Breaking the sword of capital hanging over Exarcheia

The current situation of inundation, exhaustion & fear

The beginning of any counter insurgency from state and capital includes prolonged low intensity attacks. Exarcheia knows full well what this looks like and has with much success resisted it in the past. At the current moment, with capital in a worldwide state of hyper crisis, this mania throws everything it can towards areas that cannot be managed for profit generation. Our neighborhood is not only one of these areas but also the lighthouse that inspires others to fight for them and seek its refuge.

In solidarity with the okupied social centres/squats of Athens

From Autonomies

In a series of police operations in Athens, over the last ten days, four okupied social centres were cleared, including two that provided autonomous, self-managed housing for migrants.

The objective is clear: to discipline rebellious segments of the population (most notably, anarchists), or those who might think of rebelling, to place under State administration and policed surveillance, migrants-refugees, under a politics of social division and colonisation (and thereby trying to bring to end one of the richest experiences of radical “no-border politics” in recent memory), and to pacify the urban space for “investment and renewal”

Reduction of our incomes and simultaneous rise of the cost of living, smashing down our free time, overtaxation of the poor and exemption for the capital, privatizations, curtailment of labour and social rights, looting nature without even any pretext, criminalization of social and class struggles, inability of accessing a multitude of social needs like housing, healthcare, education, food, water, transportation, entertainment and recreation for the majority of the population.

Some words on the riots of 29th of March

From Traces of Fire

Jasmins and almond trees bloom from the bullet wounds and scars in the bodies of our fallen ones. The coming seeds of self-redress perch on the branches, ready to nourish those greedy-for-life. Drawn in blood; bitterness flows out, becomes fertilizer for the rage. The pine needles fall down embracing the honour of living as negator of servitude. Waves break, embracing the honour of dying fighting. Waters respond to the call of silence, they turn into fire, and a night like the 29th of March make a salutary spill-over. It’s exactly there that our dead friends accompany each of our step. It’s there that Sebastian Oversluij, Lambros Fountas, Mauricio Morales, Spiros Dravilas, Anna Campbell, Dimitris Armakolas, Javier Recabarren, all our comrades that left away, are bursting out of fire caressing eternity.

Greece, Athens : Responsibility Claim on 28.3.19 by Group for the Reconstruction of the Mediterranean Anarchist Triangle

From Act for Freedom Now!

Responsibility Claim
CONCERNING THE RECENT PROSECUTIONS IN ITALY
At the beginning of February the eviction of the squat ASILO OCCUPATO was ordered, a structure of the movement in the city of Turin, with a history of 24 years. The police don’t ‘play’ alone and the evacuation lasts one and a half days because of the resistance from the interior of the squat. Simultaneously all over the city gatherings, meetings, violent protests are being carried out. The carabinieri, in order to silence the reactions, transform entire neighbourhoods into quarantine zones, with blockades, arrests and the prohibition of circulation of traffic. Finally the authorities, as well as the eviction, arrest 6 comrades on charges of subversive activity based on actions against the CIE/CRP [detention centres for immigrants] as well as for solidarity with the revolts that have broken out inside them.

The only way to counter this strategy is to create an abundance of solidarity, rather than the scarcity they aim to produce. This is not just about Nikos Romanos and other specific imprisoned anarchists. It is about the future of resistance itself. And not just in Greece.

Anarchist Political Statement by Antonis Stamboulou of Revolutionary Struggle

From AMW English

I want to clarify in principle that what I will say is a political statement, not an apology, as I am anarchist and do not apologize to the state power. I also do not want to ask for any mitigation and I am entitled to the law, as the dispute here is another.
