(en) Greece, liberta salonica: Intervention for the new Penitentiary Code and the hunger strike of Roupa / Maziotis (gr) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 28 Dec 2017 10:40:24 +0200

On Wednesday 13/12 as a minimal sign of solidarity with the struggle of the prisoners against the new prison code and the hunger strike that was then carried out by the members of the revolutionary struggle, we interfered with texts, sprays and triciks at the office of Elizabeth Symeonidou-Kastanidou , dean of the law school, and more widely in the fields of law school. This professor specializes in matters of criminal and punitive law and has repeatedly expressed her views on the correct practices of correction, supporting also the action of her husband Haris Kastanidis, who was also the Minister of Justice (2009-2011). ---- Here is the text that was shared and posted during the intervention: ---- The sharpening of exploitation and oppression also entails upgrading the repression ...

In mid-October the new Prison Code will be publicly consulted by the Ministry of Justice. End of the same month the proceedings in the House begin, with the aim of, shortly after, voting. The new Penitentiary Code is fully in line with the gradual and pre-determined choice of capital and its policies for hardening the crackdown that always goes hand in hand with the intensification of the conditions of exploitation and repression by the state and the bosses.

In summary, the new Prison Code restores the operation of C-type prisons from the window, allowing detainees to be detained in police stations and in "specially designed areas" where they are accused of terrorism or attempted to escape. For those who do not know, this entails the lack of preening and the lack of elementary socialization among them. At the same time it useswith new, upgraded terms in the process of licensing or releasing detainees, the notorious "bracelet" to increase the turnover of the state-owned company, G4S. Together with the electronic surveillance bracelet that violates the right to private life and which extends prison control more and more into society, the most frequent application of the home-restraint measure comes along. Point to the times, but let's see it, as the rulers see it: in both cases it remains essentially imprisoned, only now paying itself and broken (in one case the cost of living in his home and the other the amount of 15 euros a day to give G4S to give him the wristband).It introduces new restrictions on the use of educational leave, making it even more difficult to access their education while virtually retaining the right of the prosecutor to block their permits. It obliges prisoners to declare telephone numbers that they want to communicate beforehand so that they can be electronically registered, thus limiting their contacts, while justifying with new provisions the use of force of custodians and enabling the cancellation of wages (a lenient penalty calculation for those working in prison) in the event of a disciplinary misconduct. Certifies and clarifiesthat the humiliation of detainees with their full embarrassment during inspections is what is required, at the same time as there are suitable machines to detect substances and "illegal" objects. Finally, it opens the wayfor the mandatory feeding of hunger strikers - on the order of a court official - if the prisoner's health is at a critical point. The hunger strike is a last resort to a fight whose violent interruption with the mandatory feeding process is even contrary to the bourgeois concept of human rights (the UN has often given its opinion against this practice, while expressing it also prohibits the relevant declaration of the World Medical Congresses (Malta 1991, and Spain 1992 and South Africa 2006 revisions WMV), and may cause a sharp deterioration of the already burdened striker's health. tees fight organized and fighting against provisions which concern not only them, but all racers,

Removal of the prosecutor's veto, which cuts the prisoners' permits.
The withdrawal of the electronic surveillance or home restriction replacing the regular leave and the dismissal.
The institution of 1/5 of the penalty for the normal leave (which is now a vicius of the prosecutor's office).
The immediate withdrawal of Article 11 restoring prison C prison.
Ending the degrading occupation of the prisoner under the guise of investigation.
The withdrawal of the restrictions introduced by the new Penitentiary Code in the training of detainees
Removing the electronic file of people who communicate with prisoners.
The withdrawal of Article 31 (3), which allows the mandatory feeding of a prisoner of a hunger strike.
Finally, the deletion of the punishment clause in Article 67, which entitles the prison council to deduct the beneficial calculation of penalty days
From 11/11, the anarchists Pula Roupa and Nikos Maziotis have begun a hunger strike calling for 1) the withdrawal of Article 11 for the implementation of C prison, 2) the removal of the isolation of Nikos Maziotis, 3) the minimization of the visiting hours based on their frequency and 4) the creation of a special area for children.

As society is increasingly transformed into a universal prison operating solely for the interests of capital and we continue to fail to stand collectively and militarily against it, we recognize in the struggles of the prisoners a common starting point, a common social and class oppression we are experiencing our common oppressors. The project of emancipation of the exploited and the oppressed, the project of a world of freedom, communality, solidarity, without classes and power, the project of a world without prisons is becoming more and more timely, more and more necessary as the crisis deepens and it sucks the last conquests of the struggles of the past, whether economic, social or "freedoms".
