(en) Greece, Invitation of the Anarchist Federation to the demonstration on the opening day of the 85th TIFF. | Saturday 11/9, 18:00, Kamara [machine translation]

In recent months, the New Democracy government has intensified its predatory attack on the social base, taking advantage of the Covid-19 pandemic and anemic social class resistance. In a short period of time we saw the conquests that were won through hard and bloody struggles being lost, as a result of which we went back many decades to a century back in terms of rights. The culmination is the official abolition of the 8-hour period, the introduction of unpaid overtime, the consolidation of individual employment contracts, the reduction of strikes and the criminalization of militant trade union action. The government is currently working on the next blow to the education community with a new reactionary bill, as well as the privatization of supplementary insurance.

During all this time, the state has proved once again that it cares for the interests of the ruling class. The disintegrated public health system, cuts in public spending on welfare, the gradual privatization of health, speculation and rampant competition in the pharmaceutical industry have cost the lives of many poor people who are excluded daily from their benefits due to their class status. are public, free and free to access to ensure a dignified life for all. The ND government has made the policy of rescuing and strengthening big business a priority, fulfilling the wishes of the owners of large clinics and the bosses of the tourism industry. He stuffed the regime media with money, to incessantly propagate the narrative of individual responsibility and to lick the government and its executives, in order to obscure the criminal responsibilities of the deeply class policy pursued by the government, to manipulate and incriminate society. In addition, it spent a large part of the annual state budget on armaments expenditures that further deepen the Greek state's involvement in imperialist rivalries and war preparations, while in the interior priority was given to recruiting police officers and EPOs, upgrading and expanding its equipment. Putting society on ice with health-related lockdowns, at a time when people are crowded every day, in the absence of infrastructure and security measures, in workplaces and MMMs,

More than 1.2 million acres were burned this summer, entire ecosystems and public property were destroyed, thousands of animals were killed in fires, two people were killed and dozens were injured. The state took care to cut the funds that would go to the fire brigade and completely neglected the taking of forest fire protection measures, while it passed an anti-environmental law which provides a lot of facilities for more direct and flexible licensing of investments related to green development and energy. The effectiveness of the social self-organization and self-action of the fire victims, the volunteers and the solidarity surpassed the incompetence, indifference and obstruction of the state mechanism, which is responsible for this incalculable catastrophe. He is responsible not only for the irresponsible management of the issue, but also because he is a key pillar of the capitalist system that subjugates nature to the needs of capital and its profitability, plundering the natural environment, to pave the way for profitable business activities and investments. It is obvious that the capitalist mode of production, including the so-called green growth, is opposed to the viability of the planet.

Incidents of abuse and homicide have risen sharply. This was undoubtedly supported by the many months of confinement of victims with their abusers in their homes, the inadequacy or absence of mechanisms and infrastructure to support women, the indifference and many times the concealment of incidents by state auxiliary mechanisms. At the very least, public denunciations of such incidents and their political imprinting on the streets through demonstrations and protest rallies are a positive legacy for the feminist movement and women's struggles. At the root of the problem, however, is patriarchy, which is inextricably linked to capitalism, as it is a key parameter for the separation of the working class. the cultivation of inequalities within it and the reproduction of the capitalist system itself. However, the government also passed a law on the mandatory custody of children, which will inevitably perpetuate and reproduce the phenomena of domestic violence and abuse, since women and children will have no way out.

As the pandemic progresses we see the birth and empowerment of a dark and irrational pole with apparent far-right political hegemony. This pole stood around the axis of anti-vaccination and gathered in its lines a diverse and orderly audience. Without prejudice to the class policies of the government and the system it serves, this reactionary ego has made the self-determination of the body and individual liberties its flag, seen, however, through a distorted prism purely petty-bourgeois and individualistic. The backlash of the government and its controlled committee of infectious diseases has fueled skepticism and denial of vaccination to a large section of society. This forms a convenient adversary for the government, which will become the scapegoat that will disorientingly wash away the deterioration of the public health system. After all, a constant requirement of capital is the gradual privatization of public welfare structures that were secured through the struggles of the working class. Because, even health under capitalism is considered a commodity and a source of profit for business groups. On the one hand, we are against compulsion as an extortionate measure involving social exclusion and dismissal, on the other hand, we recognize that shielding the public health of the community in the midst of a pandemic is a highly collective issue, which therefore requires empathy and response. We must not, however, leave the slightest room for the development of a fascist movement,

In this treaty, the dipole of bipartisanship and the change of government is revived through the assignment of the parliamentary elections. The logic of the lesser evil returns, vain hopes and false promises are cultivated again. Trade unionism has become largely subservient to parties, governments, and bosses, and has gone astray in defending workers' interests. The bourgeois parties evangelize the humanization or rationalization of capitalism, trying to deceive us with a supposed reform of a system structurally based on economic and social inequalities. However, the mass, ruthless, direct democratic, organized class movement of the oppressed and exploited in the direction of a total conflict with the state and capital is absent from the scene, which burden us with the burdens of the crisis of the capitalist system, raising the indicators of poverty, unemployment, constantly degrading the working and living standards of many, causing wars with millions of dead, uprooting and destruction of nature. The structures and formations that the oppressed and the exploited have at our disposal are still weak, so that the scales of the class struggle may turn to us. But there is no other way to social and class emancipation than to realize our class interests and our class rivals, trust in our own strengths, solidarity and mutual aid, collectivization and organization in the workplace, neighborhoods, schools, schools, the organization in anti-fascist networks and anarchist political collectives. We are the majority, we are the ones who drive the cogs of capitalist production, depriving ourselves of the wealth we produce and abusing a small parasitic minority. It is in our interest to overthrow this unjust, exploitative and oppressive system. Our struggles must turn in this direction, first achieving the small victories necessary to improve our working and living conditions in the existing system, until its revolutionary overthrow and the building of a free and egalitarian, restrained and classless society.
