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.

Anja Flach informiert im Prosfygika über Frauenrevolution

Das Prosfygika ist eine selbstverwaltete Nachbarschaft im Zentrum der griechischen Hauptstadt Athen. Hier fand am Sonntag, 7/11/21, eine gut besuchte Veranstaltung mit der Hamburger Ethnologin und Autorin Anja Flach zur Frauenrevolution in Rojava statt. Bevor Flach die Gäste vorab zur aktuellen Situation in allen Teilen Kurdistans informierte, stellte sich zunächst die griechische Plattform der Kampagne „RiseUp4Rojava“ vor und machte ihre Arbeiten bekannt. Anschließend startete Flach mit der Präsentation des Kurzfilmes „Azadî çi ye?“ ihren Vortrag. Nach den eindrucksvollen Stimmen der Frauen aus Rojava folgte eine kurze Erläuterung über die momentane politische Lage. Continue reading

Police mobilisation at our neighborhood

Today 11/10/21 an ambulance of the EKAB came to the neighborhood to treat and receive a person with serious health problems. A police car came with them. The cops wanted to break into the building to get the dog that was inside.

We informed them that they could not invade our spaces, that we were taking responsibility for the incident and that we did not need anything. The patrol officer called for backup, falsely reporting that he was in danger from a group of people moving aggressively against them.

In no time a riot squad of MAT and a YMET (blue Riot Police) approached from two sides the people of the neighborhood who had gathered to prevent their invasion of the neighborhood. Very quickly the platoons retreated when the assembled neighbourhood started approaching them shouting and finally they were driven away under the general outcry they received from the neighbourhood balconies and from the patients of St. Sava Hospital. The immediate numerous mobilization of the comrades/compañeros and residents was done in defense of the community and the neighborhood.

The old dog of the house was removed with our help and our sick neighbor was transported without any problem by the ambulance. The cops once again showed up in the neighborhood only to cause trouble, only to show they were in control, which once again failed.

Saturday, October 16, 12:00 Demonstration at Metro Panormou

financial support call from germany

article from de.indymedia

poster says:

Prosfygika has been occupied for several decades and has been a place of refuge and self-organization for refugees, migrants and activists since the 1920s. Due to the increasing authoritarian formation and the wave of evictions in Greece, Prosfygika is very threatened. Around 400 people with diverse histories (political communist refugees from Turkey, refugees from Moria, Greek anarchists, Kurdish activists, and many more) live together and organize in various ways: communal bread baking, market sales, a Wom*n’s Cafe, and a collectively run kiosk. Prosfygika stands for a neighborhood that is resistant to fascist and capitalist attacks.
Let’s be together in practical solidarity and collect donations against repression costs.

“We are concious of our ability to take our lives into our own hands. We defend the Squatting Movement and Prosfygika (…)
of challenging domination indeed and as a part of social leberation.”

A MESSAGE OF SOLIDARITY WITH LGBTI+

Homophobic and transphobic attacks of the male-dominates system continue all over the world. In June, there was a police attack on the pride parade in Turkey, on July 5, fascists and racists attacked the LGBTI+ office in Tbilisi, Georgia, and on the same day, an LGBTI+ healthcare worker was murdered in Spain. Additionally, the Hungarian government presented a new homophobic law against LGBTI+ on July 7. 

We express our solidarity with all LGBTI+ affected by these brutal attacks and with all LGBTI+ around the world. We want to underline our solidarity with refugee-LGBTI+, as they face especially hard discrimination. 

Let’s destroy the homophobic and transphobic system together!
Freedom to all sexual and gender identities!
Leave no one ever alone!

Οι ομοβοβικές και τρανσοφοβικές επιθέσεις της πατριαρχίας, συνεχίζονται σε ολόκληρο τον κόσμο. Τον Ιούνιο, η αστυνομία επιτέθηκε στην παρέλαση υπερηφάνειας στην Τουρκία, στις 5 Ιουλίου, φασίστες και ρατσιστές επιτέθηκαν στα γραφεία της LGBTI+ κοινότητας στην Τιφλίδα της Γεωργίας και την ίδια ημέρα, έν@ LGBTI+ εργαζόμεν@ υγείας, δολοφονήθηκε στην Ισπανία. Επίσης, η Ουγγρική κυβέρνηση παρουσίασε έναν νέο ομοφοβικό νόμο ενάντια στην LGBTI+ κοινότητα,  στις 7 Ιουλίου.
Εκφράζουμε την αλληλεγγύη μας στην LGBTI+ κοινότητα που βάλλεται από όλες τις βίαιες επιθέσεις και στεκόμαστε μαζί με την  LGBTI+ κοινότητα σε όλον τον κόσμο. Θα θέλαμε να υπογραμμίσουμε την αλληλεγγύη μας, ειδικά στην LGBTI+ προσφυγική κοινότητα, που αντιμετωπίζει  ιδιαιτέρως σκληρές διακρίσεις. 
Ας καταστρέψουμε το ομοφοβικό και τρανσφοβικό  σύστημα μαζί!
Λευτεριά σε όλες τις ταυτότητες φύλου και σεξουαλικότητας! Ποτέ κανέν@ μόν@!

