(en) Greece, Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki: Winning the hunger strike by D. Koufontina | Anarchist Federation (gr) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 10 Jun 2018 08:13:25 +0300

From Wednesday, 30 May, political prisoner Dimitris Koufontas is for the first time on his revolutionary journey on a hunger strike demanding the abolition of the prosecution veto and the regular granting of licenses. ---- The prosecutor's veto summarizes the prison council by giving any prosecutor the possibility of canceling the Council's decisions on the case and banning the hope of the detainees over the 48-hour leave. ---- Licensing after hard and perennial struggles, inside and outside prisons, is a vested right of the prisoners, which is being called into question, since it is now in the hands of each prosecutor. This fact makes no apprehension since the vengeful state fury against political prisoners is inherent in the "values" of bourgeois democracy.

It is at least cynical for the militants to pose as a danger to the "orderly" functioning of society by those who have led to its overwhelming majority, and are no more than their bosses and their political staff.

It is now assumed that anyone who actually challenges capitalism and the monopoly of state violence is condemned and will continue to be condemned in several ways, as in this case is the refusal to grant regular permission to the face of D. Koufontina, who refuses to repent crouching head to its class enemies, if the latter wish it.

Remarkable and not at all incidental this time is the fact that the public prosecutor of Piraeus and the Prosecutor of Piraeus are prosecuted for unknown reasons, at the request of the Supreme Court Prosecutor, the people who voted in favor of granting regular leave. This clearly shows how civil justice and its mechanisms are capable of disposing of its own, even of the lawful ones, which it legislates itself, whenever it considers that it does not serve its own interests.

Against the constant condemnation and slander of the imprisoned militants, the only solution is the multidimensional and insurmountable struggle inside and outside the walls for the protection of our achievements and the conquest of new ones as the overthrow of the dominant order of things.

The case of Dimitris Koufodtina is not unique, he adds to a series of legal attacks on people involved in social struggles, such as Tassos Theophilus, Ireana, Pericles, etc.

Each case has its peculiarities. Every prosecutor expresses a particular political content. For the oppressed, no matter what political content they may identify, what matters is that each of these cases, and all together, demonstrate the essential political core under the surface of "impartiality" that civil justice claims for herself. This political core produces a gray zone of self-righteousness of the "rule of law" which, depending on the conjuncture, can be greatly expanded. Such a juncture is the current one in which we are witnessing a systematic attack by mobilizing a whole mechanism: rights abuses, convictions without evidence, appeals, and falsification of false news.

Based on this logic, we, by denying any thought of repentance regarding what we profess and dream, stand solidarity with the fighter Dimitris Koufontina and call for the social base to support all the solidarity mobilisations that will take place throughout Greece with the first ones that organizes in Athens the "Solidarity Assembly at Koufontina", with a moped on Wednesday 6/6 from the Propylaea and the course on Saturday 9/6 at 13:00 in Monastiraki.
