Larissa: Hunger strike of 585 inmates (Greece)

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

585 inmates at the Larissa penitentiary went on hunger strike in protest of the detention conditions they face, asserting satisfaction of their demands.
They already had stopped accepting common prison meals last week,demanding the food to be redistributed to people in need of it.
As the prisoners themselves have announced with an open letter, their demands and allegations are the following:
– better health care
– no reference or mention of any statute-barred disciplinary offense.
– inadequacy of social workers
– legal detention of immigrant inmates for an excessive period of 2 months in Larissa penitentiary, despite their entitlement for conditional release.

We demand these conditions to be changed and for those who are responsible to be replaced also.
The participation in this movement is massive according to the prisoners themselves, they say that the majority of the inmates in the penitentiary are on a strike. This includes all inmates from section B and C, one hundred inmates from section A and, as of today, 25 more from section E.
Lately, the government has shown it’s lack of tolerance by using special forces operations, that resulted in the beating of several inmates in most prisons in Greece.
But the hunger strikes in Larissa penitentiary that started at 29 of April, are but one of the few but efficient ways to resist, that the inmates can use.
Our support/solidarity with their fight is self-evident.
White Cells imposed by left winger Mr Roupakiotis [“justice minister”] won’t make us give in.
Our thoughts are with those who fight for dignity.

A poem by the inmates from the 2nd wing of Larissa men’s prisons dedicated to Lambros-Viktoras Maziotis Roupas, the little son of two members of Revolutionary Struggle (Greece)

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012
For Lambros-Viktoras Maziotis Roupas’ birthday

Born behind prison bars, the visible ones, that hide the heavens

The human guards, the cops and crows, the patrons of quiet sleep were the midwife of yours

You celebrated your first birthday with the shadows cast by steel barriers…

Bourgeois democracy is so merciful…

Now it’s your second birthday, the starlight you’d never seen until now

With the horizon ahead of you extending to infinity

With dogs barking from afar

We wish you ardent years, seas resounding in your ears, thunders singing lullabies to you

The tide coming in and erasing your footsteps, on the sand…

With respect and love to those who did not regret what they ever dared to do
Honour and remembrance forever for Lambros Foundas

This goes out to Nikos, Pola and very young Lambros-Viktoras

The prison inmates of the 2nd wing of Larissa

Happy Birthday and life’s freedom to Lambros-Viktoras Maziotis Roupas from 325. Strength, warmth and respect to Nikos and Pola. Honour to the memory of Lambros Foundas, member of Revolutionary Struggle. Solidarity to those accused and on trial for the same case.

REVOLUTION FIRST AND ALWAYS
