Τί κάνουμε;

Συνέβησαν πολλά τις δύο τελευταίες εβδομάδες.
Λύπη για την δολοφονία του Αλέξη. Χαρά για την κοινωνική οργή. Αναστοχασμός για τη πραγματικότητα.
Ακόμη στους δρόμους...
Ακυρώσαμε τις συναυλίες που είχαμε δρομολογήσει για την Αθήνα και τη Θεσσαλονίκη.
Σταματήσαμε την ηχογράφηση που θα συνεχιστεί πια μετά τις γιορτές.

Και βλέπουμε...

hello there people. I wanted to report that a 15 year old boy was shot dead
IN COLD BLOOD by the police at 21:00 in the centre of Athens, Greece, on the
6th of December 2008, as RATM is a highly political music band, and this is
a political issue that is raised in Greece.

The death, the murder of innocence is symbolized by the murder of the
teenager. The murder of our freedom to go wherever we want and to speak our
minds... (the boy spoke against the cops and this infuriated them and
ofcourse the rage raised the gun, their power, and shot the boy dead).
Ofcourse this provoked a series of riots in a country where the problems for
the youth were already youth, and now here they are murdering us. The
negative aspect is that our cities are being burnt down, but who can blame
us now? Rage and injustice creates chaos and that's a fact, and ALL HELL
CAN'T STOP US NOW, the gates of rage are open and who knows how they'll be
closed...

Now things are getting worse as the murderers are killing the boy for the
second time, as they accuse him of antisocial and agressive abnormal
behaviour and the accusations are not even true, the boy was a typical
rebellious teenager who would do no harm but who spoke up for his ideals! So
we won't let them, we won't let them continue killing us...

The memory of Alex will be a guide for all of us, let him rest in peace and
Don't stop fighting AGAINST THE MACHINE, this machine that's trying to drin
our blood day after day...

I hope that the whole world will know about it. We need empathy and united
struggle.

Thanx for reading this...

Remember: Cause and Effect, YOU'LL NEVER SILENCE THE VOICE OF THE
VOICELESS!!!

Οι άνθρωποι είναι ό,τι γίνονται Νο2 ή Τα Του Κάισαρος Τω Καίσαρι

Μικρό κείμενο για την υπεράσπιση των αντιεξουσιαστών

Κάθε κοινωνικός σχηματισμός που έχει ή θέλει την εξουσία εκτρέφει και εκπαιδεύει μαντρόσκυλα. Το κράτος έχει την αστυνομία και το παρακράτος. Στα κόμματα έχουμε τα ονομαζόμενα «μαντρόσκυλα». Επιλέγονται επιθετικές ράτσες και βέβαια εκπαιδεύονται για να αναπτύξουν στο έπακρο αυτή τη ροπή. Αντίθετα οι διάφορες αντιεξουσιαστικές ομάδες δεν έχουν ανάγκη για κάτι τέτοιο γιατί δεν έχουν σκοπό να καταλάβουν την εξουσία ούτε μάντρες να φυλάξουν. Έτσι γίνονται πιο ευάλωτοι σε προβοκάτσιες μα καλύτερα ελεύθεροι και ευάλωτοι παρά σκλάβοι και ασφαλείς. Πολλοί κρύβουν τα πρόσωπά τους είτε για τεχνικούς λόγους (προστασία από δακρυγόνα και άλλα παρανοϊκά σκευάσματα καταστολής) είτε και για να μη τους αναγνωρίσουν από τη στιγμή που κάνουν παράνομες ενέργειες. Όποιος φοράει κουκούλα δεν σημαίνει πως είναι δειλός. Είναι δειλός – ας πούμε – ο Κομαντάντε Μάρκος?

Κατανοώ τη βία των αδυνάτων που προσπαθούν να υπερασπίσουν την ανθρώπινη αξιοπρέπεια, έχει ηθικά ερείσματα. Φοβάμαι όμως πως όποιος μολυνθεί από την υιό της βίας, ακόμα και όταν ο στόχος του είναι ουμανιστικός, θα αποτύχει στο τέλος. Το μέσον κι ο σκοπός αγιάζουν το αποτέλεσμα. Αντί για τη βία προτιμώ την ανέλιξη της πνευματικότητας και την ανθρωπιά σαν μέσο για μια καλύτερη ζωή. Παρ’ όλα αυτά όμως θεωρώ τους αντιεξουσιαστές σαν το πιο ανιδιοτελές και θαρραλέο τμήμα των κοινωνικών αγωνιστών είτε στα δικά μας πρόσφατα γεγονότα, είτε στο απώτερο παρελθόν είτε στο μέλλον, τοπικά ή παγκόσμια…. Σαν επίλογο, συμπληρώνοντας ίσως τα παραπάνω με κάτι από το διακόνεμα μου, παραθέτω τις δύο τελευταίες στροφές από το ακυκλοφόρητο τραγούδι μου «Ο Σαν Μικέλε Είχε Έναν Κόκκορα» :

Πείτε μου. Μη βρέθηκε η σκάφη που, παλιά,

Λουζόμουνα με ήλιο και με χιόνι

Ή τα μαλλιά που φύλαξε απ’ την πρώτη μου κουρά

Η μάνα που ακόμα ρούχα απλώνει?

Το πτυελοδοχείο του Μπακούνιν το χυτό,

Σύντροφοι, μήπως βρέθηκε και κείνο,

Να φτύσω μέσα με θυμό που οι νέες εποχές

Με κάνουνε να μοιάζω με αρλεκίνο?
