Palestina-Israele, il vetusto progetto colonialista sionista collide con il buco nero

Report del 14.05.13
Il famoso scienziato Stephen Hawking si unisce al boicottaggio accademico contro Israele e sostiene il BDS (Boycott, Disinvest & Sanctions, ndt). L'establishment si è lamentato che il Premio Wolf per la Fisica di $100.000 di cui era stato insignito 25 anni fa non ne ha acquistato il suo sostegno per sempre. Il panico che hanno diffuso e gli sforzi su cui hanno investito per minimizzare il danno portano ad un salto qualitativo del BDS ad un livello superiore. Non è ancora l'inizio della fine, ma è certamente la fine dell'inizio. [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/25505]

Responsibility claim: smashing the facade of the cafe at 111 Pipinou str, Agios Panteleiomonas, Athens

Occupied London - Sun, 05/19/2013 - 19:08

greek original

On May 16, a group of comrades broke the facade of the cafe on Pipinou str in the neighbourhood of Agios Panteleimonas, as a minimum act of attack and solidarity.

An act of attack, against the racist, nauseous statements in a video recorded at that space and that was broadcast in news channels. In addition, the cafe has acted and continued to act as a reference and gathering point for local golden dawn members (such as Vouldis) and other nationalist scum.

An act of solidarity toward the migrants of the wider area, who are often subject to attacks by fascists, supported by uniformed police.

We want to make clear that anyone who hosts, tolerates and cooperates with scum of this kind should be ready to pay the cost of their choice.

Fighting fascism and austerity in Greece

Wild Rose Collective (Iowa City, Iowa) - Sat, 05/18/2013 - 17:10

On Wednesday, April 10, Wild Rose Collective co-hosted an event in Iowa City, Iowa with Pavlos speaking as part of a continental speaking tour about resistance in Greece to both fascism and austerity measures. This event was well attended by about 30 people, and raised over $300 to send to Greek social movement activity.

Pavlos spoke on many important issues and movement work in Greece. This also included a very relevant accounting of the 20th century history of occupation, dictatorship and repression in that country. We heard how these experiences have informed the Greek people’s attitudes toward the police and government, and what resistance looks like and is thought of there. He talked about how the police are remembered as collaborators with occupiers, and on the side of the dictatorship and against the people.

Pavlos clarified that what we refer to as ‘riots’ following the murder of Alexandros Grigoropoulos in late 2008 are instead known in Greece as the December Uprising. This is an important distinction, Pavlos explained, because people weren’t simply running wild in the streets, but acting with a political compass and targeting banks, government offices, etc. That the uprising has come to be known as riots in the Western media, removing the political content of the actions. The December Uprising also impacted later movements in Greece that emerged in response to severe austerity measures.

We learned about the neo-fascist group Golden Dawn, its recent rise to political power (it is now the third most represented party in the Greek government), and the threat it poses. Pavlos spoke of how, within the last 10 years, Greece has seen a massive change in population demographics, with anti-immigrant sentiment appealing to some. In addition to this, the economic desperation of most Greeks has led to an equally desperate search for a cause and a solution, resulting in an increase in anti-immigrant sentiment.  While Greece has a majority politically left-leaning culture, there has been a smaller, but consistent current of fascism and the far right during the last century. And for just as long there has been a popular resistance to it.

Pavlos also spoke to the situation of a failing state and capital and its consequences. For example, suicide rates have skyrocketed. Pavlos anecdotally shared that nearly every person seems to know someone who has killed themselves, making it a common and unsurprising topic of conversation in Greece. The increase in cost of home heating has meant that many homes are using firewood, causing an intense smog and widespread fires in Athens and other places. The average worker has seen 30% or more cuts in wages, if they are paid at all.

With this as the backdrop, popular assemblies have emerged in many locations. Starting in May 2011 in Athens, these began as mass occupations of City Halls somewhat like the U.S.’s Occupy in city parks. The occupations spread throughout Greece, and some have continued. They are often made up of working class Greeks and reflect their concerns and needs, in places running some local services by directly democratic process in the assemblies. We heard how these assemblies serve as an inspiring example of resistance to crisis and austerity. The biggest inspiration and lesson from the assemblies, for Pavlos and for us, is not to just get through the crisis, but to remake our relationships to each other and how we manage our lives day-in and day-out. This, Pavlos told us, is the most radical aspect of what is happening in Greece.

Teachers vote for action but leaders opt for talks

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Fri, 05/17/2013 - 17:59

Members of the Irish National Teachers Organisation (INTO) have voted by a massive 91% in favour of industrial action up to and including strike action if the government moves to cut their pay via legislation.  This huge vote is a clear statement by the union’s members that No means No, that their rejection of the so-called ‘Croke Park extension’ deal must be respected by both government and the union’s leadership and that they are ready and willing to take action to prevent the imposition of paycuts.
