Σύνταγμα: Το κίνημα των πλατειών στην Ελλάδα από τη μεριά κάποιων συμμετεχόντων

Σάβατο, 9 Ιουνίου, 15:30, κέντρο Depo, Κωνσταντινούπολη

Η κολλεκτίβα  Mind The Cam σε συνεργασία με το κέντρο Depo οργανώνουν ένα πληροφοριακό event, με αφορμή τον ένα χρόνο μετά τη γέννηση του κινήματος της πλατείας Συντάγματος. Το event περιλαμβάνει παρουσίαση φωτογραφιών, βίντεο και συζήτηση για την υφιστάμενη πολιτική κατάσταση, τα κινήματα βάσης στην Ελλάδα και τις πιθανές ομοιότητες με την Τουρκία.

Το κάλεσμα των Ισπανών “Αγανακτισμένων” της Πουέρτα ντελ Σολ (15Μ) το 2011 για “πραγματική δημοκρατία τώρα” έφτασε στη σωστή στιγμή για να προκαλέσει την έκρηξη του ελληνικού λαού, που ήδη υπέφερε από σκληρά μέτρα λιτότητας για πάνω από ένα χρόνο. Την 25η Μαϊου ένα κίνημα γεννήθηκε στην Αθήνα, το οποίο πήρε το όνομά του από την πλατεία Συντάγματος, όπου οι Έλληνες “αγανακτισμένοι” έστησαν τη λαϊκή τους συνέλευση, ακριβώς μπροστά από το ελληνικό κοινοβούλιο. Η συνέλευση της πλατείας Συντάγματος γενόμενη ένα παράδειγμα άμεσης δημοκρατίας και συμμετοχικής λήψης αποφάσεων έθεσε το βασικό ζήτημα στην πολιτική σκηνή: τι είδους διακυβέρνηση θέλουμε;

Το κίνημα του Συντάγματος ήταν μαζικό για πάνω από δύο μήνες, οργανώνωντας λαϊκές συνελεύσεις κάθε κάθε βράδυ στις οποίες χιλιάδες άνθρωποι συμμετείχαν, οργανώνοντας αναρίθμητες δράσεις στην πλατεία, καλώντας τον κόσμο να διαδηλώσει σχεδόν κάθε Κυριακή και συντονίζοντας αυτές τις δράσεις με το ρυθμό των πλατειών του κόσμου. Η οριζοντια φύση του κινήματος, η αντι-ιεραρχική δομή του και οι ειρηνικές διαμαρτυρίες του το έκαναν έναν ιδιαίτερο αντίπαλο για την ελληνική κυβέρνηση. Ο μόνος τρόπος αντιμετόπισης του ήταν ο μοναδικός τρόπος που γνώριζαν και εμπιστεύονταν: η ωμή βία.

Με την καταστολή του κινήματος η κυβέρνηση εναντιώθηκε την ίδια στιγμή απέναντι σε μια ολόκληρη κοινωνία που πάλευε ενάντια στην λιτότητα, για αξιοπρεπή διαβίωση, για ένα αξιοπρεπές μέλλον. Εκατοντάδες χιλιάδες ανθρώπων συμμετείχαν σε αυτό το κίνημα βάσης και/ή διαδήλωσαν στη διάρκεια αυτών των μηνών, όχι μόνο στους δρόμους της Αθήνας, αλλά και σε ολόκληρη τη χώρα. Η κρατική βία απονομιμοποιήθηκε και χιλιάδες άνθρωποι έγιναν η μαγιά για όλα όσα θα ακολουθούσαν.

Ο χρόνος που ακολούθησε είναι ένας χρόνος μεγάλων αγώνων και πρωτοφανών αλλαγών στο πολιτικό κατεστημένο της χώρας, που οδήγησε στην πτώση του δικοματισμού στην Ελλάδα.

Αυτό τον καιρό ο ελληνικός λαός πιστεύει στην δύναμη του. Πιστεύει ότι τα πάντα είναι δυνατά.

