(en) Greece, Land & Freedom: APO calls for a demonstration on the 8th anniversary of the murder of Pavlos Fyssas [machine translation]

Date Sat, 18 Sep 2021 09:21:30 +0300

STATE AND CAPITAL BORN FASCISM ---- WE DO NOT FORGET - WE DO NOT FORGIVE THE MURDER OF ANTIFASCIST P. FYSSA on 18/9/2013 in Keratsini by the goldsmith G. Roupakias and the paramilitary raiding battalion of ATHEX. ---- On September 18, 2013, a paramilitary battalion attacking the Golden Dawn carries out a murderous attack in Keratsini, from which the antifascist Pavlos Fyssas falls dead, stabbed in the heart by the goldsmith G. Roupakias. It was another episode of the murderous actions of the ATHEX parastatal gang against anarchist and leftist activists, trade unionists, refugees and immigrants, occupied and self-governing areas of struggle. Because the fascists strike where the state policy itself, the interests of the bosses and the regime propaganda of the media point them: against the wildest exploited part of society and against the militants, who are declared to be the target of state repression.

It is a fact that the ATHEX, since its establishment in the 80's, has functioned as a state actor and subordinate, catching the thread from the past of its political ancestors, the Hittites and the security guards of the occupation and the civil war and inheriting the parastatal action of Gotzamanids who killed Lambrakis, but also the centaurs and ONNED rangers who killed the militant professor Nikos Temponera. Its main direction, both of the organization itself and of the state that led it, was to soften the resistance of society by acting as a complement and / or instead of formal repression, as well as to develop the most conservative and reactionary social instincts, dissolving those collective, class and social ties, thus contributing to social emphasis.

In the midst of a deep political and economic crisis, especially after the social uprising of December 2008, and in the face of the mass mobilizations of the following years against poverty and the impoverishment of the memorandum policies, the regime chose to reward all its murderous gang with media, as a tool in the context of a broader counter-insurgency and counter-revolutionary strategy, with two main objectives: on the one hand to terrorize its political opponents by Nazi strike groups, and on the other to rally the most reactionary elements of the population around the Nazi the recruitment of a part of it into intolerance, racism, the consolidation of totalitarianism and violence against the weak class, in order to spread the social emphasis,to target the outcasts for the sufferings brought about by the policy of the state and the bosses, and to leave the powerful untouched.

In the face of the prospect of expressing the accumulated social anger that followed the assassination of P. Fyssas, the state refers ATHEX to trial as a criminal organization, seeking to appear as the only body of justice and guarantor of social normalcy. In these seven years, both the "institutional antifascism" that tried to wash the state of the responsibility of orchestrating the neo-Nazi parastatal action and to consolidate the theory of the two extremes, as well as the parastatal action on the sidewalk itself, found strong opposition. , decisive, continuous and relentless anti-fascist action. The mass and militant anti-fascist mobilizations were the real obstacle to the rise of the fascists and the attacks they carried out, with the result that today they have entered strong embankments in their campaign in the public sphere.

We have not had and do not have illusions about the role of civil justice. Any convictions of fascists by her, can not deceive us. We do not forget that the struggle against fascism is part of the overall struggle against capitalism and the state. As anarchists-anti-authoritarians, through social-class struggles we stand against a powerful system that promotes inequalities, hierarchy and divisions. We fight inside and outside the courtrooms, in all social fields, in the daily struggles for equality, solidarity, freedom.

On October 7, 2021, we were together with tens of thousands of protesters outside the Athens Court of Appeals, in one of the largest anti-fascist rallies of all time in Greece. Without delusions about the role of civil justice and its decisions, through the dynamic gathering and the clashes with the uniformed police killers on Alexandra Avenue, we shouted with all our might that we were not there to fight fascism together with the the state, the government, the late antifascism of the media (which for so many years have been systematically and deliberately laundering their criminal activity) and all sorts of institutional fans of a retaliatory and hypocritical antifascism, but on the contrary,

Today - where society suffers another severe blow due to the murderous management of the pandemic, which accelerates restructuring, with the rupture of the social base and the deprivation of the necessary social goods, and the plunder of nature, which perpetuates the State of Emergency. State repression is the dominant strategy of the state - the reactionary forces reappear in the public sphere. Either as exponents of conspiracy theories clearly coming from the far right and acting as a complement to official anti-social plans, aiming to dismantle collective, social and class ties, or as fascist groups emerging under the protection of repressive mechanisms,

In the face of state and capitalist barbarism, the only realistic perspective from below is the organization and struggle for the Social Revolution. Without illusions that the system of exploitation and oppression can be embellished, without illusions that any government or state institution can be a barrier to the monster of fascism, to fight collectively and militantly with our weapon international and class solidarity to build a world of equality, and freedom.
