The revolt that erupted during the last few days (in Chania and Thiva prisons primarily) is one more link in the incessant fight against the officialised penal barbarity in Greece, a struggle that is bound to peak again as long as the promises made by the government after the unprecedented prisoners struggle of last Autumn are systematically broken.   Immigrants are disproportionally hit by the vengeful penal system in Greece. One of the incidents that sparkled the Chania prison insurgency was that 20 immigrant prisoners had been kept locked naked for two days in the isolation chamber.  

Below are some links with info and documentation  in English about the recent events
