"To fight it all we need is a little modesty, a little more dignity and a lot of
organization" ---- On July 3, 5, 6 and 7 July, the Eleftherias Festival of Social,
Classical and Interfaith Solidarity took place in Athens, on the campus of Zografou (MITHE
School), by the Anarchist Political Organization - Federation of Collectives. The aim of
the festival was to create a public and open political and cultural space of encounter,
communication and fermentation between the social and class struggles developed from below
and the intervention of anarchist and libertarian pretenses within them. Thus, a public
field of dialogue was formed in which struggle experiences were presented and the
participants were able to draw political conclusions from resistances that break out both
in Greece and internationally, far from each other, but they are common fronts of struggle
against common enemies, with a common perspective on social liberation. To raise the
wealth of anarchist perceptions and practices, struggles that break out at different
angles of the planet and internationalist solidarity with the insurgents of all the earth ...!
