(en) Greece, Thessaloniki Local APO: Call for an anti-war demonstration on the occasion of Pompeo's arrival in Thessaloniki [machine translation]

Date Wed, 30 Sep 2020 09:10:44 +0300

The arrival of US Secretary of State Pompeo is scheduled in the coming days, with visits to Souda, Athens and Thessaloniki. This visit comes on the one hand at a special juncture in the level of transnational competition in the wider Eastern Mediterranean region, with the direct involvement of the Greek state, on the other hand is a continuation of previous contacts and developments directly related to the aspirations of the domestic bourgeoisie. ---- The last few months have been marked by an increasing escalation of transnational competition in the wider region, with the main protagonists being the Greek and Turkish states and the mutual aspirations in the race to secure the exploitation of the region's wealth-producing resources. In this context, transnational blocs of interests were formed on both sides (see Greece-Cyprus-Egypt partnership with the support of third countries and respectively Turkey-Libya) with the aim of maximizing the benefits for each formation and each state separately.

The result of this tension was the dangerous militaristic games, the continuous military exercises with the participation of various states, the overcrowding of large military forces in a limited area, the nationalist crowns from official lips on both sides of the Aegean. The last link in this chain is the announcement by the Greek state of a package of 10 billion euros for armaments programs, while at the same time the Greek state faithfully fulfills its armaments commitments towards NATO, being one of the few states that spend annually " required "-from the USA- a lot of money, to the point that for this reason it receives" praise "from the US political staff. In addition, utilizing nationalist rhetoric and frenzy,

This policy pursued by the far-right government of ND is a continuation of the policy implemented by the previous government of SYRIZA-ANEL. A policy aimed at further annexing the Greek state formation to the NATO chariot and upgrading it to a local gendarme and placeholder of NATO interests in the SE Mediterranean and the Balkans (see agreement on the name of Northern Macedonia and its accession to the SE in exchange for the aerial military surveillance of the neighboring state by the Greek), through the transformation of Greek territory into a large US military hub by assigning camps, facilities, upgrading existing ones, storing military materials, new equipment, etc.

The time that this condition is evolving finds the planet roaring with the social and class resistances that are developing. From the streets of US metropolises that have been a battleground for months since the assassination of G. Floyd, where insurgents are fighting against uniformed state and parastatal bastards (see the recent assassinations of anti-fascists A. Huber and M. Reinoelh ), forcing Trump to publicly persecute anti-fascists / anarchists, to the streets of Paris and large-scale mobilizations against the new economic and labor measures to pave the way for the covid-19 pandemic, and from the mountains of Mexico to insurgent Zapatistas up to the modern hells reserved by the states for the migrants in the Mediterranean,

Regardless of transnational rivalries, states and bosses know their real enemy against whom they are ready to put aside their individual differences and mobilize when needed. And he is none other than the oppressed who refuse to bear the chains of submission anymore and look the monster in the eyes, ready to confront him. Hence, the Turkish state, which imprisons and kills Turkish opposition fighters in Turkey, is in full agreement with the Greek state, which attacks Turkish politicians, beats them, arrests them or even deports them back to Erdogan.

In the face of this all-out attack of the state and capital, we have to oppose international solidarity and the project of social revolution. Standing against the gloom of capitalist dystopia and the slaughterhouses that states prepare for the oppressed, let us build a broad anti-war movement that hates states and capital, fighting for the true peace of humanity, the abolition of human exploitation, human exploitation. versus death.

Solidarity internationalist, social revolution all over the Earth
Solidarity the weapon of the peoples, war in the war of the bosses
Anti-war Demonstration, Monday 28/9 at 18:00, Ag. Venizelou
