(en) Greece, APO: Rally-Demonstration of solidarity with the Palestinian people - Thursday 21 March 2024 at 19.00, Venizelos Statue (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 8 Apr 2024 10:35:55 +0300

On Saturday, October 7, a surprise military strike, the preparation of which was undertaken by the Islamist Hamas, took place in southern Israel, when the organization's gunmen stormed settlements, overcoming the wall that Israel has built on the border with Gaza, while also attacking a music festivals held in the area, killing civilians and capturing hundreds of people. This was followed by some gruesome documents showing many of the brutalities suffered by those who were captured or in other cases the violent death of certain individuals.
These images quickly reached the world's television receivers and began to be shown in an attempt to isolate the specific event from the general issue that has been developing in the region for the last 75 years and at its center is the continuous and unstoppable occupation of the Palestinian territories by its state Israel, the multi-year total blockade of the Gaza Strip, as well as Israel's intensifying settlement operations in various areas, mainly in the West Bank. But as much as they cause logical disgust, these images are nothing more than the derivative of a barbarism that must end, that of the occupation of the territories and the genocide of the Palestinian people.
The fact that the Palestinian people are the weakest link in this continuing chain of violence which is a product of military occupation cannot be changed by the fact that Hamas seems to have upgraded its military power. We, as anarchists, do not justify anything that goes beyond our own value code in the way and means we use in the battle against a stronger and better equipped enemy, while the ideal and goals of any politico-religious organization find us opposed, yet we consider that we have nothing to apologize to those who, with unimaginable hypocrisy, shed tears only for the victims of their allies, while turning a blind eye to the massacres of civilians, the bombing of hospitals, the blockade and the policy of apartheid supported by Israel against the Palestinians people for decades. And they happen to be the powerful of the world again: the US government, NATO, the EU, all the countries of the West, Greece and with them all the known bastards of the far right, who put aside for now their real and abysmal anti-Semitism, just because Israel is a strong pole in the geopolitical system and they are investing in new fears by promoting a modern anti-Islamism.
Israel is an internationally recognized state, its citizens are normal citizens and has the support of the most powerful coalitions of military and political power on the planet, while the Palestinians (especially in Gaza) are an unrecognized body politic, whose inhabitants are considered in the category of the "killable population". The horrific statements of the Israeli Defense Minister that the residents of Gaza are animals are nothing more than a prelude to genocide and ethnic cleansing, as can be seen from the course of the military conflicts. The new alliance in the government of Israel between the right and the extreme right intensifying settlements and displacements is shaping, as it has full force, new impasses leading with mathematical precision to another bloodbath. The universal despair and the need of all homogeneous political bodies for collective dignity also leads to the logic of the Resistance until the end.
In addition, the criminal tying of Greece, as a country that plays the role of the first guide in all the plans of the Euro-Atlantic Coalition, the USA and NATO, the absolute identification and alliance with Israel, which reached the unheard of ridiculousness of a Greek prime minister attempting to visit a war zone, lead the country down very dangerous war paths, while leaving the social base exposed to the just struggle of the Palestinian people, eroding whatever bridges of solidarity and support the country had historically formed.
Today, three and a half months later, according to an announcement by the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the dead in the Gaza Strip amount to 23,843, of which the number of students killed is 4,327, while another 7,819 have been injured. Gaza's health system has already collapsed while health and humanitarian aid workers are unable to work due to the clashes with many of them losing their lives. At the same time hunger is being used as a weapon against the Palestinian people with the food system collapsing and access to basic resources being cut off.

We call on the whole world, workers, students, progressive citizens and those who can understand that we cannot remain idle in the face of a new genocide that is currently unfolding live in front of our eyes. The cry of the Jewish protester in London at the beginning of the war that when we say Holocaust again we mean against anyone, let it be a guide to the Peace that can exist through real justice, the total liberation of peoples from nationalism, religion, racism and intolerance.

- Withdrawal of Israeli occupation forces from Palestine.
- To lift the blockade in Gaza. Free access to electricity, water, food & medical care.
- No military ground or other operations in Gaza. To oppose the policies of extermination of the Palestinian people.
- Stop the settlements and apartheid against the Palestinians
- Support for those fighting against the death policy in Israel. Strength in the voices of resistance against the authoritarian far-right Netanyahu regime. Solidarity with conscientious objectors to conscription in Israel
