On April 4th 2015, the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire prisoners announced the end of their hunger strike, anticipating that the mother and the partner of Gerasimos Tsakalos will soon be released from prison. Below are excerpts from their statement.
Today’s a day that a crack opens up in the walls of the prison world surrounding us. After 32 days of hunger strike, the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and Gerasimos’ life companion will shortly exit prison and be free again. (…)
This victory has not resulted only from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire hunger strike. It is a victory of so many people in solidarity, who have broken the social tranquility with arson attacks, occupations, acts of sabotage, demonstrations, protest gatherings, unwarned interventions, and transformed the cities into a field of insurrectional moments and the occupied buildings into living laboratories of subversive situations. (…)
Today we end the hunger strike, having beaten the scarecrows of Power that wanted our relatives imprisoned. NEVERTHELESS, a hunger strike among the rest of the political prisoners is currently underway having put forward broader demands. The coming days are critical both for their health and the wager of overall anarchic struggle. (…)
STRENGTH AND SOLIDARITY to the anarchist comrade Nikos Maziotis, member of the Revolutionary Struggle, and the Network of Imprisoned Fighters.
