Greek prisons: Anarchist prisoners on hunger and thirst strike in Koridallos

As of Friday, December 13, 2013 anarchist prisoners Fivos Harisis, Argyris Ntalios, Yannis Michailidis, Dimitris Politis and Giorgos Karagiannidis are on hunger and thirst strike after their disciplinary transfer for assaulting a jailer —read their open letter here.

Currently the five of them are isolated in the disciplinary section of the 3rd wing in Koridallos, while comrades Yannis Naxakis and Babis Tsilianidis were transferred to the 4th wing, and comrade Grigoris Sarafoudis to the 5th wing (the latter was brought to the 4th wing on 14/12).

All eight were previously at the 1st wing of the same prison, alongside other captive anarchists. The prison administration is trying to break up their community on the inside.

On Saturday, December 14, anarchist Babis Tsilianidis joined the struggle, and went on hunger and thirst strike, too.

The six hunger and thirst strikers demand the return of themselves and the other two comrades to the 1st wing in Koridallos men’s prison, and they salute the ongoing struggle of hunger strikers Spyros Stratoulis (in Larissa), Rami Syrianos (in Domokos), Ergün Mustafa (in Malandrino) and Michalis Ramadanoglou (in Grevena).

More updates as they come.
