(en) Greece, Libertarians University Patras: COURSE - WEDNESDAY 17 NOVEMBER 6 PM ANNEX 48 YEARS SINCE THE UPRISING OF THE POLYTECHNIC [machine translation]

Date Thu, 18 Nov 2021 07:55:08 +0200


POWER WILL ALWAYS ERECT MONUMENTS TO YESTERDAY'S UPRISINGS AND MACHINES IN THE REVOLUTIONS OF TOMORROW ---- "Our right to take ---- Burloto to the streets and set fire to a state and police officers. ---- We know our land master well. ---- The blood of November has taught us a lot." ---- The Polytechnic uprising in November 1973 was the culmination of a chain of relentless struggles for the fall of the seven-year dictatorship and is a turning point for social and class struggles in Greece. The uprisings and struggles of the past leave a huge legacy and act as a compass for the struggles of today and tomorrow. They are a rich process of confrontation, conflict and battle with the ruling class, they are part of the struggles of the oppressed that aim to free themselves from the shackles of exploitation and injustice and to gain their freedom. At the same time, uprisings are a constant reminder: nothing is given away by any power, everything is won by struggle. The polytechnic uprising in 1973,

November 17 is a pivotal date for both the struggling world and the state. Every year, on the anniversary of the uprising, the state makes every effort to delegitimize and appropriate the uprising. He talks about the "celebration" of the Polytechnic and seeks to convince us that the struggle was an event of "national solidarity", which was attended by forces from across the political scene. But no matter how much the dominant historical narrative tries to conceal the true nature of the uprising, no matter how much it hides its radical and rebellious features, the truth is quite different. The Polytechnic uprising had clear class characteristics and came as a result of the accumulated anger of the students and the social base opposite, not only in the dictatorial regime, but against the dominant exploitative system as a whole. This is the reason why in the days of the uprising the anti-capitalist and anti-state slogans prevailed in the Polytechnic area, this is the reason why the authorities are constantly seeking to erase the events from the collective memory. As for the composition of the people who took part in the events of the uprising, we have no illusions. Our class memory remains alive and unmoved in the face of the melodramatic performance of the powerful, because we will always remember that the domestic bourgeoisie sided with the fascist regime and fought in every possible way the struggling society and the insurgents in order to safeguard its interests. but as a whole against the dominant exploitative system.

This year, the anniversary of the Polytechnic uprising, comes at a time of violent attack by the state and its bosses against the social majority. The far-right government of ND, taking the baton from the previous government, seeks to crush any social conquest and to completely change the post-government example. In an era of generalized and deep crisis of the system, which has accelerated due to the health crisis, the financial and political bosses are trying to preserve their profits in every way. The laws of the last period reflect precisely this effort. The restructuring that takes place in education, the abolition of university asylum, the Kerameos-Chrysochoidis law which includes, among others, the entry of the police in the universities, the expulsion of students, the E.B.E., the controlled entry and the surveillance on the premises of the schools, the laws that prohibit the demonstrations and criminalize the political action, the anti-labor law that abolishes the eight-hour and crushes the unions and the trade union and a series of other provisions, have a common direction and aim on the one hand at terrorizing anyone who dares to fight and at imposing a funeral silence on society and on the other hand at creating a world that will fit fewer and fewer. A world in which the "law and order" of the market will reign, a world in which the lower social strata will not have access to the basic goods of survival at a time when capital and its political representatives are enriching and deepening their dominance their. controlled entry and surveillance on school premises, laws banning demonstrations and criminalizing political action, an anti-labor law that abolishes eight hours and crushes unions and trade unions, and a number of other provisions, have a common direction and aim at terrorizing anyone who dares to fight in the imposition of funeral silence in society and on the other hand in the creation of a world that will fit fewer and fewer.

All of the above happens at a time of unprecedented health crisis. At the time the virus plagues humanity, no measures have been taken to boost public health, such as recruiting medical staff, conducting mass tests and setting up ICUs. At a time when we are in the fourth wave of the pandemic and dozens of our fellow human beings are losing their lives every day, the state is talking about closing hospitals and layoffs. The period of the pandemic has been a golden opportunity for the state to unfold its anti-social planning without facing the social reactions that could have erupted in any other period. The majority of the laws mentioned above passed in "dead" time,

Special mention should be made of the issue of universities. E-learning has been used in universities from the outset of the virus, a measure that excluded many students from the educational process, led to the sterilization of universities from any notion of collective struggle and was used (and is expected to be used even more in the future) as a means of suppressing student games. Education restructuring, the main points of which have already been mentioned, has as its main goal the creation of universities for the few, in which political ferment, trade unionism and the struggle will have no place. It aims to break decades of conquests, which were won through struggles. Conquests which to a large extent became an act due to the revolt of the Polytechnic itself,

Based on all the above, it is obvious that today the proposals of the Polytechnic uprising remain as annoying and topical as ever. The Polytechnic frightens the government. It is no coincidence that a year ago, on the occasion of the state of emergency due to the pandemic, in anticipation of the anniversary of the Polytechnic, a political - and by no means sanitary - lockdown was declared, which included a ban on gatherings, rallies and marches. In those days, anyone who dared to take to the streets was confronted by the repressive forces, who proceeded to beat and arrest militants because they took it for granted and tried to commemorate the anniversary of the uprising.

In this ominous condition that is taking shape for all of us, we must keep the flame of the Polytechnic uprising alive. In the face of the culture of defeatism, frustration and the logic that nothing changes, we students must take matters into our own hands and be inspired by the struggles of the past. Against the sharpening of class barriers, against the criminalization of student-labor struggles and trade union action, against the creation of a university that will fit fewer and fewer, against the dismantling of public health and state death policy, we must recapture and to defend at all costs our needs and class interests. To organize, to promote faith in the collective struggle, solidarity and self-organization. With decision-making bodies the general assemblies, the weapons coordinated - at the base - lasting occupations and mass demonstrations and the vehicle of the ruthless and militant student - class union, to turn the schools into living centers of struggle, places of collective debate, fermentation, fermentation resistance. The anniversary of the Polytechnic is a timeless call to preserve the memory and to continue the struggles given by the dead people of our class and the previous generations. For all these reasons, we call on the youth and the entire struggling society to participate en masse this year in the march on November 17 from the historic site of the Occupy Branch. weapons the coordinated - at the base - lasting occupations and mass demonstrations and vehicle the ruthless and militant student - class union, to turn the schools into living centers of struggle, places of collective discussion, fermentation, questioning and resistance.
