Call-out to all the Workers and the Unemployed in Greece.

By the Popular Assembly of Heraklion, Crete — also see this post.


Call out to all the Workers and the Unemployed in Greece.

The greatest challenge lies ahead of us.

Mobilisations and strikes will either become indefinite and overcome the symbolic level, or they will die out due to the lack of potential. We do not hand out our lives and our dignity to no-one.

  • We plan our mobilisations and we resist.
  • We call all labor unions to call fresh 24-hour and 48-hour General Strikes tomorrow [Thursday].
  • We call everyone in all cities to block off Tax Offices and the branches of the Bank of Greece.

Let’s strike at the heart of the regime, its economy.

Let’s not live like slaves. 

Occupation of the Administrative Periphery of Crete

    Never believed anyone could get this: A 48h strike is useless. The elites laugh about the stupid people , running around and getting beaten by the police.
    Indefinite general strike!
    It is the economy, stupid!

    In the age of finance capital and fictive capital, merely striking – even an indefinite general strike – won’t shift them. Certainly not in one coutnry. The won’t be bothered if strikers starve to death. Occupying everywhere, expropriating the properties of the rich, re-organising the production and distribution of necessities, attacking the state and the economy wherever, by any means necessary – these things might inspire people the world over and launch a revolutionary crisis, but it’ll take several years of trial and error, advance and retreat, action and reflection against reaction and genuflection, to unite proletarian resistance globally.

    They won’T starve , if they start to organize. The rich need us, the working class but we don’t need the rich to build up selforganized communities with permaculture, urban farming and all other important areas of cultural and social life. Squat the communities, the land, the urban space and the factories and enterprizes. We don’t need the rich! We can eat them!

    I’d give my back teeth to see an autonomous Crete, but it is an island and a dry one at that…Rolling general strikes can lead to an indefinite general strike, which can lead to occupations and the necessity of expropriation, but whether this becomes the goal as opposed to a mere strategy, to force the hand of the state, rather than to abolish it, remains to be decided by these antagonistic proletarians. The road is long and hard.

    Simply great! I just hope that the example extends to all Greece and maybe soon to other parts of Europe.

    Greece is not “the sick man of Europe” but the only sane one in this damn continent.

    Sadly what happens in Crete does not get any international media attention, only Athens does and limitedly so. Wouldn’t be for sites like this one we’d know nothing. Thank you.

    Any idea which grouping led the efforts to organize the popular assembly in Heraklion, or what is the dominant force within it?
