Against lockdowns and bans, the memory of the Polytechnic uprising and our struggles stay alive ---- The relentless struggles that took place in total for the fall of the seven-year dictatorship of the colonels, culminating in the mass uprising of the Polytechnic, are a great legacy today. The uprisings and struggles of the past are not just a series of accomplished events but a rich process of confrontation, conflict and battle with the ruling class. They are part of the rich history of social and class struggles that have been given, and act as a compass, for both the struggles of today and tomorrow. At the same time, the uprisings are a constant reminder: nothing was given away by any power, everything was won by the struggles. The uprising of the Polytechnic University, in 1973, was characterized by the vigor and self-sacrifice of thousands of fighters, who, despite the harsh repression, imprisonment, torture,

Today, the far-right government of ND, stepping on the path paved by the previous government, launches a ruthless attack, resulting in the impoverishment of the social majority. With multi-bill "rollers" he comes to sweep every social field, dissolving all social and class acquis, trying to suppress collective struggles. All the previous time and in conditions of emergency, he passed a series of anti-educational bills, thus making the conditions of education difficult for all levels. While at the same time it prepares working middle working conditions for all the people in our class (abolition of the 8 o'clock, electronic voting, file of trade unionists, prevention of the declaration of strikes). Finally, it upgrades the legal arsenal with the passage of the bill banning demonstrations,

All of the above is happening at a time of pandemic outbreak, where the crisis of the bankrupt capitalist system is evident. 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. On the contrary, the state is taking measures that are not related to dealing with the pandemic but to disciplining them from below and denervating the games. It is obvious that the state administration is completely indifferent to human life and prioritizes the market economy and the interests of capital, as it chooses to give millions to the media canals for their ideological manipulation from below and money to the police for repression. of our struggles.

In universities, e-learning was used from the first moment of the virus, a measure that on the one hand excluded many students from the educational process due to lack of material equipment and on the other hand led to the sterilization of universities and their detachment from any concept of collective struggle. Assemblies, squats, etc.). At the same time, e-education was a measure to suppress the student squatting, which broke out in the previous period, with basic demands for protection measures, the recruitment of teachers and cleaning staff. This proves that e-learning is in fact a measure to suppress future occupations and strikes, as the educational process can continue smoothly through it.

Continuation of the same policy are the proposals submitted last week at the "meeting" through a teleconference between the rector, the prime minister, the minister of education and the minister of civil protection. The conference discussed the upgrading of repression and control within universities. Specifically, it was proposed the creation of a special police force for universities, the implementation of a mandatory face control / student identity regime at university entrances, the installation of cameras and security systems and the tightening of the penal code for disciplinary offenses within disciplinary offenses.

The rulers in the context of the complete implementation of the doctrine of Law and Order, do not hesitate to take out of the drawer, at this time, their plans for the complete abolition of asylum and the full subordination of universities to the appetites of the market. A wish of decades, which in times of pandemic, generalized lockdown and bans, comes in combination with the communication game of the reproduction of the theory of the two extremes, to become a reality. The rulers, adhering to the neoliberal doctrine of the theory of the two extremes, seek to cultivate a climate of social consensus to pave the way more quickly for the criminalization of any organized and collective expression of class disobedience and struggle against the existing exploitative system. We against any misleading bourgeois narrative,

The state management of the pandemic, by incorporating the characteristics of an emergency regime, with traffic bans, generalized lockdowns, exorbitant fines and suppression of rallies, aims to establish a climate of funeral silence and capitalist regularity. The obedience of the movement and the affected social majority to the announcements of Chrysochoidis, for a ban on the anniversary demonstrations of the Polytechnic, will be a move of public retreat for the world of the struggle. The movement, taking into account the peculiarities of this treaty, should break in practice any attempt to ban demonstrations and criminalize the wider resistance, while ensuring all the necessary measures of collective and individual self-defense against the coronavirus pandemic.

Against an attempt to universally denigrate the struggles inside and outside schools, against the prohibition and criminalization of student, labor and social mobilizations, the total abolition of asylum, the policing and surveillance of universities, the intensification of repression, the further and the removal of our acquired rights and freedoms, the acceptance of distance education - teleconference - telework in our lives, we are called to contribute to the continuation of the struggle. 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 the student and not,
