Death to Euphemisms

Hey A, I have taken the liberty to edit your ‘statement’ and have replaced every time you wrote the word ‘mistake’ with the much less pleasant sounding word, but what was actually meant here, rape.

I hope this will help you realise that you still have a lot to learn and a long way to go before you can show your comrades that you have changed. Euphanisms are for politicians and people that avoid responsibility for their cruel actions.

Probably many comrades in the Greek anarchist space are aware of my political activities, political positions and attitudes, something that has shaped my activity in the Greek anarchist space over 3 years. These political positions led to political clashes with some sections of the Greek anarchist space, and in fact created many individuals, political groups and positions to look very critical toward my political activity.
For the comrades who know, I admit that I raped individuals, I raped them. I admit that I raped people. I want comrades and these individuals/groups to know, that I understandood that I raped people and already made self-criticism and regret the past. If I looked at things then as I do today, I would certainly behave differently, especially towards these individuals whom I raped. I apologize to these individuals as well as other comrades. However, we all know that rape is part of learning. It is true that I did multiple rapes but let us accept that the Greek anarchist space from foot to head is full of rooted rapes. Instead of blaming me for everything and using me like a toilet paper to clean your hands, you should face your hands. What is not found in Greek anarchist movement or is found very rarely is self-criticism. In fact, this is one of the main reasons for the existence of rape and problems of Greek anarchist space, which is cultural. I am sure we will meet again, maybe in the prisons or the struggle, surely that time I will blame myself more then for not being able to fulfill my responsibilities as I should. Maybe if I could do the responsibilities that were given to me, my comrades would not be in such a difficult situation today, and I am also to blame for your hard life, and I accept that responsibility. In the past my irresponsibility, lying to my comrades telling them I did not rape people, dealt a heavy blow to the struggle. In some cases, it even sabotaged the struggle. Some of these things may be unforgivable, at least I can not forgive myself. Some comrades and political groups gave me everything, but I was not committed enough. It was selfish and my stupidity, I apologize for such behaviors. The life and especially the political life of a person who comes to the West at age of 18 after spending a year and a half in prison could be full of them raping people. I want the movement to see the rapes I did more deeply, than one person being targeted and blamed for the lack of political experience and lack of information about the political/cultural standards of west. It is a fact that in addition to many rapes I did in my political life, I have brought many achievements and struggles to the movement. I believe we shouldn’t ignore all these struggles and achievements just because of the rapes I did. Comrades, have you achieved all your political experience without raping people? Haven’t any of you raped people in your very youngest? I apologize to comrades that themselves and their struggles was hurt by me, I ask these comrades to forgive me. These rapes were based on not having enough political experience and not knowing enough about the political / cultural standards of the Greek anarchist movement. I am deeply sorry and I want them to know that I have learned from my rapes. This is the culture of bourgeois justice that only punish us, I ask the movement to instead of punishing me, create a process for me so I can show to my comrades that I have been learned and changed. I know some damage may be irreparable, but I still hope to be forgiven and show that I have changed in many ways. I want my comrades to judge me for who I am today, rather than a 20-year-old rapist. Forgiveness for rape does not mean irresponsibility for them, I am ready to take responsibility for raping people.
