The imprisoned refugees Bahrooz Arash and Kozhin Hussein stopped their hunger strike a few days ago. But that doesn’t mean the struggle for their release is over. Tomorrow, Saturday the fifth of August there will be protests in front of the Moria prison camp. People will meet on Sappho square in Mytilini (Lesvos, Greece) at 05:30pm to take a bus to Moria. The protest will start at 06:30pm in front of the Moria prison camp.
The hunger strikers have been detained without trial for months now and although they stopped their hunger strike, they are still in a critical condition. Bahrooz Arash and Kozhin Hussein stopped their hunger strike because they lost 30% of their body weight and authorities denied them access to basic medical care. The authorities were pushing them to death. They demand the release of all illegally imprisoned refugees.
On their Facebook page No Borders Kitchen Lesvos wrote: “Be aware that this is a peaceful protest, and think carefully about whether you want to be involved in a political demonstration outside Moria. But if you feel able, it would be great to see as many people as possible in front of Moria raging against the inhumane imprisonment of these brave human rights activists.”
Some people of the Enough is Enough team will join Cars of Hope on their mission in Greece (Athens) later this month. Support refugees in Greece! Crowdfunding campaign: Click at the banner (at the left) to donate.
