From Manly to Mordialloc, Aussie yoof go out, wave flags, wear red white and blue underwear, start to sing — and then remember they forget — the national anthem, shout abuse at strangers, get drunk, go home, and tell Mum and Dad they just don’t understand.

Greek police battle with rioters
BBC
January 24, 2009

Hundreds of anarchist protesters in Greece have fought running battles with police through the centre of the capital, Athens. The demonstrators were demanding the release of people arrested during rioting last month after a policeman shot dead a youth aged 15. Rioters smashed shop windows and threw stones and petrol bombs, police say. Officers responded with baton charges, tear gas and pepper spray and eventually dispersed the crowd. Compared to the riots that swept Greece last month, Saturday’s violence was on a relatively small scale but it showed that anger against the state and the police are still simmering, the BBC’s Malcolm Brabant reports from Athens. The street fighters and anarchists are trying hard to keep alive what they regard as December’s insurrection and demonstrations covering a wide range of grievances are taking place on a daily basis, our correspondent says. But the nature of the clashes may soon change, he adds. The futility of firing tear gas at rioters who wear gas masks has dawned on the authorities and it is reported that Greece is taking delivery of water cannon, which should be ready for action within a fortnight, our correspondent reports.

March ends in violence
Associated Press
The Observer
January 25, 2009

Hundreds of stylish anarchists fought police in central Athens yesterday following a march to demand the release of people arrested during last month’s riots. The clashes occurred outside the main University of Athens building, the rioters using stones, the police pepper spray. Anarchists were at the forefront of riots in Athens and other cities after the shooting last month of a teenager by a police officer.

The following article is no news, nor is it an analysis of the news. It is an attempt to create more understanding of the inner workings of the uprising, the sociopolitical and cultural climate in which it took place and the movement behind it.

    Having seen the traffic congestion in Sydney and Melbourne I can say that we are full. Why do we [keep] swamping our cities with an endless stream of non-assimilating ethnics?

    Excellent point john.

    I’ll skip right over John Drew’s amazing thesis that traffic congestion should be blamed on The Ethnics and just say that it’s good to know the anarchists in Greece are stylish.

    Ha John,
    Can’t you do a better job with your web site? Like, a teenager could do a better job th[a]n that. Come on John, get a teenager or some one to look after the web site.
    Oh yes, some one should do something about the AFP federal web site. It’s a joke.

  6. john drew says:

    My Brisbane AFP Branch web site at http://www.australiafirst.info has got lots of hits recently. Yes, I could do a better job but I am teaching myself web design gradually. If you think that the endless swamping of our cities with nonassimilating ethnics is a good idea then I suggest you are in the minority.

    “Australia First members from all over the nation will be attending the protest against multiracial immigration at Martin Place in Sydney on February 1, 2009. A group of Brisbane party branch members will be going to Sydney for this important expression of opposition to the daft immigration system which is ruining our cities in a variety of ways. All inquiries to Mike Bellringer on 0427 932 630. This wonderful gathering of patriots is his idea.”

    Sick! Now that i squat close to the city you can count on my being there john bro.

    Btw; Bellringer hahahahahahahahahaha.

    Each day I either play tennis or do rigorous fitness/strength training. It is mainly resistance training and plyometrics. I also do Baron Baptiste’s Power Yoga program.

    No, I don’t think it’s a good idea to swamp the cities or the bush with foreigners.

  13. Aussie Bonehead says:

    I am a bonehead. Boneheads are a reaction to the problems facing the working class. They are a working class movement seeking solutions to the[se] problems… Whites built this country. And why should they watch as their country gets destroyed by third world immigrants?

  14. @ndy says:

    Skinhead is a multi-cultural, multi-racial, youth subculture; boneheads are a racist, right-wing perversion.

    Sucks to be you.

    You boast like a 12 year old too mate, i guess with the youth you’re with your intellectual peers, that said; being a white nationalist…

    “I am a bonehead. Boneheads are a reaction to the problems facing the working class. They are a working class movement seeking solutions to the[se] problems… Whites built this country. And why should they watch as their country gets destroyed by third world immigrants?”

    Racism is not a “working class movement”, the problems that the working class face are caused by economic exploitation/alienation, NOT by immigrants who face THE SAME problems. Fuck you are a moron if you can’t see that.

