 euros, 25,000 euros of legal fees and 528 months of imprisonment. ---- Financial support as strong as its commitment may prevent state repression. Their offensive solidarity exists thanks to reciprocity through our network of mutual assistance, capable of eliminating part of their punishment. Our goal is to reach an additional 10,000 euros¹. This support is economic and political: even if you can not participate in "shared money," sharing that information in your network is essential to the success of the campaign.

For those who do not know, Rouvikonas was formed in 2013 during the Greek financial crisis. If they worked at the outset as a support group for political prisoners on demonstration, they quickly opened their fight for the largest scale of state oppression. Comprised of nurses, teachers, students, store sellers, booksellers, welders, it attacks the corrupt policy of the state and the lobby. Through propaganda for the fact, they now accumulate hundreds of actions such as sabotage, invasion, occupation ... Among them: destruction of the record of over-indebtedness in Greece, destruction of the office of privatization of the common good, blocking negotiations with the Troika , various intrusions into Parliament and other places of power. For example, they destroyed financial records of indebted people, threw red paint in front of the French embassy on 22 April to protest against the crackdown on strikers, students, refugees, the poor and against bombing in Syria. Following this logic of struggle locally and globally, last December they convened a simultaneous international day of anti-capitalist and anti-fascist protests each month against the policy of austerity and environmental destruction.

Our support must be as radical and international as Rouvikonas' response to social and climatic emergency.

"If you do not find a solution, it means you did not create it," Giorgos

[1]At the end of February, a support train from France, Belgium and Switzerland brought significant financial support. But this amount was used to repay part of Rouvikonas' debt.
