THE All-RUSSIAN MOVEMENT
“ALTERNATIVY” EXPRESSES ITS SOLIDARITY
WITH THE SAVAS MATSAS-MICHAEL!
The “ALTERNATIVY” movement condemns the unjust initiative to bring into trial the 3 September 2013 a Greek Marxist intellectual, and Secretary General of the Workers’ Revolutionary Party (EEK) of Greece, Savas Michael Matsas. He is being falsely accused of “disturbing the civic peace” in the events of May 2009. That time there were huge police pogroms against the immigrants in Athens, in the neighbourhood of Aghios Panteleimonas, where the “Golden Dawn” murder squads terrorised the immigrants with the cover and in coordination of the local police.
At once in May 2009 the leaders of the “Golden Dawn” Ilias Panagiotaros, now a member of the Greek Parliament, and Themis Skordeli launched a lawsuit all the spectrum of the Greek left, from the Communist Party of Greece(KKE) and SYRIZA to the extra-parliamentary left, ANTARSYA and EEK, all the immigrant associations, and independent personalities like the Dean of the National Technical University of Athens Constantinos Moutzouris( accused to allow the alternative web site Athens.Indymedia to broadcast from the space in the campus).
The lawsuit was not relevant until late 2012, after the Greek elections of May and June 2012, when, the Golden Dawn was catapulted to Parliament from the margins of political life and the shadow of the State repressive apparatus. In November 2012, at the day celebrated nationally for decades now as the anniversary of the 1973 youth revolt in the Athens National Technical University(Polytechnic) against the military dictatorship of the colonels, the Greek Police, after receiving orders from the judiciary, started interrogations for all the accused in the Nazi lawsuit of 2009. In June 2013, from the dozens of the accused in the legal action of 2009, and interrogated in 2012, only Savas Michael(Sabetai) Matsas of the EEK was called to trial on September 3, 2013, together with the former Dean C. Moutzouris.
WE DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE TRUTHNESS OF CAUSES TO CALL ON TRIAL OUR COMRADE, REAL COMMUNIS, SAVAS MATSAS-MICHAEL!
WE DEMAND TO DROP ALL CHARGES AGAINST HIM!
