#77 | Moscow, Hamburg, Vilnus, London, San Francisco, Belgrade and dozens of Greek cities say: Set Thodoros Iliopoulos free, NOW!

Monday, August 24 was the international day of solidarity with Thodoros Iliopoulos. With the fires raging across Greece, Thodoros had been seemingly unlucky in that those holding his life upon their hands, the very same people – and the State – that had imprisoned him, seemed as if they would get away with the slow death they are now imposing upon him: They are trying to leave Thodoros breathless. And yet on Monday, the 24th of August, we all became Thodoros’ breath: A banner in Moscow. A picket outside the greek embassy in Vilnus, Lithuania. A photocopied interview in San Francisco, a cry out on the streets of London, a gathering in Hamburg,  a molotov cocktail lighting up the summer night in Belgrade. A crystal-clear message: Mess with Thodoris and you mess with all of us. December’s revolt does not fit in their prisons, it cannot ever fall victim to state repression. Today, 27 August, dawns day 48 of Thodoros’ hunger strike. Danger for his very life is now imminent…
