So far forty-five people are thought to already be behind bars awaiting trial (with twenty-five of them being immigrants). Fifteen of them have already been confirmed:
• Ten people are being held at Koridalos prison in Athens
• Four people at Avlona, and
• One person at Diavata
In an attempt to rise money/show solidarity to all arrestees of December’s social apprising, a series of solidarity events including concerts have and are still taking place all over Greece.
Edinburgh financial aid to those arrested
The rest of the money will be given directly to the Open assembly for Solidarity to the Arrestees of the Greek Uprising within next week.
Information on the financial needs of those arrested are still relatively limited. One main reason is that a considerable amount of the cases has not reached the court yet. It is expected, however, that in the forthcoming months, there should be a clearer view on the number of those arrested, the charges they face, as well as any courts’ decisions.
