(en) Greece, anarkismo.net: For forest fires - The state neither can nor want by Anarchist Federation (gr) [machine translation]

Only with the creation of local patrols, organized and equipped with massive participation, there can be prevention and early repression of fires. Only if we take back the stolen public from the hands of the state and the market we can be the owners of our lives. The environment can only be safe in the hands of those who live, sweat and rely on it. But to do that, we have to make a decision that the role of the newscaster is ultimately the surest arson. ---- Forest Fires: The state can not and never wants ---- the same job every year. Wide forest areas, those in the capitalist world of "development" are virtually useless (if not obstructed) to market plans are destroyed and with them lives, property of people of our class are lost, lives of everyone are degraded. Each year, the same poem by the media, the same gossips from the government and opposition, the same wishes for prevention, for firefighting and staff shortages, the same festival for the reunion of the NGOs and each CSDP.

Reality is rude. The natural environment is something completely indifferent to the holy alliance of state and capital. Forests, water beaches have value only and as far as they can bring profits to businesses, raise property values or become propaganda in the lips of regime propaganda. Let's make it a decision, for power forests are useless. He does not want, especially at the time of the crisis, to "squander" resources on equipment or recruitment. If some resources are to be cut off, clean-ups in the spring, maintenance of the PPC forest network, garbage collection and municipalities' black dumpsters will be the first victims.

Only in the times of "prosperity", when supposedly and equipment existed and could be maintained, when we recruited permanent and seasonal personnel in the fire-fighting, we again had the same.

We will not enter into conspiracies about how they start and who benefits from today's fires. We all know how the bourgeoisie (but also the "bravado") bourgeoisie built its villas in the past, how the peri-urban real estate was made, how the inter-state conflicts burned forests in the "sensitive" areas on both sides of the Aegean . In any case, the possibility of forest fires will not leave us either due to natural conditions or accidental incidents, or even due to the indifference of citizens on motorways, camps, etc. The question is whether the state, which is supposed to work is to respond to this kind of challenges wants and can do it. The answer is that neither wants nor can.

The state is not a protection mechanism, it is a parasite of social wealth, it is the defender of the interests of capital. The only solution is direct social mobilization in the threatened areas, with the help of the whole social base. Alongside exercising the maximum possible pressure on state, regional and municipal authorities to secure the necessary infrastructure, we must organize ourselves and protect the environment in which we live.

Only with the creation of local patrols, organized and equipped with massive participation, there may be prevention and early repression of fires. Only if we take back the stolen public from the hands of the state and the market we can be the owners of our lives. The environment can only be safe in the hands of those who live, sweat and rely on it. But to do this, we have to make a decision that the role of the newscaster is ultimately the surest arson.
