(48HStrike Updates) So its final now… Greece need your solidarity!

Images from the demonstration in Syntagma square 02/11

A few thousand people in front of the parliament. In the afternoon there is a call for an anti-ACTA demonstration. Up to this time (14.25) still some people remain in Syntagma square.

We need the solidarity of the Greek people in Europe and all progressive Europeans.

We, for our part, are going to gather in front of Parliament in Syntagma Square, Athens, where inside they will be voting for the massacre of the popular masses in Greece, the workers and the middle class.There will be meetings in central points of all cities and smaller places all over the country.

There are a few of the stupid Members of Parliament who voted for all the program and the Memorandum before, who will not vote for them now, but the number of votes in favor will most probably be enough for the Memorandum and the massacring laws to pass.
At the same time, some ministers and vice ministers have already resigned, which is good but far from enough.

We call people in Europe to consider demonstrating in front of the Greek Embassies from 5 p.m. until 10 or 12 (if possible) p.m. as Lisbon and Brussels did yesterday. We want to stress that the Greek people is only a guinea-pig for all the measures the establishment wants to pass in Europe, in all countries.
SOLIDARITY NOW!

14.13 GMT+2 Chaotic scenes around Syntagma, with people arrested in the side streets. A block of a few hundreds is still standing before the parliament building. On Ermou Street, people are fighting back, hurdling stones.

14.10 GMT+2 At least one demonstrator seriously injured by the police.

13.35 GMT+2 Clashes between demonstrators and police in Syntagma, many molotov cocktails thrown at police, who launch a full-scale attack.

The masks have fallen completely… IMF, EU officials and “our” government (the non-elected, ex-banker new prime minister with his 3 political allies, main responsible for this crisis  & ruling the last 40years) has decided yesterday for a 3rd even harder, more destructive package of austerity measures which will turn Greece to the country it was just after the 2nd World War…

The new salaries after this agreement will reach around 350 euros in a country with an increased living cost (and among the highest prices concerning food, fuel, services)…
The cuts in the last 2 years have reached more than 50% of average salary income while Greek banks are getting millions and big corporations are paying less and less taxes…
Debt from the other hand is getting bigger and bigger as the economy is paralyzed… A dead end policy…
In a country of 10 million 4000 people loose their jobs EVERY DAY, the homeless in the streets of Athens have increased rapidly just the last 5-6 months… Homeless who till recently had a house and a normal life…

We need your solidarity,

Spread the news, don’t believe the main media…
There is a call for 48hrs general strike and protest for the next 3 days.
Greece is just the experiment of an economical model that will be used for all of us…

About author
We are just like you, citizens of the world fed up with the critical situation and we believe a real change can be achieved through the coordination of non violent actions and self-managed alternatives around the world. There must be a better way of dealing with the survival and enjoyment of our life, we believe in consensus and in non-hierarchical organization. We believe that another world is possible, where nobody has to die of hunger while others throw food away. We don’t have flags and we fight the borders crossing them. We try to be in the best place at the good moment, from Brussels to Lisbon, from Madrid to Athens, reporting but also acting. We come from activist groups, hacking platforms or post capitalist projects and we participated a lot in the Spanish revolution since the beginning. We leave our respective assemblies for this international project of global coordination but we keep in touch, sending back information and visiting regularly. We are open to integrate new people to our project or to help the creation of new teams. More information about our way to work in the protocol.
