Text about anarchist hunger and thirst striker Antonis Stamboulos by an Initiative of prisoners from A wing of Korydallos prison (Greece)
Inter Arma received and translated:
Anarchist Antonis Staboulos has started a hunger and thirst strike because although there was a court order dictating that he should serve his pre-trial detention in Korydallos prison, he was illegally transferred to Larissa prison. This tactic used by the ministry of justice is not an isolated event. It is part of an overall vindictive strategy against those prisoners who are considered dangerous or are accused of being members of armed organizations. It’s the first glimpse of the type C prisons and of the imposed isolation from the prisoner’s family. We stand next to Anarchist Antonis Stamboulos and we warn the ministry that the death of a prisoner caused by a hunger and thirst strike will have consequences that they cannot predict. Let everyone claim his/her responsibilities. Strength to the hunger and thirst striker Antonis Staboulos.
Initiative of prisoners from A wing of Korydallos prison
Note: Antonis Stamboulos ended his hunger and thirst strike on 11 October. He wrote a statement explaining his decision which is being translated and will circulate soon.
