The total number amounts to 4,400 prisoners in struggle. This is the most massive hunger strike that has ever taken place in Greek prisons.
Meanwhile, in Alikarnassos prison near Heraklion, Crete, all of the prisoners abstain from prison meals (as far as destitute inmates are concerned, this is almost the same as conducting hunger strike).
As of June 25th, 2014, CCF member Olga Ekonomidou has also joined the hunger strike from the women’s prison.
