Cardiff: demo in solidarity with the CCF hunger strikers in Greece

Via Act for Freedom Now.

WALES -Cardiff – Demonstration in solidarity with the hunger striking members of CCF and their friends and families

Today at 1pm in Cardiff city centre we held a demonstration in solidarity with the hunger striking members of CCF [Conspiracy of Cells of Fire] and their friends and families. We handed out flyers explaining their situation and demands while shouting chants in English and Greek. After the demonstration we hung a banner in the city and scattered flyers from the roof.

Strength and complicity to CCF and their friends and relatives

Long live anarchy!

*we will send pics soon.

PS: also on the Greek hunger strike: latest statement “Amongst Two Worlds” from the CCF hunger strikers.

April 1st: International Day of Action for Hunger Strikers in Greek Prisons

April-1st-International-Day-of-Action-for-the-Hunger-Strikers-in-Greek-Prisons-1024x478

Via Contrainfo.

The imprisoned anarchists who participate in DAK (Network of Imprisoned Fighters) Antonis Stamboulos, Tasos Theofilou, Giorgos Karagianidis, Dimitris Politis, Fivos Harisis, Argyris Ntalios, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Grigoris Sarafoudis and Yannis Michailidis, the Revolutionary Struggle members Nikos Maziotis and Kostas Gournas, the 17 November (17N) member Dimitris Koufontinas, a number of political prisoners originating from Turkey, and the prisoners Giorgos Sofianidis and Mohamed-Said Elchibah are currently on hunger strike, fighting against the legal and repressive state of exception which has been established by the Greek state since the beginning of 2000.

On March 2nd 2015, we commenced a struggle together with the comrades outside the prison walls for abolition of type C maximum security prisons, abolition of the antiterrorist legislation, abolition of the hoodie law, for a fundamental change in the process of taking and identifying DNA evidence, and the release of the polytrauma patient, 17N member Savvas Xiros.

Our struggle for the fulfillment of these demands is a struggle against the very core of a state of emergency. It is a struggle against the very core of a new totalitarianism established over the past 15 years both in Greece and worldwide.

Recognizing the fact that the nexus between the plans of domination surpasses the narrow geographical boundaries of states, we call all comrades around the world to support our fight.

We call all fighters to carry out solidarity actions on April 1st, and thus send a message of revolutionary unity.

VICTORY TO THE STRUGGLE OF THE HUNGER STRIKERS
IMMEDIATE FULFILLMENT OF ALL THE DEMANDS
FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF THE STATE AND THE CAPITAL