Πολλοί αναλυτές και δημοσιογράφοι ανά τον κόσμο έχουν εκφράσει την άποψη ότι η Ελλάδα είναι το πειραματόζωο για μια κατάσταση που κατακλύζει με γρήγορους ρυθμούς άλλες χώρες στην Ευρώπη όπως η Πορτογαλλία και η Ιταλία. Θα μπορούσε αυτό να ισχύει και για την Τουρκία σε μερικά χρόνια;

Η κολλεκτίβα Mind the Cam είναι μια ομάδα ανθρώπων που προέρχεται από την ομάδα Multimedia (MMT) της πλατείας Συντάγματος. Στη διάρκεια των γεγονόντων στην πλατεία η ΜΜΤ κινηματογράφησε διάφορα κομμάτια του κινήματος, δράσεις και δραστηριότητες που δεν προβάλλονται από τα καθεστωτικά ΜΜΕ και προσπάθησε να χτίσει ένα κανάλι ενημέρωσης φτιαγμένο άπο ακτιβιστές της πλατείας, που θα έδινε φωτό- και βιντεο-ρεπορτάζ, ως κομμάτι της “δημοσιογραφίας των πολιτών”. Μετά την πλατεία Συντάγματος μερικά μέλη της ΜΜΤ συνέχισαν να τροφοδοτούν τον ιστότοπο της ΜΜΤ με οπτικοακουστικό υλικό από πολλές κινηματικές δραστηριότητες στην ευρύτερη περιοχή της Αθήνας, ελπίζοντας ότι θα γίνουν ένας ακόμα κρίκος στην αλυσίδα αυτού που λέμε πληροφόριση «από τους πολίτες για τους πολίτες», ή αλλιώς «δημοσιογραφία των πολιτών».

Syntagma: The square movement in Greece from a participant’s standpoint

Saturday June 9th 2012, at 15:30, Depo center, Istanbul

Mind the Cam in cooperation with DEPO is organizing an informative event on the occasion of one year after the Syntagma square movement. The event consists of some introductions followed by an open discussion in an attempt, one year after, to outsketch the movement and its impact to more recent events in Greece and to explore the obscure, in first glimpse, relativity to the current sociopolitical situation in Turkey. The discussion will be preceded by a short length projection of multimedia material that was produced by the movement’s multimedia team, and some relative material edited by Mind the Cam.

The people that will open the discussion are:

– Lina Filopoulou, participant in the Syntagma square movement (gender group)

– Vassilis Chryssos, participant in the Syntagma square movement (MultiMedia Team), Mind the Cam

– Foti Benlisoy, the author of 21. Yüzyılın İlk Devrimci Dalgası

One year has passed since the Greek people’s uprising in Syntagma square last summer. The call from the Spanish indignados in Puerta del Sol (15M) for “real democracy now” arrived in time to spur the outbreak of the Greek people, already under harsh austerity measures for over one year. In May 25th a movement was born in Athens which was named after the Syntagma (constitution) square, where the Greek indignados set up their popular assembly, right in front of the Greek parliament. The Syntagma square assembly by becoming an example of direct democracy and participative decision-making raised the critical issue to the political scene: How can the people retake the control of decision making in today’s “democracies”?

The Syntagma movement was massive for over two months, holding popular assemblies every night where thousands of people participated, organizing numerous events on the square, calling people to demonstrate almost every Sunday and coordinating all these actions with the heartbeat of the global squares. The horizontal nature of this movement, its anti-hierarchical structure and its peaceful demonstrations made it a difficult and strange foe for the Greek government. The only way to deal with it was the way they knew and trusted: by brute violence.

By suppressing this movement the government suppressed at the same time a whole society fighting against austerity, for decent living, for a decent future. Hundreds of thousands of people participated in this grassroots movement and/or demonstrated during those months, not only on the streets of Athens, but all over the country as well. The state violence was delegitimized and thousands of people became the yeast for what was about to follow.

The following year is a year of great struggle and profound changes in the political status quo of the country, which led to the fall of the two-party system in Greece.

These days the Greek people believe in their strength. They believe that everything is possible.

Many analysts and reporters all around the world have expressed the opinion that Greece is the guinea pig for a situation that is rapidly engulfing other countries all over Europe, such as Portugal and Italy. Could this also be the case for Turkey in a few years from now?

Mind the Cam collective is a group of people that stems from the MultiMedia Team (MMT) of Syntagma square. During the events on the square MMT filmed various aspects of the movement, actions and activities that wouldn’t be shown in corporate media, and tried to build an informative channel, framed by activists of the square, that would provide grassroots photo- and video-journalism. After the Syntagma square some members of the MMT continued to feed MMT’s website with audiovisual material from many movement activities all around Athens, with the hope that it will be a ring in the chain to what we call information “from the people for the people” or “grass root journalism”.

The discussion will be held in English and Turkish.

