Greece: Saturday, March 6, 2021. 2nd International day of solidarity with the hunger strike of Dimitris Koufontinas.

video 3/3/2021 Athens, Thousands of protesters flood the centre of Athens for the third day in a row.

Saturday, March 6, 2021. 2nd International day of solidarity with the hunger strike of Dimitris Koufontinas.
At the end of last December the Greek government approved a reform of the national penitentiary system that, in addition to  other measures that worsen prison conditions, establishes that those convicted of terrorism cannot access the “rural prisons”, more “open” institutions to which long-term prisoners have access. The approval of this law has immediately activated the bureaucratic process for the transfer of Dimitri Koufontinas from the rural prison of Kassevitia.Dimitri is a comrade convicted for participation in the revolutionary organization 17 November, in prison since 2002.
The new package of laws stipulates that inmates in rural prisons are reclassified and then transferredto the last prison they were in. In Dimitri’s case it should have been the Athenian prison of Koridallos. However, the prison administration decided to transfer him, manipulating the transfer papers, to Domokos prison. Although there are no differentiated circuits in Greece, the intention of the prison administration in recent years has been to make this prison a “hard” prison.
Such a punitive transfer is purposed to hit a comrade who has always struggled: as a free man, in courtrooms, in prison. Since his seizure he has participated in numerous protests and has undertakenfour hunger strikes.This repressive manoeuvre not only is aimed at annihilating Dimitri Koufontinas but also is part of the overall Greek state repressive project: crushing the most radical and combative parts of society to avoid the hypothesis of future and general conflicts.
Faced with the transfer, Dimitri Koufontinas decided to strive once again, putting his own body out as last resort weapon. Since 8 January he has started a hunger strike which will continue indefinitelyuntil he is transferred to the Koridallos prison.As strike days are passing by, the comrade is in a critical and precarious conditions in the Lamia hospital: according to the doctors he could collapse at any moment.
During the strike there were many initiatives and solidarity actions throughout Greece and beyond: protests, demos, walls writings, banners, attacks against multiple objectives (politicians, banks, postoffices, etc.).But time is running out and now we think we should make an extra effort.
Dimitri’s struggle is also the struggle of each of us. As we consider crucial creating and expanding international ties, even more nowadays, we are calling for a 2nd INTERNATIONAL day of solidarity and action on SATURDAY 6 MARCH to support Dimitris  Koufontinas.

Attack against the Greek embassy in Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Time is running out.
On 02.03.2021 we attacked the Greek embassy in Frankfurt am Main with bitumen, to express our solidarity with the revolutionary Dimitris
Koufontinas.
Since its reelection 2019, the governing party Nea Dimokratia, tries to
enforce an extremely authoritarian agenda. Among the shades of the Corona pandemic, it established a variety of repressive laws, while trying to criminalize and stifle any kind of protest. Among many others are the abolition of the University Asylum, the attempt to establish a campus police force, more repression against leftists and anarchists. Instead of investing in the health sector, that got ruined by austerity measures, the government prefers to invest massively in new weapons and training of cops and the army. Of course not without favoring their own party members and friends.
The law that made D. Koufontinas start his hunger strike is simply
motivated by vengeance. The family of the primary minister Kyriakos
Mitsotakis was affected themselves by attacks of the 17N. Attacks that D. Koufontinas claimed responsibility for. Since 2003 he continues his
political struggle in prison. The new law says that prisoners, convicted
for terrorism, shall be transferred to high security prisons.
For D. Koufontinas, captivated since 2003, this means a significant
worsening of detention conditions.

In a time of pandemic, in a murderous State, which has chosen not to waste a single euro on health, children, transportation and that would help society against the virus but to give millions to cops, the army and of course the main pillars and its supporters (channels, shipowners and industrialists).
The same junta State is assassinating the revolutionary militant Dimitris Koufontinas, disobeying the photographic law that they made and determined to avenge the militant’s action and the historical legacy he has left. For our part, we will not allow such a thing.
Finally, let us say here that your police force does not touch us at all and that if Dimitris Koufontinas is assassinated, such actions will become your daily routine.
ps:  Quiet cities burn beautifully.

