(en) Greece, APO, Thessaloniki - land & freedom: Our solidarity to tear down borders, fences & concentration camps! (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 8 Sep 2022 08:30:27 +0300

In the early hours of 8/18, a violent operation was carried out by the Greek police, specifically by MAT and EKAM forces, in the camp of Eleonas, in the context of the previous decision of the Municipality of Athens and the Ministry of Migration Policy for the gradual evacuation of the camp, and the displacement of immigrants outside Athens. At the same time, on an island on the northern border between Greece and Turkey, there were 39 refugees trapped and helpless for many days, while the Greek and Turkish states were demonstrably indifferent to these people, throwing the ball at each other for their rescue. 3 dead refugees washed up on the shores near Chios, two of whom were handcuffed before being thrown into the sea. The shipwreck in the south of Rhodes already counts 50 missing, while in Kythira, around 180 immigrants and refugees were held for 2 days under the sun, without the slightest suspicion of shade. Maria, a 5-year-old girl from Syria died from a scorpion sting on a rock island, after she was repatriated along with about 40 other refugees & migrants. In a context of complete obsolescence, not only were no rescuers found, despite the mortal danger to the life of a small child, but after her death, her body remained buried, in water for preservation.

Power kills. Its eternal conditions are exploitation and death. All policies aim at the intensity of poverty, impoverishment, the consolidation of social cannibalism among the exploited, the lubenization of resistances and subjects, the strengthening of the regime of exception for the "surplus" populations, the erecting of walls against the interior and external enemy. In Greece, as in all of Europe and in the USA. and everywhere in the world states and governments let us know for the thousandth time that human life has absolutely no value if you are a poor worker, a refugee or a member of a minority. The lives of the oppressed are sacrificed on the altar of capitalist profiteering, which in order to continue the cycle of exploitation unhindered needs state terrorism.

The deplorable living conditions in Kara Tepe, on Lesbos and in all the concentration camps throughout the territory, where people are forced to live in confinement, without electricity, heating and running water, crammed into tents, their prolonged incarceration in detention centers with under the pretext of the pandemic, the complete lack of medical care and any other prevention regarding the measures to avoid the spread of covid-19, their continuous isolation from the centers of the metropolises and society itself and the suppression of any resistance either with the violence of the MAT or through the terrorism of pushbacks and deportations once again make manifest the most obvious: the management of migration flows is a management of extermination and the state holds the monopoly of violence either against the immigrants or against to the sympathizers and to anyone who tries to raise his head against the murderous pro drops of it. The horror of the concentration camps, where even the rudimentary infrastructure to cover basic needs is absent and the permanent forced isolation of these people constitute a clear state-capitalist crime against humanity.

The above is not an unprecedented event, but a permanent situation in the management of the lives of refugees and immigrants in recent years. The concentration camps are the most characteristic example of the application of the exemption regime. In these places, human life has absolutely no value, as the most discredited part of the population, the invisibles of this society are deprived not only of basic benefits and rights, such as decent living conditions, care, education and even feeding, but also the very right to live. This situation, in Greece as well as in all the European countries receiving refugees and immigrants, is now the established (and legally established) management of people who are judged to be surplus within the capitalist system. People without papers, without names and finally without lives try to escape the horrors of war and poverty and die, trying to win back some of the dignity and life that the brutality of power, whether it drops bombs or builds hell, has robbed them of.

From our side, solidarity knows neither borders nor time limits. It is permanent, practical and not trapped in any kind of divisions (refugees - immigrants).
No solution can be temporary since the problem did not appear now but has been created for years by the countries that manage the world's wealth. The organization of the oppressed around the world is the only one that can overthrow domination and ensure humane and dignified living conditions. Social solidarity between oppressed foreigners or locals is our weapon against the exploiters. We organize and fight together with immigrants for a society of equality and freedom. We are fighting together with immigrants and refugees to stop the deportations, to close the concentration camps, to establish the conditions for life, work and residence with dignity for every person in need.

Solidarity, common struggle and common life.
