Greece: Simultaneous protests outside prisons in 8 cities
13 Nov 2007
Anarchists against prisons
Following the uprising in prisons all over Greece during April (, due to the poor living conditions which was sparked after the beating of anarchist prisoner Giannis Dimitrakis, disciplinary measures and prison transfers are a daily routine to those prisoners who still dare to speak up.

On Sunday 5th of November anarchists around Greece held solidarity protests outside 8 prisons, namely Athens, Thessaloniki, Patra, Heraklion Crete, Larisa, Volos, Ioannina and Komotini, to show that prisoners are not alone in their struggle for better living conditions and express their ideas against prisons as a notion and an institution.

In Athens the riot police attacked the demo of 800-1.000 anarchists, which resulted to clashes and tear gas.
