Expropriation of supermarket,Thessaloniki – Greece


In recent years, we have seen each day increasingly dominated by extreme poverty and exploitation. Through our inability to meet our needs, it becomes an obvious conclusion: that our life is not determined by us but by others on the basis of market conditions and profit for the bosses, local and foreign. In recent years, we have seen that the system has unleashed an all-out assault to protect its interests. The police have become the military occupation of cities. Fear and terror, the main media propaganda. Under a regime of permanent threat, the bosses invite us to compromise and apathy or manufactured decisions or more insidious methods that give the illusion of choice, such as the referendum.
Beyond the dilemmas of power, to overcome inertia and fear.
To not delegate the solution of our problems to those who created them.
The oppressed must take our lives in our hands.
Faced with the dilemma: Memorandum of lenders or Memorandum of SYRIZA respond with self-organization and rupture, from both foreign and local bosses and their armies.

Against the legality of the exploiters that keeps us slaves, to respond with direct action of the oppressed and collective self-organization of life and struggle.
Refusal of obedience to the dictates of the bosses
Refusal of payments (tickets, accounts, bank debt, taxes)
Creation of collective structures to cover our needs (squats, collective kitchens)
Solidarity between the oppressed building communities
Get back from the bosses everything we produced with sweat and blood
Expropriation of accumulated wealth
Reinforcement of our communities to organize self-defense and attack our oppressors
