Η ΑΛΛΗΛΕΓΓΥΗ ΘΑ ΝΙΚΗΣΕΙ
STOP THE WAR ON MIGRANTS
The EU and the Turkish and Greek states have decided to play with human lives. In recent days many immigrants have been attempting to cross the border from Turkey to Greece, but are being violently blocked by Greek security forces. The Greek government has decided to close the borders and keep anyone seeking asylum from getting in the country – with the full support of the EU.
Frontex and the Greek coastguard violently prevent boats from reaching the Greek islands, with one child drowning so far. NGOs and journalists covering the incidents in the islands have been attacked by nationalists, while “angry civilians” and racists have used force to prevent migrants from disembarking from unsafe boats. At the land borders, the military, police forces, armed civilians and fascists have gathered to block immigrants by firing tear gas and even live ammo. Two immigrants have been shot dead so far and several wounded.
Greek mainstream media and the government propagate fake news claiming that this is an “invasion”, the immigrants are criminals and that people should protect their country. The reality is that closing borders creates bottlenecks in the flow of people, which leads to dire circumstances in fewer and fewer border crossings. This media manipulation is done whenever the state wants to create an “enemy” to society. Scapegoating is a tried and true method of using intolerance to keep the status quo unchallenged.
Meanwhile, refugees that are already in Greece live in camps in horrible conditions. The EU granted 700 million euros to the Greek state, much of it being used for military and police operations. All of this money – and much more that ends up in the pockets of those in power – could be used to help migrants safely arrive and settle in Europe. However, building a fortress Europe is a priority to the EU. Whenever the bosses need cheap labour hands, they open the borders to exploit immigrants in every way possible, without giving them rights, and whenever they have enough labour force, they propagate that immigrants are a threat.
Borders kill! The EU and NATO are guilty of war crimes in countries across the Middle East with sanctions and aggression against Iran causing many to flee their homes in search of a better life. The situation in Libya has degraded into chaos after NATO destabilized the country and EU-paid and trained coastguards routinely shoot and kill migrants. The EU has profited from war and previously bribed Turkey to detain those that attempt to flee. Now that the Turkish state has opened the border, the EU can no longer outsource this brutal migrant policy and the Greek state has now become a violent “shield”. Everyone should be accepted, whether they leave their country due to a war or poverty or a repressive state. The earth does not belong to anyone and no one leaves their land for no reason!
Nothing is over yet! Migrants have protested several times over their abysmal treatment in Greece and Europe and those who have not managed to pass the borders are still struggling to do it after all of what they have been through; wars, tortures, violence, hunger, and repressive governments. Their struggle is also our struggle, a social struggle against the exploitation of our lives and for a free society. Struggles which create bonds between us that no authority, no boss, and no power structure can break.
We are angry because the governments are playing with people’s lives. We welcome migrants in our neighbourhoods, our schools, our working places, and in our social struggles. Freedom of movement!
