After 4-hour counter-information protest by hundreds of anarchists in the center of Athens in solidarity to anarchists Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailides that are on hunger strike, the demo ended at Exarchia where around the polytechnic school of Athens there are flaming barricades. 

Nikos Romanos is on hunger strike since 10 November 2014, held in Gennimatas hospital in Athens, Greece following the rapid deterioration of his health.

Nikos Romanos is demanding to be able to make use of educational leaves to attend university classes, while by studying in prison he has succeeded in the admission exams. Any other prison inmate is entitled to university prison leaves that Romanos is denied, because of his anarchist political beliefs. The greek State also punishes him because of his defiant stance in denying to attend an award ceremony where the greek Minister of Justice handed awards to prison inmates that succeeded in the university ebtrance exams.

Nikos is currently in Athens general hospital Gennimatas, under a strong custody of the police. Physician Pantelia (Lina) Vergopoulou, who visited him on 28/11, reports that the comrade remains in a critical condition with life-threatening complications.
