NO EXTRACTION NEVER AND NEVER ---- FREE SEA, THE FORESTS, THE MOUNTAINS ---- At noon on
Thursday, October 24,an anarchist group called "Poor Horse", Israeli comrades and the
"Anarchist Anti-Mining Initiative" took placeoutside the Byzantine Hotel in downtown
Patras against hydrocarbons. ---- There,on the 2nd day of October 23-24, the 3rd Meeting
of the Beneficiaries of the European HarmoNIA project was held on the hydrocarbon
extraction in the Adriatic and Ionian Seaand the pollution management that they will
bring. Among the various European states and universities involved, the main speakers were
HELLENIC PETROLEUM SA. (ELPE), the Hellenic Hydrocarbon Management Company, the Hellenic
Maritime Research Center, representatives of Technical Chambers and Public Services
involved with the environment.

Nowadays, the gigantic design of the Greek state to plunder the natural environment and
society in order to serve the interests of local and global political and economic elites,
and the energy needs of the bankrupt state-capitalist socialist way of life catastrophic
consequences to natural ecosystems and the possibility of decent living for humans in
their places.

The energy industry and the transformation of a place into a hydrocarbon field only
promise to contaminate and contaminate land, water and air, exacerbate social and class
inequalities, and endanger societies due to transnational war conflicts.

This treaty requires an overall social awakening, overcoming assignment, mediation and
inactivity, the power of social and class struggles, the creation of broad,
self-organized, anti-institutional resistance fronts and the creation of embankments
wherever and capitalist aggression.

 From Acheloos, Agrafa and Skouries to Crete, Patraikos and Ionian... and where the
state-capitalist aggression is manifested elsewhere...

In Iraq in October there were mass actions against corruption, mass unemployment and the
deterioration of public services. ---- Whilst ISIS has been heavily defeated in Iraq two
years ago, there has been no improvement in the lot of the Iraqi working class and poor.
Thousands of people, mostly young men, demonstrated on the streets. Once again, as in
Chile, Ecuador and nearby Lebanon, the police and military were brought out to defend the
government led by Adel Abdul Mahdi. Water cannon, tear gas and rubber bullets were used
against the protestors, and at least 149 protestors were killed, most of them shot in the
head, targetted by government snipers. Four thousand people were injured in the unrest.
In the aftermath, seven military commanders were sacked. The unrest subsided on October
7th but fresh waves of demonstrations were planned for Friday, October 25th.

Despite having the fourth largest oil reserves in the world, many are starving in Iraq,
with 60% below the poverty line. The protests initially began against corruption and for
better pay and conditions, but the movement, which appears to be leaderless, is now
demanding the resignation of the Mahdi government.

Scared by the unrest, the principal Shiite spiritual leader in Iraq, Ayatollah Ali
al-Sistani, called on the government to implement reforms.

Many feel that they have nothing to lose and are determined to go on with the protests,
saying that a wholesale overturning of the system is necessary and that if they must die,
it will be with dignity in revolt.

On Thursday, October 17, at 11:00 am members of the Thessaloniki Freedom Initiative and
the Rubikona anarchist collegium (both members of the Anarchist Federation) intervened
within the Turkish Consulate in Thessaloniki. Twelve companions entered the Consulate
where they banners and shouted slogans in favor of the Kurdish resistance. ---- Almost
immediately the consulate's security personnel intervened, trying sharply to detach the
banner. Since this obviously did not prove to be particularly easy, they employed elbows,
knees, kicks etc. Throughout the event, the companions - remaining consistent in their
original decision - maintained a defensive posture blows, without responding
correspondingly. Members of the consulate guard maintained the same aggressive attitude
even after they had removed the banners, restricting them to a corner of the yard where
they were threatened and maimed (they also made the signal to the gray wolves). they were
trying to get their mobile phones. The partners repeatedly and explicitly refused to
surrender until the time of their arrest by the police. Despite the initial entry of two
Greek cops into the consulate yard, the Turkish cops demanded their departure, on the
grounds that the consulate was Turkish territory. As soon as the cops left the scene,
members of the consulate guard began to threaten their companions again, flaunting their
sleeves, removing their watches, and bringing in tizzy bars, implying in every way that
they intended to materialize. their threats if not heard. In spite of the very pressing
and threatening condition, the partners did not accept to surrender their mobiles, nor did
they respond to the constant challenges, remained composed and calm,

