VICE – Escape From Greece

As one of the gateways to mainland Europe, Greece may be home to thousands of immigrants — but at the moment, it’s not a particularly happy one. Many spend their days trying to escape the xenophobia and erratic immigration policies that characterise Greece at a time of deep financial crisis. More often than not, the migrants look to the West — to countries like the UK or Germany — where they feel they will be able to lead richer, happier lives.

However, even if certain sections of Greek society would rather rid their country of immigrants, EU law means that’s easier said than done. What do you do when you’re trapped in a country that doesn’t want you?

VICE discovered that, for some, the latest route to a better life was on foot — on an increasingly well-worn path from Greece into Macedonia, Serbia and on into Hungary.

Καταδικαζεις τη βια, ρε?

Να παει μια Σωτη, ενας Παγκαλος, ενας Κουβελης, καποιος ρε παιδια να εξηγησει στους Mik’Maq οτι ο Καναδας ειναι δημοκρατια και η βια καταδικαστεα απ’ οπου και αν προερχεται. Να παει ρε παιδια, γιατι δεν μας αρκουν οι καταδικες της βιας απο τους βορειοαμερικανους white people, χρειαζεται και λιγο να βγει να καταδικασει η Σωτη απο την Ελλαδαρα.

Γιατι οι Mik’Maq δεν εχουν παρει πρεφα (ειναι τα 500 χρονια αποικιοκρατιας, σκλαβιας και εξανδραποδισμου βλεπεις) οτι η βια ειναι καταδικαστεα απ’ οπου και αν προερχεται, εκτος βεβαια απο την νομιμη βια (του κρατους των white people) και οτι ζουν σε δημοκρατικο καθεστως (στο κρατος των white people) και οτι οι επενδυσεις ειναι καλες για την οικονομια (την οικονομια των white people στη Bay Street). Ειναι προσκολλημενοι σε αλλες εποχες (τοτε που ηταν κυριοι της γης τους, πριν σκασουνε μυτη τα γκανια των white people).

Φταιει φυσικα και το ΠΑΜΕ, οι κουκουλοφοροι, η ΑΝΤΑΡΣΥΑ και οι ακραιες συνιστωσες του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ του New Brunswick που ενθαρρυνει τα συνδρομα της μεταπολιτευσης στο Elsipogtog First Nation, και που ενοχοποιουν την υγιη επιχειρηματικοτητα. Και βεβαια, οι Mik’maq ειναι συνυπευθυνοι για την παγκοσμια οικονομικη κριση, αφου ολοι μαζι τα φαγαμε.

Πες και συ τιποτα ρε Πασχο.

(Το οτι προκειται για Καναδικο κεφαλαιο που δραστηριοποιειται σε  resource extraction να μην φερει συνειρμους: φυσικα και δεν υπαρχει καμια σχεση με Σκουριες. Αλλο ιθαγενεις Mik’Maq, αλλο ιθαγενεις Χαλκιδικιωτες, αλλο fracking, αλλο εξορυξη χρυσου. )

Mik’maq Resist! 6 RCMP Cars Torched, Fracking Equipment Confiscated

815849224

from Earth First! News

In retaliation against a violent police raid this morning on a peaceful First Nations blockade, Mik’maq warriors and supporters have fought back.

The RCMP appear to have arrested journalist Miles Howe, who has been reporting on the Elsipogtog struggle against the illegal gas grab on indigenous lands. More than 200 RCMP are participating in the raid, including snipers in fatigues. Ambulances have been prevented from treating protestors wounded by pepper spray, plastic bullets, and general brutality.

As of the time of writing this, six RCMP vehicles have been torched, and melees of stones have been hurled in response to tear gas, plastic bullets, and pepper spray from the RCMP. Mik’maq allies have also confiscated fracking equipment in continued efforts to maintain the blockade against the gas company.

Blockades are reportedly springing up elsewhere throughout Mik’maq territory, as news has spread of police brutality and unnecessary use of force against peaceful protestors, including elders and children. Idle No More’s twitter account has called on all the Sacred Fires of the World, and solidarity demos in DC, NYC, Vancouver, BC, and Winnipeg have already been announced.

The Mik’maq Blockade has cost the gas company an estimated $50,000 per day, and has been ongoing for two weeks. Today’s crack down is a direct betrayal of a peace process ongoing between the Elsipogtog and the New Brunswick premier, and a violation of the rights of Indigenous Peoples as according to the UN. The government of Canada has instigated a major diplomatic incident, and global solidarity is coming in from countries around the world.

The whole world is watching!
