(en) Greece, Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki: No alliance with the enemies of the working class Anarchist Federation

Date Sat, 2 Jun 2018 07:43:42 +0300

On 30/5, the "Social Alliance", ie the cooperation of the GSEE and ADEDY regime-employers confederations with a series of employers' professional associations (GSBEE, ESEE, TEE, Economic Chamber, Plenary of the Bar Associations, Panhellenic Medical Association, Panhellenic Pharmaceutical Association, Supreme General Confederation of Pensioners) call for a "National Day of Action" in the form of a nationwide "strike" and central demonstrations. At the same time, the 4th evaluation was closed at the technical level, which puts the principal pensions, salaries, sectoral collective agreements, social benefits and labor rights on the necklaces. It will be ratified in the forthcoming Eurogroup on 26/6, while on 21/6 the continuation of fiscal surveillance will be discussed.

The "National Day of Action" is another reminder of the bankruptcy and the failure to sell GSEE and ADEDY to the demands of local and international capital. The political framework of this demonstration is the reconciliation of workers and bosses. It is an act of ratification and promotion of the peace order in the general sense of national consensus. This initiative strengthens the bourgeois narrative about the passage of responsibility for class bleeding from the bottom to the stricken strata themselves, openly advocating the continuation of sacrifices on the social basis to save the national economy and promote entrepreneurship. Once again, in the face of the narrative of growth and national salvation, oppressed and exploited are going to pay entirely the broken capitalists.

It is at least cynical to call this striking mobilization called by the so-called "Social Alliance" strike. The strike is a weapon for the workers to defend their interests, to expand their rights, to extract even a piece of the wealth they produce, but they enjoy others. The strike, to be considered as such, has a clear class sign. It is not called upon by bosses to promote their interests. And something unfamiliar to the professional trade unionists, the bureaucrats and the aspirations of the political scene: The strike is not a formal obligation of no importance or a means of voting. It is, among other things, one of the tools the working class has to paralyze the productive process (demonstrating that it is the laborers who are the ones driving the productive process with their labor, those who produce everything and get only crumbs), a powerful a weapon that can play a catalytic role in the revolutionary process and the social expropriation of the means of production for self-management. The sold out trade unionists of GSEE and ADEDY have the audacity to talk about a strike when they were sneaking indifferent, when among the prerequisites of the 3rd evaluation, which were voted in favor, was the substantial abolition of the strike as a precondition for a strike by Primary Unions now have the approval of 50% + 1 of registered members, instead of the current guarantee of the majority of members present at the general assembly of the association. This arrangement typically makes it impossible to declare strikes, generously offering the bosses the "gift" of the unimpeded - from the mobilizations of the workers - the extraction of surplus value. This means that in the face of employers' arbitrariness, intensified and flexible working relationships, but also in the face of economic exploitation, the militant trade union response will have lost one of its most important tools: the strike.

On 30/5 we sabotage the deliberations of peace order and national unity. We show disobedience to the suggestions of the bosses away from the feast of the urbanized workers' confederations. We strengthen the community of our class interests through uninterrupted action and self-organization in the workplace, with a solid link to solidarity and mutual assistance among the people of our class.

In order not to live as slaves and not to beg for beggars, we must organize our social and class counter-attack against state and capital. We should be organized into grassroots societies, while bureaucratic-trade unionism is a hindrance to labor struggles because it is a pole of orderly peace and consensus in social and labor extermination policies while at the same time partisan "professional trade unionists" are being maintained and political career by aspiring creatures on the backs of the workers. To make unionism intransigent and militant, dangerous for bosses, general strikes, lasting and not spectacular rifles in the air to complete trade union duty.

Against the barbarity of modern totalitarianism, through the unconditional social and class organization and counter-attack from the base, without leaders and representatives, the transformation of existing productive and social relations passes through the destruction of the state and capitalism through the social revolution. To make a world for everyone and not for a few. A world where everyone will produce according to their capabilities and will receive according to their needs. A world where human exploitation by man, human nature and the power of man on man will cease. We are struggling for a society of universal emancipation, freedom, equality and solidarity,
