(en) Greece, "Black & Red" [APO]: Solidarity gathering with the hunger strike of Dimitris Koufontina (gr) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 13 Jun 2018 09:23:03 +0300

On 30/05, Dimitris Koufodinas launched a hunger strike requesting him to regularly take the regular licenses he is entitled to and the abolition of the prosecution veto. Today (June 9th) is on the 11th day of the strike and has already been transferred to the hospital because he was exhausted and overwhelmed by previous hunger strikes. D. Koufodinas has been deprived of licenses for the last 7 years, as he has argued that the CoE has a distorted ideology and has not shown any remorse for his actions. In November 2017, following pressures and actions of a Pan-Hellenic solidarity movement in the hunger strike of the same and the political prisoner, Kostas Gourna, he began to take regular licenses, but this was interrupted after the Athenian Pagan prosecutor intervened.

D. Koufodtina's case is one of many that demonstrates the repressive approaches of the state towards its political opponents: convictions without evidence, established dictionaries, uncontrolled use of DNA, annulment of court decisions, exemplary punishments for anarchists, deprivation of licenses, especially cells and special laws aim at moral and material extermination as well as the establishment of an exemption regime for political prisoners and social militants.

The SYRIZA / ANEL co-operation proves that the state has continued by extending the practices of the previous power administrators by upgrading its legal arsenal and endeavoring to consolidate repression and control in every social field. The criminalization of interventions in workplaces, the attempt to criminalize the trade union organization and actions with the persecution of members of the CCA of Athens, the abolition of the strike as a means of struggle with the implementation of the new polynomiogram and the "Social Alliance", the suppression of self-organized structures the attack of state and capital on the slaves.

In the above cases, anarchist convictions are added as "individual terrorists", leaving a legacy for the criminalization of belief, namely anarchist political identity, the conviction of M. Seisides in 36 years of imprisonment with the only evidence of a DNA sample, the imprisonment of Herannas and of Pericles on the basis of their social relations and a partial sample of genetic material and the appeal of the innocent decision for the anarchist communist Tassos Theofilos again with the intervention of the Supreme Court. Modern totalitarianism requires absolute harmonization of "democratic powers" for the crushing of political prisoners.

It is demonstrated through all these and so many other slanderous approaches, the dominant strategy of the state, characterized by vengeance towards anyone who is associated with struggles against the existing. The imposition of totalitarian regimes passes through the consolidation of social consensus and terrorism. Thus, the consolidation of repression in every social field and the diffusion of fear to level down all social and class resistance and to exterminate by all means those who fight are closely linked to the overall attack, economic, political and cultural, launched by the state and the capitalism against the social base.

As the crisis progresses, creating new deadlocks for the oppressed, the power administrators will try to curb our resistance with more control, repression, and fear. We, as anarchists, ought not to leave anyone alone in the hands of the state and to fight to break the fear and the status of the exception that is being attempted to be imposed on political prisoners . Faced with state and capitalist barbarism, rage, and war, we set our collective resistances and solidarity among the oppressed and fight for a society of freedom, equality and solidarity for Anarchy and Liberal Communism!
