(en) Greece, eleftheriakosxhma patras: Concentration Thursday 4/3 12M. Sq. Georgiou | BLOCK IN THE NEW ANTI-EDUCATIONAL LAW [machine translation]

Date Sun, 7 Mar 2021 08:22:28 +0200


Recently, following the educational restructuring that has taken place in recent years, the new bill on education was passed, which, among other things, provides for changes in the way of admission to higher education, introduces a student limit and establishes the creation of a university police corps. These changes are aimed at strengthening class barriers, further restricting admissions to higher education, intensifying studies, disciplining, controlling and suppressing student struggles. All this is happening in the midst of a pandemic and a traffic ban, with universities being completely wiped out as they operate through distance learning and the resistances that spring from there are quite reduced. Of course, passing bills in dead time,

The way of admission to higher education is changing radically, as now the minimum admission base is defined by the average performance of all candidates in the courses of each scientific field and by a factor determined by the university department and derived from this average. This will create a different entry base for each department, which will vary from year to year. The computer programs will now be done in two phases, where in the second one those who failed to catch the minimum admission base of the limited schools that had the opportunity to declare in the first phase (10% of the total faculties and departments of the relevant scientific field). On the one hand, this leads to the exclusion of many students from higher education and, on the other hand, it turns schools into examination centers, the feeling of competition between the students is cultivated but also the stress, as they are called to constantly prove their "value" and "ability". The exclusion of so many students from access to public higher education will force many of them to turn to private vocational schools, thus enhancing private education and profitability.

Regarding the changes in the higher education, the attendance limit is set n + 2 for the fourth-year schools and n + 3 for those that require more years of study, which will result in the mass expulsion of students. It is a clear revenge measure that comes to the already intensified pace of study, with application limits, course chains and aims to discipline students and turn the university into an incubator of graduates - workers who will be productive to ensure greater profitability. of bosses and submissive to their commands and appetites. In fact, any student who finds it difficult to cope with the increasingly intensified pace of studies is punished by expulsion. any student in this class-structured society is punished by belonging to the lower social strata and cannot cover the ever-increasing tuition costs. Any student who considers it his inalienable right to determine the pace at which he will study and the years it will take to receive his degree is punished, since their very system is what pushes many of us into the blackmailing situation of black , uninsured work to make a living so that we can study at the same time.

The central point of this bill is the issue of "safety and protection" of universities. This plan includes the controlled entry of university premises, the surveillance by cameras of both the interior and exterior of the institutions, the establishment of a "Security and Protection Committee" and a number of other reactionary provisions. The university protection group (OPPI) that is established, belongs to the Hellenic Police and has as its main responsibilities the fight against "lawlessness and delinquency" within the universities as well as the execution of patrols. At the same time, the disciplinary code concerning criminal acts within the institutions is upgraded (copies, obstruction of the proper operation of the institution, use of unlicensed facilities, etc.). The penalties provided in case of committing the above acts include from a simple reprimand to a ban on participation in the exams and even a final deletion. It is obvious that the rulers seek to transform the open and public character of the university into a closed, guarded space in which any activity not directly related to the academic function will be criminalized and banned.

The establishment of university police, face control, surveillance and control in schools, disciplinary proceedings, the abolition of asylum express the ultimate goal of the rulers which is none other than the disarmament, fortification and retreat of the student movement, so that to launch their attacks on our acquis and interests with the best possible terms and correlations. They seek to form a university sterile from every trace of political fermentation, friction and discussion among students about their problems. A university where class student unionism and any attempt to organize collective resistance as well as any attempt to challenge state and capital plans will be fully supervised and criminalized. The presence of the police in the universities and the upgrading of the sentences have as a clear goal the breaking of student squats, imposing a condition where "law and order reigns". Law and order of the market, capitalist profitability, all kinds of arbitrariness (teachers and non-teachers), discipline, intensification and control. They crave a university fully aligned with the requirements of the state and capital, a university of larger class barriers, where attendance is the prerogative of the few, the elite and the affluent, with student benefits evaporating and basic needs for food, housing and transportation relocated. fully.

Against this dystopian reality, against the sterilization of universities and the denervation of struggles inside and outside schools, against the criminalization of social and class resistance and the suppression of demonstrations, let us be inspired by the struggles of the past and catch the thread. of resistance and struggle. From the Polytechnic of 73 ', the dynamic mobilizations in 06'-07' with the law of Giannakou, and in '11 with the law of Diamantopoulou to remember that nothing was given to us, everything is won through struggles. In the face of a culture of defeatism, individualization and assignment, let us promote faith in collective struggle, solidarity and self-organization. To turn the schools into living centers of struggle, into places of collective discussion, fermentation, challenge and resistance.
