Δελτίο τύπου: Η ΑΝΤΑΡΣΥΑ ΗΒ θα συμμετάσχει στην καμπάνια LEXIT.

H ANTAΡΣΥΑ Ηνωμένου Βασιλείου αποφάσισε την πλήρη στήριξη και συμμετοχή στην καμπάνια LEXIT (την καμπάνια αριστερής εξόδου απο την ΕΕ) την οποία θεωρεί απαραίτητο εργαλείο για την ήττα των κυβερνητικών πολιτικών λιτότητας στο ΗΒ και την υπόλοιπη Ευρώπη.

Ενώ εξακολουθούμε να βιώνουμε τις συνέπειες της παγκόσμιας οικονομικής κρίσης και ενώ έχουμε διασώσει τα χρηματοπιστωτικά ιδρύματα που την προκάλεσαν, συνεχίζουμε να πληρώνουμε ώστε να ανακτήσουν τα κέρδη τους. Η κρίση και οι συνέπειες της συνεχίζουν να πληρώνονται απο τους εργαζομένους, τους νέους, τους φτωχούς και τους ανέργους. Αυτή είναι η «συλλογική» απάντηση στην κρίση απο όλες τις κυβερνήσεις της ΕΕ (συμπεριλαμβανόμενης και της Βρετανικής).

Σήμερα περισσότερο απο ποτέ, καθίσταται σαφές οτι η ΕΕ πάντα αντιπροσώπευε αυτά τα συμφέροντα, ενώ όποια «πλεονεκτήματα» δεν ήταν παρα αποτέλεσμα της διακρατικής «ευθυγράμμισης». Η ΕΕ οδηγεί σε παρατεταμένη λιτότητα και αυταρχική καταστολή ενώ στερείται δημοκρατικών λειτουργιών και θεσμοθετεί το ρατσισμό και την καταστολή. Καταδικάζει διάφορες κοινωνικές ομάδες στη φτώχεια καταστρέφοντας τον δημόσιο πλούτο και τις δημόσιες υπηρεσίες.

Η επίθεση στα δικαιώματα των λαών πραγματοποιείται απο τις κυβερνήσεις και ενορχηστρώνεται απο την ΕΕ. Στη Βρετανία οι κυρίαρχες δυνάμεις του κεφαλαίου και η πλειοψηφία των υπαλλήλων τους, θέλουν να παραμείνουν στην ΕΕ.

Βλέπουμε ωστόσο σημάδια αισιοδοξίας στους λαικούς αγώνες και την αλληλεγγύη. Η Ευρώπη κλονίζεται απο την επανεμφάνιση αγώνων όπως οι τεράστιες εργατικές διαδηλώσεις στη Γαλλία ή οι μεγαλειώδεις κινητοποιήσεις στη Βρετανία ενάντια στη λιτότητα και την κυβέρνηση του Κάμερον. Τα παραδοσιακά πολιτικά κόμματα αδυνατούν να εκφράσουν τη λαική οργή. Στην προσπαθειά τους να εκτρέψουν την ευθύνη για τη λιτότητα, παρέχουν πρόσφορο έδαφος για ρατσιστικές και φασιστικές εκφράσεις.

Οι εργαζόμενοι και οι νεολαίοι πρέπει να στηρίξουν την καμπάνια με τον αγώνα τους ενάντια στις πολιτικές της ΕΕ της λιτότητας και του ρατσισμού και την ολοκληρωτική καταστροφή των δημόσιων υπηρεσιών και να συνεχίσουν με καλύτερους όρους τη μάχη ενάντια στη συντηρητική κυβέρνηση, μέχρι τη διάλυση της ΕΕ. H ANTAΡΣΥΑ Ηνωμένου Βασιλείου στηρίζει την καμπάνια ως μέρος του διεθνιστικού καθήκοντος προωθήσης της ενότητας των αγώνων ενάντια στο Ευρωπαικό κεφάλαιο.

Press release: ANTARSYA UK will participate in the LEXIT Campaign

ANTARSYA UK has decided to fully back and participate in the LEXIT campaign – the Left Leave Campaign. ANTARSYA UK considers LEXIT as a necessary weapon for the defeat of the government policies of austerity in the UK and throughout Europe.

We are still experiencing the effects of the global economic crisis but after having bailed out the financial institutions, which triggered the crisis, we still pay for them to recover their failing profits. This crisis and its outcomes are still paid by the workers, the youth, the poor and the unemployed. This is the “collective” response to this crisis by all the EU governments (the UK included). Today, more than ever, it is becoming clear that the EU has always represented these same interests with any apparent “benefits” only as a result of transnational “alignment”. The EU has been regressing into prolonged austerity and authoritarian repression while it institutionalized racism and discrimination, lacking democratic functions. It is condemning various social groups to poverty, destroying public wealth and services.

The attack on the peoples’ rights is carried out by governments and coordinated by the EU. In Britain the dominant forces of capital and the majority of their public servants want to stay in the EU.

We can yet see signs of optimism in the popular struggle and solidarity. Europe is shaken by the reappearance of fighting people, such as the huge workers’ demonstrations in France or the majestic marches in Britain against austerity and the Cameron government. The traditional political parties are failing to reflect and express the popular anger. In their efforts to deflect the blame and responsibility for austerity they are also providing the breeding ground for racist and fascist expressions.

The working people and the young must “brand” the Left Leave the EU campaign with their struggle against the EU policies of austerity, racism and wholesale destruction of public services and continue on better terms the battle against the conservative government, until the dissolution of the EU. ANTARSYA UK backs the LEXIT campaign as part of the internationalist duty to foster the unity of the people fighting against the EuroCapital.

Harsh violence and bloodshed validates the EU-Turkey deal and the Syriza-Anel law passed by the Hellenic Parliament regarding refugees.

Harsh violence and bloodshed validate the EU-Turkey deal and the Syriza-Anel law passed by the Hellenic Parliament regarding refugees.

On last Friday (01/04/2016), 800 refugees detained at Chios’ Hotspot (VIAL) broke down the fence wires, heading towards the port in search of a way to escape. At the same time, 5 platoon police forces were transferred to the island. Further to that, the ferry, changing its routine route, was re-directed and moored 40 km away from the port.

On Saturday (02/04/2016), 78 refugees selected from the remaining population within VIAL were violently carried over the town handcuffed in order to be deported on Monday morning. Refugees were transferred with riot police crates to Tampakika of Chios, whilst nine people in solidarity heading towards VIAL were arrested by the police!

Refugees who escaped from VIAL on Sunday remain in the port and make suicide threats in case of their detention or return to Turkey. Political and social formations as well as individuals insist in standing by their side, defending their democratic rights and safeguarding the territory from events of police and racist violence.

Early on Monday, 4 hours before the announced schedule, 66 refugees from Tampakika were carried over a boat with a Frontex escort and sent back to Turkey. In the same vein, further 136 refugees got deported from Lesvos.

Greek government sends the message in every direction that it will unswervingly implement this agreement, using harsh violent against refugees, people in solidarity and every citizen who will attempt to obstruct their way.

The events of the last days in Chios foreground the real character of this agreement and the law passed on Friday. These events foreshadow what will happen in Greece from now on.

We denounce the Greek government and the horrendous policy of refugees’ deportations.

We call working people and youth to stand by refugees by all means and safeguard the rights and freedoms of the country.

By sending back refugees to reactionary, authoritative regimes and dictatorships or countries such as Turkey where political and democratic rights of its own people have been disdained, where the undeclared war against Kurdish people has been raging, the Greek government becomes an accomplice in the crimes committed.

STOP DEPORTATIONS NOW!
