Solidarity demonstration with the 300 migrant hunger strikers as they enter the 25th day of their strike

What is undoubtedly one of the most important social struggles in Greece in recent times is fully underway: the migrant hunger strikers in Athens and Thessaloniki are entering the 25th day of their strike today. Already yesterday, in Athens alone, three of them were taken to hospital with serious health problems – where they nevertheless continue their strike.

On Friday, 18.2, a solidarity demonstration has been called that will  commence from the Archaeological Museum (diagonally opposite from the building where the migrants are staying) at 6pm and will head, after the migrants’ own plea, to the Ministry of Interior – the exact government body that keeps them hostage all these years. The migrants’ struggle is a crucial one for the dignity of our movement and the solidarity between us.
