"While 100 hunger strikers are in hospitals of Athens and Thessaloniki (Wednesday evening), the government attempts to support its politically stale intransigence with the only weapons that are left: lies and slander. Futile effort though. This “state that is trying to triumph with an endless screech” is presented weak in front of the spirit and ethos of the 300 hunger strikers, who are struggling with the core of existence that always remains inalienable from power as their only weapon.

Every day that passes, the political gesture of migrants hunger strikers have more and more recipients. More and more people understand that this struggle that is going on for 38 days now in Hypatia (building in central Athens), Thessaloniki’s Labor Center and hospitals, is not just a struggle against the apartheid that foreign workers suffer. It is a struggle of all workers against the organized misery that strangles the present and plunders the future.

It remains now for the government to take the decisions. Either to accept the obvious or to take its own position in the book of ferocity.
