Genoa: Sabotage against Italsite Spa in solidarity with anarchist prisoners (Italy)

July 14th, 2015

AGAINST THE DICTATORSHIP OF TECHNOLOGY

The present society is without doubt best described as a technocratic system where global science operates unrestrained and the products they put on the market dominate and govern life.

The multinational companies maintain their dominion over the planet via the States and their international institutions (UN, EU, IMF, ECB).

The hyper-technological society is the perfect accompaniment to meet two primary requirements of Power: profit and social control.

Thanks to the modern deities of science and technology, profit knows no limits with endless military contracts and an incredible amount of useless products continuously marketed.

Social control of life is now becoming more and more widespread as it evolves from simple surveillance cameras to the use of nanotechnology.

The people, already deprived of their autonomy and their own free wll are indoctrinated into this fabulous world of science via a partial and fictitious access to technology.

With the chimera of improving the quality of life the only real effects are unbridled production, the atrophying of people’s minds and abilities, the cancellation of genuine emotions and finally life itself.

Meanwhile what remains of nature is devastated to build mega-projects to ensure the speedier travel of goods and faster access to information.

Meanwhile the general indifference continues as television transmits images of people massacred and starved to exploit the resources required to increase the production of consumer goods.

For once we decided to evade control and threaten the profits of the technocratic society.

We set fire to the power cables for a repeater owned by Italsite Spa, a company that specializes in the telecommunications sector in Italy and Europe.

FOR THE IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF MARCO CAMENISCH

IN SOLIDARITY WITH ANARCHIST PRISONERS IN ITALY, CHILE, GREECE, SPAIN AND MEXICO

Santiago: Incendiary sabotage against PROQUIMSA industries ($hile)

July 14th, 2015

“Life is a journey by parachute, and not what you want to believe. We are falling, falling from our zenith to our nadir, and we leave the air stained with blood to poison those who will come to breathe it tomorrow. Within yourself, outside yourself, you will fall from your highest to lowest point because that is your destiny, your miserable destiny. And the higher you fall from, the higher you will bounce, and the longer you will be remembered by the stone. We have jumped from our mother’s bellies or the edge of a star, and we are falling. Oh, my parachute, the sole perfumed rose of the atmosphere, the rose of death, tumbling between the stars of death. Have you heard? That is the sinister noise of closed breasts. Open the door of your soul and come out to breathe outside. You can open the door that the hurricane slammed, with only a whisper.” [Vicente Huidobro, Altazor]

On Tuesday, June 9, according to one of the many calendars of domination. Our contradictory wrists carry watches that indicate that it’s ten till two in the morning. The cold is chilling, but we’re well equipped. Long minutes walking to enter the outskirts of the industrial park Lo Boza, in the municipality of Pudahuel – a territory substantially faded by the uncontrolled advance of the techno-industrial system and the active complicity of the submissive population, which has been enchanted by this regime of hate and death. “Where the waters meet” was once home to fertile, colorful land; for the time being, it is a deposit of human waste, orderly zombies arriving early to work in the morning. The air is torn by hundred airplanes that land with impunity on the high-density concrete of the Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport, the soil is dirtied by industries that spring up faster than mushrooms in the Valdivian forest, the water is “mis-treated” by some of the largest water treatment plants in South America.

Update on the case of the comrades Javier Pino and Natalia Collado ($hile)

July 13th, 2015

Now that the investigative period is over and we await the hearing date for Javier Pinto and Natalia Collado, as a close group of friends we wanted to inform and disclose how our comrades were accused of burning a Transantiago bus three months ago and were taken from us.

THE FACTS

In the early morning of April 7, at the corner of Ecuador and Concon, located in the community of Estación Central, the darkness was interrupted with the scene of a burning route 210 Transantiago bus that was completely consumed by fire.

Minutes later Natalia Collado (Tato) and Javier Pino were arrested in Alameda, outside USACH (University of Santiago Chile) and detained on suspicion as their appearance allegedly coincided with descriptions given to the police by the bus driver who reported the fire.