Once again we are bringing all our solidarity to the prisoners locked up in jail where a year ago 9 people were murdered during revolts and transfers to other prisons.
8TH MARCH 11PM – MINISTRY OF JUSTICE, VIA ARENULA, ROME
In March 2020 the State carried out a massacre in dozens of prisons all over Italy. The decisions that led to it came from above, from the Ministry of Justice. It is there that we want to vent our anger, reach that place in every city to send their responsibilities back to whom they belong.
A year has passed since that 8th of March 2020, when, as the streets were emptying because of government orders imposing “Stay at home!” on everyone, inside the jails in Italy and many countries in the world, those who were locked up cried out their anger and fear. The revolts and the forms of protest were many.

4 February 2021, a hearing was held following the end of the 6-month investigation period decreed during the arrest of the compas Mónica and Francisco, in July 2020. They are accused of sending explosive packages to the 54e commissariat and the former Minister of the Interior Rodrigo Hinzpetter, as well as the double explosive attack against the real estate company Tanica, in Vitacura.

During the hearing the Prosecutor pointed out that there were still some stages in the current investigation, and asked for 6 more months for investigations. The defence opposed it, but in the end the 11th Chamber of the Civil Liberties Court accepted the prosecution’s request: the investigation remains open for another 6 months.

At the same hearing there was a review of the preventive detention of Francisco; finally it was maintained and, after a few days, the Court of Appeal ratified it.
On February 10 the detention review hearing was held for the companion Mónica; it too has been maintained.

Crete island ,Greece : Riot police attacks, but faced with determined protesters, is forced to retreat (Koufodinas)

Heraklion, Crete: While people in “democracies” around the world have rights, like the right to protest or the right to freedom of assembly, the right to freedom of association, or the right to freedom of speech, in Greece, where the proud self-proclaimed democrats boast that it is the place where democracy was born, no such rights exist anymore, the greek right-wing government has quickly but steadily, in just one year and half, delved into neo-fascism .
The vast majority of the protests all over Greece, in solidarity to the hunger striker Dimitris Koufodinas, have been attacked, without even an excuse, as soon as people started to gather by scores of riot policemen trying to spread fear and terror amongst those that dared to raise their voices and their feasts in the air to protest the prisoner’s imminent death.

Assumption of responsibility for the installation of incendiary devices – Thessaloniki

by anarchists:  Translated by Act for freedom now!
28/02/2021
The only thing that matters is the struggle—now, today, tomorrow; whether you eat or not, what matters is that you make a leap forward. Do better. Learn from your experience. That is what must be done. All the rest is shit.
“The people (meaning: us), who refuse to stop struggling—either they win or they die, instead of losing and dying.”
I’m sorry I have to write to you like this. Of course I do not know what it is like when someone dies or when they kill. After all, everyone dies. The issue is how you die and even more how you lived (…) A revolutionary in battle, with all his love for life and all his contempt for death. ”
Holger Meins
(RAF member, dead from hunger strike)
Fifty-two days have passed since the revolutionary Dimitris Koufontinas once again put his body in front of the regime of exclusion and criminal treatment, starting a hunger strike. Not to claim, blackmailing as they usually say, the satisfaction of his personal demands but if nothing else the basic right of his transfer to Korydallos prison.
The revenge of the repressive mechanisms and power’s fear in the face of militants is the springboard for the toughest resistance battles of State prisoners. The revolutionary D. Koufontinas mortgaged his body as a means of resisting State arbitrariness in order to be able to claim basic rights, putting his dignity above his own life. And as long as the State ostentatiously insists on maintaining an uncompromising stance, trying to extract statements of political repentance, it forgets that fighters like D. Koufontinas will always win the first even if they have to lose the second.

We are going through critical times in the life of the hunger and thirst striker Dimitris Koufontinas, under the responsibility of the N.D. government that is vindictively exterminating a prisoner because he is its political opponent.
We held today at noon 28/02 together with comrades and fellow residents a rally of protest and support of his request, in Agia Paraskevi square and Mesogeion Avenue, as well as a neighbourhood march of about 60 people, stating that we will not accept, as part of the new authoritarian normality, the death of a hunger striker.
The democratically vindictive police forces, after the end of the march, indulged in checks and fines of the people for suspicion of participating in a march, ordered by GADA, and not for protection from the pandemic.
For an immediate solution to his request with the transfer of Koufontina to Korydallos!

