At the same time when power crouches together into one single pro-austerity block (with the first coalition government in decades), grassroots resistance in Greece is spreading wildly. We had already reported on the wildcat occupations and strikes across Greece in response to the government-imposed “emergency property tax”, made payable via household electricity bills. Now, following the lead of the Athens municipality of Nea Ionia, at least 10 municipalities across the country have called their residents not to pay the tax, in an unprecedented call for civil disobedience. The municipalities calling for this action, so far are those of Nea Ionia, Elliniko, Argiroupoli, Saronikos, Peristeri, Ilio, Korydallos, Larisa, Ag. Ioannis Renti and Amarousion. All but one are in the greater Athens region.
Once again, the video showing step-by-step how everyone can reconnect their electricity connection, below.
When faced with naked fascism taking over power, the only way left is active, mass resistance where it hurts them the most.
