Solidarity banner in Kavala, northern Greece (13/3/2015), reading: “Struggle until the last prison is torn down. Freedom for political prisoners: DAK – CCF – type C – fighters from Turkey. Hunger strike since 2/3.”

On March 16th 2015, two more participants in the Network of Imprisoned Fighters (DAK by its initials in Greek), anarchists Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos and Dimitris Politis, went on hunger strike requesting the fulfillment of demands already set by DAK. They specifically demand that articles 187 and 187A of the Greek penal code, the hoodie law, type C prisons law, the prosecutorial provision of forcible taking of DNA samples be abolished; generally, that the processing and use of genetic material be limited; and that Savvas Xiros be released from prison so that he can receive needed medical treatment.

In a joint statement, the comrades have sent their strength to all other hunger strikers in Greek prisons.
