Greece: Actions in Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoner Konstantinos ‘Dinos’ Giagtzoglou

Athens: Intervention Outside the Ministry of Justice

Today, Saturday 24/2 there was an intervention outside the Ministry of Justice of about 80 comrades on the occasion of the violent transfer of comrade Dinos Giagtzoglou and the rebellion that followed in Korydallos prison.

A banner was unfurled [in solidarity with Dinos’ hunger and thirst strike]. The intervention lasted about half an hour.

When we left, the MAT (riot police) made an unnecessary attack and persecution through the streets of Red Sea and Panormos.

In the context of a clear choice made by the political administration of the leftist government to attack, the police proceeded to intervene with five arrests, of which four were turned into arrests on charges of a false nature (disturbance of public order and attempted serious injuries against the police, insulting police, possession of weapons,
fingerprint denial).

Immediate fulfillment of K. Giagtzoglou’s demand for transfer to Korydallos prison.

End the persecution of the four arrestees after the intervention outside the Ministry of Justice.

We call for a demonstration tomorrow Sunday 25/2 at the military courts at 11:00 in the 16th building, where the comrades will pass through the prosecutor’s office.

Assembly of Solidarity with Dinos Yagtzoglou


Note from Insurrection News: Comrade Dinos is accused of the attack with a parcel bomb against former minister Lukas Papademos that occurred in May 2017. The address of Papademos needs a guard house outside, as you can see in the video and photos.


Molotov Attack Against Volos Prison

On Sunday afternoon we attacked with several Molotov cocktails the prison of Volos. This action is a first direct response to the events that occurred on Saturday in the Greek prisons and outside the Justice Ministry.

Strength to the anarchist hunger striker Dinos Giagtzoglou. Immediate satisfaction of his demand to be transferrred to Korydallos. Solidarity with the 4 people arrested for the attack by the MAT (riot police) during the demonstration outside the Ministry of Justice.

Herd of Refusal