Syntagma: Katılımcıların gözünden Yunanistan’daki meydan hareketi

9 Haziran Cumartesi, 2012, 15:30, Depo center, Istanbul

DEPO ile işbirliği içinde Mind the Cam, Syntagma meydanı hareketinin yıldönümünde bilgi verici bir etkinlik düzenliyor. Etkinlik açık bir tartışma ile devam edecek giriş niteliğinde sunumlarla, bir yılın sonunda hareketi ve onun Yunanistan’daki yeni olaylar üzerindeki etkisini tarif etmeyi ve Türkiye’deki sosyopolitik durumla ilk bakışta anlaşılmaz görünen ilişkisini incelemeyi amaçlıyor. Tartışma, hareketin multimedya ekibi tarafından hazırlanan görüntülerin ve Mind the Cam tarafından montajlanan ilgili malzemenin gösterimi ile devam edecek.

Tartışmayı açacak isimler:

– Lina Filopoulou, Syntagma meydan hareketinden (toplumsal cinsiyet grubu)

– Vassilis Chryssos, Syntagma meydan hareketinden (MultiMedia Team), Mind the Cam

– Foti Benlisoy, 21. Yüzyılın İlk Devrimci Dalgası kitabının yazarı

Yunan halkının Syntagma meydanındaki isyanının üzerinden bir yıl geçti. Puerta del Sol’daki İspanyol indignados’tan gelen “gerçek demokrasi, şimdi!” çağrısı (15M) (2011) bir yıldan uzun zamandır kemer sıkma politikalarına maruz kalan Yunan halkının isyanını teşvik etti. 25 Mayıs’ta Atina’da, adını Yunan indignados’un Yunan parlamentosu önünde halk meclisini kurduğu Syntagma (Anayasa) meydanından alan hareket başladı. Doğrudan demokrasinin ve katılımcı karar almanın bir örneği olarak Syntagma meydanı meclisi, siyaset sahnesinde şu kritik meseleyi gündeme getirdi: Bugünün “demokrasilerinde” halklar, karar alma üzerindeki kontrolü yeniden nasıl ellerine alabilirler?

Her akşam binlerce insanın katıldığı halk meclisleri toplayarak, meydanda onlarca etkinlik düzenleyerek, her Pazar insanları eyleme çağırarak ve bütün bunları küresel meydanların kalp atışlarına göre ayarlayarak Syntagma hareketi, iki aydan uzun süre muazzamdı. Hareketin yatay doğası, anti-hiyerarşik yapısı ve barışçıl gösterileri onu Yunan hükümeti için zor ve yabancı bir düşman yaptı. Onunla başetmek için tek yol, bildikleri ve güvendikleri yoldu: vahşilik, kaba kuvvet.

Hükümet bu hareketi bastırarak kemer sıkma karşısında onurlu bir hayat, onurlu bir gelecek için savaşan bütün bir toplumu da bastırdı. Yüz binlerce insan, tabandan gelen bu harekete katıldı ve/veya bu aylarda sadece Atina sokaklarından değil bütün ülkede gösteri yaptı. Devlet şiddeti gayrimeşrulaştı ve binlerce insan gelecekte olacakların mayası oldu.

Takip eden sene, Yunanistan’daki iki partili sistemin düşmesine yol açacak büyük bir mücadelenin ve ülkenin siyasi statükosunda önemli değişimlerin yılı oldu.

Bu günlerde Yunan halkı kendi gücüne inanıyor. Her şeyin mümkün olduğuna inanıyor.

Bütün dünyadan pek çok analist ve haberci, Yunanistan’ın Avrupa’daki, Portekiz ve İtalya gibi, diğer ülkeleri de hızla yutan bir durumun deneme tahtası olduğu görüşünü ifade ettiler. Önümüzdeki birkaç yıl içinde bu durum, Türkiye için de geçerli olabilir mi?

Mind the Cam, Syntagma meydanının Multimedya ekibinden çıkan bir kolektif. Meydanda olaylar olurken Multimedya ekibi hareketin çeşitli boyutlarını, şirket medyasında gösterilmeyecek hareket ve eylemleri filme aldı ve bunlar, tabandan fotoğraf ve video-gazeteciliğini sağlamak üzere meydanın aktivistleri tarafından tasarlandı. Syntagma meydanından sonra ekibin bazı üyeleri, “halk için halktan” veya “tabandan gazetecilik” dediğimiz zincirde bir halka olması umuduyla, ekibin web sitesini Atina’nın her tarafındaki hareket eylemlerinin görsel işitsel malzemesiyle beslemeye devam etti.

Tartışma İngilizce ve Türkçe olacaktır.
