Down Your Limbs from Indymedia Athens!

<table><tr><td>From <a href="http://en.contrainfo.espiv.net/2012/02/18/down-your-limbs-from-indymedia... Info</a>

<p>Since the generalized attack on an entire society in terms of labour, social and political rights has been answered massively <a href="http://en.contrainfo.espiv.net/2012/02/12/greece-a-brief-summary-of-prot... target="_blank">last Sunday, 12/2</a>, with the concentration of hundreds of thousands of protesters across Greece, the Power plays its last card, that of intensification of repression, to recoup the social rage.</p>
<p>On Sunday morning, dozens of activists were kidnapped by the State-terrorist, some even from their homes. <a href="http://en.contrainfo.espiv.net/2012/02/16/athens-pre-trial-detention-of-... target="_blank">Four protesters in Athens</a>, defenders of the right to life, and not mere survival, were imprisoned before their trial that it may take months until it starts. Others were prosecuted three days after the protest gatherings and demonstrations in other Greek cities. A few days before that, in TV channels and the media, sold-out politicians, collaborators of the Troika’s executives raise questions over the operation and existence of Indymedia.</p></td><td><img title="Shocked it took this long" src="http://anarchistnews.org/files/pictures/2012/gogogo.jpg"></td></tr></tab...

<p>With an announcement on Friday afternoon, 17/2, the Rector of Athens Polytechnic School warns the public about power outages in university buildings on ‘maintenance’ grounds! So, they have found a way to gag <em>athens.indymedia.org</em>, cutting the electric power. They already launched cyber attacks on Athens IMC server last Sunday, 12/2, during the big demonstrations across the country.</p>
<p>This announcement smells of state repression from miles away, especially if we take into account the sequence of events and pressures of the past week, with the hardening of the regime’s attitude. This smells like bad news in view of the upcoming protest mobilization of large parts of society, on Sunday, February 19th, since Athens IMC is one of the few key spaces where events are communicated by the participants without any mediation or distortion by the submissive corporate media.<br />
<strong></strong></p>
<h2 style="text-align: center"><strong>But they will keep finding us in front of them.</strong></h2>
<p>PS. We haven’t forgotten, of course, all previous failed repressive manipulations of the State, in coordination with the fascists, even back then, when they did not cooperate officially with each other and kept some formal distance&#8230;</p>

<strong><span style="color: #333333">One morning I’ll open the door</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> and I’ll go out into the streets, like I did yesterday.</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> And I’ll be thinking of nothing else</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> but that one piece from the father and the sea,</span></strong><br />

<strong><span style="color: #333333"> those only pieces that they’ve left me with;</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> and the city, the city that they’ve left to rot,</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> and our friends that have been lost.</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> One morning I’ll open the door</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> and jump straight into the fire</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> I’ll go out like I did yesterday,</span></strong><br />

<strong><span style="color: #333333"> shouting ‘fascists!’,</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> erecting barricades and hurling stones,</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> with a red banner held up high, shining in the sun.</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> I’ll open the door — and it’s not that I fear —</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> but, you see, I meant to tell you</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> that I didn’t make it on time</span></strong><br />

<strong><span style="color: #333333"> and that you need to learn</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> not to take to the streets without any weapons</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> as I did; because I didn’t make it on time,</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> otherwise you’ll disappear as I did, ‘thereby’, ‘vaguely’,</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> broken into little pieces made of sea,</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> childhood years and red banners.</span></strong><br />

<strong><span style="color: #333333"> One morning I’ll open the door</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> and I’ll vanish away with the dream of revolution</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> within the infinite loneliness of the streets that will be burning,</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> within the infinite loneliness of the paper-barricades,</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> being named — don’t believe them! —</span></strong><br />
<strong><span style="color: #333333"> as ‘provocateur’</span></strong></p>

time to take over TV and radio stations to demand the release of your comrades!

time to storm the prisons like they stormed the bastille and begin the revolution.

Nigel Farage approves!

A rioter in the EU parliament... Man the lifeboat!

I'm wondering if Anonymous has seen this. Surely they'd be pissed about the government shutting down Athens IMC!

someone please let them know about this!

if they could hook up work-arounds for protesters in Egypt under Mubarak, they can do it to keep athens IMC online!

the headline should say "hands off Athens Indymedia" not 'down your limbs" hahaha
