…for a faggot antifascism!

June 2011. The squares are crowded. The people? The people left their couches and took to the streets. Debate. Fermentation. Direct democracy. The people got to acquaint themselves with the real, human face of anarchy rather than with that portrayed in the 8 o’clock news. Those days were a rupture. From there onwards we would …

Defects and Beauty of Democracy

It’s well-known that the left-wing SYRIZA won the recent greek elections and managed to form a government with the far-right Independent Greeks (ANEL), a collaboration whose first traces were visible even in the previous elections of 2012.

High Competition (mail aus Athen, vol.4)

During the last 4-5 years, the whole political spectrum in Greece is moving right-wing.

The Whole Damn Bakery

Since we chose to talk about leftist anti-capitalism and fascism, we would like to focus on a certain empirical example of how the two of them can co-relate in contemporary Greek reality. SYRIZA, our brand-new left government, or at least many of its members, promote themselves and the party as anti-racist, as well as anti-capitalist. …

Myths and Maths (statement for Roma hunting and the 2 executions, for FSK Hamburg # 02)

Die griechische „Erfolgsgeschichte“ (mail aus Athen, vol. 3)

From 2006 onwards the greek people observes happily, one after the other, the various demands of the right-wing or neonazi agenda being satisfied.

Etwa zu diesem Zeitpunkt mussten wir aber bedauerlicherweise merken, dass uns die Perseveranz auszugehen drohte, und so …

Widerstand und „Widerstand“ in Griechenland heute

Deutschland demonstriert zurzeit mit Post-Wiedervereinigungsstärke, wer in Europa das Sagen hat und wie die klimatische Selektion in gute und böse Länder vonstatten zu gehen hat (faule Südländer, fleißige Nordländer).

Selbstverständlich sollte es sein, …
