Attack on American Chain Starbucks Upon the Visit of Pompeo to Greece

The re-arrival of a delegation of American diplomacy is a cause of war for us. That is why in the coming days we must be on the streets, where we can face the enemies of the oppressed. At the same time that the insurgent social base on the other side of the Earth is fighting against the white violence of the American war machine and inequality, the killers who organize blood-stained peacekeeping missions on the body of the planet have no place among us.

On the evening of Sunday 27-8, a few hours after the arrival of the American mission in our city, we carried out an intervention with paints and T-shirts in the trap of the American interest chain Starbucks on Nikis Avenue. We extend our solidarity with the insurgent forces that are breaking the silence and consensus in the American metropolises. The peace of the oppressed is being pursued through the international class war.

The trilateral visit of US diplomacy to Thessaloniki, Souda and Athens begins on Monday, September 28, consisting of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Undersecretary of State for Energy Francis Fanon and Undersecretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs. US Ambassador Jeffrey Payat. The meeting concerns the upgrading of bilateral cooperation between the two countries in armaments and defense personnel and the upgrading of NATO (but also purely American) military infrastructure, the joint investment activity in the energy sector and the regulation of the tension in the SE Mediterranean.

In the last year, the transnational cooperation between Greece and the USA is, as the diplomats themselves admit, at the best possible moment. The US Congress itself, through the Chair of the US House of Representatives Resource Allocation Committee, Nita Lowey, expresses the respect and appreciation that Greece enjoys as a pillar of stability in the Southeastern Mediterranean and the prospects for further deepening. cooperation between the two countries. The steady conduct of the Strategic Dialogue between the two countries concerns the joint management of security issues through the bilateral Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement (MDCA), the common counterterrorism strategy, energy and financial investments.

The government’s steady investment activity in energy development, with an obsessive emphasis on strengthening green capitalism, is Mitsotakis’ strong asset to European partners, given Greece’s geographical location (which intends to be the EU’s energy gateway). with its geophysical capabilities. On the one hand, the supply of EU gas from the Middle East through the tripartite alliance with Israel and Cyprus and on the other hand, the explosive rise in exploration of hydrocarbon and natural gas deposits in the Ionian, Crete and SE Aegean, aim to transform Greece. in an energy bridge, connecting Europe with Asia and the southern tip of the Mediterranean via pipelines such as the East Med and TAP. At the same time, in recent years the imperative shift of the European Union towards its energy development, as an awe-inspiring rival to the Russian monopoly, has set in motion of the highest national importance the investment activity of the Greek state in Renewable Energy Sources. The United States, through its NATO alliance, is seeking to take over the management of the Balkan geostrategic pillar in the European hinterland, as US diplomacy visits following the signing of an agreement between Serbia and Kosovo in Kosovo. followed by a corresponding visit to Italy, the Vatican and Croatia. The goal is for the Alexandroupolis-Kavala-Thessaloniki horizontal axis to establish the “hard borders” of American influence in Europe, behind which the countries of Eastern Europe will line up.

The investment policy concerning energy development is fully responsible for the undiminished intensity that prevails in the eastern Mediterranean, on the occasion of the research and management of wealth-producing sources. Although NATO is an overwhelming regulator of relations and tensions between members of the alliance who plan to share natural resources, the situation seems to be on a tightrope, as the pro-war climate steadily promotes activity in the eastern Mediterranean. directly interested state forces and the resulting alliances.
