(en) Greece, APO, Land & Freedom: Rally against patriarchy and gender-based violence, Saturday 17/7 [machine translation]

COPS, MEDIA, JUDICIAL AUTHORITY - ALL TOGETHER COVER EVERY RAPPER ---- On Saturday, July 10, an 18-year-old girl managed to escape from the hell she was experiencing, captive in the hands of a cop, who kept her confined in his apartment in Ilioupoli, tortured her, raped her and systematically extradited her. The girl, obviously beaten, arrives at a cafeteria in Ilioupoli and finds help in the face of a working waitress who stood by her side. From the moment the police are called, a new torture begins for her. Instead of being transported immediately to a hospital, she ends up in the police station for hours and then is transferred to the internal affairs, in conditions that refer to interrogation and detention, without being allowed to communicate with her lawyer, without any care and treatment of her wounds, without psychological support. When she complains about her torturer, as well as the trafficking ring and the miserable prisoner-rapists, is surrounded by her colleagues, alone. This is not only an inhuman, sadistic attitude towards a girl who has been abused for many years, but also a clear attempt to cover up her tormentors. When he is finally taken to the hospital, the police guard obstructs the work of the doctors, despite their protests, even invading the examination area. The girl is still being treated in the hands of the police as a prisoner, as a prisoner, while for two days she had not been examined by a medical examiner. Several hours will pass and it will take the social pressure exerted by the publication of the events and the gathering of solidarity, to finally arrest the cop as well as her father, who raped her as a child.

Thousands of girls and women are being held hostage in such a regime of daily rape and abuse behind closed apartment doors, in a condition that is a modern form of slavery. Most are unable to escape, as the circuits, as has been revealed in the past, are directly linked to the police, who provide them with protection - when they are not actively involved, exercising the law of terrorism against women. The case of the businessman of the "Choriatiko" chain is typical, who was tried together with 19 other members of the gang of prostitutes - among them a cop - and finally acquitted, since the women who reported their torturers had already been deported from the country and could not file. Many migrant women are being held hostage by such circuits,

What arms the hands of rapists and murderers, and washes away their crimes is a whole system, which has a name and is called patriarchy, state and capitalism. The perpetrators are nurtured, encouraged, armed and in the end covered and justified by the prevailing values and the mechanisms themselves. Indicative is the attitude of the police and the media in the case of the murder of Caroline, who for more than a month created the hagiography of the rich, successful Greek father and husband, reproducing his story of "robbery by foreigners" and sowing racist in society , xenophobic poison.

Patriarchal violence is present as an integral part of state and capitalist barbarism: From the sexual harassment reported by imprisoned immigrant women to the hell of Petros Ralli, the rapes and murders of women recorded on an almost daily basis in confinement, confinement and incarceration. We do not forget that three women were killed last year by the service weapon of their cop - husband. We do not forget the role of the DIAS police officers in the lynching and murder of Zak Costopoulos / Zackie Oh and the role of the judiciary in the release of his killers (when the current SYRIZA opposition offered as a government its full support to the police hell of AT Omonia).

We do not forget the sexist and homophobic attacks, harassment and threats against women, schoolgirls, employees of the occupying police army in Exarchia. We do not forget the 17-year-old in Thessaloniki who was taken into custody for no reason on November 17, 2020, when an orgy of police violence was launched across the country, and she was held for hours wearing only her bra. We do not forget the one arrested after the demonstration of N. Smyrni against the state repression, who was tortured, like many other detainees of that day, and received threats of rape by the MAT men.

Patriarchal violence is systemic violence. It is an organic part of the authoritarian and capitalist world for the division of the oppressed and the onset of social cannibalism. And at the same time it is a systemic tool of terror to keep women in a position of fear and submission, not to speak, not to question, not to revolt. At a time when government propaganda, through the General Secretariat for Gender Equality of the Ministry of Labor, has the audacity to advise that "our tolerance for sexual, psychological, physical or verbal violence must be negligible", these very forms of violence are nothing but the official and proclaimed policy of the security forces towards the fighters, the insurgents, the women who resist. The official policy is to incriminate the victims and cover up the rapists,

We, as activists, as anarchists and as women, organize and collectivize against the state, capitalism and patriarchy. We draw inspiration from the struggles that are raging around the world, from the indigenous Zapatistrians in the mountains of Mexico and the Rojava fighters, the women of Poland and our sisters in Turkey who are fighting against the imposition of state policies on their bodies, to the insurgents in Myanmar, Chile and Colombia standing up to the killers and rapists of the security forces. Hand in hand, side by side, on the street we break the terror that the state and its uniformed agents are trying to impose on us. We meet them with a raised fist and a look of solidarity, which fills us with determination to destroy all forms of human-to-human exploitation and to shout with our sisters around the world that no murder or abuse will go unanswered, that our collective voice can break all ties and break all the walls. To shout that no woman who fights is alone and we will all fight together until we manage to make the flame, fire and systematically burn the rotten authoritarian patriarchal system. Until we make a world where no one will be left behind and none of us, a world that will fit all the worlds inside. that our collective voice can break all bonds and break down all walls. To shout that no woman who fights is alone and we will all fight together until we manage to make the flame, fire and systematically burn the rotten authoritarian patriarchal system. Until we make a world where no one will be left behind and none of us, a world that will fit all the worlds inside. that our collective voice can break all bonds and break down all walls. To shout that no woman who fights is alone and we will all fight together until we manage to make the flame, fire and systematically burn the rotten authoritarian patriarchal system. Until we make a world where no one will be left out and none of us, a world that will fit all the worlds.
