(en) Greece, apo: Against the vengeful expulsions of the state [machine translation]

Date Sat, 9 Jan 2021 13:08:14 +0200


On 6/12/20, the day of remembrance of the state assassination of Alexandros Grigoropoulos and the anti-government uprising that followed the assassination of a 15-year-old student in 2008, the state under the guise of a pandemic enforces a total ban on all gatherings and events throughout the country. the universal ban he tried to impose a few weeks earlier, on November 17th. Among the hundreds of extraditions and arrests that take place that day, both in Exarchia and in various other areas, is that of the anarchist of French descent Errol. The accusation leveled at him is that of spreading the virus. Errol is being held in GADA and then in Petrou Ralli in miserable health conditions, a fact that demonstrates the pretentious nature of the accusations made by the state on the occasion of the pandemic. A few days later, he was transferred to an immigrant concentration camp in Amygdaleza, having been described as a "public danger" because of his political activities as an anarchist, facing the threat of deportation from the Greek state. On Saturday, December 19, the state carried out the threat of deportation, effectively abducting Errol, telling him that he would be checked for coronavirus, eventually taking him to the airport, where he was forcibly placed inside the plane.

In the special condition of the pandemic, it has become clear that the state can and does not want to offer health or freedom to the oppressed. On the contrary, it has become apparent in every possible and improbable way that "the most a state can have is the police" (A. Kamy). The brutal repression in any field of social and class war, the eruption of armaments spending on the mercenary army to suppress bourgeois democracy and the state, the persecution and imprisonment of militants, the anti-anarchist campaign launched by the far-right government ND in the face of the effort to crush the social and class resistance, the upgrade of the legal arsenal of the state, the new laws for further dissolution of education, intensification of the plunder of nature and the bleeding of the social wealth produced by the exploiters of greedy capital in combination with the attack on acquired rights such as "freedom of assembly", consist in one direction: that of preventive counter-insurgency. They brutally suppress any attempt to erect an embankment against the onslaught of modern state and capital totalitarianism, turning their attention to the uprisings that are erupting around the world, in Chile, the United States, France and elsewhere.

In this context, the state tried on both 17/11 and 6/12 to prevent any voice of resistance trying to stand against it, creating a more suffocating condition for the movement. A bet, which with the courage, determination and stubbornness of the contestants finally lost. The state narrative that would force everyone, under the pretext of the pandemic, to submit to state demands could not stand. The militancy of hundreds of comrades across the country managed to break the state bans of the Ministry of Civil Protection and its uniformed murderers. Among those people who chose on December 6 not to submit to state orders was the anarchist Errol, who, due to both his political identity and his status as a citizen of another country, was for the state the example of compliance that other competitors, locals and foreigners, had to see. By creating an accomplished event, such as the expulsion of an anarchist from the country, on the one hand, an attempt is made to exemplify those who rise up and fight against the state, and on the other hand, to press for persecution that will follow in the future.

It is becoming clear that the state will exhaust all possible means in order to suppress the struggling sections of society. In this direction, it further equips the arsenal of means at its disposal to address the social base. An arsenal that includes from brutal repression with wood, torture, arrests, persecution, imprisonment and deportation to more "sophisticated" means such as the intensification of surveillance and control, as well as excessive financial fines and guarantees, targeting psychological and physical extermination of the world of struggle and its structures (evacuations of squatters, attacks on self-managed areas). From this attack, whether it is the concentration camps of immigrants such as Kara Tepe and the hell of Petros Ralli that are stacked in inhuman conditions of immigrants, whether it is the repression on the road experienced by the people who are fighting and the attacks on their structures, the rage of the rulers for the total domination of their domination is obvious. In the face of the frustration reserved for us by the rulers, we have to oppose the path of collective struggle, the path of resistance to the state and capital. We stand in solidarity with militants who are being persecuted by the state, such as Errol. We are constantly fighting for a world of freedom, equality and solidarity, which will flourish over the wreckage of the rotten world of power. we have to oppose the path of collective struggle, the path of resistance to the state and capital.
