(en) Greece, liberta salonica: Call of the Anarchist Federation in the course of the Saturday 8/9, 18:00, Kamara [machine translation]

Date Fri, 7 Sep 2018 09:32:14 +0300


Every year at the Thessaloniki International Fair, capital, through its civilian staff, sets the living conditions of the workers, the unemployed, the retired, the lower. Every year the Prime Minister comes - always with regret (!) - to announce the new steps of an all-out attack on state and capital on labor and social achievements. Every year, he promises that the measures are the latest. ---- This year, at a purely demagogic level, the country's prime minister will officially showcase the new communication invention embodied by the SYRIZA government. - ANEL, the famous "exit from the memorandums", hoping in this way SYRIZA. to extend his term of office to state-owned parties through the attempt to retrieve the pro-government's social-democratic profile of the party, even with the words of the air. All of this construction, besides cynical, is also extremely fragile. Quite simply, because it is negated by the very material reality of the downward class devaluation, which has been steadily increasing over the last 8 years. The new austerity measures may not be called "memorandums", but will continue to intensify the predatory transfer of wealth from the bottom to the top of the social pyramid. Capitalist barbarism spreads like dense darkness, condemning to poverty and submissiveness, in the long run, from the bottom. International financial supervision is to continue at least until 2060. Surveillance is not going to expire before 75% of the public debt is repaid, resulting in bloody surpluses that the working class itself is about to bear in its entirety. In addition, the privatization of public property or more simply privatizations will be held through the Hypermarket until 2114. Neither one of the 700 memorandum laws passed has been revoked or abolished, nor one of the 60,000 memorandum provisions nor one of the 300 . 000 ministerial and implementing memorandum decisions. Let us not forget, however, that all the austerity measures of recent years have been passed by both hands and other aspiring contenders of the governmental ladder, competing with each other for the unimpeded service of the interests of capital.

Memoranda not only did not go away, but the reality that we are living in the whirl of the global capitalist overaccumulation crisis requires that a situation be imposed on a continuous memorandum, intensifying the exploitation of labor and the looting of natural wealth for the purpose of ever increasing profits for our bosses. In June, the "Mid-term Financial Strategy Framework 2019-2022" was passed by the governing majority, aiming to secure surpluses of € 42 billion by 2022 (3.56% of GDP for 2018, 3.96% for 2019, 4 , 15% for 2020, 4.53% for 2021 and 5.19% for 2022). Between 2018 and 2022, direct taxes are projected to increase by 6.1%, while indirect taxes are projected to increase annually by 1.3%. Over the same period, pensions will be cut by a total of € 12 billion (2, 882 billion in 2019, 2,967 billion in 2020, 3,115 billion in 2021 and 2,918 billion in 2022). The cuts in so-called personal disputes in supplementary pensions will amount to 232 million euros per year. From 20/1/2020, the tax-free allowance will be reduced from 8636 to 5686 euros, not leaving even the most underprivileged parts of our class in cloud. The Hellenic Holding and Property Company SA (Hypermarket), which manages all participations and government assets, has been lent to lenders to repay up to 25 billion of the 86 billion loan which the Greek state took in 2015 from ESM (European Stability Mechanism), since the Greek state can not pay the amount. As expected, the repayment of the amount required by the ESM entails a new round of privatizations. Finally, auctions will be extended to debts to the state, and with changes in bankruptcy law, the way for the redemption of redemption loans to speculative funds opens and the protection of the first home, together with a series of protective provisions for debtors, is lifted. On the other hand, not respecting pretensions, banks will be recapitalised with aid of EUR 10 billion.

This year's honorable country is the USA. How else could it be once again ratified, the deeper engagement of the Greek state in NATO and the programs of economic support (support for the local bourgeoisie in reality) the IMF, where both US agencies are the most important and keen power? Greece ranks second in the ranking of the NATO countries with the largest military expenditure proportionally to their GNP. Every year, Greece's military spending is estimated at 2.4% of GDP (surpassing the 2% threshold set by the Alliance at its 2006 summit), amounting to 4.5 billion dollars. Costs for armaments are at the top of the state budget's priorities, at a time when the social majority is being exterminated by the austerity policies mandated by the memorandums. As a member of NATO and as an organic part of the chariot of Euro-Atlantic imperialism, the role of the overseer (the second after Israel) of the respective interests in the eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans has been indicated in the Greek state. This, however, means that, albeit in the alternative, the Greek state will be involved, to the extent that it owes it, to the geopolitical rivalries and warfare involving its patrons. It is certain, however, that the domestic bourgeoisie will seek to get as much as possible from the pie shared in its neighborhood. Currently,

