(en) Greece, APO - landand & freedom: Chania-Rosa Nera * "A cuckoo does not bring spring" * [machine translation]

Date Mon, 14 Jun 2021 09:50:07 +0300

Reprint of the text released after the recapture of Rosa Nera ---- If this text has reached your hands it means that the courtyard on Kastelli Hill has reopened. Today at 5pm the first open assembly to organize, collectively and without leaders, experts and traders of hope, how we want to live. ---- An open call to continue the fight against the hotelization and commercialization of the Hill, since Belvedere together with the political staff of the country does not seem to back down despite the reaction of the society of Chania. ---- We connect our struggle for a free and open yard for all, with the struggle for access to a decent and quality health and education system, without exclusions. We link our struggle with the struggle of the working class against the new anti-labor law, which brings even greater profits to the bosses while imposing even greater exploitation and poverty, discipline and individualism. With their wives and children, who are literally threatened by the new law on co-custody. With immigrants and refugees living in confinement long before quarantine, experiencing racism and intolerance. With the struggle of free people defending nature with their bodies, before a forest burns and wind turbines grow, before a gorge becomes a landfill, before all beauty for profit is dissolved. With the people of the arts threatened by the people of the cements. With the oppressed and insurgents in every corner of the earth fighting for a society of freedom and solidarity, equality and justice.

We claim our right to move and sit in public, without cops, without fear of control and repression. Do not have to pay to enjoy the view from the "balcony", the shade from a tamarisk (there are not many left in Chania), the sunset. Let us have the floor and the responsibility for the spaces that exist.

We claim, specifically this place to become again a place of freedom and struggle for life. Because only in this way will we prevent its hotelization-commercialization. Because only if it passes into the hands of society will there be parity in the decision that will be made for its future. Those who are official and unofficial, talking about the future of Kastelli Hill, did not count any insignificant person in this society as their equal interlocutor.

So that the rich do not get rich and the poor die, so that the perpetrators do not pretend to be the victims, so that the public does not become private and life becomes a vast garbage dump, we open the yard, seeking to "open" the city and our hearts. To enliven our neighborhoods and public spaces, with respect for the "other", understanding of what we do not understand and solidarity with those who need it.

Far from any kind of property relations, we believe that the Hill belongs to every person who will potentially exploit it. To every person who lives in this city. Its history has shown that only when it does not belong to anyone can it belong to everyone.

We choose to open today the door of the courtyard of Rosa Nera, guarded by police on the orders of the government and the Indivisible. We call on the whole world to come together to decide on the future of Kastelli Hill, to discuss the future of this city and to jointly organize our resistance against the gloom of the day.

Open assembly at 17:00 in the courtyard of Rosa Nera.

* When spring comes a swallow flies in the sky, passes by houses and warns of the coming of the season when flowers bloom. The cuckoo comes along, sitting on a branch, chirping. Some have doubts, but little by little more and more arrive and their chanting leaves no other room.

Black wheels bloom a life.
