Workers! Washington DC. March 16, 2013 three activist from Greek Antifa, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) along with co-sponsors Positive Force, Chesapeake Earth First!, Anarchist Alliance DC Network (AADC) joined together and took the streets of Washington DC to show our support for the Greek working class. The group's first stop was the Greek embassy, where we delivered a letter with our demands. We then marched to the German embassy, followed by a stop at the headquarters of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Later we gathered for a conference with special guests: members of the Greek antifascist movement, known as Antifa: Sofia Papagiannaki, Thanasis Xirotsopanos, Vangelis Nanos, and Pavlos, they delivered a very educational presentation about their involvement in organizing with workers in their home country, the radical/anarchist message about the economic crisis in Greece, the worker takeover of the VioMe factory in Thessaloniki, and resistance to the rise of a neo-fascist Right.

We were glad to have Alisa of the I.W.W. Star Tickets Workers Union, from Grand Rapids, MI. After a few years of organizing, they've just recently gone public and won an NLRB election. We talked via Skype with Northeast Greece, workers at Vio.Me (http://www.viome.org/) how have taken over their building materials factory, restarting production without bosses. They join a rising tide of workers control initiatives across the globe, opening the door to another world. We want to thank our allies for coming, caring, and organizing. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experiences to make this great and necessary event happen! Workers everywhere need one another to improve their conditions. AADC brought the four groups together for this project because we strongly believe that our collectives, groups and organizers need to form coalitions and remember our common goal: to show the system that the problem of one is the problem of all! We showed the bosses, cops, and politicians that we are watching, and we showed the workers that we have their backs! Please check this related l
