(en) Greece, Libertarians of Patras: UNIVERSITY COURSE - THURSDAY 6/9 - 19.00 - GEORGIOU SQUARE -- AGAINST EDUCATIONAL RESTRUCTURING AND STATE DEATH POLICY [machine translation]

Date Tue, 21 Sep 2021 10:11:14 +0300


TO BECOME OUR SCHOOLS FOCUS OF RESISTANCE AND STRUGGLE ---- We are at the beginning of the new academic year and a year and a half after the appearance of the pandemic in the country. The pile of anti-social and anti-educational bills that were passed in the previous period, as a continuation of the educational restructuring that the rulers have been trying for several years, have brought sweeping changes in the fields of education and especially in the universities. These changes are a full-blown attack on students, and especially on those in the lower classes. As if that were not enough, we students are once again shouldering the health, economic and social ills of state pandemic management, in the worst possible way. Having already passed three semesters of tele-education and four tele-examination periods, under unprecedented living conditions,

From the outset, the advent of the health crisis made it clear that the state was completely indifferent to the protection of human life, as it had not taken any substantial measures to protect the social majority. Having previously sought to degrade and dismantle the public health system, during the pandemic period the state never took substantial measures to stem the pandemic, such as setting up hospitals and ICU beds, recruiting medical and nursing staff, and taking protection measures. for employees and so on. Instead, he chose to impose successive lockdowns without real health effect, suppressing and promoting the narrative of "individual responsibility", through which he sought from the outset to pass on responsibilities for the criminal management of the pandemic to society itself. Thus, while it was obvious to all of us that the state is solely responsible for the situation we are in, they were trying to convince us that sometimes the protesters were to blame, sometimes the strikers, sometimes the students, even the hospital workers.

The issue of vaccination that has arisen in recent months is a monument to hypocrisy on the part of the rulers. It is a given that, no matter how much it is cut to the contrary, the state was not suddenly interested in protecting their lives from below. After feeding the various conspiracy theories and irrationality, today he is instrumentalizing the good of vaccination and through it on the one hand seeks to restore the narrative of individual responsibility and to find the perfect excuse in order not to proceed with any substantial measures to deal with the pandemic and cannibalism so as not to turn their social anger from the bottom up to those responsible for the tragic management of the pandemic, who are none other than the state and capital. A representative example is the new amendment that obliges unvaccinated students to take two rapid tests per week, while at the same time abolishing their free practice, as a result of which their costs are passed on to students as private clinics make a profit. The abolition of free diagnostics in the midst of the fourth wave of the pandemic is indicative of the indifference and hypocrisy of the rulers.

In such a difficult and dystopian period for the social majority, the students are also faced with the implementation of the law Kerameos - Chrysochoidis which brings disciplinary prosecutions, expulsions and cops in schools but also with the introduction of the Minimum Admission Base that excluded 40,000 students public higher education.

These latest moves on the part of the state are another link in the chain of anti-social provisions to the detriment of students and, more generally, those from below. The introduction of the minimum admission base (EBE) is a key pillar of the educational restructuring that has taken place in recent years. The expulsion of 40,000 students from universities, on the one hand, serves the profitability of private colleges, at the expense of public education, which is constantly degrading and on the other hand, intensifies class barriers, as thousands of students who will be expelled from higher education will be forced to go to labor market with little labor rights. In this way, they will become north in the plans of capital and its needs for cheap labor. At the same time, The radical changes brought by the EBE not only left departments with few to no admissions, leading to future closure or mergers, but also contribute to the transformation of schools into examination centers, intensifying the sense of competition among students, as they are increasingly invited. more to constantly prove their "value" and "ability", transferring the culture of elitism and "excellence" to the university. At the same time, these intensified rates of study in combination with the few admissions are destroying the universities and seeking to turn them into a sterile academic environment where there will be no room for political ferment, assemblies and trade unionism. but contribute to the transformation of schools into examination centers by intensifying the sense of competition among students, as they are increasingly called upon to continually prove their "value" and "ability" by transferring the culture of elitism and "excellence" to the university. .

Along with the EBE, a central position in the attack of the state and capital against students and society as a whole is held by the K-X law, which includes, among other things, the controlled entry to the university premises, the surveillance through cameras of all institutions, the establishment of a "Security and Protection Committee", the upgrading of the disciplinary code as well as the establishment of the University Institutions Protection Team (OPPI). With the above, the state seeks to criminalize any militant action of students who oppose the development plans of the state and capital for further expansion of class barriers and the creation of a university where attendance will be the prerogative of the few and the basic needs for feeding, housing and relocation will be fully commercialized.

However, the changes that have taken place in the universities do not remain in the reactionary provisions that have already been mentioned, but go further and hit every aspect of students' lives. The laws that have been passed in the previous period set the attendance limit n + 2 for fourth-year schools and n + 3 for those that require more years of study, which will result in the mass expulsion of students. It is a clear retaliatory measure that comes with statement boundaries, course chains and aims to discipline students and turn the university into an incubator of highly skilled, docile and flexible workers who will be productive to ensure greater profitability. of bosses and submissive to their commands and appetites. In fact, any student who finds it difficult to cope with the increasingly intensive pace of study is punished by expulsion, any student in this class-structured society is punished by belonging to the lower social strata and can not cover the growing tuition costs. Any student who considers it his inalienable right to determine the pace at which he will study and the years it will take to receive his degree is punished, since the system itself is what pushes many of us into the blackmailing condition of black, uninsured work to make a living so that we can study at the same time. Virtually every student is punished either because of their inability to afford their studies,

In all this situation that is being described and considering the attack we are receiving, it is necessary for us, the students, to take matters into our own hands and to fight for our interests. Against the sharpening of class barriers, against the sterilization of universities and the denervation of struggles inside and outside schools, against the criminalization of social and class resistance and the suppression of demonstrations, to be inspired by the struggles of the past and to catch its thread resistance and struggle. From the Polytechnic of 73 ', the dynamic mobilizations in 06'-07' with the law of Giannakou, and in '11 with the law of Diamantopoulou to remember that nothing was given to us, everything is won through struggles. The temporary suspension of the measure for the entry of the police in the universities is a result of the dynamic mobilizations carried out by the student movement all the previous months. To demand the lifelong conduct of courses without extortionate tactics that oil the state death policy and divide them from below, to demand that all necessary measures be taken to protect students (free rapid tests, masks, antiseptics, the existence of spacious ventilated rooms , conducting classes with fewer students per room, regular cleaning of the premises and taking breaks at regular intervals and so on). In the face of the culture of defeatism, individualism and assignment, let us promote faith in collective struggle, solidarity and self-organization. To turn the schools into living centers of struggle, into places of collective discussion, fermentation, challenge and resistance. As long as the state-capitalist system continues to contribute to the intensification of exploitation and oppression in the field of universities, so do we, with decision-making bodies, general assemblies, weapons coordinated - at the base - lasting occupations and mass demonstrations and the autonomous vehicle and militant student-class unionism, we will defend at all costs the interests and needs of our class.
