“They’re trying to bury us. They don’t know we’re seeds.” – Info tour on autonomous struggle in #Greece

Dear comrades,

In March and April, we would like to do an info tour to report on the current situation of the autonomous and refugee struggles in Greece. Preferably (but not necessary) we would like to accompany this with live music, solidarity parties and other solidarity actions and would also need support from bands, DJ’s and structures from your cities. The money that will be raised will be split to support the repression expenses (bail, lawyers etc.) of comrades in Greece and to support refugee on the Balkan route.

Those who seek saviors are doomed to servitude and those who seek glory are obsessed with what they cannot control. Anarchy is the negation of authority and obedience. It is often the obedient that carry the sword, whether by master or mob. We understand that society reinforces these constructs wherever it may seep in. Our enemy is overt, the state and its henchman. Our enemy is covert, ideas brought forth wearing a mask of solidarity, carrying the knife of the state.
