Statement by Kostas Gournas from the hospital in Lamia:
I am no longer able to cope with this demanding hunger strike because I have exhausted my physical abilities to do so, owing to chronic health problems. I consider today’s submission of the bill,* which initiates the fulfillment of some of our demands, to be the minimum threshold for suspending the strike.
Victory to the hunger strike of political prisoners.
Lamia, April 1st, 2015
* translation note: the prison reform bill was submitted to parliament by the ministry of justice on April 2nd, but it has not yet been referred to the competent committee for consideration of proposed amendments, so it may take long before the bill is debated and voted on
