Letter in Solidarity With the Hunger Strikers Pola Roupa and Nikos Maziotis

Letter in solidarity with the hunger strikers Pola Roupa and Nikos Maziotis by the women prisoners in Korydallos Prison 13th of November 2017.

We want to express our solidarity with our fellow prisoner Pola Roupa and her partner Nikos Maziotis who have been on hunger strike since the 11th of November 2017 and we ask for the fulfilment of their demands which are:

1) Repeal the 6th paragraph of article 11 of the new penal code which is being discussed in the parliament, according to which, prisoners assigned to every legal catetogy could be allocated to segregational facilities/ wards/ sections where they would be kept separate from general population in groups or individually.

The competent judicial authority decides where a remanded detainee will be housed esp. if they have been convicted for planning escapes and other condemnable acts within correctional facilities and could be placed under the law for criminal and terrorist organizations.

2) Release Nikos Maziotis from solitary confinement as soon as possible.

3) Regulate the issue of visiting hours faced by the two hungerstrikers.

enoughcrowdfundingnovdecOur equipment suffered a lot from traveling around Europe for our independent on the ground reports. We need new microphones for better audio on our video reports, a new laptop (the last one crashed in Catalonia) and have a lot of expenses for our on the ground reporting.

We want to stay independent and want to expand our work with on the ground reporting across Europe and even beyond. Therefore we need your support. Help maintain our site and continue our work. Your donations make our work possible.

On December 17 we will travel to Lesvos (Greece) and in January we will travel from Lesvos to Athens to report on the ground.

Each donation helps, also the small ones. Thank you for supporting our project.
