In this event the comrades from “ABC – Solidarity Cell” will talk about the importance of solidarity to anarchist prisoners the solidarity endeavors and the connection of struggles inside and outside the walls. Further it will contain a deconstruction of the meaning of anarchist movement and the myth of the district of Exarchia.

It will be also possible to raise questions to the comrades in prison, so the communication will be communication in both directions.

Some words from anarchist prisoner Panagiotis Argyrou dedicated to the ABC Festival:

There are times when you feel a certain kind of strength inside you. This may be happening for different reasons each time ,but undoubtly it is always a very positive feeling . Such a kind of strength may feel a prisoner when he/she discovers that there are other individuals wanting a touch, a contact, a communication , a conversation with him/her. It is a very strong feeling , a unique one, the feeling of a great strenght filling you all over and this is something priceless. This feeling that you are not alone , that there are other comrades wanting to share moments, experiences or whatever, with you , is something so valuable that only freedom itself can compare with. So let me thank you very much for the opportunity you offer me to have some contact even if it is for so little. I wish future bring us more oppurtunities so that one day we can have the chance to have a live talk outside the walls. A big warm hug, Panagiotis Argyrou, member of CCF-FAI
