(en) Greece, Libertarian Initiative Thessaloniki AF: Intervention at the home of the director of the Experimental School of the University of Thessaloniki, Eleni Rossiou. [machine translation]

Date Tue, 6 Oct 2020 07:29:42 +0300


Solidarity in the struggle of students! ---- Today, Friday 2/10/2020, we made a symbolic intervention with posters and T-shirts at the house of the director of the Experimental School of the University of Thessaloniki, Eleni Rossiou, in the area of Analipsi, as well as at the entrance of the Experimental School located at the junction of Alexandrou and Deliazou streets. Wisdom. ---- In this way we want to declare that the attempted intimidating and repressive actions aimed at stopping the student mobilizations will fall into the void. For our part, we express our full solidarity with the students who are fighting for public and decent education and health. ---- HANDS DOWN WITH STUDENTS, STUDENTS AND STUDENT COMPETITIONS
From the beginning of this school year, the irresponsibility of the New Democracy government became obvious in the eyes of all of us and especially in the eyes of the students. The government imposed a general lockdown in the spring in order to save time and supposedly shield the public health system. Instead, she chose to give millions upon millions to her acquaintances and friends, major contractors, owners of clinics and diagnostic centers, owners of KEK (who could forget "Skoil Elikikou") and, of course, the canal managers. 31 million euros was the gift only to the channels, to curse the "vagrant" students all day and to explain to us how elegant Mareva is. Finally the government gave the unconditional green light for the start of the tourist season, under strong pressure from the big business treasurers in the respective sector, resulting in an overwhelming rise in the number of recorded Covid-19 cases. In addition, on the occasion of the Covid-19 pandemic, as long as people were clamoring their homes, the government took the opportunity to level workers' labor rights and strengthen the bosses in every way (funding and tax exemptions). All this time the workers in the health sector are fighting a difficult battle with determination and responsibility, but without almost any support from the state. There are still huge shortages of medical staff, ICU beds and coronavirus tests. resulting in an overwhelming rise in recorded Covid-19 cases.

And then came the big fiasco with the "opening" of schools. Initially, the government considered it reasonable to stack 25 students per classroom, while in an irrational way it considers that 10 people in a square are a public danger and is chasing the youth who linger in the squares. Even today, he insists that the reality lived by thousands of students is not what they themselves see with their own eyes, but the distorted reality that Kerameos presents on the channels, which continue to claim that only the 3 % of classes have more than 25 students. Then, after publicly pressuring for free masks for students, the government probably chose to "troll" them. as he handed them masks capable of being used as balloons and "water bottles" which in size do not fit even a glass of water. Of course, for real measures that would really offer any protection to students and teachers no reason! No need for additional and permanent teaching staff, as well as cleaning staff. No need for smaller sections.

You do not need to be a political analyst to realize how big the food was around the specific "orders". And while there is no money for education, there is no money for health; there is probably more for more frigates, bombs, weapons and planes, since on the same days the government announced, among other things, the squandering of public funds for the market. military service, imposed conscription at 18 and 12 months of military service, announced 15,000 permanent military recruitments and doubled the state budget for military spending (already 2.4% of GDP is spent annually on NATO purposes).

The situation has now reached the point of no return, especially for all of us who somewhere between the unprecedented poverty that is coming and the repression and totalitarianism that are christened "health policy" now feel that we can not breathe. The anti-labor and anti-social policies of the government are consistent exclusively with the service of capitalist interests, clearly endangering public health.

