An attack against the Kaisariani Police Precinct in Athens, Greece was recorded on 28 February 2021 by a nearby CCTV camera. Although no one has claimed responsibility for the molotov attack against the precinct that houses a riot police centre, the greek media and the greek police are assuming that the attack was executed by anarchists, in solidarity with Dimitris Koufodinas, who has been on a hunger strike since the 8th of January 2021.
Dimitris Koufodinas, now 63 years old, is on hunger strike for the last 55 days. His current demand is to be transferred to Korydallos prison, but mainly, an end to the arbitrary political interventions against him that treat him as a political prisoner.
Even after 55 days without food, the greek government refuses his right to equal treatment. His death is considered imminent with unforeseen consequences.
If Dimitris Koufontinas dies he will be the first prisoner on hunger strike to die in the European Union, since the death of Bobby Sands and his comrades in 1981, 40 years ago, in Northern Ireland, under the Margaret Thatcher regime.
