Failed attack against Greek free radio station


Translator’s intro: Radio Revolt is an unlicensed radio station in Greece which is devoted to counterinformation. It transmits from an occupied retired railway carriage in a university campus in Salonica. The station is well-known amongst the Greek radical youth, as Athens Indymedia has a permanent link to the station’s website: http://radio-revolt.org/

On 21 July 2009 the station was attacked. Here is an adapted English translation of Radio Revolt’s announcement, originally in Greek, prepared independently in solidarity:

During the morning of 21 July the occupied space where Radio Revolt is housed, the railway carriage of OSE (a Greek railway operator) in the centre of Aristotelian University’s campus in Salonica, was attacked by persons unknown with three molotov bombs. After the ‘unknown’ perpetrators attempted to attack our studio, without success, they resorted to bomb with their molotovs the WC of the radio station, and any damage done was limited within it. Our station stopped transmitting only for three hours just to allow for power to be restored, which we had cutted deliberately for safety reasons.

This attack on Radio Revolt is merely one more of the failed attempts by the state and the parastate, part of a semester-long series of attacks after December, ordered by the political and economic elite and executed by cops and fascists. Their goal is to suppress all voices of freedom, everyone who protests and resists. They seek to turn society more conservative, fascist, and xenophobic; their final aim, of course, is the establishment of terror. The police is being advertised as the new messiah, and the dogma of order and security is being presented as more necessary than ever.

Let them live in their dream: day by day the multifaceted resistance becomes more powerful, and thousands of people get their lives in their hands. The dynamic mobilisations and protests prove that all every threat manages to achieve is to make social movements more powerful.

Radio Revolt, against all of them who wish otherwise, transmits – and will carry on transmitting.

Against the mainstream media.

ARM YOUR VOICE!

Istanbul Yenikapi Rally that was realized last Sunday is an important example showing the extent of political mobilization in Turkey, happening in the last month. The rally, which was joined by five million people and the leaders of opposition parties (except HDP), showing "unity of the protectors of democracy", actually had multiple messages targeting both domestic and foreign politics. During the coup process, which can be described as the clashing of power groups inside the state, it looks like president Erdogan and AKP Government managed to talk different political groups into their "politics for coup process".

The fire that appeared in the coalmine in Manisa-Soma on 13th of May, became one of the biggest massacres in these lands. As a result of the fire, hundreds of coal miners were poisoned by intense levels of carbon monoxide. The number of workers who have died increases hour by hour. The Minister for Energy, the Minister for Labour and the Prime Misinter have tried to hide the real number of the miners who have died while declaring that “it was a sad work accident”. The Prime Minister has declared that “This kind of accident could happen anytime.” [Türkçe] [ελληνικά]

Class war and imperialism have deepened in Greece. The Greek working class has been subjected to further attacks from the local and imperialist ruling classes. To receive the latest ‘bailout’ from the IMF and the ECB, the Greek state was told by the German, French and US ruling classes to again reduce pensions, to fully privatise public utilities, and to again cut social spending and wages.

If the reaction to the police killing had been limited to skirmishes between cops and a few anarchists, however, the Greek events would have literally burned themselves out after a few days. What is interesting about the current situation is precisely how it grew into something larger, expanding from street battles to the occupation of secondary schools and university faculties, and showing not only combativeness but a sense of initiative and imagination, as in the dramatic seizure of television and radio stations by protesters who took control of the microphones and cameras...

The following article is to appear soon in "Red & Black Revolution" no.13 (magazine of the WSM, Ireland). It examines the recent evolution of Turkish society, after the 1980 coup, and how it expresses in the current conflict between the military and the Islamist parties that is nothing but the conflict within sectors of the bourgeoisie for hegemony.
