One year after the beginning of last year’s hunger strike, Dimitris Koufontinas gave the first interview since those days to ‘The Press Project’. We publish here a translation. From our point of view, the interview marks the similarities, but also the differences between the current that Dimitris represents and those to which we feel connected, or not, as in the case of the Shining Path from Peru. However, our hearts will always be with those who are imprisoned in the dungeons of our mortal enemies.

Thessaloniki. Greece. In the early hours of New Year’s Eve, a large number of police forces block the university campus and begin the eviction operation of the Biologica squat.

Anarchist and leftist occupations of university buildings is a longstanding tradition in Greece; the 1973 national uprising against the Junta government was launched from an occupied university.
The following is a translation of the steki’s call for solidarity, which prompted the march seen here.Continue reading The Eviction Of The Squatted “Biology Steki” Will Not Go Unanswered [Thessaloniki, Greece]
The last time we wrote about the situation here in Athens, we were sweating beside our laundry drying that was covered with soot from raging wild fires.
