Leftist protesters are marching in Athens in support of the terrorist group “November 17” Dimitris Koufontinas on Monday.
The latest march comes in support of Koufontinas who has been on a hunger strike demanding to be transferred to the Korydallos prison in Athens. The protesters after first gathering at the Syntagma, are heading through the University to Omonia Square.
There is a strong police presence as the march is in progress.
On Friday, riot police in the Greek capital used water cannon and tear gas to disperse a protest in solidarity with the jailed leftist.
Koufontinas, a former member of the now-defunct extreme leftist November 17 group, went on a hunger strike at the beginning of January to demand a prison transfer.
Koufontinas was sentenced to life in prison for 13 murders committed between 1975 and 2000 when he acted as a hitman for the organisation.