NATO-led plans seek to "plant" military bases in the Greek territory, preparing for the upgrading of conflicts in the Middle East and the Eastern Mediterranean. At the same time, the militarization of the NATO countries is also a demonstration of power in order to tear the teeth to the Russian agent, who is the main enemy of the United States. from the BRICS axis (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa). The instability of US-Turkey relations (recently Turkey has announced that Incirlik's base will cease to serve NATO) is upgrading Greece's geostrategic importance for NATO, because NATO is now called upon to find new points for its military activities. The Andravida airbase (which took place in March 2018 in the "Iniohos") and the Araxos counterpart (there is a possibility of nuclear resettlement) will be upgraded. In Larissa, a drones base will be created, while in Alexandroupolis the construction of a helicopter base is planned. For Syros, NATO's design stipulates the conversion of the port of Ermoupolis to a strategic point where the US Navy ships will be repaired and refitted. In his recent visit to Greece, US Ambassador Jeffrey Paith said that shipyards in Neorion of Syros should be purchased by a company belonging to a NATO member state, which is why there is also interest from the US .. At the same time, talks are being made to rebuild the port of Ermoupolis to allow large ships of the armed forces of the United States to be moored. Lastly, the Ministry of Defense issued a proposal to the US Embassy to promote the construction of a large heliport in a flat islet near Kalymnos, which will serve the parking and supply of American helicopters. It is now clear in the most obvious way that the Greek state provides generous edification to the suggestions dictated by US military plans. and NATO, with the country becoming the base of the military interventions of Euro-Atlantic imperialism. the Department of National Defense has made a proposal to the US Embassy to promote the construction of a large heliport on a flat island near Kalymnos, which will serve the parking and supply of American helicopters.

What separates this year's TIF from the past is certainly the imminent massive appearance of the national torso on the road, due to the nomenclature of the neighboring country, at a time when the Republic of Macedonia is preparing to join NATO and the European Union . In the ranks of this admittedly heterogeneous nationalist crowd, he has found the opportunity to nest a discrete and organized portion of fascists, awaiting the drawing of political capital from all the masses in which they have managed to impose their political framework. The fact is that the re-emergence of the Macedonian issue has been a rare opportunity for every kind of nationalist and fascist situation to take a place in the public discourse and to try to promote its murderous political plans. The nationalist rallies in Thessaloniki and Athens served this very purpose. It was also obvious to the most naive, that the supposedly uncomplicated and non-political character of the rally, advertised with so much diligence by the media, was just a sheep that under the beast hid it - and as it turned out, it did not take him much to feel certain and to reveal his real face. Somehow, the useful idiots turned into dangerous idiots. It is obvious that several tendencies of the far right and nationalist space consider it time for a parliamentary party of the far right beyond the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn. It is also obvious that from the ideology of national unity, which seeks to instill reconciliation with class and social inequality and oppression,

The end of the total movement of the national torso and fascist frontman has so far recorded attacks on combat venues (the arrest of Libertatia occupation, attacks on the ESC School, the Free Self-managed Theater, on fans and players of the self-organized football team Progressive Toumba, the occupation of a former PIKA), deportations of the Holocaust Monument of the Jews and the Jewish cemetery, and attacks on immigrants. We can see now clearly that the organized core of these rallies is the epitome of the black reaction, especially if we take into account the anti-Semitic actions they have undertaken, the chauvinist-racialist rhetoric they are stating, generalizing it generously with conspiracy theories, but also the overt fascist anti-anarchist and anti-communist slogans that shout. All of this simply complements the overall fascist (hence incompetent enemy of the proletarian masses) profile of the organized front of the rallies, trying to take root in the public sphere. It is worth mentioning, however, that aiders in the theme of nationalism, as shaped by rallies for the Macedonian issue, are amongst others bourgeois parties that oppose the search for votes within a conservative-reactionary audience, the church, the Russian factor (see bribery right-wing and metropolitan bishops by Russian diplomats) and various pieces of the local bourgeoisie, thus confirming,

In this year's TIF, it is imperative to set up collective resistance class defenses against all the aggressive peaks of the urban camp: state and capitalist barbarism, war and fascism. The oppressed and exploited, in whatever part of the map we are, do not have to divide anything between us. We must perceive the community of our class interests and on this basis organize our counter-attack against those who oppress us and live by our labor. We are not going to fight for the interests of local and international bosses, we will not fight for any homeland nor turn the gun barrels to the proletarians of other countries, from which they try to divide us with any artificial means the masters, employing every available solvent of class consciousness (nation, border, religion). In the event of war the world proletariat will be what will be forced to initiate the war machines of the capitalists by paying the price to the lives of people in our class. Today, it is necessary to set up an anti-war movement on the basis of internationalist, class solidarity.

We recognize that at this stage social and class resistances are anemic and unrelated to the circumstances. We definitely look for the causes for the decline was the posting of social consensus from the reformism of SY.RIZ.A. in micro-urban mentality of delegation and trust to parliamentarianism in diataxiki retreat that constitutes the narrative of national unity, but also to the weaknesses of the anarchist / anti-authoritarian itself, as well as the wider labor movement. It certainly can not accept as anarchists, is the "end of history", the final victory of the market economy, the triumph of capitalism, which propagandize the establishment voices of urbanism at every opportunity, like war slaughterhouses are preparing sovereigns, but also the fascism that it has,

We therefore have to change the power correlations in the present social and class conflict. Our global response to the increasing state and capitalist barbarism, the war plans of the sovereign and the fascist threat, must be the global social revolution with the aim of unleashing the slave layers from the slumber of state power and the capitalist exploitation of human labor. Collectively and unconditionally, we must fight for the needs of the oppressed and exploited, for the extreme and non-class society.

WE OFFER COLLECTION AND REPORTING, CLASSICAL DEPARTMENTS AGAINST THE COMPLETE LOST ATTACKING OF MAJORITY

AGAINST STATE AND CAPITALISTICITY, WAR AND NATIONALITY

ORGANIZATION AND RACE FOR SOCIAL RESPONSE, FREEDOM COMMEMORATION, ANARCHY

WE WILL NOT FIGHT FOR THE INTERESTS OF OUR AFFIDENTS - WE WILL FIGHT AGAINST THEM
