Thursday 14th: 43 days have passed since the day that the greek government promised to grant asylum status to the iranian asylum seekers that were on hunger strike in front of the Office of the High Commissioner of UNHCR since July 19 and yet no respond from Greek government. As they announced before, the Iranian Political Asylum seekers went on a harder strike against inhuman and unjust actions done by Greek government. 5 men and 1 woman from this campaign sewed their mouth and the rest of the group (beside children) went on hunger strike since Thursday 14th.
Friday 15th: Greek police attacks the members of Campaign
Watch this video and see how the members of Campaign who are on hunger strike and some of them have sewed their mouth are treated by racist police!
