(en) anarkismo.net: The cephalosis of Meteora by Anarchist Communist Kernel of Kalambaka (gr) [machine translation]

In the Thessalian plain, even today, feudalism survives in places. For, as a feudal only, we can consider the informal, but truly real, ownership of public land and forests for the benefit of certain neo-oligarchs who hold or attempt to keep alive their ties to their official feudal past. These neo-classics are specific. They are the monasteries and the clergy, they are the descendants of the prophets, the current majestic landowners, as well as prominent members of the local political elite, members of party formations. ---- Ending with the remnants of feudalism and the neo-classics ---- A few words about the settlement of Meteora ---- On 25/4/2017 just a few days before the convening of the Regional Council, the citizens of Kalambaka discovered that the council would give an opinion on an already deposited Presidential Decree concerns Meteora and more precisely their ownership status. The mayor of Kalampaka, Ch. Sinanis, consciously concealed for an unknown time the existence of the PD. However, more or less, his positions on this issue are known already in 2014. In particular, he was in agreement with his banns, written by the head of the Ephorate of Antiquities of Trikala, Matza.

So what do these bans on the Meteora site mean? They prohibit: a) the removal of self-employed salesmen, b) the prohibition of sporting activities (see climbing and other extreme sports), c) the prohibition of taking photos and videos, d) the prohibition of free camping, microwaves within the unstructured zone.

This particular PD. seals and strengthens the clerical dominance of the clergy in an entire natural landscape, which in fact becomes a feud in the hands of the rails. These approaches aim at converting Meteors into an avenue, for which the monasteries are the first and last word. It is well known that the church is one of the most powerful churches in the country, possessing immodest tax-free property, movable and immovable property, which dates back to the long past and is basically based on imperial chrysobulls of the Byzantine Empire, decrees of the then Ottoman power, with junts, dictatorships and executives of the post-elitist state elite. In short, we are talking about abusive appropriation of public-communal wealth with the help of each power. This role, moreover, the church has been performing for a long time and continues to be unmatched today. It is a crutch of each power, in order to contribute to the perpetuation of its subordination from the bottom, so as not to shake the interests of the ruling class. Still, it shifts the focus from the material world to the idealistic construct of metaphysical inspiration of posthumous, paradise or collapsing life, thus disorienting the material conditions of economic exploitation and political oppression and oppression experienced by the worldly dynasties their.

Meteor's hot topic is the regularly directed reactionary voices supporting the sterilization and stinging of Meteora. As in the past, there were noisies of the landlords who welcomed openly - or not - the absurdity of the initiators, so nowadays militant pens of the monks and the local power, through media of the region (see Stagon News and Meteora Litopolis) and municipal councils they endorse the total tradition of Meteora in their monasteries and business activities, in an environment of cooperation and competition between monasteries, tourist businesses and hotel units. The flimsy argumentation of these militant voices of the clerical reaction is based on a deep conservatism and puritanism, which is also reflected in the very existence of the monastic center, which they themselves defend after mania. They argue that Meteora is an untouched and exclusive guarding site of the Greek nation and of the Orthodox faith, so it must "be" in the irreplaceable. Their position is regarded by themselves as established and self-evident, commonly accepted by all. However, in the name of the homeland and Christianity this irrational theft of public wealth and the subsequent conversion of the natural landscape to the monastery's estate took place. so they must "be" in the irreplaceable.

The invocation of the sanctity and preservation, through a series of bans, of Meteors is in the face of internal contradictions and traditions. Their words are in conflict with their actions. The protection of the natural landscape is not only safeguarded but systematically undermined by illegal excavations, flooring, indoor and outdoor renovations in monasteries, the opening of new asphalts and the widening of the already existing, walled and forest clearing, as well as and parking facilities next to the monasteries. From the multitude of construction works, rubbish, waste and plaster remnants are produced, which end up in the paths, rocks and forests of Meteora, creating a peculiar dump with harmful effects on the natural environment.

