On the 25th of June, the council of appellate judges rejected the motion of Kostas Sakkas. At the same time that judges ratified his prolonged pretrial incarceration for another 6 months, a treating physician from the general hospital of Nikaia reported that the anarchist hunger striker has lost 10kg of weight.
A demonstration for the immediate release of Kostas Sakkas has been called for Saturday the 29th of June, by 11.30am, at Monastiraki Square in Athens. The solidarity assembly’s poster reads: ‘2.5 years imprisoned without trial. The comrade puts his body on the line to resist the modern totalitarianism of the State and Capital. His struggle is a struggle of the whole movement, a struggle of all the oppressed.’
