This morning Nikos stopped his hunger strike as the state after the parliament voted for a justice ministry's amendment which allows him to attend courses wearing an ankle bracelet.
This fight was a combined stuggle that went far beyond the grey walls of the prison to which occupations, solidarity attacks and protests, the massive solidarity made us think of December 2008.

Not a single comrade will find themself alone in the hands of the State - until the victory of all our struggles!

Anarchist Nikos Romanos in February 2014 was convicted for a double armed robbery. He was given as a prisoner the right to participate in the national exams and he managed to enter the Technological Educational Institute of Pireaus. Ever since the Greek state repeatedly denies his rightful furloughs. It is well known that the Greek state reeks of fascism, totalitarianism and revengiousness towards whoever dares to resist, whoever threatens the dystopian regime of exploitation and fear, whoever reclaims some of our lost time, whoever gets back what is ours while at the same time is attacking society in all fronts with the country suffering one of the worst recession periods since the 40s.

Nikos chose sides a long time ago and remains faithful to his choice. Nikos chose the side of struggle and dignity, the path of attack and militancy. It was Nikos who held Alexis Grigoropoulos in his arms when the latter was taking his last breath in the 6th of December 2008 after a cop shot him in cold blood in the neighbourhood of Exarhia in central Athens. At the age of 15 the state killed his friend and now it is killing him.

Our comrade, Nikos Romanos, is on hunger strike since 10th of November. After one month of consuming just water his health is in critical condition. The risk of one of his vital organs failing is increased day by day. Nikos uses his body as a barricade not only to win the educational furloughs but to set an example of struggle, to awake consciounesses, to fight against increasing prisoners' repression and maximum security prisons and finally to challenge the beast.

It's a fight of freedom and life over death and modern slavery.

We can only be in solidarity with this fight. In the night of 9th of December we attacked the offices of the Greek Organisation for Tourism in Leidseplein, Amsterdam. We decorated the entrance with slogans for Nikos. It was a minimum action of solidarity for our comrade.



We don't forget the Syrian refugees who are also in hunger strike in Greece. Solidarity with the Syrian refugees.
