Bristol No Borders: Solidarity Statement to Greek Hunger Strikers

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on Wednesday, 2 February, 2011 by bristolnoborders

On January 25, 300 migrant workers went on hunger strike in Athens and Thessaloniki.
Their main demand is to be legalized. As of 2nd Feburary their struggle continues.

Messages have come from all around the World. We wish to add ours.

The Border between Greece and the Mediterranean Sea is one of the most heavily militarized in the World with the EU’s unaccountable and armed paramilitary security force – FRONTEX – patrolling, now not only the seas, but more recently. the border between Turkey and Greece..

Hundreds have perished in the seas, some having their boats deliberately capsized by FRONTEX patrols..

Those who make it (and those who don’t) are actively challenging the rationale of the securitization of our borders and the social and economic inequalities that they protect.

We send our message of thanks to the hunger strikers for standing up to the brutality of the border regime(s) that will sooner or later effect us all.

New Newsletter! – Movement #1

The No Borders UK Newsletter has been rotated around local No Borders  groups for the last few years. Last month’s  network gathering in London, signalled that it is now our turn to produce the publication. We  intend to create a more regular and broad based periodical, drawing in others that work to end the inhuman cycle of detention, deportation and death through the abolition of migration control. As a statement of intent we are re-naming and re-launching!
