Greece: Freedom For Evi Statiri

Insurrection News received:

On March 2, 2015, Evi Statiri, along with others, was detained under accusation of participating in a 'terrorist' group. The Greek state claims that she was involved in an escape plan by the imprisoned members of the anarchist group Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF), simply because she is the partner of member Gerasimos Tsaklos.

Shortly after the detainments, the members of the CCF and another arrestee, anarchist Angeliki Spryopoulou, began a hunger strike demanding the immediate release of their friends and family. After 31 days of hunger strike, with some strikers approaching death, the left wing management agreed to their demands. However, after months of waiting, Evi remains in prison.

There is only one goal behind Evi and other friends and family of the CCF being taken as state hostages: to force the members of the CCF to bow their heads, to sacrifice their desire for freedom, to compromise with incarceration, to become disciplined prisoners, to agree to psychic death at the hands of the state. At the same time, it is a clear message to comrades who choose to engage in practical solidarity, that prison's door can be opened for them too!

On September 3, the Judicial Council is going to decide on the extension of the pre-trial detention of Evi Statiri.

On September 2, let us the challenge the world of organized apathy with hostile gestures of insubordination. We will continue the war of anarchy until all those locked in the state's dungeones are free. Total solidarity with Evi and all those held in the state's dungeons!
