(en) Greece, Thessaloniki, anarchist-federation: THE PROLETARS DO NOT HAVE A PATRY - Calling on the path of the Balkans (gr) [machine translation]

The re-emergence of the Macedonian issue was a rare opportunity for every kind of nationalist and fascist dwelling to take a place in public speech and to try to promote its murderous political plans. The nationalist rallies in Thessaloniki and Athens served this very purpose. It was also obvious to the most naive, that the supposedly uncomplicated and non-political character of the rally, advertised with so much diligence by the media, was just a sheep that under the beast hid it - and as it turned out, it did not take him much to feel certain and to reveal his real face. Somehow, the useful idiots turned into dangerous idiots. It is obvious that several tendencies of the far right and nationalist space consider it time for a parliamentary party of the far right beyond the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn. But it is also obvious that the ideology of national unity that seeks to instill reconciliation with class and social inequality and oppression does not only benefit these circles but almost all of the sovereignty, as the spread of the nationalistic poison breaks the social basis and distracts it from its real problems and interests, especially during periods of capitalist crisis.

The results of this effort should not satisfy the organizers of the 2 rallies. In spite of the dirty crowns following the rallies, world crowd or mindset approached that of the 1992 rallies, and of course not even touched at least ten percent of the 1,500,000 ceiling they wanted to achieve in full mobilization right-wing and nationalist circles. Nevertheless, several thousand framed and participated in the nationalist delirium. This fact has inevitably raised the question of whether all those who participated in patriotic fascist fiestas are all. The answer, in our view, is that they may not all be fascists, but they are the social backing of fascism and nationalism, and it is certainly the most receptive to these ideas, a potential to be exploited. And this is more prominent than anything else: the Fascist rallies have been attacked in places of struggle, and all those who have been demonstrating with them have been attacked, those who have washed them in squares by legitimizing their public presence.

In the Thessaloniki Nationalist rally on 21/1 fascist troops attacked the Free Social Space School (where they were repelled by security) and Libertatia Occupy (where the cops covered the arson of the building with the cover of the cops). They also attempted to attack the anti-nationalist concentration of Kamara while the Golden Dawn also denounced the Jewish Holocaust Memorial. In Athens on 4/2 they attacked the Free Self-Managed Theater EMPROS (where they were also repelled by the guardianship). However, the anti-fascist reflexes of the movement did not allow them to further extend their action as all the kinematic spaces were protected while anti-fascist patrols and patrols existed in Exarchia and Agios Panteleimonas.

Over time, the Balkan peoples have paid much of their nationalism. At this juncture we have an absurd requirement on the side of the border to have the Greek state the main reason for naming another nation-state. A demand tempered by the EU's willingness to integrate the Republic of Macedonia within it and the need for NATO to expand its sphere of influence. On the other side of the border we see a growing nationalism that aims to create and consolidate their own "national myth" and often takes totally ridiculous forms, but clearly not even more ridiculous than our "own" nationalism. A look at the photos of the two rallies confirms the verdict.

The oppressed and the exploited have nothing to divide between us. Our oppressors are common and have the same name, regardless of their nationality, and these are the state and the capital. The only thing that nationalism manages to do is to separate and distract them from the bottom by facilitating the bosses, and that is precisely the service that offers sovereignty, that is why it is systematically promoted and planted on the social basis. We, for our part, will strive to dissolve every separation on the body of the oppressed and exploited. So we must fight together with the oppressed and the exploiters of all countries to create a common internationalist front that will raise a barrier to nationalism and fascism, which will fight against the state and the capital, which will thunder that it will not let our bosses separate us on the basis of nationality, color, sexual orientation, sex, religion, or any other dividing line. Who will fight for an a-state, a-class, non-national life.