The comrades were taken to Central Police Station 21 where they were told that the bus driver recognized them as two people who boarded the bus without paying at the corner of Alameda and Cumming and left a bag in the back seat before exiting from the rear door of the bus. Tato and Javier were then transferred to the BIPE (Police Brigade of Special Investigations) where they both had DNA samples forcibly taken from them. By now relatives, close friends and comrades who had heard about the arrest began to demonstrate out the front in solidarity with both comrades. Also as usual, the press began to appear in order to caputre the faces of our comrades for the television cameras. The following morning as they were taken to court Javier yelled at the press “Down with anthropocentric patriarchal society!” Read the rest of this entry »

Statement by Nikos Maziotis to the appeals court at the first trial of the Revolutionary Struggle on July 7 – Concerning the bankruptcy of the country (Greece)

July 13th, 2015

As is well known, the repressive attack by the state against Revolutionary Struggle in 2010, as an historical fact, was a counterpart to the signing of the first memorandum by the Papandreou government and bringing the country under the authority of the IMF, the ECB, and the EU. As was said at the time by a government official, our arrests prevented “a large terrorist attack that would have ended the economy,” a statement proving the dangerousness of the action of Revolutionary Struggle at a critical juncture for the regime.

The first trial against the organization was in the period of the application of the first memorandum, developments that included controlled bankruptcy proceedings and imposed a social policy of genocide and euthanasia towards segments of the population that caused thousands of deaths so far, and poverty, hunger and misery. When the first trial started in October 2011, we had stated that the trial was conducted in a period awaiting formal bankruptcy of the country, which did not happen then, because there was unveiled a controlled bankruptcy regime in order to save the lenders, the then holders of Greek bonds and to defend the Eurozone from the risk of transmission of the Greek crisis.

It is an irony of history that ultimately the bankruptcy of Greece is associated with the days of the leftist Syriza government almost four years later, which announced a referendum on the question YES or NO to the proposals of lenders for the new memorandum that they will sign. Along with the bankruptcy of the country comes the bankruptcy of the left social-democratic illusions that promised state interventions in favor of the workers and the poor of the EU inside a globalized neoliberal environment.

Izhevsk: Oleg Serebrennikov, anti-fascist and anarchist, needs help and international solidarity (Russia)

July 13th, 2015

Hello, my name is Oleg Serebrennikov. I’m 32 years old and I’ve been anti-fascist and socialist over the last 15 years, so I am one of the few people who was at the origin of the anti-fascist movement in Izhevsk.

During all that time, the Nazis and the police have been preventing me from leaving a normal life; there were many attacks, threats and acts of intimidation from the neo-Nazis. Apart of that, the local police was trying to initiate criminal proceedings etc.

On 23 February 2004 after a protest against the war in Chechnya, some Nazis attacked me and almost killed, there were about 20-25 people, for me it ended up in quite a sad way – I was taken to hospital and diagnosed a brain contusion with hemorrhage, craniocerebral injury and a number of other problems. Unfortunately, I have not received any adequate treatment at an early stage of the illness, so, a few years later my health condition started deteriorating dramatically.

July 12th, 2015

July 10: Statement on the Conclusion of Operation Cmdr. Rubar Qamishlo, Briefed By Cmdr. Sozdar Derik in July 10 Press Conference

For the Media and Public Opinion

ROJAVA, Syria (July 10, 2015) – A major military exercise, Operation Commander Rubar Qamisho, which was initiated by combined forces of the People’s Defense Units, Women’s Defense Units, alongside fighters from the Burkan al-Firat (Euphrates Volcano, Free Syrian Army) Joint Operations Room and the effective support of the Anti-ISIS International Coalition – in order to liberate the rural district to the west of Jazira (Cizire) region of Rojava, Syria – managed to achieve incredible and historical successes. The terror of the Daesh (ISIS) organization which treaded on all human values and inspired fear in hearts of the region’s people with their vicious attacks, was delivered with significant blows in the group’s largest setback since its foundation.

