Declaration of an assembly of 3000 on Saturday 28th May:
For a long time now, decisions are taken for us, without us.
We are workers, unemployed, pensioners, youth who came to Syntagma to struggle for our lives and our futures.
We are here because we know that the solution to our problems can only come from us.
We invite all Athenians, the workers, the unemployed and the youth to Syntagma, and the entire society to fill up the squares and to take life into its hands.
There, in the squares, we shall co-shape all our demands.
We call all workers who will be striking in the coming period to end up and to remain at Syntagma.
We will not leave the squares before those who lead us here leave first: Governments, the Troika, Banks, Memorandums and everyone who exploits us.
We tell them that the debt is not ours.
DIRECT DEMOCRACY NOW!
EQUALITY – JUSTICE – DIGNITY!
The only defeated struggle is the one that was never given!
I heard from a contact that last night in Syntagma Square there were about 50,000 people, everyone occupying it, while excluding all the political parties. There were 2-3000 people in a big assembly, definitely some anarchists, but overall people who are outside any scene. This was the 5th night. The decisions of the assembly (including its statements and its exclusion of fascists) have been really exciting. The big decision last night was not only to continue the occupation and assembly of this square, which is in front of the Greek Parliament, but also, starting today, to occupy many of the smaller squares in the neighborhoods, and begin assemblies there to begin self-organizing locally. Another thing posed by the central assembly is a self-organized, indefinite wildcat general strike, as opposed to the symbolic strikes organized by the big unions, but it's not clear if this is yet anywhere close to realistic.
