Protesters took to the streets and clashed with police in the center of Athens on Tuesday afternoon to express support with jailed terrorist Dimitris Koufodinas.
Earlier in the day, self-styled anarchists barged into the building housing the state-run Athens-Macedonian News Agency in Athens, chanting slogans in favor of the terrorist.
According to reports, the troublemakers carried a smoking flare into the building, scattered flyers and hung a banner off a balcony after making their way up to the first floor. They left the building before the police had a chance to arrive and clear them out.
Koufodinas, 63, has been on hunger strike for more than a month, demanding that he be transferred to the Greek capital’s Korydallos Prison from a maximum-security facility in Domokos, central Greece.
He has been convicted to 11 life sentences plus 25 years for his role as hitman of the now-defunct November 17 terrorist organization.
His deteriorating health has spurred a wave of support from anarchist and other anti-establishment groups.
