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