Greece: Report on the 3rd Day of the Prisoner Strike at Korydallos Prison, Alfa Sector

Received on 17.04.2020:

Today is the third day of the prisoner strike in Korydallos. Basically the prisoners who work in the jail kitchen and the ones who work as cleaners are on strike.
Social services are only providing prisoners with 2 sandwiches per day. Everything else is the same.

Nothing much has changed for prison life despite the strike, at least not here in Alfa Sector. The problem is that the strike hasn’t spread yet to all of the prisons in Greece, only 65% of them, and there are no set demands yet. It is obvious that the strike is because of the changes to prison rules due to the coronavirus, but it hasn’t been specified precisely what we want.

For the last 2 days there has been symbolic noise protests by prisoners against the closing of the cells at 20:00 hrs, which is the normal time of cell closing. Basically just hitting the doors to make noise to annoy cops, but nothing happened here, they just locked us in our cells.

Delta Sector of Korydallos, prisoners lit some fires yesterday (see video). After the fires MAT (riot cops) arrived and they heavily assaulted one guy and took him with them. It’s unknown whether he was taken to an isolation cell or the prison hospital. Hopefully they do not say that “he died of Covid-19″….
