The Greek insurrection began almost a year ago. As we approach the anniversary, we must ask ourselves what happened, what's happening, what failed, and, most importantly, what worked? As we reflect, we must also recognize our roles as U.S. anarchists in solidarity with this insurrection. We can all remember how we felt last year when we heard Alexi was killed and that Athens was burning. We held solidarity actions then, and we must demonstrate again.

The Greek insurrection led to the fall of the right-wing government and the election of a socialist government. While its president calls it “antiauthoritarians in power,” and the Minister of Public Order claims to have many anarchists as good friends, on the new administration's first day the Greek Socialist Party invaded the anarchist neighborhood of Exarchia in Central Athens. Since then, repression of anarchists has been constant. The socialist administration attacked November 17th demonstrations commemorating the 1973 rising against the military junta, and have maintained a media blackout in Exarchia, whose residents they continue to raid, detain, arrest, and pummel. These actions will not go unpunished. Regardless, the movement in Greece is only gaining steam, and the stage is set for another Greek December to remember. It is a time to once again muster the feelings of joy in solidarity with our comrades in Greece in order to hold another day of solidarity on Sunday December 6th, 2009 the anniversary of Alexi's death. We will hold actions and demos at Greek consulates, school occupations, and candle lit vigils so the spirits of our comrades are not forgotten.

In Boston, we will meet on the Copley Square green at 4pm and march to the consulate building (on Beacon St, between Arlington and Charles Streets).
