Syria: Greek Nationalist Socialists fighting with Assad's regime far more dangerous than Golden Dawn

category greece / turkey / cyprus | anti-fascism | non-anarchist press author Sunday September 29, 2013 05:17author by Panagiotis Liakos - "δημοκρατία" Report this post to the editors

Believe it or not there is a far more dangerous extreme right group in Greece besides Golden Dawn. It's name is Black Lily and they are a Nationalist Socialist organisation that organise themselves in a non hierarchical, horizontal, democratic platform structure but without democratic aims or ideas in mind!!
A little insight on them can be read in the following interview contacted a couple of months ago by a journalist for the right/far right Greek daily “Democratia”!

The Greek Nationalist Socialists that are fighting alongside Asaad's regime are far more dangerous than Golden Dawn


Believe it or not there is a far more dangerous extreme right group in Greece besides Golden Dawn. It's name is Black Lily and they are a Nationalist Socialist organisation that organise themselves in a non hierarchical, horizontal, democratic platform structure but without democratic aims or ideas in mind!!
A little insight on them can be read in the following interview made a couple of months ago by a journalist for the right/far right Greek daily “Democratia”!

They are hard line National Socialists. They do not hesitate to use guns to defend their ideological believes. They produce propaganda and they do not hesitate to use direct action as means of highlighting their politics.

They co ordinate their actions through their blog "Mavros Krinos" (Black Lily) http://mavroskrinos.blogspot.gr/ On June 15th they organised such an action using this blog and attacked - bathing him with some fizzy drink - minister of Greek government Evangelos Venizelos in Paris, on their blog they claimed responsibility for the action right after the attack by stating that the attacker was a "Greek autonomous National Socialist comrade" of theirs. In Syria members of "Black Lily" are not using words or bathing people with cans of fizzy drinks.

In Syria they are armed and dangerous. A whole platoon of volunteers are fighting side by side with Assad's government forces. "Democratia" newspaper journalist Panagiotis Liakos contacted Stavros Libovisis member of the editorial group of "Black Lily" and in an interview asked him about the involvement and role of the organisation in the Syrian conflict and received some very interesting answers.

What is the name of the collective you represent? And what's its role in the creation of the Greek volunteer force fighting on Assad's side in Syria?

The collective's name that I represent is "Black Lily", a Greek National Socialist organisation with autonomous running and structure. We have been in touch with our Syrian brothers in arms for years now and that has played an important role in our today's presence fighting along their side.

How many fighters are currently reside in Syria? Are they there fighting out of ideological motivation or they are just mercenaries?

When you feel deep inside you the sense that you belong somewhere your motivation and presence there can be only in purely ideological grounds, money does not come into play whatsoever. Therefore the only reason for us to be there fighting alongside our Syrian brothers in arms is to help them defend the soil of a friendly nations people, showing our solidarity in practise against an age-old foe. The Greeks volunteers is estimated to be the size of a platoon, to answer the first part of your question.

What is their social and professional background? Do they have any experience on any other armed struggle the likes of Iraq, Kosovo, Afghanistan?

Working class Citizens' army, highly politicised, that reject corrupt party politics and at the same time understands very well the plans of international authority and global loan sharks. On the second part of the question, they have not participated in any other armed struggle in recent years.

Have they seen any action and if yes have they had any casualties?

Since 2011 that the capitalist web start constructed around the body of proud Syria, fighters from all over Europe joined the ranks in of the Syrian Army and Civil Defence in mass, among them many Greeks. Greek fighters have participated in all major battles that commenced in the South and West of the country over the last two years and so far no casualties have been reported. It's not a coincidence that in the fierce battle that took place in Al-Quasar beside the praise for the heroic Hezbollah, the Greek fighters received credit for their bravery as well.

How does the local population see your presence there? What are their thoughts of Greece in general?

Syria has been named besides South Italy, "Great Greece" [Magna Graecia] and the feelings of the ordinary Syrian people cannot be described in a couple of lines. A massive part of the population is of Greek extraction and is very disappointed that no one cared to support them all these years from the corrupt Greek state.

Regarding the Syrian Christian Orthodox that are chased by the Islamists fundamentalists, have they helped with the armed struggle against the rebels?

Syria is a mosaic of nationalities and religions that the Ba'ath party successfully protected during the years of Hafez al-Assad and Bashar al-Assad. The majority of the Syrian people - including the reports of Western governments - supports the regime and rejects the plans of the bloodthirsty imperialists that want to turn the country into a capitalist brothel and a market for the likes of McDonald's and Starbucks. Syrian orthodox are fighting in the front line for a free nationalist Syria and they are distinguished for their bravery in counterattacking the intoxicated addicts of the mercenary Salafists of Al-Qaeda.

