State terrorism will not prevail!
The people’s struggle will win!
Without any provocation or pretext the PASOK government attacked and bloodied the huge demonstration of May the 11th 2011 during the general strike in Athens. The government, scared of the “enemy people’s” rise, initiated an orgy of state violence and terrorism using its praetors, the riot police, against the demonstrators.
Our block, as well as several other blocks, received an unprovoked and maniacal attack by the riot police, who surrounded the demonstration in order to dissolve it, and went on with relentless use of tear gas and savage beatings against workers, unemployed, young people and women. The result was that dozens of demonstrators were transferred to hospital with head injuries. One of them is in Intensive Care fighting for his life after being operated in the head.
The message was clear. The government and their masters, the imperialists of the IMF and the EU, want to stop any popular resistance against the austerity measures. The people must stay in its corner terrified. We “must not” demonstrate, “must not” strike, “must not” fight back. We “must” accept with fatalism the butchering of our rights, our future, our lives and that of our children.
But they cannot rule out the people’s struggle! The cruel reality that the people are forced to live urges them to the road of resistance. The only way to combat state terrorism and repression is to continue more resolutely and massively our resistance against the barbaric policy of an exploitative and unjust system.
PUNISHMENT OF THE MURDEROUS POLICEMEN!
DEMONSTRATIONS FREE OF POLICE!
THE BARBAROUS POLICY OF GOVERNMENT – EU – IMF WILL BE OVERTHROWN WITH MASS STRUGGLES!
