(en) Greece, liberta salonica: Update from the demonstration (5/10) in Thessaloniki against US Secretary of State M. Pompeo's visit to Athens [machine translation]

Date Tue, 8 Oct 2019 10:36:15 +0300


A relatively small number of people marched against Mike Pompeo's visit and the new US-Greece Mutual Defense Agreement. to be signed and for an indefinite renewal of the Convention on the bases, their upgrading, the purchase of new military equipment, individual agreements for the development of trade, economic, energy and military relations between the two countries, which could not be missed by the agenda and the maximum possible cooperation in both the migration and upgraded and pro-war strategy of the Greek state in the region (with the backs and on behalf of local and multinational hydrocarbon mining companies). ---- Following the call of the Thessaloniki Freedom Initiative and the Anarchists' Collectivity from the East, an anarchist bloc was formed which was supported by 60 other comrades. The whole course (KKM-L, ANTARSIA, LAE, KEERFA, OKDE, FROM) did not exceed 250 people, while the anarchist bloc had a strong pulse with slogans against militarism, imperialism, nationalism, nationalism, nationalism war but also with slogans of solidarity with immigrants. Indicatively, they heard:

"PEACE TO PEOPLE-WAR IN NATO I WANT THE WORLD BROTHER

BLOCK CLASS TO NATIONALISM IN WAR IN NATO MILITARISM

POVERTY, POVERTY AND MILITARISM IN OUR COUNTRY IS THE ENEMY

WITH MIGRANTS WE ARE ALONG, REPRODUCTION TO NATO AND NATION

ORGANIZED AND ARMED BROADCASTER, LET'S STOP NATO MASSACRE "

Due to the organized and banner-based presence of the Popular Unity in concentration and on the march, the anarchist bloc kept a distinct distance from the rest of its body, even wanting to separate its position at street level from the anti-Turkish and anti-Macedonian nationalists. positions expressed in recent years by its leadership group that openly supported the rallies of the ND, the Golden Dawn, the church, the caravans, the cops, the fascists, the national troupe, as well as the 6-month presence of LA deputies n government set up in January 2015 (positions and keep following the agreement of February 20, 2015 in the corresponding Eurogroup).

We do not suffer from left-handedness. Existing political and tactical differences with leftist organizations are a field of enduring ideological struggle, opposition, convergence and divergence in demonstrations, in unions, in assemblies, in the real life of the working class and the oppressed. But our choice in recent years is either not to go out to joint demonstrations, to ask for leave or to keep distance from the UAE, or to do as we did today (and without ever doing so today in terms of physical violence or based on in - most of the time - our overwhelming numerical superiority but with arguments) is vital to us. And the reason for this hubris is not only based on the existence of political disagreement - even if it concerns crucial issues in this regard,

Because for the last two years and while the majority of the LAU has supported politically and tried to legitimize the rallies for Macedonia socially, the anarchist movement in the city has fought daily battles (ideological as well as materialistic on the streets) with the bourgeoisie. nationalist rallies - a race that managed to win at a heavy cost of course -.

So our presence today in the demonstration comes as a continuation of last April's campaign, as yet another point in trying to crush an anti-war movement that will be linked to labor struggles, migrant struggles, struggles oppressed from other parts of the globe, but and with struggles for the defense of the natural world, like a call that banners say, it wants to raise an internationalist and classical bloc in imperialism, militarism, war and capitalist "peace", far and wide. opposite national narratives.

And so we will continue.
