“Battle or Death. Bloody struggle or non-existence. So inexorably comes the question “ – George Sand
As anarchists, communists, we struggle daily and by all means against the degradation of labor into a commodity, of the worker into an object, against the patriarchal devaluation of femininities and LGBTQ+ subjects. We fight, in other words, against every existing capitalist productive and social relation. This struggle confronting the bourgeoisie and the state is the necessary condition for the abolition of classes and for our liberation. The movements and means we use are always judged in the necessity of the class struggle.
Necessary are the means that rally the working class and the revolutionary proletariat, that fill their hearts with irreconcilable hostility to oppression, that intensify their contempt for bourgeois legitimacy, morality and their democratic mouthpieces, and that remind us of the consciousness of our historical mission.
Thus there are social and political developments and events that mark moments in the class struggle when we must escalate the intensity of our struggle. It is at these moments that revolutionary vigilantism is the only and immediate answer to express and defend the interests of the oppressed class.
One of these crucial events is the case of the (child) rapist and New Democracy appointee Dimitris Lignadis. Dimitris Lignadis is an integral link in the chain of the Greek bourgeoisie as well as a personal friend of New Democracy executives and ministers. At the starting point of the case, government spokesman Christos Tarantilis, tried to cover up for Dimitris Lignadis by stating that he resigned for personal reasons, while Lina Mendoni concealed their personal relationship, claiming that she was deceived by Dimitris Lignadis’ ‘deep hypocrisy’. Moreover, during the hearing of the case it became apparent that, unlike other cases of government scandals, he is not just a “front man” or “scapegoat” of the government to wash the political system, but a deeply rooted and organic part of the bourgeoisie and the New Democracy. A fact that is moreover obvious both from the release from prison and from the public moral support of Dimitris Lignadis in the recent articles of Kathimerini. At the same time the anarchist political prisoner Yannis Michaelides who is on hunger strike since 23/5 demanding his release is being exterminated by the judiciary and the government of the N.S. For all these reasons we chose to express our anger against the Ministry of Culture. Thus, after the end of the demonstration in defence of Exarcheia we attacked with 8 Molotov cocktails the grounds of the ministry on Zaimi street, delivering two of their official cars to the flames.
