(en) Greece, Text on the occasion of the "Macedonian" that is shared in schools and tutorials by dirty horse APO (gr) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 6 Mar 2018 09:17:40 +0200

Draft notes on the "Macedonian issue" ... ---- The nation is nothing more than a built-in "imaginary" community that creates a sense of belonging to people based on fake criteria such as the common origin (the soil), the common blood, race and language (the homonym, and homoglossus). ---- The nationalism is the ideology of nation identification with the state, which implies the recognition of people as national subjects that make up the nation states. The attempt to impregnate people with national consciousness is a foundation stone for the maintenance of the state and the promotion of the geographic and economic interests of the people above and not of the people. The constitution of nation states opens new ways for states to implement their aggressive and tendency-expanding policies, as they now acquire all those qualities that display territorial expansion as a "national right" as a necessity for the purposes of the imaginative community of the nation. Thus, hatred for "others" is promoted on the basis that they do not belong to "us".
The expansive policy of the Greek state towards the north on the occasion of the "Macedonian question" is the result of precisely this separation based on a cultivated hatred for others who must cease to exist. About one in three inhabitants of Greek Macedonia had Slavic Macedonian in 1912 as their mother tongue. In 1965, service reports estimated 130-150,000 Slav-speaking residents of only three prefectures (Florina, Kastoria and Pella). At the beginning of the 21st century, "locals" are still spoken in much of Northern Greece. The eradication of this Slav-language was considered to be - and has remained so far - the major "national target" in the region because it prevented the formation of a Greek national identity.
The internationalism is the meaning and the political position that opposes the "community of the nation" community of proletarians. That is, the community of people based on common material interests and common meanings, ideas and feelings that flow from the common reality they live in. Exploiting and oppressing the peoples is an unfathomable argument for the constitution of a community of people who can not divide them from metaphysical quests of historical and geographical origin. As a result, internationalism will emphatically promote the cooperation of the peoples on the basis of solidarity, respect and mutual assistance.
The issue of naming and self-determination is an inalienable right of every person and group. As the state and the bosses put it today, it does nothing else than serve specific geopolitical interests and NATO-based plans in the wider Balkan region, eastern Europe and the southeastern Mediterranean, at a time when the clouds of a world war are thickening and state competitions are increasing. It is not the name, but the conditions of slavery, unemployment, poverty, war and refuge that plague the peoples. And these must unite us and mobilize us to take them away.
The nationalist rallies for Macedonia mobilizing the most conservative reflexes of society, is a picture of the future they want to impose on us, from the warring communities fear will dominate, misery, death. It is yet another push to find tomorrow the nation states to continue the wars against humanity worldwide. It is another opportunity that the fascists will find today to attack and suppress the action of social and class movements
The only answer on our part must be the anti-fascist struggle on the streets, in schools, in schools, in neighborhoods, in the work to keep the prospect of creating a better world without fake divisions, without frontiers and states, a world of justice , equality, solidarity and freedom.
Against nationalist wars, poverty, state totalitarianism and capitalist barbarism ... the constant struggle for social revolution, anarchy and libertarian communism.

No nation unites us! No name separates us!
