The disorientation of the popular classes

By the Greek political establishment
Statement of OAE (Press Office)
Today, an important struggle by the university students is carried out. Today, the poverty with the wage stagnation and the expensivennes in the market are increased rapidly in the urban centres. Today, in the countryside the peasantry sells products in depreciated prices in the big tradesmen and worried about the causes create the fickle meteorological phenomena. Today, the unemployment, more than never, constitutes a coercive weapon towards the wage reduction by the employers. Today, the mafia style cliques of the "public sector" (hospitals, ibanks, Taxation Office, National Electrical Company, Greek Telecome etc) have become completely insolent bringing the poor and unable people in a situation of despair. Today, the criminality against the poor layers of the population has been upgraded so much by the official state and also by the para-state gangs of robbers. Today, the exploited and oppressed in Greece are found themselves in a critical situation as the collective visions of previous decades have failed, while the collective action through the trade unions has been limited considerably.
TODAY, IT IS A NEED the popular social layers, the exploited and oppressed to exceed collectively the previous failed attempts for we avoid, in the initial stage, this tumble over which objectively will drift as if we continue in the course we have taken. HOWEVER while all this situation does prevail in the working class, the peasantry, the workers, the pensioners, the unemployed, the unable for work people, the political establishment in Greece tries to manufacture another opportuneness encouraging its project which is the extend of the class gap between poor and rich, between dominants and dominated. By this project the state aims, firstly, to disorientate the popular social layers from their real problems, manufacturing another fictitius opportuneness via the mass media. Secondly, it infuses a climate of resignation in the oppressed and exploited, a climate that everything is useless and does not deserve to struggle for it.
The popular social layers should draw conclusions and enter in action, organising their forces.
We believe that every political grouping that tries to disorientate the people - consciously or not - from their problems should isolated by the class movement. The univeristy asylum (by the way can the Education minister answer us how many thousands are those students in the "public" Universities of Greece, while, simultaneously, they are police officers and militarymen?), the individualistic violence in the streets, the surveilance cameras and, more generally, the government owned repression, are political issues which the state wants us to dealt with but away from the cause created them. The question of repression and social control cannot be faced away from the reasons created it and the state knows it very well.
We believe the answer in the potential abolition of the university asylum lies in the organisation of more massive student demonstrations in which individual and collective responsibility for the guarantee of collective student decisions must exist. We believe the answer in the use of surveilance cameras lies in the organisation of mass class struggle by which we will show in the practice our power, creating other social institutions and destroying the barbarian government owned institutions as our digital recording. We should not fall in the state’s trap which wants - during the current period that prevails recession in the class activity of the exploited and oppressed – to bring a situation of picturesqueness for everyone tries to organise class movements for another society, creating indirectly their political agenda in according of their interests.
THERE IS A NEED of creation of other collective visions and objectives with which henceforth the interested will struggle in their work and living areas. The experience of the class struggle during the previous decades with the victories and the defeats, is an important deposit should be used. We should not forget that the “big ones” are big because we we are on our knees, so forward to the class struggle!
