6th of December – International Day against State
6 December 2008 , 15 years old Alexis Grigoropoulos is shot point
blank by cops in the neighborhood of Exarchia in Athens. Alexis
falls from the bullet of state murderers and a hurricane of rage
rises. This was no accident; it was a targeted murder in the heart
of a neighborhood that is, as much historically as in the present,
a hub for the oppressed to organize themselves into the
resistance movement. The message was clear, to terrorise the
resistance, to assert state totalitarian control, to stifle the
brewing insurrection against a decrepit system of exploitation and
oppression. The story of Alexis is the story of thousands of
fighters shot, tortured and dissappeared by the armed guards of
the state around the world.
In the hours, days and weeks that followed the murder of Alexis
myriads of people, who saw in the killing of Alexis their own
sufferings in this system, took to the streets around the world.
The wave of solidarity broke the isolation and alienation of the
oppressed and awakened once again the global vision for a world
without exploitation from authority. This history, our history is
not a collection of dead symbols. It is our storming ground for
the ongoing struggle against the slavery of humanity by capitalist
exploiters, their state aparatus and their armies.
States are founded on terrorism and violence.