The comrades finally surrendered to the police, who, although approaching the point in the
first minutes of the intervention, entered the scene with considerable delay, as the
consulate guard was awaiting instructions from the Turkish Foreign Ministry on whether the
surrender would eventually be allowed. of partners in Greek justice. The defendants were
transported by cops (with the front engines clearing the road and shouting at the drivers
of the vehicles that apparently did not manage to take off in time) to GADT where they
were kept in the basement until 20:00. without being allowed to contact their lawyer. In
their repeated protests for this informal (as long as no charge was still granted)
detention, the only answer they received was that "the diplomats of the two countries are
now talking", making it clear to us that the Greek side would simply dance to the rhythm
of the drum beating Ankara. Even access to water and food, after hours of waiting, was
something they had to demand vigorously in order to be finally given.

A few hours after their arrest, the Turkish Foreign Ministry described members of the two
groups as "anarchist groups known to carry out terrorist acts within the PKK / PYD / YPG",
commenting that "the invaders were detained by consulate officers (...) and surrendered to
the Greek Police before finding the opportunity to harm the members of the consulate or
the workers at Ataturk's home ", demanding in the end that the" intruders "should" receive
their punishment " worth it. " The Greek Foreign Ministry also issued a statement
substantially reassuring the Turkish side that its demand would be upheld and those
arrested would be punished,

They were initially assigned two categories: a) disruption of service and b) disruption of
friendly relations between Greece or its ally with a foreign state with an ally, to which
a third was added: the process of typing and photographing (marking).

A few hours later the second regulated solidarity action on the Kurdish resistance
followed. Comrades from the Thessaloniki Freedom Initiative, the Pueblo Anarchist
Collective and the Rubikon Anarchist Collective (all members of the Anarchist Federation)
intervened in Turkish Airlines' counterparts at the Macedonian airport, opening a meeting.

While the comrades had already left the scene, the cops, in yet another wholly irrelevant
mobilization, stopped the line bus, stormed into it, and with the video being shot by
Turkish Airlines employees one by one controlled the faces. of all passengers in order to
identify the "perpetrators", eventually bringing in 7 people. The defendants were
transferred to GATT with similar "coolness" on the part of the cops and were similarly
detained for many hours without respecting their legal rights, such as contacting their
lawyer.

It is worth noting here the incomprehensible behavior of ELAS members who reprimanded (!)
A HIV-positive partner when they found out about the medication he had brought with him
and for which he had refused to provide further explanation when asked. The reason for the
reprimand was that with this attitude he had finally exposed them "at risk of possible
contamination" as they carried out physical examination without gloves. Apparently the
Greek police believe that HIV is transmitted by touch and even over clothes (!!!).

And these additions have also turned into arrests the category of service disruption
(Turkish Airlines counter, after the company complained that it could not sell tickets
during the intervention) to which the apathy was added, due to the refusal of signage .

On Friday 18/10, all 19 detainees were transferred to the Thessaloniki Courts, in the
context of a self-inflicted police raid (cages, motorcycles, patrols, OPKE) that seems at
least irrelevant to the situation (banners and accusations) . Those arrested by
intervention at the consulate saw the charge of "disturbing relations with an ally state"
not be finally included by the prosecutor in the case file. A preliminary examination has
been ordered for this charge in the future.

The trial of those arrested for interfering with the Turkish consulate was postponed to
Thursday 31/10 and for intervention to Turkish Airlines on Wednesday 30/10.

We support with all our strength the Kurdish movement, the PKK fight in Turkey, the
struggle of the People's and Women's Protection Units (YPG / YPJ) in Syria. What is at
stake is not just the survival of a national group. It is a ray of light on the part that
dominates the absolute darkness of war caused by imperialism and fundamentalism. It is a
hope for the whole world. The hope that you can defeat the ethnic-religious oppressions
without reproducing them, the hope given by the libertarian ideas from which the Kurdish
movement inspired its strategy, that they can solve the murderous deadlocks created by its
ideas and practices. We were, are and will be in solidarity with each other.

Let everyone remember this.

