Athens: Prisoners’ mutiny in Koridallos men’s prisons in solidarity with two members of the R.O. CCF

Sept. 13, 2011 Contra Info

On Tuesday, September 13th, 275 inmates in the 1st wing of Koridallos
men’s prisons refused to enter the prison cells in solidarity with two
imprisoned members of the anarchist revolutionary organization Conspiracy
of Cells of Fire, namely Gerasimos Tsakalos and Panagiotis Argirou who
were transferred to Domokos prisons yesterday, September 12th.

Both refused to comply with the psychological torture of forcible full
body search, and were attacked by warden Christos Kliaris and a group of
the prison guards’ staff. The two political prisoners resisted the
jailers’ blatant attack and threats, demonstrating that not all inmates
remain apathetic to prison humiliating procedures and authorities.

The communiqué is co-signed by a total of 275 inmates who decided to
remain outside the prison cells for three hours during midday. They
dedicate their action to Gerasimos Tsakalos, Panagiotis Argirou and all
prisoners that struggle for their dignity and have suffered tortures.
