Creditors and States are nothing if we become everything

To clarify my position I am not with SYRIZA neither following any dappled shade "Europhiles". I am resolutely and unequivocally against Europe of creditors, fascists, butchers of every human dignity, regardless which political party they belong and any misleading reason they articulate.

However, during these critical, decisive moments, not only for Greece, but for Europe and for the whole world -as the whole issue and the point has reached is a creation of capitalism- has nothing to do with the referendum itself. It has to do with the actual subject which was absent from any negotiating framework during these five months - and always. It is this subject that will be required to pay all costs, either "Yes" or "No" prevailing. I talk about the workers, unemployed, precarious, pensioners, immigrants.

Things are very simple: possible victory of "Yes" will be completely devastating not only for the working class and the social movement, but for the whole society, because it will open the appetite for a final attack by the greedy Capital aiming to establish a callous political and economic dictatorship. Already the current mobilisation of the European and international Capital and its supporters in Greece (those who by all previous governments ravaged literally the country and the lives of human beings) are in favour of this outcome and are now indicative.

Possible prevalence of "No", despite all the relevant rhetoric has been developed by almost the entire spectrum of the Left in Greece, although, in my opinion, is a clear partisan, class choice of those who prefer it -and I stand alongside all those who choose this answer- I think it also entails many dangers. Because even if they manage to keep themelves in governmental power SYRIZA and their allies in their effort to manage the debt and put back the country on track again they will be de facto forced to push painful measures for the people -and not only financial-, whether they be baptised "left", "alternative" or something else ...

I feel also that some games being replaying behind the backs of this people. Why, for example, this government refused the taxation of big business and described the issue as one of the thorniest ones of the whole negotiating process with creditors? If not big businesses taxed wildly now that there is a chance for a new beginning, based on a truly popular and alternative policy, when it will happen? Marinakis*, Melissanidis*, Alafouzos*, Copelouzos*, Vardinoyannis* and Latsis*, still murdering workers in Hellenika Petrelaia (ELPE - Hellenic Petroleum), even leading and manipulating municipal councils, evading taxes solemnly –possing of course themeselves as patriots- and associating themselves with the big European and international Capital.

In this direction, the only road of struggle is, in my opinion, one way, and has to do just about everything that the grass-roots, base, class and broader social movement in Greece created and put into practise in recent years: the forms of solidarity economy, the solidarity movements provide medical care to those who can not afford or shelter for the homeless Syrian migrants who cross-borderd, co-operative factories and workplaces, self-managed restaurants and cafes, collectives in bookshops and publishing area, popular markets without intermediaries and open free bazaars, social clinics, peoples’ neighborhood assemblies and any such open, grass-roots structures, alternative schemes based on direct social action, direct democracy, non intermediation, outside and beyond any political party control or embrace and away from every commodity logic of profit.

All these projects represent a hope for the future - the only and the most appropriate. And to defend ourselves I consider as more than a serious need to defend first the whole working class, united as a fist. The daily training of ourselves and others, the horizontal, unmediated organisation of all of us, the everyday, gradual emancipation of our class is required and offers the only solution.

Therefore there are not dilemmas. If the broader class, base, social movement in Greece can gradually and through perseverance and faith in the struggle to oppose resolutely and practically the confide of the lives of workers, unemployed, pensioners, immigrants in the hands of State, governments and authority generally wherever it comes from, and put into immediate operation and extend grass-roots structures like those cited above, this will be a great victory, a huge (re)starting forward, especially now, these critical moments for everybody - now that the masks have been fallen.

We, the oppressed ones, are every day living days when the states make our lives poorer through their injustice, when the powers steal our lives through corruption. Today, what the war between the AKP constituents has showed us, is not only the theft of this government but also the reality that all governments would be thieves. Because beyond the governments, the states are stealing our lives.

Last week a group of protesters started guarding action after some trees were taken down illegally in the name of urban gentrification projects. In the second day of the protest, very early in the morning, the police attacked the protesters heavily with gas bombs, presssured water and plastic bullets and wounded many protesteds. A spark began against this event of state terrorism and spread accross the country turning into a massive action and organized the big revolt. The public organized against increasing attacks, state terrorism and police violence and have been turning the streets into the area of resistance. This public revolt has been streaming for four days and is constantly spreading. [Italiano]

Why has everything to work for the advance and the power of those few?

Μετά την απροκάλυπτη κρατική τρομοκρατία των ΜΑΤ στην πλ. Συντάγματος και την προσπάθεια διάλυσης των διαδηλωτών, τη διασπορά του φόβου και τη συντεταγμένη συκοφάντηση των συγκεντρωμένων από τα ΜΜΕ, αποδείχθηκε περίτρανα ότι ο χειραφετημένος κόσμος της εργασίας και η νεολαία δεν υποτάχθηκαν, δεν τρομοκρατήθηκαν, δε χειραγωγήθηκαν. Αποφασιστικά και δυναμικά βγήκαν στο προσκήνιο, ως το αντίπαλο δέος των από κάτω, διαφύλαξαν το δημόσιο κοινωνικό χαρακτήρα των διεργασιών της πλ Συντάγματος και νίκησαν. [Italiano]

On Tuesday, 8 February, by 4pm, the coordinated attack of junta’s henchmen culminated against the people of Keratea (Attica-Greece). During the last two months, since 11 December, residents and people in solidarity resist strongly against the landfill construction project in Lavreotiki area. People oppose by any means to the plan of their lives’ deterioration and the natural wealth’s plunder that are attempted by the construction companies’ hyenas and their political crutches of democratic dictatorship.

At the time of the writing of this article the ruling class is continuing to search for the "right" person who as "transitional" prime minister can guarantee implementation of the unpopular measures to be taken against the people of Greece, squeezing them once again and ensuring continuation of the most savage exploitation in recent history.

imageGreece & the crisis: Seeds of Hope Okt 31 by Kostas Avramidis 0 comments

Kostas Avramidis of Irish Anarchist-platform WSM, piece, on current conditions in Greece gives a flavour of what is going on in one of the small number of countries in Europe where there is ongoing mass public action against the austerity agenda. He draws our attention to community campaigns against unwanted capitalist projects, where the traditional political system has been bypassed. Kostas sees this as a symptom of a rising political consciousness among ordinary Greeks, but he poses his own concerns if this will be enough to transform the plight of the Greek working class in a radical way.

It is the people that have already passed the threshold between indignation and resistance that constitute this square which is trying to find other squares in order to provide them with the ground for locality in terms of resistance, claiming and creation, it is this square that brought together tens of thousands of people, it is this square that fought a tenacious battle in the center of Athens on June 28th and 29th. It is this square that by passing the threshold etches a new path and keeps the door of future and hope open for others, it is the social pioneer of the Greek society, it is the rival to the one-way course imposed by capitalism, it is the shadows that will always return through the teargas clouds…

All austerity measures forced on Greek people since 2010 constitute a small hors d'oeuvre in relation to the upcoming tsunami of social poverty and squalor that will be served to them as the main course by the capital and the Greek government, the IMF and EU directorate. The percentage of “official” unemployment has surpassed 16%, while the real one is estimated to be more than 20%. [Ελληνικά] [Castellano]
