24.02.18 Hoy a las 06:45 AM, la EKAM (Unidad Especial Antiterrorista) invadió la prisión de Korydalos y secuestró violentamente al compañero anarquista en huelga de hambre Konstantinos Yiagtzoglou. Konstantinos se resistió lo mejor que pudo cuando los EKAM enmascarados y uniformados entraron en su celda y lo agredieron. Luego lo esposaron y lo arrastraron violentamente fuera de su celda mientras estaba aturdido por el asalto. El ala de la prisión fue cerrada, pero los prisioneros golpearon las puertas y maldijeron a los policías. Hasta ahora, el ala todavía está cerrada.

Tan pronto como el compañero fue sacado de su celda, un equipo especial de transporte lo llevó acompañado por miembros de la EKAM fuertemente armados. El compañero fue secuestrado sin siquiera permitirle llevar su ropa, pertenencias personales o incluso su medicación.

El ala A de la prisión de Korydalos todavía está cerrada porque las autoridades de la prisión están asustadas por las reacciones de los prisioneros. Esta es la segunda vez en un mes que la EKAM ha secuestrado a los presos del ala A. Y todo esto ocurre bajo el llamado gobierno izquierdista de “derechos” de Syriza.

“Ninguna confianza en el ministerio”: el prisionero anarquista Konstantinos Yiatzoglou continuará la huelga de hambre 

Dinos

24.02.18 El compañero Dinos fue informado sobre las movilizaciones en las cárceles después de su transferencia ilegal por la EKAM  mientras estaba en huelga de hambre. Sabía que después del segundo comunicado de los prisioneros, una reunión demanda del Comité de Transferencia se convertiría en una prioridad absoluta para cumplir su pedido. A pesar de los compromisos del Ministerio de Justicia con un ‘resultado positivo’
para los presos y el abogado del Comité de Lucha de Prisioneros, no hay confianza en los funcionarios del ministerio. Entonces Dinos continuará con su huelga de hambre y desde mañana en la mañana también comenzará una huelga de sed con una sola demanda: su traslado directo de regreso a Korydallos. Habrá información más detallada en las próximas horas.

Nada ha terminado. Todo continúa

Greece: ‘No Trust in the Ministry’ -Anarchist Prisoner Konstantinos Yiatzoglou Will Continue Hunger Strike

Dinos

24.02.18: Comrade Dinos was briefed on the mobilizations in the prisons following his illegal transfer by EKAM (Special Anti-Terrorist Unit) while he was on hunger strike. He knew that after the prisoners’ second communique, a special meeting of the Transfer Committee would become an absolute priority to fulfill his request. Despite commitments by the Ministry of Justice for a ‘postive outcome’ made to the prisoners and the lawyer for the Prisoners’ Struggle Committee, there is no confidence in the ministry officials. So Dinos will continue his hunger strike and from tomorrow morning will also begin a thirst strike with only one demand – his direct transfer back to Korydallos. There will be more detailed information in the next few hours.

Nothing is over. Everything continues.

Greece: ‘Only the Ideas We Actually Live Are of Any Value’ – About the Hunger Strike of Konstantinos Yiagtzoglou

Received on 24.02.18:

Today, 24/02, early in the morning, a group of police special forces (EKAM) entered Korydallos prison and abducted comrade Konstantinos Giagtzoglou (who is on hunger strike since 21/02 demanding his permanent transfer in Korydallos prison, located in Athens) in order to transfer him to Larisa prison. The comrade fought back which resulted in him being injured by the pigs. He wasn’t allowed to take any of his stuff, not even his medicine.

As an immediate response, the rest of the prisoners rose up and captured all prison wings, demanding a meeting with a representative of the Justice Department. They demand the immediate return of Konstantinos in Korydallos prison.

General information about the case:

Anarchist comrade Konstantinos Giagtzoglou was arrested on October 28th 2017, while exiting a hideout rented by him under a false identity and while trasferring guns and explosive materials. Ntinos is accused of being a member of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and for sending parcel bombs to various E.U. officials including the former prime minister of Greece, Loukas Papadimos. The cops’ accusations are based on a mixed DNA sample and on the fact that Dinos was visiting a former anarchist prisoner in Korydallos prison in early 2013. The comrade stated that both renting the appartment and transferring the equipment were part of “revolutionary solidarity” and denies all other charges.

The judicial authorities aim to isolate him by assigning him to Larisa prison for his pre-trial detention, in a city 355 kilometres away from Athens where his family, friends and comrades are. Ntinos was tranferred in Korydallos prison a few days ago to be tried for an older case (he was arrested in Athens, in 2011 during massive clashes with riot police). While there, he was informed that his official request to remain in Athens (Korydallos prison) until his new trial was denied by the Central Committee for Prison Transfers. As a response, the comrade decided to go on a hunger strike on 21/02, demanding his permanent tranfer in Korydallos prison until the time of his trial.

There have been a few attacks here in Greece in solidarity with the comrade during the past few months of his incarceration:

  • A group called “Cracks in normality” heavily vandalized two SYRIZA local offices (largest party of the government coalition) and a post office in Athens, on 26/01/2018
  • A FAI cell called “FAI-IRF Cell” planted an incendiary device at a post office in Patras (western part of Greece), on 06/01/2018
  • A group called “Destroyers of social peace” heavily vandalied a post office and a local branch of Piraeus bank in Athens, on 18/01/2018
  • A FAI cell called “Revolutionary Cells of Action” planted an incendiary device at a local branch of Piraeus bank in Athens, on 26/01/2018
  • A group called “Anarchist Cell – Destruction of the existent” torched a local electricity station that belonged to the National Company of Telecommunications (OTE) in Thessaloniki, on 14/12/217

There have also been a few small solidarity gatherings and some banners were hanged around the city of Athens along with posters etc.

Korydallos1

24.02.18: UPDATE 1: This is a time of insurrection by Korydallos prisoners after the abduction K. Yiagtzoglou by the cops a while ago. So far A, D and possibly C wings are involved in a dynamic action in response to the kidnapping of anarchist hunger striker K. Yiagtzoglou.

UPDATE 2: The prisoners have taken keys and a radio from the guards. What is happening now is in the context of a mobilization by prisoners demanding the return of anarchist comrade Konstantinos Yiagtzoglou to Korydallos Prison.

They demand that government representatives come to the prison.

Greece: Anarchist Prisoner Konstantinos Yiatzoglou Kidnapped from Korydallos Prison by EKAM (Special Anti-Terrorist Unit)

Korydallos

24.02.18: UPDATE 1 – Today at 06:45AM EKAM (Special Anti-Terrorist Unit) invaded Korydallos Prison and violently kidnapped the hunger striker Konstantinos Yiagtzoglou. Konstantinos resisted as best as he could as the masked and uniformed EKAM entered his cell and assaulted him. They then put him in handcuffs and violently dragged him out of his cell while he was in a dazed state from the assault. The wing of the prison was put on lockdown but the prisoners banged on the doors and cursed the cops. So far the wing is still on lockdown.

UPDATE 2 – As soon as the hunger striker Konstantinos Yiagtzoglou was removed from his cell a special transport team took him accompanied by heavily armed members of EKAM. The hunger striker was kidnapped without even letting him bring his clothes, personal belongings or even his medication.
A-wing is still on lockdown as the prison authorities are frightened about the reactions of the prisoners. This is the second time in a month that EKAM have kidnapped prisoners from A-Wing. And all this occurring under the so-called left-wing Syriza government of ‘rights’.
