A cantiga é uma arma

A Assembleia Sintagma resistiu à ordem de evacuação dada pelo presidente de câmara Kaminis. Os agentes "de limpeza" desobedeceram às suas ordens, às 4 da manhã. A música evitou o despejo.
E cá, quando é que os músicos saem à rua e a cantiga se faz arma?

ATHENS, July 11th - According to an official press release published yesterday by the City Hall of Athens and divulged by local TV channels, sanitary corps will perform a cleaning operation in Syntagma Square. This is the major square of the Greek capital and the location of the indignant camp since the 25th of May. This camp is the symbol of the Greek population's disagreement with current economical and social politics of Governments and banks and in a way to experience a new model of social living and organization .
But -once again - #solidarity is the word of current pro-democratic uprisings around the world.The cleaning agents of the local government of Athens refused to take part in the 'cleaning action' planned by the Mayor. Without the consensus of the local Popular Assembly, the agents who were supposed to clean the square - at 4 am last night - decided to disobey their orders in support of the people of Syntagma.

Resposta da Assembleia Popular Sintagma

To Mr Kaminis
Following  a government order, you have stated that you are going to empty Syntagma square, undertaking thus, the task of executing an unconstitutional act since in our Constitution the article 11 protects categorically the right of the citizens to gather and assemble. We remind to you that the public spaces belong to the citizens.

  1. Os músicos saírem à rua, por cá? Primeiro querem saber quanto recebem, depois pensam no assunto. As figuras públicas não dão a cara a não ser quando isso lhes traz proveito. Onde estão eles quando se trata de falar contra a corrupção, contra a exploração, contra o mau trato dos animais, etc, etc? Tomar partido pode fazer perder audiência. Não arriscam, são covardes demais para se mexerem.
