About the Orfanotrofeio squat in Thessaloniki (Greece)

Ownership transition of the squat, from the Ministry of Health to the Mitropolis (Head of The Church)

On the 31st of January, a decision made by the ministry of health was posted on the governmental website ‘diavghia’ (transparency), by which is announced the allocation of the squatted Orfanotrofeio to the Holy Mitropolis of Thessaloniki, on the purpose of creating a foundation for long-term patients.

In a period of crisis, while the bosses attack against even wider social parts, having the maximization of their profits as target, in a period that even more people is led to poverty and misery, that the unemployed and the homeless rise in bigger numbers everyday, the state and church start their ‘charity’ engine. While the church is constantly multiplying its holy profits, through the management of an immense land property, and while many buildings belonging to the church and the state remain empty, some ones judge and decide that the only appropriate for charity building, is the one that happens to be squatted by people of the anti-authoritarian movement, in order to house and manage their needs. After the first attack against the ‘scholeio’ squat, which hosts daily various activities, and the eviction of the ‘epiviosi’ squat, where some people had found a place to cover their basic needs, comes the turn of Orfanotrofeio, in order for the ‘humanitarian’ work of the church and the state to be completed.

We, the people of Orfanotrofeio squat, do not have any intention of surrendering the building to the hands of any authority, state or religious. Since 6 years ago, we have learned to organize our lives collectively, to defend our denials, to struggle and fight. And upon this path we follow, Orfanotrofeio consists a basic coordinate. We will defend this space as we defend and support every space where a world without exploitation and dominance is being built.
