Political Action against the racist anti-refugee policy of the European Union

Today the 5th of September a group of activists made an intervention in the Acropolis and later in Ermou Street (main shopping street in Athens) to demand the end of the murder in the Mediterranean sea and all other borders.

The action was organized by the squatted refugee accommodation and solidarity space City Plaza and was happening in the frame of an broader, transnational campaign “Welcome united”. Due to the policy of the European Union and their partners, the official number of death in the Mediterranean sea only in this year is around 2365 innocents, and the black number is way higher. We demand all the ones who are in charge to immediately stop this policy, which kills people and is discriminating those who make their way here spite the humiliating conditions. Instead of that we demand to open the borders and create safe passage for people. Read the rest of this entry »

Patras, May 28-30: Second Anarchist Book Fair In this post we publish a brief presentation of the upcoming Anarchist Book fair in Patras, organized by the self-organised social centre “Epi ta proso”.

2nd Anarchist bookfair in Patras

To be held on May 28, 29 & 30 in “Esperos” (atrium by Georgiou Square, the central square of the city)

Organizing the first Anarchist bookfair in Patras, Greece, last May was an idea with which comrades participating in the self-organised social centre “Epi ta proso” had been flirting for quite some time. The success of last year’s event and the positive feedback encouraged us to hold the bookfair this year too, hoping that it will be established as an annual 3-day event featuring book presentations, discussions, exhibitions, cultural events and, first and foremost, the abundance and quality of titles from anarchist and radical publishers and distributors.

The aim of this festival is to bring out the wealth of anarchist, antiauthoritarian and libertarian concepts and diffuse anarchist ideas into society, especially young people across the city. This is particularly important at a time when state propaganda against those who opt for self-organization and grass-roots inititatives as a means to fight prevails, and racism, social cannibalism and turning to fascism are presented as the sole options to overcome the unfolding crisis.

Patras, May 29-31: First Anarchist Book Fair Brief presentation of the upcoming anarchist book fair in Patras, Greece.

“Anarchist books are a weapon against modern totalitarianism”

Organizing the first Anarchist book fair in Patras, Greece has been an idea with which comrades currently participating in the self-organized social center “Epi ta proso”1 have been flirting for quite some time.

The aim of this festival is to bring out the wealth of anarchist, anti-authoritarian and libertarian concepts and diffuse anarchist ideas into society, especially young people across the city. This is particularly important at a time when state propaganda against those who opt for self-organization and grass-roots initiatives as a means to fight prevails, and racism, social cannibalism and turning to fascism are presented as the sole options to overcome the unfolding crisis.

At the same time, even within the resistance movement, political discussion and exchange of ideas to achieve a more in-depth analysis is treated with contempt; we thus believe that promoting self-education, political and theoretical investigation, preserving social and working-class memory against lifestyle anarchism and political hooliganism are of prime importance in the direction of a wider reconstruction of the radical and revolutionary movement.
