The Days of Our Enslavement are Ending!

INTERNATIONAL CALL-OUT FROM GREECE
INTERNATIONAL CALL-OUT FROM GREECE for all people in Turkey and everybody in the world fighting against contemporary Totalitarianism:
The mass revolts throughout the world show clearly that human beings begin at last to resist the order of those who command without asking us, the orders of those who think that under their thrones there are willing idiots for serving their interests, loyal subjects who bow their head to the exploitation, the oppression, the inequality and the misery they experience every day.
We are not slaves to any government, to any ruling class, to any international organization. We are not slaves to any system of government or mode of production that turns the rich into very rich and the poor into destitute. We do not consent to the sell-out of our lives and our struggles, but above all, we do not consent to the sell-out of our dignity. Enough with the attack waged against society, enough with the blackmails in work places, enough with the illusion and the fake promises for a supposedly better quality of life, enough with those getting rich on our expense and with our consumerist fake desires.
Global capitalism killed the illusion of Representative Democracy,
now its time for us to kill Global Capitalism!
For too long we locked ourselves to our houses doing patiently the same routes every day, forgetting the person next to us, ignoring our neighbor, forgetting that he is like us no matter where he comes from and that only with him we can change this world. Only all of us together we can change the world. Now however we are out of our houses and this took place not only in Greece. From Cairo and Tunis to London, from Istanbul and Ankara to Madrid and Lisbon, Paris and Mexico, from New York and Oakland to Bahrain and Stockholm, from Libya and Indonesia, to Chile and Venezuela, from Japan, Haiti, India and Tibet, New Guinea and Argentina, Russia and South Africa,… everywhere, in all the world, human beings who experience exploitation and oppression get out of their houses and revolt, because they realized that locked inside them there were eventually imprisoned in their small, insignificant, individual prisons. Only that the modern cages, the modern prisons do not have handrails and prison guards, but plasma TV and newscasters that inspect and impose fear and lies, cops and cctvs that inspect your every step. But the society of the oppressed has overcome these modern prison guards.
Let the journalists in Television, in the fancy magazines and in the mainstream newspapers, the puppets of the economic interests of the big businesses of mass-stupidity and all the other Mass Media of Domestication, let all of them know that their days of affluence are slowly coming to an end because their propaganda, their lies and their slander are now obvious to everyone.
As for the politicians, the corrupted servants of the capitalist market, and all the local guards of global economic interests, we have one thing to say to you: You gentlemen you are through, you are disgraced, you are sold-out. You have no effect on us anymore. Maybe you still exist for your bosses, but from what we hear you have not much use for them either.
Now it is OUR time to be!
And we will be not as ‘peaceful, law-abiding and loyal citizens’, not as mesmerized faithful to the commands of Power, not even as ‘citizens’ for, in the usual manner of the oppressors, you misrepresented the term ‘citizen’ and you made it synonymous to apathy, submission, egoism, and individualism.
We only exist as HUMANS, as collective individuals, as members of a society who almost forgot what it means to communicate with each other. We exist as those who want to take life into their own hands and to decide themselves for their fate, away from parties and obsolete ideological organizations, away from nationalisms and fascist fanaticisms, away from every type of dogmatism and tyrannical plans that stink of death. We only exist from now on as REVOLTED people who do not need professional politicians, nor the megalomaniac and greedy businessmen who suck our blood dry in their luxurious houses. We only exist, that is, only as COMMUNITIES of free people, who want to self-governed and to administer our world in common and we know that we can do it based on three basic values:
MUTUAL AID, SELF-ORGANIZATION and ANTI-HIERARCHY
Solidarity for all people in Turkey
and everywhere in the world fighting against the New Totalitarianism!
WE ARE EVERYWHERE AND WE COME TO LIBERATE THIS WORLD FROM EVERY INEQUALITY, EVERY EXPLOITATION, EVERY COERCION!
We Won’t Live Like Slaves!
We Will Reclaim our Stolen Space and our Stolen Time.
Participation of all of us into class, political, social, and cultural collectives!
Popular Assemblies into every Neighborhood! GENERAL STRIKE FOR EVER!
FOR THE GLOBAL SOCIAL REVOLUTION!
