Hunger Strike Ends
Thodoros Iliopoulos’s hunger strike didn’t make it to a 50th day. He was released from “temporary” custody soon after we posted our last update on August 27.
Ekathimerini reported on Friday that he was in “extremely fragile but stable condition.” The Greek version of Ekathimerini included that Iliopoulos was freed by the Council of Misdemeanors and that he will have to visit a police station twice a month. He also cannot leave the country.
Pro-Anarchist blog Occupied London trumpeted the release calling it a victory for the international solidarity movement and a protest held this week. “Now we need to keep up this struggle, to demand that all his charges are dropped”.
Other blogs such as anarkismo.net said that in light of Iliopoulos, an immigrant hunger strike on Naxos and the fires in Attica, “The social war continues.”
