Athens, Greece: About the conflicts of the 17th November at the Polytechnic

15128901_1195072373910607_2389407716398924327_o

We take responsibility for the participation in the conflicts of November 17th, 2016 in Athens at the Polytechnic. We are delighted for their scope, and for the 6 cops in the hospital. We are pleased that we were actively part of an anarchist insurrectionary act which showed a sufficient force for the measures and the possibilities it offers.
We were not part of the conflict in order to “celebrate the anniversary” of November 17. We were not part of the conflict to do social constituencies. We were not part of the conflict to “revive the glory” of the Polytechnic uprising. We were not part of the conflict in the hope of provoking some serious property damage. And neither were we part of the conflict to show that the so-called anarchist space has a compact dynamic and combative presence, creating the illusion of a mass “that breaks” and “sows chaos” in pre-arranged meetings with considerable operational force .

AGAINST IDLENESS
We were part of the conflict to create moments of attack and familiarity with the immediate anarchic violence, to test our reflexes to coexist with individualities we value theoretically and practically, and finally get away from experiential inaction and inertia. We were part of an insurrectionary moment, with some elementary (in terms of material costs towards the authoritative carriers) effectiveness.

AGAINST DEMOCRACY AND ITS FIESTAS
We were part of the conflict as a sacrilegious farce toward pilgrimages, the anniversary walks, the coffeehouse revival of past “Good times”, the democratic, conciliatory spirit of “struggling people” , the sanctification and symbolization of struggles -with the aim to justify obedience to our penchant for quietness and security- elevating them into something unattainable that only in the future will happen again, and of course by others. We stood across from the cops of democracy by fighting democracy itself and any authoritarian regime, and diffusing the proposal of direct action in the present.

AGAINST THE DEVALUATION OF FORMS OF WAR
We were part of the conflict, disassociated from the plebs that embraces the logic that “the mess is useless, standard, graphic and harmful to the movement.”
Firstly, indifferent is the movement and its fictitious unity to us, as we recognize the theoretical and practical gaps, and not seek consistency. Each one their own way.
Secondly, clearly the conflicts at the Polytechnic don’t constitute something original. But all that is a familiar field with the direct physical conflict with the army of the present authority, and a situation even in the least aggressive, we certainly rejoice, as we would be pleased to see banners, painting, symbolic actions, and generally any anarchist act of diffusion of our perceptions.
And thirdly, for many people the clash with cops, even with relatively safer conditions, is an acquaintance scope with others, operational coexistence and possibility of passing to direct action, something which we fully choose. Clearly we have no illusion of comradeship and common theoretical base with the people participating, being scrappy and its anthropography includes in many cases figures that are our enemies, for instance a bunch of males who honor their trousers (1), self-appointed “experts” of violence, etc. So we communicate our point of view expressing our individualities alone.

AGAINST THE COOPERATION OF THE POLYTECHNIC PROFESSORS WITH THE NAVY
We were part of the conflict to remind the professors of NTUA Dimitris Manolakos and Emmanuel Koukios that there are people who do not forget the cooperation signed on August 24, 2016 with the navy. We do not forget the promotion of research and development of surveillance and enforcement practices (thermal cameras at the border fence in Evros, immigrants underwater detection systems, drones, etc.), from NTUA and the army enthusiasts professors. We do not forget the use of the NTUA to safeguard the doctrine of “law and order” in Greece. Narks keep you eyes open.

LET’S SURGE EVERYWHERE, LET’S BECOME UPGRADED
We choose the direct action for the physical destruction against carriers of all kinds of authority. We seek to disseminate anarchist war, and for this we aim at decentralization, specifically at its “dis-exarcheia-ization”(2). To become unpredictable, to exploit the absence or reduced presence of cops on every corner of the city to attack, to cause material blow to the enemy. The rigged appointments and foreseeable actions are ok, but we prefer to move unnoticed, to upgrade our means constantly, to study the state and its mechanisms and to strike at more sensitive spots, without underestimating the value of head-on collision.
As for the cops, the “indignant” citizens, the journalistic trash that were taking photos and videos to sell to the regime media of domestication, the neighbors that their sleep was disturbed, the narks and every motherfucker that has touched a companion of ours or whatever individuality was present on the battlefield, let them be sure they do not slow the day they will receive the violence they deserve. They and their properties, their fuckin’ stores and state dungeons, in which time swings as gallows, definitely are not safe.
We have nothing to do with the world of authority, our logics are absolutely parallel, and no reconcilement can be made. Let’s organize our war. To smash the state “monopoly of violence”. To fill the gaps in the state apparatus with gasoline, bullets and gunpowder.
We welcome the comrades who kept squatted the Gini building in Athens, we welcome the brothers/sisters with whom we shared those moments, and with whom we will share even more intense. We welcome any insurrected person and every act of diffusion of our anarchist perception.

Strength to the 5 arrestees of November 15th and to the 13 of November 17th in Athens, and to all the comrades who were arrested in Greece.

FORWARD FOR FIELDS OF CONFLICT AND MOMENTS OF WAR THAT WILL NUMB ANY KIND OF RULERS WITH THE POISON OF THE HERE AND NOW ANARCHIST INSURRECTION

Some insurrected minorities

(1) The comrades mean some numbskulls, part of the plebs who show unrestrained ”masculinity” as part of an ethos of the dominant social ideology in the specific geographic areas.

(2) Exarcheia is the geographic area of ”anti-authoritarianism”.

Athens: Responsibility claim for participation in street clashes on October 19th

2-1

During the night of Wednesday October 19th we took part, alongside many other groups and individualities, in the street clashes around the Polytechnic in Exarchia, that lasted for several hours with constant attacks with molotovs, stones and fireworks against antiriot police squads.

Street clashes, in any of their forms (exiting university premises through incendiary means, rioting in demonstrations, etc.), are part of the multiform anarchic attack against Power and the imposed normality. Because of their characteristics, this is one of the most effective ways to demonstrate the conflict between anarchy and the world of Power. This is why we support the diffusion of this and other forms of struggle that aim to destabilize and spread chaos until the collapse of the existent.

But we don’t want to limit ourselves in a routine of anticop hate; along with the attacks against the cops, we promote the practice of attack against the structures and symbols of domination, from the most obvious like banks and ministries, to those urban elements that serve the normal function of the metropolis: road signs, traffic lights, cameras, bus stops… as well the representations, symbols and idols of Power in the form of icons, monuments, statues…

At the same time, barricades and attacks on public transportation (buses, trolleybuses, metro… without passengers inside) are forms of interruption of the normal flow of people and commodities, and sabotage against the state and private companies that manage this flow.

All those symbols and structures represent or serve a function of the authoritarian civilization we want to destroy, so they’ll always be a target for us.

We don’t see anarchic violence as a sacrifice or as a revolutionary obligation; instead, we demystify it, we turn it into a banality, we use it in a ludic way, making it obtainable for everybody, without professionalisms or restrictions.

No act of rebellion is useless!

Riots everywhere!

Strength to the prisoners and the persecuted!
