According to the Support Group of Salamanca, who visited the prisoner together with her mother, Noelia stopped the hunger strike on Saturday, January 26th. Nevertheless, medical malpractice continues. She is still very thin but content to hear that people are expressing their solidarity outside the walls (e.g. protest mobilizations are scheduled in Madrid). Noelia was also pleased with her mother’s visit.

here, it is mentioned that Noelia never stopped the hunger strike, only made a pause on the 25th and the 26th of January — on the 5th of February, a doctor made a blood test and told her of the coma she would face if she would not eat, but details about the hunger strike are not specified
here, it is explained that Noelia resumed the hunger strike on the 27th of January because her visits had been banned once again
here, it is mentioned that, since the 6th of February, Noelia abandoned the hunger strike, started eating again, and runs high risk of hypoglycemic coma, plus she suffers further ill-treatment in the prison
on the 7th of February a solidarity gathering was held in Madrid, and on Sunday, February 10th there will be a march of solidarians to the Brieva hellhole
On Friday, February 8th, it was reported that the beatings on Noelia continue, as she’s being threatened so that she will withdraw her just claims. The food she’s been provided with turns her ill, but Noelia cannot afford buying anything from the prison store, thus funds are being raised to enable her to buy some ‘healthier’ food staples. Also, on Friday, another solidarity gathering took place in Madrid where approximately 40 people attended, and 15 out of them underwent identity checks by cops.
NOELIA NO ESTAS SOLA
Noelia, you are not alone!
