Greece: Open letter of Revolutionary Struggle member Pola Roupa from clandestinity

from Contra Infos with thanks

polaOn July 16th, 2014 the armed dogs of the establishment unleashed a fierce manhunt, and comrade Nikos Maziotis, member of the Revolutionary Struggle, was hit by a cop’s bullet and fell covered in blood. The comrade gave his battle against the cops that were chasing him. The state apparatus in its totality expressed triumph at the arrest of the “No 1 most-wanted fugitive” in the country.

So did the criminal and real arch-terrorist Samaras, whose government took over the reins from the former pro-memorandum governments in a campaign for the biggest social genocide that has ever occurred in Greece in a time of “peace”. Samaras has used the arrest of Maziotis as a means to the stabilization of his faltering government, in order to support a political and economic regime with rotten foundations, which has long been discredited in social consciences.nikos-maziotis-libertad

Thousands march in Athens against the recent raids of Anarchists’ houses by the policeBfzl8lEIEAAjP7e

Thousands of people march -under rain-  in the centre of Athens against the state of emergency that Greek Police and the minister of Police Nicos Dendias are trying to implement against the Anarchists. A few weeks ago Christodoulos Xiros the member of the communist armed struggle group ’17November’ escaped from Korydalos prison. Since then the police started a witch hunt against Anarchists supposedly looking for Xiros. At least 26 houses of Anarchists have been raided so far, with the police and the attorenys general destroying the homes they attack. Continue reading

The Rise Of Nazi Greece.

93659-greece-2
      The rise of Nazi Greece, first they came for the immigrants, then they came for the Roma, then they came for——!!! The Peloponnese, idyllic. Kalamata, quiet picturesque beauty, not the sort of places in “civilised” Europe that you would expect state terrorism to be open and so blatantly displayed. Then again, there is a class war going on.  Continue reading

Athens squat defies police raid

RESISTANCE against the plutofascist state in Greece continues in the face of continuous attacks by the authorities.

An attempt to crush Greece’s oldest anarchist squat, Lelas Karagianni 37, was defeated on Tuesday January 15 when it was reoccupied later the same day.

At about 12.00pm, cops raided the famous squat, reports Contra Info.

Supporters and neighbours gathered at Amerikis square and then outside the squat, trying to prevent the eviction.

There were several comrades chanting slogans on the rooftop of the building that were caught by the police. Also, two supporters were beaten by cops on the street and detained as well. Heavy repressive forces were deployed downtown, plus a police helicopter.

Soon thereafter, more people were assembled near the squat. A gathering was called for 15.00 outside the police headquarters on Alexandras Avenue, in solidarity with the 14 squatters who were arrested from inside Lelas Karagianni, and a discussion was announced for 19.00 in the Athens Polytechnic (entrance from Stournari street).
Reports Contra Info: “All of the arrested comrades were released at about 17.00 and Lelas
Kariagianni squat was reoccupied!” Continue reading

occupy resist produce Greece: Fighting for Revolution

Posted on January 5, 2013 en español abajo
Greece stands at a crossroads. Either austerity or social revolution. The latter has been happening anyway with the parallel economy booming. The state is resisting, but so are the people.
The video below is a compilation from a number of sources and includes footage of confrontation over 2011-12. It has been a busy two years. 2013 will not be an exception. As with many other parts of the world – Chiapas, Catalonia, and the pockets of resistance everywhere – we may be witnessing the death throes of capitalism.
If Greece was Syria, the US would be in there arming the rebellion. Instead it’s up to us to provide support – as with the International Revolutionary Solidarity Movement or the International Brigade – or by creating our own version, where possible, of the parallel economy where we live.

Why the Eurostrike?

By Vincent Navarro

..Due to their history of dictators the 1% in South Europe have been able to coerce, swindle, supertax, deprive and overwork us, while stashing billions of our money in tax havens…

The ruling Conservative and liberal parties, both in Spain and in most European Union countries, including the Eurozone, are implementing policies that result in: 1) labour reforms that reduce wages and increase unemployment, 2) the shrinking of the labour force, 3) reduction of social protection, 4) social spending cuts, 5) the privatization of public services and the welfare state, 6 ) the reduction of labour and social rights; 7) cuts to, and privatization  of state pensions, and 8) the weakening of collective bargaining and unions.

In recent months, the impact on our lives of the so-called crisis has intensified and politicians show no will or capacity to act upon it. So, we are building our own politics, we are taking the initiative, revealing what is behind the debt mechanism that sustains this big  scam they call crisis.  We declare that:

Debt is neither public or legitimate.

greek defense ministry stormed

Workers at the Skaramangas shipyard in Athens storm the ministry of defense; farmers in Heraclion, Crete raid the Heraclion airport, as tension ahead of the voting of new austerity cuts intensifies

On the morning of October 4th, approximately 500 workers at the Skaramangas shipyard (West Attica), gathered outside the greek ministry of defense on Mesogeion Avenue. The workers were protesting for the fact that they have not been paid their last 6 monthly wages.

The workers quickly gathered around the hellenic army general staff HQ. Soon thereafter riot police entered the courtyard and clashed with the workers. At least 120 detentions of workers were reported and the tension continued outside the police HQ on Alexandras Ave (where anti-fascists are still held following arrests earlier in the week).

At approximately the same time, in the city of Heraclion, Crete, farmers gathered in the city centre to protest again the forthcoming cuts in their pensions, as part of the latest round of austerity cuts expected to be announced in the coming days, or weeks.

Later in the afternoon the farmers moved to the city’s international airport, entering its halls and attempting to smash through the gate of the airport in order to occupy its runway. Riot police used tear gas and the farmers responded by tossing stones at the police. Continue reading
