(en) Greece, Anarchist Political Organization APO: Concentration against auctions (Thursday 31 May, 1 pm at Georgiou Square) --- NO HUMAN WITHOUT HOUSE - BLOCKING SWIMMING POOLS (gr) [machine translation]
Mon, 4 Jun 2018 07:16:40 +0300
For months, we have been gathering every Wednesday afternoon in front of the Patras County
Court to prevent our fellow-house auctions. Together with other fighters, student clubs,
collectives and organizations, we have managed - at the present time - to put down mounds
in the attempt to get the first home from the state and the banks. Respective
mobilizations were carried out by a number of people at county courts throughout the
country. Mobilizations that have occasionally been targeted by state repression and
resulted in the persecution of several fighters. ---- The inability of the state and
capitalist system to draw consensus on its plans has led to the adoption of the method of
electronic auctions through the relevant online platform. Electronic auctions are
conducted with the care of local notary offices on various days and hours. In many cases,
fighters attempted to block electronic auctions and were faced with the repressive state fury.
Despite government announcements for immediate operation of the system since September
2017, technical issues, according to the official version, have not allowed its
implementation. In fact, the development of a militant and unwavering movement to defend
housing and basic social goods coupled with widespread aggravation of the social anger and
indignation generated by the assault of the bosses created a climate of complete
socialization of the measure, postponed for about 7 whole months.
True allies throughout this aggressive movement of the state and capital are the big
notary offices, which act as the long hand of the banks by undertaking the implementation
of electronic auctions. Nobody is responsible ...
Today, electronic auctions are held in many notary offices under a massive massive
mobilization outside and under the protection of the police, which often attacks the
protesters and makes arrests.
Until mid-April, no Patras Notary Office had undertaken to conduct an electronic auction.
On the morning of Wednesday, April 18th, it became clear that Athena Ravazoula's notary,
in Votsi 52, will auction houses in Agrinio. After the intervention of several fighters,
no auctioning eventually took place.
A few days later, on the evening of Tuesday 24/4, it became known that besides the
Ravazoula notary, the notaries of Papageorgiou Vasiliki at Botsi 21 and Mitropoulou Irene
at Kanari 45 will attempt to carry out electronic auctions. Massive mobilizations took
place outside these offices, but the strong presence of the MATs that blocked the road to
the movement secured their conduct.
On Wednesday, May 16, a group of 25 anarchists attempted to invade the Ravazoula notary at
the time of electronic auctions, which allowed them to accept the attack of MAT with wood
and chemicals. The next day, a reunion took place outside this office with the
participation of several people. Meetings outside of notaries continue to date, at any
given date when they are held.
For Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st May, a series of online auctions are scheduled at
notaries Ravazoula (Votsi 52), Papageorgiou (Votsi 21) and Mitropoulou (Kanari 45). For
our part, we call the world of the struggle for vigilance for the upcoming mobilizations,
which attempts to exploit the social wealth in our region and declare that we will stand
in every way against the state and its mechanisms in the attempt of looting the people's
residence. Housing, as well as access to basic social goods (electricity, water, health,
education) are non-negotiable rights and we will defend them against the state which once
again bangs the lower and poorer social strata confirms its timeless antisocial role . Any
notary attempts to contribute to the realization of the most anti-social plans of the
state and the capital must know that he should also bear the cost of his choices. This is
the moment when organized,
Especially at a time when bosses and unprofessed trade union leaders are promoting
co-operation through the "social alliance," we insist that the only way to be able to
respond to the state-run assault, banks and bosses is the road of social and class
struggles.Employees, unemployed, youth, locals and immigrants, knowing their real needs,
must live in their own hands, organize themselves and fight, collectively, self-organized
and uninvolved, away from all sorts of mediation and factories. In every social and
workplace, in schools and schools, workplaces, neighborhoods and streets, away from any
party and syndicalist manipulation that inevitably leads to the weakening and degeneration
of the social and class movement. It is now perceived that the underprivileged of society
can no longer have any confidence and can not expect anything from all sorts of aspiring
managers and mediators of social anger.
We emphasize that the insidious approaches of the state, the bosses, the bankers and their
notaries will fall into the gap. No attempt to evict will be tolerated. Safeguard our
neighborhoods, apply social solidarity and class self-organization in practice.
To link the few and demanding struggles for permanent and stable work, access to the
social goods of housing, care, education, for the defense of labor and social rights, with
the comprehensive and timely social and political demand to overthrow the world power and
the libertarian transformation of society. For the society of equality and solidarity. Of
justice and freedom.
NO PEOPLE WITHOUT HOUSE
TO ORGANIZE SOCIAL SELF-MADE AND CASUAL COMPETITION!
