Solidarity to Alfredo & Christos – Greek Consulate visit in Berlin (Germany)
On the 3.2 some anarchists paid a short visit to the Greek consulate in Berlin, located at the Wittenberg square. With a banner reading in both Greek and German „The passion for freedom is stronger than any prison – Freedom to Alfredo Bonanno and Christos Stratigopoulos“ we raised attention on the situation of the two comrades imprisoned in Greece.
Alfredo and Christos, both active since long time in the anarchist movement, have been arrested on the 1.10.09 in Trikala, Greece, accused of committing a bank robbery.
Some flyers have been given out to the passer-byers. A fax has been given to the consul and sent over to the „minister for justice and human rights of Greece“. The fax sent was the same one Greek comrades already sent over during the last days in a similar action. This small action has been a piece of solidarity along the struggle for the release of both comrades.
Alfredo, 73 years old anarchist comrade from Italy has serious health problems and suffers under the heavy conditions in prison.
Despite the fact that the Greek law prescribes an earlier release upon serious health problems, the authorities refused until now to set him free.
Different expressions of solidarity took place in different countries within the last months.
You can check further infos about the two comrades and the solidarity actions under:
Posters in solidarity with both comrades have been printed lately and one can get them by writing the ABC Berlin.
For the immediate release of Alfredo!
Freedom for Christos and all the prisoners – prison to become holes in the ground!
