A message of solidarity to prisoners in Greece from Red & Black Umbrella
September 25th, 2012
An Open Letter to Striking Prisoners in Greece
We, the Red and Black Umbrella Anarchist Social Centre, wish to extend solidarity to the striking prisoners of: Larissa, Trikala, Grevena, Domokos, Malandrino, Komotini, Koridallos, Patras, Corfu, Chios, Nafplion, Diavata and Alikarnassos prisons in Greece; and every rebel that is mobilizing against the inherently unjust and inhumane prison system.
Due to the lack of information in English, we do not know the depth and breadth of the situation but feel an urgent need to show our support for your actions.
As a small gesture we have reprinted the demands of the Larissa prison (see here), posted them up along with a copy of this letter and hung a banner on the exterior of the social centre. We do this not only to express our solidarity, but to echo the voices in your struggle for dignity and to inspire other people in their personal and collective struggles.
We hope that your spark amongst many others will ignite the fires that turn the prison system to ashes.
Love & Rage