Taking responsibility Thessaloniki on 27/2/21
28/02/2021
Wanting to add another moment of attack to those that have taken place in the last month and fill us with strength and courage, in the early hours of Sunday 27/2 we chose to place an incendiary device in a personal military vehicle located in the centre of Thessaloniki.
It is a fact that all States exert vengeance against the internal enemy, that is, the fighters who fight in class antagonisms, and State violence. It is also known that in the case of the revolutionary D. Koufontina we are not only talking about the formal and structural austerity of States against militants, since here there is a personal attitude on the part of the bourgeois Mitsotaki colossus towards the figure of the revolutionary.
For this reason, abolishing all notions of the “civil rule of law”, they passed a photographic law according to which the comrade should be transferred from the rural prisons where he was previously held to Korydallos prison. However, they were not satisfied there either, since, tearing up even their own revenge law, they kidnapped him overnight and transferred him to Domokou prison instead of Korydallos, where he had been serving his sentence from the beginning.
Against the wishes and aspirations of the bourgeoisie and the government, prisoners and detainees have rights that have been won through blood-soaked struggles. The only “special treatment” for Koufontina against the government’s ridiculous narrative concerns the cutting of his licenses and his continued torture by the Greek State and the American embassy.
Koufontinas, a hunger striker from 8/1, claims the implementation of the revenge law anyway. With the hunger strike, with his political course, with his constant refusal to renounce armed struggle, with his action, his speech and his revolutionary ethics, his struggle has already been won, since he has illuminated with stubbornness, perseverance, smiles, pain, defeats and victories the consciences of all those who stand on the right side of the barricade, namely the poor, the immigrant women, the thieves, the invisible and the persecuted. Wanting to add another moment of attack to those that have taken place in the last month and filled us with strength and courage, in the early hours of Sunday 27/2 we chose to place an incendiary device in a personal military vehicle located in the centre of Thessaloniki. This text does not intend to explain the role of the army and the police as mechanisms of support for the bourgeois, guarding their privileges from the wrath of the proletarians and we will not expand further. We call on the world of struggle to reflect on the condition that is being formed for the working class and to make all the moves necessary for its organization and counterattack.
TO BREAK THE EXEMPTION REGIME FOR POLITICAL PRISONERS
DO NOT ALLOW THE NORMALIZATION OF STATE AND CAPITALISTIC BARBARITY
TO ORGANIZE THE COUNTER-ATTACK FROM BELOW!
PS: This attack is dedicated to Kyriakos Evaggelou who ended his life by diving into the void as a result of the unbearable psychological pressure exerted on him by senior officers during his term.

28/02/2021
In the early hours of Sunday 28/2 we chose to attack multiple capitalist targets in the area of ​​Paleo Faliro. These attacks were made in solidarity with the hunger striker from 8/1 and thirst from 22/2, Dimitris Koufontinas.
Specifically, we attacked by breaking the facades of the following stores on El. Venizelou Street:
  • Adidas
  • Athlete’s Foot
  • Biomedicine
  • Eurobank
  • Factory Outlet
  • Funky Buddha
  • Intersport
On the one hand, these movements are acts of political support for the hunger and thirst strike, pieces in the mosaic of multifaceted actions that have been taking place lately, while on the other hand, they constitute a minimal part of the social anti-virus of  ‘below’ against the State and bosses.

The hours are counting down for the life of the fighter Dimitris Koufontinas.
As a minimal sign of solidarity we chose to take the official website of New Democracy on 28/2 at 16:00, while access to the page has not yet been restored.
The political prisoner Dimitris Koufontinas, who has been on hunger strike for 50 days and is now on thirst, is only demanding the implementation of the law. Time is running out and the government’s revenge stance does not seem to be shifting a minimum. The political prisone, already punished by the civil rule of law, is slowly and torturously led to death.
WE DEMAND IMMEDIATE SATISFACTION of his self-evident and legal request for transfer to Korydallos prison.
THE DEATH of a hunger striker is also the DEATH of YOUR “DEMOCRACY”.
The Mitsotakis government is solely responsible for what happens from now on.
And then .. YOU WILL FIND US IN FRONT OF YOU ..