After the dynamic mobilizations of the workers in the health sector that continue despite the attitude of the government which u?? is probably too busy applauding them, to listen to them (!), The students raised their stature towards the government and they occupied their schools. More than 700 schools are already under occupation nationwide. Pupils join on the street with teachers, students, employees. They require the operation of departments with a limit of 15 students per class, mass recruitment of permanent teaching staff, cleaners and support staff (nurses, psychologists), reduction of teaching time and increase of break time,

The massive student mobilization has shaken the government. That is why the government is attacking the squatters so furiously, in order to marginalize them socially and to suspend the struggles of the students. Let's take a look at the communication tricks the government has used to cover up its utter failure to curb the Covid-19 pandemic:

a) The narrative of the infamous "individual responsibility". The state has no responsibility. No responsibilities that have not hired health workers. No responsibility for not making new ICU beds. No responsibility that we do not have a test. No responsibility that he did anything to shrink the classrooms and actually open the schools. The responsibility is YOURS and is individual: Take the bus, with which you travel pickled with another 100, go to work, where almost no protection measures are observed, go to school with 25 other children in a class of a few square meters and 2 guys per desk, go out for a beer, where everything works normally... but if you catch a coronavirus, you are responsible for that walk you did in the park or that beer you drank in the square with three of your friends!

b) Occupying students are "sprayed" and "conspiracy theorists". The government and the well-paid parrots are doing everything they can to paint the real demands of the students and to show to the public that the students are squatting because... they do not want to wear a mask! And with a little bit of sewing in student interviews and a lot of burying the texts and banners that actually mention the students' demands, they believe that they will cover the fact that, as a student aptly put it, the only one who incites the squatting is the government .

c) to categorically accuse students of laziness, as if the unbearable boredom of the educational process is not entirely justified for all those who are or have been students. As alumni, all we can say is that getting bored of taking a lesson in an education system that does what it can to be unbearably boring is a sign of health! With the millions it has recently given as a gift to the regime media and channels, the government has succeeded in slandering those who resist the barbarity that it imposes on us every day and distorts the context of their struggles.

d) And of course... with terrorism! State repression, through the courts, attempts to stop the movement of students by spreading fear. With "prosecutorial investigations", terrorist letters to parents and cops in the squatting, they try to scare the students and force them to crowd almost 30 people in each class... for their own good! At the same time, Ms. Kerameos probably considers public education to be her own personal private KEK and utters whatever nonsense comes to her mind, trying to terrorize the students that if they dare to continue the squatting, they will take classes on the weekends and holidays, will not have school trips... even that will exclude them from distance education (!), which, of course, has absolutely no possibility of doing so under national and European law. If they think their threats will take place, they are laughing.

On the contrary, thousands of teachers stand by the students! The Federation of Secondary Education Officials, in fact, issued a statement in which it made it clear that teachers are not going to obey the demands of the government and become instruments of repression of struggling students, but will be allies in their struggle. While reactionary herds of "outraged" (= far-right) "parents" trying to "break" the squatters are shown all day on the channels, the full support of thousands of parents 'and guardians' associations is deliberately buried.

The Experimental School of the University of Thessaloniki is under occupation from 28/9/2020, after the approval of 2/3 of the students attending the specific school. The principal of the school, Eleni Rossiou, terrorizes the students involved in the occupation, stating in writing that she will inform the juvenile prosecutor of Thessaloniki, Dimitra Tsiardakli, to launch their criminal prosecution. We take this move as evidence of authoritarianism, intimidation and repression of the fair fight of students.

The demands of the student squatters are fair.
The demands of the student squatters are also our demands.
Public and dignified access to health and education are issues that concern us all.

For our part, we declare that we will stand by the struggle of the students and we call publicly for its massification and support. We will not let principals, far-right "parents", prosecutors and conservative teachers terrorize students. We will unite our voices and gait together with the struggling student movement. They do not scare us, we are not afraid of them!

VICTORY IN RACE student squatters

ONLY SOLIDARITY AND SUPPORT student mobilization can intercept STATE REPRESSION

MONEY FOR PUBLIC AND FREE HEALTH AND EDUCATION, TO COVER THE BASIC SOCIAL NEEDS - NOT FOR EXOPLISTIKOUS ANTAGONISMOUS AND INTEREST OF BOSSES
