AGAINST STATE AND capitalist barbarity ---- The all-out attack of the state and the bosses and the continuous introduction of new burdensome conditions of exploitation and oppression express the overall violent restructuring of the state and the capitalist mode of social organization. ---- The current political management of power, has taken both the uninterrupted continuation of political subjugation and impoverishment of society and the restoration of the regime in crisis conditions. After the illusions fostered, for the existence of a "human capitalism" that can meet social needs now collapsing and unable to draw further consent to its designs, increasingly reveals the true anti-social face of state and capitalist powers. ---- The SYRIZA-ANEL government from driver's position serves more apochalinomena exploitation plans of big business, the "red lines" are longer comic stories with tragic results but for the world of work. Pensioners and unemployed come again under attack, as pensions are reduced, main and auxiliary, while the tax-free limit is emblematic indicator of progressive impoverishment. In particular the adoption of the 4th Memorandum includes reduction of untaxed EUR 5,681, reducing unemployment allowance, heating allowance reduction, child benefit, disaster aids, poverty allowance, new layoffs in the public sector, open shops on Sundays, privatization of public wealth and natural resources by selling plants and electricity infrastructure and privatization of HEP, the Athens International Airport, THPA and DEPA.Eisagogi drugs in supermarkets, release collective redundancies and removing collective bargaining, abolition of the tax credit for medical expenses, non-transfer of the widow's pension and essentially bulk deletions from the OAED through bureaucratic tricks, designed, except others in a fictional impression reduction in unemployment and growth, demonstrating the ease with which made the numbers and their true value.

While those resistances failed to neutralize through kapilefsi, assimilation and integration, those struggles failed to stop because of frustration and defeatism climate brought about in society after the frustration of hopes she nourished, now attempts to destroy the basis increasingly to repressive mechanisms. Tracks the development of the wider offensive planning by the state and capital to society are the occupations discharges the chtypimadomon movement from fascists and mercenaries of capital, arrested antifascists, criminalization interventions in workplaces, the criminalization base unions, istochopoiisi struggling workers -as in Mass transport; and entire neighborhoods struggling against mafias and social cannibalism.


From our side, the side of the unemployed, the workers, the poor, the plebeians history of social and class resistance, the strength of fights that break out globally across the bleak reality imposed on us internationally and our faith for that another world is possible are those that show us how to break the isolation, how to fight back the fear and frustration. Away from the institutions, parliaments, elections, bureaucratic trade union leaderships, their hope traders and intermediaries of the class struggle are preparing our counterattack against the rulers. Because what we have to gain is a result of the broad, organized on the basis of radical and militant struggles of the bottom.

Only the total subversion of the state and capitalism, social expropriation of wealth that we ourselves produce and sucks a caste of rulers, and the social revolution for a new common ownership society, solidarity and freedom can vindicate their aspirations and actual social needs oppressed and exploited.
