Politische, praktische und solidarische Gemeinschaft

Der folgende Text ist von einer lokalen Seite aus Leipzig übernommen:

„In Wirklichkeit war das Einzige, was wir vorgeschlagen haben, die Welt zu verändern; den Rest haben wir improvisiert.“ Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos.

Wir sitzen in einem verrauchten Raum mit vielleicht so 10 Personen. Auf dem Tisch liegt ein Haufen von Orangen und Mandarinen neben einer Skyline von Kaffeebechern. Der Straßenlärm dröhnt, meine Finger graben sich in die Schale einer Orange, während ich abwechselnd griechischen und englischen Beiträgen zum Plenum lausche. Das Plenum geht seit ein paar Stunden, es gibt keine Pause. Zwischendurch gehen Menschen raus, holen sich Tee, Kaffee. Wir, ein Haufen deutscher Kartoffeln werden uns später darüber unterhalten, wie wenig wir gewöhnt sind, auf Plena zu sitzen, die länger als 2 Stunden gehen. Ich, in Deutschland sozialisiert und dort aktuell sich am meisten aufhaltend, bin zunächst überfordert. Continue reading

Some impressions from our Community

Update on the riot police attack on the gathering at the GADA

On 16/03, we gathered outside GADA, after the arrest of our comrades in Victoria Square where the cops in an organized operation against refugees and migrants bullied and arrested those who tried to stop them. Among the 14 arrested is a comrade active in the Community of Squatted Prosfigika. The gathering of about fifty people was attacked by the cops with aggressive characteristics after our comrades refused to leave their position. They hit comrades with shields and globes, threw people down and kicked them.

As we were returning to our neighborhood after the gathering, cops blocked our way, forcing us to go elsewhere deliberately, knowing that we were from Prosfigika. Then they chased us to Trichonidos and entered our neighborhood. Our comrades defended our community by making it clear to the cops that the Prosfigika neighborhood will never be a breeding ground for bullying and threats. People who were already in the neighborhood opened the doors for the comrades, the corresponding positions were taken, while at the same time they were heard by their radios to retreat.

If we do not resist in all neighborhoods, our cities will become modern prisons! 

We stand with migrants, deportation to cops and Nazis!

Small-kidnaps from the cops in Prosfygika on 23/2

Small-kidnaps from the cops in Prosfygika on 23/2
In the morning of Wednesday 23/2 two comrades of the community were doing their daily patrol of Prosfygika’s neighborhood, around 5:45 a civil jeep cop car raided the neighborhood and directed towards the two comrades. From the inside of the jeep-car 4 uniformed of OPKE (Crime Prevention and Repression Teams-ΟΠΚΕ) and without a warning they pushed the comrades against the wall and started body searches and of course they did not find anything on them- something that the cops would really like to happen. Then the OPKE left. The comrades continued their patrol and after 15 minutes passed from the body search, two more cars raided and immediately 6 cowboys run onto the comrades and tied them with handcuffs. Afterwards they transported them to the Exarchia’s cop station. They put them in separated cells, controlled them again and questioned them about a stolen vehicle, they understood their stupid mistake and gave up. 
So after an hour in the cells of the cop station, they led free.
Obviously they think that with these unrelated small-kidnaps they will terrorise us, with territory power games. Cops you are fooled if you believe that with those operations a liberated ground will surrender, a ground which is founded by the sharp people of the occupied refugee community.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE DEFENSE OF THE SQUATTED COMMUNITY OF PROSFYGIKA ON ALEXANDRAS AVENUE IN ATHENS

Hello comrades,

We address this call to collectives and individuals from all around the world to join the combative defense of PROSFYGIKA against the imminent repression. The attempted evacuation of our neighborhood must be turned into a central event of resistance and a victory against political power and the gentrification of our neighborhoods in the metropolis.

COLLECTIVE MEMORY, RESISTANCES AND OUR OWN HISTORY

In the conditions of the social struggles that took place during the period 2008-2010, some of the
squatters that we lived in the neighborhood of “Prosfigika” realized that the collectivization was the
only solution for us. Firstly because of the architectural structure of the area which is designed for
community life and secondly because we were suffering from micro-mafias that were looting the
spaces. Since then, several solutions have been provided based on self-organization and also on
problems that had to do sometimes with subletting, sometimes with drug trafficking and child sex
trafficking. As an assembly that was oriented towards the ideals of communal ownership and
perceived the value of use as the only value, we created “community of squatted prosfigika”
(SY.KA.PRO) in 2012. Continue reading

Last news from greek territory struggles

Informations from the perspective of Sy.Ka.Pro

The new season started in low-tension conflictuality with the government despite the fact that during summer huge fires burned one-third of Greek forests. And this destruction clearly occured with the responsibility of the government.

In our squatted community of Prosfygika, on Alexandras Avenue, we run an intense campaign against the repression and gentrification of our neighborhood. We organized several info-events in squares for people to know that the state and the companies want to kick out hundreds of people from the communities houses.
On 5th October, we intervened to the leftist former-government radio station Kokkino and newspaper Avgi with the target to make them publish our statement. We specifically target this party because it is one of the main actor of the gentrification process, pushing the state mechanism to forward its plans.
