(en) Greece, verba-volant: Information on the 1st April demonstration against new measures in mass transit (ca, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 13 Apr 2017 09:38:32 +0300

On Saturday, 1 April , a demonstration against the new measures was carried out in the center of Athens in the mass media (very strict forms of control and surveillance, buses and subways, surveillance cameras inside wagons, special vigilantes Mass media, in collaboration with the police, and above all the electronic ticket measure, recording the personal data of the passenger and excluding persons from the use of means of mass transport). This mobilization comes in addition to a series of demonstrations, actions and sabotage, in response to the approval of the measures previously mentioned. ---- Some 500 people participated in the demonstration, in a city of 4.5 million inhabitants, most of whom use the means of transportation daily or several times a week. We noticed that the protesters met with a number of lobotomized consumerists, who advocated the commodification of social goods and their "democratic right to pay for mass transit".

Most of the demonstrators were anarchists, anti-authoritarians, libertarians, and Persons belonging to organizations and initiatives against electronic tickets and advocate the free use of mass means of transport. We also note that no party (parliamentary or extra-parliamentary) has called any kind of demonstration against the commercialization of means of transport and (new) forms of control and surveillance.

The concentration took place in the square of Monastiraki and was succeeded by a march to the Greater Place (Sintagma) along the pedestrian street Ermú, more commercial of Antennas. Some of the shouted slogans were as follows: "Neither control bars nor reviewers: We deny paying for our basic needs", "For transportation the solution is easy: Free use of mass media, and kick at the reviewers" and "Nem Bars or validation machines, the crisis has to be paid by the bosses "( video ). Once the march was over, several of the new ticket validation machines, installed at the Omonia subway station ( video ) , were broken .
