OR OLD OR NEW, THE PRISONS ARE THE SAME Hunger strike in prisons Grevena

Press Releases

There is no doubt that prisons are either old or new, ignore and violate the rights of prisoners to the same extent. These new

prisons of Kerala (launched in 2008) have nothing to envy of the known scattered throughout the Greek territory, hellish.

Moreover, the prison Grevena is so remote as to preclude the possibility of even basic social control, hindering the access

rights of prisoners with their own, but also with their lawyers.
Despite promises to improve conditions of detention, after the monumental struggle of prisoners in Greek prisons in November

2008 and successive bills, the prison Grevena is a shining example of law enforcement intentions of governments and their

indifference to and violation of basic rights prisoners.
On 11 January, the prisoners in jail Grevena began mass hunger strike demanding the obvious, denouncing the prison medieval


-The usual tactic of humiliating anal control dynastefei lives and even in a very short transfer case for medical reasons. Those

who refuse to try to protect their dignity, are closed to isolate and face disciplinary proceedings.

-Requests for permits are ignored and / or examination unacceptably slow.

-The disciplinary regime is reminiscent of the junta, and the prisoners prosecuted for anything.

-Ignored demands to be heard, even for people who face significant problems.

-There is no doctor for 330 prisoners.

-There is a Secretariat to provide information and serve the needs of prisoners.

-The times of change visiting randomized, so the detainees are deprived of the necessary contact with the outside world and

relatives who all travel to the isolated prison be located before off guard and not be able to see their loved ones who are

-The proaflismos takes place in a very limited space for a very short time. In the courtyard there are fitness leisure detainees.

Heating-only there for an hour this morning.

-At the supermarket shop no price list, so that prisoners pay arbitrary and illegal prices.

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.
