Athens: Demo in response to the deportation of Errol [video] – Call for a week of action solidarity for anarchist comrade Errol

Athens. Greece. Despite the general police state that the state and bosses trying to impose on every inch of the city, the ban on demonstrations and the ban on gatherings, comrades, one next to the other, went out on Monday 21st of December and made a neighbourhood demonstration against the state abduction of Errol.

Originally published by Athens Indymedia.

Slogans shouted included:

– IF WE DON’T RESIST IN EVERY NEIGHBOURHOOD, OUR CITIES WILL BECOME MODERN PRISONS,

– HEAR IT WELL, HUMAN GUARDS, HANDS OFF OUR FIGHTERS,

– SOLIDARITY IS THE WEAPON OF THE PEOPLE, HANDS OFF ERROL.

We returned only a small part of the violence the state exercised on anarchist Errol onto two state/capitalist targets. There is more to come…

There were no arrests or apprehensions as the repression forces arrived at the spot 25 minutes later.

With this move we overcame the fear and challenged the seeming omnipotence of the state.

NO DEPORTATION OR STATE ABDUCTION SHOULD REMAIN UNANSWERED

SIGNS OF SOLIDARITY TO ALL THOSE FIGHTING AGAINST MODERN TOTALITARIANISM

21 – 28 DECEMBER 2020

WEEK OF ACTION & SOLIDARITY FOR ANARCHIST COMRADE ERROL

IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF COMRADE ERROL

NO THOUGHT OF DEPORTATION

BURN ALL PRISONS AND ALL THE CELLS-CAGES

Comrade Errol is being persecuted because:

HE IS RESISTING THE STATE’S MANAGEMENT OF COVID-19

In the midst of covid19, the states invoking a state of emergency, legalizing confinement, surveillance and control intensifies its repressive campaign against whoever is resisting against them. With the pretext of the spreading of the virus, it begins banning gathering and demonstrations, giving out tickets, violent attacks, incarcerations and arrests of resisting individuals and groups. Its goal being the psychological weakening of those resisting, at the same moment where the state being in a deep crisis tries to secure its dominion.

HE IS FIGHTING AGAINST THE STATE AND ANY FORM OF AUTHORITY

The state calls Errol “a danger for the public order and state safety” taking him into custody and threatening him with a vengeful deportation. Any action in the anarchist and general anti-authoritarian movement against authority and any form of oppression is considered by the state as illegal and is instantly repressed.

HE IS AN ANARCHIST

Ιt is clear that the decision for the deportation of the comrade is based on hispolitical identity as an anarchist, his fighting stance and his active action insocial and political struggles. One more decision of conviction addedto the long list of criminalization of comrades in struggle.

THE PASSION FOR LIFE AND FREEDOM CANNOT BE ILLEGALIZED OR REPRESSED

AS ERROL’SPROSECUTION IS POLITICALTHE ANSWER WILL BE POLITICAL

SOLIDARITY IS THE WEAPON OF PEOPLEHANDS OFFERROL
