December 12th: International Day of the Persecuted Worker
Free Giannis Michailidis and all the young anarchists imprisoned in the Troika jail!
Free all those detained in the last demonstration for justice by Alexis Grigoropoulos, 12 years after his murder!
Free all political prisoners in Greece and the world!
From the International Network for the Liberation of the Political Prisoners of the World and Justice to Our Martyrs, we raise our voice of solidarity and fight for the freedom of Giannis Michailidis and all the political prisoners of Greece. They are dozens of young anarchists who fought against fascism and the starver anti-worker regime of the Troika and its adjustment plans. They are the ones who fought in solidarity with the refugees, who today are in real concentration camps.
Today, the repression made itself felt again, imprisoning dozens of protesters who took to the streets on December 6 to mark the 12th anniversary of the murder of Alexis Grigoropoulos at the hands of the murderous Greek police.
Together with comrade anarchist prisoners we have been fighting together since these years at an international level for the freedom of all political prisoners. From the prisons of Athens, these comrades raised the cry for the acquittal of the oil workers of Las Heras (Argentina) sentenced to prison and life, and from there we fought together on the action days of December 12, the International Day of the Persecuted Worker. We were at the New Year’s marches to Korydallos prison, fighting to open the cells where the oppressors have them, and exclaiming “the passion for freedom is stronger than all cells!” We are siblings in the same struggle.
The fight to win the freedom of the comrades is the same fight at the international level for the freedom of the Basque prisoners, George Ibrahim Abdallah, for the acquittal of the oil workers of Las Heras, for the freedom of the Chilean prisoners and all the political prisoners in the world.
Therefore, once again, facing a new day of December 12, the International Day of Struggle of the Persecuted Worker, we demand loudly:
Free Giannis Michailidis, all those detained from the December 6 mobilization and all Greek political prisoners!
Free all the political prisoners of the world! Acquittal of the oil workers of Las Heras!
May once again, this December 12, find us on the same international day of struggle, fighting together across borders.
As the young anarchists say, The passion for freedom is stronger than all cells!
