Larissa (central Greece): 2 trials of young people and actions

Larissa (central Greece): 2 trials of young people and actions

trial of 11 minors /cused with the anti-terrorism law
On December 9th the trial of 11 underage students, accused with the anti-terrorism law for setting up a criminal association because they participated in the uprising of December 2008, takes place in Larissa.
On November 27th, a nationwide demonstration against anti-terrorist law took place in Larissa. Around 2000 people coming from all over Greece marched on the central streets of Larissa shouting anti-repression slogans and demanding the abolition of the anti-terrorist law and the acquittal of all those arrested. The dynamic pulse of the demo and the number of demonstrators was unusual for the city. Several cops and secret cops were spread in the city without any incident to be noted.
trial of 4 students accused for supermarket expropriation without evidence
On December 1st  the trial of 4 young students, who were arrested at a bus stop as suspects because of their external appearance with the unique element that they were traced near the public market where the products were shared after a supermarket expropriation in  Larissa on 02/11/2009,  was supposed to take place in the same city.

One of the 4  accused explains in an interview that the prosecution is political and vindictive because the 4 persons are involved in the student movement, the anti-racist movement, participating in collectives and solidarity actions and they have been targeted several times by the state and para-state of the city.
On the day of the trial, a solidarity gathering of many people took place outside the courts, while the cops that guarded the place were numerous . The trial was postponed for the June 1st in 2011.
2008 december 2010, from the uprising to the trials. Abolition of the anti-terrorist law. The social struggle is neither legal nor illegal, there are fair and necessary.

“…A handful of capitalists
have organized a criminal gang
and have kidnapped the proletarians,
demanding for ransom
their labor force,
merchandising their human activity,
their time (which is turned into money),
their own being itself…”

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".

A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.

To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
