RESOLUTION OF SOLIDARITY

Reject the Nazi lawsuit - Drop all charges against the Secretary of EEK Savvas Michael -Matsas and the former Rector of the National Technical University of Athens Konstantinos Moutzouris.

Savvas Michael- Matsas, Secretary General of the Workers’ Revolutionary Party (EEK) of Greece, will go on trial on 3 September 2013. He is being accused of "defamation" against the Nazi Party, the
Golden Dawn, because a leaflet issued by the EEK and published in its newspaper , the New Perspective, in May 2009, had characterised the Golden Dawn as a Nazi organisation that instigates racist attacks against immigrants and called for participation into an antifascist demonstration. Other accusations levelled at him are "instigation of violence and chaos" and "disruption of the civil peace".

At the same time, the Nazis have intensified a non-stop, vicious anti-Semitic and anti-communist campaign against the Secretary of the EEK, accusing him of being "an instrument of the World Jewish Conspiracy to foment civil war among Greeks to impose a Judeo-Bolshevik regime in Greece", and publishing his picture with the death threat "Crash the Jewish vermin!"

The Greek State has endorsed the lawsuit by the Golden Dawn and is bringing on trial on September 3, 2013, Savvas Michael, together with the former Rector of the National Technical University of Athens, Mr Constantine Moutzouris (accused of permitting the broadcasting of the alternative web site Athens Indymedia from the space of the University).

The Greek police force are collaborating with the fascists of the Golden Dawn, who are neither prosecuted nor even arrested despite their attacks, armed with guns and bats, against the immigrants, other oppressed people and fighting organisations. The judiciary, for its part, rather than investigating into the cowardly assaults and assassinations committed by members of the Golden Dawn against
immigrants, is trying to intimidate the combative sections of the working class and the left.

We denounce these actions! Solidarity in Greece and the rest of the world! Drop all charges against Savvas Michael- Matsas and Constantine Moutzouris!
