On Friday, January 10, at 9:00 am, the trial of 22 comrades for the occupation of the Hellenic American Union continues at the First Three-Member Court of Appeals (1st floor - room D70B). The occupation took place in 2016 in solidarity with the US prisoners’ struggle.
The appeal continues - after an interruption - and concerns 22 comrades-in-arms arrested during the occupation of the Hellenic American Union on September 26, 2016.
This occupation was initiated by the “Solidarity for Prisoners of War and Trial Fighters” assembly together with solidarity companions / members in the context of solidarity with prisoners in American prisons. At that time, we had carried out actions, interventions in multinationals such as Bayer, radio station occupations, etc. as a sign of solidarity with the US prisoners’ struggle.
It is noteworthy that Solidarity actions for the ‘fight against slavery’ that took place in US prisons resulted in at least 3 cases of mass kidnapping and mass arrests.
In court we defended our intervention in the Hellenic American Union by political statement on September 26, 2016 while we were sentenced to 14 months with a three-year suspended sentence.
