(en) Greece, rocinante: We want social structures for abused women in every neighborhood and outside the police NOW! [machine translation]

Date Tue, 20 Jul 2021 09:34:53 +0300

The barbaric and chronic abuse of the 18-year-old girl in Ilioupoli by her father and the police officer, the first of whom raped her from 11 to 17 and the second raped and extradited her for a month, brings to the surface a long sequence of major social issues, which if we do not disappear soon, people will never stop being tortured and abused, let alone us women. ---- The 18-year-old girl, when she escaped from the hell created by the policeman, had nowhere to go and to whom -of the body- to turn. The first thing she did was to desperately ask for help from anyone she met in front of her, anyone other than the police. It happened that the waitress who believed her, treated her, called the police and informed feminist organizations not to belong to that whole society that has as its guide the selfish motto "Look at your work and do not worry". But we can not leave any tortured person to his fate. What would happen if the waitress was not there? She may have just continued her torment, as the torment of many women continues as these words are being written.

The job of the police is to protect itself and the role it plays, that is, to be a lifeless, helpless, violent and immediately available group of human beings under the orders of the state and the bosses, either "legal" or "illegal". Since the abuser belonged to this ensemble, the police have nothing to do but protect themselves. He abducted a tortured woman, kept her away from social solidarity, away from legal defense and treated her as a threat and an enemy, never as a victim. For twelve hours, he kept her in the Directorate of Internal Affairs without a lawyer, while he had completed her testimony without medical treatment, which is absolutely necessary for both her health and her justification. Not even after so many hours had she been allowed access to legal aid. Instead, a kind of captivity and abduction was carried out, because she was transported to an unknown place without any information from her lawyers.

However, their "colleague" was treated with exemplary behavior. That "colleague" who had organized a modern slave market, abusing women and children, a barbarity which he boasted of wearing the T-shirt of the well-known Greek human exploitation industry during his arrest. No autopsy procedure was carried out, only a few hours after the complaint was brought and arrest after a whole day. From the state management of the case it becomes clear that the state has worked and is working hard to prevent the revelation of what the whole society finally knows: how deep is the bond between the mafia and the police and finally the state itself. Human trafficking circuits, pimping and other heinous crimes cannot exist and develop without the backs of the state. Power is what gives birth to them and they are both its creations.

In the face of this darkness that breeds fascist practices of torture and exploitation, the class feminist movement has woven a net of practical solidarity, which is a source of power and emancipation. His call for social structures on abuse, specializing in sexism, racism, violence against LGBTQI + people, in every neighborhood, is a lifelong claim because it will untie the hands of victims and especially victims of trafficking, so that not to rely only on their luck. There is a need for free and safe care structures, psychological, financial and legal, immediate and long-term by specialized staff (psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, doctors) so that any abused person has somewhere to turn and have immediate help. These structures must be outside the police and not inside it, as the Minister of Protection of Abusers, Chrysochoidis, vulgarly and hypocritically announces that he will create a department of domestic violence within the police for such incidents. By its very nature, an instrument of oppression and torture that has an organic connection with pimps and mobsters cannot undertake the protection of oppressed and abused people.

As a group of women of the Rosinande Anarcho-Syndical Initiative, we declare our full solidarity with the 18-year-old survivor of extreme misogynistic violence and call for the gathering and march against sexist hatred on Monday 12/7 at 19.00 in the square. Of National Resistance in Ilioupoli.

We demand:
- The 18-year-old should be immediately vindicated, given any support she needs completely free of charge, whether psychological, financial, or medical
- Social structures for abused women with specialized staff in sexist violence in every neighborhood and outside the police
- Free immediate and long-term psychological, financial and legal support for abused women and wider abused people
- Immediately eliminate all circuses of pimping, trafficking and human torture

Solidarity with every abused woman - Together we will dawn the day when violence in our bodies and in the body of society will become a thing of the past
