Greece: Squats raided and evicted

category greece / turkey / cyprus | repression / prisoners | news report author Wednesday July 27, 2016 21:30author by Dmitri (republishing) - MACG (personal capacity) Report this post to the editors

The message the left wing government wants to transmit is that there is no space for solidarity and self-managed responses to the ordeal of the refugees, only the state’s charity and the confinement, marginalisation and selective deportation carried out by a government that follows to the letter the criminal immigration policies of the EE.

In a move unprecedented in times of “democracy”, the Greek government raided and evicted today, 27 July in the early morning, three squats in the city of Thessaloniki, which were being used as shelter for refugees.

The message the left wing government wants to transmit is that there is no space for solidarity and self-managed responses to the ordeal of the refugees, only the state’s charity and the confinement, marginalisation and selective deportation carried out by a government that follows to the letter the criminal immigration policies of the EE.

The eviction comes only a couple of days after the end of the No Border Camp in Thessaloniki, which united thousands of activists from throughout the continent to protest these very policies.

One of the squats, Nikis, has been a long standing squat in Thessaloniki, which was opened up to refugee families with the onset of the refugee crisis. Another one, Orfanotrofeio, was (re)occupied last year with the express purpose of giving shelter to immigrant and refugees in a self-managed way. The third one was occupied only a few days ago in the very centre of the city for the same purpose.

Orfanotrofeio was evicted and immediately demolished. Under the rubble were buried tons of medicine, food, clothes and first necessity items that were destined for refugee families, as well as the occupants’ personal belongings.

Hundreds people were detained in the 3 operations, among them many refugees who were taken to detention camps, as well as Greek and European militants of the movement in solidarity with the refugees who are still (on the midday of 27 July) under police custody.

It is not the first time that the Syriza government has shown its authoritarian face. After enforcing disastrous austerity measures that the previous -right wing- governments were unable to carry out, it also competes with the right wing in the field of heavy-handed repression of those who don’t give up fighting for freedom and human dignity.

In response, a multitude of people has occupied the headquarters of the Syriza party in Thessaloniki. Great forces of riot police are surrounding the building and there is a great chance of a violent confrontation.

Acts, protests and demonstrations of solidarity are being organised throughout Greece.

Spread the news, join the protest, denounce the criminal acts of the government in any way possible!

One day before the memorial of the assassination of Alexandros Grigoropoulos on December 6th, the Greek democratic dictatorship decided to activate in a tragicomic way its repression mechanisms in order to prevent the upcoming uprising of the society. All the regime’s servants are on the alert trying to manipulate the public opinion and terrorize the parts of the society that resist.

All these changes, came in secrecy, with the media showing their role once more. Very few journalists talked for this and what they did was just to accuse the government for wrong handling of the case. It is not a law for the general benefit. It is an effort to protect the repressive arsenal of the state towards the “internal enemy”. The totalitarian democracy prepares itself against the social explosions.

On 6th of January 2010, in Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, a press release was arranged on Yuksel Street, for solidarity with conscience objector Enver Aydemir.
The Agile Police Force, waiting in the permitted explanation to finish, took the group into a chamber and asked everybody for their IDs. The police normally would not ask for ID in such a “constitutional” and “unsevere” and the “citizen” activist has no such obligation ask to inform the police before a press release.

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.
