Solidarity standing against barbarism



Solidarity standing against barbarism

When we begun the effort to collect medicines for Gaza, along with Fair Planet who had the original idea, we could not imagine the gigantic and immediate response from people all over Greece (and not only, as we received drugs even from Turin, Italy!). This effort could not have reached the heights it did without substantial aid from Solidarity for All, Red FM, the Coordinating Committee of Social Clinics and Pharmacies in Attica and dozens of other solidarity collectives from Attica and throughout Greece, that really created a solidarity miracle.

Medicines were collected during two concerts that took place in Athens and dozens of other events all over Greece. We are only uploading a few pictures of some of them. The commitment, the efficient organization and the enthusiasm of the people who helped is really exemplary. It is also a good reason to be happy that our society, despite all this brutality imposed by the economic crisis during the past six years, still has many reserves of solidarity left, not only for our countrymen, but also for our suffering friends in Palestine.

Although the Clinic was scheduled to close for two weeks, a group of MKIE and Fair Planet volunteers and of fellow citizens who responded to the call for help, are working ceaselessly to check all the medications that are to be sent to Gaza. At the same time another group of our volunteers (MKIE) works inside our "closed" pharmacy so that large quantities of drugs that we have enough of, are given for the same purpose. It is a difficult and demanding job, but it is necessary and our volunteers do it with great joy and enthusiasm.

A long human chain across Greece collects, checks and prepares medicines, in order to send them to Gaza.

Once again thank you all for your love and your immediate response, that each time (!) far exceeds our expectations and gives us strength to continue with even bigger projects and goals.

Important note: We apologize in advance in case we forgot to mention someone who has helped a lot with the whole effort, but there are so many collectives and individual citizens that have helped us, that we would have to devote several days to record each and every one.
