I lived in Exarchia in late 70 and early 80’s.
I was on the endless conversations of revolution.
I was at the endlessly events in the square.
I was in the invasion of heroin in the brain and body of people.
The revolution stopped just before begin.
I have the fortune to live and today.
Lived the attack on Greece by the “markets”.
Lived the reaction of the Greeks.
Lived the protests and anger in the streets and squares.
Lived endless conversations about dignity and revolution.
Lived the invasion of fear in the minds of the Greeks from foreign and local politicians, local and foreign media and the world bankers.
Like heroin suppressed the action of “libertarian” in the 80’s, so the fear and uncertainty represses the action of the modern Greeks.
I see people who have no hope for the future, afraid to claim their dignity.
I see unemployed, not to react dynamically , waiting to find someone else in their place and return to the workers.
I see pensioners, who have no money to buy their medicines, to endure patiently their end.
I see students who know they will not ever find a job, still depend on the system.
I see traders, who have no customers and they support neoliberal views.
I see people, be grateful that they get little.
I see young people not have the ability to have children.
I see homeless, wandering the poverty and not react.
Fear makes all of them to accept conditions that no decent person would tolerate.
So I ask all of you:
until when will YOU tolerate marginalization ?
until when will YOU vote representatives not representing you, but your bosses ?
until when will YOU give legitimacy to your exterminators ?
We do not expect anything from others!
If we do not react immediately will have the fortune of Exarchia:
People and ideologies simply exist and asleep pretend that react to today’s battles.
Venizelos response to a question why anyone would vote for PASOK said that the people punished PASOK in the May elections and that now can be trusted again (!).
This is the position of the system that governs us all these years.
They believe that the wrath of the people is temporary and fully controlled.
It’s up to us to prove if this is true.
Under these circumstances, there is no meaning at all for the endless discussions and peaceful protests.
We, however, as Metaretriever2, will not come to protests and marches but only in this way:
The end of peace !
