SOLIDARITY GATHERING FOR THE NO TAV MOVEMENT
SOLIDARITY TO THE NO TAV MOVEMENT (ITALY-SWITZERLAND-FRANCE)
WHETHER HERE, OR THERE, OPPRESSION IS THE SAME
Just like in Halkidiki, where the residents fight in order for their land not to be destroyed by the modern gold-diggers and the state, with a constant crescendo of oppression, has put three hundred fighters in a state of persecution.
Just like in Keratea, where the local community resisted the transformation of an area -with a presence of ancient objects- into a landfill, putting a stop to the attack of capital, which saw in the managing of garbage a golden opportunity for profit at the expense of the natural environment and the lives of the residents.
Just like in Oropos, where the residents showed the way we ought to deal with company road blocks protected by cops, called tolls.
Thus, a bit more west in Italy, Switzerland and France a local movement is resisting for years now the destruction of the land with the construction of a high speed rail train line. It is the NO TAV movement which has to deal with the same capitalist development as here, the same persecutions as here, the same oppression, but answers in the same way: self-organization, protests in streets and mountains, direct action, sabotage.
All bosses have a common line: to flatten communities and destroy the land with only aim the magnification of their economic profit, co-adjutant by state ministries, cops, judges and prosecutors. Lets not navel-gaze. The struggle of each of us is a part of the whole struggle for the subversion of state and capitalist brutality, it is the struggle for land and freedom.
WHETHER HERE, OR THERE, OUR WEAPON IS SOLIDARITY