The 50th weekly protests of the yellow vest movement were held in solidarity with the
anti-capitalist struggle of Latin American workers and preparations for large-scale
performances in France. Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of a dozen large
cities. The central march this time was held in Saint-Etienne. ---- In Saint-Etienne,
protesters marched around Bellevue, La Riviere and Center-Dé. Among them were not only
locals, but also activists who came from Lyon, Clermont-Ferrand, Haute-Loire and even from
Ardeche. Large police forces were mobilized against them. CRS Special Forces blocked the
paths to the Loire Prefecture and General Foix Street leading to Piazza Naroda. Having
gathered on this square at 14.00, the demonstrators did not go in the center, but headed
to Belleville. A police helicopter circled over the protesters. On Robespierre Street, on
the way to the RN88 highway, where the demonstrators intended to block traffic, the march
came across gendarmes in helmets and batons. The first clashes erupted, the police began
firing grenades with gas. The demonstrators retreated and began to zigzag along the La
Riviere area. Ahead of the guards of the capitalist order, they went onto the freeway in
front of the tunnel and at 16.00 for a quarter of an hour blocked traffic on both sides
with metal cans. The riot police who arrived in time with the help of tear gas still
managed to push them back. Accompanied by the gendarmes on the heels, the demonstrators
returned to Center-Dô and dispersed through the streets of the residential area behind the
shopping center. Several times they again tried to break into the center of the city, but
they were driven away by jets of gas. The smaller crowd eventually returned to where the
demonstration began - on People's Square. At about 6 p.m. the campaign ended. Police
reported detentions ( Accompanied by the gendarmes on the heels, the demonstrators

In Paris, demonstrators gathered in the quarter of Bercy, near the Ministry of Economy and
Finance, chanting "Macron to resign" and "We will not give up." At 2:00 pm, the protesters
marched along Bersi Boulevard, overgrown with new groups on the road. They were followed
by a dozen CRS special forces vans. "They robbed us so much that they even stole our
fear," one of the procession participants said, carrying a yellow banner with the
inscription: "Precarised women, women in the war: gender-based violence, social violence -
one struggle with capital." At the metro Domenil the crowd makes a stop. "People are
starving in France and tired of the situation they are in. Yellow vests have broken the
conspiracy of silence," explains 30-year-old Amel. 73-year-old Alain, participating in
promotions for the 24th consecutive week, tells reporters: "One of my main motives for
going out is pension reform." On some banners and posters, calls could be made to support
a general strike on December 5. In front of the Square of the Nation, a hundred Chileans
join the procession. They sing the famous song of the 1970s: "El Pueblo Unido hamas sera
vencido". Demonstrators demand the resignation of Chilean President Pinhera. In the Square
of the Nation, the procession begins to diverge, but some climb the monument to the
Triumph of the Republic. They burn smoke bombs and chant slogans of solidarity with the
Chileans. The demonstration went on to Colonel Fabien Square. Clashes with the police
broke out on the road to Belleville (19th and 11th arrondissement of Paris). The
administration was forced to close the metro station. Police attacked the protesters with
batons and tear gas, they built barricades of burning garbage and containers. The battles
continued until early evening ...

"Yellow vests" promised large-scale protests on November 16 and 17 - the first anniversary
of the movement. "Soon it will be a year since the protest continues. I can't believe it.
The 17th will be crazy. I think they don't understand what will happen," promised
50-year-old Laurent, an activist in the movement order service of the yellow vests. -
Macron is playing with people. The country is going in the wrong direction. Everything is
rotten. "()

In Toulouse, the "yellow vests" went on an undeclared march in the city center. Literally
20 minutes after the start of the procession, he was attacked by police using tear gas.
During the clashes, 1 policeman was injured, 2 people were detained. The next day, the
"yellow vests" held a general assembly

In Montpellier, a march in the center of the city was, contrary to custom, held not in the
afternoon, but in the evening hours. At about 10.30 p.m., the demonstrators moved from
Comedy Square to Saint-Roche Train Station along Magellon Street, interrupting the
movement of trams along the 1st line and disrupting traffic along other lines. Mobile
gendarmes and police took up positions in front of the station, putting up cordons. In
addition, in the morning at the junction Pre-d`Aren at the southern gates of the city,
dozens of "yellow vests" put up pickets, organizing a slowdown in vehicle traffic. Sitting
under the banner "We are here", the group lasted until the evening
(https://actu.fr/occitanie/montpellier_34172/video-montpellier-gilets-jaunes-des-militants-la-ldh-ce-soir-dans-rues_28950104.html).

