Statement by Arash Hampay, August 7, 2017

Forty days,
I have gone through forty days of hunger and I still have not reached a number of days that grants freedom and justice. I still do not know such a number that grants justice. I do not know when I am going to reach that number, but I won’t stop, I will continue as always. I will not sit down from this struggle for a nice breath of rest. I have thousands of years of rest after my death. Yet I do not have enough time for freedom and justice. I will use this short time and I will go further, towards freedom, towards justice, and towards light. I will not stand for a single moment. I am so thirsty for freedom and justice that I have not thought about resting at all. I desire freedom, I thirst freedom, I thirst.