Dimitris Koufontinas continues until justification or death
 CONTRA
28/02/2021 4:16 pm
The anesthesiologist-intensivist Katerina Douzepi, doctor of the choice of Dimitris Koufontinas, visited today the hunger and thirst striker in the ICU of the General Hospital, Lamia. In a phone call we had with her, she told us the following:
  1. Dimitris Koufontinas is obviously emaciated and depressed, but he has complete clarity and states that he is determined to continue until the end, whatever that is. “I do not want to die, but given the situation, they leave me no choice,” he said.
  2. When the doctor pointed out that stopping the antibiotic would lead to a recurrence of the infection, he replied that this was his decision and he insisted on it.
  3. His doctor explained the enormous dangers of the thirst strike. Since our body is 70% water, damage to the brain and heart occurs more quickly and is more serious. They can be irreversible or even death. Dimitris Koufontinas told her that he does not want to become a burden to his family or the movement, carrying permanent damage that will occur after a recovery. That is why he told the ICU doctors – as well as his family – that if he loses contact with the environment, he does not want to be resuscitated . His concern is to ensure that his will is respected by doctors.
  4. Katerina Douzepi confirms that the ICU doctors have not performed any medical operation without the will of the hunger and thirst striker (we remind you that this was confirmed yesterday, in a telephone conversation).
  5. Finally, the doctor told us that he considers unacceptable the presence of uniformed police officers in the vestibule of the ICU, inside the Unit. Her colleagues told her that this happens every time a detainee is admitted to the ICU, but this fact is still unacceptable, not only for ethical reasons (not only detainees but also other patients are treated in the ICU), but also for medical reasons.
Our communication with the doctor had just been completed, when we were informed about the unanimous decision issued by the General Assembly of OENGE. We emphasize the unanimity, because it means that DAKE also agreed (the president of DAKE Iatron and president of EINAP, Matina Pagoni, is the first vice-president of OENGE). The announcement is as follows:
Announcement of OG OENGE, 28/2/21
The General Assembly of OENGE returns regarding the hunger strike of the convict D. Koufontina
  1. We remind you that the exercise of therapeutic acts against the will of any patient is unacceptable and that forced feeding is considered torture. We support the colleagues of the ICU of Lamia Hospital who adhere to medical ethics.
  2. D. Koufontinas has been finally judged for the acts and has been irrevocably convicted. Today what is being judged is his right to a dignified and equal treatment. We call on the government to respect its demand for fair treatment so that we do not have the death of a hunger striker in our country after decades.
We remind you that in December 2014, the neo-democratic president of PIS M. Vlastarakos, on the occasion of the prosecutorial pressure for the doctors to “break” the hunger strike of Nikos Romanos, stated: “The will of the patient is above and above the supreme duty of the doctor for his recovery and salvation . The World Association of Physicians also states in the Malta Declaration that the principle of charity urges physicians to resuscitate, but respect for the autonomy of each individual deters physicians from intervening when a refusal has been given in a credible and fully informed manner .
So, yesterday’s provocation (by order from above) of the commander of the General Staff falls into the void. Lamia , who issued the announcement on “taking all appropriate measures and necessary medical-pharmaceutical actions to deal with the consequences of the multi-day refusal to take food and, finally, fluids.” An announcement was written to pave the way for Mitsotakis to declare after a few hours that “all possible medical care is provided to the convict”.
We recently contacted the commander of the General Staff. Lamia Andrea Kolokytha. “If it’s about the known issue, I will not talk” was his first reaction. When we pointed out to him that with his announcement yesterday he was exposed, our phone hung up! We do not need to comment. Do you understand…
Dimitris Koufontinas continues: until justification or death. He does not make a “suicide threat”, as Mitsotakis vaguely stated through his Press Office. He wants to live, but not letting him be treated like human garbage. Because that’s how they treat him. And this is not just what we say, but now even conservative lawyers say it. KINAL also said this at yesterday’s event of its spokesperson.
As long as they do not satisfy his just and legitimate request, they leave him no choice but to walk with dignity and pride until death. If the Mitsotakis government does not do what is legal and just, if it does not listen to those who put the issue on a purely humanitarian basis, a state assassination will be charged and Mitsotakis himself will always carry the stigma of the politician who killed with the logic of a Sicilian mafia. a political opponent, imprisoned. He will carry the assassination of Dimitris Koufontinas, as his father carried the “apostasy” of 1965. Let him make his decisions. Koufontinas has taken his own.

