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]

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]
Two months of State terrorism 18:22 Wed 09 Feb 0 comments
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.

Greece: Creditors and States are nothing ... Jul 04 0 comments
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.
Greece: Let's go one step further Nov 11 0 comments
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.

Greece & the crisis: Seeds of Hope Oct 31 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.
“Returning as Shadows” Aug 04 0 comments
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…
Greece: the European version of shock doctrine Aug 01 0 comments
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]more >>

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.

Because beyond the governments, the states are stealing our lives.

In this situation we live we need all to realise that we must take the matters into our hands to move in self-management of the production and society. Who indeed is still confident of all of these who run and govern this country for years? Who gives a legitimacy to their rulers and mechanisms? Why has everything to work for the advance and the power of those few?
