Screw Troika! We want our lives!15
September, 17h, Lisbon
We must do something extraordinary. We must take the streets and the squares, the openroads, the side roads, the countryside. This silence is killing us. The noise of themainstream media echoes in the silence, replicating that silence, weaving webs of liesthat numb us and kill our desire. We must do something against submission, defeat,against the stifling of ideas, against the death of our common will. We must summon oncemore the voices, the arms and the legs of us all, knowing our present and our future aredecided on the streets. We must win over fear, this fear that has been skilfully set andspread around us, and understand, once and for all, that we have almost nothing left tolose, and that the day will soon come when we will have lost it all, because we kept toourselves, we felt alone, we gave up.The plunder (loan, rescue, ransom, bail out, whatever lie they chose to make us cave in)has begun, and, with it, countless ravishing policies, whereby unemployment,precariousness, poverty and social injustice will rise dramatically, most of the state'sassets will be sold out, social welfare, education and health (with the national healthsystem in its death throes) will be severed, cultural and public services will becomeobsolete – all in favour of people and companies that get rich with the speculation on acountry's default. After one more year of austerity under external surveillance, ourperspectives, the hopes of the greater part of Portugal's residents, are bleaker than ever.The austerity imposed upon us to destroy our dignity and life does not solve our problemsbut only stifles democracy. Those who accept to govern us under the Troika'sMemorandum are giving up on the fundamental tools for our country's management,giving them away to speculators and technocrats, on the basis of an economic modelfavouring the survival of the fittest and the strongest, just like in the jungle, neglectingour expectations as a community, our living conditions, our dignity.Greece, Spain, Italy, Ireland and Portugal are hostages of Troika and its financialspeculation. They have lost their sovereignty and get poorer every day, as is bound tohappen to all countries submitted to austerity. Against the inevitability of this compulsionto linger and die, we must do something extraordinary.We must build alternatives, step by step, springing from motivated populations, from thecitizens of those countries – Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland - and of each andevery one brought together, acting together, fighting for their lives and uniting theirvoices.If they want to bend us, force us to accept unemployment, precariousness and injustice asa lifestyle, we shall answer with the power of democracy, of liberty, of motivation. Thepower to fight back. We want to take the decisions of the present in our hands, so that wecan build a future.This is, therefore, a call to all men and women from diverse areas of activity and politicalsympathies. We appeal to everyone - individuals, groups, movements, associations, non-governmental organizations, syndicates, political structures and parties - to marchtogether on the street on the 15th September.They've divided us to oppress us. We will unite to free ourselves!Facebook -https://www.facebook.com/events/402643499798144/ Email: queselixeatroika15set@gmail.comTwitter - https://twitter.com/queselixetroika
