Police Arrest Dozens in Athens at Ministry of Culture During Protest in Solidarity With Koufontinas Hunger Strike

Dozens of protesters occupied the entrance of the Ministry of Culture of Greece in Karytsi, Athens, in solidarity with Dimitris Koufontinas and against the state’s defense of an actor exposed as a pedophile, Dimitris Lignadis. Police swiftly arrived on the scene, arresting everyone and clearing the area.

Dimitris Koufontinas is a former member of the 17 November left-wing urban guerilla serving a life sentence, who entered a hunger strike on the 8th of January to demand his return to the Korydallos prison in Athens after being forced into a high-security facility without notice.
