(en) Greece, Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki: Solidarity intervention in the hunger strike of revolutionary Dimitris Koufondina at the American Consulate in the "Plateia" Shopping Center (gr) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 19 Jun 2018 10:30:20 +0300

"Because all this goes beyond the simple issue of a permit, aiming at the core of the conscience of the political prisoner and his personal dignity. And for us this is our invisible red line. And because nothing has ever been given to us, and what is called rights are nothing more than the conquest of long and long-lasting struggles, I answer with what corresponds to the political prisoner. " ---- D. Koufontina ---- D. Koufodinas is in prison for 16 years for his participation in the revolutionary organization November 17, for which he has assumed political responsibility. For years his self-evident right to his regular licenses was deprived of a mechanism that laid down the declaration of repentance and the denial of the armed struggle as a prerequisite for him to offer.

On the basis of the Dendia law (2009), any negative vote of the prosecutor would freeze the license even if the other two members of the three-member Prison Council (the representatives of the directorate and the social service of the prison) vote in favor. In this way, the prosecutor may veto the granting of regular leave to detainees for an indefinite period. After many years of refusals received by Koufontina, he finally received two 48-hour regular licenses in November 2017 and February 2018, during which he was subjected to restrictive restrictive measures. A new terrorist campaign has begun. The profound state of rage has cast every facet of democracy: both the prosecutor of the Court of Appeals Savvaidis and the Prosecutor of the Court of First Instance Spiliotas were faced with disciplinary prosecutions, because they dared to give a positive vote to the fighter's permission by simply applying the law. The new Prosecutor of the First Instance of Piraeus, I. Chatzoglou, took office only on 8/6, although he was appointed by PD. by Kontoni on 10/5. As if that were not enough, the existing Prison Council has not yet met. Faced with the unprecedented approaches of the Deep State, D. Koufodinas decided on May 30, 2018 to start a hunger strike with demands:
a / granting of regular leave
b / abolition of the prosecutor's veto

We are in the two weeks of hunger strike and the striker has lost 7 pounds while his state of health is characterized by unstable and increased risk by the doctors of the General State Hospital of Nicaea.

As a sign of solidarity, Thursday, 14th of July, we took part in the "Plaza" Shopping Center, which houses the American Consulate in Thessaloniki with banners, triciks and slogans.

Against the revenge of the state, no fighter alone.
