Greece: New statement from the political prisoners in Korydallos prison

cells

On the 4th of July prisoners in Korydallos men’s prison began mobilizing in order to assert a number of demands that are relevant to all prisoners and all people that still want to be called human.

The demands concern extending the implementation period of law 4322 which provides for prison decongestion, the decarceration of incarcerated mothers who must care for babies and young children, the immediate trials of appeals by setting a time limit in order to end indefinite confinement and a number of other fair and necessary issues that are set forth…

This is not about charity on the part of the government and definitely not an appeal to its kindness… This is the LEAST we can claim as our living conditions against the fascist mechanisms of ”justice” which impose hundreds of years of sentences on a daily basis to poor devils who are the products of a system of power. At least it appears as if judges believe in the after life, since a lifetime is not enough to serve the kind of sentences they impose. For them the law is flexible and not simple math…to them 1+1 is not equal to 2 but equal to whatever they want.

The ministry has poisoned prisoners with hope through futile promises….but the prison and justice industries are the only ones that are on the rise even today….

From the underground annex of the special section we join our voices with the prisoners in the men’s prison and we are determined to stand by them in their struggle…because this is a struggle for everyone…
