Ein längerer Thread zum Polytechnikum-Aufstand am 17. November 1973 in #Athen der den Anfang vom Ende der #junta einläutete. 1/x
Der Aufstand des Polytechnikums im Jahre 1973 war der wütende Ausbruch von kämpfenden und revolutionären Menschen jeder Couleur, der einmal mehr die Rollenklischees und Verunglimpfungen der herrschenden Ideologie überwarf.
Es handelte sich hierbei weder um ein isoliertes noch um ein zufälliges Ereignis. Es war vorbereitet und kündigte sich durch organisierte Studentendemonstrationen, Arbeiter:innenproteste und gesellschaftliche Kämpfe während in den Jahren der militärischen Junta an.

In the fight against the spread of Corona, the Greek government has ordered a three-week lockdown for the entire country from Saturday.
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis justified the tough step in a televised address that he could not allow the health system to be overloaded. From Saturday morning at 6 a.m., all shops except supermarkets, pharmacies and other essential businesses must close.
There is also a general curfew from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. This does not apply to employed persons who have a corresponding confirmation from their employer. If you want to go shopping or go to the doctor during the day, you have to inform about it by SMS.

The Greek government announced a nationwide night exit ban on Saturday to reduce the spread of Corona. “After a long phase of stability, the cases are also increasing exponentially in our country,”
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis justified the step in a video address. "Our scientists warn that the new pandemic will soon shake the resilience of the national health system." The exit ban between midnight and 5 a.m. is due to come into force next Tuesday.

In view of the increasing number of infections, the Greek government has announced curfews for the cities of Athens, Thessaloniki and other corona hotspots.

From Saturday, residents in the affected cities will no longer be allowed to leave their homes between 0.30 a.m. and 5.00 a.m. Mitsotakis said that a mask should apply there both indoors and outdoors. "The mask is the vaccine before there is a vaccine," he added.

Greece is strengthening the security systems at the land and sea borders with Turkey. Behind this is probably the fear of a new influx of migrants. Five meters high, 27 kilometers long, 63 million euros expensive:
Greece is arming itself with massive barriers on the Evros river against the feared new migrant flows from Turkey. Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis inspected the construction work over the weekend.
The Greek land border with Turkey is 206 kilometers long. For the most part, but not continuously, it follows the course of the Evros River (Turkish: Meric). The Evros was the scene of a week-long trial of strength in the spring:

The government in Athens has accused dozens of members of non-governmental organizations of spying and assisting smugglers. The Greek secret service (EYP) determined this.
"It is an espionage case involving non-governmental organizations," said Greek civil protection vice minister, Lefteris Oikonomou, to the Athens newspaper "To Proto Thema". Last week the Greek police had accused 35 NGO members of acting as smugglers and spies.
A corresponding report was sent to the judiciary. Those concerned are said to have passed information on the positions of the Greek coast guard and coordinates of possible landing sections off the island of Lesbos to smugglers in Turkey.

The “Zorro” masks are a “catastrophic mistake”, admitted the deputy and sister of the Conservative Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis,
Dora Bakoyannis, after hundreds of schoolchildren took photos of themselves with face-to-face protection in social networks on Monday shared and joked about their "parachutes". The manufacturer rejected responsibility for the disaster.
"The size was oversized right from the start," said Yiannis Stathopoulos to Open TV. “There was a misunderstanding,” said Vice Health Minister Vassilis Kontozamanis to journalists on Tuesday. The dimensions given were based on "pre-sewn" fabric. The problem will be fixed.

The smoldering gas dispute between Greece and Turkey is not just verbal. When it comes to Athens, concrete leverage against Ankara should be available soon: The military will receive 18 French Rafale fighter jets and four new frigates.
The time has come to strengthen the units, said Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. The armed forces are also to be strengthened by 15,000 new hires over the next four years. Greece wants to expand its defense capabilities. This included new weapons, torpedoes, and missiles.
The country's loss-making arms industry is being modernized.

In #Griechenland wurde, als in Deutschland der Griechenlandhype mit der documenta in #Kassel auf einem Höhepunkt schien, das Ausmaß der Hegemoninalpolitik der BRD deutlich. Kulturelle Almosen folgten. Selbstverständlich hat die ästhetische Linke auch vor zwei-drei Jahren nichts
bewirkt. Kassel ist aber im Besitz eines Hauses in #Athen (documenta14.de/de/imagebank/1…), während im Stadteil #Exarchia in Athen Leestand nicht geduldet wird (). Maria Eichhorns "unbesessenes Haus", für alle offen und ein Kunstwerk, das Besitz in
Frage stellen soll, ist Eigentum der documenta gGmbH. Die Naivität, mit der die Sozialkunst die #documenta auf den neusten Stand brachte, zeigt, wie wenig die politische Linke im Kulturk(r)ampf auszurichten hat. #MariaEichhorn präsentierte 2017 ihre Kunst mit dem Anspruch,
