In Greece, the Stalinists are police auxiliaries


On the second day of a general strike against the capitalist offensive conducted into the "crisis", tens of thousands of Greek workers took to the streets. Among them (men and women), anarchist comrades.

In Athens, clashes took place around the parliament while the deputies voted the new austerity measures dictated by capitalistics interests.

The maintenance order service of the Greek Communist Party and the trade union under its control, PAME, attacked the revolted workers, especially the anarchist procession, to expel them from Syntagma Square, with help of iron bars and wooden truncheons. The Stalinist maintenance order service, was interposed between the cops and the anarchists to protect the parliament and did not hesitate to conduct joint charges, and to deliver demonstrators into the hands of the police.

Greek State does not only mobilizes the fascists to try to break the popular revolt, increasing racist agressions and attacks against revolutionary militants and their political scene.

It can also count on the support of "Stalinists" organizations, these same organizations which, in november 1973, denounced as "provocations," the first events organized by the anarchists of a movement that finally put an end to the dictatorship of the colonels.

At this time of social rebellion, the Greek Stalinists aggression clearly signals them as strong supporters of maintaining the capitalist order, in the historical continuity of the international stalinist movement.

In this context, the Coordination of Anarchist Groups declares her solidarity with Greek comrades who face at the same time the violence of State, its cops and its fascists thugs like Stalinists.

The far-right bastards of syriza go smoothly hand in hand with ND (nea dimokratia, right-wing party in power before syriza’s election), anthimos (the metropolit, church’s highest officer in Thessaloniki) and all the rest pile of shit, consisting the long arm of repression. With a non-seen before operation of revenge against no border camp, they attack in the crack of dawn on families of refugees in their own homes and on the solidaries.

The Villa Amalias squat has been an open political, cultural and social space, as well as a housing collective, for the past 23 years. In all these years there have been plenty of active groups in the squat including groups on theatre, concerts, musical studio, stained glass, kids’ space, dancing, foreign languages, computing, printing press, screenings, lending library, vinyl exchange – while the squat has also hosted plenty of political and cultural events by other groups. Apart from these activities inside its building, Villa Amalias has also contributed to the resolution of neighbourhood issues by participating in the residents’ assembly of Victoria square and by organising open, outward looking activities in the area – including open mic interventions, free markets, collective kitchens and kids’ events at the square.

imageMass murder in Ankara - the finger points at the Turkish state Oct 13 by Andrew Flood 1 comments

Graffiti has appeared at the site of the bomb explosion in Ankara yesterday that reads "It was not terror that killed us, it was the state." This is reflecting the widespread belief that the true origins of the bombing that killed around 100 people at the pro Kurdish peace demonstration are to be found in Erdogan's AKP party desperate attempt to intensify conflict in the hope of polarizing the electorate ahead of Novembers elections. The same process in other words that those killed yesterday were demonstrating against.

In Böll’s universe, catharsis comes even by the distorted way of vigilantism. In real life, we watch every day the rapid fascist conversion of society, the nightmarish police-judicial fortification, the States’ arbitrariness (which are able to conveniently confess that they adduced and beat someone because he looks like someone else, as was the case recently with Dimosthenis Papadatos-Anagnostopoulos, member of the parliamentary party Syriza) and the media’s brinkmanship in the conductor’s part that step over anyone without punishment.
