Anarchist international call in Greece
There has been a tentative call on various websites including Face book, for anarchists to create brigades to be sent to help our comrades in arms. Check link below:
The statement reads:
"Greece needs help now! Enter this group and create international brigades for anarchy: organise the brigades in countries worldwide and coordinate group departures to Greece----ANARCHY AND SOLIDARITY!"
I don't know about others but I am not in the finacial or physical position to drop everything and head up to Greece this insant. I don't think many of us are, but what we should take from this is the urgent need to bring the sitation in Greece to our own city streets.
Much like the early months of Spain 1936, our comrades need us to dispell the media myths and clouded interpretations of what is happening. It doesn't take much to show how Greece's situation is not that disimilair to what's happening all over the World. Privatisation of Water, Mineral and resource grabs by multi-nationals, democratic institutions being over thrown to be replaced with more favourable elites, mass lay off's and increased poverty...ring any bells?
So what can we do? There are various groups in Aotearoa that have the ability to print, rally, hold meetings and spread the word of what is happening in Greece and show how it is directly related to what's happening in our own communities.
If we make a point of showing the links we may see what was only hinted at on May1st blosom into a mass movement.
