Today, 23/11/11 around 7pm, 100 of us gathered outside Nigrita prisons in Serres (northern greece). We remained there for just over an hour while chants were shouted, a sound system and microphone were set up and fire works were thrown. Our aim was to give a bit of strength to comrade Rami Syrianos, who is there in the isolation cells and a loud message to the correctional service of Nigrita prisons.
The text that was read out from the microphone:
‘On Friday 11/11, comrade Rami Syrianos was transferred from Ioannina prisons where he has been kept since his arrest, to Diavata prisons. During his entrance there he denied to go through the demeaning process of internal body check, which resulted in him getting a ten day disciplinary punishment and a disciplinary transfer.
Because of this incident, on Wednesday 16/11, we gathered outside Diavata prisons, in solidarity for about an hour. The next morning, our comrade was transferred here, to Nigrita prisons in Serres.
During his entrance here as well, he was asked to remove his clothes and underwear, something he denied to do one more time.
The next day he got another disciplinary punishment and was sent to another ten days in isolation. There, after a few minutes, he was visited by the sergeant of Nigrtia prisons along with two of his lackeys, who in the beginning tried to convince him with words to strip in front of them and after realizing that their attempts are futile, they started to pull on him until they managed to get his underwear off.
With these sleazy tactics, the sergeant of Nigrita prisons, Domokos prison and any other prison, attempt to convince of the alleged inevitability of obeying to their vices and the subjugation to the condition of imprisonment and isolation.
They should put it well in their heads, that whatever means they might use, they will always crash into the wall of the dignity of fighters.
So let this unite with the dynamic solidarity of the fighters outside the walls and let the decisive battle for the destruction of every prison begin’
KEEP YOUR LIMBS OF OUR COMRADES
NO COMRADE ALONE IN THE HANDS OF THE STATE
SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON
