Financial Support to Solidarity Fund for Imprisoned and Persecuted Militants

Comrades from Greece and abroad, in March 2020 the Solidarity Fund for imprisoned and persecuted militants issued an international call for financial support. During a time of lockdown measures, public space evacuations and the general prohibition of public activities, the Solidarity Fund had been unable to further carry out its planned actions. The concerts, festivals, yearly book-fairs and similar events that comprise its main source of income have been cancelled or postponed. We were once again faced with the possibility of reducing the monthly financial support of 25 political prisoners that the Solidarity Fund had been collecting. The money we set aside had been just enough to cover the expenses for a month. Such reductions of financial aid have been present in the past. What is more, we were also challenged to avoid a worst case scenario in which we would have to completely cut off our financial support to the prisoners due to our extremely limited resources.

#Greece: New Democracy and #Pandemic Opportunism – The #Lockdown Resumes

Greece. The New Democracy administration continues to exploit the pandemic to take action against immigrants and anarchists, implementing an updated form of strategies that have not been seen since the Junta of the late 1960s and early ’70s. Our movement against the state and capital is more indispensable than ever, as the Greek state rushes to modernize the machinery via which it represses political opponents under the guise of law, order, and anti-virus mandates.

Grazia Tanta: The financial system, the first global dictator – 2

In the first part of this analysis, the total credit directed to the non-financial sector is accompanied by an approach on one of its installments, the public sector. In this second part, we will consider two other parts of this non-financial sector – households (including non-profit entities) and non-financial companies. Also and, as before, taking into account that all quantities are measured in terms of the percentage of GDP for each year.

#Dijon, #France: Invitation to come and discover the Quartier Libre des Lentillères

Dijon. France. With this second lockdown, we sense that we will have to learn to live with the global pandemic a little longer. For some time now, we had also understood that we would have to deal with the ecological crisis. Rather than gently waiting for the next state of emergency, what we are trying to build here at the Quartier Libre des Lentillères is a possible way to continue to live in spite of these crises. By imagining and creating a world that makes us envious, built of non-market relationships, based on solidarity and a sense of the common, connected to the environment in which we find ourselves, organized in self-management.

#Oakland, #California: Election night crime wave

Oakland. CA. On Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020, an unexpected crime wave spread across Oakland, a violent series of encounters that took place while thousand of liberals were glued to their screens, eager to find out which elderly, white male rapist would be coronated this January 2021. The police were prepared for riots in the case that Trump won the election, an outcome that became increasingly distant as the night dragged on. With all their resources concentrated downtown, the police were caught with their pants down when roving caravans of cars engaged in a crime-wave that spanned almost nine miles. In their desperation, the police gunned down a 20 year old father named Jonathan Torres Ramirez, a cold-blooded murder that was quickly buried under a mountain of election propaganda. Had there been thousands of people rioting downtown, this shooting could have possibly been avoided, but as it turned out, all those angry thousands were at home watching a pointless charade transpire across all levels of modern media. At the end of it all, a young man is dead, and the worst part is that few people even know it happened. Those who cannot help but remember are his family, his friends, and his community.

For Diego Maradona (1960-2020)

For the lovers of the “beautiful game”, the passing of Diego Maradona cannot leave one indifferent. It is not however for his footballing skills alone that we celebrate him – his game was without equals -, but for his capacity to express the passion of a game that was still lived by many as a sport of the people, and not quite yet the total commodity-spectacle of today.

Image above: Maradona “present” at the protests in Paris against the new proposed public security law this last Saturday
