On Monday 20/5 many comrades made a coordinated traffic sabotage at some of the most central streets of Athens. We barricaded with burning trash-bins and blocked the traffic ar Patission, Kokkinopoulou and Iera Odos streets, as a gesture of solidarity with the revolutionary Dimitris Koufontinas, who has been on hunger strike since 2/5, demanding the repeal of the prosecutor’s veto and the immediate grant of furloughs.
The whole judicial complex unleashes its fury and its harshness against the specific political prisoner, because from the beginning of his activity until now he has shown consistency on his struggle and his values. Simultaneously, the pressure that the greek state receives both in an internal level from the well-known family of Bakogiannis, and also in the level of external politics from USA, intensifies the repression
and obstructs the detention conditions of D. Koufontinas. A big part of the social fabric, driven by the dominant bourgeois mindset that wants “law and order” and a normal and unimpeded flow of their daily lives,
embodies all of its suffering on the face of D. Koufontinas.
Continuous struggle until the end, near Dimitris Koufontinas
Immediate repeal of prosecutor’s veto Furloughs now for Dimitris Koufontinas
