Athens: Anarchist Kostas Sakkas on hunger strike from the 4th of June 2013

On Tuesday, June 4th, at 18.30, comrades call for a political discussion at the Athens Polytechnic School, in the Gini building, towards organizing solidarity actions for hunger striker Kostas Sakkas. There will also be telephone communication with the comrade, who will speak directly from Koridallos prison.

Kostas is an anarchist prisoner that currently stands two trials underway against the R.O. CCF, although he has denied his participation in the same anarchist urban guerrilla group from the moment of his arrest (December 2010.). The comrade has been kept in pretrial incarceration 30 months already. Recently, the State prolonged his pretrial incarceration for another 6 months (and applied the same measure against anarchist Gerasimos Tsakalos, admitted member of the R.O. CCF).

Anarchist Kostas Sakkas is on hunger strike from the 4th of June 2013 protesting the extension of his pre-trial detention, and demanding his immediate release from prison.
