A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

The phenomenon of globalization is not something new. We can
talk about globalization since the roman or the byzantine age.
Today the ruling ones, united more than ever, after the union
of regimes in 1989, continue their crimes against humanity,
bombing people, imposing poverty onto lots of social groups,
destroying nature more than ever, preparing new technological
monsters, clones etc.

The summits of the ruling ones try to present the state’s power,
the bosses’ wealth and their unity against social movements.
They declare with excess hypocrisy that they accept the dialogue
with social movements, but only in the frames of costless claims.
Anyway, they usually give a piece of bread in exchange for their
anti-human projects.

More specifically, the greek presidency ending in June (then all
the summits will take place in Brussels) is manifestating itself
updated, trying to complete the European integration with other
10 states of eastern europe and continue the building of
europe-fortress which will reject immigrants and other oppressed
people. The certifications the greek state aims to be granted is
for its contribution to the “was against terrorism”, since it
imported the “anti-terrorist” (F-type, F.I.E.S. type) prisons in
Greece for the imprisoned people being accused of members of the
“Revolutionary Organization November 17th” and the “Revolutionary
Popular Struggle”, legalizing interrogations under drugs and virtual

Their goal is to avoid living their worst nightmare: the full
expression of social rage against the state. And that rage has
been clearly declared in Amsterdam, Prague, Quebec, Naples, Nice,
Athens, Goetheborg, Genoa, Evian. In all those mobilizations against
authoritarian summits people lived the state’s and its mechanisms’
terrorist tactics, Westberg’s shooting, Carlos Juiliani’s (and not
only) murder in Genoa, choked among tear-gas and various poisonous
substances spread by cops, got beaten and humiliated by the pigs.
BUT they are still fighting ignoring cameras, water cannons, laws,
prosecutions, arrests, imprisonments.

Anarchists participate in those mobilizations considering them as
another field of the social war, and not just against capitalism.
Without, of course, having any illusions about national, international
or regional mobilizations, without condemning, without putting an
hierarchy or abort means of social intervention, without aiming
political profit. With a vision and proposal: the global liberation
of society and the abolishment of state and authority.

The participation of anarchists in all those mobilizations is
obviously important, taking into mind their contribution to declare
human resistance against global authorities. It is a fact that
through those mobilizations there is a chance given to other people
fighting for freedom, not necessarily anarchists and anti-authoritarians,
to realize the necessity to organize their dreams offensively and reject
the syndicalist and left fairy-tales.