In Lille, the demonstration took place without major clashes, and yet the police seized 3
people: a young pregnant woman, a woman in a wheelchair and an elderly woman. Participants
took this as an attempt by the authorities to intimidate protesters. Having reached the
Republic Square, the demonstrators began to disperse. The remaining group gathered around
5 p.m. in front of the Palace of Fine Arts, surrounded by a large cordon of police special
forces. Other demonstrators joined in protesting the expulsion of Algerian activist
Mohamed Lakel. When the police took away the detained demonstrator, everyone chanted:
"Power is a killer"

"Macron, pork head, we came for you," chanted hundreds of demonstrators in Pertuis
(Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region). For the first time after a summer break, protesters
gathered at the roundabout on May 8 in the early afternoon. Putting a puppet of the
president with a crown on his head, demonstrators walked around the city. The action was
attended by activists from the Durance Valley, Aix, Avignon, Senas, members of the Ataq
movement, trade unions, public service advocates ... The procession went to the city
center, stopped in front of the firemen, and then returned and organized discussions. A
group of "anonymous" unsuccessfully tried to break into the hypermarket

In Abbeville (Somme department), yellow vests also expressed solidarity with the
firefighters' struggle.
(https://actu.fr/hauts-de-france/abbeville_80001/abbeville-gilets-jaunes-soutiennent-pompiers_28956369.html).

In Besancon, the march was held under the traditional "Police everywhere, justice is
nowhere": remembered the victims of police violence
(https://www.estrepublicain.fr/edition-de-besancon/2019/10/26/plainte-classee-sans-suite-des-gilets-jaunes-en-colere)

In Epinal, clashes erupted between participants in a regional demonstration and the
police. Starting at 14.30 from the parking lot on the Champ de Mars, the demonstrators
walked around the police cordons and after 18.00 returned to the starting point
(https://www.vosgesmatin.fr/edition-d-epinal/2019/10/26/350-gilets-jaunes-ont-manifeste-a-epinal).
In the morning, at all entrances to the city, the "yellow vests" put up "flying pickets."
There were at least 5, and they significantly slowed down the movement of vehicles
(https://www.gj-magazine.com/gj/epinal-les-gilets-jaunes-installent-des-barrages-filtrants-aux-entrees-de-la-ville/)
During the day, the forces of capitalist order protection concentrated at the prefecture
and put up cordons to protect the forbidden zone. At 14.30, the demonstrators marched from
the Lesser Mars Field to the Patch Bridge, intending to go further along Lozh Blanche
Avenue, Alsace Street and Victor Hugo Avenue. The traffic in the area of the bridge was
very difficult. At 14.50 on the Alsace street, the first clashes with police special
forces took place. But the demonstrators managed to get to Emil Sten Square and continue
on Hugo Avenue. CRS vans blocked access to the waterfront; the demonstrators retreated and
marched along Hugo Avenue. By 15.25 the procession approached the station of Epinal and
was about to move along Dulak Avenue; some participants wanted to go to the city center,
but the CRS blocked the path. As a result, the demonstration was divided in two: part of
it went along Dulak Avenue, the other - to the center, through the promenade Merth.
However, attempts to break through the embankment failed, and the departed part returned
back, reunited with those who walked along Dulak Avenue. A police helicopter flew over the
procession. By 15.50 the demonstrators reached the intersection of Nancy and the Republic.
After 10 minutes, special forces blocked the procession at the crossroads of Nancy Street
and Boulay de Merth Street. Threatening tear gas, the police prevented the demonstrators
from moving further to the city center. After 4.20 p.m., clashes broke out on Nancy
Street; gas was started. Fending off the guards of the capitalist order, the protesters
retreated to the Avenue of the Republic and went to the Doneville embankment, in an
attempt to nevertheless break into the center. After 16.45, garbage cans lit up first on
Donville, and then on Gilgo Square. Around 17. 25 special forces managed to push back the
demonstrators in the district of Ambray and on the street Aristide Briana. After that, the
"yellow vests" went along Thiers Street and returned back to the Field of Mars
(https://www.vosgesmatin.fr/edition-d-epinal/2019/10/26/direct-suivez-la-manifestation-regionale-des-gilets-jaunes)

Demonstrations of "yellow vests" also took place in Bordeaux and other cities.

On Sunday October 27, dozens of "yellow vests" blocked the barriers in the parking lot at
the hospital in Obonne to make it free. "Since public services should be free, access to
them should be the same," read the banner installed in the parking lot of Simone Weil
Hospital in Obonne-Montmorency. It's not normal when you pay to be able to visit the
patient, protesters said. Visitors were allowed free of charge. Cars passing by, greeted
by the demonstrators. The drivers smiled happily. "Thank you so much for what you are
doing, and good luck," said the female driver. To hide from surveillance cameras,
protesters opened umbrellas (

