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



This petition was meant to create a broad consensus among colleagues about rejecting inhuman and counterproductive austerity policies in Greece and beyond. May be this is only a small step for humankind, but a big step for some of the Greek people we have met last week.

Zlatko
only a socialist revolution can save the greek people and can grant her an
honorable, sustainable human life, as advocated by kke, cpg.
all options other than this are either a lie or an illusion, which does
conceal today's capitalism's realities or concsiously deceive the working
masses.
syriza govt is managing this crisis for capital and tries to
keep the country in the line of interests for greek and international
capital, not for the working class. like podemos in spain.
capitalist europe is shrinking in all respects and it is time for working
peoples to search for other, much more realistic options.
otherwise, peoples will  miss these days.

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.
