Urgent Communique from Athens Anarchists

“State and Capital assassinate every day and not with bullets alone. We live the causes, we don’t wait for any occasions. Everyone to the streets: For dignity, for freedom, for Anarchy.” —Open anarchist assembly for multiform action

These moments are more than historical. We are witnessing for the first time since 1967 an attempt to impose a fascist police coup. If a parliamentary democracy are able to commit those crimes, the junta is something different and we have all have begun to understand that. The anarchist slogans in the streets are beginning to say bluntly: “DOWN THE JUNTA”.

A collusion of prosecutors, rectors, the upper classes, TV media and police, and still we do not know what other local and foreign forces have been mustered. You hear of missing people. The climate is heavy like under the junta.

From La Commune:

9-12-2009 : RECENT DAYS HAVE SEEN INCREDIBLE JUNTA ORGIES IN GREECE

EXAMPLES:

1 ) Cops with guns in the demonstrations.

2 ) Motorbike raids against protesters.

3 ) Cops following peaceful demonstrators in their tracks, wild and indiscriminate arrests.

4 ) Staged events such as the alleged assassination attempt against the rector of the Pritanea.

5 ) An enormous number of vague and even criminal charges and arresting people young and old.

6 ) Closing schools on the pretext of swine flu and the merciless beating of students who wanted to get to their schools.

7 ) Undercover cops kidnapping young protesters.

8 ) Higher level visible collaboration between Golden Dawn neo-nazis and the Police.

9 ) Secret meetings between Chrysohoides and the bosses of the TV channels and journalists to decide on how TV reporting was going to be done over these days.

10 ) Secret covert cameras and helicopters hovering constantly.

11 ) Zero tolerance makes a bitter orange and a stone against a bank a felony and a pretext for a police attack.

12 ) BAN on demonstrations and political gatherings in the conversion areas with massive police intimidation and outrageous controls/databasing.

13 ) Hacker attacks on indymedia, and sites of squatted places and TVXS (no borders TV), deleting comments.

14 ) Invasion and PREVENTIVE ARRESTS in many self-managed spaces.

15 ) In an Orwellian way anarchists and the rebels are referred to “fascists and Nazis!”.

16 ) Junta-like removal of asylum [in the universities].

AND HOW MUCH MORE!

Some of these things happened in isolation, and some only happened before under the junta in 1967-1974; others have never happened before, only now.

They never ever happened altogether in such a short space of time!

It seems that the crash which happened here and they are hiding, like the indomitable December, has the power to activate an emergency plan, a new ‘PLASTER CAST’ [repeating the pronuncement of the junta in 1967].

These moments are more than historical. We are witnessing for the first time since 1967 an attempt to impose a fascist police coup. If a parliamentary democracy are able to commit those crimes, the junta is something different and we have all have begun to understand that. The anarchist slogans in the streets are beginning to say bluntly: “DOWN THE JUNTA”.

A collusion of prosecutors, rectors, the upper classes, TV media and police, and still we do not know what other local and foreign forces have been mustered. You hear of missing people. The climate is heavy like under the junta.

THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO BE SILENT!

THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO RELAX!

EVERYBODY IN THE STREETS – SQUATS EVERYWHERE!

PLEASE HELP TO SMASH DOWN THE GREEK JUNTA!

THE REGIME IS GOING THE WAY OF 1967!
