(en) Greece, Libertarian group of the University of Patras: THE COPS OUT OF THE UNIVERSITIES. HANDS DOWN FROM STUDENTS AND THOSE WHO ARE FIGHTING [machine translation]

Date Wed, 18 Nov 2020 10:34:28 +0200


A meeting was held on Monday, November 2, attended by the country's university rectors, the prime minister and members of the government. Central to this discussion was the proposal to upgrade repression and control in university institutions through the establishment of a university police force, the mandatory display of student identity and face control to enter the university, the installation of cameras to monitor the movements. of students but also the tightening of penalties for the "misdemeanors" that will arise. The atmosphere of the discussion is reflected in the statements of the rector of the University of Patras, Christos Bouras, who immediately after the meeting stated, among other things: "I can only support,

The specific proposal of the government does not come, of course, to surprise us as it is another link in the chain of repressive attack that the state has launched against students and society. Already last summer, the government, taking the thread from where the previous state administration of SYRIZA had left it, proceeded to the abolition of the university asylum and triumphantly stated that it paved the way for the "fight against lawlessness and delinquency" and within of the university premises, while he then ordered the invasion of the cops in ASOEE in order to hit the students who were fighting. The diffusion of the "theory of the two extremes" plays an important ideological weapon in this effort to legalize students and activists. which identifies the world of struggle and those who fight for a world of freedom and equality with the fascists who, acting as the long arm of the state and the bosses, hate every notion of freedom and equality. However, the repressive enterprise of the state through the doctrine of "Law and Order" is not limited to students but spreads throughout the social body. In the last year alone, the government's actions include the abolition of asylum, the passage of the anti-education bill on all levels of education, the banning of demonstrations and strikes, the evacuation of squatters and the beating of protesters by students and pupils. teachers, doctors and every employee. acting as the long arm of the state and the bosses, they hate every notion of freedom and equality.

We can not fail to refer to the situation in which the proposal for the university police comes to the fore. Since the beginning of this year, we are facing an unprecedented health crisis that has caused the death of millions of people around the world. Throughout this period of the pandemic, instead of the state aiming at dealing with it and protecting society (strengthening the NSS, recruiting medical staff, mass tests) it used the health crisis in order to further consolidate its sovereignty and attack the lower classes. with a number of anti-social bills (education, environment, labor, demonstrations) and practices (such as the evacuation of squatters and the intensity of the confinement of refugees and migrants).

The establishment of the university police and the other proposals discussed at the rectors' meeting, the abolition of asylum, the anti-education bill and the introduction of e-education all express the ultimate goal of the rulers which is none other than disarmament, student movement, so that they can launch their attacks on our acquis and interests with the best possible terms and correlations. They seek to form a university sterile from every trace of political fermentation, friction and discussion among students about their problems. A university where class student unionism and any attempt to organize collective resistance as well as any attempt to challenge state and capital plans will be fully supervised and criminalized. The clear purpose of the police presence in the universities is to break student squatters (or any other form of struggle), imposing a condition where "law and order reigns". Law and order of the market, capitalist profitability, all kinds of arbitrariness (teachers and non-teachers), discipline, intensification and control. They want a university fully in line with the requirements of the state and capital, a university of greater class barriers, where attendance is the prerogative of the few, the elite and the affluent,

We, against the plans of the rulers and the dystopian future that they are preparing both for us and for the wider sections of the exploiting class, have to oppose the power that comes from collectivization and struggle. A key guarantee for the restart of the movement and the overall confrontation with what is to come is the horizontal organization of the struggles on the basis of our common material interests, needs and desires. It is the militant defense and guarding of our acquis that we see numbly taking us one by one. It is the appropriation and transformation of university spaces into living centers of struggle, into places of collective discussion, fermentation, challenge and resistance. With decision-making bodies the general assemblies, weapons the coordinated - at the base - lasting squatting and mass demonstrations and vehicle the autonomous and militant student - class union, we defend at all costs the asylum and the rest of our class interests. Against the culture of defeatism, individualization and assignment to promote faith in collective struggle, solidarity and self-organization.
