Greece prisoner hunger strike – Fourth day (26/6)

Counter-info gathering in Larissa, Greece (June 25th, 2014);
the top banner reads: “Maximum security prisons, concentration camps…
Crush the new totalitarianism. Fire to the hellholes”;
the other banner reads: “Invisible and visible prison bars…
The prison society smiles at you. –Anarchists’ Assembly of Larissa

Draft bill on new Type-C maximum security prisons will be put to a vote within a week. The Greek parliament is in summer recess; the recess section (consisting of one third of the total number of MPs) is scheduled to vote the bill on Thursday the 3rd of July 2014.

Below are the hunger strikers (per prison) who continue to participate in the nationwide mobilization against the operation of a Greek Guantanamo in Domokos prison:

Koridallos (Athens): 1,480 prisoners

Patras: 550 prisoners

Grevena: 400 prisoners

Larissa: 330 prisoners

Domokos: 300 prisoners

Chania (Crete): 280 prisoners

Nigrita (Serres): 200 prisoners

Amfissa: 200 prisoners

Corfu: 120 prisoners

Trikala: 120 prisoners

Malandrino: 120 prisoners

Avlonas: 100 juvenile prisoners

Kos: 60 prisoners

Corinth: 50 prisoners

Nafplion: 50 prisoners

In Alikarnassos (Crete), all inmates abstain from prison food.

Also, on June 26th, another court session at Koridallos was interrupted, because all of the CCF imprisoned members on trial are currently on hunger strike against the fascist bill of the ministry of Justice.

Defend and Free Political Prisoners in North America

Dear friends and comrades!

The 2014 North American Anarchist Black Cross conference is a mere three months away and we have a long way to go before reaching our fundraising goal! In an effort to really kickstart the final fundraising push, we are asking for your help in raising $2000 by midnight on June 22nd! This money will help us cover the cost of the space for the conference. OR it will help us cover airfare to fly in comrades from across the continent to join us in Denver. OR it will help us cover the cost of food for the weekend. You get the picture…

For the last three years, our international conference has brought together dozens of people from all over North America who are involved in the struggle to support, act in solidarity with, and free our comrades. Rarely is there a time when we are all in the same space—sharing our ideas and energy, strategizing, building networks, and creating new projects to strengthen our struggles and movements. The conference has also been a time for intergenerational, cross-movement dialogue—a time to learn from the past and look to the future.

When you donate to the conference, your money is essentially seed money for the beginning stages of exciting new projects and the revitalization of old ones. It is a contribution to the future of our movements and to the freedom of our imprisoned comrades.

But just in case you need more of an incentive… we would like to offer gifts for money donated!

A donation of $10: 2 Political Prisoner Support stickers*
A donation of $25: 1 Political Prisoner Support t-shirt** and 2 stickers
A donation of $40: 1 t-shirt, 2 stickers, and a book***
A donation of $60: 2 t-shirts, 2 stickers and a book
A donation of $60+: the gifts for the $60 donation plus our undying love and devotion

If you would like to make a donation but not receive the gifts, please make note of that. Once you donate using the link below, we will contact you about your gifts. If you would like to send a check or money order, rather than using the link below, contact us at naabcconference[at]riseup[dot]net to find out where to send it.

Please visit: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/ek5vc/ab/f3E260 to make a donation now.

Again, we are pushing to raise $2000 by midnight on June 22nd. With your help, we can do it!

Yours in solidarity,

Until all are free!

The NAABC Organizing Crew
