Nikos Maziotis and Pola Roupa are two of the anarchists imprisoned in relation the Revolutionary Struggle case. As we published earlier, Nikos had gone on hunger strike, demanding access to the hospital where Pola Roupa would be giving birth and also, access to visits to her and their son at the female wing of Korydalos prison in Athens.
Today’s news from Athens IMC:
The hunger strike by Nikos Maziotis and Kostas Gournas ended a few hours ago, along with the abstaining from meals by approximately 90 prisoners across the country; they were abstaining in support of the demand of Nikos Maziotis to visit his newly-born child.
Nikos Maziotis was transferred this morning to the Alexandra hospital in Athens and visited his comrade and partner Pola Roupa, who gave birth to their son yesterday with good care and without the presence of the anti-terrorist unit at any stage of the procedure. It is almost certain that Nikos’ second demand, to be visiting Pola in Korydalos prison, will also be met.
