It is sometimes useful to keep a distance from events before you talk about them. Anticipation and the frozen time of captivity in prison accelerate, nevertheless, the cool-headed distance from events. A self-possessed distance gives you the opportunity to observe details which are usually ignored and bulldozed by the warm blood conditions’ momentum of intensity. So, as they often say, “the devil is hidden in the details”…

In a paper we presented at the first of the public meetings we organized on the left management of the capitalist state, the politics of recuperation and what to do next to satisfy our proletarian social needs in May 2015, we stated that “the boring spectacle of the Greek state’s ‘negotiations’ with its European ‘partners’ and the partial institutional reforms introduced by the Syriza government have functioned like the blue pill of hybernation, a pill that has been swallowed by a large amount of proletarians and the movement against violent internal devaluation.

“Communists supposed it… but Syriza surpassed their expectations…”

This joke could very well summarize the programmatic lessons to be drawn from the situation that proletarians in Greece, our brothers and sisters of misery and struggle, are subjected to. Indeed since always or at least since the great campaigns of Social Democracy in the early 20th century for the establishment of universal suffrage, which aimed at nothing else than the containment and the destruction of the proletariat’s energy developed to put an end to misery and exploitation

Anarchist collective “Rouviconas” intervene at a private hospital in Athens, Greece (Metropolitan Hospital) against two Board of Directors members’ choice to terrorize the hospital’s employees with unemployment, if they were not taking part in a demonstration in favor of YES to austerity measures in the greek referendum, that took place on 5 July 2015. Then, to terrorize the hospital’s stuff even further they fired one of the accountants of the hospital because she supported the NO vote in the same referendum.

From The Barbarian Times

Tell us a little bit about what has happened concerning the academic leave of absence you have demanded within the new judicial framework after your hunger strike in November-December 2014.

It goes like this: I completed 1/3 of the course as required by the new regulation and I made the request for educational leave.

Oxi means Attack! Or How to scare the International Bourgeoisie 101

The people in Greece are under attack. This is not a revolutionary statement; Greece is under a coordinated assault by the European and International bourgeoisie, via their representatives in the ‘Institutions’. (SYRIZA’s attempts to rename the Troika to the ‘Institutions’ is nearly as revolutionary as them moving where the ticket inspectors stand in Syntagma Square Tube.) The efforts of the ‘Institutions’ are not in any attempt to solve the ‘Greek Debt Crisis’, (Itself another deliberate intervention by the bourgeoisie to make sure they were able to profit from the latest of Capitalism’s crisis.)