  16. Winston Smith says:

    Fuck @ndy, you really are a chickenhawk in the original sense of the word. You were getting all antsy about being the big anarchist hero after Tyler Cassidy got shot, hoping for an Athens style riot against the Victorian “gubbermint”, but quickly got behind the pigs when it turned out he was not a poor little Sudanese kid picked on by racist cops, or a Muslim, or some other streetkid scumbag, but a nationalist from an Anglo background. After that revelation, the cops were just “doing their job”, no? As far as I can see it, Greek cops being pelted with bricks by anarchist mobs were just doing their job, protecting themselves. Had they been what you classify as “Nazis”, you would have supported them as well.

    You continually preach about the evils of the occasional bit of right wing violence in some far corner of the world, but applaud weeks of violence and mindless destruction in Athens, merely because it suits your agenda. The problem as you see it, is not violence, but the fact that some of it is not committed in your name, but actively against it. Where it is, you give complete sanction, no matter how many innocent people suffer such as in Athens. You’re a fucking hypocrite of the highest order, an insult to human intelligence.

  17. Aussie Bonehead says:

    The National Bolshevik boneheads are racialist yes. But seriously, what is so wrong with having pride in your race and nation? The Aborigin[e]s are allowed to have black pride but why can’t us whites have white pride? You Andrew, are a two faced anarchist bastard. It is interesting to note how many homosexuals and Jews are anarchists or Trotsky supporters. I’ve always hated homosexuals and other forms of social degeneracy. I am a racialist and I am proud of it. Got a problem with it, anarchist? National Bolshevik socialism is the future of Australia. The numbers of anarchists is declining as time goes by but the numbers of National Bolsheviks is increasing.

  18. @ndy says:

    Winston,

    Your interpretation of what I’ve written is both silly and childish. Feel free to quote me, otherwise you merit no further response. (PS. It’s gubbament, not gubbermint.)

    Aussie Bonehead,

    The National Bolsheviks are silly. They exist for little reason other than the self-aggrandisement of Eduard Limonov. I don’t care whether you love or hate homosexuals, or indeed, what you think about this, or any other subject. You are simply a bigot, and a fantasist. Presumably, your fantasies provide you with some degree of mental and psychological comfort; they do not, however, reflect reality, either in Russia or in Australia.

  19. Jamie R says:

    On this, it’s about survival. Period. I’ll cite Ben Bernanke and Indy will cite Noam Chomsky. But the method is the same, survival against the others. I think the Jews have done a good job, just ask Oppenheimer. Of course us born again Christians believe you can’t eradicate the Jews, and if you try you die.

    It had an amazing scent, the anarchic flower
    when I was young it flashed out of books and genealogies

  22. Lanklan says:

    John,

    I’m afraid your youthful web design skills have failed you in uploading your tennis snaps. On the upside though i received a thorough education in “Baron Baptiste’s Power Yoga program”.

    P.S Aren’t you a little old to be a youth?

  23. Aussie Bonehead says:

    Of course it is about survival. The Jews are a threat to the white race because they are undermining the Anglo-Australians. National Bolshevism doesn’t really care about race but puts priority on the independence of Australia and maintaining Australia as a independent economic, social and political entity separate from other nation states. We must be self reliant with strong industries that are necessary to remain as a first world economy and society. Frankly, we stand for economic independence and the preservation of Anglo Australia. We do not seek a fight with the Jews but merely to resolve the Jewish question in a humane manner. We recognise the right of every race of people to exist and prosper but not at the expense of other races. But the Jews reject this idea and want to live the high life at the expense of Anglo-Australians. Thus, the only solution to the Jewish question is for a mass deportation of all Jewish people along with the non whites from the Commonwealth of Australia. National Bolshevism wants a world system of separate development of the nation states and races along independent lines. We stand for moderate nationalism and moderate racialism. Genocide and extermination is stupid and totally unnecessary.

    “The National Bolsheviks are silly. They exist for little reason other than the self-aggrandisement of Eduard Limonov. I don’t care whether you love or hate homosexuals, or indeed, what you think about this, or any other subject. You are simply a bigot, and a fantasist. Presumably, your fantasies provide you with some degree of mental and psychological comfort; they do not, however, reflect reality, either in Russia or in Australia.”

