Migrants And Self Organisation.

       Our babbling brook of bullshit, the mainstream media, on occasion do carry articles about the "migrants" ( wrong word, people fleeing the result of Western imperialism, would be a more apt description.) entering Europe. On some occasions they focus on the conditions, sometimes the hostility, but never about their fight back and self organisation. What they never want to emphasise is the fact that people will fight back, and will organise themselves, they must always be seen to be standing about waiting for the state and its apparatus stepping to sort things out, waiting for the state to make their lives better. Of course we all should know, the state will never come up with a proper humanitarian answer, on the contrary, their answers will always be laced with racism, patriotism and, economics that suit the corporate greed machine.
Another episode from Anarchist Radio Berlin:
     The following audio is a recording made by activists of the self-organized refugee squat Orfanotrofeio in Thessaloniki Greece. This material has been made available to us by our comrades at Crna Luknja, the anarchist radio show at Radio Student in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.
The comrades of Orfanotrofeio tell about the conditions that led to squatting this place in Thessaloniki in the beginning of last December and about their struggle to keep the place despite of all obstacles.
