Greece prisoner hunger strike suspended

Stencil painted during PA’s gathering in the proximity of Koridallos prison, in Athens on the 1st of July, referring to prisoner Ilir Kareli (murdered by prison staff after his transfer from Malandrino to Nigrita), who stabbed a prison guard to death with an improvised knife: “A good start was made in Malandrino prison; every torturer should get his throat slashed.”

According to an announcement by an initiative of the Prison Struggle Committee, the nationwide mass hunger strike against the bill on maximum security prisons has been suspended as of Tuesday, July 1st. Most of the inmates, who participated in the strike from the 23rd of June, are now gathering strength to continue their mobilization in Greek prisons with other means.
