(en) Greece, rocinante: We will not remain spectators in the plunder of nature and life - All in the Concentration at 20.00 [Traduction automatique]

Date Sun, 15 Aug 2021 15:22:24 +0300

Call of the Rosinande Anarcho-Syndical Initiative to the demonstration in defense of the environment and solidarity with the victims and those affected by the Constitution, on Monday 9/8 at 20.00. ---- It is not just these six nightmarish days that nature is being plundered, that the lives of humans and animals are being devalued. In fact, there has never been a real and meaningful strategy internationally for the protection and enhancement of natural wealth, for the harmonious coexistence of humans and the rest of the natural environment. Capitalism sees nature as an obstacle to its vision of the absolute domination of profitability over every living thing. This is the only reason why there is an environmental crisis and climate change.

The Mitsotakis government simply follows this individualistic and short-sighted -finally- capitalist ideology, placing as a priority of its policy the development of Capital, in which the movements for natural protection, not only do not fit, but are judged as harmful, as wasteful. In the last 15 years, two fiery catastrophes have occurred in Greece with almost 200 dead, tens of thousands of burned land and animals throughout the territory. The issues of climate change, fires as a natural phenomenon that is intensifying, the anti-environmental mentality of citizens, is also not something new, which needs to be analyzed from scratch. All the above are facts, known to all Greek governments. However, the choices to deal with them are drawn from the same core, that of capitalism.

The Greek state has given 40 million to the police, 82 million to the media and billions to Rafale and frigates. The forest services received only 1.7 million for firefighting projects, which are not only the purchase of planes, water vehicles and firefighters, actions that are considered elementary and did not take place either. On the contrary, this year alone we had a reduction of 4,000 firefighters and the equipment is at least 10 years old. The starting point of firefighting is prevention, having already experienced millions of victims. But how to take preventive steps when there is not even a forest registration yet, that is, there is no forest map because the investors who have invested in them are objecting? How also to take preventive steps when all environmental laws, culminating in 2020,

If we want to save what can be saved, we must be completely against every policy, perception and movement that destroys society as a whole, the environment and every living being. It is the State and Capital, and on the other hand we are the ones who destroy our biosystem, burn our homes, devalue our lives, stack them in containers and ships, indefinitely, give us pocket money and tell us to rebuild it. We are the ones who live in the places that are being destroyed and we know how to rebuild them. It is no coincidence that the magnificent social solidarity of the fire victims, firefighters and volunteers happened in a flash and exceeded dozens of times the state coverage of needs in both materials and money.

The Anarcho-Syndicalist Initiative participates and invites to the demonstration on Monday 9/8 at 20.00 in Syntagma, so that we do not remain spectators in the plunder of our nature and life for another year, to give the battle of battles to protect the environment, to create a complete proposal of harmonious coexistence of people and nature, an ecological, social transformation into production, consumption and organization of collective life.

We demand: -

Abolition of every anti-environmental law of the last 25 years that destroys natural wealth, allows any intervention anywhere and everywhere in the name of development and the "public interest".

-Strategic plan and immediate measures to prevent and deal with fires. Unified body and planning of forest firefighting and forest protection, specialized studies and recruitment of staff with permanent contracts and full employment rights.

-Immediate and substantial compensation to the victims of the areas destroyed by the fires.

-Social organization against the plunder of nature by Capital and the State and participation in the global movement for climate change.

-Life and nature will win!
