The murder was just the occasion
The murder of 15-year-old Alexandros Gregoropoulos by the cops is the
occasion for our claiming the streets over the past 9 days. However,
murders perpetrated by the state and its mechanisms, whether the are
portrayed as "isolated incidents" of police killings, whether they are
worker "accidents", caused by the inhuman working conditions, or even
murders of immigrants on the border lines of EU, have all a common
resultant; state suppression of any social struggle, suppression
extending even to murdering those that stand out against the state
Moreover, the "independent" authority of Justice is in effect the
bosses’ stooge; keeps penalizing every social struggle and overfills
their prison institutions.
Our demands that the "occupational armies of Democracy" be disbanded
and Police be disarmed, are only a portion of what we are fighting
for: our lives, our dreams, social justice and equal opportunities and
access to public health, education and exploitation-free work.
This text is neither aiming to introduce a political framework in the
struggle of all of us, nor to consume itself in bureaucratic
procedures. Your solidarity reflexes were so immediate that they show
that in the struggle for a more just and fair society, without
exploitation and oppression, we are all together, and we must all
claim the streets, with new social clauses, and fight against all
those who steal our lives.
At this moment, they fear us, and they will keep on fearing us if we
are thousands and everywhere. We are calling everyone to actions of
solidarity, to fight for the rights of all of us.
Let 20 December be the beginning.
General Assembly of the Occupied Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