With the Alicem project, the French State is deploying biometric identity management
across the country. The intention is to make facial recognition mandatory in the medium
term, by conditioning access to the public service to identification by this method. The
generalization of the surveillance is not a new phenomenon (in France as elsewhere:
England, China ...), but it is here a sudden jump forward towards the trivialization of
the social control, by registering this surveillance even in our bodies. ---- According to
some mainstream media, France is preparing to become the first European country to use
facial recognition for its public services. This would first be optional (set up in
November) but, as part of a global project of dematerialization of public services and in
a security context increasingly oppressive, it is hard to imagine our leaders stop in if
right path. With this technology, it will be necessary to identify via facial recognition
to access tax notices, but also to the Secu, forms to register a vehicle or to simulate
retirement ... The personalized and almost constant monitoring as a way of government is
not a new phenomenon. But biometric access (fingerprints, iris, voice, face, etc.)

The French state, although pioneering in Europe, is far from isolated in this approach,
already very advanced for example in China where the social control of individuals is
already worthy of the worst dystopias. State authoritarianism has a bright future ahead of
it. It can count on the fervent support of its "  startup nation  " which sees new "
innovative  " markets to be won, at the expense of respect for our private lives and
therefore our freedoms. Without forgetting, of course, the support of GAFAM bosses [1]and
other digital multinationals, who were vowing and prophesying many years ago, the end of
the notion of privacy on the Internet - that is, in this hyper-connected capitalist
society, the end of right to a private life.

It should be remembered that all these biometric data will be stored somewhere in a server
accessible from the Internet - and therefore fallible ; what would happen in case of
intrusion ? Has the government thought about the possibility of 70 million identity theft?

We also keep in mind that the 2020 Finance Bill allows tax and customs departments to use
data published by Internet users on social networks and online sales platforms to detect
potential problems. possible cases of tax fraud. Of course, these new measures of
espionage of the population are not there to attack the billions of euros of tax evasion
of the big boss - if it was really the intention of the government, this one would not
choose a mass espionage but rather a targeted surveillance of the culprits, perfectly
identifiable. No, the target of the government here is, for example, precarious who, to
round difficult end of the month, do not declare sales online. One can legitimately
question the meaning of the priorities of the government. fight  against tax fraud one
more step to, on the one hand, intensify social control and, on the other hand, break
public services by cutting jobs. We can also fear that the algorithm that will implement
this surveillance and these job cuts be subcontracted to a multinational corporation
itself guilty of tax evasion (only Google, it is 16 billion embezzled in Bermuda in 2016) ...
The Libertarian Communist Union is involved in the Technopolis campaign denouncing the
emergence of the new surveillance society and the police of the future. To fight against a
legislative arsenal that strengthens, to preserve our chances of stopping the machine, the
Libertarian Communist Union strongly opposes the generalization of facial recognition and
other surveillance technologies of the population.

On October 31st we will be out as part of the London Antifascist Assembly (LAFA) to oppose
the far right. LAFA call out below: ---- The openly racist and divisive rhetoric of Boris
Johnson has emboldened the far right. ---- All across the world the rise of authoritarian
neo-liberal governments, ultra-nationalism and openly fascist movements are being resisted
by mass anti-fascist action on the streets - from Rojava to Catalunya, Kashmir, Greece and
Chile - anti-fascism is international. ---- Last month saw violent fascists attack pro-EU
and environmentalist demonstrators in central London. In recent weeks a vigilante group
has patrolled the Dover seafront, "hunting" migrants seeking to cross the Channel. The
deaths of 39 migrants who froze to death in the back of a lorry in Essex, forced into the
hands of traffickers, is the latest outcome of the UK state's hostile environment.

On 31st October organisations from across the far right are planning to mobilise in
central London: they are seeking to capitalise on Brexit chaos in order to spread
Islamophobic and xenophobic sentiment, and to recruit and radicalise those who feel
disenfranchised by the political mainstream. London Anti-Fascist Assembly will be there to
oppose them. This is not just about "leave" versus "remain": we are unified in our
opposition to racism, Islamophobia and fascism on our streets.

In solidarity with the global fight against fascism, London Anti-Fascist Assembly calls
for a mass mobilisation on the streets. Not one step back!

London is anti-fascist, Rojava is anti-fascist, Catalunya is anti-fascist! Anti-fascism is
international!

Meet at 7:30pm SHARP, 31st October, at the International Brigade Memorial in Lambeth.

Stay safe, stick together and look out for each other. This is a night time demonstration
and there is potential for violence from the far right especially if they don't get the no
deal brexit they want.

Due to the unpredictable nature of the current political situation and the far right's
response to it, plans may change at short notice.