As before this operation, a strategic defeat was inflicted to the ISIS terrorists in the city of Kobani. After that conquest, two of the tactical military sites for the terrorists – Til Hemis and Til Berak – were liberated and the terrorist threats were eliminated in that region.

While directing the operation in Til Hemis and Til Berak, the Daesh terrorist carried out a major offensive against the Assyrian, Syriac, Arab and the Kurdish people living in line extent of Til Temir and Hasakah. In that way the Daesh terrorists tried very much to obstacle our movement in Til Hemis and Tel Berak as well as fighting our forces in a broader region, so that it could accomplish victory against our Units.

Fuck Islam! – Fuck Ramadan! : Thousands arrested and sentenced to flogging for not obeying religion (Iran)

July 11th, 2015

Dear Friends, during the bloody month of “ramadan”, the rich will explode of eating from the sunset till sunrise and the situation of innocent brainwashed poor by religion, become worse and worse. Many of them become more ill and suffering goes to sky high level.
دوستان عزیز, برای دیدن توضیح فارسی لطفا همیشه روی “سی‌ مور و یا کا نتینو ریدینگ” کلیک کنید!
Above photo is showing you the true situation of bloody rich and innocent poor during this horrified month.

Islam has nothing to defend and we’re opposite to the fake leftists, who stay silent on brutality of islam, under the name of defending muslims or being against islamophobia, etc., we Middle Eastern Anarchists say it loudly and without fear:

Fuck islam (religion), fuck capitalism and barbarism !!

Free Middle East, Free The World

دوستان, عزیزان, نازنینان, همانگونه که می دانیم, هر ساله در ماه کشنده ی رمضان میلیون ها انسان بی گناه که در فقر و تنگ دستی زندگی می کنند شرایط زندگی شان به مراتب اسفناک تر می شود

انسان های تهی دستی که در اثر فقر مالی کوچک ترین امکاناتی برای آموزش ندارند, به راحتی طعمه کاسبان فاشیست دینی و سرمایه قرار می گیرند. بر ماست که به هر طریقی که ممکن است, چه در کوچه و خیابان و کار با بی خانمان ها و چه در هر مکان دیگری, مردم تهی دست را آگاه سازیم. تا به جای افتادن در دام این دین مداران پلید و صاحبان سرمایه و ثروت, برعلیه آنان به پا خیزند و دارایی خویش را از آنان باز پس بگیرند, و آنها را به زباله دانی تاریخ بسپارند.

The barbaric punishment of flogging by islamic regime in Iran.
480 sentenced to lashing in Iran for drinking water or eating at day time during Ramadan.
دوستان عزیز, برای دیدن توضیح فارسی لطفا همیشه روی “سی‌ مور و یا کا نتینو ریدینگ” کلیک کنید!
At least 500 people have been arrested and sentenced to flogging in Shiraz, Iran, for failing not to follow the fasting time during bloody month of Ramadan.

Since Ramadan began on June 18, at least 500 people have been arrested and punished brutally. A punishment that their life will end up into the wheelchair as a result of damages to the body. This is the report of one city only. (In Shiraz).

Anyone in Iran caught eating or drinking in public during daytime in Ramadan will receive 74 lashes in addition to a jail term …

Last year, a Christian man in Iran had his lips burnt with a cigarette for eating during the day in Ramadan. The savage punishment was carried out in public in the city of Kermanshah.

The number of floggings across Iran is much higher than officially announced.

NO GOD, NO MASTER, NO FASCISM, NO BORDERS !!

از شروع ماه نحس رمضان تا کنون تنها در یک شهر ایران (شیراز) بیش از ۵۰۰ نفر دستگیر و محکوم به ۷۴ ضربه شلاق و یا زندان شده اند.

