(en) Announcement on the latest events in Lefkimmi, Corfu by dwarf horse APO (gr) [machine translation]

THE CULTURE OF THE PRODUCTION, CONSUMPTION AND MANAGEMENT OF SCULPTURES DOES NOT EXTRACT - ANATREPETIA! ---- SOLIDARITY TO THE RUNNING RESIDENTS OF THE WHITE KERKEYRA WHICH ARE RESPONSIBLE IN STATE PROJECTS AND INCIDENTAL ---- On Tuesday 26 June, a strong police force (thirteen SAD squads and several IGC teams) made a trip to the island of Corfu in order to transport and deposit bundled waste in the Lefkimmi landfill. The repressive forces have been installed in Lefkimmi, the regional road network leading to South Corfu and the landfill site of Lefkimmi landfill in Messorahia, where the first "full" waste trucks are located. ---- The inhabitants of southern Corfu are once again massively on the streets to block the transport of garbage to their area. Conflicts of the residents with the MATs took place outside the landfill, resulting in the capture of 2 people, and in the afternoon of the same day, marchs took place, which resulted in collisions and barricades until late in the evening. In total, 4 arrests have taken place.

The issue of garbage in Corfu

The problem of waste management on the island of Corfu is very old and has been in the hands of local society for at least the last 50 years. In 1960, the landfill began in Temploni. This landfill was renamed as landfill in an effort to continuously accumulate tens of thousands of tonnes of waste in the same place.

As long as the problem of depositing garbage is timeless, the resistance of the inhabitants of South Corfu is so long lasting. An exemplary example is 2008, when they gave a fervent and militant struggle from below, through popular assemblies in village squares, with massive and massive mobilizations, conflicts with repression forces, occupation of the town hall, clashes with the police, blocking of the construction works and obstruction of the transport of the materials required in the landfill. The local community realized in time that no savior would come and that only by trusting in its forces, far from any kind of anathematic logic, could win the struggle. Their struggle against the construction of the CYTA, the barricades, the constant clashes with the suppression forces tainted dozens of arrests, beatings and persecutions. The village was transformed into an occupied police zone for quite some time,while on May 29, 2008, Maria Koulouri was assassinated after assault by the MTF on the resisting residents.

At the same time, the struggle of the Lefkimmians has demonstrated the real role of the institutions of bourgeois democracy. The movement was slandered by the media, sold out by the local rulers, the police were openly acting as the contractor's security company, and the judiciary violated every pretext of civic legitimacy, turning a blind eye to hundreds of irregularities of the project, giving the contractor freedom to trespass on fields to open up roads where it needed, to destroy crops to pass its vehicles, and to operate as a whale of the whole region. Everyone, the official institutions and institutions functioned perfectly as a single body with the sole purpose of completing the construction of the landfill at all costs.

Greek state: a big dump - an opportunity for business

For the Greek state, in the last few decades, the issue of garbage management has been left behind in a completely denial of nature management model, which consisted of a nasty network of dumps - whether legal or illegal - across the territory and in a few Landfills Waste (euphemistically, as they are landfills in which garbage is simply buried and buried with soil) and is responsible for the natural necrosis of entire areas, for contamination of subsoil and water and to cause a number of fires. The supersaturation of these landfills within only a few years, the large fines paid for these by the Greek state in the EU. and the highly profitable enterprise of building "modern" waste disposal sites for construction companies according to the demands of "green" entrepreneurship in the name of environmental protection led the state to design a new garbage management system. This new management system imposed by the state and the construction and construction companies provided for the construction of the HYT.A. throughout the territory to absorb the European funds earmarked for this purpose. foresaw the construction of the HYT.A. throughout the territory to absorb the European funds earmarked for this purpose. foresaw the construction of the HYT.A. throughout the territory to absorb the European funds earmarked for this purpose.

When state and contractor projects for CYTs were drafted, the necessary environmental studies were overridden and the propaganda that wanted the CYTAs escalated. as the "green" and "ecological" solution to the problem of waste management, for the withdrawal of social and political consensus. It is a fact that the construction of the CY.TA. next to inhabited areas, since it causes a multitude of environmental disasters by polluting the subsoil, the groundwater and the air with toxic substances, creates direct risks to the health of the inhabitants.

Throughout the planet, state and capital plunder and pollute the earth

On a global scale, the issue of waste management is directly linked to the uncontrolled consumer frenzy that promotes the existing system, covering a series of human-made needs that it has created to support the imposed economic model of life, destroying and pillaging at the same time a range of natural resources and resources, entire areas and ecosystems, due to pollution and contamination.

Therefore, the issue of garbage management is a structural element of over-accumulation of goods, the logic of uncontrolled looting and profit-taking from the physical world, ultimately the very way of organizing social life that the state and capitalist system itself has created.

Against their criminal plans ... the unrequited social resistance

Throughout these years, a series of resistances have emerged that have succeeded in redeveloping dikes in the machines of development and in the destructive, for the natural environment and human, state plans (Lefkimmi, Grammatiko, Karvounari Thesprotia, Keratea, Elliniko in Ioannina) as well to highlight the feasible and effective social and class resistance, as well as the number of signs where the resistance to the attack by the pundits on nature and local societies is manifested.

Characteristic is the example of the long-term and militant struggle of the residents of Grammatiki Attiki, who in July and October 2009 faced with dozens of MATs that accompanied the machinery of the contractor who has undertaken the construction of the HYATT. in the area, battling bodybuilding, blocking barricades and barricades, causing disasters in the company's machinery and tackling police violence and chemicals for many hours. In addition, in Keratea (an area of particular environmental, aesthetic and archaeological value), the state-owned enterprise and the big builder Bobola of a HYATT, has found a very massive and militant resistance from the surrounding areas and solidarity from the very first moment that, after the invasion of the machinery of the construction company and of the MATs in Ovriokastro, took on the character of an all-out collision of thousands of people with the uniformed murderers of the state. People with multi-faceted conflicts, faced with violence, arrests, persecution, chemicals and the breeze of the police, refused to subdue state terrorism and surrender their place to the plunder of the political and economic bosses. Recently (seven years after the cancellation of the landfill construction) the Joint Court of Justice found innocent the six accused residents who defended their fight in the courtroom. took the character of an all-in-one conflict of thousands of people with the state's murderers.

It is obvious that the future that the state-capitalist culture of pollution and development passes through the intensity of the attack on the environment and the local societies, as well as its social and environmental deadlocks, preserves and imposes on us all. Of course, the real social problem is not the management of garbage from any model that green capitalism puts forward every time, and it imposes the culture of sovereignty, but it is the very system that produces garbage for consumption, contaminating and destroying nature and society at the altar of gain and control.

The aggressive and devastating nature of the political and economic system on the natural environment and society is tragically emerging every day. From building and attempted the / u dams and the diversion of the River Acheloos in parallel will mean the destruction of the village Mesochora, wind farms in more and more areas, mining in DARK Halkidiki, the oil spill in the Saronic Gulf and the extraction of hydrocarbons in Epirus and the Ionian seems that the logic of "development", green or not, will pass through the flattening of our lives and the destruction and looting of the natural world.

Against this treaty, an overall social awakening is required, the overcoming of commission, mediation and inertia, the rise of social and class struggles, the formation of broad, self-organized, counter-institutional resistance fronts, and the creation of dikes at every point in the state and capitalist aggression.

Against the dystopian future they have, there is the choice of resistance and struggle. Let's remind them what happens when society takes the situation in its hands and resists massively and furiously in their designs. Social and class resistances are alive and they will win!
