On day 45 of his hunger strike, Thodoros Iliopoulos is finally finding himself in a hospital outside prison (he was transferred to the Sotiria Hospital in Athens on Friday, after a series of promised transfers out of prison that never materialised). Day 46 of his hunger strike (Mon, August 24) is the day when thousands of us across the country (and beyond) will join our voices in demanding that Thodoros is set free. People in solidarity in 15 cities across Greece, San Francisco in the USA (and elsewhere? please report) demand his release.
This blog will be carrying first-hand reports from today’s solidarity actions in Athens and Patras. If you have reports from any of the other cities where solidarity gatherings will be taking place, please post them here or e-mail us.