    National Bolsheviks are not stupid. Their ideology has been developed over the last 90 years in a reaction to ongoing problems that have faced the nationalist and socialist movements in Germany and in the Russian Federation. The National Bolsheviks under the leadership of Otto Strasser were the ones within the National Socialist German Workers’ Party that rejected Adolf Hitler’s mad racial and economic policies. Hitler and Trotsky were the ones that were fantasists. Both of them were fascists and political, social and economic lunatics. They both go hand in hand with each other and must be rejected by all socialists and nationalists. Otto Strasser and Joseph Stalin opposed the Holocaust and the Great Patriotic War. The anarchists, Trotsky supporters and the left wing intelligentsia are the ones who are fantasists. The National Bolsheviks are realists and their views have been developed through years of experience and practice. We are about respect. Every nation, ethnic group and race must have respect for each other and work for the common good of each ethnic group, race and national state. Our policies and views reflect the realities in the Russian Federation and in the Commonwealth of Australia.

    I’m just a simple lad from Western Australia, nor did I really bother to read everything everyone has written here, thus, it is possible that I may simply be reiterating what Andy has already said. It is also possible that what I’m saying is totally incorrect.

    I think that what Andy is trying to say is that the Greek Anarchists are committed to their beliefs, they believe they are on the side of righteousness, and will stand up for what they believe in.

    He is comparing the Greek anarchists to the so called “Aussie Yoof” who are not committed, possibly don’t believe they are on the side of righteousness, and sure as hell won’t fight.

    Um. Did I spell Committed correctly? Not sure.

    Teenage deaths in Athens and Melbourne: A comparison

    “Police murdered a 15 year-old kid in Northcote last night,” read the text message, “Come to Northcote police station. Crew heading there now. Demand justice. F–k the bastards.” In the carpark outside the police station, a group of young radical types stood in a huddle, discussing the events of the previous night. Spread throughout the carpark, the media were identifiable by their obscure gang patches, 7, 9, 10.

    “Do you think it’ll go Greek?” one anarchist asked me. “I don’t think so,” I replied, “This is Northcote, not Exarchia.”

    And yet, despite my pithy response in the damp patch of ashphalt between Northcote Plaza and All Nations Park, the question persisted throughout the day — on radio, on blogs, on the newspaper websites… even my mum asked me: Why does nobody listen to me?

    The similarity was striking, I suppose. Only five days after Athenian police had gunned down a 15-year-old boy, Alexandros Grigoropoulos, police in the third-largest Greek city in the world had shot dead another 15-year-old boy, Tyler Cassidy. The key is in the contrast:

    * In Northcote, the police [claim to have] had no choice.
    * In Athens, eyewitnesses describe the police initiating conflict by provoking the youths.
    * In Northcote, the police tried to negotiate, before turning to capsicum foam, then resorting to their sidearms.
    * In Athens, eyewitnesses describe the police officer who fired the shots as having exposed his genitals just prior to executing Alexandros.
    * In Athens, the police officer was a member of a neo-Nazi gang.

    There is contrast in the response too: While anarchists in Greece reported on goings-on there in an almost poetic manner, on 4Chan, Anonymous amused itself by photoshopping pictures of knives into Cassidy’s hands and bombarding a tribute MySpace with abuse (it has since been taken down).

    While Greece burned, hundreds of people around the world expressed solidarity (some then had riots of their own). In Melbourne, Cassidy was mentioned at a solidarity vigil attended by 30 well-soaked bleeding hearts outside the Greek consulate on Saturday. On Sunday afternoon, two dodgy looking blokes in a car tried to organise a rally outside the Northcote police station. Nobody showed up.

    Cassidy’s juvenile politics makes him easy to hate, but while the Southern Cross Soldiers are a bit of a nasty bunch, being a d-ckhead is not yet a capital crime. Alexandros Grigoropoulos’ death will be long remembered for the actions it initiated.

    Cassidy’s death will fall down the memory hole — a stupid, messed-up kid on a suicide mission. He deserves better — he should be remembered as the kid whose death prompted increased funding to Crisis Assessment Teams and improvements to police training. He should be remembered as the last needless police death in Victoria. He won’t be, but he should.
