(en) Greece, liberta salonica: Anti - fascination concentration Saturday 1/12 [machine translation]

Date Thu, 6 Dec 2018 08:49:55 +0200

The re-emergence of the Macedonian issue was a rare opportunity for every kind of nationalist and fascist dwelling to take a place in public speech and to try to promote its murderous political plans. The January nationalist rallies in Thessaloniki and Athens served this very purpose. It became apparent to the most naive, that the supposedly uncomplicated and non-political character of the rallies, advertised with so much diligence by the media, was simply a sheep that underneath it hid the beast - and as it turned out it did not take him much to feel certain and to reveal his real face. Somehow, the useful idiots turned into dangerous idiots. It is obvious that several trends in the far-right and nationalist space consider the time for a parliamentary party of the far right beyond the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn. But it is also obvious that the ideology of national unity that seeks to instill reconciliation with class and social inequality and oppression does not only benefit these circles but almost all of the sovereignty, as the spread of the nationalistic poison breaks the social basis and distracts it from its real problems and interests, especially during periods of capitalist crisis.

For years we have from this side of the border the absurd requirement that the Greek state in predominantly opposite to the name of another nation-state, which unfortunately is based on socially important part of Greek society. A requirement now tempered by the EU's desire to include the Republic of Macedonia within the NATO and the need to extend its sphere of influence. On the other side of the border we see a growing nationalism which aims to create and consolidate their own "national myth" and often gets completely ridiculous forms, but clearly neither little more ridiculous than the "own" our nationalism. A look at the photos of the two rallies confirms the verdict.

For us the name of the neighboring country is of no importance. But what we care about is that this story has been a cause that the fascists have exploited to legitimize their presence in the center of our city, that it was a push to spread the most mischievous, detestable and murderous ideology that has come to pass never mankind. On Saturday, one of the city's nationalist guerillas attempts to grab this "opportunity" again by calling for a fascist gathering and march in Thessaloniki.

That is what we care - and indeed very much!

In recent months, we have seen again and again the effort of various groups, as well as several more "neutral" shapes - the front of the first - to occupy public space. And, through the Macedonian, we have seen it temporarily succeed.

We saw all sorts of patriots rushing to present at nationalist rallies, side by side with declared Nazis, at the same time that they are not fascists. We saw Macedonian uniforms retreating from the wardrobe, the face of Megleandandros and the star of Vergina to re-roam everywhere, imaginative conspiratorial banners to roam (we really thank those who really did not hesitate to put on their banners the traditional -measure the slogans of the Macedonians "KILLUMINATI "And" ROTHSCHILD your end comes "); we saw Nazi slogans starring the" pure patriots "(" anarchists and Bolsheviks, this land does not belong to you "and" knife in the heart of every contradiction " stripped-up macedonomic ass beside priests with gas masks that impress the icons of Our Lady to appear on our screens, filling us with "national pride" (!). We saw in a few words the (fascist) fascists to seize a first-class chance to come to the fore, in a patchwork of frightening conspirators who believe in any unlikely shit that they call them - that the shockingly low level of their mental and perceptual abilities is responsible for covert aerial sprays with highly secretive supertechnology organized by secret services - and church obscuracies or partisan organizations that are accustomed to stomping sculptures and theatrical performances to exorcise them.

We have seen all the patriotic enmity often parade in the streets of our city. We saw the results of the total movement of the national torso and the fascists of his frontiers: arson of occupation of Libertatia, attacks on the ECC. School, in ESC Favela, to the Free Self-managed Theater Forwards, to fans and players of the self-organized football team of Progressive Toumba, to the occupation of Leslas Karagiannis 37, to the occupation of a former PIKA, to the former Necropolis in Alexandroupolis, to defecations of the Holocaust Monument of Jews and the Jewish cemetery, against migrants or passers-by because they carry Muslim religious symbols.

We saw fascists motivating student squats and extreme right slogans and symbols hanging out of schools. But we also saw the student community reacting to the rhetoric of hatred, which is so thoroughly reproduced by fascists and the media; to block nationalist occupations, often made without a collective decision by the student communities, by a group of nationalist students apparently motivated by those fascists who thought that the Macedonian is a first-rate opportunity to infect students' minds with hatred.

Whosoever intends not to stand fast as fascists turn our cities, squares, our schools into places that we all and all of us do not fit in. The world of the struggle, the exploited and the oppressed, all and all of us who have not forgotten the brutality of the historical past, must drastically abstain from any attempt to develop fascism, whatever the cause and whether it unfolds. We have to crush fascism in the whole social field in which we move and live: in the streets, in the work, in the schools and in the schools, in our neighborhoods.
