Because of the day of the black anniversary of the murder of Alexis Grigoropoulos from the cop Korkoneas, some comrades chose to give a different meaning to this night by placing our own pebble in the frames of conflict. As a minimal token of protest against everything we experience and the consumerist craze of Christmas, with the help of flammable material and our will to leave the discussions and nonsense of the cafes, we proceeded to act. Just before the beginning of the demonstration we set fire to the Christmas tree in the central market square of Chania and which represents the consumerist frenzy that takes over the brains of the living-dead of this country and not only. As soon as it started burning, a group of store owners whose stores were not endangered, rushed to put out the fire with buckets and hoses, their petite-bourgeois not able to understand the nature of this act, resulting in only one part of the tree being burnt.
Every Christmas the slave-like citizens count, in their empty pockets, the crumbs thrown to them by the bourgeois so they can live, and like a large herd of sheep they storm the multinationals shopping for soul-less materials, not out of need but out of habit. We as anarchists state that we will not be present at the city’s Christmas fiestas not only because
we find these Christmas “offerings” one more profit game of the above but because human dignity is above all other means of transaction. The city’s mayor Tasos Vamvoukas and his posse with one more year in the seat, thinks that the city should be festively dressed, irrelevantly of the people sleeping on the benched in rough conditions and even die from the cold and illnesses.
We are against any kind of state or non-state mechanism that aims at
dominating our lives.
FIRE TO SHOPPING
WE WANT LIFE!
DECEMBER IS A MONTH OF INSURRECTION AND STRUGGLE!
LONG LIVE ANARCHY!
