(en) greece, Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki: On 22/10, a stolen car with three Roma teenagers on board was chased. [machine translation]

After their "terrible" crime not to stop at the signal of the cops and after being trapped, they receive a storm of fire with 38 bullets from the men of the DI.AS team. 18-year-old Nikos Sampanis falls dead while a 16-year-old is injured and the third man manages to escape. The cops consider as a logical reason to gass the car the reverse movement towards their machines that were behind it. Since the murder of an 18-year-old child cannot be justified in terms of proportional violence, the well-known tactic of the police, that of distorting reality, is implemented. The next morning the systemic media will talk about "conflict", for injuring police officers after embolizing their machines with murderous intent and for a marked perpetrator. This narrative - which as always comes from the police and is simply parroted without any investigation - will be debunked by the fact that no weapons were found in the car, by a video which records the police transporting to the center that they have not suffered the slightest and end from the white criminal record of Nikos Sampanis. It will be followed by a culvert and repeated lies by the TV unionists of the cops, with the first and foremost that of the non-prior knowledge of the groups that chased the car for the cultural identity of the passengers. They will be refuted once again by the recorded conversation with the center to which they clearly convey that there are three Roma passengers in the car. Then the Minister of Civil Protection visits the 7 murderers in GADA for support to prove to even the most skeptics that the leadership of the Hellenic Police does not consider that the seven made a mistake. It is a mistake for the police that they were caught so openly in an attempt to cover up another state assassination with clear racist motives. Nikos Sampanis was not killed by police officers who showed excessive zeal, he was killed as a marginal by the uniformed murderers of the state.

On 25/10, Dimitris Daglis lost his life as he was trapped on the crane bridge rails at the Cosco checkpoint in Piraeus. What the bosses call an "accident" happened as a result of devastating 12-hour shifts and lack of protection measures. The attempt to disclaim the responsibilities as the first reflection of the employer was immediately apparent, as the company initially claimed and channeled to the media that at the time of the accident the employee was out of time and for an unknown reason was near the crane bridge. For Cosco, and for every Cosco, workers are numbers in books. In other words, they are expenses that must be reduced in order to maximize profits, and to this end our local authorities are happy to assist with their bills, constantly increasing working hours and impoverishing our working conditions.

The tragic report of the dead workers in just one month is completed by 18-year-old Anees Meer, a refugee distributor from Pakistan who was killed on 10/10 after a collision with a taxi that broke a stop on the streets of Athens and Dimitris Asimakis, also a distributor, who was abducted by a passing car on 30/10 this time in the streets of Thessaloniki. The driver of the car seduced the distributor after violating three previous red lights and moving at high speed.

As if all this were not enough, on October 26, a boat full of refugees sank off Chios, resulting in the death of three children and a woman. The geopolitical games and wars of small and large imperialists have for years now forced refugees to cross the Aegean and the Evros in search of security in Europe. The Greek state responds with illegal deportations, fences and concentration camps.

This escalation of "unfortunate incidents" tends to become a regularity and a macabre habit. It is a product of social cannibalism and the attack of the state and capital on the people of our class. It is a result of the capitalist system that kills whoever is "in excess".

We, for our part, refuse to accept as normal that every boss's profits come out of our own blood. That at the same time that our bosses are making super profits, the workers must stretch more and more and risk their lives every day for a day job-tip (a condition that intensified after the anti-labor bill Hatzidakis, which legalized with the parliament of the state, what until now the bosses were trying to impose on us illegally).

We refuse to accept as normal the cowboy cops who think they can decide - and enforce - that the misdemeanor of car theft or the misdemeanor of not stopping in control can lead to the death penalty. We refuse to accept it as normal to beat people because they are parked in quarantined parks, to beat strikers and protesters, to sexually harass them on the street or in sections, to torture and kill in the cold.

We refuse to accept as normal the drowned migrants and refugees at sea, the (illegal) deportations from the port in the Aegean or the army in Evros but also from the various parastatal mechanisms that have been operating undisturbed for years, the (illegal) deportations even from the urban centers by the uniformed fascists of the Hellenic Liberation Army, but also the lack of housing, the lack of access to medical care, the escalating exclusion from the inalienable right of asylum, etc.

We refuse to accept as normal the peaceful cannibals next door, who rejoice because a "gypsy" was killed or because "illegal immigrants" drowned.

To every power, we respond now and always with class solidarity. The poor and marginalized, the undervalued and precarious, the persecuted because of wars and the persecution of every power and every state, in short, those at the base of the social pyramid with the result that the state and capital consider them / their consumables and unnecessary, for us they are at the heart of our solidarity.

It is our duty to defend the dignity and free movement of all immigrants and refugees, erasing the border lines drawn by the authorities for their nationals. It is our duty to defend our class interests against those of the bosses who want to sacrifice us - metaphorically and literally - on the altar of their profit. It is our duty to counteract the repressive mechanisms of the state which are the most tangible and visible version of the violence that capital exercises daily in its attempt to devalue and control / discipline our lives, in order to "accept" its demands as regularity. From the protests of the Roma community with the closure of highways to the dynamic and massive - and, ultimately, victorious - strike of the dock workers of COSCO,

The sooner the people choose direct conflict with all sorts of tyrants, the sooner they propose the unity of order over "national unity," the sooner they will pave the way for their total emancipation.

Always on the side of the weak, the oppressed, the uprooted of this world, regardless of color and religion, locals and "foreigners", we join hands, raise our fists.

WE DO NOT FORGET THE DEAD OF OUR CLASS
TO SACRIFICE ANYONE ELSE ON THE ALTAR OF THE PROFITING
STATE AND CAPITAL THE ONLY TERRORISTS

STATE AND CAPITAL KILLER

STRUGGLE AGAINST THEM IS A STRUGGLE FOR LIFE
