In the crack of dawn on 27th of July, strong police forces carried out a coordinated eviction operation of 3 squatted buildings in Thessaloniki, these are migrants' housing squat "Orfanotrofio", new migrants' housing squat "Huriya" on C. Dill str. and the housing squat on Nikis blvrd. The forces of repression arrested 83 people and 75 of them are accused with "social peace disturbance". In between the arrested, there is one of our comrades, member of the Collective for Social Anarchism "Mavro & Kokkino" ("Black & Red"). The operation of repression was continued with the demolition of the space of "Orfanotrofio".

In the crack of dawn on 27th of July, strong police forces carried out a coordinated eviction operation of 3 squatted buildings in Thessaloniki, these are migrants' housing squat "Orfanotrofio", new migrants' housing squat "Huriya" on C. Dill str. and the housing squat on Nikis blvrd. The forces of repression arrested 83 people and 75 of them are accused with "social peace disturbance". In between the arrested, there is one of our comrades, member of the Collective for Social Anarchism "Mavro & Kokkino" ("Black & Red"). The operation of repression was continued with the demolition of the space of "Orfanotrofio".

This is a large scale repressive operation with double political aim. On one hand it is incorporated in the planning of victimizing , socially isolating and confining the refugees and immigrants in detention centers - concentration camps and on the other hand it serves the state's steady pursuits of repression against the cells of social and class resistance, against the "territories of strugle" with the aim to seamlessly impose conditions of impoverishment and submission. The territorializing of the political contents of self-organizing and solidarity with the refugees and the immigrants is the material proof that the social and class self-organization is capable of offering space and help to the oppressed to break out of their isolation. This constitutes a constant danger for the managers of state and capitalistic barbarianism.

Today's repressive operation is the continuity of a long series of equivalents against the "non-certified" solidaries, against those who struggle to overthrow the conditions which lead to impoverishment and death and are not a part of the efforts to beautify the image of the regime. It is also the continuity of dozens repressive operations against squatted spaces and structures of the anarchist-antiauthoritarian movement. This is an attempt to break and dissolve social and class struggle, to victimize and limit the anarchist-antiauthoritarian movement. The attacks of the riot police and the neo-nazis alternate for years as the regime unleashes its lackeys, recognizing the danger that collective moves of resistance, the organizing of social life without state intervention and the socialization the anarchist-antiauthoritarian projections represent to it.

Politically responsible for today's repressive operations have acted for years as bloodsucking leeches on the back of the movement in order to rise in power positions, having tried to produce political surplus value both from the squats and the struggle of solidarity to refugees and immigrants. Syriza constitutes, also in this field, the basic deliverer of state and capitalistic aims against society. On one side it has paralyzed the social and class movement through the dealing of hope and on the other side it has started attacking it without any prefaces, slandering it by using the system's praetorians. Given its generalized debasement and the constant loss of social consent after the imposing of new harsh terms of social pillaging, the rags of the reformist left have no other choice but to victimise, slunder and repress the cells of social, class and political resistance in order to proceed their work unhindered, that is worsening the conditions of impoverishment and submission.

A few days after the end of a series of struggling mobilizations of solidarity to refugees and immigrants in Thessaloniki and northern Greece during the No Border Camp and the Anarchist Meeting for Struggle, the riot police operation gets the additional character of state revanchism against the growth of solidarity and it is proceeded after the constant propaganda of the media and the rectoral authorities of the university who paved the road for the equivalent repressive moves and works as an "answer" to the unfolding of the movement's actions (discussions, workshops, demonstrations) which could not be striked directly during the ten days of the camp, 15-24 of June. During these mobilizations, the refugees and the immigrants went massively on the streets on the demonstration of 22nd July in Thessaloniki breaking the political and social isolation that is attempted to be imposed on them and emphasizing the perspective of common struggles of locals and migrants. This dynamic is faced with the direct manifestation of state aggressiveness, which was expressed through today's operation.

