“We don’t forget, we don’t forgive” – day of international action against state murders, 20.12.2008

Today (Friday), the assembly of the occupied Athens Polytechnic decided to make a callout for European and global-wide actions of resistance in the memory of all assassinated youth, migrants and all those who were struggling against the lackeys of the state. Carlo Juliani; the French suburb youths; Alexandros Grigoropoulos and the countless others, all around the world. Our lives do not belong to the states and their assassins! The memory of the assassinated brothers and sisters, friends and comrades stays alive through our struggles! We do not forget our brothers and sisters, we do not forgive their murderers. Please translate and spread around this message for a common day of coordinated actions of resistance in as many places around the world as possible.

    “Emme unohda, emme anna anteeksi” – Kansainvälinen toimintapäivä valtion tekemiä murhia vastaan lauantaina 20.12.

    Ateenan Teknillisen Yliopiston valtaus päätti perjantaina illalla tehdä kutsun maailmanlaajuiseen vastarintaan kaikkien murhattujen nuorten, maahanmuuttajien ja valtion palvelijoita vastaan taistelleiden muistoksi. Carlo Giuliani; Ranskan lähiönuoret; Alexandros Grigoropoulos ja lukemattomat muut, kaikkialla maailmassa. Elämämme eivät kuulu valtioille ja niiden murhaajille! Murhattujen siskojen ja veljien, ystävien ja tovereiden muisto säilyy elossa taistelujemme kautta! Emme unohda veljiämme ja siskojamme, emme anna anteeksi heidän murhaajilleen. Kääntäkää tämä viesti ja levittäkää sitä niin moniin paikkoihin kuin mahdollista.

    Clever move, very clever to make the entire Europe burn. We should tolerate it not nor go along with this. Your fire has run out – you have failed. Without your plans of change and with your riots, destruction and looting you have painted yourselves as something criminal. Your ideals are dying-you have no idea how to proceed. All you know is just destruction. In the end you fu*ed up your citys and hometowns ruined businesses during already bad economic period. And for what-change? For that killed boy Alexandros Grigoropoulos? This carried you around just until you brought no solutions before the people. And now is that time. Now is your time to move the nations, move the world. But if you do not, if you fail to have a plan of operations,the vision of future not some vague illusion of pink utopia then you must fail for every living soul on this planet. You must fail because stupidity with anger always creates more horror and suffering than corrupted politicians whom are democratically elected. So fall or win because this is the endgame Greek rioters!

    Take control of the workplaces, communities, streets, universities etc. Run them democratically. Move production and distribution from means to needs.

    The only criminals are the cops & state.

    Then we went to Alsancak Pier and got abroad to the ferry, pretending to be ordinary passengers.

  28. Solidarity from Istanbul: WE WILL NOT FORGET, WE WILL NOT FORGIVE

    http://athens.indymedia.org/front.php3?lang=en&article_id=952127

    THE BLINK IN OUR EYES MAY SPARK A FIRE
    Master should know that the bullet that shoot Alexis from his chest also injured us from our hearts.

    Hundreds of people who attended “international action against state murders” call of “assembly of the occupied Athens Polytechnic” came together in Taksim Square of Istanbul and said “ALL STATES ARE MURDERERS. WE WILL NOT FORGET, WE WILL NOT FORGIVE.”

    Despite it was raining a lot, people who gave ear to the call signed “Anarchists and Anti-authoriters” started to collect at 14:30 in Taksim Square. İstanbulAhali, İzmitAhali and LyceAnarchistAction(LAF) group members made entrance to action area together with their black, black-red flags. All together with other Anarchist groups and persons and also femminists, there were more than 200 people in the area. Participants carried photos of Alexis and many other people who were killed by state and also their names and a sentence about how and why they were killed. And they painted their faces to white imitating deaths. Participants opened a 17 meters long pancarte written “ALL STATES ARE MURDERERS. WE WILL NOT FORGET, WE WILL NOT FORGIVE”. And they pored at the police, symbol of state, for 15 minutes in silence and they let them see their anger.

    Then the press statement was read. İn statement, after listing some murders, was said: “These eyes saw murderers of all unresolved assassinations, these eyes saw you masters. We have our eyes on you masters. The blink in our eyes may spark a fire.”

    After press statement with an outspreading voice they shouthed “we will not forget, we will not forgive” in turkish and kurdish languages. And they signed that murders of state will not be left unanswered, and will be answered by rebellion of all oppressed people.

    After the slogans below action finished.
    “Rebellion, Revolution, Anarchy”
    “All states are murderers”
    “All states are terrorists”
    “All polices are murderers”
    “What the states do is only genocide”
