On Saturday, June 5, dozens of comrades recaptured the Rosa Nera, which was evacuated on September 5, 2021, at a time of intensifying state repressive attacks on anarchist struggle structures, with the evacuations of Rosa Nera and Terra Incogn the two police raids on the occupation of Libertatia and the arrests of comrades. After the recapture and while efforts are being made to repair the damage caused by the police forces during the evacuation operation, there have been two attempts to cut off electricity and water as well as a lawsuit has been filed against the militants by Belvedere, which claims the hill and the building. the operation of the hotel.
The recapture of Rosa Nera, an area that for more than 16 years has been a point of reference for both the anti-authoritarian movement and the wider social struggles in the city of Chania, is a very important bulwark in the overall repression campaign against occupied and self-organized venues. . Also the mass demonstrations and the gathering of hundreds of people to defend the occupation but also against the privatization and commercialization of Kastelli hill, practically canceling the plans of the government, the Belvedere company and the Technical University of Crete, serve as a militant example. a living message of solidarity that demonstrates that the enemy is not invulnerable.
It has become apparent in the most obvious way that the management of the pandemic by the state was not intended to meet the needs of the vast majority of society, but to further promote the anti-social agenda of political and economic bosses, to accelerate restructuring policies, to intensify conditions of exploitation and oppression and the imposition of terror through the intensification of state repression in order to prevent any latent social explosion. From the repressive methods of the state, the educational restructuring, which includes the introduction of police forces in the schools, the passing of the anti-labor bill in combination with the dozens of murders of workers in the scams of wage slavery, the escalation of gender-based violence, the regime exempts to detainees,
Occupations are living structures of social and class struggle, points of resistance to state and capitalist aggression, living spaces based on the principles of solidarity, mutual aid and communal ownership are an integral part of the struggle for social and class emancipation. And for this very reason, in the context of the “precautionary counter-insurgency”, they are primarily targeted by repression, in order to prevent the diffusion and connection of the anarchist struggle with the growing rage of the Plebian strata, especially in a period of total system attack.
From Athens and Thessaloniki to Chania, we stand in solidarity with the comrades who took over Rosa Nera, the squatting, the self-organized arenas of struggle and the social and class resistance. In the face of state aggression and repression, we are taking battle positions for the relentless defense of our structures and resistances that will continue to be in the crosshairs of the state and capital in the coming period. With our weapon of solidarity, we continue the struggle for the organization of social and class counterattack, for the creation of a world of equality and freedom.
