Digging for Antiquities in Rural Aleppo
Syria
By Anwar Mohamed
30 Nov 2014

Aleppo, Syria
November 30, 2014

An intimate look into the daily lives of several young men scrounging for objects of archaeological value in the countryside of Aleppo province, Syria. Though both the interviewed men and the specific area in which they are digging for archaeological remnants remain unknown and anonymous, the men delve into their motives for unearthing whatever objects they can find: first to support themselves and second, to support the revolution. To do so, they must contact potential buyers in Turkey (who serve as middle men for selling further abroad); locate particular objects of value; avoid digging in areas under control of rival groups, factions and parties; and avoid the ploys of other smugglers and diggers to keep them from locating certain valuable objects (by using decoys).

Soundbites

(Arabic, man) (01:24-01:29) We're very poor, so poor that we cannot even afford bread. That is the situation of each person who works in artifacts.

(Arabic, man) (04:21-04:31) We are hoping to find gold, so we can use it to support the revolution. We have been here for three days.

(Arabic, man) (04:32-04:39) We are here to look for gold because we do not have work, or anything.

(Arabic, man) (04:40-06:22) Interviewer: if you find gold, what do you do with it?

We export it to Turkey, and then there are people in Turkey who sell it to other countries.

Interviewer: what do you wish to do with gold or artifacts if you find any?

I wish to use them to improve our living conditions, to support the revolution, and to help those poor families who cannot even afford food. Personally, for myself, I wish to buy a house, help my family and help all the poor. Half of the people here are not working. We want to support them and support the FSA.

Interviewer: when you find artifacts and sell them, don't you feel guilty that you are taking something which is not yours and selling it?

Those things do not belong to anyone, we dig and work for months and hardly get anything, so I do not think it is wrong, and these are old things.

We are working very hard to get them; previously we weren't able to drill, but here it is easier. The FSA are good people, but when the regime was in control, we could not do this work because whoever got caught would be executed.

(Arabic, man) (06:31-06:37) The tools that we use are very basic, the shovel, the fork and other similar tools

(Arabic, man) (06:50-07:30) We have been working very hard for three months to find gold or artifacts, and until now, have found nothing. We hope to improve our situation, maybe buy a house or a car, because our current situation is very bad, and maybe we can help the poor.

(Arabic, man) (09:15-10:52) We took pictures of this statue and sent it to foreign merchants, but they were not interested. They said they wanted the treasury that contains the gold. However, we cannot get the treasury because it is buried in a mountain where we cannot go, it is an area controlled by a certain party. They saw the picture and did not want it. They wanted the gold. They told us that they used to place statues like that so that when someone found it, he would think it was the treasure and would stop searching for the gold. They did not want it, they wanted the gold.

(Arabic, man) (10:55-11:57) I am Abu Omar, I work with an archeologist, we found this in a grotto, this is a part of a mosaic floor, it is about 2000 years old. We do not have told to take out properly, so it broke into many pieces. This can be sold for almost 50,000$, but now after it all broke. it is no longer worth anything.

The Greek return to the land 01

Dimitris, 32, spent his youth fighting against Greek police in the streets of Exarchia, Athens’ anarchist neighborhood. When the 16-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos was killed by an armed policeman in 2008, the whole city became inflamed. “For two month, I didn’t sleep; Athens looked like under a civil war. But I was mature enough to come here and start my life again. First I felt guilty towards my friends, but now I know that I took the right decision”, says the apple and olive producer in his field of apple trees in Pelion, a natural paradise in the north of Athens.

It is a tradition there. But since I live here, I had the opportunity to really deepen and experiment this savoir-faire", she says. "The return to the land is a return to the tradition, as well as a post-modern phenomena", confirms Kasimis Charalambos.

HOMELESSNESS IN ATHENS
Athens, Greece
By Mais Istanbuli
17 Dec 2012

The deep economic crisis that grabbed the Greek society for over 4 years causing a huge impact on Greek Citizens.

The Greek government, with the IMF's help, officially states that the unemployment have reached 28 percent, which many people find unbelievable. A big increase in taxes, public transport fees, and salaries, along with the reduction of public spending in social welfare cost many of people loose their homes, their jobs, and in some cases their lives.

Before the crisis, most of the homeless population in Greece consisted of either alcoholics, illegal drug users, or former prisoners.

Now-a-days, the homeless population consists of people with diplomas and foreign language speakers, who in a very few months have seen their lives change forever.

NGOs such as the Medicines san Frontier officially stated that Greece looks more like a war zone than a peaceful country, due to the humanitarian crisis it's facing.

Immigrants and local citizens are overcrowding the NGOs' offices and clinics asking for the simplest medicine and food. There are public cases of cancer patients who are unable to get treatment due to the government's decision to impose a 25 Euro fee as hospital entry for all patients.

Anarchist Labor Unions Call Strike (7...

31 Oct 2012

October 31, 2012, Barcelona, Spain. The CGT and CNT anarchist labor unions called a 24 hour strike. The day of action is in defense of public services and a protest against social cuts and unemployment. They also complain that salaries in Spain are the lowest in Europe while the unemployment rate is the highest: it is over the 25% of the population and in the case of young people under the age of 25 the rate goes up to 52%. Considering this economic context they also criticize the rising taxes such as the VAT.

The protests started at noon in Plaza de Catalunya. From there people went to places like the AppStore in Plaza de Catalunya and the FNAC. After, they went into a Zara store. There was a tense moment as one of the approximately 300 protesters had taken a mannequin and had thrown items on the floor of the store. The people that caused the accident were a group of fifty hooded individuals; CGT claims not to be involved.

La jornada de lucha se hace en protesta contra los recortes sociales, el paro y en defensa de los servicios públicos.

Con todo este contexto económico, critican la subida de impuestos como el IVA.
Las protestas de esta jornada han comenzado a mediodía en la plaza de Catalunya. Desde allí se dirigieron a establecimientos como la AppStore de la plaza de Cataluña y también la FNAC. Después han ido a una tienda de Zara, donde se han vivido algunos momentos de tensión cuando algunos de los cerca de 300 manifestantes han tomado un maniquí y han lanzado por tierra algunas prendas del establecimiento. Los autores del incidente han sido un grupo de una cincuentena de personas encapuchadas de las cuales la CGT se ha desmarcado totalmente.