Erkek egemen sistemin homofobik ve transfobik saldırıları tüm dünyada devam ediyor. Haziran’da Türkiye’de onur yürüyüşüne polis saldırısı oldu, 5 Temmuz’da Gürcistan’ın Tiflis kentindeki LGBTİ+ ofisine faşistler ve ırkçılar saldırdı ve aynı gün İspanya’da bir LGBTİ+ sağlık çalışanı öldürüldü. Ek olarak, Macar hükümeti 7 Temmuz’da LGBTİ+’lara karşı yeni bir homofobik yasa sundu.

Bu vahşi saldırılardan etkilenen tüm LGBTİ+’larla ve dünyadaki tüm LGBTİ+’larla dayanışmamızı ifade ediyoruz. Özellikle ağır ayrımcılığa maruz kaldıkları için mülteci-LGBTİ+ ile dayanışmamızın altını çizmek istiyoruz.

Homofobik ve transfobik sistemi birlikte yok edelim!
Tüm cinsel ve cinsiyet kimliklerine özgürlük!
Hiç kimseyi yalnız bırakma!

 نعرب عن تضامننا مع جميع LGBTI + المتضررين من هذه الهجمات الوحشية ومع جميع LGBTI + في جميع أنحاء العالم.  نريد أن نؤكد تضامننا مع اللاجئين LGBTI + ، لأنهم يواجهون تمييزًا شديدًا بشكل خاص.

 دعونا ندمر نظام رهاب المثليين والمتحولين جنسياً!  الحرية لجميع الهويات الجنسية والجندرية!  لا تترك ابدا أحدا بمفرده!

Τürkiye’deki mücadele eden yoldaşlarımız için yaptığımız eylem ve bir kaç dayanışma sözü

Bugün Türk hükümeti, İstanbul Sözleşmesi hakkında hayati bir karar alıyor. İstanbul Sözleşmesi, bir ulus devlet olan Türkiye için daha adil ve belki de daha az şiddet içeren bir “adalet sistemi”ne doğru bir adım olabilirdi. Türkiye’deki adalet sistemi bu sözleşmenin imzalanması ve uygulanmasıyla, en azından kadınların kişisel ve bedensel bütünlük hakkı gibi temel insan haklarını asgari düzeyde korumak zorunda kalacaktı.
Türkiye’de her üç günde bir kadın, kadın olduğu için öldürülüyor. Ülke totaliter faşist bir rejime doğru devam ederken, kadınlara yönelik şiddet oranı da bununla doğru orantılı olarak artıyor. Faşizm ve kadına yönelik şiddet ve LGBTQI*, tarihte bağlantılıydı. Türkiye, İstanbul Sözleşmesi’nden çekilirken rejimse bize bir kez daha aşağılık ve faşist yüzünü gösteriyor.

Baskıcı ve kadın düşmanı yasalara ve bunları uygulayan ulus devletlere karşı yoldaşlarımızla yan yanayız. Türkiye’deki yoldaşlarımızın geçen bunca yıl boyunca verdikleri mücadeleyi takdir ediyoruz. Tüm dünyada yürütmek zorunda olduğumuz mücadelemizin bir parçası olan bu güçlü ve başarılı hareketi görmek bize güç veriyor.

Haklarımız için verilen mücadelenin devamı için sizlere en derin dayanışmamızı ve gücümüzü gönderiyoruz.
Fasizme karsi omuz omuza!

Istanbul sözlesmesinden vazgecmigoruz!
Kadinlari degil katilleri engelliyin!
Fight violence against women everywhere!
Kadın katliamlarına, nefret cinayetlerine, tacize, tecavüze karşı İstanbul sözleşmesini uygula!
Erkek egemen faşizme karşı yaşasın kadın dayanışması!
Lgbti+ fobiye, nefrete karşı İstanbul sözleşmesini uygula!
Kadın düşmanları gidecek sözleşme kalacak!
Haklarımızdan, hayatlarımızdan, İstanbul sözleşmesinden vazgeçmiyoruz!
WE ARE BEHIND OUR SISTERS IN TURKEY!

Intervention & Words of Solidarity to our fighting comrades in Turkey

Today the Turkish government is deciding about the acceptance or rejection of the Convention of Istanbul. This convention could be a step towards a more fair and maybe a less violent “system of justice” in the nation state of Turkey. Through resigning the convention the justice system in Turkey would not be forced anymore to keep at least the minimum rights of women. Which are the basic human rights like the right to personal and physical integrity. In Turkey, every third day a women gets killed because she is a women. The rate of violence against women is rising through the continues development towards a totalitarian fascist regime. Fascism and violence against women and LGBTQI* had been mostly connected in history. If Turkey is not signing the Convention, the regime is once again showing us its inhume and fascistic face.
We are standing side by side with our comrades against repressive and misogynist laws and the nation states which implements them. We appreciate the fight of our comrades in Turkey for all this passed years and it gives us strength and force to see all this powerful and successful movement for our fight we have to enforce all over the world.
We send you our deepest solidarity and power for the continuity of the fight for our rights.
Faşizme karşi omuz omuza!

Istanbul sözleşmesinden vazgeçmiyoruz!
Kadinlari değil katilleri engelliyin!
Fight violence against women everywhere!
Kadın katliamlarına, nefret cinayetlerine, tacize, tecavüze karşı İstanbul sözleşmesini uygula!
Erkek egemen faşizme karşı yaşasın kadın dayanışması!
Lgbti+ fobiye, nefrete karşı İstanbul sözleşmesini uygula!
Kadın düşmanları gidecek sözleşme kalacak!
Haklarımızdan, hayatlarımızdan, İstanbul sözleşmesinden vazgeçmiyoruz!
