The days of their affluence are just a few!
Encirclement of the House of Parliament Tuesday, September 27, 7pm
After the visits by the international usurers eventually the task force of European Commission came to to oversee if the agreements to sell out our lives to the Troika and the EC are being implemented. Now we live officially under occupation by the the capital, corporations and banks.
The Greek experiment worked out! Unemployment and redundancies reached the maximum and the minimal social benefits of the past evaporated. We are witnessing the violation of all those few rights, the sell off of health and education provisions along a new labour insecurity. At the same time every day new taxations are popping up, along with new “punishments” if we do not succumb to the blackmailing.
The latest feat is the predatory so called ‘real estate tax’, this was added to our already stifling daily lives and has caused social outrage and despair. Like the salary reductions, the redundancies, the arbitrary constant increases in VAT (23% and even food staples) and the price increases in all essentials, transportation and heating are not enough – Now the authoritarian capitalists are asking all those who have a house (as if they are any capitalist big owners), without excluding the unemployed, to pay for second and third time an unaffordable tax on their homes. However, they are excepting from taxation the huge church property (instead of confiscating it)! The absurd thing is that they try to collect this tax through the electricity bills and threatening to deprive the people essential survival supplies such as electricity, if they not obey.
But we know very well: what they call economic crisis is just a game of capitalism, which is trying to degrade us and to accumulate even more wealth in the hands of few. It’s a war declared by the capital against human societies (currently it is us, but this war has gradually acquires global features) aiming to turn us all into slaves and minions.
Our response cannot be anything else but a generalised revolt and collective resistance!
It’s time to stop paying any tax, fee or whatever names they give to this robbery!
To get on the streets all of us (workers, unemployed, students, school pupils) and to cancel confiscations and auctions, to prevent collectively anyone who will come to cut the power
supply to the homes where residents chose not to pay the new tax!
To revive the values of solidarity and mutual aid!
It’s time to collectively deny this misery! to get our lives in our hands and to get free from capitalism!
