This is why it is not accidental that the ministry of justice is trying to pass this legislation in the summer, in order to not have to deal with reactions not of the prisoners but also all conscious and sensitized people. The three day food abstention is only the beginning. In any case of indifference of the ministry and government, the struggle will peak with every mean. In Greece the death penalty is now called C type prisons. STRUGGLE-RESISTANCE-DIGNITY
P.S. In the greece of poverty and misery, the only solution is solidarity between people. This is why we decided that these three days that we will carry out the food abstention, that this food is offered to the homeless, poor and unemployed…
