[Xmca-l] Information about a petition in support for Greek people and Greek reactions to it



Dear colleagues,

some of you might be interested to hear about a petition in support for Greece (see below) which was initiated at a conference in Athens last week. Activity theorists have been among the initiators. The petition was sent to Greek media on Saturday. While this particular action is now finished, several Greek colleagues emphasized that our solidarity means a lot to them and will be crucial also in the days to come. May be this will inspire some of us to take part in some future actions of solidarity. Here two statements from Greek colleagues:

"/Thanks very much for this; great to meet some of you in this historic week for Greece and Europe. After a proud NO from the Greek people, we need to continue supporting the Greek government in the negotiations that have already started, showing solidarity and mobilizing resources for a solution that respects democracy and ends austerity not only in Greece but across Europe/."

"/To complement the terror sparked by the capital controls, the explicit interventions of EU and other European politicians directly demanding from Greek voters to vote against the government and in favor the austerity measures, the companies-to-employees threats, and the pressures from the local political and financial elites, the Greek and many international media (print and electronic) have been orchestrating a propaganda by constantly airing unsubstantiated claims by “experts” and other “representatives”, all of whom accidentally are in favor of the even more harsh austerity measures, and are quite interestingly associated ideologically with the conservative, neoliberal, right wing nomenclature around Europe and Greece. Their only argument is that if Greeks vote against these measures EU will kick Greece out of the euro and this equals a catastrophe even bigger than this that would take place if we simply accept another wave of austerity measures. Simply turn on any Greek TV channel and ask from a Greek colleague to tell you the opinions of members in any TV panel.///

/For your records, at the moment:/

//

 *

   /unemployment in Greece is officially at 26% of the working
   population (1.4 mil. people –unofficially they are more than 3
   million If you take into consideration those that they have stopped
   reporting their employment state, and mostly those employed only a
   few hours per week gaining less than 200€ per month), /

 * /

   another 3 million people live near the poverty limit (that is, they
   cannot afford buying all meals of the week, or pay their utilities,
   let alone their mortgages, or taxes),

 *

   and another 3 million people can hardly cover all of their mortgages
   and taxes,

 *

   leaving less than a couple of millions that can run a life of the
   average middle class in a western country

 * /

   /needless to refer to the few thousands that have built monumental
   fortunes by evading taxation and suppressing labor costs./

//

/I expect that Greeks will vote “NO” to the austerity measures by majority. But even if this is not the case, I hope that my description will help you see why.//Thank you and all the colleagues for contributing to this fight of Greek people.///"


Best regards,
Zlatko Bodrozic

-------------------------------
Several of us are here in Athens at a conference of the European Group on Organization Studies — one of the leading associations of management scholars. Angered by the brutal austerity policies being forced onto Greece by the Troika/Institutions, yesterday we launched a petition in protest — see it below. We are still gathering signatures from people here as well as in our broader network, but we have already garnered the support of many leading scholars.

Statement:

Forcing austerity upon Greece has had devastating effects on its economy and on the most vulnerable members of the Greek society. While ministers of Finance of 18 Eurozone countries are trying to force further austerity upon Greece, the undersigned management scholars from these same countries and other countries stand in solidarity with the Greek government and people in rejecting such an economically counterproductive and inhuman approach.
