Against State, Capitalist, Patriarchal Barbarism, Repression and Social Emphasis ---- 2 YEARS LATER OR WE DON'T FORGET - WE DO NOT FORGIVE THE MURDER OF ZAK KOSTOPOULOS / ZACKIE OH! ---- CALLS: ---- Athens: SUNDAY 20 SEPTEMBER, 18:00, IN GLADSTONOS ---- Patra: MONDAY 21 SEPTEMBER, 18:30, GEORGE SQUARE ---- Thessaloniki: MONDAY SEPTEMBER 21, 18:30, STATUE OF VENIZELOS ---- September 21, 2018: Zak Costopoulos is murdered at noon in the center of Athens, in Omonia. Trapped inside a jewelry store where he has taken refuge, while a little earlier he was shouting "help" in the street, he is lynched by the shop owner and a fascist who maintains a real estate office in the area. The two of them kick him furiously in the head, while he is trying helplessly to free himself, while a crowd is around them. The police arrive to complete the crime - they hit him covered in blood and fell to the ground, arrested him, handcuffed him and dragged him to the street. He is taken to the hospital tied up and dead.

In Jacques' face they see a poor, excluded, outcast, a user, a potential thief - a life that the state capitalist and patriarchal system repeatedly prescribes as a "threat" to order and security, a life that costs it negligibly , which methodically legitimizes its extermination. Zack's killers do not hesitate to try him and sentence him to death "by taking the law into their own hands", moving within the framework of the dominant orders as parastatal lackeys - a thief-pawnbroker who feeds on the despair of others, a declared fascist and the uniformed murderers and torturers of ELAS.

Because the violence they committed has the cover of official law, the support of the institutional barbarism of the regime: the demonization of poverty, the hunting and punishment of the weak in the class and social hierarchy, the sanctity of property, so as to safeguard its interests domination and its social reproduction. And it is this violence organized from above by the Power that allows them to kill intimidated, because they move within the framework of the dominant orders as parastatal lackeys.

It is the state-capitalist-patriarchal system itself that targets those who resist and those who characterize surplus populations in the time of its deep crisis, suppressing, cultivating fear and promoting social emphasis: racist pogroms under the guise of covering the police of Shajhat Lukman and Pavlos Fyssas by the Golden Dawn Nazis, concentration camps and drowning of immigrants and refugees at the border, deaths of prisoners in prisons and police stations, workers in the ranks of mercenary slavery, deportation and confinement of women, deportation and confinement , launching a repressive campaign against the anarchists and those who are fighting in general,cooperation with all kinds of mafias and drug mafias at the same time with the policies of impoverishment and repression of users.

The completion of the two years since the assassination of Jacques, in view of the beginning of the trial of his murderers, which is scheduled for October 21, comes in an environment of outbreak of the covid19 pandemic and intensification of state and capitalist attack on society. From the beginning of a new round of looting of the social base with the main peaks being the further devaluation of labor, the practical abolition of social security, the continuation of privatizations, to the restructuring of the education system and the criminalization of trade union action. From the perpetuation of the Emergency Regime through the suppression and subjugation of the social and class movements and especially of the anarchist-anti-authoritarians, the evacuations of occupied areas of struggle, the police occupation of entire areas until the prohibition of demonstrations and the general upgrade of the legal arsenal to the detriment of militants. From the escalation of the war against refugees and immigrants, the attempt to demonize them, their disappearance from the public sphere, their confinement in concentration camps to the looting of the physical world through the activation of the machines of capitalist development that will destroy local societies, mountains, rivers, seas, lakes, forests in the name of profit and full enforcement on man and nature.

State repression is today a dominant component of state strategy. This military operation against those who are fighting is part of the decades-long systematic effort on the part of the Greek state to subdue social and class resistance and impose submission.

Zak's killers, the police, the judiciary, the media who rushed to cover up and justify the murder, constructing consensus, misinforming, presenting him as dangerous, dogging his life and identity as an HIV-positive member of the LGBTQI community activists, as well as those who applaud the authoritarian barbarism, identifying with the interests of the powerful, in fact represent what the most anti-social has to do with the decay of the world of Power.

On the other hand, the thousands who protested against Jacques's assassination, demanding visibility in public and blocking cannibalistic rhetoric, those who in any way refuse to consent and submit to the prevailing project of social cannibalism in the cannibalistic world. to defend what belongs to them, all those who demonstrated in Chania and Thessaloniki for the repressive attacks of the state against the squatters, all those who, in defiance of the checks, rebuild libertatia 3 years after its arson by the fascists, all those who put up embankments in state repression and fight against the regime of exploitation and subjugation, represent the most promising thing this society has to show: solidarity, rebellion,the prospect of a social revolution, for a world that will fit many worlds.

As anarchists we fight for the intensification of social and class resistance, with the aim of overthrowing the political and economic bosses responsible for exploitation, oppression, poverty, misery, social cannibalism. With our weapon of solidarity, we stand against false divisions and the fear that power constantly reproduces. We are fighting to overcome the imposed way of organizing society by the state and capital.
