NO NAME DIVIDES US
NO NATION UNITES US
PROLETARIANS HAVE NO MOTHER COUNTRY
The resurgence of the “Macedonian issue” has been a rare opportunity for all kinds of nationalist and fascist scums to take up space in the public discourse and try to promote their murderous political plans. The nationalist rallies in Thessaloniki and Athens served this very purpose.
It became obvious, even to the most naive, that the supposedly non-partisan and non-political character of the rally, promoted with so much diligence by the mass media, was simply a sheepskin disguising the beast that hid underneath it; the beast that -as it turned out- did not need much to feel confident and reveal its real face. At the Nationalist rally in Thessaloniki, on 21/01, fascist groups attacked the Free Social Space “School” (where they were pushed back) as well as the Libertatia squat (where they proceeded to setting the building on fire conveniently covered by the cops who were present). They also attempted to attack the anti-nationalist gathering at Kamara, while during the same day the Golden Dawn proceeded to the desecration of the Jewish Holocaust Memorial. In addition, at the end of the respective rally in Athens, on 04/02, they attacked the Free Self-Managed Theater “EMPROS” (where they were also pushed back by its members). Fortunately, however, the anti-fascist reflexes of the movement did not allow them to further expand such actions.
NO FASCIST ASSAULT WILL REMAIN UNANSWERED
The oppressed and exploited have nothing to divide among us. Our oppressors are the same and they have the same names, regardless of their nationality; they are no others than the state and capital. We must, therefore, struggle together with the oppressed and the exploited of all countries in order to create a common internationalist front that will raise a barrier to nationalism and fascism; a common front which will declare as loudly as possible that the we will not allow the bosses to divide us on the basis of nationality, color, sexual orientation, sex, religion or any other terms of segregation, a common front that is determined to fight for a stateless, classless, non-national(ist) life.
