Huge prison-struggle in Greece is hitting its 4th day:

Below are the hunger strikers (per prison) who continue to participate in the nationwide mobilization against the operation of a Greek Guantanamo in Domokos prison:

Koridallos (Athens): 1,480 prisoners
Patras: 550 prisoners
Grevena: 400 prisoners
Larissa: 330 prisoners
Domokos: 300 prisoners
Chania (Crete): 280 prisoners
Nigrita (Serres): 200 prisoners
Amfissa: 200 prisoners
Corfu: 120 prisoners
Trikala: 120 prisoners
Malandrino: 120 prisoners
Avlonas: 100 juvenile prisoners
Kos: 60 prisoners
Corinth: 50 prisoners
Nafplion: 50 prisoners
In Alikarnassos (Crete), all inmates abstain from prison food.

Also, on June 26th, another court session at Koridallos was interrupted, because all of the CCF imprisoned members on trial are currently on hunger strike against the fascist bill of the ministry of Justice.

In the coming days, the State is promoting the passage of a draft bill related to the creation of special detention conditions, the new ‘Type C Prisons’. The bill provides for a series of reforms intended to impose further control and oppression on ‘dangerous’ prisoners.

The struggle against the imposition of these new living conditions has already begun inside and outside the walls of prisons. Since Monday, June 23rd thousands of inmates in various prisons of Greece have gone on a mass hunger strike to demand the repeal of this new legislative bill. Polymorphous actions of solidarity stand as a crucial complement to this struggle.

This historical moment must not find us inconsistent but instead ready and determined to combat both this specific bill and each condition of incarceration and suppression that we have tolerated so far; standing against the State/Capital, much as we stand by the side of imprisoned fighters.

In the context of this struggle, on Wednesday evening, June 25th two groups of comrades acted in a coordinated manner and went out to Olympiados and Grigoriou Lambraki streets, in Thessaloniki, where we erected barricades to block the traffic, after we poured gasoline on tires and trash bins and torched them.

See you in the streets, until the total destruction of prisons.

Greece: Update regarding the monstrous bill on maximum security prisons

After some modifications to the draft bill on maximum security prisons, the recess section of the Greek Parliament is now prepared to vote on this new law on Monday, July 7th. Perhaps it will take another summer session for the final voting, but their plan is to pass the bill no matter what… A protest gathering, supported also by anarchists, against the passage of the ‘prison reform bill’ will take place on Monday 7/7, at 18:00 in Syntagma Square, Athens.

Prisoners throughout Greece have quit their mass hunger strike since the 1st of July, promising other forms of protest on the inside (we don’t have related info as of yet).

One can never know what the fucking minister of Justice, Charalambos Athanasiou, will submit at the last minute, but according to updates so far, main modifications are supposed to be as follows:

- initial incarceration period in Type C prison units for recalcitrant inmates: (from 4 years to) 2 years;

- initial incarceration period in Type C prison units for inmates convicted to over 12 years for terrorism (article 187A of the Greek penal code), and for inmates convicted to over 15 years for criminal organization (article 187 of the Greek penal code): (from 10 years to) 4 years.

It is said that prisoners remanded on terrorism charges (under article 187A), who are still awaiting trial (not yet convicted), will also be sent to Type C prison units.

It is still a fact that inmates locked up in Type C prison units won’t have the right to furlough (days of leave from the prison).

Even if “dangerous” inmates serve 4 full years in a Type C prison, the incarceration period can be extended by prison prosecutors to 2 more years (when these prisoners are not “well-behaved”, or suddenly have further “incriminating indications” presented against them, etc.); when the additional 2 years are over, their incarceration in a Type C prison can be prolonged again to another 2-year period, and so forth…

This is all we can transmit for the time being.

Solidarity with prisoners of the State/Capital. Destroy all prisons!
