The last two years, the number of political prisoners in the prisons of the Greek State has increased rapidly, while dozens of activists of all tendencies have been arrested, accused either for participation in the revolutionary organizations that were active in the previous period, or for their general anti-systemic action.
One of those is Stella Antoniou, who was arrested on December 4th, 2010. The anarchist comrade was already facing a serious health problem, which has dangerously worsened during the last year of her incarceration. On January 4th, 2012, she will submit an application for release from prison, in order to receive the appropriate medical care before her condition becomes irreversible.
As a minimum act of solidarity, we have started from today, December 30th, 2011, an abstention from prison meals, which will last until the date of her application submission for release —on January 4th, 2012.
Georgiadis Polykarpos, Giannis Dimitrakis, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Konstantina Karakatsani, Kostas Katsenos, Christos Kolentinis, Dimitris Koufontinas, Alexandros Mitroussias, Kostas Sakkas, Rami Syrianos, Dimitris Fessas
Due to delayed communication, the comrade Simos Seisidis is not able to participate in the abstention, but he supports the protest action.
Also, Stella Antoniou abstains from prison food.
