(en) Greece, Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki: Call for anti-war-anti-national course in Larissa Saturday 26/5, 12:00, Post Office (gr) [machine translation]

At the moment, global capitalism is experiencing another structural crisis of over-accumulation, which emerges clearly from its inherent internal contradictions. A fundamental feature of capitalism is the accumulation of profit through the exploitation of human labor and nature. Expansion and reproduction of capital is a necessary condition for the perpetuation of capitalism. States as well as capital are expansive, with each one wanting to expand its radius of power and influence. In order to survive in market competition, capital needs to spread and find international investment paths. The most direct way to achieve this is war. ---- As the weather passes and the rivalries between states - and especially the major powers - are becoming more and more intense, the possibility of a war of enlarged dimensions is quite large. After all, a war of local dimensions is being carried out, and even close to us - we see the bombing of the United States, Britain, France, Russia and the Assad regime in Syria every day. The big wage of the war is the control of rich energy sources mainly in the Middle East and the wider eastern Mediterranean. The "big players" on the energy control board are the states that are high on the pyramid of the imperialist hierarchy like the US and Russia. Of course, regional imperialist powers (Israel, Turkey, Iran, the powerful EU countries) play a minor but important role in this game, but having managed to gain relatively high negotiating power in the face of superpowers. Greece wishing to prove that it is a "pillar of stability and peace" in the Eastern Mediterranean invested in making international alliances in the US. However, the chances of engaging the Greek state in a war with the Turkish are well founded. In recent months, we have witnessed competition between the two countries for the prevalence of each other on energy sources in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean. Marine plots, EEZs, airspace, coconuts, and so on are just a few of the reasons for a conflict and, by extension, a national war. But for us, this kind of war means something very specific: it means war for the interests of our bosses.

At a time when war plans are dwindling and are slowly approaching the "West" itself (eg Ukraine), all oppressed and exploited are those who are destined to become northerners in the canons of the sovereigns. War is a passage to capital so that it can emerge from the structural crisis of over-accumulation that capitalism itself gave birth, destroying stable and variable capital - through production and workers - creating new markets with business opportunities of excessive profitability, so that capitalists can exploit raw materials and workers in utterly derogatory and degrading terms so that capital can be reconstructed and developed after a long period of destruction, staring on the corpses of the international proletariat.

As anarchists we will not fight for the bosses. We are not going to turn arms barrels to our class brothers, from which they are only separated us artificially from top border lines, nations and religions, in order to reinforce the disorientation of the underpowered political oppression and economic exploitation that exist and divide themselves among themselves rather than the community of their material interests. The only war we are involved in is the endless social and class war,

To express this, their explicit refusal to fight for the interests of their bosses and their explicit aversion to the idea of picking up a weapon against any oppressed, any nationality, many comrades all over Greece and all over the world have decide to follow the path of total refusal to serve (not serving in the army in any "alternative way"). This decision bothers every state mechanism around the world as it challenges the basis on which its own existence rests: the "people" rallying around a national idea - always to cover up the class exploitation. Against this ideology that all he does is serve the interests of capital, we answer that there are no Greeks or foreigners. There are only proletarians,