Section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986, which spells out how they can tackle public
assemblies. It was a revision of the original Section 14 order which was put out on the
second day of the XR protest, which restricted assembly to the pedestrian area of
Trafalgar Square. Despite this, XR protestors had spread out to the roads encircling the
Square and set up camps on Pall Mall/St James Park, and Whitehall and other areas. The
police have used salami tactics to close XR concentrations, starting with the pre-emptive
raid on an XR occupied warehouse, where equipment including wheelchairs were confiscated
(stolen) and nine XR members were arrested on dubious charges, and then continuing against
three bridges occupied by XR, and then moving on to evictions at Whitehall and St James
Park. In the process the cops have used increasingly heavy-handed tactics, depriving
disabled protestors of their white sticks, power packs and wheelchairs. They have also
used "pain and compliance" methods, basically physical assault, against some totally
"non-violent" demonstrators.

Meanwhile the Labour Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has proved to be at the very least
equivocal about the Met repression of XR protestors. He said he was seeking "further
information" about the decision to shut down XR whilst blaming them for putting "undue
pressure on already overstretched police officers". In the end he questioned the Met
decision to use Section 14. It is interesting that XR was closed down shortly after the
protests in the City where banners were unfurled stating "Climate Struggle = Class
Struggle". The decisions to move against XR don't just involve the leadership of the Met,
they involve decisions at the highest levels of the State, including the Boris Johnson
government.

Throughout all of this, XR have tried to make out that we should respect the police and
government. Experience has shown the falseness of this argument, and that the strategy of
"non-violence" is bankrupt. Perhaps the behaviour of the police has opened many eyes about
their true nature as an instrument of repression, and that the practical experience of
many XR protestors may lead to an increasing radicalisation of the XR grassroots and move
it to break with its leadership. This leadership is closely associated with "green"
capitalists as we have illustrated in a major article on Extinction Rebellion in our
magazine Virus.

The Canning Town action by a minority of XR activists shows that actions should be aimed
at big business and the rich rather than at public transport in a working class area of
London. It was the targeting of the City which triggered the use of Section 14. Actions
that seek to blame everyone equally for the climate crisis are a dead end, and fail to
tackle the perpetrator of climate change, capitalism itself. When the interests of big
business are imperilled, the State intervenes to crush any threat. It should be obvious
that the State will resort to such methods again if there is serious unrest on the streets
of Britain, whether they be climate actions that recognise the real enemy of capitalism,
or protests against austerity measures. The examples of Chile, Ecuador, Iraq and Lebanon
when demonstrators were faced with the barbaric might of the State should make us realise
that this could happen in Britain too.

NO EXTRACTION NEVER AND NEVER ---- FREE SEA, THE FOREST, THE MOUNTAINS ---- On the
afternoon of Thursday, October 24,  an anarchist group called "Poor Horse", Israeli
comrades and the "anarchist anti-mining initiative"  outside the Byzantine Hotel in
downtown Patras against hydrocarbons. ---- There,  on the 2nd day of October 23-24, the
3rd Meeting of the Beneficiaries of the European HarmoNIA project on the hydrocarbon
extraction in the Adriatic and Ionian Sea  and the pollution management that they will
bring. Among the various European states and universities involved, the main speakers were
HELLENIC PETROLEUM SA. (ELPE), the Hellenic Hydrocarbons Management Company, the Hellenic
Center for Marine Research, representatives of Technical Chambers and Public Services
involved with the environment.

Nowadays, the gigantic design of the Greek state for plundering the natural environment
and society in order to serve the interests of local and global political and economic
elites, and the energy needs of the bankrupt state-capitalist socialist way of life
catastrophic consequences to natural ecosystems and the possibility of decent living for
humans in their places.

The energy industry and the transformation of a place into a hydrocarbon field only
promise to contaminate and contaminate land, water and air, exacerbate social and class
inequalities, and endanger societies due to transnational war conflicts.

This treaty requires total social awakening, overcoming assignment, mediation and
inactivity, the power of social and class struggles, the creation of broad,
self-organized, anti-institutional resistance fronts and the creation of embankments
wherever and capitalist aggression.

 From Acheloos, Agrafa and Skouries to Crete, Patraikos and Ionian... and where the
state-capitalist aggression is manifested elsewhere...

SOLIDARITY TO EFFORTS AGAINST NATURE AND SOCIOLOGY FROM STATE AND CAPITAL

A GAME FOR EARTH AND FREEDOM!
