Greece: Update on the Hunger Strike of Revolutionary Struggle Prisoners Pola Roupa and Nikos Maziotis


*UPDATE* December 15, 2017

Due to muscular and physical weakness, Nikos Maziotis is now only able to move using a wheelchair. This information was provided by comrades in solidarity who maintain continuous telephone communication with the comrades of Revolutionary Struggle who are still in the prison hospital of Korydallos, of course, refusing any medical treatment.

So far, both political prisoners / hunger strikers are in the Korydallos prison hospital. Their health is at a critical point, while the health of Nikos Maziotis is more serious. As they have already stated, they refuse any medical treatment and in practice reject the illegal prosecution order for involuntary hospitalization.

There is no progress in satisfying the request that Nikos Maziotis be released from isolation or the request for the withdrawal of Article 11 from the new fascist provisions to the prison code.

The comrades relentlessly continue their hunger strike until the end.

We informed the 2 hunger strikers about the actions of solidarity that have taken place in Patras, Heraklion, Karditsa, Komotini, Volos etc – and the various ways this solidarity has manifested itself (texts, speak-outs, banners, occupations, incendiary actions etc). Strength to all comrades who are in any way expressing their solidarity.

In Athens, on Saturday, 16.12.17 at 16:00 there will be a open mic / speak out in Monastiraki and then a march in solidarity with the hunger strikers and the prisoner’s struggle against the penitentiary code in general. The march is organized by the Assembly of Solidarity with Struggle of the Prisoners Against the New Prison Code.

We call on all comrades, political collectives, hangouts, squats, assemblies etc to support the march.
