Greece: About the mafia-style attack on anarchist comrade Giannis Dimitrakis in Domokos prison

Greece. On 24 May 2021, anarchist fighter G. Dimitrakis was murderously attacked with multiple blows to the head by a group of prisoners in Domokos prisons where he is currently being held. Following the attack, Giannis was transferred to the hospital of Lamia in a critical condition. Eight days on, although our comrade has escaped the danger to his life, the damage done is still very serious. Giannis’s strength and mental vigor make us optimistic that he will also come out of this battle victorious.

#Greece: Fundraising for the legal expenses of anarchist comrades G. Dimitrakis and C. Sakkas

On the 12th of June 2019, anarchists Giannis Dimitrakis and Kostas Sakkas were arrested, after attempting to expropriate an ATM cash supply delivery in Thessaloniki. Anarchist Dimitra Syrianou was arrested a few hours later for the same case. The next day, the three comrades were interrogated, prosecuted and charged. Comrades G.Dimitrakis and C.Sakkas are accused of robbery and are remanded, while D. Syrianou is accused of simple complicity and is set free on restrictive terms. The arrests, after an organized operation – ambush of the anti-terrorist and EKAM squads, were presented as a huge success for the Greek police, since both comrades had been systematically targeted by the prosecuting authorities in the past. Our two comrades have walked the path of the struggle, steadily taking up action and resisting as part of the social movements, making the choice of direct confrontation with the state and paying the price of extreme repression for it. Incarcerations, bullet wounds, torture, prison riots, hunger strikes, flights from trial, arrest warrants and then arrests and imprisonment again.
