Greece / Worldwide: Call for an International Day of Action Against State Terrorism – December 6th, 2017

The Open Assembly AGAINST the POLICE OCCUPATION is calling for a worldwide day of action against state terrorism on December 6th.

6 December 2008 , 15 years old Alexis Grigoropoulos is shot point blank by cops in the neighborhood of Exarchia in Athens. Alexis falls from the bullet of state murderers and a hurricane of rage rises. This was no accident; it was a targeted murder in the heart
of a neighborhood that is, as much historically as in the present, a hub for the oppressed to organize themselves into the resistance movement. The message was clear, to terrorise the resistance, to assert state totalitarian control, to stifle the brewing insurrection against a decrepit system of exploitation and oppression. The story of Alexis is the story of thousands of fighters shot, tortured and disappeared by the armed guards of the state around the world.

#Athens, #Greece: Attack against an OPKE unit in #Exarchia

On Tuesday , December 6 of 2016 , 8 years after the murder of the anti-authoritarian Alexandros Grigoropoulos by the cops; anarchists, anti-authoritarians, neighbors and people who hang around Exarcheia decided to break the normality of the miserable life imposed by the social standards and resist the state repression. Every year, that day the neighborhood of Exarcheia is surrounded by cops trying to stop the vengeful rage of those who take the streets fighting.

Originally published  by Traces of Fire

But this time, the resistance of the rioters was more organized and coordinated than ever, following the response against the state in the clashes of November 15 and 17. The anti-state offensive was fierce, and that was proved because – despite the murderous firing of rubber bullets and tear gas directly into the bodies – The uniformed fascists only managed to pass the burning barricades late at night, and after most of the people, especially the organized ones had already left the place.

This victory of ours hurt the servants of the state, who projected all their psycological complexes beating the arrested people of that night. Their cowardly violence and the attempt of the Greek bullies to humilliate the arrested comrades is the proof of their bitter defeat.
Also the filthy judges plays their part on the repression of the insurgents when acting in the name of all the state authorities send three of the arrested to pre-trial imprisonement.
The surrounding of Exarcheia was already intensified before 6 December, with the characteristic example of the invasion of motorcicle police forces and the control of migrants. It was like that until the 6/12, particularly with the presence of special forces of OPKE in the area.

We answer the murderers of kids with the same thing that they learn to taste all this year: fire.
In the evening of Friday , December 16, we chose to attack the bullies of the Greek police located at the intersection of Kallidromiou street and Oikonomou street, supposedly to protect the supermarket. For those who knows the area of Exarcheia, is obvious that the deployment of OPKE units in that place serves other purposes and is framed in a broader plan that seeks to control the neigborhood.

The tasks of this unit (OPKE) in the past years at the city outskirts and especially in the west zone of Athens had as its only objective the military-style ID control of youngsters, outcasts and migrants. The ridiculous reasons that they use to impose their reign of terror in Exarcheia will be answered with gasoline and fire over their heads. The armed cops of OPKE showed their huge skills when they began to run away in panic and hide behind a car in sight of the 15 molotovs flying against them.

The clashes and the diffusion of insurrectionary situations must be a daily practice. Let December 6 light up the metropolis every night, until freedom and anarchy.


Anarchists (the ones who attacked there, in that way)

Die Dämmerung vorbereiten: Solidarität mit der griechischen #Antifa!

logogrischischSonntag, den 28.April 2013: Infoveranstaltung und Beratung zur Situation in Griechenland

Das so_ko_wpt und das AZ Wuppertal möchten darüber beratschlagen, wie internationale Solidarität mit dem antifaschistischen Kampf in Europa und speziell in Griechenland organisiert werden kann.

Dazu möchten wir antifaschistische Gruppen und Initiativen und antifaschistisch denkende und handelnde Menschen aus NRW herzlich einladen.

Ausgangspunkt der Beratung wird eine Gesprächsrunde sein, bei der über die aktuelle Situation in Griechenland informiert wird. Hierzu haben wir antifaschistische Menschen aus Athen nach Wuppertal eingeladen.

Zum Hintergrund: Nach einer ersten Welle der Empörung über die Erfolge der neonazistischen Partei «Chrysi Avgi» («Goldene Morgenröte») in Griechenland ist die öffentliche Aufmerksamkeit für die faschistische Entwicklung in dem von der EU-Krisenpolitik besonders betroffenen Land deutlich zurückgegangen. Dabei verfolgt die griechische Nazi-Partei immer ungehemmter einen brutalen Kurs zur Erringung der Hegemonie auf den Straßen der griechischen Städte, dem vor allem Andersdenkende, Nicht-Griechinnen und -Griechen, und Linke ausgesetzt sind. Es wird davon berichtet, dass es für Betroffene in einigen Quartieren kaum noch möglich ist, ungeschützt das Haus zu verlassen. Flankiert wird die Politik der “Chrysi Avgi” Schlägerbanden von faschistischer «Sozial- politik» der Partei für gebürtige Griechen und Griechinnnen in den Vierteln. Dabei füllt die «Goldene Morgenröte» immer öfter jene Lücken, die der Kahlschlag der griechischen Sozial- systeme gerissen hat.

Der griechische Staat und seine Sicherheitsbehörden sichern die Expansion der «Chrysi Avgi» unterdessen nach Kräften ab. Die Repression gegen die antifaschistische Linke in Griechen- land hat in den letzten Monaten immer schlimmere Ausmaße angenommen – bis hin zur angekündigten Zerschlagung teil- weise seit Jahrzehnten bestehender linker Strukturen, wie bei den brutalen Räumungen der «Villa Amalia» oder von «Lelas Karagianni» vor wenigen Wochen.

Wirhaltenesfürbesonderswichtig,auchvonhierausdenanti- faschistischen Widerstand in Griechenland zu unterstützen. Die deutsche Bundesregierung ist mitverantwortlich für den Erfolg der griechischen Nazis. Sowohl die von ihr durchge- setzte europäische Krisenpolitik, als auch das Festhalten am sog. Dublin II-Abkommen im Rahmen des EU-Grenzregimes tragen maßgeblich zu jener gesellschaftlichen Situation bei, die von der «Chrysi Avgi» ausgenutzt wird.

Im Nachgang einer am 26. und 27.April im Wuppertaler ADA stattfindenden Konferenz der Rosa-Luxemburg Stiftung über internationale Solidarität in der Krise (#cross_solidarity) und im Rahmen der Veranstaltungen und Feiern zu «40 Jahren Autonome Zentren in Wuppertal» möchten wir am Sonntag, den 28.04. darüber beraten, wie eine solche Unterstützung jenseits von Solidaritätsadressen und Spendensammlungen aussehen kann. Zusammen mit euch und mit unseren Gästen möchten wir die eigene Ratlosigkeit überwinden und eine Perspektive entwickeln, gemeinsam die Dämmerung der «Goldenen Morgenröte» vorzubereiten.

Aktualisierte Informationen zur Veranstaltung und zur Lage in Griechenland gibt es ab jetzt auf dieser Website.
