(en) Greece, LIBERTATIA WE ARE US // Neighborhood By APO (gr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 3 Mar 2018 10:43:40 +0200


A few weeks ago, we witnessed an event that shattered negatively the neighborhood of Faliro in Thessaloniki. The arson of occupation of Libertatia, the neoclassical building at the contribution of L. Arthur & Sarantaporos, the roof of some people and libertarian ideas, one of the few old buildings preserved in this city. This was the day of the Macedonian rally, where the crowd closed the streets to come out to defend the "Greekness" of Macedonia. Once again, in society, pseudo-dilemmas are spreading that disorientate it from reality, offering fertile ground to its creeping fascism. ---- And all this in Thessaloniki. In the formerly multicultural capital of the Balkans, the city of refugee, persecution and extermination of the Jews and other populations, the murdered 36-year-old workers, the torture-winning paramedic criminals, the great poor. In all the crimes of fascism and nationalism that happened in this city came the addition of the arson of a historic building with more than a century of life. Unfortunately, however, anyone who does not remember his story is doomed to relive her. (excerpt from the political occupation of occupation libertatia on 29.01)

A Few Words on the Occupation of Libertatia.

"LIBERTATIA, means libertarian-inspired by the semi-mythical liberal community of pirates around 1600. As before, the waves of our lives have led us to a self-managed raft for freedom." (From the first pamphlet of occupation " The need for housing and the solution to occupation as a means of revolutionary action "

In 2008, the mansion was occupied at the corner of the Army and Sarantaporos, re-living life after many years of desolation. We tried to make it sustainable and we did it, which, due to its age and its architecture, was done with great effort, with money from our lag and help for companions. Of course we did not expect any rewards, our satisfaction was moral and political. The assembly of occupation laid the foundations based on equality and anti-hierarchy. This created a place open to all those struggling to overthrow a social system based on exploitation. In the summer of '09 there was a call in the neighborhood to meet in the neighborhood to meet. This is because the neighborhood for us is and remains vital and space for intervention, so any event was addressed to us (with texts, posters, interventions). Our good relationship with this is even demonstrated today, when during the attack the crowd went out to the balconies shouting to the fascists, who of course replied with bruises and flares. Anyway, the world of the neighborhood knows well who and why they burned the occupation, is next to us and supports us, and this attitude gives us the power to stay in the building and to repair the damage. Our good relationship with this is still evident today, where during the attack the people came out to the balconies shouting to the fascists, who of course responded with bruises and flares.

Besides our ideas, Libertatia housed ourselves, housed the needs of people without the rent of rent, people who did not have the ability to rent a home, such as immigrants and people of the lower social class.

The occupation despite the difficulties of the building kept a steady social profile without, of course, losing its political identity. The movie projections of the filmmaking team were almost every week, just like the occupation bar. The concerts were also frequent. But one of the most important activities was the structure of self-education. Like every revolutionary movement that existed before, and set its foundations on education, we also tried to study revolutionary theory and history. By opening it to society, we set the terms of our revolutionary function: "action requires knowledge and knowledge of education". All of this will of course continue to exist because Libertatia will stay. Work has begun and we are ready.

But the problem is not just the destruction of an occupation. The problem is the fascism and the society that nourishes it. Fascism is not only the golden dawn and the various far-right groups, nor all those "bad" things we know from history that it did, but passivity and apathy, is the society that follows history but not the changes, does not speak, and does not take position. It is clear to everyone that what happened could not be done without the cover-up of the rally. Let everybody therefore consider his attitude to fascism.

In closing, we would like to say that the decision to rebuild the building stems from our will to respond to the disastrous tendency of fascism. For us, occupations are not their dwarves, but people - are the relationships that are built within them. It's struggle struggles that take us to the road. The occupations are us. And we will prove that the anti-fascist movement has the will, the forces and the determination to rebuild what has been destroyed. The Libertatiawill be left and the building will be rebuilt on our own, with our own people. This will be the best response to the state and its fascist gangs. It is a great bet for the world of struggle all this process and its ultimate success will show that we can live and create without the state, capital and power. It is a battle that has to be won and won.

Libertatia, a collective for libertarian communism
