Athens: Manifestations in solidarity with comrades imprisoned and persecuted for the Revolutionary Struggle case and in memory of Lambros Foundas

Posted on October 5, 2011


I send you my support and hopes of strength for the trial. A spectacle set up by corrupt judges, cops and politicians.
In the north, we will raise a clenched fist through the barred windows of the English prisons, high towards the sky. Never losing sight of our goal. Sharing dreams of freedom and victory. With determination and courage, united we will succeed.
No one is free until all are free.
Fire to the prisons and the States that create them.

Solidarity with the comrades of Revolutionary Struggle from anarchist antifascist prisoner Thomas Blak (London, UK)

On October 1st, at 12 pm comrades attended a solidarity gathering PA’s [mikrofoniki] in Syntagma Square where also texts were distributed for over an hour regarding the upcoming trial of the Revolutionary Struggle case.

Nearly 3,000 people marched down central streets of Athens in solidarity with the imprisoned members of the R.O. Revolutionary Struggle Pola Roupa, Kostas Gournas and Nikos Maziotis, as well as the persecuted for the same case Christoforos Kortesis, Sarantos Nikitopoulos, Vaggelis Stathopoulos, Marie Beracha and Kostas Katsenas (who is not a fugitive anymore). Militant slogans were chanted such as ‘The States are the only terrorists! Solidarity with the guerrilla fighters!’ and ‘Lambros [Foundas] lives inside every fighter’s heart’.
The trial of the Revolutionary Struggle case will begin on Wednesday, October 5th, at 9 am in the special court of Koridallos dungeons. It is now more than necessary to show international solidarity with our comrades.