A few words about the torture of the "Barbara" Forest in the Elaphi of Kalambaka

On 4/9/2017 a loggermaker workshop with the help of 80 cops was forced to spread their deserts and proceed to the felling of the "Barba" forest in Elafi Kalambaka, which remains free and untouched for 40 years thanks to the key reflexes of the inhabitants of the region, which have been blocking since 1968 any attempt to exterminate the forest by private individuals. Lately there have been some contenders of the forest, with inflows from well-known urban fireplaces in the area, including a prominent member of Syriza Trikalon, who selflessly account for themselves as "lawful" forest owners. In order to unravel the whole skein of this hypothesis, we must refer to the recent past of Ottoman domination (even if we consider that this term is not politically pure, as the ruling caste of the time was not exclusively of Ottoman origin, Greek protagonists and protesters). Upon their departure from the Greek territory, the Ottoman authorities granted forests, but also fields and pastures, to the foremen of the area, giving them rights of use but not ownership. These are, of course, small prints, as the ownership of the land was essentially transferred from one master to another, keeping the exploitation of the dead and slave masses. Over the years, however, this informal regime of abusive and hereditary property of the land has not been touched on either. the Ottoman authorities granted forests, but also fields and pastures, to the foremen of the region, giving them rights of use but not ownership.

Over the years, however, this informal regime of abusive and hereditary property of the land has not been touched on either.

Modern landowners want to impose their fist on an entire local community, citing their origins from the then elders, those who lived in the poor people's quarters, who were thirsty for a dish of food. This inherited "right" of enforcement comes to realize with the help of repressive mechanisms of the state, commonly the police, in order to terrorize the inhabitants of Elaphos. The progeny's descendants want to ruin nature for their own benefit. But they met the resistance of the village residents, who rushed to defend the natural wealth of their region from the capitalist appetites of those who threatened their integrity. Syriza, however, did not put it down. He tried to do what he has done since he took over state management. To acquire the popular consensus with hollow words and promises of the supposed prosperity of the whole, dehumanizing social and class resistances. In reality, however, it is the political staff of capital, which was masquerading with a progressive and humanistic mask.

For us, the alleged social-democratic government can not in any way reform the state and capitalism, leading the system towards a more "human" orbit. It is the very core of the state and capital that institutionally and structurally defines the exploitation of man and nature by man, oppression and sovereignty of the state to the detriment of the entire social majority in order to serve the interests of the ruling class more effectively. This means that the interests of the few are at the expense of many. For this reason, any negotiation and conciliation of the lower ones with instruments of power will always find them harmed. They are acts of peace with our class enemy. Lambs do not ask for protection from the wolf. This brutal reality was experienced by the inhabitants of Elaphos, when they were cheated by the blunky promises of the Syriza executives, who not only denied them, but only after two days they sent cops to make the harvesting process go ahead. The Syrians deputies try to take advantage of their state's property in order to reap the property that we ought to belong to the community in terms of communal and self-management, thus being truly public, community and available to serve the needs of the whole and not the few. The acquisition of the exploiters' consciousness attempted to establish with a demonstration of adventure, and the Golden Dawn, which as an openly declared fascist struggle, is the most aggressive reserve of capital but also the enemy of all the oppressed.

In the Thessalian plain, even today, feudalism survives in places. For, as a feudal only, we can consider the informal, but truly real, ownership of public land and forests for the benefit of certain neo-oligarchs who hold or attempt to keep alive their ties to their official feudal past. These neo-classics are specific. They are the monasteries and the clergy, they are the descendants of the prophets, the current majestic landowners, as well as prominent members of the local political elite, members of party formations. As long as the oppressed and the exploiters put their hopes on political medias, as much as they trust with almost religious beliefs bourgeois law and justice, as much as they hope for parliamentary and conciliation with the top, so they will experience defeat and frustration. We can not accept the end of the history that the sovereigns want us to believe, in order to passively accept the impoverishment prescribed by existing social and productive relations, especially amidst a capitalist crisis. The unbridled, collective, social and class struggles, with a weapon of solidarity and self-organization from the bottom, can pave the way for a few victories of the oppressed, integrating our daily struggle into whatever aspect of the social field, whether it unfolds as an organic and an integral part of the overall struggle for the universal emancipation from the bonds of the state and capital. The society of generalized self-management, freedom, equality, mutual assistance and community, for which we are struggling,

DO NOT ALLOW THE NATURAL COMMODITY IN THE HANDS OF THE MONASTERIES AND THE NEUTSFLACKS

TO BECOME AUTOORGANATED RESISTANCE CHAINS IN EACH TOWN, COMMUNITY AND VILLAGE

SOLIDARITY IS OUR COMPETITION
