Thessaloniki, Greece: Solidarity Gathering for comrades G. Dimitrakis, K. Sakkas and D. Syrianou
Solidarity Gathering for comrades G. Dimitrakis, K. Sakkas and D. Syrianou.
On June 12 2019, anarchists Giannis Dimitrakis and Kostas Sakkas are arrested after an attempt to expropriate an ATM supply service in Thessaloniki. An hour later, anarchist Dimitra Syrianou is arrested for the same case.
The struggle course of our 3 comrades, a course of constant movement action and resistance, is marked with the choice of close conflict with the State but also at the cost of the extreme repression suffered for it. Imprisonment, bullet wounds, torture, prison riots, hunger strikes, clandestinity, warrants, again arrests and imprisonments.
On September 16, our 3 comrades are on trial for what they are.
That is, part of our world against the barbaric world of class exploitation,
violence and injustice.
SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON
Freedom to comrades K. Sakkas and G. Dimitrakis
Solidarity with comrade D. Syrianou
Solidarity Gathering at the courts of Thessaloniki