قابل توجه است که صدمات ضربه شلاق به قدری شدید است که در اکثر موارد شخص بی گناه در اثر آسیب دیدگی استخوان و مهره های بدن , دیگر تا آخر عمرمعیوب مانده و زندگیش بر روی صندلی چرخدار ( معلولین ) به پایان خواهد رسید.

لازم به ذکر است که تعداد محکومین خیلی خیلی بالاتر از عدد فوق می باشد.

Interview with anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos (Greece)

July 10th, 2015

Tell us a little bit about what has happened concerning the academic leave of absence you have demanded within the new judicial framework after your hunger strike in November-December 2014.

It goes like this: I completed 1/3 of the course as required by the new regulation and I made the request for educational leave. From that point on began the theater of the absurd. The prison board decided that the new regulation cannot be put into effect, it requires a joint ministerial decision and so it sent the request to the special appellate magistrate E. Nikopoulos, in line with the previous law. Nikopoulos issued a negative response because there is no ministerial decision and one cannot get into the merits of the application as the new judicial framework annuls and takes the place of the prior one. Based on the negative opinion of Nikopoulos, the Board rejected the leave request in its turn as the decision of the trial judge is binding.

In light of this fait accompli, SYRIZA -which during the hunger strike concentrated on electioneering and brutal political exploitation on the backs of the people who made up the polymorphic solidarity movement- plays the role of Pontius Pilate, just like its predecessors. But of course this should come as no surprise since we are talking about politicians- that is to say, total bastards, political swindlers, opportunists, hypocrites and professional chameleons, who for a small time wore the costume of the humanist to serve certain political purposes. Of course there are more important reasons for that development, but I’ll keep this explanation for a later question. Concerning the progress of my case, theoretically speaking, there should be a ministerial decree to implement the new regulation, but I don’t think there is much possibility for that to happen.

Sabotaje a linea de tren y ataque a asociacion Helenica en Buenos Aires (Argentina)

July 9th, 2015

Sobran las razones para actuar, las motivaciones y urgencias. También en muchxs sobran las excusas para no hacerlo. Siempre eligiremos concientemente la primera opción. El sábado 4 de julio minutos antes de que comenzara la final de la “copa américa” la cual disputarían futbolistas millonarios de chile y argentina, saboteamos las vías del tren que une a la ciudad de la plata con la estación de constitución, demostramos por un lado nuestra repulsa al espectáculo idiotizante que conllevo la realización de este torneo el cual claramente se uso como tapadera para las harteras maniobras del poder. Nos repulsa la algarabía patriotera de lxs subditxs de la cual se nutren ambos estados, al igual que innumerables empresas y particulares patrocinadorxs. Por otro lado, fue un claro gesto de complicidad y cariño con lxs compañerxs encarceladxs en la región chilena, prisiones que en algunos casos se dieron gracias a la cooperación de ambos estados.

War against ISIS/Daesh: Open letter from the MLKP-Turkey in solidarity with the arrested combatants of the International Brigade (Spain)

July 9th, 2015

Dear comrades,

We send you our warmest revolutionary greetings in solidarity with the two comrades who are arrested by the Spanish state for being fighters for humanity.

This attack against the two comrades who went to Rojava to fight there against the fascist Daesh gangs, is not only an attack against them and your party, its an attack against the international revolutionary movement and against all people who fight against fascism and imperialism. In this moment they attack two of yours but they mean to attack all of us. In this situation the international solidarity is our biggest weapon.

The comrades fought in a legitimate and rightful struggle in Rojava and the people of Rojava will never forget what they did there! We are strongly condemn this repression of the Spanish bourgeois state. Resistance and the fight for humanity, freedom and democracy is not terrorism!

Long live international solidarity!

Long live the international freedom battalion!

Long live the legitimate and rightful fight in Rojava!

Long live PML (RC)!