What's the reason for the conflict in Syria to your opinion? What you think is going to be the outcome?

This is just another episode in the expanding global dictatorship of the American-Zionist war machine after the collapse of the USSR and there is a good chance Syria to be its first geopolitical defeat since the Vietnam war. Some of the reasons for conflict is the protection of the murderous Israeli state interests, the race for the exploitation of the rich natural resources of the area and the hate of the Emirs of the gulf for Syria among other things. The Syrian people at the end will prevail because they are on the defence of nation and truth!

In the groups of volunteers (or mercenaries) are lots of Europeans. How many are they? And are they coming from nationalist or extreme-right wing parties and organisations?

The exact number of European fighters here is hard to pinpoint, but in recent times thousands of Russians, Ukrainians and Poles declared themselves ready to fight alongside the "The Lion of Syria", i.e. Bashar al-Assad. We distance ourselves from the term "extreme right" for all these people, because traditionally the "bourgeoisie extreme right" has no connection with national-revolutionary ideas. Indeed some Europeans participate and support parties and various movements of the so called "Nationalist Autonomy".

Are they any US volunteers on Assad's side?

We do not know if they are any US citizens on the side of the Nationalist army, but we know for a fact that they are plenty of these cannibal fighters on the side of the so called "Free Syrian Army".

On the battle that took place in Al-Qusayr we found loads of ID documents and passports on the dead bodies of the compatriots of Barack Obama, that fellow that is so admired by Mrs Rena Dourou of SYRIZA.

For all these that you've heard that happened in Syria so far, what is the incident that shocked you the most? Have there been any massacres that we haven't seen in the western media?

The drama of the Syrian people brings in memory the suffering of the Koreans, Vietnamese, Iraqis and Serbians with the thousands of casualties in the previous decades a result of the actions of the Wall Street "hawks" and the American-Zionist foreign policy. It's unbelievable how quiet the Greek Orthodox church of Archbishop Ieronymos and Patriarch Bartolomiou has been on the continuous pledges for help by the Syrian Orthodox people. Every day, civilians and prisoners are sadistically executed, women and children are being raped, towns and villages set on fire only because they refuse to accept the imposed Sharia law of the mercenaries of Qatar and Saudi Arabia and for all these atrocities you won't hear a word on any western radio or television.

What do you think will be the fate of the kidnapped Syrian Orthodox bishops?

We find it quiet hard to believe that they will survive the uncontrollable mania of the mercenaries, the western media often hides the tragic end of that kind of incident because they are afraid of the reaction of religious communities and at the same time expose the people behind the plans of a wider explosion of violence in the wider Middle East area. We call all these people with open minds to support by all means the patriotic forces of Syria and understand that they have to ready themselves for the incoming storm that approaching towards them fast because of the plans of the local Zionist occupation government back home.

turkey_coup_2737355.jpg imageCoup is the State, Revolution is Liberty! 05:41 Wed 20 Jul by Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet 0 comments

The coup, which has been an inevitable reality of the state presence in this geography since the military coup of 1980, arose after 36 years, on the night of July 15. Many state buildings were blocked for a few hours during the military mobilisation based in Istanbul and Ankara. The coup started with flypast of fighter jets in Ankara and blocking of bridges in Istanbul by soldiers, and continued with taking hostage of chief of general staff and tank noise and gun shots in the streets. Many state buildings were shot by F16s and helicopters including the parliament building and the headquarters of National Intelligence Organisation; There were clash of arms in many places between soldiers and police. Following the events, national state television broadcast was cut and the coup declaration signed 'Peace at Home Council'' was read. When the ''5 Hour Coup'' ended, more than one hundred soldiers, more than eighty police officers and more than eighty anti-coup protesters died. 2839 soldiers, among them many high ranked ones, were taken into custody.

The umbrella organisation of the Kurdish movement, the Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) Executive Council Co-Presidency, has released a statement about last night's coup attempt in Turkey.

The statement said; “There has been a coup attempt by persons whose identity and purpose is yet not clear. This attempt comes just before the military council meeting, where Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was reportedly going to assign generals close to himself to the army's top tier. Another striking dimension of the coup attempt is that it comes at a time when discussions about the fascist AKP government's foreign policy, were taking place.”
