"The continuing revolution, by speech, by letter, by dagger, by riffle, by dynamite, whatever does not belong to bourgeois legality, belong to us" (P.Kropotkin)
The Situation in Greece
The year of 1998, started for anarchists in Greece, with very intense events, like the imprison of Nikos Maziotis, for the placing of a self made exploding device, at the ministry of Development.
It is the first time, since 1974 – when the military dictatorship failed - , that a struggler claims the responsibility for the actions he is accused for – for placing explosive device and for occupation of weapons and explosives. It is a case, where anarchists stand by, in solidarity to Nikos Maziotis, opposition with former arrests, which use to bring a numb to solidarity actions.
Since the first day of the arrest, tens of arsons took place in solidarity to Nikos Maziotis and marches which ended to clashes with the police. State, in order to confront this out-of-control situation, arrested and imprisoned comrades, whose warrants were active from the uprising of Polytechnic ’95.
Anarchists, in front of this first-seen situation, show factual their solidarity, no matter the difference of their opinions. In front of this state attack, they appear coiled, something that annoy the state.
Threw the multiform action, the anarchist social solidarity is developed, something important, not only for the solidarity to a prisoner, but as a part of the social war.
Another fact, is that the state, mainly threw the media, tries to create a climate of xenophobia and racism against the immigrants, (especially the Albanians), in order to disorientate people from the exaltation of the economical attack they suffer, especially this time, which has as result the mobilisations of several social parts and the inflate of social anger.
