Greece: Prisoners in Corfu Join Struggle Against Fascist Provisions of the New Penal Code.

From today, December 29th, prisoners in Corfu prison are participating in the national struggle against the fascist provisions of the new Penal Code.

 

These provisions re-introduce the solitary confinement of type C prisons, legalize the degrading undressing of prisoners, institutionalize the violence against prisoners even in cases of passive resistance, establish the profiteering of private corporations ( G4S for the provision of ankle tethers), which collectively create a fundamentalist regime within prisons.

At the same time a public open consultation on the new penal code is being scheduled for January, which will constitute a new forefront of our struggle…

The Struggle Committee will soon express its stance on the new penal code and inform of new forms of actions publicly.

Currently, during the national mobilization of the Struggle Committee against the new penal code, the following prisons are taking part in the mobilization:

Korydallos Men’s Prison

Korydallos Women’s Prison

St. Stephanos Prison, Patras Chania Prison

Larissa Prison

Malandrino Prison

Domokos Prison

Corfu Prison

VICTORY TO PRISONERS’ STRUGGLE AGAINST THE NEW CORRECTIONAL CODE.




Our 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.

We did and do a lot of on the ground reporting in Europe. Since December 17 we are on 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 the Enough is Enough project.
