Greece: Members of Greek Communist Party raid squatted building housing refugees in Mytilene

11.11.15: Approximately 20 members of the KKE (Greek Communist Party) wearing helmets and armed with metal bats have raided a former labor hire center in Mytilene that had been occupied by anti-authoritarians and refugees. The center had been operating as a self-managed space for refugees. The space was being entirely run by the refugees and had been a space to provide support for refugees and immigrants as well as organize demonstrations and solidarity actions.

The KKE are claiming ‘ownership’ of the building and are alleging that ‘severe damage’ has been caused by the occupation. The KKE are also claiming that refugees are still welcome to stay at the building however all the refugees fled during the violent raid and the building is now being guarded by KKE members. According to several sources the building was in fact originally owned by OAED (Greek Manpower Employment Organization), a labor hire company.


For the real class solidarity with the “refugee” and “immigrant” proletarians!

Internacionální proletáři: For the real class solidarity with the “refugee” and “immigrant” proletarians!

Comrades, proletarians of Europe, once again you are being told that your living standards or even your very lives are under the threat from some “aliens”. You are being blackmailed with the further cuts of “social services” and with losing your jobs… as if it wasn't already the program of the ruling class! You are threatened by spread of “foreign religion” and “foreign culture” and pushed to defend “your own” country, culture, faith… etc… as if it meant anything else then defending interests of local faction of bourgeoisie! As if it served anything else, then keeping capitalist law and order and strengthening the dominant ideology, that makes us accepting our own exploitation!


Focus on European Refugee Crisis

The ongoing European Migrant Crisis involves people from Africa, the Balkans, and the Middle East, coming to countries in Europe.

The European migrant crisis or European refugee crisis arose through the rising number of refugees and migrants coming to the European Union, across the Mediterranean Sea or Southeast Europe, and applying for asylum. They come from areas such as the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Yemen), Africa (Eritrea, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, Gambia), the Western Balkans (Kosovo, Albania, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia) and other parts of Asia (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh). According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, as of early September 2015, 71% of the Mediterranean Sea arrivals are refugees coming from Syria, Afghanistan and Eritrea. ~ Wikipedia
