#Athens, #Greece: Statement on the events of the last weeks in Viktoria square and the migrant struggle

Athens. Greece. At 4:30 in the morning on the 17th of June, squads of riot police surrounded Plateia Viktoria and forced around 16 sleeping families — about 71 children and 44 adults — onto busses. They were taken to the Eleonas Refugee Camp. The families had spent the last several days resisting attempts to put them onto busses. They wanted homes and safety. They didnot want to go to another refugee camp. All of the families had spent months in Moria living indirty and dangerous conditions. They had arrived in Athens a few days earlier and slept onthe pavement of the Plateia. The families asked why they were being punished, abandoned,and denied basic human rights.

#Greece: And now what? First thoughts on an antagonistic movement prospect in times of #pandemic

The following text was written and distributed in Greek in early April, during the first stages of the current pandemic/crisis. Some things have of course changed since then, but we decided that its translation into English is still of political value for the exchange of ideas within the global movement of social antagonism.

#Athens: Can’t Pay? Don’t Pay! KEEP YOUR RENT – DEMO

Athens. Greece. We take to the streets to demonstrate as tenants and workers, regardless of ethnicity, race and gender. We take to the streets because more and more people can’t pay their rent. We take to the streets, because more and more people are threatened with eviction. We take to the streets, as we can’t continue working all day long for shitty wages and spend most of our salary on rent. We take to the streets, because the greek state is eager to listen and legislate for the sake of bosses and landlords, while we, as tenants, remain invisible and vulnerable.

No Border Kitchen Lesvos: About the situtation in #Lesvos

Lesvos. Greece. Pushbacks. That will be the word that describes the situation on the Island at the moment. Almost on a daily basis, dinghy’s full of people are being pushed back. Without any consideration for safety, diginity or self determination the hellenic coast guard has been illegally denying people their right to request asylum. To them, these are not people, but only an annoying nousance that has to be kept out of the country at all costs. The pushbacks are not only happening at the sea, but the very idea of allowing migrants to be in europe is being pushed back. The physical presence confined to camps, out of sight and out of mind. Recently the goverment announced that they will strive for all refugee camps in greece to be turned into closed structures. This until “the flows form the opposite Turkish shores stop, so that the issue can reconsidered again by the goverment”. All but rhetoric, because we know the flow will never stop until there is no more structural inequality, racism and war, and they will never open the camps once they are closed. How will this ever end, when the nations of this world continue to profit of the misery and death that they cause?

Thoughts on a Social Pandemic and its State Management

Instead of a prologue

Nights and days seem to linger on, while time is speeding up. Every day we come across dozens of new announcements, reviews, and translations. We read – as much as we can – and think, trying to figure out what the hell is going on. So, why another text? What sense would it make, to publish a text during this condition of intense social isolation and physical distancing, that we won’t be able to distribute in real-time (at least for now)? In reality, this piece of writing was, for us, a reason to meet and discuss, partly a bit abstractly and partly somewhat specifically, on what we have been experiencing lately. We concluded that capturing this discussion is useful in finding new communication pathways to reach out to those who also wonder what is going on, and are not just satisfied with the “stay home” prompt, but instead look for possibilities to exist within it, to transcend it, and to return once more to public space. In any case, this is time for redefining of actions, methods, goals, and practices.
