“The one who shot was not alone
he had other unknown executioners with him
He had the virtuous with him
He had the honest with him
He had the moral with him
He had the righteous with him
He had the peaceful with him”
On Saturday at midday, January 17th, 2015, a demo was carried out in the Athens district of Ano Petralona, two years since the racist assassination of Shehzad Luqman, a migrant worker from Pakistan who was stabbed to death by two Golden Dawn thugs on Trion Ierarchon Street, while he was heading to his daily work. Around 400 people marched with strong slogans, starting from Merkouri Square, moving through the narrow streets of Ano Petralona and Thissio, to make a short stop at the assassination spot, before returning to the same square.
Comrades from the area met once again on the streets, joining the call for a mobilisation with a distinct bloc at the tail end of the demonstration. As anarchist individuals, we might come from different starting points, nevertheless we share a common conviction: We have no illusions of democracy, nor do we wait for any bourgeois justice or electoral system to solve the problems of the oppressed. The institutions of the States and Capital are the main perpetrators responsible for the murders en mass of migrants and refugees at the borders of the continents and oceans; for the State and para-State pogroms and deportations, for the concentration camps, for spreading xenophobia and racism, for the production and reproduction of nationalisms, and finally for the complete fascistisation of our neighborhoods and societies.
For struggle in memory of Shehzad Luqman and every migrant fallen into the hands of Nazis (with or without uniform) means for us a struggle against borders and nations. A daily international and insurrectionist struggle, until we make this muthafucka ungovernable.
DEMOCRACY IS THE MIDWIFE OF FASCISM.
THE ONLY JUSTICE IS THE ARMS OF THE PEOPLE.
