An Iranian national who was granted political asylum by the Greek authorities has posted a provocative, hate-filled message on an anarchist website which calls for a movement to arm the illegal invaders held up at the Greek-Turkish border with weapons so they can violently engage Greek border authorities.
Voice of Europe (h/t SAFI) In his message that was posted on March 9th, Abtin Parsa, a self-proclaimed “anarchist refugee” said that the “most useful solidarity to the immigrants who are at the border is to arm them because the answer to bullets should be bullets back and this is the only way to open the border for all the immigrants.
We as immigrants should fight for what we need and at the moment, our first need is survival, so we must destroy those who are killing us; we have nothing to lose but our fear.”
The hate-filled message, written by an immigrant who was generously granted asylum by the Greek government, is particularly infuriating and is likely to make anti-immigrant feelings among Greeks and Europeans worse than they already have become, the Greek City Times reports.
Abtin Parsa’s full statement reads:
We are in a war situation, some of us were killed, some of us are in prisons, some of us were pushed to escape and are being hidden and many of us are under a lot of pressure. We should accept that resistance against state and capitalism is not the easy way of life but we have no choice: either we resist together and survive, or the state and capitalism will kill all of us one by one.
After months of being under watch, follow and harassment by anti-Islamic terrorist unit, on February 13, when the oppression did target me and those who have contact with me more than in the past, I did take a political decision to be hidden. I am not in a safe place and no one is in a safe place because in this neoliberal capitalism system, there is no safe place, so being hidden inside 4 walls does not mean you are safe.
In this period of time, there is a historical and political responsibility for the movement to defend the armed resistance. The goal of state repression is first to pacifize and in the end to destroy any kind of resistance, because the state does not want the oppressed to fight back.
The state talks about peace but this peace is nothing but monopolizing the violence in the hand of state. The state is trying to make us unable to return the violence, but the oppressed should defend themselves by any means that they understand; otherwise there is no survival.
The immigrants are the first target to get attacked by the state because we as immigrants are the must weak people in the society; that is why any time the state wants it can attack us, and in order to give legitimacy to its attacks, the state criminalizes us through its media.
The real robbers are capitalists and the real criminals are politicians. We are not dangerous for the society; those cops are dangerous for the society and the only terrorists are the state and capitalism. We must attack the interests of state and capitalism in solidarity with
immigrants illegal invaders.
Since a few days ago, thousands of (illegal immigrants are in the border of Greece/Turkey and try to get inside EU, but the cops and soldiers used war bullets and tear gas against illegal immigrants.
Right now, the most useful solidarity to the immigrants who are at the border is to arm them because the answer to bullets should be bullets back and this is the only way to open the border for all the immigrants.
