(en) Greece, anarchist-federation: Call for support for the nationwide mobilization against garbage incineration Saturday 26/6, 18:30 outside the Volos Hospital

Date Thu, 1 Jul 2021 08:57:43 +0300


In 2015, the cement company AGET Iraklis (of the French-Swiss multinational Lafarge-Holcim) received the permit, to proceed with the incineration of 200,000 tons of garbage (RDF) per year, as well as medical waste. Incineration of waste containing RDF and SDF releases into the air substances whose inhalation can cause serious diseases, such as cancer or genetic mutations. AGET is a profitable company that enjoys political and financial support from official domestic and international institutions. The regional council of Thessaly and the Ministry of Environment gave the green light for the operation and the mayor of Volos, Archimandrite Achilleas Beos, has taken on the role of stifling and slandering the social resistance against the burning of waste.

Alternative energy and the so-called "green growth" are a key strategic axis of business activity and profitability for capital. In the same direction, the European Union provides generous funds for such investments. That is why, after all, he congratulates AGET for its "work"... In the face of profit, the capitalists do not take into account either the destruction of the ecosystem or the health and lives of people. They are even being helped by investment-friendly laws, such as the anti-environmental law passed last March, which speeds up approvals for "green development" projects and effectively abolishes environmental controls.

The society of Volos, however, resists, demanding a decent life, against the polluting and harmful burning of garbage. The same is done by the residents of Stagiates, Pelion, who are fighting for the defense of Krya Vrysi, the public and community water supply source of the village, which has been targeted by privatization. This struggle of the people of Magnesia is being attempted to persistently and in a coordinated manner suspend the state and the parastate. But the solidarity, the massive and militant character of their struggle will win!

Self-organization, solidarity and the relentless struggle of those below are the only way to secure victories against the state and capital that plot and underestimate our daily lives. The rulers are afraid of the realization of our collective strength and the possibilities that our group creates, that is why they want to terrorize us by any means. But as long as we manage to move forward united, organized and militant, they will retreat.

We call for support for the nationwide mobilization against the burning of garbage and we support the block of the Coordination of Collectivities of Volos. We are strengthening the community resistance and the struggle of the people of Magnesia. We honor the memory of the social activist Vassilis Mangos, who was tortured by the uniformed bastards of ELAS after the end of last year's demonstration and ended a few days later.

DO NOT ALLOW THE INDICTION OF NATURE TO THE INTERESTS OF CAPITAL

Looting vs. NATURE, STRUGGLE FOR LIFE, EARTH AND FREEDOM

NATIONWIDE MOBILIZATION AGAINST GARBAGE BURNING:
SATURDAY 26/6, 18:30 OUTSIDE VOLOS HOSPITAL
