Interview with Greek anti-authoritarian communist collective TPTG about crisis of capitalism and its reflections on Greece and class struggle of proletariat against austerity measures. Interview was made before elections in Greece, but we discuss Left and their actions. Also, first two answers are taken from their article Burdened with Debt Reloaded.
[b]In 2010 you’ve published an article Burdened with Debt which you have presented in summer camp. In this article you’ve wrote about the way in which the crisis of capitalism is reflected in Greece, i.e.
Greek communists TPTG take another detailed look at the impact of austerity measures in the country, the devaluation of capital and the attack on the power of the working class.
In Greece, the initial austerity measures developed into a full blown shock policy of devaluation of capital, which has deepened the recession and increased public debt.
Le mouvement des assemblées dans les places a commencé complètement inopinément le 25 mai  à Athènes. Il est peu clair qui était le groupe de personnes initial qui a pris à l'initiative d’envoyer un appel pour un rassemblement dans la place Syntagma sur Facebook pour exprimer son "indignation" et sa colère face aux mesures d'austérité du gouvernement. Il semble cependant que quelques personnes autour d'un groupe politique influencé par l'idéologie démocratique de Castoriadis aient été impliquées parmi d'autres dans cette initiative.
Les mass media lui ont fait une publicité favorable et, pendant les premiers jours, on a pu voir une référence dans les médias à une bannière vue dans les mobilisations espagnoles : "Chut, ne criez pas, nous allons réveiller les Grecs" ou quelque chose comme ça. Naturellement, personne ne pouvait imaginer la suite.
The movement of the assemblies in the squares started completely unexpectedly on the 25th of May in Athens. It’s unclear which was the initial group of people that took the initiative to post a call for a rally in Syntagma square on Facebook to express their “indignation” and anger at the government’s austerity measures. It seems though that some people around a political group influenced by the later Castoriadis’ democratic ideology were involved among others in that initiative.
The call was publicized favourably by the mass media and during the first days there was a reference in the media to a banner that allegedly appeared in the Spanish mobilizations: “Shhh, do not shout, we will wake up the Greeks” or something like that. Of course, no one could expect what would follow.
Amidst the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, TPTG analyse and explain the roots of the conflict and give an account of the original "Balkanisation" of the Balkans.

A Christmas message from some Greek participants in the December 2008 uprising.
“No one has the right to use this tragic incident as an alibi for brutalities”.
- Statement by prime minister K. Karamanlis, one of these days
“There is no question of 'violence'; there is just a side being attacked during a war already in progress and thus the question of the means sufficient for victory”.
This is a critique of Theorie Communiste's erroneous idea that the December 2008 rebellion in Greece was born out of the "breaching of the social contract" on the part of the state and the "running out of future" for the proletariat as a whole. By criticizing their false notion of a generalized helotry we throw doubt upon their speculation that what is at stake today is the very survival of the proletariat and that because of this the proletariat will objectively be forced to treat its class belonging as something to do away with.
