Greek Prisons: Statement of Revolutionary Struggle Prisoners Pola Roupa and Nikos Maziotis on Day 24 of Hunger Strike


[via Athens Indymedia, translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras and Insurrection News]


Our state of health has detiriorated and Pola Roupa is on the verge of hypoglycemic shock with 49 mg/dL blood sugar levels (Note from Insurrection News: generally less than 70 mg/dL is considered hypoglycemia and can quickly become a medical emergency). They said she should be put on serum but she refused it. We refused to stay in the hospital and demanded to be returned to prison, because the agreement we had made for phone communication with our child and for communication with our lawyers was violated by Kragiannis, second in command of the external guard who spoke on behalf of the prosecutor Savaidis. Prosecutor Savaidis is obligated as supervisor of the prisons to get in contact with prisoners, but has repeatedly refused to reply to us, or to answer our request, indicating that there will be no open communication with prisoners. We denounce this attitude. We remain firm in our demands and continue the hunger strike.
