On 25th of January 2011, 300 migrants started with a hunger strike. It is a struggle for equal rights to life, carried out by those who want to be no longer invisible. The preparation meeting for the transnational migrants strike on 1st of March in Vienna declares it's solidarity with the hunger strikers. We are on your side!
From the greek government we claim the immediate end of the repression against a legitim protest and an end of the everyday's exclusion. Moreover we condemn the criminalisation of supporters, which only happens as attempt at intimidation and to hold off people to join the protests.
We claim the immediate realization of the demands of the migrants in greece and all over Europe. It's time to stop the racist exclusion as well in the interior as on the borders. It's time to start a turning: In driection to the point of equal rights and privileges for anyone.
A transnational migrants strike is called for 1st of March 2011 - like one year before. To show the common interests of migrants, their struggles will be bundled on this day. And we want to point: This struggles are everyday struggles for many people - and can't be reduced to one day.
The dream of the hungerstriking migrants, "some day, to have equal rights with our Greek fellow workers", has to become reality!