One more 270bis notified to the anarchist Anna Beniamino (Italy, February 2021)

Since the DNAA (Direzione Nazionale Antimafia e Antiterrorismo, “National Anti-Mafia and Anti-Terrorism Directorate”), from 2015, has been coordinating the various anti-terrorism prosecutors’ offices, the latter have been competing to see who has the easiest 270bis [the charge of subversive association for the purpose of terrorism and subversion of the democratic order]. This competition between thinking heads has also been joined by the penitentiary police, a nucleus of which, starting in the fall of 2020, has begun to contribute to the DNAA.
Thus, last Friday, February 26, the Digos [division of the state police that deals with prevention, anti-terrorism and anti-crime activities] of Messina went to the prison of that city to notify the comrade Anna Beniamino a new 270bis. According to the investigators, Anna would have received via mail a hard-disk with unknown contents, this is the dispute from which everything starts. Irony – or rather idiocy – wants that the hard-disk in question contains the investigation folders of another 270bis, that of Scripta Manent, and that it was authorized to Anna in 2017 to give her the opportunity to consult the police papers of that procedure. From then until today, the object has followed Anna through the various registries of the prisons in which she has passed, therefore Rebibbia, L’Aquila, Lecce, Messina, Rebibbia again and Messina again, until the witty intuition of the Messina prosecutor’s office.
Below the addresses of the anarchists currently imprisoned as a result of the Scripta Manent trial appeal sentence:

—————

Dimitris Koufondinas, political prisoner in Greece, has been on hunger strike since January 8th, because of his illegal transfer from the agricultural penal colony of Kassavetia to the prison of Domokos. The new law under which this took place stipulates that prisoners convicted under the anti-terrorist law must be transferred from the agricultural colonies to the prisons where they were held before. In this case that should have been Korydallos prison, where he passed 16 years of his sentence. His request is to be able to go back into his old cell.

Koufondinas was convicted for his membership of the revolutionary organisation 17 November and has been in prison since 2002. At the time he took full responsibility for the actions of this armed organisation. This is not the first time that the Greek government takes vexatious measures against political prisoners. Especially in his case, because he plays an important role and he inspires, never showing remorse and always remaining faithful to his ideology and his actions.

24/2 we broke the window and the van of a Sklavenitis supermarket in the area of ​​Zografou. This action is a solidarity action for the hunger striker Dimitris Koufontinas. It is one of the many actions taking place in recent days. It is now clear that the ND government is bringing the death penalty back to the forefront in retaliation. It is also clear that this government is not at all interested in the possible political cost of its decisions. For the rest of the time ND remains in power it will continue the same policy or even worse and this is something we should have in mind. The first dead hunger striker in Greece legalizes the death penalty and prisoners are left to the appetites of every ruler, whether they are political prisoners or not.
If D.K. dies, revenge is certain and we will show no mercy.
We call on the world of struggle to prepare because this will not be the end but the beginning.
Whether in the centre of the metropolis or in the neighbourhoods, the streets will become battlefields.

from the Volos Counterintelligence Initiative
Victory now in the hunger strike -The transfer of Mitsos Koufontinas
On the afternoon of Friday 26/2, more than 150 people participated in the rally and the march that followed as a sign of solidarity with the hunger and thirst striker Dimitris Koufontinas in the centre of Volos. The pulse was strong and the response of the passing people was once again positive while this was the 5th in a row invited mobilization in the city. During the march, a symbolic intervention was made in red paint in the political office of Christos Boukoros (ND MP and deputy parliamentary representative) while the slogan ‘the only terrorists’ bureaucracy is the government offices’ was heard. The presence of the police was discreet and from a distance.
At the moment when the life of Dimitris Koufontinas hangs on a thread, the systemic media continue the campaign of silence and mud while the uniformed bastards in Athens once again hit the gathering there. The hundreds of arrests in recent days, with the well-known package of charges (intervention in the Ministry of Health, intervention in the offices of ND in Moschato, rallies in the propylaea, etc.), fines that fall in the rain, beatings and attacks even on journalists, are once again the greatest proof of who the terrorist is. The struggle of Dimitris Koufontinas concerns us all. The beatings and attacks even on journalists are once again the greatest proof of who the terrorist is. The struggle of Dimitris Koufontinas concerns us all.
To stop the extermination of the fighter Dimitris Koufontinas
Victory now in the hunger and thirst strike!

