Anarchist demonstration at Koridallos prisons, in Athens, on the night of December 14:


As of Sunday, December 15, 2013 seven anarchist prisoners are on hunger and thirst strike at Koridallos.

Specifically, Fivos Harisis, Argyris Ntalios, Yannis Michailidis, Dimitris Politis and Giorgos Karagiannidis find themselves on hunger and thirst strike already since the 13th of December, Babis Tsilianidis conducts the same strike since the 14th, and Grigoris Sarafoudis joined them on the 15th of December.

The 7 hunger and thirst strikers demand the return of themselves and Yannis Naxakis to the 1st wing of Koridallos men’s prison.

Over the last hours, many gestures and activities of solidarity have been expressed across the territory controlled by the Greek State. Additionally, gatherings were scheduled for December 15th outside the prison of Diavata near Thessaloniki, at the prison of Aghios Stefanos in Patras, and another demo in front of Koridallos prisons, as well as counter-informative assemblies in the Athens Polytechnic School in Exarchia, and at Evangelismos squat in the city of Heraklion, on Crete.

Anarchists Tasos Theofilou, Alexandros Mitroussias, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos and Stefanos Amilitos (all incarcerated in the 1st wing of Koridallos), as well as imprisoned comrade Elias Karadouman (on Corfu Island) have released open letters in immediate solidarity with the strikers.

Comrades Spyros Stratoulis, Rami Syrianos, Ergün Mustafa and Michalis Ramadanoglou—who conduct hunger strike since November in four different prisons, fighting to vindicate the demands of Spyros Stratoulis—have published a joint communiqué in solidarity with the 7 anarchist strikers in Koridallos.

Every passing minute is extremely crucial for the 7 comrades who are currently on hunger and thirst strike. Therefore, we call for maximum dissemination of their struggle beyond borders.

Stand with the anarchist community in Greek prisons!