With revolutionary greetings,

MLKP

Network of Revolutionary Cells take responsibility for two arson attacks against police vehicles in the context of the fight against ‘Operation Fenix’ (Czech Republic)

July 8th, 2015

SRB (Network of Revolutionary Cells communique: Police car torched in response to Operation Fenix

In the early hours of Saturday, July 4, 2015 we torched a police car outside the Praha-Bubny police station. This was in response to the police and state repression against anarchists. Since April 28, 2015 when the police launched ‘Operation Fenix‘, four anarchists have been arrested and held in custody. Wild Heart Cell sends a message with this sabotage: We will not tolerate such violence by the state and we will fight against it!

With the launch of ‘Operation Fenix’ cops have declared war against the anarchist movement. They thought they could scare us into giving up. They have made a mistake, we will never give up. We are moving into counterattack.

They want to suffocate the resistance but they only add more fuel to the fire.

SRB (Network of Revolutionary Cells) Communique: Police car torched in solidarity with Alešem Kočím

On Wednesday, July 1st, 2015, a police car was set on fire in Prague. It occurred on the outskirts of the park near the Srašnická metro station. As part of the ongoing struggle an SRB cell attacked the police car to send a fiery greeting to Alešem Kočím. For his anarchist beliefs in class warfare, Alešem fell into the hands of the state. On the 28th April, 2015 he was detained by the police during ‘Operation Fenix’ and was subsequently charged with possession of illegal weapons. He now sits in custody as a prisoner of the state.

The state and it’s institutions have a huge arsenal of weapons and have created a monopoly on their use. They constantly use them in order to keep the capitalist construct in motion – the network of exploitative and oppressive relations. Anarchists do not accept the state’s monopoly on weapons. Anarchist praxis confronts the values the defend and reproduce state violence. State violence against anarchists builds insurgent violence.

Alešem Kočím is an anarchist who disrupted the state’s monopoly on the use of weapons by being armed. SRB supports such a stance. While Alešem is in the hands of the enemy this limits his potential for future struggle but we do not intend to accept this situation. Incendiary words, fire, weapons and explosives – it’s all part of our struggle. Revolutionary struggle against the violence perpetrated by the state to preserve the misery of capitalism. So far we have only used fire to ignite cars. Next time however will not be the same.

War against ISIS/Daesh: Two arrests as members of the International Brigade have their homes raided in Madrid (Spain)

July 7th, 2015

URGENT: 2 SPANISH MEMBERS OF INTERNATIONAL BRIGADE ARRESTED

During this morning, the repressive forces of the Spanish State are carrying out the arrest of the comrades who have been fighting the fascist forces of DAESH (Islamic State) in Rojava. Due to the lack of further information, we ask you for support, solidarity and spreading the message.

The homes of the comrades were searched by investigators of the Provincial Brigade Intelligence Office of the Madrid police. These comrades are two militants of the Partido Marxista-Leninista (Reconstrucción Comunista) that are accused by the police of appearing in the video above. Police said that the two activists came into Syria via Turkey and Germany. They are accused of participating in an armed conflict outside Spain without the permission of the State, of collaborating with a terrorist organization (this is probably the PKK – Kurdish People’s Party being described here), use of military weapons and explosive devices, and of seriously undermining Spanish national interests. Reconstrucción Comunista is an organization composed of members of the Communist Youth who have broken with the Partido Comunista de España, PCE. Its founding members initially were active in this organisation before founding their own organization, close to the MLKP (Marksist-Leninist Komünist Partisi – Turkey) in 2009.

WE WANT THE SPANISH MEMBERS OF THE INTERNATIONAL BRIGADE WHO HAVE FOUGHT ISIS TO BE RELEASED WITHOUT CHARGES!

DEFENDING THE CIVIL POPULATION FROM ISIS TERRORIST ATTACKS CAN’T BE PERSECUTED!

FREEDOM FOR THE ANTIFASCIST COMBATANTS!

INTERNATIONALIST SOLIDARITY IS NOT A CRIME!

