Solidarity assemblies outside prisons across Greece
Each new year’s eve we do not forget those who are buried in the prison cells of the republic. One more year, we found ourselves next to imprisoned comrades and all those detained who do not bent neither bow their head, who dared to resist and fight against the regime. We also stand in solidarity to all imprisoned activists who fight for better conditions of incarceration, and claim their self-evident rights even though they’re still deprived of their freedom.
Athens: more than 400 people gathered outside Koridallos prisons. One of the louder slogans was ‘Neither criminal neither political; set fire to all prisons.’

Thessaloniki: about 100 people gathered outside Diavata prisons. On their return, they stopped at the police headquarters of Thessaloniki (GADTH), where a comrade is detained after he was arrested during the invasion in the anarchist squat Nadir; he has made an appeal.
Heraklion, Crete: 30 comrades held a motorized march towards Alikarnassos prisons, making an intervention at the rear of the prisons with fireworks, etc.
Volos: at least 70 comrades chose to get as close as possible to the people behind the bars of the Greek republic. The detainees, who were in tension since early in the evening, cried out slogans and hit the cell bars as soon as comrades got there with slogans and fireworks. There was also a mini demonstration round the juvenile prison.
Grevena: about 70 people gathered outside the Feli prisons, where a live broadcast of solidarity was held.
DAILY, WE BUILD BRIDGES OF SOLIDARITY WITH ALL IMPRISONED FIGHTERS AND POLITICAL PRISONERS
FREEDOM TO ALL HOSTAGES OF THE STATE
