Critical moments for the 300 migrants hunger strikers in Athens and Thessaloniki on their 38th day of hunger strike. 100 of them are already hospitalized while the government waits for the first deaths.

"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.

Solidarity Initiative to the 300 migrants on hunger strike"

The mass murder of infants and women by the Greek state outside the island Farmakonisi is not an individual incident and absolutely not a tragedy, since ignorance is required for a tragedy to happen. It is one more result of the conscious murderous policy of Greece concerning the borders. Favored and motivated by the European Union policy of “Fortress Europe”, Dublin II Treaty, the formation of FRONTEX, Greece has installed a murderous mechanism in land and sea, whose stated target is in the best case the torture and in the worst the death of immigrants travelling towards Europe.

I want to be treated as a human being – like the Greeks. When we will get papers, I will not anymore be afraid of police and I can work legally with an insurance. But most of the time I think now: what will happen if the government does not give an answer? (Arqal, hunger striker in Athens)

imageThe Nightmare Life: Migrants tales from Greece Aug 25 by Costas Avramidis 0 comments

Racism is definitely not a "new fruit" in Greek society and not a unique phenomenon to this country. I have witnessed it with my own eyes as it manifested throughout the years I was living there so I can share with you a little knowledge of how it ripens.

In Greece being different is not a good thing, as you will suffer a lot if you are a minority! Your life will be a living hell, if you are a woman or find yourself in a minority like being a lesbian, gay, gypsy, Pakistani, Albanian, Egyptian, Bulgarian, Ukrainian, Nigerian... In other words it will take a lot of effort to escape being discriminated against and that's without mentioning the people that are prepared to stand up for all these people, the likes of socialists, autonomists, anarchists, people that volunteer in NGO's or anyone that cherishes humanism/altruism. For people to fit in, in a land the locals like to call Hellas (and of the sun) to survive within it is to stay silent and live life in a comatose state.