Statement by Anarchist Grigoris Tsironis concerning the referendum on July 5th (Greece)

July 6th, 2015

The masks have fallen over the past five years and capital is now showing its true face. The people are dealing with a brutal attack by domestic and foreign capital and its spokesmen. Each collaborationist government willingly enforces austerity programs on the people, signing one memorandum after another in its desperate attempt to remain in power and hold on to its privileges unharmed.

The result of these policies is that we have been led to unemployment, poverty and wretchedness. Tomorrow the people are called to the ballots to give an answer to the blackmailing ultimatums of international financial capital once and for all. They have been called to decide if they will bow their heads and accept one more agreement which will make plutocracy rub its hands [in glee] or will raise their voices, stand tall and say NO to their further subjugation and wretchedness. In order to avoid such a prospect the slugs of the Media of Mass Deception carry out unprecedented propaganda and attempts at terrorizing daily, thus serving the interests of their capitalist bosses.

As an anti-authoritarian I of course do not have any illusions that social emancipation will come through governmental referendums, elections and giving authority to nation-fathers no matter what area they come from, but through mass struggles in the streets and the development of structures of solidarity, self-management and self-organization. Despite all this, I believe that in a country with a great fighting tradition it is our duty to resist and give the domestic and foreign capitalists a small example that the people are now willing to take their lives in their own hands, so that they themselves can decide about their future and not succumb to ultimatums and blackmail that mortgage their hopes and dreams.

The time has come for the people to believe in their strength and promote their dignity.

To say:
NO to subjugation,
NO to blackmail,
NO to the proposition of international usurers and their domestic collaborators,
NO to any left memorandum
And a big YES to solidarity and the struggle of the people.

OUR DREAMS ARE THEIR NIGHTMARES

War against ISIS/Daesh: ‘From Tuzluçayır to Kobane’ – Interview With An Anarchist Warrior (Kurdistan)

July 6th, 2015

The following article is an interview with an environmentalist, vegetarian anarchist from Turkey who is a member of Sosyal Isyan (Social Insurrection) fighting as part of Birleşik Özgürlük Güçleri (United Freedom Forces) alongside the YPG / YPJ in Kobane, Rojava. The interview was conducted by H. Burak Öz and originally appeared on the jiyan.org website. We would like to thank the comrade Ece for translating the interview into English for us.

Environmentalist, vegetarian, anarchist combatants who fight in Kobane.

We are sitting at the headquarters of United Freedom Forces (Birleşik Özgürlük Güçleri) in Kobane. I ask for a cigarette from a fighter aiming to meet and talk with him. While he offers one, I’m asking how many group form the United Freedom Forces. He says that, this force consist of salvationists (Kurtuluşçular), MLSPB, TDP and anarchists and indicates that he is an anarchist too.

What is the aim of fighting here for the anarchists?

I’m one of the founders of Social Insurrection and also their spokesperson. When the attack of ISIS started in Kobane, in the name of international solidarity, not considering it too much, we idealized to raise the defense as International Brigades much like in the Spanish Civil War.

United Freedom Forces was formed by different socialist factions from Turkey. Being an anarchist, how did you become involved with this structure?

United Freedom Forces was founded when we arrived. We made a call to anarchists and ecologists. Read the rest of this entry »

Smash the KKK, Columbia SC (USA)

July 6th, 2015

On Saturday, July 18th, the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan will assemble on the statehouse grounds in Columbia, SC. And we will confront them.

This rally is part of a recent wave of anti-Black terror, from the Charleston massacre to the arson of Black churches, that has strategically sought to build upon a white racist backlash against the #BlackLivesMatter, anti-police uprisings of the past year.

