The four anarchist prisoners consider themselves to be a political scapegoat for the legitimate anger of the Greek People against the Capitalist regime. They demand the lifting of the maximum security regime imposed to them before trial, as well as the release of one of them Stella Antoniou, on health grounds.
Giorgos Karagiannidis, Alexandros Mitroussias and Kostas Sakkas began their hunger strike yesterday, while Stella Antoniou will join them in a week because of her delicate health.
A demo has been called for today at Syntagma Square in solidarity with them. However there are other calls for anti-austerity demos in that same place at the same time.
