#Moria, one day we’ll pay for it: The agonizing screams of migrants being tear gassed by riot cops [Video]

Lesvos. Greece. When they were faced with the horrors of war and violence, we failed them, so they were forced to abandon the places where they lived. When they crossed the borders to escape to Europe, we closed them up indefinitely into overcrowded camps in the outskirts of the continent, like Lesbos island, forbidding them to freely move within Europe. When the pandemic came, we locked them up like prisoners inside the camps for almost 5 months. When one of those cramped refugee camps in Moria (built for 3.000 people, while housing 13.000) was burnt to the ground, we sent an army of riot policemen to make sure that they cannot leave Lesbos island. When they tried to move to Mytilene, the capital town of the island, to get food and water, we blocked their way with scores of riot policemen and local racists. When frustrated at the lack of help, they protested for being intentionally starved, in order to be forced to move to a concentration camp, where they’ll be imprisoned in return for food and water, we teargassed their small children and their elderly, we teargassed all of them.

[Video] This is what greek democracy looks like: Cops ram antiracist protesters with their motorbikes in #Athens

Athens. Greece. July 15. 2020. This is what democracy looks like. No, really. This is what democracy looks like. These public servants called “officers of the law” are agents of a democratically elected government. Their acts -regardless of the fact that they are dressed, look and act like a criminal gang and regardless of the fact that if these exact same acts were to be committed by citizens, they would be deemed as crimes according to the law- are authorized and take orders by democratically elected governments all over the world, every day, for decades and decades now. Face it. The fact remains, that although many would not characterize this as “democracy”, because it so obviously arbitrary and unjust, it is actually Democracy.

#Athens: Protest turns to riot against the new draconian law of banning protests [Video]

9 July 2020, Athens, Greece: Proposed by a self-proclaimed socialist Minister of Public Order (Michalis Chrisohoidis), taking part in a right wing government (News Democracy), assisted by the votes of the self-proclaimed socialist party (KINAL), the greek Parliament approved a junta-inspired bill on Thursday imposing new restrictions to quash and destroy the right to protest, a right integral to the so-called democracies, eg. under the provisions of the new law you will be arrested for joining a protest that hasn’t been authorized by the police. For dozens of years across the world, this has been called a Police State or a Dictatorship but then again the greek governing party’s name is “New Democracy”, which probably means the same, when someone feels the need to affix the word “New” to the political theory of “Democracy” that has been solidified for more than 2.500 years.