We call upon all those willing and able—#BlackLivesMatter activists, community organizers, anti-racists, anarchists and other radicals, and anyone else furious with racism and the police—to converge on Columbia, confront the Klan, and defy their message of white supremacy. History has shown—from the armed standoff against a lynch mob in Columbia, TN in 1946 to the 1958 Battle of Hayes Pond, from the Deacons for Defense to the armed defiance of Monroe, NC’s NAACP chapter, from the 1979 Greensboro Massacre to the 1997 confrontation with the Klan in downtown Asheville, NC—that we must oppose white supremacist organizing actively and physically, in our streets and neighborhoods.

The KKK is only a small group, whose ability to inflict racist violence actually pales in comparison to that of structures like the police, the economy, and the state. But the sentiment that groups like the KKK hold runs deep through the currents of whiteness in this country, and is a major obstacle to our struggles against these larger structures. Explicit manifestations of white supremacy like the Klan are one way that the state will seek to contain the #BlackLivesMatter organizing and anti-police riots of the last year; at this historic juncture, a large Klan rally in the South cannot go unchallenged.

Bring banners, bring a friend, and bring your anger and rage against the white supremacy that courses through the veins of this society. See you in Columbia.

War against ISIS/Daesh: Tribute to Fallen Combatant Reece Harding of Australia (Kurdistan)

July 2nd, 2015

For the Media and Public Opinion

JAZIRA, Rojava (July 1, 2015) – Through history, with any identity that it might be, humanity has assembled around definitions such as freedom, equality and peace – and it always has risen in defiance of tyranny, oppression and cruelty. Freedom-lovers throughout the entire world have continuously been involved in a struggle to leave a free and peaceful future for their children.

The Kurdish people has played a big role in this revered struggle of peoples, as they continue to conduct their significant part. For thousands of years the pressure and war of deadly powers has not been reduced, yet our relentless people have always stood strong in face of those dark forces and have held high the flag of struggle. In order to grant freedom and democracy, whatever price it has been required, these people have paid confidently. This struggle of Kurdish people can be taken into account as the hardest and longest struggle of human history. Today, a streamer of this respected battle is waved by proud combatants of the People’s Defense Units and the Women’s Defense Units in Rojava Kurdistan, Syria.

This valued fight of our forces today has echoed widely throughout the entire world, and has been of abundant hope and belief for freedom-loving young men and women. For that, willing individuals from all around the world step forward to come to Rojava and be a part of this shared struggle of peoples. This assembly and reaching each other, defines well that humanity still lives with the same principles and purity. How hard determined unrighteous ones try, warriors who march taking those principles as value, are more resolute to let not the enemy forces a single opportunity. Read the rest of this entry »

Text of Revolutionary Struggle member Nikos Maziotis regarding Greece’s default and exit from the EMU – en/fr/it

July 2nd, 2015

FR: Texte de Nikos Maziotis, membre de Lutte Révolutionnaire, au sujet du défaut de paiement de la Grèce et de la sortie de l’Union Monétaire et Economique Européenne. 

The SYRIZA-led government is collapsing. The Greek default and exit from the Eurozone, as choice of the lenders, is a process that started in 2010 and currently marks the beginning of the end of the SYRIZA government. The implementation of the memoranda from 2010 was one phase in the process of orderly default that the supranational economic elite had chosen, in order to ensure the sustainability of the Euro and to cut off one member that due to the debt crisis is considered gangrened and has to be expelled. Essentially, Greece’s default has always been regarded by the supranational economic elite as a prerequisite for its salvation, without even breaking the country’s obligations to the lenders, something that was ensured by the inclusion of the country into the power of the IMF, the ECB and the European Commission.

Since 2009, Greece was already a bankrupt country and this was something known by both the then government of Georgios Papandreou and the European Union. The supranational economic elite, from 2010 onwards, followed an orderly default tactic so as to safeguard the lenders, the then holders of Greek bonds, the French, German, British and American banks.

The first aim of the memorandum was that it prohibited unilateral suspension of debt payments on the part of the debtor. On that basis, all of the Greek state-owned assets were frozen to ensure the repayment of the debt.