As Anarchist Political Organization, having organized the Anarchist Meeting for Struggle against Borders, War and Modern Totalitarianism and for Solidarity with refugees and immigrants during the No Border Camp, we express our solidarity to the squatted spaces who were hit by the state repression. To our comrades, refugees and immigrants who supported the mobilizations, beforehand and during, with their presence and activity, turning them into a target of the repressive authorities, for what they stand for as a part of the world of Struggle.

Against the repressive arrangements, resistance cannot fold and retreat. Our comrades, who occupied Syriza's offices in Thessaloniki, have already delivered the message of the continuation of the struggle, the message of solidarity which can and does disrupts the disperse of fear and defeatism. Against the state gangs and oppression we counter with the tenacity of struggle, the collectivization and comradeship. The slowly dying bankrupt system, which has nothing to offer but fear and impoverishment, we resist with organizing the struggle for Social Revolution, for Anarchy and Libertarian Communism.

SOLIDARITY TO THE SQUATS "ORFANOTROFIO", "HURIYA", NIKIS blvrd.

KEEP YOUR FILTHY HANDS OFF OF THE SQUATS AND EVERY SPACE OF STRUGGLE

This is just the beginning, the struggle is going on.
Revolt is out of time and space. For about 40 hours from Istiklal to Harbiye, from Tarlabasi to Besiktas the freedom of a rebellion is being felt. We come in to Taksim Square from Istiklal, after forty hours of clashes. Law enforcement officers run away with all their vehicles. Forty hours, forty years, the square has been a world for us.
This was the freedom of rebellion, maybe the most frightening slogan was that, this is just the beginning the struggle is going on.
Yes, our struggle is going on till we grow our free world, which we carry in our hearts.

imageNow It Is The Time To Raise the Struggle in Turkey Sep 13 by DAF 0 comments

Under the sun of June; the riots which have started in Taksim and have spread everywhere; have turned into the September riots in Ankara. The wind of the resistance which has been blowing for many days in ODTÜ and Tuzluçayır, have been saluted from all around the region, near and far. The ones who shine in the sky, the ones who are waving the flags of rebellion, who have been carrying the passion of revolt and who turn winds to storm, welcomed September with resistance. Salute to all who resist!

The authority and his law enforcement officers has murdered six of our brothers. The pain in our hearts is so deep. But they have also been a source of life for our struggle. Now the squares, the streets are resonating with the name of Ahmet... Resisting with his name, Ahmet.

imageBuilding the Revolution in Greece Apr 04 by Joshua Stephens 0 comments

Below I reproduce excerpts from a recent report at Truthout by Joshua Stephens on the constructive efforts by Greek anarchists to create alternatives to capitalism and the nation-state. The approaches they have been developing since the uprising in 2008 are similar to those proposed by Alexander Berkman based on his experiences during the Russian Revolution. Directly democratic popular assemblies formed the basis of the anarchist collectives during the Spanish Revolution, and were later championed by Murray Bookchin. Stephens refers to Colin Ward, whose ground breaking article on anarchism as a theory of organization is included in Volume Two of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas. Anarchist alternatives to capitalism and hierarchical organization are well documented in all three volumes of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas, now on sale at AK Press.

This inter-collective statement is a completely public political position. We will continue to follow the same bright, but at the same time uphill and rugged path that we have drawn in this city, to the end. Whatever the end is…What we guarantee is that Volos will not become Amarynthos (In 2006 in the small city of Amarynthos a few students gang-raped an immigrant student and the local society made her and her mother get out of the town by supporting the rapists).

What we call complete crisis of the system is the violent redeployment of power that targets to alter the terms of social and class antagonism for the worse for the exploited. The acute contradiction between real social needs and social and class relations that impose the amputation of these needs and make it hard for them to be met leads to the economic, political, ethical and environmental dimensions of the crisis.
