SOLIDARITY WITH THE REFUGEES AT THE GREEK-TURKISH BORDERS At a time when fascist pogroms are being set up all over the island of Lesvos, where civilians acting as cops under the auspices and guidance of local authorities, block and eventually prevent migrants from settling in Moria, a small boat with 40 migrants in the port of Thermi is confronted by a group of local citizens who prevented its disembarkation, at the same time fascist blocks are organized in the town of Mytilene and the temporary residence structure in Sykamnia is burnt down. At the same time, NGO sea-rescue boats , as well as the lives of solidarity people, are being threatened with arson, activist photographers are being chased and beaten, and a solidarity clothing structure for migrants in Chios burnt down.Governmental and para-state mechanisms rise "the weapon of fascism" and lead to the murder of 2 immigrants at the blood-bound border. The murders are are concealed by the "loyal" cooperation of the media. Right-wing and fascist elements find the opportunity to get out of their holes. Starting from Evros and then making their appearance in Lesvos, five neo-Nazis from Germany, pretending to be reporters, attempted to film snapshots of the immigrants, receiving eventually an immediate antifascist response that led to their expulsion. The mosaic of this fascist delirium from locals and politicians is fulfilled with the entrapment of thousands of migrants in the grey zone of the Evros borders, who, playing the role of leverage, are being smashed by greek police and army. On one side of the border the Turkish government, after the killing of 33 turkish soldiers and the russian air-force pressure rising constantly in the province of Idlib, in an act of putting pressure upon EU countries promises free access to Europe to thousands of refugees who on the other side of the fence have to deal with the fully-armored Greek army with license to kill, special police forces from Athens and the local self-proclaimed border guards, i.e. fascists with hunting weapons.The current entrapment of immigrants at the greek/turkish border in the attempt to cross the border, was portrayed by the Greek state, the EU and the broader European fascist scourge as an “invasion” attempt, the response to which was through “military mobilisation” terms. The greek army expanded its activity throughout the land border, local fascists formed armed militia against immigrants, multimillionaire shipowners “sponsored” the murderers in uniforms with food supplies, the media applied extreme control over the flow of the news, while the vast majority of the greek society imprecate the immigrants behind the tv-screens. In other words, the greek society from top to bottom carried out a mobilization against an imaginary war waged over the bodies of immigrants, bodies that are confronted as hostile (therefore just to kill), bodies completely despoiled of any value in living. The EU, in full consent with the death-politics of the greek state, de facto supports the practices of the greek murderers, by promising: material support, grand financial aid and surveillance technologies for the borders, therefore, supporting ethically or, congratulating the greek state as expressed through the words of the EU commission president, von der Leyen, guaranteeing political coverage. After all, the greek borders are simultaneously the borders of the “Europe Fortress” and the symbolic limit behind which the European fascism is fortified. For that reason, greek murderers are backed up by European murderers (Frontex) and altogether march hand in hand with austrian and german neo-nazis, standing in “solidarity” with the greek practices and collaborating in their crimes. In their hands lies the blood of murdered immigrants. What is presented as “crisis” and “invasion” is in fact created by the states of Germany, Turkey and Europe in the first place, as through war and economic exploitation these state displace large numbers of people which are forced to immigrate. At the same time they try to gain from the situation, loyal to their modus of domination and capitalist logic. EU is one of the largest exporters of weapons, with Germany being a leading figure in the exports, and heavily profits from wars outside the European borders. The Turkish government, one of the largest client of EU in the arms trade, is using the immigrants on the borders as a pressure lever, in order to be able to attack northern Syria. In a similar situation some years ago, Europe and Turkey “opened their borders” and absorbed a number of immigrants as cheap labor. In the current context no more labor is needed for the European states and therefore now the immigrants are repelled and killed on the “European border”. States and capitals clash, negotiate and compromise in terms of their profits and authority, and at the same time people are repressed, tortured and killed.This is why the only solution to the problem is to overthrow the capitalist logic of profit and statist logic of domination which generate all the above. This is why the borders should not be opened but abolished, this is why fortress Europe should be fought against and not reformed. In an increasingly fascist society, where the state launches its journalistic parrots in a constant game of inhumanity and fascist propaganda, our position is with the exploited of the society. We stand against any national rhetoric which create borders, excludes and represses. We create "barricades" to racist behaviors, we intervene in everyday racist and fascist incidents, and we stand in solidarity with immigrants. We respond with militant antifascism, we propose a society of equality and freedom.
