Greece: The news program of STAR channel tried to identify anarchist refugee Abtin Parsa as a terrorist
Thursday, March 26th, 2020
On 14/3/2020, the news program of STAR channel, which is a part of the general Greek media mafia, controlled by known cocaine smuggler “Marinakis”, did show a propaganda video clip in reference to my public statement.
The news program of STAR channel, obviously tried to identify me publicly in the TV, as an terrorist. In the beginning of the video clip, two pictures of me(with cover faces) have been showed, which one of the pictures has anarchy symbol in the background. During the video clip, there is a clear manipulation on my words in the statement and in the same time, focus on my identity as an immigrant. Finally in the end, a journalist show up only to mention that I have been under research about terrorism.
The news program of STAR channel, connected three items in the video clip: Anarchism, Immigrants and Terrorism, which these items are exactly what Greek oligarchy regime used them as propaganda to act about social security.
Why social security is a important point for the state?
Because social security is the basic tool for the state to control the society. For us who have been lived in the middle east, it is very clear: If you need to control the society, you need to create a enemy, so you create a need for the society to have your protection from the enemy. Clearly what Greek media mafia have showed until now as enemy are: Anarchists and Immigrants. (more…)

We are in a war situation, some of us were killed, some of us are in prisons, some of us were pushed to escape and are being hidden and many of us are under a lot of pressure. We should accept that resistance against state and capitalism is not the easy way of life but we have no choice: either we resist together and survive, or the state and capitalism will kill all of us one by one.
After months being under watch, follow and harassment by anti terrorist unit, on February 13, when the oppression did target me and those who have contact with me more than in the past, I did take a political decision to be hidden. I am not in a safe place and no one is in a safe place because in this neo liberal capitalism system, there is no safe place, so being hidden inside 4 walls does not mean you are safe.
In this period of time, there is a historical and political responsibility for the movement to defend the armed resistance. The goal of state repression is first to pacifize and in the end to destroy any kind of resistance, because the state does not want the oppressed to fight back. The state talks about peace but this peace is nothing but monopolizing the violence in the hand of state. The state is trying to make us unable to return the violence, but the oppressed should defend themselves by any means that they understand; otherwise there is no survival.

(November 23rd, 2019)
Days after being followed and days after my home in Ano Patissia was being watched by the anti-terrorist unit, I published a political statement that also includes a report about the events on 27/10/2019 .
Later, 09/11/2019, the anti-terrorist cops that were near my house started acting differently. At the same time, anti-terrorist unit repression against the movement became more severe, like arresting comrades with the accusation of being involved in the revolutionary organization “Organization of Revolutionary Self-Defense”.
10/11/2019, 22:00 to 22:30, while I was going home, I saw many undercover cops around my home, more than usual in the past few weeks. I decided to not go home and publish immediately the information in Indymedia Athens about this event .
11/11/2019, in the evening, while my flatmate and his friend were coming out of the building, 15 to 20 anti-terrorist cops stopped them. First, anti-terrorist cops handcuffed them, put them in the car and probably 30 minutes later the anti-terrorist cops entered my home with the key that they took from my flatmate. Anti-terrorist cops started searching the house. After that, they arrested my flatmate with the accusation of having a military knife that was found in our home. (more…)