Information from the solidarity march for the hunger striker D. Koufontina on 24/2.(Giannena City)
by Open Assembly against social consensus
On Wednesday 24/2, a solidarity march was held in Giannina for the hunger / thirst striker D. Koufontina, with the participation of about 350 people from forces of the left and the anti-authoritarian space. The “Open Assembly against social consensus” participated with its own bloc that gathered about 100 people with a banner that read “State & capital are the only terrorists, SOLIDARITY TO D. KOUFONTINA”.
                     Solidarity to the hunger striker, from 8/1, Dimitris Koufontina
Political prisoner Dimitris Koufontinas has been on a hunger strike since January 8, once again proposing his body as a last resort against the regime of exclusion and isolation. Being in an Intensive Care Unit and having overcome 40 days of hunger strike, his life is in a very critical condition. Every day and hour that passes burdens his (already burdened) organism, causing him irreversible damage and leading him to death.
……..
The State once again is showing its vindictive character against anyone who fights against State exploitation and repression. Inventing laws and tricks, it targets and attacks those who resist, those who do not consent to their submission and continue to fight for freedom and dignity. D. Koufontinas is not only being punished for his actions, for which he has fully assumed his responsibilities and has been imprisoned for 18 years, but also for his action and his contribution, behind bars, in the struggle against the system, which produces inequality, exploitation and submissive beings.
Under the guise of a pandemic, the State is seizing the opportunity to crush all forms of resistance, whether it comes from those who fight against it inside and outside the walls, or from the entire working class, the student movement and the wider social struggle. In a situation where we are experiencing the deprivation of freedom and expression in our skin, D. Koufontinas shows us in the most painful way that the struggles for a fairer world cannot be quarantined.
For us, another state-capital assassination is taking place, which clearly shows and (again) confirms that their goal is to end anything that stands in the way of their greedy plans. We support the struggle of Dimitris Koufontinas because the battle he is waging reminds us that it is not enough just to live, but to live with dignity.
Victory in the hunger strike of Dimitris Koufontinas and immediate satisfaction of his request
Fight until the demolition of the last prison
The passion for freedom is stronger than all cells
Strength to those who do not forget, do not keep silent and continue to fight

Hamburg,Germany: Broken glass at the Consulate General of Greece in solidarity with D.Koufontinas

The regime of Nea Dimokratia does not seem to hesitate to end the hunger strike of Dimitris Koufontinas only with his death. A policy of settling accounts with a revolutionary period in Greece’s past. The government of Mitsotakis uses the favor of the hour to stifle any radical dissent in the prisons and on the streets during the pandemic.
Because we cannot stand idly by and watch this happen, on the night of Thursday, Feb. 25, we caused glass to be broken at the Consulate General, on which we also sprayed the reason for our attention.
For the fulfillment of the demands of Dimitris Koufontinas – against the killing in the Greek prisons and camps!

Resistance and no compromise aren’t dead words, it’s the struggle for life and freedom

Once again, the revolutionary Dimitris Koufontinas is targeted by the vengeful mania of the Right. More than 18 years of imprisonment are not enough, deprivation of legally approved permits and any beneficial legislation to which he is entitled is not enough. New Democracy puts salt on its historical wounds this time, proceeding to his abduction from the rural prison of Kassavetia and transfer to a closed detention centre. But even the laws are not enough to satisfy the Right’s thirst for revenge and punishment. Koufontinas, instead of being transferred to Korydallos, where he is officially appointed, is transferred to the Domokos prison hell.

In the face of another blow, Dimitris’ consistency in the struggle and resistance shows only one way: another hunger strike (from January 8) against the regime of exclusion and isolation. He is demanding his immediate return to the underground prison wing of Korydallos. Political prisoners V. Stathopoulos, P. Georgiadis, N. Maziotis and G. Dimitrakis, who all went on hunger strike, also stood in solidarity with the hunger striker.
